10 Random Things for a Friday

  1. Until last weekend, I did not know what a corpse flower is or that Houston was the 4th largest city in the US. Thank you to Chookooloonks for filling me in.
  2. When a hotel tells you that their conference room will seat 100 people, they are usually exaggerating. What they mean is you can cram 100 people into the room if you don't want anybody to be able to move around or leave to go to the bathroom or turn around to talk to the person behind them. Plan on about 70. If they say 100. Plan for 70.
  3. Kewpie dolls kind of freak me out. They look like they could come alive at any minute and run around the room screeching their little Kewpie screeches. Or whining. Either is equal in my "no high pitched noises tolerance" head. I think the whining would be worse though. And why is it you rarely ever find a Kewpie doll with clothes on? Is it a prerequisite that they either be naked or in some creepy crocheted outfit? And then Pioneer Woman went and posted a picture of Kewpie dolls stuffed in a box on a wall. And it was in my Google Reader Feed. And I read it on Wednesday night. And the night just went downhill from there.
  4. My bedroom looks like the laundry room exploded. I actually think it might have. but I really need to clean it all up. because I need to vacuum in there. That and I can't find my favorite T-shirt. It's got to be in there somewhere.
  5. It took me 4 tries to spell vacuum right.
  6. The Babe and Son2 and I made no-bake cookies on Monday night. Actually... Son2 read me the recipe off of the computer because I was too lazy to write it down. and the Babe cried because I wouldn't let her stir the chocolate on the stove. and then she cried because I wouldn't let her eat the cookies when they were still so hot they'd burn your fingers. and then she wouldn't go to bed until they cooled and she could have one. Which serves me right for making no-bakes at 8:30 at night on a Monday. And let me just state for the record that the whole darn thing was Mistry's fault anyway. Because she is the one that is always talking about no-Bake cookies. So there.
  7. I had to get a new debit card because I had fraud activity on the old one. I forgot to update the card info on my $12.95 Tivo account. They shut me off earlier this week. It took me most of about 90 seconds to update the card info on Tivo's website. It took me another 15 minutes to realize that I couldn't figure out how to find on their website how to update the Tivo box so that it knew I had paid. It then took me 39 minutes on hold and then talking to a real person to figure the whole thing out. Then there was nothing good on TV anyway.
  8. It irritates the carp out of me when people answer the phone and then are annoyed because they are busy doing something else and you are bothering them by calling them. THEN WHY DID YOU ANSWER THE PHONE?
  9. I have a Family Feud on Facebook problem. I even went so far as to log on to Hubby's Facebook account just so that I could play 3 more games. Yes. I know. Pit-i-ful.
  10. Son2 went home last night. I miss him already.
Many blessings my friends. Find a reason to have a couple of people over and have a beer on the back deck. If your week was anything like mine, you've earned it.
