Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday


Woo-hoo! I just found out yesterday that I'm still a Yelp Elite member, and then today found out where hubby's and my first 'date' this year will be :) See, as an Elite, I get invites to cool events set up by the community manager and sponsored by different venues, usually including food and drinks. At the end of January, we get to go to an art gallery for a party, but before the party is a one-hour Elite reception with - you guessed it - free cocktails and munchies :) I love it!

Maggie pulled a lulu today. And by lulu I mean big, bad screw up. The first hour of her 'nap,' I sat in there with her, but she didn't go to sleep. Finally I just told her to rest and walked out. She screamed. And screamed. And then? She screamed some more. After about 20 minutes I went back in and she asked for a tissue (to dry her tears, of course). I picked her up and we went back to our nice playing afternoon. But the next time I took her in there to change her diaper I found what else she'd been doing besides screaming. She peeled off the wallpaper border from the wall at the head of her crib. Mommy and daddy? Were not happy.

I just have to get this off my chest once. It's 'Two-thousand ten,' not 'twenty ten.' I have a long list of reasons that I won't bother you with for now. I said two-thousand nine and now I'll say two-thousand ten.

I'm starting to crave cocoa fudge again. It's super sugary and crunchy and I love it. I think once hubby gets paid on Friday I'll go purchase the sugar (yeah, go figure, I ran out of SUGAR of all things...) and try to make the perfect cocoa fudge. It often takes more than one attempt, but I'm dedicated.

Maggie has got to nap tomorrow. I have chocolate business calls to be made, and I can't do it with her competing for my attention, you know? Never mind a few minutes of quiet for my sanity...

Holy bad nap, catwoman! My mom said I did that once when I was a baby...

I'm saying two zero one zero, but it hasn't caught on yet.

Funny, they just had a long conversation on the radio (public radio) about how to say "2010." I like it spelled out like you. My mom always hated how people say "9-11" rather than Sept. 11th... that didn't bother me either way.

Happy New Year!

Well until you give me good reasons, I'm saying "twenty ten".

The only reason it sounds "weird" to you now is because we aren't used to it yet. But we said "nineteen ten" for 1910, so what's wrong with "twenty ten" in 2010? I mean look at the year 2015... how can you pass up calling that one "twenty fifteen"? And surely by 2045 nobody is going to want to say "two thousand and forty five" instead of the shorter version.

I looked at it an entirely different way. I say twenty ten because in 2110 I don't want to say two thousand one hundred ten. lol I'm literally laughing out loud right now because there is NO WAY I'm going to be around in another hundred years!!! But, that's my reason for twenty ten and not two thousand ten.
