Ramblings part 49

Here’s what’s on my [very random and ADD-ish] mind:

santa

People pay money for this?!  Who would spend $2 on an app when you can select a picture of Santa and assign it to the contact of your choice for free?  With a little advanced planning [and some post-holiday editing] take matters into your own hands.  Save those eight quarters.  Hell, you don’t even need a visual.  Adam relishes his talks with ‘Sponge Bob’– a.k.a Aunt Holly— and he’s never seen a photo of anything absorbent, porous, and yellow as we call.  Feel free to send me your money and I’ll call your children pretending to be their favorite North Pole denizen.

Detective Stabler?!

Detective Stabler?!?!

My friend, Katelin, works as a correctional officer in Mississippi.  She vouched for the veracity of this article.  Read on for 7 Horrifying Things You Didn’t (Want to) Know About Prison.  Pruno anyone?

starbucksWhenever I hear somebody order a decaf, half whip, non fat, two pump whatever at Starbucks I’m rolling my eyes before they’ve even finished their ridiculously high maintenance request.  But the barister/barista is used to it, right?  That’s my justification as I run the risk of being a pain on the ass for ordering something that’s not on the menu. 

choresCleaning house equals the bane of my existence, especially when you have dual citizenship at two residences such as myself.  I’m always trying to find a method to my madness.  In the past I’ve made daily, weekly, and monthly chore charts for each room but I’ve never done an overall master plan such as this.  Shouldn’t the breakdown theoretically seem less daunting?  To me it doesn’t.  I could easily spend the entire day cleaning as stipulated here– but how do kids and work fit into that equation?  I can’t speak for everyone here but I’m not particularly fond of watching the blood, sweat, and tears of my labor intensive housekeeping ventures fall victim to destruction by children within 24 hours.  Yet I’m willing to give it a try.  And I’ll keep you posted as to the results of my ‘Daily Homemaking Schedule.’

Jumping Zen master!  I dare you not to smile.  Isn’t it the best when both the child and the kid are having fun as one commenter so eloquently stated?  😉

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,

About Cocktails With Hemingway

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
