Thursday Ten: Why Can’t I Think Of Anything Witty? Edition

1. First of all – My winner of the SEAL giveaway: Linda! I asked The Princess to randomly pick a number and Linda’s was picked! You’re going to LOVE this cd, Linda!

2. In guitar lesson today, I learned palm muting and percussive strumming which all sounds way more interesting than it really is. It’s actually a bit trickier than it sounds – or it is to me anyway, but it’s a cool concept anyway.

3. I’ve been listening to Missy Higgins’s “Where I Stood” a lot today. I heard it on the way to guitar lesson and less than two hours later, on my way home. Then I downloaded it. Then I listened to it on YouTube. I guess it was on Grey’s Anatomy, but I missed it. Very pretty song.

4. I am still slowly muddling my way through “Catch-22”. This was one of my projects for my 101 List, and I have to say – it’s amusing, but I don’t love it (sorry Joe). I’ve been working on it for a month now – I read a few chapters and then set it aside for something else. At this rate, it’ll be June before I finish this freakin’ book.

5. I’m back to being engrossed by American Idol. My reality television watching is a bit sick – and not “sick” in that cool way that people who are way cooler than me say that something is “Sick” and mean that it’s the most amazing-super-awesome-thang on the planet. No, sick like there is totally something about this habit that I should be embarassed by (but I’m not). And all I’ve gotta say is that if that whiny crybaby comes back as a wild card, I’m gonna be annoyed.

6. Tax. Season. Sucks.

7. I am so NOT a shopper, but I have this crazy need for retail therapy today. I keep thinking of all the things I want – I want some shoes, new books that haven’t been read by anyone else, warm sweaters, a funky hat. I am going to have to feed the urge. It’s really odd (and probably related to #6).

8. I just scrubbed my floors this afternoon. Winter annoys me – all the sand and salt put down on ice gets tracked in, and then it’s dragged all over the floors. My lovely Dyson is a way easy substitute for sweeping that stuff up, but I still have to mop. I don’t own a mop, so I rock it Cinderella style (as Jenny said) and actually SCRUB the floors. Because I heart the planet, I use vinegar instead of some toxic hooey, so my house smells kind of like Easter eggs right now.

9. I continuously prove how fantastically dorky I am. I have now made up a song for my children about their winter clothes. In fact, me and my daughters all sang it together this morning while getting Pumpkin ready for school. And I want to say that it was the lamest thing you could ever imagine – but I’d be lying because it was really super cute (“I am Pumpkin’s glove, I am Pumpkin’s glove, I keep her hands from getting cold…”).

10. According to the iTunes Play Count, I have listened to “Where I Stood” by Missy Higgins four times in the writing of this post. Huh. What is your favorite song these days?

    Your randomness rawks sista! I enjoyed the post and the little things that make you, well you.

  2. Guess I should bust out my Missy Higgins CD – I won it at Blissdom gno. I even got a Missy Higgins canvas bag. It’s hip. I’m not.

  3. I didn’t go to Gno. Dangit. I’d love to know if the rest of the cd is any good. (And you are SO hip).

  4. I won! I won! Thanks to The Princess for picking my number! I can’t wait to listen to it. What a lovely surprise!

    And that #6 thing about tax season? Oh, yeah. Big time. I hate it!!!

  5. The only way I can get my little monster dressed is by making up silly songs or pretending that his stuffed animals are actually getting him dressed. WAY too much creative play before I have had my coffee I tell you!
