Random Thoughts

Thank you to everyone who has sent informative e-mail and to Denny with the NICE Bod (ladies, the man has a seriously nice upper body) who also provided links, Friday night, History Channel, 8PM, The History of Boudicca. And if you are wondering why I picked Boudicca for my blog, go HERE. So tomorrow night at 8... after T-ball, I shall be here watching The History Channel!

Where in the heck am I going to keep my big jar of Jiff now that I don’t have a desk at work? Hmm. I think they’re giving me a small filing cabinet, to share. I guess it will go there… I hope my desk partner doesn’t mind when she opens the filing cabinet to find a monster container of Jiff and a spoon. I’m a peanut butter addict. I came by it naturally via TGOO.

I’ve been a munuvian for a year as of today. I guess I should go ahead and download my old blogger posts over here… I’ve not done that yet.

I hit 80,000 hits yesterday here at my new site. If you include my old site, I’m well over 100,000. Of course most are not readers, rather searching Google for things like “Bacon Candle” or “Boy Pee Jello”.

Summer is coming. Three more months until hurricane season. I read in my blogdaughter's post HERE that’s its tornado season now. Holy crap. That would scare the stew out of me. Tornados terrify me. And for any of you ‘cane country folks who agree with me that tornados are really really scary, feel free to tell her in her comments as she thinks hurricanes are scarier!

End of March I’m taking the boys camping… on an island… with our Cub Scout Pack. Just me and my three boys. It’s more primitive than before… the last site had running water and electricity at every site. This one has a grill, BYOC (Bring your own Charcoal). Great. I’m already starting to reverberate at the thought. I’m not sure what makes me more nervous, packing the four of us, meal planning, getting us to the island (boat only), or pitching camp with three boys, including setting up that 8 man tent. For some reason I can’t get excited about it… I keep thinking, "Blog fodder. My life is blog fodder..."

I still have a gut I need to get rid of. Fifteen more pounds to go. BTW, I just read in one of my history books that when the Romans defeated Boudica, her followers "were crucified for mile after mile, their bodies left to rot, carrion, unburied if not unmourned reminders of the price of armed resistance". Ouch!

Try a tornado during a hurricane. Wilma sent one spinning our way down here in Lake Worth.

Peanut Island I am guessing? As long as it is just for a day or so you guys will be fine. After all, it's just like the aftermath of a hurricane, only the saltwater is relatively pretty warm! The joke around our house during the aftermaths over the past couple of years has been "I can't believe I used to spend 40 bucks a night to live like this!"

Good luck.

Denny- I have no idea from where this 15 pounds will come! You looked GREAT in Tennessee and your flannel shirt hung on you nicely!

As for the Romans... yeah, those Romans never do anything in a small way. Blech.

Annie- 3 days. 2 nights. Blech. I'm in West Palm. We had a couple tornados spawned in my neighborhood during Wilma. But still... those BIG ones they get in tornado alley... Holy crap.

Congratulations on your year! Wow, I wonder what it is about the Spring, that makes people think..."I should write this shit down".

I am requesting that you put the puke post up, oh, the one where you explain how tall your bed is?

I hope that narrows it down for you. I am sure you have at least 10 puke storis on here.

Camping is fun! Peeing in the woods is fun! Just keep telling yourself that and it will come true. :-)

God i'm so not ready for hurricane season. Perhaps I'll keep my 15 lb. hump to live off of in case of hurricane.

Congratulations on one year!

100,000 visitors??? I just hit 2,000 *sigh*

I suggest watching CANOE TRIP before you go camping. I thought it hilarious...and it might give your guys something to 'shoot for.' haha

And yes, I will still take a tornado over a hurricane any day! :)

80,000. WOW that is great. Looks like I will hit the 50,000 mark Sunday or Monday. This is since the 24th of July. But like you say, a lot of it is google searchs.

Just take lots of spam on that camping trip and a big box of crackers and a jar of Jiff.

I actually saw the history channel Boudicca presentation. Channel surfing. It was either tht or Shanghi Noon. :) It was a good presentation. But then, I'm a history nerd. :)
