Yep, it’s Friday. You know what to do.
***My soapbox yesterday was brought about in part by the asshat at Hannah’s school and in part because I read this post over at a blog I was directed to called After Silence. It got me thinking about the fact that even though we are supposedly making great strides toward being free of such behavior, under the surface lies a very clear good old boy mentality that hasn’t changed a whole lot in the last 50 years. She said it a lot better than I did, though, so if you want to, head on over there and check it out.
***Owen crept into our room last night-which he often does-but this time he brought in with him all of his blankets and a book. Now, I love me some good reading, and have several books that I love so much I would like to sleep with them, so that makes me glad. However, sharp edges at 2:30 a.m. are not so fun, nor is a restless three year old hugging the source of said sharp edges. I finally ended up shuffling him off to his room while trying to convince him that books aren’t fun to sleep with; I don’t think he believed me, though, because I fell asleep on his bed and woke up to, you guessed it, a sharp edge in my face.
***That little thingy in Google Reader that allows people to share items? Is the devil. I click on one shared item, and then another, and pretty damn quick I have added three new blogs to my reader, because the writing kicks my ass. And then I wake up in the morning and I have 47 unread items and I feel slightly panicked and sometimes just close my eyes and delete delete delete…but then I feel like maybe I missed the best! post! ever! and have to go back in and read what I deleted. If you KNOW I read you but I haven’t commented, it is either because I have nothing useful to say or I am on overload. Yet I do it every single day; how sick am I?
***Our local grocery store (well, local meaning it is here, but it is a chain store but NOT the Big W) is having this really great sale on cheese. As in, blocks and bags for 99 cents each. 99 cents, folks. We will be eating cheese for weeks to come. Since a couple of the kids have problems down under from eating too much cheese, I also stocked up on some plum. It’s a win-win situation.
***I am wearing Sam’s socks today, and they fit. He is 10, mind you. I don’t think it is that his feet are so big, mine are just small. I noticed when I got to work, though, that they don’t match. They are both dingy gray white, but one has the gray toe and the other doesn’t. Think anyone else will notice?
***I am going to catch a fish this weekend even if it means I have to go out every morning and evening the entire three-day-weekend. I am a woman with a mission.
I can never think of a really good way to end these Friday Fragment posts. All of the randomness is just, well, so random that it is difficult for me to close. So begone, and check out the other Friday Fragmenters. And thanks to Mrs.4444 for this brainstorm!
