Ridiculous Things...

Just a partial list of general ridiculousness...
1. I finally found the 99.5% of my missing K2's room. She had 17 towels stored in there. No wonder I felt like we were always out of towels.
2. Last night, while delivering the lit birthday cake to the birthday boy, I caught my hair on fire...are you done laughing yet?...I looked down and what I saw looked like how leaves burn. I managed not to drop the cake, or catch anything else on fire, but holy crap, batman, it stunk so bad - not just my hair, but the entire house. When I got in the shower this morning and the water hit it, I was treated to a replay of how great it smelled.
3. No walk today because of stupid wind and rain. And it's cold.
4. Putting dinner in the crock pot and forgetting to plug it in.
5. Sending the kid to the bus stop (without an umbrella), then realizing it's raining and you should have just taken him to school, but it's too late now because the bus is waiting at the traffic light. At least he didn't have to wait in the rain for long.
6. Programming music to play on my laptop and then forgetting to un-mute the sound.
I think that's enough for now...the hair burning and the towels are the most spectacular, at least to me.

Okay, THAT'S why you had a slow start today? Because you forgot to unmute the sound?

*snort* Okay.

P.S. My word verification is "entingly." It made me think of SamandDean. Hee.

Victoria said...

Absolutely! It's a good excuse, don't you think?

That's a great word verification! :)

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

Having to fix your music before you start is a good excuse. Having it be just the mute button is funny, but not a good excuse. :)

Hey, now my word verification is frowns! LOL So appropriate.

Victoria said...

Ah well...that's so me though.
I can't believe your word verification is frowning at me!! *izsad* Especially after pulling my writing day out of the toilet and managing 4k words!

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

It was very focused frowning, topic-centric. The word verification doesn't get out much. It didn't know how much you wrote.

Victoria said...

Well that explains it. I guess I should get my verifications out more so they're in touch with the real world...or at least my version of the real world! LOL
