A Bunch of Randomness For Your Enjoyment

Well, technically it’s for your enjoyment AND my being able to fulfill my commitment to NaBloPoMoFo in a hurry today, since I have very little time.

Ready? Here we go.

1. I am driving a Chevy Suburban for the next week (and will be reviewing it, of course). It is HUGE. I have to admit, I feel like a tough girl when I’m behind the wheel. Weird, I know.

2. I get to meet my buddy John Cave Osborne for coffee tomorrow. He hates when I call him a mentor (even though he is), but I’m pretty sure he doesn’t mind when I call him a friend (because he is). Whether we have an in-person pow-wow or a phone chat, I feel inspired and motivated afterwards, and often at peace because he has helped me make sense out of something that may have been a little abstract.

3. D is home from school for the week. I came home from Zumba yesterday and found an empty house: he had taken Roxie for a 40-minute walk and, when he got home, asked me what else he could do to help. JIM AND I RAISED THIS GUY. So blessed.

4. Over the summer, my friend Jenn bought me a dollar bill with a portrait of William and Kate where George Washington normally is. I keep it in its protective plastic envelope in my wallet and smile whenever I see it.

5. To be clear, my smile is 85% because Jenn bought it for me and 15% because of my obsession with the British royals.

6. Okay, the split might be 75/25. Or maybe 50/50. Don’t tell Jenn.

7. Did you know I have a blog on Tumblr, too? It’s called “Suburb Scraw”, and its tagline is “Keeping it Short”. I love it because I can put any random pop culture stuff or super-short stories on there, things that I wouldn’t necessarily put here. For example, yesterday I put up a really cool video of two Chicago news anchors doing something really cute during the commercial break, and the day before I put up a video of a little girl whose attitude reminds me of my own. Click here to check it out, and if you have a Tumblr that I don’t already follow, leave the link in comments!

8. I have been trying to teach Roxie how to sing. It’s not going well.

    NaNoMoBloPo what? Share the acronym please… or are you making it up?

    So what do you think of the Suburban? Sorry I didn’t get to leave you a treat. People ate ALL my blueberry cherry crisps. I was trying to save one for you. Enjoy that rolling hot spot!

      Seriously? You must live under a rock. 🙂
      National Blog Posting Month! I’ve been posting every day this month: you obviously haven’t noticed. haha!

    I totally knew which little girl you were referring to–LOVE her (and you 🙂

    Mr.4444 is due for a new Suburban. However, I’ve gotten so used to not having that huge car payment! 🙁 Maybe I can talk him into a car this time.

    hahaha on the dog singing. Time for a vdeo clip, maybe?
