A veritable potpourri of my ramblings...

Tena, over at My Therapy, does a Friday Fragments segment every Friday (just in case that wasn't obvious). I am running with that idea because there are many times when I have so many thoughts running through my head that they can't be lumped into a blog entry with one main topic. So here it goes...
  • I am, and will continue as long as possible, to be in denial that a recession is looming. My theory is, keep on spending within reason and kick that recession's ass. I think many of my neighbors have this same idea because I am starting to see the Christmas home decorating businesses in the subdivision hanging up all the Christmas lights and decorations in and on our neighbor's houses.
  • The red bra and panties were a wise purchase, at least the bra was. The bra is made by Natori and may be the most comfortable, along with sexiest, bra I have ever owned. It's a two for one! The undies, however, are a different story. They looked good on, but with one move, my non-thong panties were thong panties. Not a comfortable feeling when a non-thong becomes a thong. I am not a large person and I bought the right size, but I apparently have a little extra junk in my trunk and these panties were staging a revolt against my ass. They do make a nice getup for a few moments of wear before becoming a floor decoration.
  • Earlier this week, I attended a preview party/fundraiser at our new Crate and Barrel which opened later in the week. My partner in crime, who I attended with, was on the edge of drinking too much wine. She decided she better stop because "this store has too much glass displayed for me to drink any more." That was right before I backed into a tower of wine glasses. No harm done or else they may have escorted me and her drunken ass to the door. I bought a Cuisinart hand mixer. For half off. I was thrilled. And Children's Medical Center raised a ton of money over the course of the evening. I haven't had a reason to use the mixer yet, but I do keep putting the beaters in, turning it on and off, and then pushing the eject button which literally shoots the beaters across the countertop. There's not much I won't do for a few shits and giggles.
  • I still haven't totally shaken my cluttered brain issue. (Might this be a new medical term for "losing my mind"?) It's much better, though, and I did clean my house today, but I was forced to since I am having friends over this evening. Otherwise I would probably still be in my PJ's, laying on the couch surrounded by clutter, hiding under a blanket. And leaving CJ to his own devices.

Anyone else? Rambling ideas welcome.

PS: Visit Mrs. 444 at Half Past Kissing Time to see a slew of other blogger's Friday Fragments.


  1. That was quite an impressive fractured list - I mean, if you can group thoughts about your red "getup" becoming floor decorations and shooting beaters across a countertop in one post, I again call you a borderline genius. Don't you know that's how a genius mind works?

    Lee, I adore you. Anyone who repeatedly refers to me as a genius is way at the top of my list of people I like to associate with!

  3. Man, I'm so with you on these! What recession? Thanks for the shout out- I hope you don't mind, I added you to the mr. linky at half-past kissing time.

  4. Tena, what a sweetheart you are :) Thanks! Kim, Welcome to Friday Fragments! You did a GREAT job unloading yours :)

    I'm with you on the recession-denial thing. I have a recession-proof job, so-to-speak (I teach emotionally disturbed teens, and there's no shortage of them, LOL.) Unfortunately, though, Mr.4444 has a sales job, which makes for some nervous moments. Keeping my fingers crossed that more people, like you, will keep doing their parts to spend money and help with the ass-wooping! :)
