Random Thoughts and a Happy New Year

It's Random Tuesday again. Christmas is almost here and I will be on a blog hiatus as I am sure many of you will as well.  I hate to leave you with something so scattered as this post, but in case I can't come up with something on Wednesday have a Merry Christmas.

  • I tried out this nugget last week at Otin's blog. I feel lit is ready for a wider audience so here it is. When I was a kid we learned the planets using the phrase My Very Energetic Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas. Now that Pluto has been demoted what happens to our beloved learning tool? I say we change it to Just Served Us Nachos. You could use nectarines or nuts if you prefer a healthier alternative.
  • My next post will be number 200. December 28th will be my one year anniversary of writing on this blog.  I am reaching blogging milestones. That seems odd to me.
  • When you search Braden does most anything on YouTube you get hundreds of videos of various Braden's doing varying degrees of stupid things. If you search Braden eats the first two videos are our son Braden. I think that is an accurate depiction of what Braden finds important.
  • I had someone find my blog by searching "does the dad stay with the mom otter". If you are still searching for the answer out there you little seeker of knowledge I want to tell you that this one certainly does. As for the furry ones, you need to call Jim Fowler.
  • I spent an hour today trying to fix my site map at google. Does that tell you anything about how much work I am doing this holiday season?
  • In fact we should just get it over with and close for the year. This pretending to have something important to do charade is just getting tiring.
  • I think I am addicted to Wii bowling. I hope there is a cure that doesn't involve costly therapy.
  • I put up a random picture last week for RTT and I think I will continue the trend today. This stuff is supposed to be random anyway. Every time Braden starts riding this train I start singing "Riding that train...." Then I stop. I need to find a replacement for that next line.

Yeah- congrats on your number 200 and your 1 year blogversary :)

Have a great day!

Anne said...

That is a great photo! Enjoy your holiday. At least your Braden isn't doing stupid things on YouTube. Let's hope the trend continues.

Those are some very cool Batman 'jamas!

I'm still using Pluto. Call it a sympathy planet.

Mocha Dad said...

The real question is does the mom otter stay with the dad while he is fixing his Google site map and playing Wii Bowling?

Jack said...

Congratulations on reaching 200 posts. One year down, 49 to go. ;)

Mama Badger said...

Oh, yeah. Maybe singing dead songs to the wee ones isn't such a hot idea... Though the teachers at our school enjoyed LG's rendition of "Funky Town" a few weeks ago.

I do believe I will adopt your new Pneumonic for the planets. Nachos it is.

Happy Holidays!

Good random. I'd like my company to call it a wrap for the year as well but people keep coming in and buying things. Damn them.

I'll try nachos with the kids (seems moms are most excellent when they are serving junk food)

Merry Christmas!

I'm glad that you started this blog and are slacking at work. Congrats on almost 1 year & almost 200 posts.

I agree, Wii bowling is quite addictive and my Mii is so much better at baseball than I ever was.

Mike said...

Congrats on the milestones. Yeah, you really need to change that "train line"...Happy Holidays from the sunny So Cal gang to yours..Mike

Santa Claus said...

I need to kick Otin's but for being late!

You are hung up on the planet thing LOL!!

Blogging milestones, I've reached a few.

Rob said...
