10 Random Things for a Friday

  1. I am having a Goo Goo Dolls kind of week. Up. Down. A "no time left for losers" kind of week. One of those weeks when you play ballads because they sell but then you play YOUR kind of Rock because that is what you love. Do you understand what I mean?
  2. I haven't been down to look at the garden all week. I made a trek Thursday night just to go look at it. There are a lot of weeds. I think I'll stay up by the house.
  3. I have only been buying 20 oz bottles of Diet Coke this week. Single serving size. I keep telling myself I'm going go try and ditch the stuff. So I haven't committed myself to a whole 12 pack. My friend Kurt has been nice enough to remind me that it is poison. He's ruined the stuff for me. Then yesterday I spent about $4.50 on the stuff because I bought 3 of them. I think I should just go buy the 12 pack.
  4. I'll be better when I'm older. I just don't know when that will be.
  5. Anybody want to come take pictures of the 3 of us? We need an informal picture to put on the wall. And it's pretty hard to take a picture with yourself in it. And I have an idea in my head of what I want it to look like. And it's not something you'll get at Olin Mills. Are there even any Olin Mills studios anymore?
  6. We lost another book from the library. I wonder if they'll give me credit against the last book that we lost and then found and then returned and then they wouldn't give me my money back for?
  7. my password for a program we use at work is 'ru9uthap'. Where the heck did someone come up with that?
  8. Granite City has blueberry beer again. Super Dave said we'd go there on Tuesday. And he rescheduled for Wednesday and then canceled Wednesday and we haven't rescheduled. I was going to go fill the growler last night. But that didn't happen either. Had to settle for the last Leinie's Summer Shandy in the fridge.
  9. I need to take in flowers for my desk. It is a ugly sea of white paper everywhere. Either that or I just need to clean up the desk.
  10. Taking prop ideas for the Babe's 4 year old pictures. Last year we took a big cupcake and a couple of balloons. Any ideas?
I'm burnt. No idea why. Fried mentally. No clue as to what is causing it. Sorry if the 10 this week reflect that. But it's one of those weeks. As was referenced yesterday in the vodka post. Which by the way I did wait until I got home to drink.

Have a glorious 4th. See if you can get a good picture of fireworks. I suck at taking them. But every year I try. Let me know if it works out for you! I'm going to try this and see where I get.

Sounds like you could use a new camera, one with a 'fireworks' setting (my Kodak works pretty good for that) and a self-timer so you can take pictures with you in them.

I have a great camera. I just need to learn how to use it better. :)

I want Blueberry Beer and Summer Shanty...and I'm not a beer drinker. I would be willing to attempt to take your informal pic...maybe we can barter with some a/c in a car! ;)
