Pinpricks of Randomness

Last night began a new phase in my life that I feel certain will induce a rapid slide toward my own mental illness. I found SnuggleMonkey standing by my bed in the darkness at 2:17 a.m. Yikes. There are a lot of things that cause my bones to quake from the chill of fear, but SnuggleDoofus wandering the house in the middle of the night while the rest of the house is sleeping is just a hair below Toothless Cat Burglar. You should meet her. You have no idea the damage she can do. All I can say is that I returned her to her bed and tried to fill her head with 105 reasons to never do that again. It won’t work. The mental illness is coming.

Every now and then I stumble upon a note from Mamasboy that makes me smile. A recent one that came home from church was:

I am very funny. I like jets and trains alot. I don’t like Superman.

Who knew?

I love Scholastic Book Order forms. I could read them and order from them from now until I am 94. And then at 94, I could pay $100,000 to a surrogate mother to have a brand new baby with my certifiable 67-yr-old (9th!!) husband. If I am Zsa-Zsa Gabor. Yeah, they really are. He says he’s retired. If she passes before  him, he’ll raise the baby. And unless he dies this afternoon, I think it’s safe to bet she’ll pass before him.

I don’t know if anyone was as savvy as Miranda the Machine in my Easter Photo Contest Winner post. She noticed that you could actually see the creepy person peeking out through the Easter Bunny costume. Wish I  had noticed that. That sight was almost as frightening as Zsa-Zsa Gabor becoming a new mommy at 94 or finding ScaryPants by my bed in the dark of night. Almost, but not quite.

  1. I very nearly choked on a cheez-it when I realized you could actually see the person in the bunny costume. Oh….good times!

  2. Well I love Scholastic book order forms too, but I am not having a baby! My little auntie E. had her 87th birthday and we were talking about how old my grandma (her mom) was when she had my dad (10th child!). I am 50 now and my grandma was giving birth to little W at the young age of 47 (shoot me now)! Wonderful mother, wonderful child, but the tragic thing is there were no Scholastic forms back in 1940!

  3. For years we went to bed knowing Sammy was awake and would be up in the night. Yeah, it was scary!

    Took me a while to get the connection from Scholastic Books to Zsa Zsa but I finally got it. That’s crazy!
