Random Shiznizzle

A bunch of random stuff that I could probably twitter if I were so inclined, but I feel like laying out as a list instead. Because there are few things I love more than lists. Truly.

-Why, oh why, do the OLD guys at the gym feel the need to wear skimpy little nylon shorts while working out? In what world could you possibly think that it is acceptable to wear clothing so small that we are in real danger of your grizzled manparts coming into view?

-We went out to dinner last night and despite the fact that shrimp were the likely culprit for my intestinal troubles on Monday, I had them again. It's like playing Russian Roulette with my stomach.

-How is one piece of sandwich bread a serving? Doesn't a sandwich by definition require two pieces?

-We had a code brown* while bathing Sophie the other night. It wasn't that long ago that I didn't even know this sort of thing happened. I wish I could go back to that.

-Why are all of the voices in cartoon movies famous people? When did that become a requirement? I remember when Aladdin came out with Robin Williams and it was like "wow, crazy, can you believe he's doing something like that?" What happened to all of the non-celebrity voice actors?

-I have seen five spiders in my house in the last 24 hours. Do they come out in the springtime? I always talk to them on the off chance that one of them might be related to Charlotte.

-After almost two years in my maternity underwear, I finally went to Victoria's Secret the other day and bought some girlie roos. I want my grannies back.

That's it for me. Anything random going on in your life?

*Another fabulous MEPism. It's when the wee ones poop in the tub.


  1. I LOVE lists, too. In fact I have a friend once tell me that I should start a blog of lists. one would dig that but me and you, probably.

    Shrimp hate my stomach. But I could care less. I eat and eat and eat. That's what Commodium-AD is for. (Yes, we call it Commodium.)

    At least the gym dudes aren't like that guy Phoebe dated...remember, in the baggy shorts, undie-less? Chandler was all, "He's showing brain!" Awesomely gross!

  2. Code brown. LOL!

    About the old dudes at the gym? That's funny. Oh, I bet they think they look soooo hawt in their 70's shorts! lol

  3. Fearless are you for going for shrimp again. I'd want you by my side if we were ever spelunking or bungee jumping. (I love finding places to use the word spelunking. It sounds so dirty.)

    There are SOME breads out there who have figured this out. For this I revere them intrepid pioneers of the bakery world.

    And I do remember how revolutionary it was for Robin Williams to play the genie. And it was awesome!

  4. -Husband has some sense of modesty, so it really fries his ass when these guys in the gym locker room/shower area think its okay to walk around with their junk on parade.

    -Chicken caeser salad always (ALWAYS...ALWAYS) gives me the trots. Always. Yet I order it nearly every time we go out. Duh.

    -My first Code Brown was an epic event. I poured pure bleach all over the tub to rid it of the poo germs. Since then, I've had 3 more kids and leisurely baths are a luxury we don't have time for. No one gets baths here...only showers. Yes, even the not-yet-2-year-old takes a shower. Problem solved.

    -Our favorite cartoon movie characters? Shrek and Donkey. Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy. HYSTERICAL.

  5. You are too funny. And I am familiar with everything on the list, including the code brown. Ewww. Wish I didn't have any experiences with that but I do. And I am with you on the voice over actors - I mean these celebs are taking ALL of the work now. I remember when they wouldn't be caught dead doing that.

  6. I thought once you earned your badge of motherhood you could keep the granny undies??? {{damnit}}

    I catch most bugs and "set them free" because I can't stand killing them (they are living too!) My husband gets reall pissed when I am screaming like a girl "GET IT GET IT....but don't HURT IT!!!!"

    GOsh I love that man!

  7. only thing worse than the old guys in the the old european guys in their speedos at the beach here! my retinas have been burned so many times it's not even funny...but I still can't stop looking!

  8. I love randomness. Because I myself am random.

    I bought some new Victoria's undies and I continue to wear my grannies...

    I call the bug man at three spiders. Seriously, three is my limit.

  9. - Why do my co-workers feel 18 hours constitutes a full work week and not just a bra?

    - Why haven't my co-workers been tossed out on their respective bras?

    - My daughter loves her Daddy more than me. Doesn't she notice he always seems to disappear when she craps herself??

    - An 11 YO will wear the same jeans 6 days in a row and not be the least bothered by the stench.

    - I look damn good in green. Thank you St. Paddy ... Saint of Fabulous Spring Fashion tips.

  10. I KNOW the gym guys of which you speak. What is up with that?? And our middle child had to wear those swimmy diapers for a year every time she took a bath because of the code brown issue. Good times.

  11. Grizzled manparts is QUITE a visual...

  12. girly roos are damned uncomfortable...

  13. Let's just say I'm with you in the VS undies. I'll take my full coverage bras and underwear, thankyouverymuch.

    Love the list...!

  14. I'm in my Gigantic Panties again! And let's face it, my not Gigantic Panties were semi-Gigantic anyway... ;)

  15. I'm so with you on that first one! And those little shorts go so nicely with the white tube socks with the colored stripes at the top that they wear too. :)

  16. During a half marathon, my friend and I kept getting passed by an older man whose nylon shorts were so far up his behind he was sporting a thong - and as far as we could figure, it seemed intentional. Not pretty, but good motivation to speed up and pass him. I still can't figure out how he handles the chafing.

  17. I am cracking up at your pseudo twitters and sending my sympathy for the Code Brown. Another friend sent me a message on facebook last week, having just experienced her youngest daughter's code brown.

    Thanks for the shout out!

  18. I'll let you in on a little secret. American Eagle has some really cute and COMFY girlie roos.

    Code Brown. THAT is hilarious!


Give me some sugar, baby!
