random tuesdayness

~ managing to brush my teeth and set the washing machine going while cradling a 14kg kiddie swathed in 2 blankets, clutching 2 dollies and a toy panda, makes me feel like a super-hero

~ after years of practise I am now able to drink a cup of hot tea while driving without spilling any on myself but I've yet to work out how to prevent my sunglasses from steaming up [and the sunglasses are non-negotiable so no, wise-asses, 'Don't wear them' is not a acceptable solution]

~ is it uncool to love a homeless person's coat so much you consider offering them 100 bucks for it? Would the more humane approach be to offer them a new (but obviously not as stylish) coat in exchange?

~ today the gods of green traffic lights smiled on me

~ I hate having to carry actual cash, bring on that implanted bar-code thingie in my forehead I say

~ sandwiches cut into little stars really are more appealing to toddlers. This is not just a cutesy-pie myth as I'd long suspected

~ after pondering for some time whether I'd rather eat a hedgehog or a rock, I've decided definitely a rock. All the pain in one mouthful.

~ I love my new shoes

I love your new shoes too. They are a good grey. I have light grey ones and now.. er.. I might have to get some darker grey ones.

Look at me commenting on blogs rather than wasting time on Facebook! Woo hoo! xx

Would totally eat a rock too, but will most likely in the end go with some pie.

100 bucks for a homeless person's coat?! come on now... i definitely support the idea of a homeless person coat exchange. much better.

and i agree- forehead barcodes would make life a lot easier.

Great list! I like ankle support in my sneakers - these are divine.

this - this was funny stuff! I kept think - yep, that random fact is my favorite until I read the next. Love it.

Come over and help me finish my ongoing story today. Bring your friends. It is just a fun game. Right now Julie from MPC is implying the plane will crash.....

btw - if I was a super hero I would wear those shoes!

julochka said...

do you think that the homeless people would have the means to take your implanted bar code thingie when an urgent coat need strikes?

what about a new ponderable...worm or plaster model of the pyramids?

As a kid I loved rock candy, not gummy bear hedgehogs, so definitely would eat a rock over a hedgehog.

I've never worn converse. I envy girls who can:)

Love your Converse, I live in mine...
Bar codes... would be great, I prefer mine in the palm not the forehead.

ooh! I spy hr geiger in the background! nice. (I'm not actually describing his work as nice. I'm saying "nice" as an affirmation. Is that a South African thing?)
