Friday Fragments!

I have a lot of random thoughts that would make for great posts if only they had more substance. So here are random thoughts that I have had that just weren't enough for an entire post. And I am not alone! These gals are doin' it too!Mommy's Idea
  • One of my favorite bloggers EVER commented on my post yesterday! Woohoo! I was so excited that I yelled, "OMGCHERYLCOMMENTEDONMYBLOG!!!" and my husband looked at me like I had 2 heads. He doesn't get the whole blog thing. 

  • It is allegedly freezing in Florida, because it got down to 40 degrees. I live in Colorado where yesterday the high was 18 and it was -16 two nights ago. I just returned from a trip to Minnesota where the high the entire week we were there was 23, and it was the day we left. It was -15 every morning. So, residents if Florida, shove it. Buy a coat and some mittens and call yourself warm. Meanwhile my children and I will suit up in full ski gear to go to the grocery store.

  • Alabama won the BCS Bowl! The only reason I care about this because I hate the Longhorns. I repeat: I HATE THE LONGHORNS! and I have no real reasons to back that up. I just hate them.
  • Speaking of the Longhorns sucking ass losing the BCS, nobody will shut up about Colt McCoy and his laziness fear injury in the 1st quarter of the game. Who cares? The game is over. They lost. Get over it. Here is a list of things I care more about than Crybaby McCoy:
1. The new Saturn Vue
2. Viggo Mortensen
3. The latest issue of CatFancy Magazine
4. sardines
5. stamps
The list could go on, and on and on, but I think you get the picture.
  • I found out yesterday that the Venti Signature Hot Chocolate from Starbucks that I have been enjoying on a regular basis because of the freezing cold has a mere 600 calories in it. 600 CALORIES!!! When I think about the 6 or so baby lbs that I haven't lost yet, I have to say, DUH YOU FREAKIN' MORON! At least I know what I have to cut out now. Or at least cut back on. 
  • Yesterday, to bring awareness to breast cancer, a message went around to the ladies of Facebook asking them to put the color of their bra, and nothing else, as their status. As the granddaughter of a breast cancer survivor and avid supporter of early detection, I happily changed my status to "nude". And I watched as every girl I sent the message along to changed her status as well. I love how many women responded! I love even more the confused responses and ??? from all of the gentlemen wondering what the hell was going on :)
  • I was looking at my Facebook profile page just now and it shows 6 of my 200-something friends on the side. All of the ones it was showing were exes of some sort. Awkward. Not really in the mood to relive the past today, but oh well.

yeah for FB bra's I did yesterday too! (chocolate brown~ only cause i didnt have one on). It was fun to watch the men confused at the posts!

Sad about the hot chocolate too. Better for you to order it w/skim milk and no whipped cream. But who wants that?

And I hate the Patriots like you hate the Longhorns. 'Cept I have plenty of reasons.

There's a new Saturn Vue? I thought they canceled that line, but so glad to hear that they didn't!! :)

Haha... I got several of those bra emails yesterday on facebook and was amazed at how quickly that spread! Unfortunately, the guys that are in my circles all knew what was going on and made a few rude comments, so that kind of ruined the fun (and pointed out to me who would soon be deleted from my 'friends' list.

600 calories?! Holy crap!

It's been hovering right around freezing here and I've been feeling mighty sorry for myself. I don't think I'd care so much if I went places in the car (or never left the house), but walking and riding a bike places makes that CRAZYBADCOLD!

I get excited when famous (to me) people comment on my blog too. What is it with husbands?! They just don't grasp the important things in life *L*
