Random Thoughts for a Wednesday Afternoon

I appreciate the kind words many of you have left.

Honey Mustard asked me last night if I really wanted to stop the blog… I thought for a moment and told her; ‘I don’t know. At times I feel like I want to keep it going, other times I want to stop.”

So who knows what’s going to happen.

You can view this edition of Random Thoughts for a Wednesday Afternoon one of two ways; my Random Swan Song… or just another Random post…

  • Can someone please tell Pat Robertson to STFU?? Anyone?? Please, I’m begging you…
    Let’s all keep Scott’s son in our thoughts and prayers while he goes through some medical testing to find out what’s going on with his stomach.
  • For some reason this morning, as I was working, the movie “The Girl, the Gold Watch & Everything” popped into my head… strange, huh?
  • Fark Headline of the Day: "A woman has become the Tower of London's first ever female Beefeater." Ya know, sometimes… the jokes just write themselves…
  • Twin moms!! How would you like it if THIS happened to you??? A set of twins were the celebrated last baby of 2006 AND first baby of 2007. A set of twins born at Boston's New England Medical Center Sunday night accomplished this feat when the girl twin was born at 11:58 pm Sunday night (December 31st) and the boy twin was born at 12 AM, Monday (January 1st). Twins with different birthdays… interesting…
  • If you were a teenage boy (or girl for that matter), and saw the headline: “Cheerleaders Run Amok in Texas", wouldn’t you immediately book a flight to Texas? I know I will would…
  • Is it just me, or is New Years Eve drastically overrated?
  • Is it just me, or are the Chicago Bears drastically overrated?
  • With the change in Congress taking place tomorrow (whoo-hoo!!), why do I get the feeling that Lumpyhead’s Mom is going to be posting less and less…
  • Phrases that brought people to my little corner of the blogosphere: “To Kill a Mockingbird by Harpee Lee” (that’s Harper!), “+"day after day" +appears +"night after night" +heart +"fade away"” (uh… okay), “edmund fitzgerald sinking reason” (quick reason: lots of water), “PMS irritable” (not even gonna touch that one…), “twelve weeks pregnant twins morning sickness worsening”, “lyrics for with cords” (uh, I think you meant chords… do they not teach spelling in school anymore??)
  • Today’s gratuitous word or phrase to get people to my blog (not that it ever works though): radiculopathy disc herniation
  • High temperature of 48 degrees today… in Chicago… in January… is it just me or is there something fundamentally wrong with that?
  • This week’s gratuitous blog-plug of the week is:
  • Mental iPod song of the day: Johnny Cash’s “Hurt” from American IV: The Man Comes Around
I hurt myself today
to see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
the only thing that's real
the needle tears a hole
the old familiar sting
try to kill it all away
but I remember everything

what have I become?
my sweetest friend
everyone I know
goes away in the end
and you could have it all
my empire of dirt

I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of thorns
upon my liar's chair
full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
beneath the stains of time
the feelings disappear
you are someone else
I am still right here

what have I become?
my sweetest friend
everyone I know
goes away in the end
and you could have it all
my empire of dirt

I will let you down
I will make you hurt

if I could start again
a million miles away
I would keep myselfI would find a way

I refuse to look at this as a swan song. Nope. Not gonna do it. You are NOT going away. So there.

Becky said...

By the way, if Pat Robertson is hearing voices, why the hell is anyone listening to his?

Khyle said...

The Bears can't be overrated until they lose in their first game.

Mr Big Dubya said...

The Bears certainly can be overrated - I thought I had seen shades of '86. Not so much anymore.

And, dude, you can't go anywhere - I need my Random Thoughts, my PB&J fix and who else is gonna play movie lines with me?

Sarah, Goon Squad Sarah said...

Tell Scott I hope everything is okay with his son.

I've TRIED to tell Pat to shut up a million times, but he doesn't care what heathens have to say.

If it weren't for fumblasaurus Rex they wouldn't be overrated. Hell, the Ravens won a Super Bowl with TRENT FUCKING DILFER.

(Can I play movie lines with you and Dubya?)

Lumpyheadsmom said...

I'm afraid I'll be posting much less, not just because of the Democratic takeover of Congress (I know you like it when I say that, so I said it just for you) but also because of the pending doubling of offspring. We'll see.

Becky said...

Sarah, have you tried voodoo dolls on PR? I'm out of ideas except for, you know, pretending he doesn't exist. Like ... I don't BELIEVE in him, so he's not really there. Sorta like Lumpyhead's Mom and her shitty party guests.

And, LM, what's all this talk of unblogging? Stop it. Don't you know that once you check in you can never check out?
