Just stopping by . . .

Sometimes I feel I've got to (clap, clap) run away,
I've got to (clap, clap) get away . . .
This song doesn't really have anything to do with my post today (since I really don't know yet what I am going to write about . . . ) but I heard it on the radio yesterday and was reminded of how much I like it. I remember, back when I was a night club girl for a short phase in my life, they used to play some remix version of this song, and I used to get so irritated, because why ruin a good song with record scratching and extra crazy beats?! Oh well, atleast it was fun to dance to, which by the way I don't have an ounce of rhythm in my body, but anything is possible with a "little" bit of alcohol. Did I ever tell you the Goldschlager story? Well, that's a story for another day . . . .
Soooooo, where was I ? Oh, that's right, I have no idea . . . just feel the need to write . . . So what's been going on over here in this crazy house? Hmmmm . . .

. . . Mr. Egypt and I were watching My Super Ex-Girlfriend the other night . . . what a silly movie, especially the shark scene, oh dear . . . when we were interrupted by the shrill and torturous screams of Mr. Too Smart being attacked and carried away by 17 Bazillion biting spiders!!! We ran to his room to try to save him only to find that he was just FIGHTING WITH HIS GIRLFRIEND AGAIN!!!!! Too bad, taking on 17 Bazillion biting spiders would have made a great story! Oh please, I am begging you Mr. Too Smart, move on already!!!

Taking my own advice and moving on . . .

. . . Charming Child woke up this morning to find that all of the ants from the Greater Sacramento area had taken up camp in the formal living room AKA her stage/gymnastics floor. Before I could take care of the ants, she vacuumed them up!! Now, the ants are probably sitting in the vacuum bag, plotting a way to burst through and take over the house! I think I am going now to remove the bag and throw it away, or quite possibly burn it because I hate those little itchy things. I hate the way they just invite themselves in to the house whenever they get tired of being outside, and if it isn't bad enough that they bring themsleves, they bring their entire extended family as well . . . oh, nevermind, you get the point!

Well, I guess the bottom line is, nothing exciting has been going on over here in this small section of the world . . . I just wanted to say "Hi!"

LOL!! The life and times of life with teenagers and tweenagers at your house sounds vaguely familiar to life at MY house!!! Our excitement was finding a snake under our trash can Monday night and having to kill it with the shovel to keep it from biting us... not quite on the same level as ants, but equally as amusing to think about what makes our worlds exciting?!?!?

BTW... I HATE remixes of songs that I like(d). And, even more, when these new bands remake them and when I start singing them in my car, my teenager looks at me in contorted disgust that I would actually KNOW the words to one of HER songs from HER generation. LOL

Ok Missy - give up the goods. How did you get the Egyptian photo?

Mixed Up Me said...

Google Images- Eye of Ra, save the image, then add it through "edit layout" I just wish I could get my title to go further down to the lighter part of the image.

Google Images Egypt, there is a beautiful picture of the pyramids at sunset. Actually I saved it and tried it, but it doesn't work as well on my layout. I'll email it to you.

It would be really nice if you could write something everyday... i have to be at work for like 9 hours you know.and i have nothing to read when you dont write!!!

Oh.. funniest thing.. i was checking my email (At work of course) and the main story on yahoo was called "Wasting time at work? You're not alone"

It was this whole story about U.S. workers waste an average of 20% of their work day surfing the internet and catching up on gossip.
I thought it was hillarious.. like they were speaking to me.

Oh and right underneath was an article on how to successfully work with your spouse! Both very informative..

We'll. im sure i've already used way more than my 20% allocation! :)

See ya..
