My Awesomely Random Life (and Everything in Between)

Thoughts on a Thursday

  • Can we just talk about how much I LOVE this?!?! To all the butt and boob guys out there…
  • I recently discovered the amazingness that is NetFlix. Crap.
  • My new obsession? Scented markers. The plus side: They smell delicious. The bad side: I am now branded with red, blue, green and yellow dots on my nose. Don’t judge.
  • Is it me or does this truck have a big badunkadunk. A badunkadunky truck. Try saying that 5 times fast 😉

  • I’m in the process of putting together my “Winter Break” reading list. So far I’ve got about 23 titles including this and this and this. And before you say anything, I know, I know…I’m going to have to add more books. Those 23 will last me all of about a week to get through. #nerdgirlproblems
  • My poor baby had to go into the vet yesterday to get roto-rootered (he was a little backed up). Good news is, he now can booty pop like no other pooch I’ve ever seen. Or booty toot, in his case. thunds
  • The bug guy payed yet another visit to my ant-infested house today. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed when he walked up the front steps and didn’t resemble a member of this crew…

  • Awkward face-reddening-like-a-bright-tomato moment of the week (so far): Asking the customer service rep at the mall if they could please tell me where the S&M store was. Yup. I said S&M. The poor guy looked at me like I had three heads or something. “Um. Do you mean H&M?” he asked, his face as red nearly as red as mine. “Yeah, that would be the one.” Isn’t that horrible?! But that’s not even the worst part. This was the second time I had confused the two completely and utterly different shops. Oy vey.

Have a great rest of your Friday-eve, friends!


CURRENTS are Just Raisins, Aren’t They?

CURRENTLY I am rocking my spiffy new pair of Milwaukee Brewers socks (of which I have a total of five–after all, a gal can never have too many Brewer socks, right?). I guess you could say they are “Crew” cut. I know, I know, that was lame although like Brewer socks, one can never have too many puns. Just FYI: There are only 41 short days until the Brew Crew reports to spring training!! Not that I am counting or anything 😉

My CURRENT jams are anything and everything 90’s (thank you mucho Pandora for the inspiration and amazeballs suggestions). That crazy person singing into her hairbrush and dancing around her room like a madwoman, yeah, that would be me. But one can’t help but get up and bust a move when you’re listening to the likes of TLC, The Beasty Boys, Nirvana, The Fugees, Dr. Dree, Hanson and of course a little Savage Garden. That reminds me, does anyone know where I can find a ‘chic  a cherry cola’?

I CURRENTLY have a hankering for one of these delicious diddies. It’s my challenge-O-the week! I haven’t had one of these guys in a long, long time but tonight’s the night! Bring that burger on!

Good thing I have plans to go to Yeah! Burger tonight!

My dog is CURRENTLY snoring so loud, I thought for a moment it was thundering outside. Which is kind of ironic, seeing as his name in, in all actuality, Thunder. Coincidence? I think not.

The lights in my room are CURRENTLY blinking on and off. Either my light bulbs are on the fritz or Casper the friendly ghost stopped by to say hi. “When there’s something strange, in the neighborhood, who ya gonna call? Ghostbusters!” Although, if my ghost happens to be a cutie-patutie like this guy, I think I can let it slide.

I am CURRENTLY working on the second to last chapter of my very first book and couldn’t be more excited!!!

However, I have also been sitting in the same spot while working on the second to last chapter of my book for over four hours now and as such, CURRENTLY have the tinglies in my feet ( I guess my dog AND my feet decided to take a long nap this afternoon). Isn’t that the weirdest feeling when your feet fall asleep? I wonder what causes that?

Because this is going to drive me insane if I don’t find out, I am now CURRENTLY Googling ‘what causes the tingles when your feet fall asleep’?

Just an FYI: According to Discovery Health, you feel this familiar sensation after you’ve been putting pressure on part of you­r body — sitting on a foot, sleeping on an arm, etc. When you apply this pressure for a prolonged period of time, you actually cut off communication from your brain to parts of your body. The pressure squeezes nerve pathways so that the nerves can’t transmit electrochemical impulses properly. Nerve impulses carry sensation information from nerve endings in the body to the brain, as well as instructions from the brain to the parts of the body. When you interfere with this transfer by squeezing the nerve pathways, you don’t have full feeling in that body part, and your brain has trouble telling the body part what to do.

This pressure can also squeeze arteries, stopping them from carrying nutrients to body cells. Without these nutrients, the nerve cells may behave abnormally, which can further interfere with communicating bodily sensations.

Due to both these factors, the information transmitted from the body part becomes somewhat jumbled, and the brain receives strange messages. Some nerve cells don’t transmit any information and others start sending impulses erratically. This causes you to feel a strange tingling sensation, which actually serves an important function. Your foot falling asleep for 10 minutes doesn’t pose any health threat, but if you were to cut off circulation for an extended period of time — several hours — you could suffer serious nerve damage. The initial tingling sensation tells you that you might want to readjust your position.

Once you do move your foot, stretch your legs, or roll over off your arm, the nerve impulses begin to flow properly again. You don’t regain feeling right away, however. There is a certain amount of re-adjustment time before the nerves transmit impulses correctly again. This increases the intensity of the tingling, causing the familiar “pins and needles” sensation.

And there you have it. If you ever are on Jeopardy and are asked the $10,000 question, you can look straight at Alex Trebec’s cocky grin and blast him with this impressive answer in confidence. You’re welcome.

I CURRENTLY want to go watch Jeopardy now. Well, maybe not that actual show. I’m more of a Wheel of Fortune gal when it comes to playing–does anyone else feel stupid when trying to play along with that show? I mean who comes up with those darn questions? It’s probably a conspiracy and I bet Alex Trebec and Chuck Norris are behind it all. However, I do love me some of this kind of Jeopardy.

Have a great Tuesday night guys!
