Random Tuesday – Big birds, naughty devices, weird neighbors, etc
I think I blogged about this bird that sounded super high pitched outside my window and I thought it was a regular old bird but it turns out it’s huge – some kind of hawk I thought. Well today I checked it out and I am pretty sure it’s a pair of osprey. I know now that the sound is accurate for one because we went to that Birds of Prey center. You learn something new every day!
Since when did Spencer’s turn into a porn store? You know that shop in the mall? The one with all that kitchy stuff – shot glasses and pop cultures tees, etc? I used to love going in there when I was young and hadn’t gone in in a while. When Ash and I walked the mall a few weeks ago we popped in and the whole back wall is comprised of vibrators, etc. Kind of crazy, if you ask me. I started thinking about my daughter being, like, 16 and walking in there. ::shudder:: I know they have to grow up sometime, but still. Kind of reminds me of when I was a college freshmen and we’d go to the porn store, the one where you had to show ID and they had frosted windows. I’d always buy a Playgirl because my roommates thought it was super risque and I loved shock value. LOL. Oh, adolescence.
I facebooked about this yesterday but I finally got around to watching a Rainbow Loom youtube tutorial because I can’t fricken’ figure that thing out. I was unnerved by the fact that the girl doing it might have been eight years old. Funny how we lose certain abilities as we get older, right? I used to be so artsy and crafty!
I love the Spurs and have for some time so I find it weird and amusing that the fanfare for their win is kind of hush hush. I mean, usually people go nuts about the winner of the NBA championship. It could be because the people who go nuts are usually the kind of fans that like the Heat: fairweather and frontrunners. I don’t mean every fan, but a good deal of them. I also think it’s a lot less because they didn’t drag it out to seven games. It wasn’t a nail biter; the Spurs handled the Heat. But I am glad for them. I don’t like teams that always win so this was a nice way to end the season.
Speaking of seasons ending, the season finale of Game of Thrones was insane! But this is a spoiler-free zone so I will leave it at that.
Speaking of Game of Thrones, we saw someone at Epcot on Saturday who looks almost identical to Sansa Stark. It was uncanny.
I am completely baffled by these new neighbors. Last weekend, before we went on vacation, I said hello to the old guy in the backyard and he finally greeted me, though did not seem interested in having any further conversation. He and his son got out the lawn mower, cut one swatch of grass diagonally in the yard, and gave up. When we got home yesterday, it appears they have moved nothing else in and neither have they cut their grass. Weird, right?
