Twitter Language

I totally do not understand the Twitter language, nor do I have any real desire to learn. I figure by the time I figure it all out, Twitter will have shut it's doors and it'll just be a flash in the pan. I remember my grandmother saying something similar about the language I used in high school.  (Insert "like" into any sentence Clueless-style and you'll have a pretty good idea).

Every time I spell "their", "there" or "they're" I have to read the sentence aloud ("allowed") to make sure I have the right ( "write") on.  I'm sure my boyfriend hears some stuff that's totally out of context, but it makes sense ("scents") to me.  Seriously, how do people learn English as a second language?

Nighttime Injury

Nothing wakes you up in the middle of the night quite like catching your pinkie toe on the end of the bed on the way around in. It's amazing how quickly you can go from dead asleep to wide awake and coherent.

Grocery Shopping

I wonder if I'm the only one that likes going grocery shopping. I love the satisfaction that comes with planning the shopping trip to get great sales and coming home and organizing and putting stuff away. It cant hurt that all my favorite snack foods are restocked too.

Hand Wash?

There is no excuse for anything to be hand-wash only anymore. And of all things, a coffee mug...

For the record, if you have this one, condensation builds up between the 2 cups so after you have it for a while, you can have one of those cool water cups from the 80's. And to think, I love Cuisinart's stuff...

Snow Shopping

I should preface this by saying my area of the country has never gotten more than a foot of snow at a time in my lifetime.

What compels people to buy all the bread, milk, butter, and eggs in the store? Seriously? The two most perishable items in my fridge are eggs and milk so why do people rush out and buy all there is when there's a pretty good chance of not being able to get to the store for a day or 2 or worse, having the power go out and losing them anyway.

I can't tell you the last time I craved some french toast when it's snowing like crazy, but I bet I could go to any one of my neighbors and have all the ingredients handy.

How Peculiar

Does everyone’s mind wander like mine does? I can go from capitalism to cat breeds, to hail storms all in a few seconds. Is that normal?
