Really Blogger? REALLY?? Oh, And It’s Possible I Have an Unhealthy Obsession With Socks.

randomtuesday

Let’s just get this random started, I have a lot of pent up energy.

First off, Blogger hates me.  I know it’s personal, and I will not put up with it anymore!  First Blogger ate my comments, so I added a widget.  Then Blogger ate my widget, so I deleted it and went back to the standard craptastic blogger comment form.  But NOOO!  Blogger couldn’t be satisfied with that.  Again my comments were being eaten, so I had to reconfigure it and now I get a few comments now and then.  But I KNOW blogger is still eating them.  The latest move against me is that blogger will randomly change my font, so don’t be surprised if there are three or four different fonts as you’re reading.  I’ve got my eye on you, Blogger.  Your time here is short, don’t mess with me!

It’s spring here, in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, so of course that means rain for days.  I’m tired of the rain, tired of the drizzle and the showers.  I’m tired of the wind and feeling as though my car will be blown off the road at any minute.  There is very little about the rain that I will miss. I will miss listening to the rain as I fall asleep, I’ll miss sharing that with Tysen.  We were at a new year’s eve party and he was sleepy so we sat and listened to the rain.  He still asks if we can snuggle and listen to the rain.  That I will miss. 

I recently discovered the joy of knee socks.  I advise everyone to go out and buy several dozen pairs, because they are freaking amazing!  Now, I'm not talking trouser socks, or anything dignified.  Stripes, plaid, stars, hearts, argyles or anything dorky will do.  I don’t know how to describe the level of comfort, so you will just have to trust me.  Go to Target, buy them, wear them, love them. Go!

You know what I don’t understand?  Well, a lot of things, but this in particular.  Why do people put those little family decals on their car, with the name of each child underneath the little stick figures?  Seriously, could you be any more obvious that you want your child to be abducted?  Maybe I’m just incredibly paranoid, maybe I’m giving it more thought than it requires.  Or maybe some parents aren’t giving it enough.

Phew, I feel better now.  I’m done being random, but there is more to be found if you head on over to The Un Mom.  So go visit, get your random on then go to Target and buy some knee socks!

I hope blogger doesn't eat my comment Steph!

You are so witty and funny and I totally don't understand why you would put that on your car??? I have never seen that before.

It must only be something us crazy Americans do. :)

If it means anything, stupid Maryland drivers do the same thing. Drives. Me. Crazy.

And Blogger. Ugh. Don't get me started.

Steph said...

I'm sure there are places where drivers wouldn't drive me crazy. Unfortunately I think they are all places that don't have roads....like the south pole.

You know, Wordpress is nice! ;-)

I agree, I hate those decals! What is the freaking point? Plus whittling down every kid to one hobby? Blah! You're the first other person I've heard who dislikes them, my hubby thinks they're mildly cool/harmless *rolls eyes*

Also, knee socks are very comfy on a cold day :-)

i blew off knee socks in Catholic school when they kicked me out. The funny thing is, I'm not joking.

Steph said...

Oh, those decals are soooo not cool, and harmless? I don't think so! :)

Julie, of course they kicked you out of Catholic school.

Blogger is a pain, no doubt. I'm still toying with going to Wordpress...but not sure if I want to endure the stress since I just redid my blog...

I love knee socks. Too bad they always get hidden in my boots :)

Steph said...

I'm moving to wordpress, it'll just take time. I'm sure it will be worth it at least I hope so.
