This-n-That Thursday

The random little thoughts that have fluttered through my feeble mind this week:
  • In this Wall Street bailout, do you think they will reward those of us who work our butts off, pay our bills, and have a reasonable mortgage?  Like, please pay half of it?
  • Can we have the election now, please?
  • That whoopee cushion costume was his father's brainchild.  Now you may have an idea why we are no longer married.
  • I hate traveling lunges.
  • I don't like smelly stuff either.
  • Since they've banned plastic bags here, what am I supposed to is Bird going to put the cat litter in?
  • Why do my jeans roll over like that on top?
  • Is it just me, or are the squirrels particularly suicidal this year? And everywhere?
  • Remember that size 6x when you were little?  I was so excited when I went from a 6 to a 6x.  I remember my mother looking at me a little funny in the store.  Now I get it.  How on earth could a female celebrate going up a size? Surely this isn't my child, she thought.
  • How long can I go without a bra? 
  • Maybe I should ask the doctor for a prescription diuretic.  Nah, he won't give it to me.  He'll just tell me to cut back on my intake and increase my cardio.  The idiot.
  • Why is electrolysis so expensive?
  • Maybe I don't want to go to college with my kids. I think I see some light.
  • Those elastic-waisted pants aren't so ugly.  Are they?
  • How many calories are in a slightly dirty martini as opposed to a very dirty one?
Welcome to my brain.  I hope you enjoyed the little trip.  What did your little brain great mind contemplate this week?

TSannie said...

What in the hell is a traveling lunge???

And I loves me some elastic-waisted pants. Ugly, but who cares??

Mental P Mama said...

Flash--Those grubs might be deserving their own post...

Annie--Tonight, when you come over, we'll take our cocktails outside, and I'll teach you how to do a traveling lunge. Your buttocks will never be the same.

What did my brain do this week?
(Insert sound of crickets here, then whatever noise a tumbleweed may make when a good wind is behind it. Next, picture a bottle of wine, then my brain will actually sputter, and when it does, it says something like this:)

-What day is it today and where do the kids have to be and when?
-Will they call social services on me if I neglect my housework to the point of Beyond Squalor because, on my days off from work, all I do is sit in front of the computer reading blogs?
-Whose blog have I not visited yet today?
-What will I throw up on my own blog?
-What's for supper again?
-When is an acceptable time to start drinking wine?
-I really should step away from this computer and go to bed. Five more minutes.
-Ten more minutes, I promise.
-Just 30 more and then it will be midnight.
-Crap, alarm clock again?

Rinse and repeat.

I thought *I* was the only one who was excited to go to the 6 X size. Why was that x so important?? Was it a sign of growing up? No longer kid sizes? Not a clue, but I STILL remember being excited about it. Very, very strange...

bobbie said...

I like the way your brain works.
And you can go a looooonnnng time without a bra. I've given up on them

asthmagirl said...

I thought you meant a traveling lung... cuz your next bullet had something to do with smells!

I wore elastic waist pants yesterday. It was a good day.

Caution Flag said...

We have lots of suicidal squirrels, too. I always close my eyes when I drive by the squirrel leftovers thereby probably endangering any other living thing nearby.

Blog Around the World (BaTW) is a pretty neat project. I just wish I had known they were coming over today. I might have showered or gotten dressed.

My brain doesn't even bother to ask anymore...

Big Hair Envy said...

I couldn't wait to get into a size 6X. Now I'd like to think that I will once again see a plain old size 6!! I guess I need to do many more of those traveling lunges. Bummer.

What did my brain think about this week? When did my butt get way down there behind my knees? I swear these fall clothes fit me last year - stupid dryer.

Keetha said...

Like Annie, I, too, want to know what a traveling lunge is. How about I drop by for cocktails this afternoon?

Soccer tonight? Dinner to prepare? Homework? Spelling words? Housecleaning? Pshaw.

Cocktails with you girls sounds like way more fun.

Lisa J said...

Yeah, what is a traveling lunge? Glad I am not the only one that is clueless here!!! maybe you could post a picture of it after your cocktails tonight...????

Keeper Of All Things said...

You can go without a bra until one of your kids ask you if you have one on.......then you do have to put one on!!!

Deb said...

I'm with tsannie...what the hell is a traveling lunge? Wait...I'll go to Google...be right back. Ok, I'm back. It's excerise. Oh...ugh! I hate them too.
I refuse to wear elastic pants. I have not come to that, but I think my days are numbered!
Mmmmm...dirty martini...that is my favorite drink. However, when I want something sweet...I go for the Cosmo.
Is it 5 o'clock yet?

KD @ A Bit Squirrelly said...

The squirrels are always suicidal here in Squirrelly-Ville, One day Lizzard will cathc one, then their taunting won't seem so funny.

Oh and I remember when I was excited to get out of the little girls section and into Juniors section. Granted I was about 14 so...

Sassy said...

I really wish you lived closer to Arizona...I like how your brain works or doesn't work because we are very similar...only I don't drink...could you have one for me so I will feel better...as far as wearing a bra...hate them...I could go forever...just keep reaching for the stars...it keeps the boobs from sagging...I would love to be compensated for working my butt off...I can not stand BAD smelly stuff either and WHAT? No plastic bags??? Elastic pants are starting to sound better...I actually went to Weight Watchers and just paid last night and didn't weigh in...because well...you know...did you know you are allowed to do that I think once a month...I'm starting to pick up momentum...by the way Brody's surgery is Monday...wow I should have went to nursing school...I would be getting paid better...

Daryl said...

My brain has been on overload all week .. I emailed a report that was due on time and 4 hrs later got an email asking where it was .. when went to forward it so they could see it was sent in a timely manner, I discovered I sent it not to the person who needed it but to my boss ... sigh .. I guess thats better than emailing it to a stranger ....

As for bra thing ... have your nipples met your waist?

:-Daryl

Living on the Spit said...

Brain? What brain? I can't remember what I did with it last? LOL, I am loving your post...as usually.

WORKING MOM said...

I love your brain. It thinks just like mine!!!!

The stock market???I'm trying to ignore it, and I refuse to open my next statement.

Maybe you and I should go in on some black market water pills.

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

MPM- I think I have told you before, but I must repeat, YOU ROCKETH.

I get you. I just do.

We, apparently, share a brain.

Don't worry about the jean roll-over. They're making them with crappy denim these days. In the olden days, jeans stayed where you put them, you know, on that tiny little size 6x waist :-)

Why is electrolysis so painful? I can't do it. Ow.
Amen! Hallelujah!
Yes they are.

...Funny, we think alot alike. I thought the same thing too, wonderin' with this bailout if our mortgage was gonna be wiped clean...lol...NOT! :oD

...I don't remember the size thing when I was little. I do remember crying like there was no tomorrow because I had to start wearing a bra. It meant I wasn't a girl anymore, now I was a woman - yuck! And I thought it meant that I wouldn't be able to climb trees and run thru the woods anymore... And I remember my grandmother telling me if I didn't wear a bra that I would be a "floosie"...lol... Ahh, the memories...lol... ;o)

...And pray tell, what is a "traveling lunge"?

...Blessings... :o)

mental mama: Have you been sneaking around inside my head???

jojo said...

Oh wow...and I thought my brain was messed up...

noble pig said...

A traveling lunge? Wha?

I like your random brain!

Alias Liz Jones said...

Mental P Mama, my brain has been on a mini vaca. I do admit to wondering why the hay I watch the news until I want to scream. Then my mind goes on mini vaca and I just eat Little Debbie cakes and swill coffee. Here lately, there's a 'doh' look in my eyes.

Egghead said...

Little mind is the key word here. The only thing I can remember contemplating is staring at the great swarm of gnats that flew in. I'm old.

Debbie said...

I wear a top over elastic waist pants and wouldn't wear anything else. Who am I kidding? This is never going away!

Traveling lunge? Is it that long speed walk you take to catch the plane?
