I’ve just now, just this instant, come up with an idea for a new weekly post. And now you get to see if it is worth a shit or not! Introducing:
What I Learned This Week.
I learned via the blog that I’m not as weird as I thought I was. Or, I learned that I know and like a lot of weird people. I’m guessing it’s a bit of both.
I learned that raw pumpkin in its natural state rots fast – but if it is cooked it a bit to get the skin off, you’ve got another week before you have to freeze it.
I learned my mother-in-law has room in her freezer for a ton of pumpkin.
I learned that eating too many roasted pumpkin seeds gives me a tummy-ache and a sore tongue from the shells and salt.
I learned that if you goose Lokii when he is all hunched up, low to the ground, ears flat, butt-a-wigglin’, ready to attack something (be it a toy, a ball of paper, his brother, or something only he can see), he will forget that he was about to attack. I totally expected that when he was so focused he would jump a mile.
I learned to be super-careful wearing the new socks with built-in soles that hubby bought me. I didn’t smash my face when tripping up the stairs, but only a fast elbow jammed into the baluster saved my nose (I was carrying something and only had one hand).
I learned that it worries me more when I don’t want to bitch to my best friend. She’s not judgemental: it isn’t her. But if I start closing myself off from her…well, that can’t be good. Or maybe I’m sick of hearing myself whine. Hmm, maybe I didn’t learn anything there, yet.
I learned that my dog has started shitting in the middle of the lawn, instead of just around the edges. Ick.
I learned the new John Irving book is too much like his others. I’m sad about that.
I learned that my coworkers had no idea who I would prefer to win in the US presidential election.
I learned that people here ask me, very cautiously, thinking they are being clever: ‘who do you want to win?’ because they are totally going to judge me on my answer.
I learned I always gave the answer they were relieved to hear. But I’m a bit sad that they ever thought I might be for the other guy.
I learned yet again that people can be cruel on the Internet. Even when apologies are offered and explanations given.
I learned not to look in the shopping bags until after hubby finishes unloading the car. Dangerous new socks were supposed to be for me, for Christmas.
I’d like to learn why Lokii is currently upstairs saying mmm, mmmm, mmm, mmmm, over and over and over…
I learned that I enjoy reading your blog 🙂
Aww, thank you! I’ve been waiting for another post from you 🙂
I post one everyday. 🙂 I posted one today and there will be another tomorrow.
Durr… I get a little intimidated over on yours, you get a bazillion replies!
awww don’t be intimidated. I have about 1000 readers a day. I try to reply to every comment and then come over here and read people I follow and new blogs. Everyone is so sweet and supportive. I am not sure what people do after doing this for years. My blog is only 3 1/2 months old. Sometimes it overwhelms me, but in a good I am honored way.
Woah! Well you are funny as fuck, but I could never keep up! I had soooo many comment replies to read thru after the first time I hit the button to let me know a reply was posted, I won’t do that again! I’m terrible about remembering to go back and read, but I already get a couple hundred emails a day – I wish I could do this full time 🙂
LOL I get that. It is fun for sure.
…aaaand I just learned that I forgot to subscribe to it. DOH!!!
oh lol Well I am glad you learned that 😉 I would have missed ya. 😉
Over there now, eyes bugging out, what to comment on after missing so muuuuuch!?!?
As long as you’re laughing that is what matters most 😉
I is. But I’m also being a little annoying now 🙂 sorry, it’s nearly 2am and I’m far from sober!
naaa you’re not annoying, don’t worry. 😉
Millenium hand and shrimp!
I’m alone in a quiet house – and you got an actual, audible, giggle there!
Good because as I said in last weeks post, most people lie when they type lol
Holy fuckmonkeys, I can’t even read that last one.
You’re not seeing the comments on my blog! It got so narrow even the word ‘itself’ in yiur comment was on two lines 🙂 I can’t afford to buy something to fix that, and I don’t use a computer anymore and changing my ‘theme’ to allow a ton of stacked comments is too annoying, via iPad.
There….all fixed. 😉
Only until we start talking shite again! Which I believe I might be running short on. It’s really, really late here. And I need to pee. And if I’m walking allll the way upstairs to pee, I might as well go to bed. Unless I’ve not finished my drink yet. In which case I might decide to make coffee for the morning.
ahhh well you get some rest.
I might, indeed. As long as these spiffy new socks don’t try to kill me again.
sure they will kill you
I was sober when they tried to, the first time. Now I’m pretty sure that I’m not sober, and I have to pee. Bad. Hehehe.
If you don’t hear from me for a few days, you’ll know why. Here I go…
Yuo can fix the number of replies allowed—> Dashboard, Settings, Discussion, Other Comment Settings, Enable threaded (nested) replies….
Et voila, no more Column of Doom! I hope!
It took ages, but I found it! Cut them down from 10 to 6 allowed, that should do it! Thanks 🙂
Personally, I think your physio is the strange one, not knowing about such basic reflexes…
Your things I learned idea is fabby. Sad about the John Irving book 😦 non-slip socks are a mixed blessing by the sound of it!
There will be a time again when you feel comfy bitching about whatever bothers you to your best friend. 😉
Lesson learned – read your blog more often because it really made me smile. Thanks.
