when there is a news story about kids doing bad things and no one you know is in it. High school seniors from Dover High School vandalized the schools of their arch rival New Philadelphia early Friday morning and thank goodness the three nieces I have who are seniors at Dover weren’t involved. http://fox8.com/2013/05/20/students-accused-of-vandalizing-rivals-school/
I was waiting for a prescription at Walgreen’s recently and as I stood in the pharmacy I was astounded by all the “at home” test kits you can get. You can test for colon disease, cholesterol, marijuana, cocaine, and DNA(!) as well as buy your own alcohol breathalyzer. Ohhhhkay. I’m sure the effectiveness varies, but I sure hope I never have to get those drug or alcohol tests when my kids are teens!
I was just googling “oval silver engraveable pendants” (mother’s day or birthday idea for myself) and clicked on one I thought was pretty. I was creeped out to see that it was a “memorial” pendant — it can hold some hair, ashes or dried flowers. Yuck!
I’m really not a Taylor Swift fan, but I just downloaded the third song from her – “22″. I’m not sure why — I’m WAY past 22 and even when I was 22 I was getting married and not “feeling 22″ like she sings about in her song. Maybe there’s a part of me that sometimes feels like reliving days I never had.
the person who holds the “stop” and “slow” signs when there is road construction. I’m so absent minded and easily distracted I would only be on the job about two minutes before I was responsible for a crash.
I was driving downtown today and saw a guy holding up his droopy pants. I’m thinking, Who really needs one more thing to worry about? I can barely get through the day without losing my car keys, credit cards, sanity, etc. — why would I add making sure my pants are droopy but not too droopy to the list??
People magazine just named her this year’s World’s Most Beautiful Woman. What?? I can think of a bazillion women more beautiful – Jennifer Garner, Penelope Cruz, Anne Hathaway, Jennifer Lawrence, Angelina Jolie, etc. Plus, Paltrow seems like a real snot.
know of the term “torch song” but Bruno Mars “When I Was Your Man” is a really great one. But boy am I glad I don’t relate to any torch songs now.
This “literary classic” has been published in 23 languages, was #1 on the NY Times Bestseller list, won a Newberrry Award and was turned into a movie. I never saw the movie because when I read the book for the first time several years ago I hated it. When my youngest daughter asked me to read it to her recently, I did it begrudgingly. But then I thought, maybe I’ll like it better this time. Maybe I just missed something the first time around. Well, the second time wasn’t any better. I just don’t get the hype.
I knew of four women in my children’s entire school district who didn’t color their hair. Then one colored her hair last year. That left three. Two weeks ago I saw another had dyed her hair. Then today at Marc’s, I saw that the only other holdout had dyed her hair. That leaves … me. But I have no intention on dyeing my hair. I guess I’m truly one of a kind now.
