How 'bout this for some randomness...I was catching up on my blog-reading the other day (always a fantastic way to spend my time, right, especially with a mile-long to-do list, but oh well) and came across this post on Ohdeedoh.
Is that not hilarious? A "poo-flinging monkey cake with spring-loaded arm which hurled Raisinets"??? What in the world?! (And how in the world, I might add.) Hmm, I guess it is just proof that there are other lovely folks out there even more quirky than me, ha! And you'd better send pics my way if any of you attempt this on your own, haha...
I think this might be my new favorite quote:
"Reality. It's so much more interesting than living happily ever after." -- Meredith, Grey's Anatomy.
True dat, Meredith, true dat.
Things I am thankful for today:
1. The plumber came to our house! We have had a drippy bathtub faucet in our hall bathroom for months now. (Yes, this is me admitting how lazy my husband and I can be, or maybe how unbelievably busy and preoccupied and forgetful we can be, depending on which way you want to look at it.) My husband finally called the plumber, and he came today and fixed it. Hallelujah! Funny thing about the plumber, he was a super nice man, but by golly, wouldn't you know that yes, he did indeed have a plumber's crack. Is that some sort of a requirement to being a plumber 'cause I'm guessing it obviously got it's name from plumbers for a reason???
2. My son was good today at school! (Yes, this is me admitting that my son has had some sort of a, um, naughty streak both at school and at church for the last few weeks, and when I say that there have been days where it just about did me in, I kid you not.) Hallelujah again! Funny thing about today -- when I picked my son up from preschool, his teacher was beaming when she told me that he was a good boy today. Immediately after she said it, another little boy across the table from my son immediately declared, "I wasn't!" It was pretty hilarious, or maybe it was more hilarious to me since it wasn't my kid for once. Ha!
And last, but not least...
3. The "best man" at our wedding was much better than this...
I saw this today over at Liz's blog. Lord, have mercy, it's pretty hilarious. My husband and I recently became directors for our church's Nearly/Newly Married Life Group (fancy new name for "Sunday School"), so things like this are especially funny to me now that I'm around newlyweds and couples in the thick of wedding planning. Of course, now that I'm an old married woman, going on 6+ years now, I can look back at this and know that, yes, although it is a pretty bad thing to have happen at a wedding, marriage is (thankfully) so much more than the wedding and all those crazy details that all of us once fretted and obsessed over as brides-to-be. This video makes me thankful for the 6 years under our belts already, thankful for having a partner who loves me even on my frumpiest, grumpiest days, and thankful for the years and adventures to come. (And okay, okay, very thankful that I didn't fall in a pool with my wedding dress on.)
