Random Thoughts Thursday

Welcome to Random Thoughts Thursday, the bloggy carnival thingy where we post about...whatever pops into our heads.

Joining in is simple. All you have to do is post your own random thoughts on your blog and link back here (see below) so we can make this a great big Random Thoughts Thursday festival! Anyone and everyone is welcome to participate. Even if you think I have no idea that you read my blog, and whether or not you know me personally, I'd love for you to join in. And if you don't have a blog but you're still feeling random, feel free to leave a few thoughts in the comments for everyone else to enjoy.


Why do I always have to do the word verifications on Blogger twice? And why, when I decide to mention it on my blog, do I suddenly not have the problem anymore?

The word verifications on Facebook sound like band names. Or at least the band names David Letterman used to come up with. Spadeful Month? Rockville Coccyx?  Awesome.

My two favorite band names: Highwater Pants and Quality Chicken.

I am so very, very tired of the Lion King soundtrack.

We watched Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure with the girls last weekend. In case you’re wondering, it’s still hilarious. As an adult, I find the parts with Sigmund Freud funny in a way I did not when I was younger. I’m just saying...

I have put on the same pair of shorts the last three mornings. Then I’ve taken one look at the weather and changed. Below 80 degrees in July??? Seriously? Today is looking more promising, although the prediction is a high of 71. We’ll see, I guess.

Did you know the Post Office has a minimum size requirement for envelopes? I didn’t until Monday. [Edit: sorry, make that Tuesday!]

Apparently Vicki went up a level in swimming lessons, but no one told her.

Watching "So You Think You Can Dance" has become a family activity. Except that we send the kids to bed halfway through on Wednesday nights, and they’re not allowed to watch the results show on Thursdays because it's past their bedtime.  Aren't we mean?

I hate it when I find a grammar or spelling error in something I've written.  Hate it.

Does it make me lazy if I’m allowing the two 9-year-olds to fix lunch for the rest of the children around here (a 7-year-old and two 4-year-olds) so I can blog? Or does it just make me crazy?  I guess if the house starts to smell like burning ramen noodles, then I'll have to do something about it.  But they offered, so who am I to say no to that?

I have an urge to listen to American Pie, but I can’t find our Don McLean CD.

My tomatoes are all looking healthy, the squash are producing in a very squash-like fashion, and so far I haven’t had any allergic reactions to anything in the garden. Every bug bite makes me panic, though.

I think I’ll make Swedish pancakes for dinner tonight. With homemade strawberry jam. Yum.

Your turn!

A bit of advice for the linky tool: please link directly to your Random Thoughts Thursday post, and not to your entire blog. To do this, simply click on the title of your post. This will take you to that post's page, and you can then copy and paste that url into the linky. This way people linking from my blog won’t have to scroll through any other posts you might put up to find your randomness. Thanks!


  1. I feel the exact same way about Lion King. It is all my girls listen to in the car. I've taken to bringing the ipod and putting in one earphone and listening to podcasts to stay sane.

    71 Sounds nice right now. We have been around 100 for weeks.

    We did German pancakes! Yum!

  2. I have a life goal to start a band. It's going to be called "White Bread Toast". I better trademark it before someone else steals it! You are living lifestyles of the rich and famous-you've got someone to do your laundry, someone to cook lunch, now all you need is a compulsive cleaner and you'll be set! Parenthood is finally start to pay off!!

  3. Em, we did German pancakes a couple of weeks ago with the homemade jam. That was to celebrate the Ebert side (or something). This week we're going Youngberg with the Swedish pancakes.

    Lori, you have a good point. So if Lexi does the laundry and Vicki cooks, I guess that means I better start training Ellie to clean. I knew having 3 kids would make sense some day!

  4. Have you ever used You should be able to find American Pie there.

  5. We watched B&T'sEA just a couple weeks ago!! Isn't it so awesome?! Such a good movie. Rebecca gave it to me for my birthday.

    Also, this. I didn't watch the whole thing, I don't know if it's good quality audio--I'm sure if this is dumb, you can find it elsewhere on youtube.

  6. I love for those got to hear oldies :) Gonna start my own random thought entry!!
