Random Tuesday Thoughts: Long Wait

I have been working on these random thoughts for two weeks. You would think that they should be really good, but they are not. The thoughts aren't that plentiful either. I haven't been putting that much time or thought into them. They only lasted because I had to go out of town last week and didn't have time to post them. So here are this week's random thoughts after a long wait in the hopper.


randomtuesday


    • I was writing an outline at work trying to keep up with all the tasks I had to complete. I wrote down a, b, 3. I am losing my mind.
    • I just saw a study on the Internet that says NY drivers have been found the angriest, most aggressive drivers in the US. Way to put our money to good use. I have been doing some studies myself. I found that the sky is blue. Alaska is cold. Frenchmen are rude. And the government wastes my money on funding stupid studies.
    • Arica and I went to see our local minor league baseball team play last week. We had a great time. The only drawback was the fact that we apparently were placed in the kiddie section. We were at the end of a row that had about 10 kids. They crawled over us every single inning. I wanted to punt them down onto the field.
    • If I were a snake I would pray every night that I went to Louisiana when I died. That place is snake heaven.
    • Right now Cajun food ranks right up there with Italian food, and a big juicy steak as my all time favorite.
    • Arica watches "So You Think You Can Dance." That Mary chick has big teeth and screams way too much. It just needed to be said.
    • Lately I have noticed in my posts that I have used a lot of numbered lists. Apparently my inner engineering nerd is trying to get out and kill my inner blogging nerd. It should be a fun fight.
    • We went to the lake on Sunday and the water was hot. There is nothing like going to the lake for a refreshing dip and jumping into water that feels like a hot bath.
    • Random thoughts are a great way for the bad blogger to get a post up with minimum use of his time and his brain.

great random. I totally agree about Mary - I always fast forward through her. ANNOYING.

I'd like to know who gets these studies funded? They need to be beaten with reeds until they give the money back. With everything we need in this country more trivia knowledge does not rank that high.

Oh, Amen about the stupid, wasteful government studies. I laughed at your comment about the sky, Alaska and Frenchmen. And how much were you paid for your studies?
Actually, I'd like to jump in your warm lake. It's in the high 60s here and the wind is blowing from the north. It's a tad cool for the end of June.
Thanks for sharing your random thoughts.

What, the government is wasteful? I never knew...

As for Mary, good god, someone should silence her!! I almost feel bad for Nigel. She freaks my kid out, too (he'll be nodding off in his pack n play, and then she'll scream and he'll twitch...)

Number A: do NOT let the engineering nerd win! the blogging nerd must prevail. Your blog is a great read, and a very nice diversion from the engineering blather I have to slog through on a daily basis.

Item 2: Cajun and Creole food must be laced with something, because I agree: they are amazingly wonderful. Just a few nights in New Orleans and I was a changed man; never thought of Andouille sausage or Ocra the same since.

i too am disturbed by that screamer on "so you think you can dance".

she gives me the willy's. plus, i want to slap her into silence.

and punting ignorant children should be an allowable punishment.

lol! My dad is an engineer and it is so true. His grocery lists are done on the computer by isle. He shops Sat morning...he HAS to go on Sats. He freaks out if he has to modify his schedule...

LOL! Snakes love Florida too & our water is often like bath water!

Bee said...

Mary does scream a lot but what annoys me more is her face.

I will never go to Louisiana.

I like how you got away from numbered lists by going with unnumbered bullets. Nice work.

Your wife watches 'so you think you can dance?' I've heard that line before... like when I'm afraid to admit I watch certain shows (gossip girl) that my 'wife watches'. But I do agree Mary is totally annoying.
