Random Tuesday Thoughts

It's Tuesday!!  Let's get ready to Random!!!!

We're expecting Mother Nature to dump some white stuff on us today, a lot of it from what the newscasters are terrorizing us with.  I just really really really hope it doesn't start until , like, dinnertime.  I am terrified to drive in the snow!  We have the snowstorm that's moving up the east coast and we have the snowstorm moving eastward across from the Midwest.  They plan to rendezvous right smack in the mid-Atlantic states aka Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.  Expected snowfall?  Anywhere from 4 to 12 inches.  

Today is my first day back to work since my staycation.  I'm sad.  I want to still be on vacation or staycation.  Especially with this storm approaching.  I wouldn't have minded if it dumped a bunch of stuff while I was off work for the week.  I wasn't going anywhere anyway!

I'm hooked on my Keurig!  I've been scanning the grocery stores in search of teas for the Keurig to no avail.  I need to place an order with the company.  I've got lots and lots of coffee.  They're easy to find in the stores.
The order will have to wait though, because, like I said, I'm broke! 

Sometimes not being rich sucks.  I'm not really poor, but there ain't a lotta bucks left over at the end of the month.  That's what I miss about being married.  I had money when I was married.  Don't miss him... just the perks.

I'm all caught up on the seasons of NCIS.  Just waiting for Season 8 to be available on Netflix.  In the meantime, I'll be watching Northern Exposure.  

Thanks to Rene@ Not The Rockefellers and  Mary @ Unmitigated Me for the advice on the potassium for my restless legs!  Got the pills, got bananas.  

I just realized half of what I had on this post I said last Tuesday, so I deleted it.  So now I'm out of random.

Seems you and I have the same feelings for snow. I could do without. I have a Tassimo (similar to a Keurig) and really like it. Just ordered milk chocolate for it off ebay.
Happy RTT.

Talk about coincidence. I too am hooked on those k-cups only the coffee. We always order it on line through coffee for
The way you feel about driving in the snow is the way I feel about driving in the rain. Hope you have an easy drive and a wonderful day.

I love Netflix. It streams perfectly with no hiccups through my PS3.

Now we're watching the series of Farscape.

You're right that sometimes not being rich sucks.

Joanie said...

@Garret, I don't have any gaming systems to stream Netflix through. Maybe my favorite son will give me one of his systems to use for Netflix.

I like the coffees, too, but they're easy to find. The teas are more difficult, or I can only find Earl Grey and English Breakfast. I want to try the hot cocoa, too.

Go to and they have a webpage that shows you all the units (from TV's to DVD players) that are Netflix ready. Some are cheap. Instant viewing is unlimited with Netflix.

When I think of random I sometimes put it in my cell phone because I have the memory of a gnat and I don't want to end up stuck but because I have the memory of a gnat, I forget if I already used what I put in my phone because I never delete anything.

Netflix makes it easy to get hooked on many shows. It's a love hate kind of relationship.

The Crazy Coxes said...

Oh, I'm sorry you do't love the snow. Send it my way!!! we haven't gotten our fair share this winter.

I'm glad you had a fabulous staycation. it's nice to have some downtime.

We're getting the white stuff today too, but thankfully I'm off for two days and it should be gone before I go back. Good luck.

Stacy Uncorked said...

You can send any unwanted snow our way - Princess Nagger really wants a Snow Day! ;)

We love our Keurig, too - I haven't tried their teas in it yet, I might have to follow your lead! :)

RTT: FedEx, Renovations, Snow

slommler said...

I love my Keurig too!! Haven't looked for teas...hmmm!!
Guess I will have to do that!

Mama Badger said...

I always think Keurig tea tastes kind of icky. Before you order from them, though, shop Amazon. Sometimes they have much better deals.

I must now go find some Northern Exposure. I completely forgot about that show! We loved it in college. Wait, did I just date myself. Darn.

Run DMT said...

I've lived in Florida almost my entire life. I don't think I would ever leave my house if I had to drive in snow.

I've always wanted to try those Keurig thingies, but I'm afraid I'll become an addict.

Sprite's Keeper said...

I hope you don't get dumped on. And I hope you get your tea! I've tried the Keurig tea, delish!

Jingle said...

First time noticing your prompt,
linked in one of my poems, hope that you like it.

Brian Miller said...

tattytiara said...

I am definitely looking forward to the day when I just buy what I need without even looking at the price!

Joanna Jenkins said...

Hoping the snow isn't as bad as expected. It's been a rough winer and it's only December.
Hang in there, jj

Joanie said...

um, Joanna? It's January. just sayin'. ;)

And it's ok. I'm off work on Wednesday, so I don't have to leave the house!

Brian and Jen, we can get dumped on! The 2 brothers across the street are itching to make some money on Wednesday when they shovel me out!
