Random Tuesday Thoughts. I like you, I really do, but why are you making so much work for me?

randomtuesday

It’s Tuesday, which means it’s time to get your random on!

There’s nothing I love more than stumbling upon a new blog, either on my own or with a friend of a friend of a friend’s recommendation.  I love sitting and reading through months worth of old posts.  Getting to know the back stories and little details that make a blog great.  And of course, once I decide that YES indeed, I do want to read more in the future, I am damn sure going to subscribe to the RSS feed.  But wait, where is it? Please, for the love of all that is bloggy, stop hiding the subscribe button! There is no way I can be counted on to remember to come back and read without adding you to my reader, I’m just not that with it.  So, that’s all on that.

I keep a notepad in my purse to jot down ideas I think would make great blog posts, for an impromptu grocery trip, things I need to do when I get home.  You get the idea.  This usually works really well, I have it within reach at all times, and rarely do thoughts fall out of my brain to simply be lost.  The problem with this method is that it requires having a pen handy.  Something I actually don’t tend to have.  Somehow I’ve got to make the pen stay near the notepad, but so far, I have failed at that.

I absolutely CANNOT stand the phrase “it is what it is.”  I mean, OBVIOUSLY that’s the case.  The phrase is so over used by just about everyone I know, and I just want to smack the words out of them.  I don’t, because I’m nonviolent and all.  But seriously people, it’s annoying.  Do me a favor, come up with something else, something that in six months is going to be just as overused. 

I tend to listen to the radio when I’m driving to and fro.  I have a horrible habit of listening to 3/4 of a song thinking, “I can’t stand this song.”  Yes, it takes me that long to actually change the station. And it’s not even that hard, the controls are on my steering wheel.  I guess it just takes that long for my brain to process the fact that I actually have the option of changing the station.  I’m awesome like that.

Now head on over to The Un Mom for more random!  GO!

I am guilty of saying it is what it is like alllll the time... but I also put a twist on it for complainers. I always tell people, "When you're done whining about whatever it is, it still it what it was." :) So, see. I make the world a brighter place by curbing one grouch at a time LOL

Oh, and my RSS subscription icon is TOTALLY find-able :)

Fun Post! Have a fun day :) ~Amy

@Kat. Ok, when you phrase it like that, it is much less annoying, and actually pretty comical. And I know your RSS button is easy to find, in fact, I love how prominent they are! Maybe I'm just lazy, but a bright button works for me!

Steph said...

@Amy. Thank you :) Thanks for stopping by.

I use that's just how it is for my six year old when explaining something that can't or won't be changed. It works better than the it is thing. Happy Tuesday.

Kat @ For the Love of Chaos said...

@Steph, I don't like having to search for ways to connect either; they SHOULD be quite visible :) I agree. Oh, and that was supposed to say "It still IS what it was." lol Leave it to me to completely screw up my OWN phrase. Phooey.

Sarah V. said...

I hate the phrase "It is what it is," too! What does that even mean, really?

givingherallshesgot said...

Agreed!!! I haaaate searching for RSS feed buttons. I really hate when people using Blogger just do their Google follow thing and there IS no RSS. I'm sorry, I don't use that. And the same, if you're not in my reader, I'm not following you. I'm just not. So please put up your RSS link and make it visible!

Steph said...

@VandJ I think that's better than, "because I said so" lol.

Steph said...

@ Sara, it means that it is what it is. Silly :) I can hardly stand myself for typing that out.

Steph said...

@givingherallshesgot Yes! Exactly! I don't hate the Google connect, I have it on my site (I think, lol) but I don't like it personally in my reader. I like things organized and neat and it doesn't allow for that.

I need options people! And manually entering it into my reader is obviously too much work for me.

I don't say 'It is what it is' but then again I'm still saying 'awesome possum', 'cool beans', and 'gag me with a rutabaga'. Yes, I do need someone to usher me into the New Millenium before I die of old age.

I agree on the lack of organization with GFC. Thanks for coming by my wordless wednesday. :)

I keep my thoughts in my cell because I'll lose the notepad. I also ask you to keep them for me :)
