Sunday Thoughts of Varying Importance

January 22, 2012
  • We now have six fish and a marine snail named Nollid.  Our six fish are sail fin mollies.  Two are parents and the remainder are, well, offspring.  Within 2 days of the Blessed Event, in which tiny fish close to the size of a grain of rice began hiding in the foliage the male, Macho, is racing around chasing Nelly, obviously the female.  And he’s waving All His Fins wildly and basically looking ridiculous to us and, apparently pretty sexy to Nelly.  Which leads me to this observation, which took place while we, as a family, gathered around the aquarium to observe the mating habits of the sail fin molly.   There’s a reason there’s no fish porn.  Seriously, that dude is FAST!!!
  • When you clip the  nails of your tiny dog, they are sharp.  Encouraging him to jump on you will result in scratches.   In other news, water is wet.
  • I have discovered Pinterest.  There are a lot of really dumb things on the interwebs, I thank Pinterest for consolidating those things into a single space so I can enjoy them without expending Any Effort Whatsoever finding these things on my own.  Now if I could just figure out how to remember to DE-select “upload to Facebook”.
  • Pictures of Voldemort with random captions are funny.  Every time.
  • Pneumonia takes freaking forever to recover from and I am sick of coughing.
  • Facebook is an introverts dream relationship. I put out there what I want, I don’t have to”really” talk to people but they all feel like they “know me” and we have “spent time together”.
  • I (heart) Pandora. Especially fond of the Bach station and the Adele Station…  Also kinda  a big fan of Sinatra…  And throw in a bit of Daft Punk for funsies. It’s cool.  I don’t get Spotify though.  Haven’t tried very hard, so we will call that an uneducated opinion.
  • I schedule meetings and hope no one shows up…
  • My dream book club is to read through the newest biography of Dietrich Bonhoeffer and intersperse his writings at the points in his life where they were written.  I wonder if I could do something like that on the internet as a discussion group, where you don’t even have to leave your house…  I like!!
  • Turd frosting and frosting turds are NOT the same thing and the phrases are not to be used interchangeably.
  • I still don’t have enough lung capacity to sing well.  This frustrates me.
  • People who bail irritate me. People who bail and assume everyone else will cover for them make me bonkers.  People who bail, assume everyone else will cover for them and don’t consider the impact the decision makes on others are my least fave.
  • Stupid is the least sexy thing I know.

And that’s all I got today… Happy Sunday!!!

  • Giraffe

    Turd frosting and frosting turds are NOT the same thing and the phrases are not to be used interchangeably

    Now that has me baffled.

  • Two are parents and the remainder are, well, offspring.

    For now. In a short time, the others will be parents too. Another thing about fish is that they have no impulse control and no pharmacy. They really do have a limited number of options to fill their day.

  • I am totally IN on the Bonhoeffer club! Make it happen…I think you could pull off a virtual discussion on this–do let me know if this happens. 😉
