Random Monday

• The other day in the car, this horrible and stupid song came on the radio, and Jim exploded out of nowhere, “KE$HA IS EVERYTHING THAT’S WRONG WITH THIS COUNTRY!”

Which, for one thing, it’s not Ke$ha (do I have to put that dollar sign in there? it’s ridiculous), and for another, Icona Pop isn’t an American group.

In any event, I don’t disagree with the general sentiment. But I’m a little concerned he knows who Ke$ha is.

• The Pinterest board My Imaginary Well Dressed Toddler Daughter. (stolen from Candid Diversions, who linked to it last week. But it’s too funny not to share again. Okay, Karen?)


The Imaginary Well Dressed Toddler Daughter’s name is Quinoa. Brilliant.

• In Pet Peeve News: You know how when you are texting, stupid autocorrect jumps in and changes all your words to OTHER words that make no sense? And then you roll your eyes and mutter rude things about autocorrect? Like how did it turn “slid it in upside down” to “slid Irvin upside down”? Irvin? Who’s Irvin? (talking of loading a new thrift store find in the car, get your minds out of the gutter, people)


BUUUUUUT! Autocorrect does NOT change the word when I misspell their. WHY. WHY, autocorrect, WHY? If I get the i and the e backwards (which I DO, EVERY TIME, because I am SPELLY THAT WAY), why doesn’t autocorrect fix THAT? WHY? No. It just mocks me, with that stupid little red squiggle until I change it myself.

• Last Friday at the knitting group, one of the other girls, who is a public school teacher, was telling stories about her job. I said to her (completely unironically, and without thinking), “honestly, I don’t know how you can stand to be around kids all day long.”

• Happy Monday, y’all!
