Yep, Friday Fragments time once again. If you don’t know what to do, Mrs.4444 over at Half Past Kissin’ Time will be more than happy to explain.
***One of the forty-bazillion reasons I love Sam is because he says things like this: “Hm. I just saw a soda dispenser on that person’s front porch.” NOT “pop machine,” but soda dispenser. How can you not love a kid who speaks like that? It baffles the mind.
***This is how neurotic I really am: I bought a hair dryer off of Ebay about two weeks ago, and with one thing and another it just got here yesterday (and yes, I paid, I usually pay within 32 seconds of having won or purchased something). So time came to leave feedback, and I gave her a neutral rating-and was nervous about leaving a less than positive rating. Because, you know, it might make her mad, and she will retaliate by leaving me a less-than-positive rating, and-well. I know, I know, I am nuts.
***At youth group this week, the girls were taught how to make dough for a variety of things. I could be a little annoyed that they are teaching the girls only how to be good little housewives, cooking and such, but I was really quite glad; it meant I didn’t have to make pizza dough last night.
***I was right about the whole Ebay thing; I had a really, really nasty response to my neutral rating. So now I am all worked up about the fact that someone I don’t even know and from whom I won’t buy again is mad at me. Yeah-a little neurosis with a side of paranoia, anyone?
***Everyone at my house is finally if not healthy then at least functioning and back at school. Whew; talk about a relief!
***My current obsession is those little packages Keebler peanut butter and cheese crackers, in case anyone is interested. The only real problem is that I could eat an entire 8-pack in a day if I let myself. I buy one about every two weeks to bring for snacks at work, and they are gone the first week. I have no sense of moderation.
***Our backyard neighbor did not last long; the house has been dark and empty for the last week. This may possibly have something to do with the fact that she got arrested on Sunday for disturbing the peace, trespassing, vandalism, and domestic battery, with a little soupcon of resisting arrest to spice it up a little bit. I am not sure where the kids are, and hope they are okay. I DO know that one of them is and has been living with her not-quite-ex-husband, and for that I am grateful.
***My sister turned 40 yesterday; I look at her (or rather think of her, as I don’t see her all that often) and think, “well now, THAT’S just not possible!” In my mind, we are all still quite young and unbearably lovely.
***I went to my friend J.’s office last night to pick up yet more books she had set aside for me, and had to laugh. I roll my eyes a little about Steve’s compulsion to acquire yet one more cast iron pan/skillet/Dutch Oven, yet every time he comes home with one more pan, I come home with another stack of books. I guess it evens out.
There you have it, a small glimpse of the inner workings of my convoluted mind; aren’t you glad you stopped by? Now go check out some other Fragmenters over at Half Past Kissin’ Time!
