Random Tuesday Thoughts

This is my first official time on Random Tuesday Thoughts although I've been mentally preparing to participate for what seems like all.my.life. Except it's not just Tuesdays it's Wednesdays and Thursdays and Fridays and Everyday but a Sunday. I like to go slightly comatose on a Sunday.

So lets get Random people! You can thank The UnMom for this later. And you should because I do love her blog.

Firstly, I recently entered Kevin's Pay it Forward Foodie competition. Well, kind of competition. Scheme maybe? ANYWAY, check it out cause I won. I'm so psyched I can't tell you. Although I'm sure 90% of you know Kevin if you don't you must check out his blog Closet Cooking. Some of my favourite recipes are his and particularly his deserts! I'll be holding my Pay it Forward event some time in the new year. Once we get Christmas out the way etc.

You know my friend who's having the hard time? We'll call her Crazy from here on in (it's cool, she knows). Well she's still pretty much at my house 5 out of 7 nights a week which is a big part of why I haven't been able to focus on my wee little blog here. Sometimes I think she is getting better and other times I am convinced she needs some sort of medication. I have a feeling she is bipolar. I've seen it before (within my family and at work) and I'm pretty sure that's what it is. We're having fun though when she's distracted but I find myself sometimes... horribly. Wishing she wasn't my friend. Not that I would really want that, because I do love her so much. But emotionally I don't know if I can handle a friendship that could always been this difficult. Go on, go on, call be a bad person.

Related to this subject, I'm pretty sure I attract the crazies. looking back over many of my friendships I realized that out of all my friends (those that are close to me and those that aren't) I think I only have 2 "normal" friends. And when I say normal I mean that they are not constantly in a spiral of drama or frustration with their rubbish lives. Those are their words, not mine. Mother said maybe it is because I am more patient and sympathetic than others, this is not the case... BUT I am very good at pretending I am. Why don't I seem to know any happy people?! Now don't get me wrong here, I don't mind supporting friends through hard times and I know people aren't happy all the time etc. etc. BUT shoot.... It's so frustrating dealing with people who are their own worse enemies. I'm a positive, shrug it off kinda gal and I'm certain it's the way to be.

Does anyone know how they get the contraceptive implant out? I am worried digging around with tweezers is involved. Apparently though it's a "minor operation" in which they use local anesthetic and then slice you open (the Dr. didn't say slice.) I'm looking forward to it. notreally.

What would you buy your 18 year old brother? Seriously. I can't think of anything. NOTHING. And I swear to god if anyone says a watch I'll thump you one.

My laziness sometimes gets out of hand. Like right now for example, I really need to pee. I've needed to pee for 2 hours but I've held it in because I'm too lazy. It's not so much the walking to the bathroom that bothers me it's the whole having to un-dress, dress, wipe, wash hands etc. boring.

If I don't get a new blog layout soon I will thump someone. Namely my brother. Who, get this, designs websites! I knooooooow! I asked him a year ago to design my blog, he never got around to it, finally I paid him (MY OWN BROTHER PEOPLE!) because I figured then he would have to do it.... 6 months later. Nada. Hasn't even started the bastard thing.

I don't smoke weed FYI but while googling for a place to buy a Big MF Blue Cheese I came across a site with information about Blue Cheese Marijuana. It all seems very complicated and...inviting. I didn't know you could get flavours.

I'm gonna end my random here... Funnily I don't seem to have much random today. Might be because I'm looking forward to getting on with reading my blog roll. See you in the comments!

Wow congrats on winning those foodie goodies. I wonder what you are going to get!

ModernMom said...

Oh I do hope life with "crazy" gets easier. I too attract the down trodden and complicated...just who I am!
Hang in there baby!

Nice Random!

I have and 18 year old. They like food and they like money. Give him a gift card to Chipotle, QDoba or whatever fast food place he goes to. Or give him a gift card to a clothing store. If he has an IPhone or downloads music, give him a gift card for that. They like to spend other people's money.

Oh and I hate to "waste time" peeing too! There are so many things I would rather do!

Happy Tuesday!

Chelle said...

I'm the same way about peeing...haha!

And sorry about Crazy :( Maybe you could convince her that she needs to get seen? At least to go and talk to a professional?

18 year old gift-first thing that comes to mind are giftcards. Super easy and that way they can buy anything they want :)

And yay for a new blog design!! Tell him to hurry it up already ;)

xo and miss you on here!

ps--congrats on your win!

Awwwwww i used to be the kind of person who attracts crazies around me:) Once i got married people started spearing me of that drama solving.. so relieved:)
Oh and maybe you can get your bro' a card that says "you gotta design my blog!! I payed you rat!! Merry Christmas btw:)" if that won't work, tempt him with some Wii/xBox games/accessories:) That should do the trick:)

Happy Randomness!!! Mine's up too:)

This cracked me up! I sometimes have been known to hold my pee because I am too lazy to go to the bathroom too. Nice to "meet" another person who does.
Found you on How to Survive Life in the Suburbs and am now following!

I had a friend who was going through a tough divorce and I felt like she sucked the life out of me with her neediness. Eventually I had to pull back so I could live my own life.
