No shortage of random

Some weeks I think I have a short supply of random, and then as I jot things down realize I am wrong. Other times I just flat out forget what the random was! Luckily I usually have a photo stash to remind me what I wanted to share with you. Let's jump right in, shall we?

The next time you are having a small gathering and think you might want to order a sandwich, this is what ten feet of wedge looks like...I highly recommend the eggplant, roasted red pepper and fresh mozzarella. Plus, I suggest you bring a minivan!

I saw this awesome project inspiration explanation on one of the science fair displays last week...Love the honesty! Wish I had noted what the project was.

Well fine Words With Friends, then I don't want to play with you either!
My niece got this gift for her first birthday. Really? I am not saying it isn't a great idea. I just can't believe it exists. It makes me feel even more Wilma Flintstoney than usual. At least I was in good company with the fossil flip phone cousins...

A few words about Dolphins...
1. I went to LeMoyne College (the Dolphins). A few years back I was sent notecards to persuade me to donate (pretty sure it wasn't a thank you for donating). The cards had a simple drawing of a dolphin and said "For awhile I lived as a dolphin". Whatever that meant.
2. I got my son the book, 5 Very Good Reasons You Should Punch a Dolphin. I know it doesn't sound very nice, but it is funny (especially if you are a 14 year old boy, or at least have some of the same sense of humor as one).
3. My friend sent me this picture of her new dolphin friend because I just wasn't grasping the description she was giving...She just loves him! Flipper just rolled over in his watery grave, I think.

The husband emailed us this picture from his business trip...
Glad to see they are working hard in New Orleans during this WHOLE week that he is away. I'm wrestling some dangerous things here, and their mouths aren't taped shut!

Here is something I have given way too much thought. I am considering going back to commenting via email to the people who have email enabled. What if they got used to that and haven't been checking back for my responses to their comments? What if did that without telling you all, and then you thought I just wasn't responding to everyone? There is the risk that I will accidentally respond to the great black hole of undeliverable emails though. I might be able to go find something else to worry about, or could at least distract myself by vacuuming!


Phew, now I am all set to start collecting my random thoughts for next week. Thank you Stacy for giving me a place to shed some of that mental clutter!

  5. Ha! I laughed out loud at that science project introduction. Kids are so funny. re: responding to comments, I just do it on my own blog. I realize that 99% of the people will never come back and read it, but I still like to do it.

  6. That science project note is how I do my job. I love those girls.

    I need to buy the dolphin punching book... it might come in handy one day. There really aren't enough books about punching things!

  7. Business trip to New Orleans = highly suspect. Too much fun available! I am always torn about what to do with the commenting thing. I NEVER remember to check back to see if somebody's commented on my comment. But sometimes, I have a response to a comment that I'd like other commenters to see - maybe a clarification or something. I wish Typepad had an option where I could reply in the comments area, and then have it automatically sent as an email also. Grrr.

    1. The ipad craps out in the middle of every single comment I try to leave,so it takes forever it seems. I don't have a problem with the email ones, so that probably makes my decision easier for the email enabled people.

      I have not been to New Orleans, but just not having to cook or grocery shop for a week sounds lovely!

  8. Yeah, my husband goes on trips and calls and is all, "Kiss the kids goodnight, oh wait...I gotta go, desert is here." Bugs me every time. Now I just tell me if he gets killed. Totally unrealistic but you get what I mean.

    And do the e-mail/replies the way you like. Have fun with it and don't worry, I won't hate you too much if you e-mail oblivion instead of me. ;)

    1. I tell him to have someone call if he gets killed. Gawd, I butchered that sentence up there.

  9. I'm ordering the Punching the Dolphin book right now -- title alone worth every penny!

  10. I saw that book about punching a dolphin--I'm going to have to go buy it now!

    I love getting email from you!

  12. That picture of your friend's "dolphin" took me a second. Then I was like ewwww. Insert fishy joke here (yes, I know they are mammals!).

    My hubs is away all this week, too, but I know for a fact they are working him like a dog. He has had meetings at 3 am, their time! He sends me emails about being in hell. I think that might be where he is. But I am dealing with the kids myself this week and it has been . . . challenging. Dinner tonight was hell! He will be home in 2 days. Hurry hon.

    As to the email responses . . . have you thought about doing some type of program that does that automatically like Disqus? I know there are others, but not sure what they are called because wordpress does it automatically. Just a thought.

    1. Dolphin safe tuna? I never would've figured it out!

  13. We just had a science fair here too, but THAT one, my friend, should win first prize! Most obviously an experiment on psychological manipulation.

    I must add that book to my list.
