RTT: "I fight gangs for local charities and stuff"

 AHH Tuesday... quickly becoming my favorite day of the week. I can't imagine why. This is what, the 12th week of Keely's hiatus? It has reached epic proportions. I fear she has become consumed in this malevolent thing called work. Anyone feel like going to rescue her?? I totally would, were I closer. Anyway... let's keep this random going on. Forward ho!

Don't forget to link up at the bottom of this post if you're participating in RTT and/or over at Stacy Uncorked. Stacy is keeping the random rebellion alive, with wine! 
  • "The Last Song" was a big disappointment. Miley Cyrus isn't very good at acting if you ask my opinion. 
  •  Honey Smacks aren't as gross as I remember them being when I was little. Especially since I can buy the name-brand ones now. LOL.
  •  I finally finished My Booky Wook by Russell Brand. It really is like reading a book written by a drugged-out lunatic, but there you have it. It was quite interesting and I still like him, but it helps to know why he is the way he is. Haha.
  • I love The Princess Bride.

    "Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die."- Inigio Montoya
    Inigo Montoya: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to kill you.
    Man in Black: You seem a decent fellow. I hate to die.

  • I'm now reading Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. I really like it and can't believe I haven't read it before. I think next, I'll try to read either Jane Eyre or Anna Karenina sine they are both free to download on my Kindle for Android. {That's on my phone y'all!}
  • I nearly drowned myself yesterday. I jumped in the pool with Jeremy {we held hands and it appeared to be a suicide pact} and when I came up, I quit holding my nose and immediately I sank back under {of course} and forgot to kick. Hence, I swallowed a mouthful of {most likely tainted} pool water and it went up my nose as well. 
  • I jumped back in a few minutes later in order to save face and to prove I wasn't afraid. That time I hit the bottom with my right foot and came up "Oww-ing". I blame Jeremy.
  • Sabrina went to the groomers yesterday. She is so skinny-looking and prettiful. :)
  • Just got side-tracked on Facebook for thirty minutes...jeez. 
  • J is leaving this Friday for his WLC {Warrior Leader Course} in Mississippi. He won't be home until the 2nd. :( Booo! Our anniversary is the 29th. *sigh*
  • Any ideas on what to get J for our 3rd anniversary?? This year, the traditional gift is leather, but he doesn't want a new wallet or anything. And he has plenty of belts. So, I'm thinking of not bothering with the leather part. What are some other gift ideas?? 
  • My goal for the length of Jeremy's absence is to finish entering all the books I have logged in my notebook into Goodreads. It's a lot easier to keep up with all the books I've read and how many times I've read them. 
  • I also need to find a job, so I'll be filling out as many applications as I can. I'd love to get into some program to help pay for college online classes, but it makes me nervous just thinking about it.
  • I hope to finish three paintings, so we can finally have something on the wall above the couch. How many weeks have I been saying that?? The pool is just so much more fun...
  • My neighbor was quite rude to me yesterday...
  • I got up at 5:30 yesterday! Can you believe it?? My shoulder was still killing me and it felt like something was biting the back of my leg, but when I went to look, there was nothing there. So, I just got up. Sabrina was not thrilled about that, she stayed in bed until I told her I was going outside. Then, she got up and went. When we got outside, she didn't want to go potty because the grass was wet with dew. Haha. 
  • Happy 236th Birthday to the Army.
  • The Army announced that the patrol cap will replace the black wool beret as the default headgear for the Army combat uniform. Finally! I know J and the rest of his unit hate wearing that hot beret all the time and having to carry around the beret and the cap. The Army also is making the Velcro optional. Soldiers can choose to sew on their name tapes, rank and service tapes instead of using the Velcro. 
  • I'm all for the no Velcro. Do you know how many pairs of my underwear have been ruined by the Velcro on J's ACUs? It's ridiculous. I quickly learned that I can't wash the ACUs with anything else. 
  • My next door neighbor's cleaning lady sounds like she's tearing the apartment up. 
  • Mama came to hang out with us last Thursday. It was a lot of fun having her here. She watched me fold clothes, helped me fix dinner and then we swam. J came home early and went swimming with us and then we ate dinner. I made a pork roast with carrots, potatoes and onions. It was pretty yummy. =)
  •  Did I mention that I won Chantal's giveaway! Yes I did!! I'll be reading a new book soon!
  • I finally finished cleaning out the spare bedroom Sunday. It looks a lot better, but now all the camping stuff is laying in the hallway, waiting on J to take it to storage. 
  • My friend Janel is on first shift this week, which means she doesn't get home until after 4 and then I don't see her because her husband is at home. Boo! I like second shift much better so she has time to go to the pool with me. lol. I'm selfish that way.
  • I seriously need to find the library here.
  • Hahahahaha, the cleaning lady just sucked something up and the vacuum cleaner was making a horrible buzzing noise.
  • This conversation just took place on FB:
  •  It rained over the weekend, thank God. It was great. I was home alone and cleaning out the spare bedroom and it just started pouring. I was like, what is that??
  • It also rained Friday while J and I were out eating at this great restaurant-- Mexico Lindo Grill. The food was awesome, the atmosphere was awesome, they didn't cost too much and their staff was very attentive. We'll def. be going back there soon. 
  • J is going to be home for lunch soon and I still haven't eaten breakfast. 
  • This conversation took place the other day:
  •  I had to call and cancel the movie channels yesterday. :( I'm really bummed, because the new seasons of Weeds and Dexter are coming soon. And it's $12.99 a month for just the Showtime channels. UGH!

    Alrighty, that's enough random for today. I'm starving. I will be back tomorrow for Wordless Wednesday and probably to tell you about our date night. I noticed last night that I'm up to 48 minions fans! Don't forget that when I reach 50, I'm doing a giveaway!! {Bet you thought I'd forgotten!} So tell your friends, family and coworkers. Just kidding... but seriously, if you're following me over from RTT, be sure to follow my blog so I can do this giveaway already. GOSH.

Princess bride rules!!! I've seen that sucker at least 20 times. My daughter thinks I'm nuts. LOL

You have a lot going on...or at least a lot of random!

Sorry that J will miss your anniversary. I think we've spent more apart than together. Hey! Maybe that's the key to success!

Princess Bride is one of my absolute favorite movies. My girls love it too. I got them hooked on The Neverending Story too.

That sucks about TMC. You should call the cable company back and tell them your switching to (fill in the blank: FIOS, Direct TV, etc) because they're offering a better deal. We got free HBO, TMC and Showtime and a DVR by doing the very same thing. Totally worth a shot! You got nothing to lose. You've already lost your movie channels.
