Ten Random Thoughts From the Week

top-ten-tuesday    It has been quite some time since I did a Top Ten Tuesday and today seems as good a day as any. Note: Random doesn’t even begin to cover this list.

  1. I had a caramel apple martini tonight. I don’t normally do martinis but is was on special and was billed to taste like caramel apples. It did. Someone is a genius.
  2. I still miss Lost. Anyone else? And as odd as this might sound I have found a show that is filling my Lost hole. Who is watching “Once Upon a Time” on Sunday nights. It makes me so very happy.
  3. Chris Brown performed on the American Music Awards last night. He sings good and dances good, but will we ever be able to watch him and not think about Rhianna. My guess is no.
  4. That Target ad woman is creepy. CREEPY. And I am so very annoyed with Target for opening on Thanksgiving. I want to organize a massive protest but then I remembered we needed new pillows and I hate Wal-Mart. Dang it Target. Why can’t I quit you??
  5. Does anyone else use the Facebook birthday reminders as a way to unfriend people. “Oh hi, I forgot we were friends. Who are you again? Unfriend.” No? Just me? Never mind. What kind of soulless person would unfriend someone on their birthday!!!!
  6. I still haven’t bought a turkey. Pretty sure that isn’t good.
  7. I think I am not watching Survivor anymore. I have only missed a few seasons since it started. I am kind of sad about this turn of events, but it just isn’t holding my attention anymore. And this season has Ozzy in it. So that is just sad. Anyone else still watching?
  8. My book club just finished reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and everyone should read it. It is a really powerful look into history and medical ethics. Actually that sounds a little boring, but this book is not. It is a must read.
  9. I am not a big fan of Thanksgiving food. Don’t love pumpkin flavored stuff, not a fan of turkey, and that green bean casserole is just foul. but I do love me some mashed potatoes. Although call me crazy I don’t want it with gravy. I like mine mixed with corn. Anyone else?
  10. I love this picture so very much. I try not to talk politics around these parts, but oh man do I love this picture.

    YES mashed potato and corn is the BEST THING EVER

  2. SO mad about Target opening at midnight! There is a petition somewhere…change.org or something like that. But since I live in the ONLY state without a Target, I guess it doesn’t matter. Although I need those dumb pillows, too!
    And I LOVE the picture at the end. That needs to be spread around!

  6. I am nit much of a maritini drinker, either, but I can definitely get in board with that one! As for Target, the commercials bug the boogers out of me, and, if it wasn’t for my complete dislike for Walmart, I would stage a protest as well. I like the gravy, but I still mix in the corn. I could make an entire meal out of mash potatoes, corn, and jellied cranberry sauce, preferably the kind the have the can lines on it still. Lastly, I absolutely LOVE that picture and plan on sharing it.

  7. It’s all about the mashed potatoes and stuffing/dressing for me. I can do without the turkey. I can certainly do without the stuffing IN the turkey. I can easily do without gravy. The mashed potatoes should be so good you don’t need gravy (in other words, should have cream cheese in them)! corn in the mashed potatoes would be an added bonus. And no matter how hard I try, I prefer the cranberry sauce from the can. without chunks.
    And why I’m rambling on I’ll never know! When all I wanted to do was thank you for the book recommend. I’m adding it to my list, thanks!

  8. Ok – so this list totally makes me love you more!! ;) Although I did not get into Lost while it was actually airing, it does make a regular appearance in my Netflix viewing! Lol And that picture is just the absolute BOMB. (Spoken like a true Army wife, I guess…) Happy Thanksgiving! Hope your turkey thaws in time!!

  10. The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is definitely a must read. It goes much deeper than medical ethics. The author does a great job of telling the story and explaining the science.
