Random Monday

• The other day Jim and I saw a commercial about video chatting, and it finally occurred to us that we should do that the next time he has to go out of town.

I know. We are on the cutting edge over here, people. It’s inspiring, isn’t it?

ANYway, I said why limit video chatting to when he’s out of town? We should set it up so that instead of sending email updates to him during the day like I do now, I could just pop up on the screen and tell him stuff. Like, for example, if the toilet needs plunging. Or there is an annoying person at the door. Or if he needs to go to Starbucks and get me a mocha.

I think it’s a brilliant idea. Jim does not.


This post at Smockity Frocks, which is pretty much exactly what I think about homeschooling, but better said.

• We were thinking of getting take-out last Friday, and I saw that the Mexican place had something called a “Wet Burrito.”

I cannot imagine anything less appealing-sounding than a “wet burrito.” Gross.

I eventually determined that it’s a burrito covered in some kind of red sauce. Not red chile, which would be acceptable, and certainly not green chile, which would be preferable but is apparently unheard of once you leave the Southwest United States; but some vaguely described red sauce. Why couldn’t they call it a smothered burrito? Covered burrito? Sauced burrito? Or even just burrito?

But no. It’s wet. And probably soggy. Yum.

• Michigan is pretty.

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

    Know what that “video chatting” sounds like? The Jetsons. We are living like the freaking JETSONS now, people.

    I am still waiting for my video call with you 🙂 Fraidy-cat.

    Now I will never be able to look at a burrito the same, thanks to you. Gross.

    This time in the Midwest is absolutely gorgeous. We have to enjoy it in MN because it will be over in a flash.

    I can’t imagine why hubby didn’t want to go for your daily chat session updates.

    Love the picture! That just screams fall. Are you talking about that commercial with the dad and daughter? That commercial makes me all weepy.

    Michigan is pretty, and I just noticed that your blog thinks I’m pretty, too! So I decided to leave a comment. This blog makes me happy. 🙂

    e-mails are much better if he needs to add it to his todo list, or skim quickly over the tale of the annoying person (not you; the guy at the door, of course).

    I’ve heard of a wet Italian Beef sandwich which sounds a lot less gross to me for some reason. Probably because it is delicious.

    I really like that homeschooling post. It has just the right amount of snark for the informative and well reasoned answers it provides.

    Ok, I think I hit every point. My job is done for today. See you next week!

    Michigan – hmmm…you’re less than a day’s drive from here now. I’m just saying…..

    “Wet burrito” sounds like a really poorly thought out euphimism. No way would I try one.
