Thursday This n That

It's February.  I suppose I ought to change my calendar.

I've had the same song stuck in my head for DAYS, and it's making me crazypants.  I won't mention the title here because I don't want to see this and get it started again.  You know, in the off chance I ever get it stopped.  I keep trying to replace it with other songs and that works for a while.  Then next thing I know, it's there again.  Arrgghh.

What's up pussycat? Meow, meow, meow.

Okay, now that that's over for a while, maybe I can think about other stuff.  Let's see...

Hubs and I were watching See No Evil last night when the lead-in showed a rabbit underneath a car and we were both like 'Bunny!'  Then we started joking about how traumatic it must've been for the rabbit and now it's got to be in the Rabbit Protection Program.  We were cracking each other up.  By the way, the bunny never figured into the murder.  Talk about 'gun on the mantel'.  ;o)

By the way, we each shout out animal names as we see them.  So, if one of us is by a window and sees a rabbit, the viewer will shout 'Bunny'.  Most often, though, it's 'Deer'.  Yesterday, we both happened to look out the front window as a big red-shouldered hawk was flying through and we both yelled 'Hawk' at the same time.  Yep, we're weird.

I bought a couple pairs of thermal socks last year.  Women's thermal socks.  They never fit right and they're actually kind of nubby, so they hurt to walk on.  But I paid good money for them and I am going to wear them, goddamnit.  (No, I couldn't take them back.  I washed them before I discovered they were foot torture devices.)  Except this morning the pair was hurting so bad while I was standing in the kitchen, I took them off and threw them away, crying "Socks shouldn't hurt!  Why am I wearing socks that hurt me?!"  The other pair will get thrown out the next time I'm by my sock drawer.  I now have soft, fluffy thermal socks on.  Men's thermal socks because, even though they're too big, they don't hurt me.

I have to wear thermal socks pretty much all winter because I get really cold feet.  Sometimes it's hard to cram on shoes because my socks are so fat.  But they're warm, so I live with it.  If I had all the money in the world, I'd have 'winter shoes' a half size larger than 'rest of the year shoes', just for the socks. 

Okay, I think that's quite enough out of me.  What's on your radar today?

  1. Oh. Yeah. Calendar page turning. I should do that too.

    I have "thermal" houseshoes with rubber souls so I can wear fluffy socks too. Wait...isn't that a Beatles' album?

    We point out hawks to each other. Not so much other animals unless they are darting across the road in front of our vehicle.

    Damn! A B-52 just flew over at low level, enroute to Tinker AFB. My windows are still rattling!

    We have new fiber optic internet and TV. I'm excited. LG took the cable boxes back to our former cable company yesterday. He was gone so long I wondered if I needed to scrounge up bail money for him. When he finally got home, he said the sales rep sicced the asst. manager who sicced the manager on him, trying to convince him to stay with the cable company. He said it was worse than trying to buy a car.

    Pussycat, pussycat, I love you, yes I do...Hey, macarena!

    I'm procrastinating. And want a nap. And I need to go put the roast in the slowcooker for dinner tonight. I should do that and then write some new words because I've only managed about 300 today. Grrr.

    And on that note, I intend to fly under the radar...
