random things cos that's how i'm rolling today.
***remember that yummy lasagna i made last weekend? the one the kids didn't eat? (yeah, they didn't eat the homemade chicken noodle soup the hubs made yesterday either) well, i cleaned out the fridge yesterday and tossed the lasagna (i know i know, i probably could have frozen it huh?). so the garbage can is sitting in the middle of the kitchen. i walked out of the kitchen for like half a second. came back and the lasagna was not in the trash but leah (the big black lab) was shaking her tail quite happily. omg! and about a hour later? she horked it all up right in front of the back door. seriously, that pile was the size of a pizza. i almost horked myself cleaning it up. (jeez, i hope nobody is eating while reading this).
***i seriously just might do the majority of my holiday shopping online.
***twice i have responded to old navy's ads and gone to the store only to be incredibly disappointed because they do not have what they said they did or at least they don't have it in the kids' size. however, they do have them online.
***i say this every year but every year it bears repeating (cos it's a pet peeve and pisses me the hell off!)penguins have absolutely NOTHING to do with christmas. they don't live at the north pole. they don't reside near polar bears. they aren't christmasy in any way, shape or form. i heart penguins and hate seeing them belitted in stupid christmas hats and carrying candy canes and frolicking with polar bears. it's just wrong. ahem, ok, go back to what you were doing.
***i heard on the radio this morning that wv has something else to be proud of. (not). i'm wv born and semi-bred (go ahead, make the jokes, i've heard them all) and i know the bad hillbilly rap the state gets. i get it. i really do. today the cdc announced the healthiest cities. some place in vermont (the place the hubs always says we're going) is the healthiest and huntington, wv (home to my alma mater, marshall university) is the unhealthiest city in the u.s. whoot whoot. (this is me, hanging my head).
***holy shit--they just broke a news story that we MIGHT get snow FLURRIES here tomorrow. crap. that means 1)school will be closed and 2) there will be no bread or milk in the stores after 5pm today. i kid you not. i've lived in north carolina longer than i've ever lived anywhere else (and still don't consider myself a north carolinian) but damn these people freak the hell out over some white stuff.
