These are random musings of my life journey, the people, animals, places, and events which have woven, and continue to weave, a tapestry that is me. We all know there is no real destination, only the ongoing experiences which blend together, creating the trail. Each step gives a glimpse of what is to come, without allowing me to see the end result. It is exciting. I have a home base that is mine, that gives me a place to rest. This is it. This is where my heart is, no matter where I journey...................

Things we all think about...

A space filler that came in email and made me laugh. Hope it does you, too!

Things we all think about...

* MapQuest really needs to start their directions on #5. Pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

* Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

* I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

* The letters T and G are very close to each other on a keyboard. This recently became all too apparent to me and consequently I will never be ending a work email with the phrase "Regards" again.

* There is a great need for sarcasm font.

* I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

* I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

* Was learning cursive really necessary?

* Whenever someone says "I'm not book smart, but I'm street smart", all I hear is "I'm not real smart, but I'm imaginary smart".

* How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear what they said?

* I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars teams up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers!

* Bad decisions make good stories

* Why is it that during an ice-breaker, when the whole room has to go around and say their name and where they are from, I get so incredibly nervous? Like I know my name, I know where I'm from; this shouldn't be a problem....(guilty of making people do this! Sorry!!)

* You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you've made up your mind that you just aren't doing anything productive for the rest of the day.

* Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after DVDs? I don't want to have to restart my collection.

* I hate when I just miss a call by the last ring (Hello? Hello? Dammit!), but when I immediately call back, it rings nine times and goes to voicemail. What'd you do after I didn't answer? Drop the phone and run away?

* I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

* I like all of the music in my iTunes, except when it's on shuffle, then I like about one in every fifteen songs in my iTunes.

* As a driver I hate pedestrians, and as a pedestrian I hate drivers, but no matter what the mode of transportation, I always hate cyclists.

* Sometimes I'll look down at my watch 3 consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

* I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

* I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.



  1. Aren't they?? I saw myself in too many of them!

  2. This was a great email and I am glad you put it in a post. I couldn't agree with you more about mapquest. My other favorite is the thing with the grocery bags. I don't know how many times I have spent time arranging the bags on each of my fingers just to make sure that I don't have to make a second trip. Funny thing would have been quicker to just make two trips.

  3. Ummmm I laughed so hard Mike thought I was having a fit. I see a lot of myself in some of these too. Thank you for the good laugh

  4. That made my day....and they all applied to me. What do you think that says about me????

  5. Caroline, the grocery bags got me, too! Just the other day I was thinking that I could have made the second trip easier and with far less pain on the fingers!

    Bobbie, you're welcome! It is my pleasure to lighten someone's day!

    MJ, I think it says "Welcome to the human race!" Glad you enjoyed it!

  6. * I hate leaving my house confident and looking good and then not seeing anyone of importance the entire day. What a waste.

    and the next line would be, why is it when i am wearing sweats and no make up i meet my boss or the cute guy from sales in the grocery store???!!!

    anyway, great post! i was amused and i learned something new. didn't know the t and the g were so close together.


  7. (M)ry, your addition to the list is perfect! And, as for the T and G ... for me it the T & Y. Sometimes I say"yhay" or "yhat" instead of "that." duh.


If you have something to say about it, just stick out your thumb, and I'll slow down so you can hop aboard! But hang on, 'cause I'm movin' on down the road!!! No time to waste!!!
