Well...I'm fine after that Call the Midwife season finale

Perfectly fine.


BUT HEY! At least I can hope some Doctor Who will leak into season 8...
...next year...(Or the Christmas special...it would have been on fire by Christmas 1963)

I can't tell if TMNT is making a return or going through the final death throes.

I also can't tell if that's a spider on the wall, or just dirt.

At work we've been busy moving the stuff from upstairs down to the first floor. (So sad to see it looking so empty. ) I'd gotten off the elevator with a quad (the typical clothing store display rack thingy with the four arms) and was pushing the thing past what remains of the area were women's purses are displayed. There was a middle aged/older Indian couple there... I could feel the husband staring. I assume it was the 60% off sign on the quad that was so appealing.

I know people from India can have a rather bad habit of staring at people, but come on... As I moved past on the opposite side of a tall-ish fixture and a column next to it... I just knew when I rounded that corner they'd still be staring. I could just feel it. So I turned that corner past the column, half glanced real quick, and damned if they weren't both there, now turned right toward me, lined up side by side, just staring. Wtf people, come on... Weirdness. (At least I wasn't followed. lol)

Homophones are funny.
How two completely different words can sound so similarly, even though they have vastly different meanings.

Giving my 21-month-old nephew his first try of Pop Rocks candy. Wasn't quite sure what he'd think of that, but it seemed to be a hit.

I never really told anyone this, but ...

I have severe body angst. Generally, I wished my body was healthier (whiter teeth, moister hair, ECT.).

I feel like I'm a loser when it comes to my body's average condition.

Something I'm sure most people can relate to on some level...





Gedmatch.com, DNA genealogy site... among the list of related matches and the names/nicknames listed, apparently I'm related to a Casey Jones on my dad's side. (And looks to be just 6 months younger than me... Wish I could ask them how the Turtles are since they're the right age to get it. lol)

I can't believe that of all the toys these cats could possibly be enraptured with, it's the dozens of tiny rubber ducks my brother brought home.



So you can imagine how that goes at night.


Pretty soon the house will be like tracking Friendly Floatees.

Lol, my cat Angel is a rubber duck "killer" too! She frequently decimates the row of duckies on the edge of the bathtub by jumping in and out of it when she's "on a tear". She goes streaking through the apartment and jumps in the tub, knocking them off and chasing her tail, batting them around, etc.

Yeah, my brother had them left out on the kitchen table for them to get access to easily.


I don't think they'd have much interest in the 'big duck'...which is just the water squirter where they're dressed as something.

That particular one is a wrestler. It's fun to circle the little ducks around it like they're worshiping it

Mr D sort of collects them, we have over 120 total, most of them in the bathroom. And only two of them are duplicates. We get some interesting comments when guests who have never been here before come over and see our "flock".

Well...that would probably explain the "duckie" part of the names

Lol, actually, it's because I MARRIED a "Duck"! (No, really. It's our last name.) But, yeah, he totally plays with the name- see above collection. And I originally used the screenname when I was a member/mod on the Marvel forums. (A play on our name, with a dual nod to Ms. Marvel, who is my fave female Marvel character, and Howard the Duck.) I jokingly sugggested adding part of my maiden name to his on the marriage license to make it McDuck, but he nixed the idea.....

Making and baking French dinner rolls is extremely difficult and stressfully tiring.

What is the logic in the weather being bad enough to close schools for the day, "But come on kids, pile into the car and lets go shopping!"

Kind of annoying to see them show up at my store, hyper kids in tow. Either stay home or get back to class... >.> (So much for hoping for a quiet time at work, but at least we closed at 2pm and got to go home.)

I'm jealous of countries that have "snow days", we don't have that in Norway. Like, you can be excused from being a half hour late to school if there's like 10 feet of snow and the roads haven't been cleared of snow, if not there's no excuse of being late.

When I was studying in the UK, the whole university was closed with 2 inch of snow, The whole town was in chaos and trains had derailed. The only people meeting up was us Norwegians befuddled on why it was all empty and no lights on
