Random Thoughts Thursday

A friend of mine shared an absolutely hilarious website with me. I suppose it's entirely possible that everyone else already knows about Awkward Family Photos, but if not, you really must go check this out. (note to my mother: please do not allow this website to inspire you to dig up any of our old family photos. The ones where I had big glasses and big bangs, in particular, need to stay hidden deep, deep in the recesses of the crawl space, never again to see the light of day.)

Of particular note on aforementioned website: LOL Cats (but not for the faint of heart - don't say I didn't warn you!)

Why is it that 36 lbs of pears is suddenly not enough?

Our ants seem to have given up hope. This is encouraging, although I'm not putting away the Raid yet.

Right now Ellie is quizzing me on my ABCs. I think I'm doing pretty well, although it appears that I keep confusing little "r" and little "j". Huh.

Chris told me last night about a meeting he has in CA on a day that he's not usually down there. And I realized that this meeting takes place two days before our family vacation, also in CA, is scheduled to begin. Since he's sort of running the show at this meeting, and it really makes no sense for him to fly home one day only to fly back down the next, it looks like we girls will be meeting him there. And I get to take all three kids on a plane, by myself. Good times.

But we get to go to Disneyland, so I think I can handle it. Disneyland is totally worth it!

My garage smells like rotting potatoes. But I checked the potatoes and they all seem fine. This is slightly unnerving.

When you think about it, America's Funniest Home Videos was really the precursor to a lot of today's reality TV. Which begs the question, why do you think about it?


  1. I LOVE America's Funniest Home Videos. Seriously, nothing makes me laugh harder than watching people fall down. I know I'm terrible

    Oh, and LOL Cats....frightening!!

  2. If there's one thing I've learned, smells never lie. So if it smells like rotting potatoes, you have a rotting potato somewhere.

    I've also seen the Awkward Family Photos website and it was pretty funny, but then it started getting on my nerves because whoever is in charge of it doesn't make funny comments. They're mostly stupid. I guess I'm comparing them to the Cake Wreck's girl and that's just not fair.

  3. Did you read the Awkward Family Story: The Thanksgiving Newsletter. It is the most hysterical thing I've read in a long long time. And I thought I was a control freak!

  4. I wasted my morning away looking at those Awkward Family Photos. I'm still laughing. What's with the Skivvies Family?

    Last night I thought Ches smelled like alcohol. Couldn't figure it out. It was such a strong smell! But something yeasty was in the garbage disposal and the smell was actually coming from there. Keep searching for that rotten potato. You'll find it.

    AFV is the BEST show! Why do I think about it? Because my family likes to sit and watch other people fall down or get kicked/hit in crotch. It makes us laugh. A lot. Ummm, okay, so that wasn't a reason as to why I think about it. I'll get back to you. Maybe.
