Random Crap, er, Stuff

1. I never really noticed before? But whenever we chastise the boys, for whatever reason, we soften the blow by tacking on “dude” at the end of our sentence. Example: “You’re bored? Then why don’t you go outside, you know that place that doesn’t require artificial lighting with the big yellow ball, I believe it’s called a sun, and doesn’t smell like dirty socks, to shoot some hoops … dude.” Or when my husband is irritated at me for not following up on something, “How come our websites are down? Have you contacted customer support? We really need to get that back up and running, HUUUUUNNNN.” (He really does stretch it out – drives me batty). I guess we think these (cool) endearments somehow make what we’re saying less annoying.

They don’t.

2. I thought this was cool:

In 1973, the spectacular demonstration was perfected by Thomas Briggs and Warren Rauscher, two amazing high school science teachers.
Over thirty-five years later, chemists are still trying to fully understand how it works.

What they do know: Several reactions take place at once. One of them produces iodine, which gives the amber color. Hydrogen peroxide reduces other chemicals into iodide ions. Along with normal iodine, the charged particles interact with starch to create it a blue-black color. The speeds of those transformations are constantly changing. As one overtakes the other, the color suddenly changes.

Hey, it’s something fun to watch when your brain needs a moment to decompress from life’s madness.

3. This is what my name means:

K: Really silly
A: Gorgeous
R: Good bf/gf
E: deeply in love with his/her gf/bf
N: Sexy

So, to sum up, I’m a gorgeous, sexy, sometimes silly, but good wife who deeply loves her husband.

I’ll buy that. 😉 What does your name mean?

4. Do you….

Dread menu planning?
Waste money at the supermarkets?
Have little time to prepare dinners?
Need some new family, friendly & fast recipes?

Menu In A Box is all you need to organize, shop, cook and bring your family back to the dinner table. The Menu In A Box 100 Day Meal Planning Kit is a wonderful and practical e-book that includes corresponding shopping lists, recipes, great time saving, budget & organizational tips. Each week all you have to do is print the menu you would like for the week, shop in your pantry first, then go to the shops and start cooking!

Doesn’t this sound like a fun, practical timer saver?

You can thank me for bringing this tidbit of information to your attention by having me over for dinner sometime. Just pencil me in on the calendar thing, mmmkay? 😉

5. Have you seen this creepy girl? Virtual reality is getting just a bit TOO real for my tastes. And what is up with her bloodshot eyes? Did she stay up too late partying? Perhaps that explains the blank/crazed stare this chick has.

*shudder* I’ll take the old fashioned arrow cursor, thankyouverymuch.
