When in doubt, use bullets. The punctuation, not the things used to kill people.

I can’t think of anything interesting, witty or thought-provoking to write about today.  Not that what I write about usually is any of those things.  But, especially today.

When I can’t think of things that are interesting, witty or thought-provoking to write, I do what any good blogger does.  I use a bulleted list and practice my linky-skillz.

  • Ever since I posted the 50 things about me, I’ve been trying to think of another 50.  I’ve come up with the following: 51. I sleep with my feet hanging off the end of the bed.  It drives JR crazy because that means I’m further (farther?  I can never remember) down and pulling the blanket with me.  52.  Every single guy I dated before JR was a drummer.  I was sure I would marry a drummer.  Instead, I married someone who CAN’T drum at all. 
  • Wow.  Only two.  That sucks.
  • I just (well, it took me 3 days at work) read all of Casey’s archives.  She really is as funny as they say.
  • I’m a wanna-be blogger.  I know about all the technology and real bloggers use, but I’m just not there yet.  What puts me on that next level?  You know, the one where I would feel comfortable going to Blogher.
  • This made me spit out the water I was drinking just now.  And since I’m not supposed to be reading blogs at work, I had to pretend that I just read something -really- funny on the install quote I’m working on.  That’s hard.
  • Claire got new sunglasses.  They’re ADORABLE.  What’s that?  You want to see them.  Well, ok. 
  • Sunglasses

    See, I told you they’re cute.  She doesn’t like to wear them, though.  It took JR about 15 minutes to get that picture.  We put them on, she takes them off.  Over and over and over again. 

  • But it’s totally worth it for how cute they are.
  • Yeah, I really don’ t have anything to say. Maybe tomorrow…

Things that make me go nuts

Tool: “Why can’t we not be sober? I just want to start this over.”

Me: …wait.  What?!

JR: What?

Me: Why can’t we not be sober?  What does that mean?

JR: It means they want to know why they’re sober.

Me: Why can’t we….not…I don’t understand.

JR:  It’s a double negative.  It means they’re sober.

Me: I don’t understand it.  I seriously can’t wrap my mind around it.

JR:  It means they want to know why can’t they be NOT sober.  As in messed up.

Me: So they’re asking why they can’t be drunk?

JR: I don’t think they’re talking about drinking.

Me: *sigh*  That’s bad grammar.

JR:  Your family really screwed you up with this grammar thing.  When I was a kid my dad used to say, “Let’s went.” Instead of “Let’s go.”

Me: [appalled] WHY?!

JR: I don’t know.  We thought it was funny.

Me: That’s not funny at all!  It’s terrible!

JR:  I also used to read Brown Bear, Brown Bear. What do you see as “Brown Bear, Brown Bear. What does you see.

Me: *head explodes*
