Random Tuesday Thoughts


I don’t really do football, but I make a point to watch the Grey Cup and the Super Bowl even though I'm really only watching for the musical acts and commercials. The economy sucks so the commercials were kind of ‘meh’ this year and thanks to Janet Jackson and her boob the Americans are too scared to put anyone on stage that isn't some really old guy now. Seriously, Bruce Springsteen? In the last few years since boobgate they've had Paul McCartney, Tom Petty...even Prince for crying out loud. They really can't think of anyone slightly more relevant? I know those guys are 'legends' and all that but enough already. It was just a boob people! Lighten up.

I’m excited about my trip to BC this weekend! Politika has a daughter the same age as mine (they are three) and all I want to do is dress them in matching clothes for some reason. That kind of kind of thing is usually a little too ‘cute’ for me, but I’m dying to do it anyway. Weird, huh?

I want to drive to Ontario and punch that groundhog in the face for telling me I have to live through winter for another six weeks. Every year I’m hopeful, and interestingly enough in 35 years of living on the prairies winter has never once ended by the middle of February. Curse that stupid rodent for taunting me with hope every year.

I died my hair red and that seems to have helped with the old lady factor. And I figured out how to style it without looking like a television sitcom mom, so it’s starting to grow on me. A little. I still regret cutting it though.

I’ve been thinking about my Winnipeg friends a lot lately – Erin, Tobi, Rickie…..I would like them to come and visit me. Well, Erin is in Vegas now, so I think I’ll go visit her. As for the other two…come on over ladies! Well, maybe it would be better to do it in the spring. We can spend two days on the deck drinking and then jump on the trampoline like idiots when the kids are asleep. Hey, don’t knock it; it’s a pretty decent workout.

How many people out there have heard this before -

"I don't have close friendships with women. They don't really like me because I'm too pretty. It's a lot easier to hang out and work with men"

Hey, you know what? It's not because you're too pretty. It's because you're kind of a fucking bitch. The men think you're a fucking bitch too, but they continue to suffer through your inane nonsense in hopes that some day you will have sex with them.

Now it's time to go see Keely who will be able to hook you up with more Tuesday randomness. Speaking of Keely (who by the way manages to be loads pretty and not at all a fucking bitch), her potty mouth is finally being recognized for all its vulgar glory. Today is the last day to cast a vote for her in the mom dot 'best use of a cuss word' award. I love that Americans say 'cuss'. It's so cute.

Okay - go vote now!

We have a Saskatchewan rodent, too, you know. I think it lives by Wadena. Interestingly, she hedges her bets and has never predicted an early spring (she's a rodent but she's not stupid).

It took me a long time to be pretty and NOT a fucking bitch, so thanks for sticking with me ;)

The commercials were pretty lame but don't knock Bruce. Actually, he was pretty fucking old too.

Please don't dress the girls in matching outfits. If you do, I'll be forced to point and laugh if I ever see them together.

Stupid groundhog. What kind of fucking holiday is that anyway? If they gave everyone off of work, I'd be happier about it. I don't work so I don't know why that would make me happy though.

Let's see the red picture.

That chick does sound like a fucking bitch. Who said that?

My senior quote-

"Don't hate me because I'm Beautiful, hate me because I know it"

I wrote it because I was making fun of someone but everyone assumed I meant me. I just went with it...

I kinda like the Boss, but I agree with you in general. We need cooler half time shows.

And I have definitely heard the I'm too pretty to have girlfriends thing - it's a big red flag to run the other way.

Stacy's Random Thoughts said...

Halftime just isn't the same since the collective gasp of the old fogey's being upset about Janet Jackson's boob exposure. so you won't look like the Brady Bunch's mom? Do you now look like Lucy? ;)

OMG! I have known (and avoided like a plague) those same pretty-but-a-major-bitch people...

Happy Randomness! ;)

Football in general is a little too slow and boring for me, but if they had topless halftime shows, I might reconsider.

I think we may have had a rodent out in BC once, but we fed that bitch to a Killer Whale. Didn't predict THAT did ya?

I just read your post on the February flowers. So funny! I'm jealous you get to go to a warmer place...the forecast for Chicago is a high of 14 degrees tomorrow. Blech!

Shangrila said...

LOL-"It was just a boob people! Lighten up." Amen, Sister! As for the "pretty bitches"-could you please have your second-to-last paragraph printed out onto greeting cards?! I want to send 'em to some people instead of Christmas cards this year! Too funny!

I never watch the Superbowl or the half time show, even the famed boob incident sounds pretty uninteresting, really it's a nipple, we all have them right. Now a third eye, that would have been unsettling. A third eye in place of a nipple is just good television.

You bet your fucking ass ( or Brangelina's for that matter) that I will visit for deck drinks and a jump or 2 on the trampoline...and to revisit 2 sweet months spent in Regina circa 1995....Is April too early??
