Random Tuesday Thoughts: Favorite Post

Apparently I have been less than random for a few weeks. That must be why I haven't put together one of these posts. I don't like being orderly so let's get back to it with another Random Tuesday Thoughts.

randomtuesday


  • During the second game of a softball double header Friday night I heard an 18 year old kid complain that he was tired from playing his third straight game. Good thing I was too tired to punch him in the head. It is church league softball after all.
  • Braden has nearly mastered crawling. Now the sound track of my life sounds something like this: "No don't grab that. Where are you going? Come back here. I told you you couldn't have that. Please be still. Arica Help!"
  • I know the title is Random Tuesday Thoughts. I guess that's because Tuesday and Thoughts have a little alliteration thing going. I am much more random on Monday though. It is like my weekend mind is fighting with my rational work mind. Sometimes the fight goes the distance.
  • Will Ferrell is going to be on Man vs. Wild tonight. The pairing of crazy adrenaline junky survivalist Bear Grylls and crazy insane comedian Will Ferrell is quite possibly a stroke of genius. I am beyond excited.
  • I have a Dwight Schrute bobblehead on my desk. That makes me cool, right?
  • My office ran out of post-it notes. That's like a river running out of fish or the ocean running out of salt. How can this happen?
  • My elderly neighbor called us last week to share that a snake was in her yard heading our way. She doesn't miss anything.
  • I watched some episodes of Nature's Most Amazing Events on the Discovery Channel this weekend. Based on the show about Salmon I am starting to get worried that we may run out of delicious Pacific Salmon one day. To help sustain the Salmon population I ask the local Eskimos, Canadians, and Alaskans to please start eating more Grizzly bears.
After all that randomness I have a request for my readers. A few mom bloggers have asked to feature me or at least spotlight my little blog on Father's Day. Some have asked for links to my favorite posts. I don't have any idea which ones to choose. If you have a favorite please leave it in the comments section. I am too lazy to create a poll so I hope you all have a good memory. If you need ideas just look at the posts listed on the left of the page under each month. I would love to know which of my efforts you find least repulsive. Thanks.

That sounds like me following my son around: "No, sir...that's not yours...CJ leave that alone...no, that is Momma's phone...CJ!"

Running out of Post-It Notes? No!!!! Call the National Guard, stat!

Ha! Wait until he learns to walk. And then run. And really climb.

Manic Mommy said...

Will you still read me if I tell you I don't know who Dwight Schrute is?

Also, I beseech you, add a contact email to your blogger profile. I (and probably others) often want to comment on the comments you leave but can't reach you back.

Jason said...

I was gonna ask who Dwight Schrute is as well...

I echo Green Jello's comment of if you're having this much fun with Braden when he's crawling, just imagine the joys of walking :D

Tom said...

Oh yeah. Once he gets up and start running, you are toast. Buy yourself a load of cabinet locks and childproofing equipment now.

"Grizzly: it's what's for dinner!" I like the way you think.

Otter Thomas said...

To everyone who wonders Dwight Schrute is a character on the NBC sitcom "The Office." He has a bobblehead of himself on his desk in the show. I have the same bobblehead. I think you have somewhat answered my question. If that many people don't know him then I must be a dork.

surprised mom said...

Ditto what Tom said, except maybe about the Grizzly. I've had deer meat, but I think I'd have to work up to grizzly. Ever taste it?
Ah, the crawling. Yep, it exhausting . . . on the parents! Walking and running aren't far behind. What fun! I have a feeling Braden is going to give you a run for your money! And sorry, I didn't know who Dwight Schrute was either.
Do you have an email address so I can look over your posts and let you know my favorites?

Swoozie said...

Seems your elderly neighbor really doesn't miss a thing! The fact that she called you about the snake is just killing me! LOL!

Psssttttt! The younger kids somehow come off as being whiny complainers. Pass it on.....

Jenni said...

will ferelly and bear grylls? i'm fairly certain one of them winds up dead.

Momo Fali said...

I would like to see Will Ferrell and Dwight Schrute on Man vs. Wild. Let's just leave Bear out of this and have some laughs.

Jan said...

Crawling? Walking? Pshaw. I'll just sit here and smile sweetly and think about how you should enjoy all of that while you can, because one day he'll be a TEENAGER. That, my dear, is when you really earn your parental stripes.

Oh, and please tell me you and your wife are going to try for a daughter - you haven't lived until you've lived through a 14-year-old girl.

Keely said...

Mmmm, grizzly.

I'm currently operating to that same soundtrack. Even I get sick of hearing myself say 'no' and 'stop that'. No wonder toddlers have tantrums.

Melisa with one S said...

Watched MEN vs. Wild. Loved it. Wish they would have stayed out there for longer than 48 hours. Pretty funny!

Casey said...

I love that your neighbor is on the neighborhood snake watch. How can an office run with no post-it notes? Think of all the naked monitors...

mannequin said...

oh gosh, I'm with Casey. That's so endearing of your elderly neighbor to warn you of impending doom.
Oh man....she even spotted a snake in the grass.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

I'm still laughing about your neighbor warning you that a snake was headed your way...her name isn't Mrs. Kravitz by any chance, is it? ;)

No post-it notes - I wonder if work slowed to a crawl because of it...

Wonder if Grizzly Bear tastes like chicken? ;)

Happy RTT 2 days late! :)
