THIS AND THAT …
Just some random thoughts that don’t really warrant an entire post, but put all the randomness together and I get a post! I should’ve made that sentence rhyme somehow.
- Carting the issue. Whenever I go shopping, I somehow manage to pick the cart that has issues. Like one of the wheels is kind of defective and causes small bumps when strolling through the store. Or one of the wheels is super squeaky and loud. Of course, I don’t realize I have a defective cart until I’m a mile away from the store entrance. Do all stores have one or two tiny defected carts? And how do those carts end up with me? One of life’s many mysteries — how do I end up with an almost-defective shopping cart?
- Tic-Tacs are just evil. I haven’t had the little candies in so long because I’ve never really had a reason to buy them. Gum is pretty much all I need when I’m on the run, and my amazing electronic toothbrush gets the job done at home. Anyway, I started buying the tiny candies because the containers can be used to store brads — a scrapbook accessory. I didn’t realize how addicting Tic-Tacs are when I started snacking on them. If my conscience let me, I could probably devour an entire container in a minute — the orange candies in less than a minute, the minty ones in about two minutes. How sad is that? I’m convinced the candymakers add some sort of ingredient that makes the consumer want more after a few seconds.
- The amazing world of gumball — this not a behind-scene look at how candy gumballs are made or the history. None of that. It’s a kids show on the Cartoon Network. The network name should’ve been my first clue that the title was for a kids show. I love gumballs — always have and always will. Kids and cheap gumballs will always go together. To insure my favorite aunt status, I gave a quarter each to my two nephews and niece for 10 seconds of entertainment at a fancy gumball machine. Watch the gumball roll around in circles before finally dropping down into the shoot is always entertaining.
- Call me maybe. I know I shouldn’t like the song “Call Me Maybe” by Carly Rae Jepsen, but I do. Pure pop. Pure sugar. A song for tweens. Just pure fun and bouncy, and I love the song. And for some reason, I love watching the homemade video for the song of Carly Rae and her friends — Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, Ashley Tisdale, to name a few. The whole crew look like they’re having fun lip-synching the catchy little tune. Did me and my friends ever have that much fun when we were younger? Then again, none of us were superstar pop singers with millions of dollars. Although I’m pretty sure all of us daydreamed about dating one of the members of New Kids on the Block — almost the same thing, right?
