Random on a Dreary Thursday

If you're coming here, expecting the usual coherent post, might as well click away now. I'm sleepy. My thoughts are disjointed after a night of vivid, realistic dreams and a morning that did not include enough coffee. But I MUST get in gear for the insanity of blogging that is NaBloPoMo, which still sounds like something nasty you do to clowns.

First of all, don't you know "Joe the Plumber" was cringing last night? Someone told me his name was mentioned 26 times in the debate. Joe Six Pack's day in the sun is officially over.

Today, if you have never done so, I encourage you to play this game:
Help end world hunger
Warning: it can be addictive. Good news: your addiction will make a difference, and very well may save someone's life.

Grr...I was DVRing "Project Runway" AND "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" last night. DVR went awry. Boo. Hiss.

Major congratulations to my kiddo for making the SATB All-Region Choir as a FRESHMAN! She is the second alternate for All-State auditions...and I just couldn't be any prouder. Who knew that all those hours I spent listening to her bellow out songs from "The Little Mermaid" would actually pay off someday?

Oh, and her yellow pants are in high demand. Had a friend and his daughter visit last night, so that she could borrow them to wear at today's pep rally.

Last, but not least - a triple thank you to Swampilicious. Not only did she send me a beautiful, Swampy-made card the other day, but she awarded me with this:I know I lot of you bloggers have had this for a while, but not me! Swampy is a special lady - a survivor of breast cancer, and a big advocate for breast cancer awareness. If you have never been to her site, GO NOW.

I am supposed to award this to other bloggers, but Swampy has given it to all of you already, methinks. However, if you don't have it, and want it, GET IT! Put it in your sidebar...but one catch, you MUST VISIT SWAMPY FIRST.

Okay - all my energy is gone. And I must do some work. Remind me not to play drinking games during presidential debates.

Drinking games during the debate? That's a good idea. Did it make any more sense that way?
Major congrats to your daughter!

It's probably a good thing you weren't drinking to "Joe"!

OMG! Drinking to "Joe" Hahahahahah Sounds like a plan for the next presidential debate....drinking games! Big Congrats on your daughter!!

swampy said...

Hugs and Kisses to you my friend.
It's been so long since I was handing out the "Swampy," I could have sworn you already had one.

My total oversight because you've been one of my first, really dedicated blogbuds for a long, long time.

Now, sleep tight and have a wonderful weekend.

rayne - thank you, and believe it or not, it helped TREMENDOUSLY.

sayre - no lie! 26 times he was mentioned, I think...a star is born!

bermudabluez - thanks - and I think I may drink nightly from now until the election. I just can't take much more of this!

swampy - I'm still VERY honored...

dailypiglet - many thanks! You deserve one as well!

m@ - would not look right with my beautiful olive would turn me sallow, I'm afraid.
