Random Weirdness in My Brain

  • Do you ever find yourself really pissed off when the computer tells you the password you entered is wrong? I do. I think to myself, “Look here, you stupid effing computer. I’m the one that made up that password. I know that password. Who are you to be telling me it’s wrong?” Then I enter it again, this time with no typos, and I realize that my anger may have been somewhat misplaced and perhaps just a tiny bit exaggerated for the situation.
  • Snow is totally and completely nasty awful stuff. Do NOT in the comments tell me how much you like snow. Anyone who tells me how much they like snow is liable to get a big old dump truck full of the gray slushy mess from the edge of my street dumped in their front lawn. You’re welcome.
  • I have discovered the absolutely all time best blog ever at Hyperbole and a Half. Seriously, you must go and read the blog from the beginning. It is awesome. I’m only to the early part of 2010 so far (after reading a few current entries I had to go start at the beginning and work forward due to its enormous awesomeness), but trust me it is well worth reading. Go! Read! But only after you finish reading my poor measly excuse for a blog entry here.
  • I am particularly not looking forward to the dreaded V-word this year. No, I do not want to be your V-word nor is there anyone I wish to ask to be my V-word. And yes, I do find it necessary to call it the V-word. It is offensive to me, every bit as offensive as some of those other letter-words out there.
  • While at lunch today, a fairly tall man (maybe 6’4” or so) walked past me, and I had a visceral reaction to him that surprised me. I never realized just how physically attracted I am to really tall guys in general, but as I thought about it I realized that I am. I am really attracted to tall guys, and by tall I mean somewhere around 6’2” and taller. Tall guys are just really very physically attractive and provoke something of a physical response in me that tells me my inner self thinks tall guys would be great with whom to procreate. No wonder I like basketball so much. It’s such a stimulating game.
  • I’m pretty sure this blog entry could win the award for most superlatives ever used in one blog entry. Maybe not, but I’m pretty sure.
  • Now that I’m in charge of a major committee at my church (yeah, just happened in the last few weeks) I’m feeling a little less on-the-outside-looking-in than I have in the past, particularly since it was not a position I sought but rather one for which the pastor recommended me. She thought I would do well because it is an area where she could see that I have a passion, and I agree with her!
  • W will be going into the hospital again in a little more than a week for another surgery. This one is not major and is for a niggling problem that has been there for a couple of years, but the surgeon didn’t want to operate until he (W not the surgeon) was in better health. Now he is in his best health in years so it’s time to take care of this issue. I’m not saying what it is because I don’t him to go Googling the issue and finding this. Anyway, he’ll be in the hospital for a few days, and I will have the house to myself (well, except N and TS2 will be there; maybe if I chloroform them, tie them up, and stick them in the little closet under the stairs for those few days. No? Not a good idea? Really? Darn. I’m really pretty much in one of my anti-social moods right now. Can you tell?).
  • My birthday is only a little more than two months away. I’m working on the plans for the party. Are any of my blogger buddies coming? I’m holding it in Champaign, IL, exact venue still to be determined (my budget and I are not exactly in agreement at this point), but I’ve narrowed it down to a handful of possibilities. It’s the same weekend as the IL Marathon in case that’s something you’re interested in. You could totally run the marathon (or half marathon) earlier in the day then party all night with me! (Which of course made me starting singing this song in my head – “I wanna rock and roll all night. . . and party every day!” – which then led me to thinking how sad it is that Guitar Hero is no more and how 500 people are losing their jobs just because of that and how can one video game result in employment for 500 people? Yeah, that’s indicative of the random meanderings my mind is doing this afternoon. It isn’t pretty.)
  • And what would a winter post be without a mention of my beloved Illini?  Yes, they are still beloved in spite of their erratic performance through the season.  When they are on, they are unbeatable.  When they are off, a good high school team could beat them.  Unfortunately, you just never know which team you're going to get for any given game.  If it weren't for the possibility of incarceration for being a scary and threatening stalker, I might just head down to Ubben for practice and try to knock some sense into them.  (Of course, they're all so tall they would probably just charm me right out of frustration and anger in no time and I'd be all nicey nice to them and that wouldn't accomplish anything and so I guess it's better if I just stay home and mind my own business.)
  • In addition to winning Most Superlatives I believe this post is also eligible for Most Run On Sentences, and an honorable mention for Best Use of Parentheses in a Blog Post.  I'm truly honored to be recognized for so many fine achievements.
