you know that feeling when you know you should go to bed because its really late but you don’t want to because your mind is whirling and you can’t shut your brain off, plus you’re not really sleepy and are just in that dreamy state of mind where random bizarre thoughts pop into your head and you are really considering driving to the airport and … Continue reading

go away crazy world

What is up? Mass craziness, that’s what. Lets see…Fisher is out, Egypt has completely lost its mind and I can’t get past Level 12 of Angry Birds. Some of my friends are going through tough times and I feel helpless. This week at work has been the most maddening yet and my potential new career seems to be held up in some sort of limbo-land. To combat the … Continue reading go away crazy world

the flood

so, nashville, i love you. the last several days have been madness as you all know by now. no damage at our house. but so many others…there are just no words. besides the greater heartbreak of the stories of loss and death and unbelievable survival, how surreal was it to see nashville and it’s landmarks consumed by floodwaters? and it’s not just nashville. we can’t … Continue reading the flood

aaaaaand here we are

Hi. I’m in one of those “I feel like talking/typing but I have nothing of value to say but am going to post anyway” kind of moods. Which usually ends up to be long rambling paragraphs about baby poop or the dream I had last night. But you don’t mind or else you wouldn’t be here reading. Or maybe you’ve already clicked off and are … Continue reading aaaaaand here we are

well here we are but where is that?

Life is messed up. Generally speaking. Things don’t make sense, get all crazy, aren’t logical and sure as hell aren’t black and white. Sometimes I think I will never figure things out. Never figure out what I’m supposed to be doing here, what I want to do here. I envy those people who know what they want and just go do it without overthinking things. Or … Continue reading well here we are but where is that?

in which i shake my fist at the universe…

…and she laughs in my face, and then spits snow in it. Today was just bizarre. Here was my plan…take kiddo to day care, come home, make quick grocery run, get ready and drive back to town for an interview, interview, knock their socks off and get an offer on the spot, do jubilant cartwheels down the hall and all the way to my car, pick up kiddo at … Continue reading in which i shake my fist at the universe…

template stuff & a sam pic

I’m thinking of changing my template again. I’m very partial to the current one but…you guessed it…I’m bored, need a change…oh well, in the meantime, here’s a picture of Sam being goofy. In this particular instance she would get into this position, then turn her head to look at me and say “poop”, then resume position…I have no idea either…I think she just likes to … Continue reading template stuff & a sam pic

two very important things

1) I hate cheesy ringtones. To be more specific, I hate ringtones in general. This quirk of mine came to mind because some random person just walked in my office and his phone lets out an obnoxious and somehow techy-pervy “BOW-CHICA-BOW-BOW”…I mean, really? And there’s nothing like doing your business in the ladies room when the chick’s phone in the stall next to you sings out “I WILL SURVIVE, … Continue reading two very important things

this happened to me today & i was super bummed

know what i hate? when oatmeal raisin cookies fool me and i think they’re chocolate chip cookies and i buy them looking forward to a yummy snack only to discover the awful truth when i bite into a perfectly good grape that has been shriveled up and is all wrinkly and chewy and sticks in my teeth. that sucks. just had to get that out. in other … Continue reading this happened to me today & i was super bummed

padoodiddyloo

don’t go all nerdy on me or nuthin’ and be googling “padoodiddyloo”. i just made it up. i saw this quote today and snickered (people do not use the word “snicker” nearly enough do they? dang i need some chocolate now…) because it reminded me of myself…Henry S. Haskins said…”The time to stop talking is when the other person nods his head affirmatively but says nothing.” … Continue reading padoodiddyloo

just me…talking about stuff

First and most importantly, the earthquake in Haiti…horrible, tragic, unimaginable…things like this put my silly whining and craziness into severe perspective. You can donate at several places but two of my favs are the American Red Cross and Doctors Without Borders. Speaking of  things these tragedies put into perspective, I keep hearing all these rumblings about some guy named Lane Kiffin leaving TN and heading … Continue reading just me…talking about stuff

inky dinky rinky

…because that rhymes and all… i’m tired today. and solemnly swear to go to bed early tonight. like by 9pm. its not like i stay up late doing anything productive either. i’m watching house hunters or goofing online, reading, writing, blahditty blahditty blahditty. its cold out y’all. like worse than cold. more like frigid. like you didn’t know this already right. i got nuthin today, can … Continue reading inky dinky rinky

what i would’ve given to have seen this…

Rumor on the streets is that my mother (Maw Finn, you might know her, she comments here sometimes) performed some kick-butt karaoke this morning at a middle school talent show. Its official. I live in BizarroWorld. And that’s cool with me. Love you mom. You crazy lady. Go here to read about the show. Thanks ‘Coma. Continue reading what i would’ve given to have seen this…

ok

why doesn’t the name “wally” rhyme with “sally”? this occurred to me on the drive in this morning and will not go away from my brain. much like my question about why the last part of the word “arkansas” is not pronounced like the word “kansas”, or vice versa. these things bug me. and this is why i do not care for grammar. if whoever … Continue reading ok
