Crazy Random Happenstance

Billy: So good... Hey, this is weird. I ordered one frozen yogurt and they gave me two. You don't happen to like frozen yogurt, do you?
Penny: I love it!
Billy: You're kidding? What a crazy random happenstance!

It's Friday.

It's been awhile since I've done an "Everything and Nothing You Ever Needed to Know About Me" blog and it's Friday, so I figured it would be kind of fun to do another one. Fun for me because this is currently keeping my eyes open in the middle of the day and fun for you because you get to see that I am kind of a weirdo.

- I have to wear slippers or flip flops in my house all the time. The dogs always get water everywhere when they drink from their water dish and I hate (HATE) that feeling of my feet being wet. Ack.

- I do not think Channing Tatum is handsome. I know that I am in the minority with this one but I think he looks like a gorilla. He does nothing for me.

- I am addicted to Avocados. I think I could eat them with everything, all the time. I really, really, really love them.

- I have yet to try anything from Sonic. Yeah, I know that restaurant has been in Westland for a long time now and I was one of those people that always wished we had a Sonic nearby before it moved here but I just always forget that it's over there.

- I keep a pad of paper and pen in my bag/purse at all times, so I can write down good ideas and things to discuss and/or blog about.

- I'm the youngest person in my department at work.

- I have never seen Avatar  (much to the irritation of my Dad) and have no desire to do so.

- Whenever I think something (or someone) is boring, I always hear Dudley Dursley's "He's boorring" in my head, from Harry Potter and The Sorcerer's Stone:

- Whenever I think something is gross, I immediately think of Jennifer Garner in 13 Going On 30:

- Whenever I pin something on Pinterest and the little "Success!" box pops up, I read it as the voice of Kristen Wiig's Target Lady.

- I want to buy all of the Lord of The Rings Lego sets. Not for Charley. For me. I stare at them longingly whenever we go to the store. I could have a room full of Harry Potter and LOTR Legos on display at all times. HOW MUCH FUN WOULD THAT BE!?

- I recently had to switch over to Burt's Bees peppermint chapstick (GASP!). I know. I can't find singles of my Spearmint Chapstick at any of the stores I normally go to. I have one spearmint one left. That's it.

- I'm sick of Train and maroon 5. I feel like those are the only two bands ever played on the radio anymore.

- I don't like blueberries, raspberries or pineapple. (This fact drives Dawn crazy! It makes no sense to her.) I also hate orange juice but can eat an orange.

- I really, really, really love the Howie Day album, Stop All The World Now. It's 9 years old now and that's crazy to me. I always forget how much I love it.

- My Mom is 3 years Breast Cancer free this week. She's the strongest woman I know and I am so proud of her.

- I got my first flat tire this morning. The AAA guy thought I was a dumb girl, I could tell.

- I bought some Mangos for the first time ever while grocery shopping last night. I have no idea how to cut them.

- Dawn and I became soulmates through our mutual love of Twilight.

- I am contemplating re-reading the Harry Potter series for the 3rd time.

- Carrie and I used to sell Beanie Babies and Pokemon merchandise at a kiosk in the middle of Westland Mall. We used to make each other laugh all the live long day, while swinging our keys.

- My sister-in-law, Rhonda was my boss at my first job, The Pretzel Peddler. We've known each other for almost 20 years. (A fact that I JUST now realized and am kind of blown away by).

- I have no plans this weekend. I'm really happy about that.

A few miscellaneous tidbits:

- I really loved The Avengers. Joss Whedon did a wonderful job. I can't wait to see it again.

- The new Kris Allen album is so good. I could listen to it all day long. I LOVE IT.

- The newest Sookie book ( Deadlocked)  is much better than the last one. There is one book left in the series and I honestly don't care who she ends up with. It should be interesting.

- Season 5 of True Blood starts on Sunday. YES.

- The Hunger Games comes out on BluRay/DVD in August.

- I'm currently reading the Fifty Shades of Grey series. You can expect a blog about it soon.

- AMC is going to be showing a Walking Dead season 3 preview, the weekend of July 7th and 8th. They will be showing the first 2 seasons in their entirety, with each episode being introduced by Chris Hardwick (who will be on the set of season 3). They will also be showing interviews with the cast and behind the scenes footage throughout the weekend. There will be a special "Talking Dead" episode at 9pm on the 8th. I think that's pretty cool.  

- Charley tried to talk Jeff and I into purchasing this for him:

Yeah, no way in the world that's happening. This commercial makes me want to vomit. 


  1. That is so gross!!!!

    I laughed out loud to the target lady thing. I walk around my house and use that voice all the time. Now I don't feel so bad.

    I'll get you some chapstick and bring it with me when I come back to town. The walgreens here as loads of it.

    1. I will be delighted if you are able to get me some chapstick.


  2. Oh and the above comment was from me, your lybf.

  3. I agree with the channing tatum thing...eeww! I also do not like orange juice:)-Suzy

    1. It's nice to know that I'm not the only one! (on both accounts!)

  4. Mangos have a huge, enormous pit. The best way to cut it is lengthwise and form a square in the center. Then you can work your way around it. LOL.

    I can't wait for the 50 Shades blog.

    Congrats to your mom! I am on the committee now for the Relay for Life. Your mom should come at the beginning of the event next year and do a survivor lap with the other survivors! It's totally awesome!

    Channing Tatum has a nice torso. But he is not my fav. At all.

    1. Thanks, Kat! I just told Dawn that I should videotape myself trying to cut it up. Hopefully I don't injure myself :)

      Thanks for the Relay for Life info! I'll let her know.

  5. Channing Tatum has a large neck because its full of muscles...or so I was told.

    Charley wants that squishy stuff because he wants to know what its like to be a booger.

    Hooray for Mrs. Face on being cancer-free for 3 years! That's so wonderful!

    Can I help you put together all of your Harry Potter and LOTR lego sets when you get them? I love them.

    1. Haha, neck muscles.

      He totally wants to be a booger! That's it!

      Duh. Of course you can help me put them together. I assume that this will happen when we become Ladies of Leisure and are able to sit around all day, drinking coffee and building Legos. It will be grand.

  6. I don't like orange juice either.. but I do love Sunny Delight. I was excited for Sonic too but when I had it, it was nothing special. Carrie saw a Slice of the 80's car the other day and was upset that it wasn't a Delorean. Sometimes gorillas are hot.

    1. They were having classic 80's cars deliver pizza a few weeks ago, I believe. Kit from Knight Rider, the Dukes of Hazzard car etc... I think. I might be making that up.

      REAL gorillas are cute. Human boys that look like gorillas are NOT cute. I also think his facial features are too small for his big head.

    2. Well, you can always put a bag on his head ala Christian Troy. ;)

    3. No you are not making that up. We will be having Kit from Knight Rider, the Dukes of Hazzard car AND the Ghostbusters car delivering for us one day in July!!

    4. Oh good! I'm not a liar then :)

  7. There are 25,000 of these things on "The Internets", I still can't do it:

    1. Well that was helpful! I'll let you know how successful I am in my first mango cutting attempt.

      Also, how much does that dude love mangos?? A LOT.

  8. Channing Tatum disgusts me. So does that Rpatz guy everyone loves. I just don't see it i guess. Kris Allen is so much better looking :)
    Pineapple is disgusting as well. I try to avoid even touching it at work putting them on pizzas. The smell makes me want to vomit!
    Sonic is no where near as good as people made it out to be. Except for their drinks. They are delicious.
    And also, you forgot to do a shout out to your favorite sister/sibling!! :)

    1. Robert Pattinson is handsome, Nat! But I know you you've never liked him :)

      Sorry... I LOVE MY SISTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  9. Well I can add lots of comments here but I would go on and on and on! Another entertaining blog ♥

    Fun Memories ♥

    Love you,
