Questions I'm asking myself right now...

*Why do I always stay up and fight sleep like a toddler to watch the Oscars when I'm bored to tears?  It's like I'm afraid I'll miss something hugely momentous and will then be the only human being on the planet who didn't see it. 

*Why has Brisco Darling the wiener dog suddenly become an insomniac?  I swear he has not slept through the night since he went nose to nose with Tuesday the squirrel in the sunroom last week. 

*How in the world did Dracen not realize his pants were 3 sizes too big this morning?  I, in my early morning fog and stupor, accidentally gave him a pair of Devin's pants to put on and he had already eaten breakfast, combed his hair, and was in the process of brushing his teeth when I noticed that his feet weren't visible and the crotch of his pants was at his knees.

*Why do people feel it necessary to drop the F bomb or constantly broadcast negative vibes in their facebook statuses?  Just say no to that. Please.

*How is it that Charlie had never tried Kellogg's Corn Pops cereal or butter in his oatmeal until just last week?  I'm introduing him to some fine breakfast cuisine over here. 

*What do so many people see in shows like Jersey Shore, Jerseylicious, and Real Housewives?  I mean, I will admit that I can't flip past Hoarders, Hoarding:Buried Alive or You Won't Believe What My Dog Ate  but watching a bunch of shallow, over-tanned, over-accessorized people get drunk and talk smack about each other is not my idea of a good time.

*Why does every single movie nowadays have a sex scene and someone who can't refrain from throwing around the F bomb in every other sentence, thus turning what could very well have been a PG movie that I could have taken the kids to into a PG-13 or R movie?  This is why I have not seen most of the movies nominated for awards last night.  Though Charlie and I did have a date night to see Black Swan a few weeks ago.  I was a little freaked out to discover that the actress who played Natalie Portman's character's mom was Barbara Hershey.  I had to google who that was when I got home and was shocked to discover it was her.  Didn't she used to be, I don't know...feminine?

*Where did Dracen get the idea to say "this just isn't working for me" about things like his math homework, taking out the trash and cleaning the guinea pig cage?  He's 7.

*Why did I find a dirty spoon on the floor of the boys' bathroom this morning? 

*Why do I have disturbing dreams every time I eat seafood?  I had shrimp at the Japanese restaurant yesterday and had a very eerie dream last night that I can't even remember...just recall waking up in the middle of the night scared out of my wits.  And I swear it happens every time I have seafood. There has to be something to this.  I mean, just look at Spongebob with his crazy dreams and he's living right down there with all those little sea critters, which brings me to my final question for today...

*Why does Spongebob live in a pineapple and why don't more people question the fact that he does?  Pineapples don't grow under the sea!    

Can anyone answer any of these question for me?  Anyone?


  1. I second the facebook F bomb. Thank you for bringing this up.

  2. I think of the pineapple as like some really interesting looking coral structure that he lives in, not a pineapple.

  4. LOL! I love this. I am so with you on the F bomb on Facebook, movies, anywhere for that matter. I hate it.
    LOL about Spongebob girl. :)

  5. I can't answer a single one -- but I loved them all!! The spoon? Ha! And 'this just isn't working for me' LOVE!

  6. You are too funny! It took me a long time into Black Swan to realize that was Barbara Hershey too! She's apparently been living a rough life since last we met. Yowza.

  7. We were at aquarium the other day. We answered and got a question right from watching sponge bob. Pretty sad, huh?

    I can't believe how common the F bomb is now a days! I don't think I knew that word till college or much later.

  8. I haven't had anything but Broadcast Cable (ie 2-10) in a year, so I'm not much help... but I will say that I've been thinking the same sort of thing about a lot of books I've read lately - surely there is another way to move the plot forward without someone committing adultery? Okay, so my kids aren't reading with me, but still...

  9. Okay, I was rolling about the dirty spoon in the bathroom. Hahaha. Sometimes it is just better to NOT ask.

  10. hahaha, I'm with you on Housewives and Jersey Shore, and Hoarders too for that matter. That show is captivating for some reason! And Spongebob drives me nuts. All 3 kids like to watch it. And yes, it is a "pineapple under the sea" - makes no sense. Not that the rest of the show makes any sense either. It's his voice that grates on my nerves! And I have to be careful abt the f-bomb...I say 'fudge' a lot :/
