Ruffled random!

Things have been busy around here for some of us. Of course then there are those of us who are too caught up in making new friends, and lounging around, to get anything done.
Yeah Foz, I am talking to you! Seems you could have done something to help prevent this recurring nightmare...
...which then could have avoided this fine decorating technique...
Let's pause for a moment here in case you are not one of the five people who read my blog back in 2010, when this story first broke of my life with barn swallows. Part 1, part 2, part 3...go ahead, I'll wait.

Now these birds are fine. They respect boundaries and do not overstay their welcome.

Let's not talk about the fact that they are about ready to depart. More photos to come, but I don't want to clog up the already busting out random with my mother's innocent bystander's brag book.

I was so touched that the kids thought to cover my brand new tulips while they were playing basketball nearby. Sure, I might have made several pleas for them to take pity on my newly planted flowers, but the thought that they listened was heartwarming...
...until I noticed that they had already smashed that one next to the inverted planter.

We were even less impressed with the Birthday Cake Oreos than we were with the m&m's, although I do maintain that they don't taste as bad if you remove the filling.
There is no decent explanation for why I put the filling on my son's phone.

My recent ebay-palooza made me finally feel like there was a reason to be that crazy lady who saved shoeboxes for so many years. I always thought they'd become dioramas, but this was more profitable.

I guess that's it. Time to go to the little girls' room, or as this sign might indicate, the saggy-boobed high-waisted ladies' room.



  1. Foz looks very cozy. I wish I was him right now.

    I'm keeping shoe boxes for diorama purposes as well. Are you calling me a crazy hoarder? ;)

  2. I go to the saggy-boobed room every time I make an entrance. The oreo whatever probably takes better without the filling because the filling has lard in it. I think lard gives stuff an off-taste. I used to keep all my shoes in their box, but then I got a closet with little cubbyholes that are perfect for shoes. They make me and my shoes so happy.


  3. Hey! How did someone get such an accurate picture of me for the ladies room?
    Fun randomness!! :)

  4. Man... I wish I saved shoe boxes!! Jazz needs one for a project and I've got nothing.

    Guess I'll just have to buy a pair... :0D



  5. Thank you for the laugh this morning - makes my day suddenly feel better, says she snuffling through a cold :) I hoard shoe boxes too but I hate the shoes inside them .... might need to take a tip from Valerie - can I borrow a child that needs a shoe box?

  6. These random posts are my favourite. They never fail to make me laugh. :)

  7. I will sing Amazing Grace (very badly) for your tulips, may they rest in peace.

  8. Another blog pal did an ode to the oreo and all their new gross flavours too. I bought the peanut butter and it was awful.

  9. So what graphic artist did that women's restroom design, do you think? We need a talk. I want to come back as a pup in my next life and find out what lounging is all about. Thanks for the smiles and laughs.

  10. Surely this is a site well worth seeing.

  11. There are so many things to discuss......the tin foil, the 2010 reference because I started my blog in 2010. And had 5 readers. For the first year.
    The birthday oreos......the birds.
    I just added your blog to my Bloglovin feed today, I have been meaning to do it for a long time now and here I am!
    So expect much more random, nonsensical comments like this from me going forward.
    But I will bring Double Stuf's next time.

  12. Of course the woman's room sign is high waisted, She, like the rest of us, is trying to hide her muffin top.

  13. I thought I was the only one who saved shoeboxes? I wish they hadn't put that picture of me on the bathroom door.
