Random Tuesday – Oh it’s random all right

I despise you, Tuesday, but let’s get random!




  • I ordered that new eggs Benedict sammich from Dunkin Donuts this morning and I am shocked I don’t like it. Eggs Benedict is one of my all-time favorite breakfast foods. But this sandwich is just so-so. Also, their latte machine was broken so I had to go to Starbucks anyway. Oh, hello Tuesday, you sick bastard.
  • Elliot went back to school after 10 days. I remember being a kid and loving breaks but being ready to go back. As a parent, I think that’s just too long. LOL. I don’t think that makes me bad; I just know how my kids thrive on routine and how they react to being off of it.
  • Though it is Tuesday, I have a confession: I didn’t work out yesterday. Having Elliot here and a looong busy day at work, by the time it was, oh, 8:30, I’d drifted off on the couch while watching Bones. (Dammit, that makes two weeks in a row I have missed the majority of.)
  • I also slept funky so my right shoulder and side of my neck are all jacked up.
  • I always found it funny how people say they have a crick in their neck. But to me, this is a crick:Toshiba Exif JPEG
  • I think it might be a northern thing. The people I knew in western New York state always called the water near the country farmhouse a crick. I spent a lot of vacations with my feet in that cool water, searching for smooth stones and finding crawfish hear and there. Also, some people call those crawdads or crayfish. Language is so cool, isn’t it?
  • Sorry, that was my English nerd speaking there.
  • I know four people who have birthdays today and, as I have mentioned, mine is right around the corner. Are we doing anything special? Probably not. Elliot has baseball practice on Thursday and of course, I have to work out.
  • I secretly hope Ash at least plans to take care of dinner that night.
  • BG has been “talking” a lot lately. When she’s in a really babbly mood, she’ll say “da da”, “ba ba”, and a version of
    “ma”. But the word she says a lot is something like, “Ah da” but she ALWAYS looks right at Ash when she says it so, there you go; first word =  dada.
  • As I lay down in bed last night, I had this sudden realization that I have a MILLION things to do and my heart started beating rapidly and I kind of freaked out for maybe three seconds. Then I just took it in stride and said to myself, “Self, you got this. It’ll all get done.” And I didn’t even really have to force that. Maybe I am getting the hang of this adult/parenting thing. Only took me until 35 but hey, at least I’m improving!

  1. I was wondering how those new Eggs Benedict sandwiches were, I keep seeing advertisements for them and Eggs Benedict are one of my most favorite breakfasts rarely indulged. Thanks for saving me the trouble on finding out they’re so-so. 🙂

  2. Dunkin Donuts should be about donuts not breakfast sandwiches…just saying is all. Dunkin Donuts have really fallen by the way with their donuts. They are no where as good as they were 25 years ago. What a huge disappointment they are! The only thing good I can say is they do have good regular coffee. That’s it.

    I use to live by a crick and get cricks in my neck all the time. lol I still say this, really I do. I grew up in southern WV after all, but you’ll find folks in East Tennessee who have similar usage of words. It’s just ole country saying is all. You can take the girl out of the country, but you can’t take the country out of the girl and this is definitely true!

    Happy random Tuesday!
