I need to post between Thursdays.  I just wish I could remember all those things that happen that make me think, This would make a great blog post!

This morning I walked past the bus stop outside the girls' school, and I noticed something written in the fogged up window: "May 21, 2011 is the date of the rapture."  Good to know.

I can remember when I was little and my dad went on the occassional business trip.  It was always a pretty big deal.  Now Chris is out of town every other week and the girls don't bat an eye.  It's just what Daddy does.

I can also remember when he was in school and working late nights at the studio, and I hated being home with the girls without him.  I used to drive half an hour to my parents' house at least once a week just to avoid those long evenings at home alone once the girls were in bed.  Now I don't bat an eye, either.  It's just what we do.

I'm feeling a little burned out on the whole Girl Scout thing.  I guess it's that time of year.  Volunteering ain't easy.

You know when you finish a really, really good book, and then there's nothing to read that can quite compare?  I'm feeling that way.  But I'm excited that I finally have a group of people to discuss the really, really good book with!  I love my book group.

I had a hankering yesterday for a Dime bar, which, of course, they don't sell in this country.  Heath bar comes close, but it's not the same.  Since I couldn't get a fix, I decided to watch old commercials instead.  Here's my favorite, for your viewing pleasure:

Yes, I know I'm weird. I also know that now-unlimited access to YouTube is a very dangerous thing. Funny, but dangerous.

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. Hey, you can get Daim bars at Ikea!!! It's the same thing only Swedish and sounds like it's been knighted by the Queen! You're welcome.

  2. Dude, Allie, one time a few years ago I spent almost an hour trying to find that Dime bar commercial. Glad it's on youtube now. So genius.

  3. What is the really good book? Was it Hunger Games? I am still dying to hear your review!

  4. Bahahahaha! I finally got to watch that commercial (no youtubing at work). I totally forgot about that commercial! Brilliant!!!! Now, go to Ikea and get a Daim bar!
