Random Monday

• The other day I noticed my daughter playing with my contact lens case while she was sitting on the potty.

And then I had to spend the rest of the day pouring bleach into my eyeballs.

• Speaking of disgusting bathroom stories (I KNOW! It’s your lucky day!), I made Big clean the toilet again. I taunted him not to pick his nose during the process.

He didn’t think it was funny, but I didn’t really care. I was amused.

• So the New York Public School System is going to start handing out the Morning After Pill to kids as young as 14. Without parental consent.

I don’t know what is going on in this country. I really don’t. This story makes me want to cry.

• In other Good Government Ideas news, California is now going to allow self-driving cars. So that will probably be fine.

• Japanese Beauty Trend: Bagel Forehead. Click at your own risk. You will never be able to unsee that. What I want to know is how stretched out your forehead skin gets doing this. Like, will you need a forehead-tuck when you grow up and come to your senses? Why is this cool? I don’t get it. Do they put a big rhinestone in there or something?

I will send One Crisp American Dollar to anyone who does this and sends me a picture.

• Happy Monday, y’all! Link up your own randomness below!

    I’ve heard of potty mouth, but not potty eyeballs… before this anyway…

    The bagel thing is on the news EVERYWHERE and is it just me? I keep thinking that some weirdo is going to think of “penis forehead” and then what will you tell the kids when they see THAT at Wal-Mart?

    All that other stuff you wrote is erased by the image of bagels on foreheads. I couldn’t help myself – I clicked.

    EEWWWWWWWW on the potty-contacts scenario.

    I have mixed feelings about the morning-after-pill thing. On the one hand, I’m horrified that kids that age might require it; on the other hand, if they do, it’s a less heartbreaking decision than they might have to make a month or nine months down the road. I think the whole thing is awful but I don’t honestly know what’s worse.

    I agree with Melanie, and Eddie. Somehow this is all a little too concerning for me. I’m not sure what to say.

    (Except that we’ve had so much fun home-schooling this week that I haven’t even checked your blog in two days! No crying babies in the morning means I can read stories to H instead of reading blogs and facebook to settle my nerves while I settle babies!)

    Oh my gosh, I totally didn’t get April’s reference until you said that, Robin!

    Woefully lacking in pop-culture knowledge, that’s me.

    Contact lenses story is so funny. I am sorry for your Clorox bleaching but still SO FUNNY! The morning after pill leaves me speechless. I am so said that is something that is NEEDED by 14 year olds. One more reason I am so thankful to homeschool. My boss just got finished working on a film at the Google headquarters and he saw those cars and sent me a link. I dunno..a little freaky to me. Love your random Monday’s Deb. About to click the bagel link…I can’t help myself.
