Random Monday

In CategoryRandom Monday


• I’ve been catching up on Us Weekly now that we are in a house like normal humans. Apparently some guy called Lil Wayne got his forehead tattooed. The tattoo says “baked.”

If I got a tattoo, I’d totally get it on my face. Just put it out there where everyone can see it. If you get a good idea like tattooing “baked” on your person, you don’t wanna hide your light under a bushel, you know what I’m saying?

• Also from Us Magazine, Christina Applegate announced her two year old is incredibly talented, having singing, tap-dancing, and ballet as strings to her bow. SHE IS TWO YEARS OLD. Ballet? Really? Okay, sure.

• The other day on Twitter, Connie at The Young and the Relentless made some comment about switching from Google Reader and I was all like What for? and then I saw the news that Google is retiring the reader! What are we supposed to do now? Boo. I don’t like it. If you don’t use Google Reader, what do you use? What is everyone considering switching to?

• I also saw this news about Ukranian Killer Dolphins on the Loose. Which, I mean. What can you say about that? I guess they’re equipped with pistols and knives? True or not, that’s one awesome story.

• One morning, several years ago, right after I cut my hair short, my kids were cuddling with me in bed and Little gave a little gasp and goes “mommy, you have something white in your hair!” and then they both started picking through my hair looking for the offending gray like monkeys looking for fleas. The gasps of horror were hilarious. Apparently instead of cutting off all the gray, I just made it more noticeable. *sigh* And then when I explained that when you get to be an old lady, your hair turns gray, Big said, “Oh. What color will you get when it’s done being gray?”

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

    Although not as common as it used to be, the NZ Maori to this day still tattoo their faces with patterns though (which all have meanings) not words. “Since the Maori consider the head to be the most sacred part of the body, the most popular kind of Maori tattoo was the facial tattoo, which was composed of curved shapes and spiral patterns. It often covered the whole of the face, and was a symbol of rank, social status power, and prestige.” Not really my cup of tea either but I have gotten used to seeing them now.

    I see a breakdown or burn out for Ms Applegates daughter in the future, so sad! Maybe she could have a tattoo put across her daughters head with the words “incredibly talented”.

    UM, am I allowed to point out that you posted Random Monday on a Sunday? Is that allowed? You are messing with my world! It’s Sunday right? or have I lost track of my days again? (ugh not again) lol

    I know, but see, if I wait till Monday to post, I forget until like, 11 am and then I feel like I am letting down the vast, vast, LEGION, practically, amount of people who want to participate, but then don’t because they are more organized than me and are like “too late, sucka” but REALLY it’s because I would like more participants and I thought if I posted on Sunday, it would remind people who are planning their blogging week to join in.

    It’s all very complicated and stuff. Obviously.

    Oh hilarious!! I didn’t know who this little Wayne person was and D and I clicked through. D goes, “That doesn’t look like someone I would want to date.”

    Ba ha ha ha!!

    I first had to switch to Firefox from IE10 so that I could start using Feedly. Such a pain in the neck and all so that I could read incredible blogs like yours. You better continue to make it worth my time and effort :).

    I’ve been using Feedly for several days now and I really like it!

    I love US WEEKLY! Such an informative magazine.

    I am definitely skeptical about a 2 year old even comprehending ballet. My daughter did her entire ballet recital at 4 with a finger up each nostril.

    Just found this blog. I must’ve missed the US Weekly article about Lil Wayne. I agree that I would NOT put “baked” on my head. Maybe like “On a diet..” or something effective that could help me in my daily life (i.w people in my office not trying to feed me candy) ..
    I’m a new blogger, so this was fun to read!
