I’m a little late to the party, but dammit, it’s still Tuesday here and I’ve been busy with shit that actually pays me.

This is my first venture into the Un-Mom’s Random Tuesday post, but I figured I have so much random stuff to say, this meme has my name all over it. Add a few glasses of Red, and I’m ready to go. 🙂

Welcome to “Random Tuesday Thoughts”! (Note: for my sensitive readers, some foul language may follow, as I’m feeling a little irritable right now. Read on at your own discrection 😛 )

Well, I didn’t come in first this time, but “The fey little man” did come in fourth. 🙂

Below are the winners of the W.O.O.F. Contest for February 6. My favorite on this list is Dragonblogger’s “Winter Child’s Play”. Great writing everyone!

In my 25 random things post, you learned that red is my favorite color. Red is the color of so many wonderful things. And let’s not forget that I look really good in red.

It’s also the title of my newest poetic endeaver.

I swore I wasn’t going to do this. I’ve managed to not do it since I was first tagged a few weeks ago. It’s now being talked about in all sorts of places, including MTV, ABC News, and USA Today. You know what I’m talking about. The much loved and ever hated “25 random things about me.”

I’m not one to ever miss a party, so here I am, adding my 25 things to the millions of other useless things other people have said about themselves.

I found the second (and last) poem that I wrote using previous Dictionary.com words of the day. Be kind!

“A Flower Fairy Alphabet”

The fey little man,
how jolly is he,
the future he sees is bright.

He spies babes in the woods,
and leaves on the trees,
and faeries who come by night.

Mellifluous his days they are,
just like honey they flow,
making Zeus in the heavens proud.

The fey little man,
he goes on his way,
his heart, it’s as light as a cloud.


This lovely little ditty was brought to you by immigration attorney. Since the fey little man isn’t from around here, he might need one. 😉

Sometimes I wonder what some f’ing parents are thinking. Like the stupid f’ing parents who brought their kids to the movie “Taken” with Liam Neeson. Seriously, this asshole had his 3-year old son and his 9-year old daughter sitting next to him watching this NOT family-friendly film. (The ages are, of course, approximate, but close enough–you get the idea.)

Check out the trailer–would you take your kids to see this film? It’s rated PG-13, however, I would say it should actually be rated PG in the very least. It certainly isn’t “Finding Nemo,” which is what a 3-year old should be watching. I don’t know why I get so irrationally worked up over this, but I do. some parents are f’ing stupid!

Ah, the meme. Bloggers love them (Okay, many bloggers love memes, other bloggers abhor them and avoid them like the plague.) For personal blogs, a meme is great for a variety of reasons.

  • It’s guaranteed original content–and if it’s not, I’m sure the police are looking for you, what with all the stalker laws we have these days.
  • Memes are self-important. Since we all know bloggers really just blog to “hear” themselves talk, memes give us an opportunity to wax poetic about ourselves.
  • Not only is a meme original content, it’s content. Having blogger’s block? Post a meme!
  • Even though we generally blog for ourselves, we want people to read. And face it, we’re voyeurs at heart. We want to know all those crazy things about you!

Personally, I do like memes. I enjoy reading them, and I enjoy doing them. Especially ones I haven’t seen before, like…

It’s hard to believe, but Chris and I will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary this June. There were some who said we wouldn’t make it 6 months (you know who you are). But make it we have!

10 years and 2 kids later, I’m definitely not the svelte vixen I was back then. I am in shape—round is a shape, isn’t it? 😉 Actually, for those who know me, I have lost 35 pounds since last May. The bad news is I still have over 30 pounds to go. Gah! Fortunately, I have the help of modern medicine.
