Random Tuesday Thoughts, Winter Edition

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.

Happy Groundhog's Day everyone!  Surprise, surprise!  Six more weeks of winter!  I knew that.  All I had to do was look out my window and see the gray icky clouds that seems to be holding snow to know winter was still upon us.

And speaking of Groundhog Day, those idiots at PETA want to replace our beloved Punxatawny Phil with a robotic groundhog.  Makes me want to throw cow blood all over them.

Do PETA people wear leather belts, leather (or suede) shoes, carry leather handbags?  I bet they do, bunch of hypocrits.

PETA = People Eating Tasty Animals

Yesterday I got a flat tire.  Balls!  Got it changed with the little donut tire I have for a spare. (I love AAA)   Dropped the car off at Sears (it's in the same mall where i work... convenient!).  Little while later I sneak over to see how much they are going to soak me and to see if they'll pro-rate the new tire because the old tire wasn't that old and I discover that they REPAIRED the tire.... and it was FREE!!!!  YAHOO!!!!  Frankly, I didn't think Sears Tire Salesmen were allowed to repair tires... I thought their job was to sell sell sell!  He did, of course, try to sell me a set of 4 brand new tires.  Uh.... no.  Thanks for the freebie!  Cya!

I am so far behind on my blog reading.  I feel like I might never catch up.  When John is here, I can't spend hours here like I can when I'm home alone.  I suppose I could, but that would be rude.  Now I'm working 2 doubles this week and I'm working on my day off.  I'm not ignoring y'all, I promise!

My kid is coming home next weekend for the weekend.  She's has a ride as far as Harrisburg, which is 90 minutes to 2 hours away (depending on traffic).  I have to pick her up Friday night and bring her back to Harrisburg on Sunday.  At least I don't have the 4.5 hour drive each way!  Her Dad is supposed to get her yet another car soon. 

I realized I've made the trip to her college 5 times since December 2008.  Her Dad?  Once.... twice if you count the summer of 2008 when he took her there to check it out.

I loves my new DVR!!  It's all ready to record LOST and Biggest Loser, since I have to work a double today and will miss both shows.     AND my OnDemand works for the first time since last summer AND I got HBO, Showtime and Starz again!  At least for the next 6 months until this promotion runs out.

Am I the only one who has to keep going back to edit a post that has already been posted because I keep finding typos and stuff?

I think I'm running out of randomness.  Until next time, folkses!

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!  And you can vote more than once!  As a matter of fact, you can vote once a day!  Last time I checked she was ranked #7!  Simply click here to go to the site.  And check out her blog!  You won't be sorry!!

I'm thinking a robot could give us some good news.

Have a great Tuesday!

PETA = People Eating Tasty Animals?

Now what would be fantastic is for someone to make a spoof website for PETA and explain that is what it stands for.

Anyway, I'm off to edit I mean read about PETA on wikipedia...bwhwhahahaha

A free tire job. Cool!

I know what you mean about PETA. They are fanatics. Robots??? You gotta be freaking kidding me! And in the name of political correctness, they will probably give in and do it too.

A new DVR. I envy you.

Heather said...

Those PETA folks have some really strange ideas. It's hard to believe that some people actually take them serious.
Congrats on the free tire repair.
I get behind all the time, I try not to get on the computer when hubby is home.
Lets hope this "new" car will be better than the last.
I go back and edit all the time. Either I found a typo or I forgot to add something.

Don't know if there is some activist group for the rights of robots, but they will be the next ones offended.

Thanks for your randomness,

Margaret aka: Fact Woman said...

A DVR is a great invention isn't it. I can't wait for Lost tonight!!!
LOL at your PETA definition.

Brian Miller said...

nice on the free repair and the dau coming home this weekend! what about someone dressed up in a groundhog costume? lol. wacky!

Garret said...

I go back and edit my stuff too. LOL.

Pseudo said...

Great random Joanie! We have had nails taken out of tires for free on several occasions. Sears is good about that.

Maureen@IslandRoar said...

A robotic groundhog??? Give me a break! Yay for your tire. And that's a lot of driving, even with the ride to Harrisburg. I hear you about your ex. It's all us, all parenting, all the time...

linlah said...

I gave up on going back to edit. It's already out there and people have already seen it messed up and I'm okay with that.
