Randomness


Because Puffs (with lotion) are my best friend.  And because I've emptied a bottle of Nyquil as of late.  I'm sharing randomness.  Not outfits.

Random #1.......

That, my friends, is a '79 Mercury Zephyr.   My first car. 

I can sum my feelings for it up in one word:  HATE.

The cassette player ate tapes.  (Yes, I said cassette player.)  It died at intersections that had any sort of slope.  It was brown.  It was huge.

While I was thankful that I had a ride of my own as a 16 year old, you can be sure I didn't shed a tear when my parents sold it.

Random #2.......

Yesterday.  In Wal-Mart.  A lady, who was about four feet away, pointed at me and said to her children in a loud voice, "She looks like Whitney."

As in the actress Whitney Cummings.

I only know this because I get it a lot.  Usually from people I know.  Not from strangers who are pointing and not really talking to me but about me.

What sayeth you?

Random #3........

Winter might be having it's last hurrah this week.

Actually, I'm sort of counting on it.

That's why I went to Wal-Mart........I had to prepare for a day off!

Cookie and chili ingredients are snow day necessities.

Oh, and I was out of Nyquil.

  1. My car STILL only has a cassette player... I am stuck in the past big time! :)

    I'm also counting on the snow dump to give me a day or two off of work. I'm bringing home stuff to work on, and I definitely need to make a grocery run tonight. :)

  6. You do kind of look like her!
    I made a mad dash into over-priced Price Cutter this morning b/c it was on the way to preschool (and I felt like my time/gas were worth the extra cost). I ran around like a maniac with my two crazy kids in the hated-car-cart getting milk, bread, juice, and sandwich supplies. My oldest may have lost his shoe as I was hollering, "Get out! We're late for school! Get in the car! Just carry your shoe!" I felt like I was on a bad episode of Supermarket Sweep. So there better be snow. No ice, just a lot of snow to make it worth my efforts.

  7. I hope you feel better soon!

    Re: Whitney - eh. I can kinda sorta see it, but it wouldn't be my first thought.

    My first car was an '87 Chrysler Lebaron and it was horrid.

  18. I think the groundhog may have missed the forecast this year! Stay safe, Whitney - ha!

  19. You obviously already know, I think you look like Whitney. How random to have someone point you out to her kids and say it loud enough for you to hear but not in any sort of a communicative way with you. Your first car story is hilarious! Feel better and I hope you get that snow day!

  20. Oh my gosh! Total doppelgänger!!! You sassy thing! :)

  21. I never thought about it before, but you do look like Whitney! Too bad that lady at Wal-Mart couldn't be a little more polite about it. Some people have no self-awareness.
