A Few Thoughts For A Thursday

Well, technically, I had thoughts to write this blog on Monday, but it would be ludicrous to call this Thursday blog "A Few Thoughts For A Monday."  Ya follow?  No?  Me either. 

Let me apologize in advance for the inner workings of my brain.  

A few things I'm lovin' right about now:

1)  So You Think You Can Dance (i.e., SYTYCD).  Who doesn't love this show?  It's the dance version of American Idol.  And who doesn't love that show?  Oh but don't get me started on AI. I loved Kris, but puh-leeze! Adam should have won! I have lost faith in my fellow AI voters. Never mind the fact that I never pick up the phone to vote. I just like to sit back and complain during the results shows, but that's completely beside the point. Back to SYTYCD - if you have never watched it, tune in next time and soak in all the dance-y goodness!

2) New Moon (i.e., Book #2 of the Twilight series).  Soo good.  I'm gonna start a countdown for the movie.  It comes out Nov. 20.   Ladies and gentleman, start your (old fixer-upper wobbly motorcycle) engines.   Hehe. 

3) Wine.  Yum.  Went to a wine tasting last night with some co-workers. Good company + good wine + beautiful rolling hills + slight buzz = great time.  We couldn't help but talk over the poor woman who was enthusiastically giving us (an unappreciated) history lesson in wine. We tend to talk over everyone, really. We're a loud bunch.  Anyhoo, one of the white wines was described as white flower and nectarine tasting.  What exactly does a white flower taste like?  I wonder how you get THAT job.  I wanna be a wine-maker-upper-of- flavors-and-aromas person.  My first wine will be likened to.......hamster and elderberry! (note: if you are not a Monty Python fan, you will not get that joke. You should be ashamed of yourself.)

4) My boyfriend. We crack me up.   For instance...

Him: You see that lawn chair over there? The red one?
Me: There is nothing red within ten miles of us right now. 
Him: Not the white one laying down in the yard, but past that one. The red one standing upright. 
Me: (long pause) Red???
Him: (getting obviously more irritated with me) Yes, the red one!!!
Me: It's not red!
Him: Ugghhhh!!
Me: (speaking softly now) It's more of a...terra cotta...
Him: Oh my gosh..
Me: So what about this so-called "red" chair?
Him: Nevermind.

And then today...

Me: I layed out by the pool today!
Him: Oh yeah? Which bathing suit did you decide to wear?
Me: The coral one.  [I should have known better]
Him: The strapless one?
Me: No, that strapless one is BROWN!
Him: I don't know what coral is!! The pink one??!!
Me:  (Sigh!) No, the coral one!

Aren't we just a bucket of fun?  :)  

I will have to sit him down one day with some paint swatches -- oh goodness -- how will things be when we paint our future house one day??!!!!  I can just see it now...

Me: Hey babe, I'm thinking we should do our master bath a pale canary.
Him: Hmm...I don't like purple.
Me: Lord help us. 

5) Facebook flair application.  How sweet is it to show off your "flair" in the form of super cute buttons?  Love wiener dogs? There's a button for that.  Have a thing for Chuck Norris? (weirdo). There's a button for that. Love all things Edward, Jacob, and Forks? There's flair for that too! It's so fun! What more can you ask from Facebook? 

6) Conan O'Brien.  L.O.V.E. him.  Sooooo glad he got an earlier time slot.  Number five (above) reminded me of why I love Conan so much (besides the fact that he's a crazy, hilarious, freakishly tall redhead).  Last night he said that in the year 3,000 the ever popular websites Youtube, Twitter, and Facebook would be joined to create one website called, YouTwitFace.  
Man, that guy is hilarious. I laughed all by myself for like 30 minutes. And then again today for about 15. 

That's all I can muster up for now.  But stay tuned sweet bloggers.

Love your messy desktop background - it looks so much like your real desk. LOL - love your color-blind story. So twu, so twu. My dad would be out working in the yard and he'd say, "Go inside and bring me my gray sweater." Dad was often stern and angry - not one to toy with - so when my poor, frightened 12-year-old self could only find an olive green sweater in his closet, I presented it too him with fear and trembling. "I couldn't find a gray one, Daddy! Only this green one!" And he's like, "Yeah, that's the one." Sheeesh. No wonder I suffer from IBS! :)

Well, I guess I have that wine job you're talking about - the trick is to jabber on and on and give references to "white flowers" and "black fruits" and therefore confusing the hell out of them. This works in my favor when working with buyers because I can then sell in the wine I think would be appropriate or some I need to just get out of the warehouse. Just be nice to those poor people doing wine tastings - most of the time, we don't want to be up there anymore than you want us there. :)

Ha ha, your discussions with your boy sound a lot like mine. Two different minds, but you gotta love them. I can't wait for New Moon to come out!!! Glad I came across your blog - has an amazing day!

Jennjilla - haha! I hear ya. Wine tastings are lots of fun. I must do another one soon!

OceanDreams - Thanks!! Glad you were amused. Gotta love the differences between the male/female brain. :)

Oh, NOW I get our lengthy conversation about the color of bathing suits on Saturday. Guys are pretty boring when it comes to colors. G refuses to believe that anything other than primary colors exist in the world. Clearly, he will not be in charge of decorating our first house.
