Random Thoughts Thursday

Why do the Wal-Mart photo center employees act as though my time is unimportant? I understand that you've had a rough day and your machinery was acting up, causing you to get behind in your orders. However, when it's the second time I've been in and my phone number is on the order, the least you could do is make some courtesy calls to let people know it may be a while. At least I put in my order online, so I wasn't actually waiting around in the store for the extra 1 1/2 hours before my prints were done.

The weather here is so weird.

I won the UK lottery, apparently. I'm starting to suspect that maybe all my winnings are not actually legit. Bummer, I could really have used that $800,000.

This has got to be the best misuse of quotation marks ever.

My fellow grammar nerds will get a kick out of this.

Maybe I should have called this post "Random Links Thursday".

If it's not a snow day tomorrow, my kids are going to be reeeeeallly tired tomorrow. It's after 9:00 and there's a lot of bumping and yelling coming from their room. They like the door closed now, but I'm starting to think it's just an excuse to make a lot of noise and imagine that they'll get away with it.

There is too much on the internet. I sit here, at t-minus 18 hours before takeoff for Grandma's, and nothing is packed (okay, the girls "packed" tonight, but you can probably guess what that means: re-packing!), there's laundry to wash and presents to wrap, and the whole house needs to be cleaned so when we get home we can feel really good about ourselves. And here I am, surfin' the web. Ohhh, there had better be school tomorrow.



  1. I seriously love Random Thought Thursday. I love every thought on here. The WalMart one specially. Gotta love WalMart.And the Grammar and quotation one....**Sigh*** Allison I never knew you were so funny. I laugh out loud every time I read these.

  2. Okay, Allison, I really did some Danielle-style overkill on Chris's blog. Yeah, that is an understatement. Oh, well. I hope it is okay.

  3. He got a kick out of it. So did I, actually. Very much like the Danielle I remember from Ricks :) When you and Amy got going...yeah, I just found somewhere else I had to be.

    And he's not writing the blog to make (or keep) friends. He just needed somewhere to air his (many) opinions, and I was frankly getting tired of being the sounding board, so I suggested he start a blog. Now I still have to read it for him, but at least he doesn't go on and on to me ;)

  4. I hate to say it about Walmart but if you are smart you wont work there. Therefore........if only it weren't the closest cheapest place around. We are SO excited to see you!

  5. I am glad that I can disagree with someone, get myself really worked up, and it is all fun. I miss that. I have many sensitive people in my life now. Not Jack, though. He just laughs at me. :)

  6. Allison,
    Amy has a blog!!! See the link on my page. I love the internet!

  7. Hehe..I see Danielle beat me to it! I was just coming to send you my way. Who knew there was this back door world of communicating? I'm just getting started, but may be more active now that I know we're all together again! Anyway, my link is "", notice the unneccessary quotations!

    Take care, Merry Christmas, and Happy New Year!

    P.S. I'm going to have to check out Chris's blog, now that Danielle thought so highly of his opinions! Mwahahaha!
