Random Tuesday Thoughts

On the Good Ship Lollipop...

This is what crazy recital-head mama does.  Sits daughter down for a good forty-five minutes while she tortures her with the curling iron.  She suffered two burns on the day of the recital and still got out there and danced her heart out.

Proud of the boy.  All decked out in safety patrol gear in the blue with the belt.

He didn't want his picture taken.

Anybody ever hitch a ride?  Does anyone do that anymore?  Have we all been scared off by it?

Should one use rechargeable batteries in your cordless keyboard and mouse?  What brand do you like?

Blogger is working funny for me.  I hate when I hit the return key in "Compose" and it doesn't advance.

A different way to shop for underwear.  Knicker Picker, brought to you by our flirty fun neighbors across the pond. (You might want to check this out at home.  I don't know what your work policy is for the viewing of the underwear...)

My new badge at the top is Prisoner of Summer.  Creation of Ash at Shades of Blue and Green.  We all want to be good bloggers, but sometimes being outdoors is more fun.  So, instead of apologizing, grab a badge for your blog and we will all understand your time with family and friends is time well spent.

Unfortunately, our darling son is showing signs of the preteen/teen.  Mr. Wild and I are reminded of this video every time we try to talk to him.

I am thinking about putting together an upbeat playlist and making a CD.  So far I have in mind:
I Gotta Feeling by the Black Eyed Peas
Somewhere Over the Rainbow by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole
Bubbly by Colbie Caillat
What's the Rumpus? by Gaelic Storm

Any other happy-go-lucky selections you can think of to ad?

And for your viewing pleasure, the flashmob at the beginning of Oprah's 24th season kick off.  I wonder what they'll do for the 25th kick off.  This was pretty awesome.

(flash mob = a lot of what appears to be random people starting to dance or sing in a public place.  Google it, they are pretty awesome.  I want to do a flash mob sometime.)

All right kids, click the button and let's go random!

Cute photos!

Blogger was all wonky for me yesterday giving me some error when I clicked 'New Post' and kept me out of my blog all day. I really hate it though when I'm in the middle of a post I hit the enter key and it publishes. Beyond irritating!

Blogger has been doing the same thing to me lately. The cursor doesn't move but when I type the text appears where it should. Weird.

Songs for your CD:
"I'm Yours" by Jason Mraz
"Don't Worry, Be Happy" by Bobby McFerrin.
