Random Tuesday Thoughts

It's Tuesday, and you know what that means, boys and girls!  It's time for Random Tuesday Thoughts!  Today we get to talk about all the crazy stuff that is knocking around in our brains, but not one thought is enough to make a blog post, so we get to put them all together!  Now doesn't that sound like fun?  You should try it!  Go on over to Neely's blog, grab the cute button, link up to her site and get random!!  Go on, we'll wait.

Do you know what I was doing, 3 years ago today?  Three years ago today, my very good friend, Tina and I were on a plane, winging our way to Fort Lauderdale, to board the Celebrity Cruise ship, Constellation.  We were on our way to the BEST VACATION EVER, our self-proclaimed Just Divorced Cruise!  Ten nights of laughing, drinking, soaking up rays, drinking, shopping, drinking, touring, drinking.  So so so fun!!!  sigh.  I need another one of those vacations.  Too bad I'm broke.

I have fun fun fun plans for tonight!  I'll be meeting up with a few friends from high school!  I haven't seen these ladies in 38 years!!!  (shut up, Garret.  I know you were 2 then)  Another friend from grade school/high school is also planning a get together.  I love Facebook!  Reconnecting with old friends is terrific!

Who else besides me is tired of winter?  I'm really beginning to hate cold and snow and heat bills.  Global warming my ass!

So John is very very very political.  Me?  Not so much.  OK, not at all.  He loves nothing more than discussing politics.  He dislikes Democrats and Republicans equally.  Too bad he hooked up with a broad who could care less.  The man is a die-hard Libertarian  When he starts up about politics, my eyes glaze over and I hear WAH WAH.  WAH WAH WAH  WAH.  (think the grown ups on the Peanuts cartoons)

Haiti.  Those poor folks.  I hope they get enough aid and soon.  My brother is part of a CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) group who is on standby to go and help.  John's son, who is in the Army, is also preparing to deploy for Haiti as part of a Peacekeeping Force.  Please keep them in your good thoughts.

I'm really hoping my day at work isn't like yesterday.  Yesterday,  I was making stupid little mistakes all day long.  And I was really bitchy.   Like I had a bad case of PMS, but I didn't have PMS.  Maybe I did... POST menstrual syndrome.  The good thing about that was, I was making sure everyone was doing their side work properly!  Ah, well... today is Danielle's (not my daughter) turn to be bitchy and stupid anyway.  I know because she told me, or warned me.

Well, I'm running out of random.  Cya!

psst!  I have a friend who blogs here... her name is Vodka mom. It's also the name of her blog.  Her blog is one of the funniest I've ever read! Anyway, she was nominated for the Top 50 Mommy Bloggers.  It would be really cool if you could check her out, read some of her stuff and go over to Babble and vote for her!  Last time I checked she was ranked #24!  Simply click here to go to the site.  Check out her blog!  You won't be sorry!!

I didn't do anything fun when I got divorced, well, I was actually separated for 9 years before I got a divorce because he left with "no forwarding address". FL was easier than PA to get a divorce without him being served and signing papers. I did trade in my wedding band and engagement ring for another diamond ring... I could it my ring of independence. I eventually sold that too though!

Good thoughts at the ready!
Now that John is back from his cruise, I have him planning ours in about 2 years. Woot!

Most Libertarians just need a good old slap...

I'm kidding.


I'm fed up of winter too. I'm living in denial but damn I'm cold.

Single celebrity cruise? Who was on there? Did you meet anyone cool? Blog about that? sorry new to your blog and excited about it !

Boozy Tooth said...

I remember the original details {and door photo} of your cruise post. Was that three years ago already? Girl.... time for another one pronto. Come to Jax and we'll take the Carnival Celebration on a little spin through the Bahamas. We affectionately call this little 4 day jaunt our booze cruise. So much fun.

I'm serious. Let's do it!

Joanie said...

Sorry Paul, Celebrity is the name of the cruise line, and as far as I know, there were no celebrities on board. I did blog about it, sometime last year.
Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Joanie said...

Alix, I'd love to, but there are no $$$ for cruising the Bahamas right now.

Matty said...

A cruise, you lucky gal. I've never been on one. Maybe one day.

I reconnected with some high school and college friends on Facebook a few months ago. I lost interest and closed down my site.

One of these days I'll be there when you're working. I keep missing you.

Facebook is fun. Bet you are having a great time right now.
