Random Thoughts Thursday

Today I’ve been inspired by this post to give my daughters’ teachers more credit. They go above and beyond the expectations and my children are thriving in school because of them. One day maybe I’ll do a post about our far-from-perfect-but-still-so-wonderful little school.

I haven’t showered yet. It’s after 10:00 on a weekday, and this is rare for me, but if the girls get a day off today then I should, too!

Except that I really don’t get a day off because I have somewhere to be before noon today. Better get crackin’.

I have just finished two rather depressing books in a row. Time for something light and fluffy, I think. Any suggestions?

I can hear the 5th Harry Potter book on tape competing with the 6th Harry Potter DVD commentary, and it’s really confusing.

We made really awesome tie-dye shirts with Lexi's Brownie troop on Monday and I can’t wait to wear mine. My inner hippie is breaking free.

I am so ready to be done with Girl Scout cookies (although a few more boxes of Tagalongs around here wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.)

Why, oh why do my daughters think it’s hilarious when their father belches at the dinner table? They should stop encouraging him

My brother introduced our family to this little gem, and I think it’s only fair that I share it with more people, because, well, who doesn’t want to see a ridiculously happy Russian man lip-synching complete nonsense?


  1. I can. NOT imagine Chris belching at the table...or anywhere else for that matter....

  2. Isn't The Road amazing? Yet I needed a good streak of fluff to recover from how dark it is.

    I heard an interview on NPR with the author of a new book called Major Pettigrew's Last Stand. It is a romance between two widowers in a small English town. He's the major, she is of Pakistani dissent. It sounds very, very, promising as the book opens with him answering the door in his dead wife's house coat. I have it on hold at the library and they are just getting the copies is now.

  3. I am reading "Playing the Enemy" by John Carlin. Very inspiring. Was surprised at how engaging and fast paced it is since it is a historical based novel. They made the movie "Invictus" from this book which I also enjoyed.

  4. Light and fluffy. Okay. I recommend THE SUGAR QUEEN by Sarah Addison Allen or A COMPANY OF SWANS by Eva Ibbotson. Lovely both of them. :)

  5. The Spellman Files by Lisa Lutz. I just finished it today! And, I wrote a blog about how much I loved it! It's a series and I can't wait to get the next one. This was definitely light and fluffy and funny! Read it! I promise you will love it!

  6. Becki, Chris's comment on reading your comment was "People in the ward think I'm so serious." There's a whole side of him you don't see on Sundays.

    Thanks for the suggestions everyone! Now if I just had time to get to the library... I guess I'll have to settle for something I have here. Sigh.

  7. Anne Fadiman's Ex Libris. Not exactly fluffy, but light and entertaining. Connie Wills "To say nothing of the dog" is very good, but it is the second of a series and the first "Doomsday Book" is not happy- but you don't have to read them in order.

  8. I have to wonder how Chris acts at church if people there think he is serious. Clearly they do not know my brother.

  9. I haven't showered yet today either. And it's 3:00 PM, so I win! And that Russian lip-sinking man is super bizarre. I love how after the first 30 seconds he forgets what he's supposed to be doing.
