Random Ramblings

Well, I’ve done something different this year. I got a flu shot for the first time in my life. I used to think they were for old people. Now that I’m 50, I guess I am old people.

It was great to have the kids home for Thanksgiving. Michael thought it would be cool to record a family podcast. So we all five sat around the kitchen table and came up with…absolutely nothing. It seems we’re simply not nearly as interesting as we thought we were.

“Webshots” just gleefully announced to me, “You have a total of zero fans and zero friends!” C’mon, guys. Tell me something I don’t already know!

You say “tomato,” I say…

When my daughter calls me in the morning because she’s heard reports that Kentucky had some bad storms the night before, but she gets tongue-tied and asks if we were hit by a tomato…I know it’s going to be an interesting day!

For “Harry Potter” readers: Voldemort lives

Talk about your freaky goings-on.

Yesterday I got an e-mail at work from one Mr.–are you ready for this?–Tom Riddle. He was asking that two other people be removed from our ministry’s mailing list. The reason? “They are now deceased.”

Oh, really? I wonder, Mr. Riddle, how they came to be “now deceased.” For that matter, I thought you were now deceased.

I think this whole thing has gotten to be much bigger than J. K. ever planned. All I know is that when I get an e-mail from evil personified from beyond the grave, it kind of creeps me out for the rest of the day.

No shame

I know they say that the older a person gets, the more difficult it is for him/her to adjust to change of any sort. May I just say that there are some things I can’t get used to and don’t even want to get used to–and I don’t think it has a darn thing to do with my age, thank you very much.

Oh, you want a “for instance?” O.K. How about people talking on cell phones in the stalls of public restrooms? For starters, it’s just plain creepy. I’ll be sitting there, keeping my thoughts to myself, when in comes some perky young thing. She enters the stall next to mine and calls out a cheery “Hi!” So I think she’s talking to me, of course. Why is this complete stranger saying “Hi” to me? We’ve never even seen each other before–and, come to think of it, we’re still not seeing one another now. (more…)
