Random Tuesday Thoughts...


Today is Groundhog Day. Is there a more ridiculous tradition in existence? I don’t really understand the scientific method behind hauling a hibernating rodent from his hole in the middle of winter just to determine if he will see his shadow or won’t he? Will there be 6 more weeks of Winter? I say leave the damn rodent alone and let me provide you with my scientific theory… the first day of Spring is March 20th, so until Spring actually arrives, it’s still Winter, so by my scientific calculations – there will be approximately 6 more weeks of freaking Winter. Shocking, right?

I took my car for a car wash a couple of weeks ago, which I didn’t realize until I started through it that it was one of those old fashioned ones with the brushes and old carpet pieces flying about. Anyhow, my car ends up getting stuck half way through. I wait for about 10 minutes and nothing happens. I can’t move forward – something is blocking my way. I suspect it’s a body – likely a mob hit. So in my wisdom, I have to back all the way out of the car wash and in the process, need to wave 3 cars out of my way to do so. When I finally get out, the attendant tells me that the “car wash is old and just moves slowly and that I should learn to exercise more patience”. WTH? I WASN’T moving. At what point in time does it become an emergency? Waiting for 10 minutes obviously isn’t being patient enough; however I believe I exercised great patience in not telling that guy to go @#%* himself. He didn’t appreciate the fact that I brought that one to his attention.

My 17 year old son has become a “legally ordained minister” online. I suspect it might not be totally legitimate (insert sarcasm), but as an ordained minister, he can apparently officiate wedding ceremonies, baptisms, and other religious ceremonies. He’s even willing to offer a family and friend discount should anyone need his services. I’m very happy to see that his study period was used so wisely this semester on career advancement.

A co-worker made some gluten free muffins for another co-worker, who obviously has a gluten allergy (since there is no other reason for willingly eating those things). If you ever get the opportunity to taste a gluten free muffin – do yourself a favor and politely say “no thank you, I have a gluten free allergy”. “Gluten free” is just another way of saying “tastes like ass”.

Congrats on having an ordained minister in your household! It's better than the day-trader I have in mine! ;) Gotta love teenagers.

I totally agree with you on the gluten free crap!

Happy Tuesday!

I hate car washes!! When they break down or they simply decide to go super slow...inevitably no is around to fix it. However, if you get the tiniest bit upset and attempt to fix the problem yourself...inevitably someone is there to blame us for our ineptitude! Aurgh!!

Thanks for commenting on my site! It's good to know that you are still here.

My husband's uncle actually got ordained online to perform our wedding so I guess if it's not legit we have been illegally saying we have been married for the last 5 years - lol! :) Hopefully it is legit and I agree that he could be doing worse things! Once again, a very funny post!

I can't believe you even bothered washing your car, especially after your first paragraph. I'm waiting another 6 weeks to do mine.
