Cookie clicker

Whatever you do, don't play cookie clicker. You might get addicted. I don't even know if it's fun anymore, I just keep playing and I don't plan to stop.

Happy Fall, Y'all!

My friend, Kim, made us a front-door wreath this past summer. She painted the numbers and everything! She is so talented. She had white flowers and a beautiful grey bow on the side - perfect for summer. I updated the bow and flowers last night to be perfect for the fall! 

Do I now get classified as 'advanced' on Pinterest? Does that site even have levels?

Not quite retired

The McDonnell Douglas DC-10 was retired as a passenger airplane in February 2014. This one was converted into a firefighting plane and it's quite an amazing sight. The colorful commentary is also entertaining. Enjoy!

We played a game at a co-workers baby shower this week. Everyone brings in a baby picture and we all try to match the babies to the adults.

This game is especially a doozy if you haven't yet learned all of your co-workers names and faces. Needless to say I was not victorious.

Ok. Good setup. Now why I'm really writing this post.

When each of the 30 (out of 31) baby picture's matching adults were revealed, (is that the proper grammar? whew speaking of doozies. pictures plural? was revealed? heeelllpp meee) the reaction was usually, "OMG! WOW! Holy cow that is YOU?! What a cute cowboy outfit! Oh I thought that was a girl baby! Giggle laugh giggle laugh!"

Here's how it went when they pointed to my picture:

Host: "Baby #18, anyone want to gue..."


Left side is baby me. Right side is adult me. I felt the need to say that since apparently baby me looks SO much like adult me.

You know this happened to me in fourth grade, too. (I'm clearly over it.) At the time I got upset and blamed my Mom (ack!) because I thought she sent in a photo of me as a toddler, not as a baby. Because of course, me as a 2-year old would look so much more like 4th-grade me than as a 1-year old... (I never said I was rational.) The entire class guessed me correctly and I was traumatized forever. But this shower was my chance to redeem myself! (because it's all about me...)

Instead I'm still trying to figure out why I still look like a baby. Woe is me.

There you go, that is the whole point of this post. Nothing but deep and insightful thoughts going on in my world. I am the modern-day Buddha.

Sending yall lots of love for the weekend.

¿Don't? have some more salt.

Two articles came out recently, one says salt kills millions and the other says it's okay to have more salt. Go figure. I think the main point is that salt is fine for people who know they don't have cardiovascular problems. Here's where I make a brilliant joke about balancing your salt intake.
