Thursday Random Thoughts 5/20/10

Stuff I have been thinking about:

-First off I wanted to congratulate Miss Michigan Rima Fakih for winning Miss USA the other week... and wanted a good excuse to put her picture on my blog.

-I have no R's in any of my three names but Each name ends in the letter E.

-I was given a blogging award by one of my newest and most fun Twitter/Blogger friends Monkeyheads_Mom. For some unknown reason she likes what she reads here and says we make her laugh. Even though we have her waaaay fooled I would still suggest you check out her blog Through the Eyes of Lauren which is written from the perspective of her six month old daughter. Very cute!

-People who don't wash their hands after they use the bathroom skeeze me out something way badly. Sorry I don't have any other way of putting it. Might be my worst pet peeve ever. And on a related note I NEVER ever directly touch a bathroom door handle/knob.



-Does anyone else like those Staples "WOW, Now that's a Low Price" commercials? My son sure does. ANY time we need to change his mood and get him laughing just pull up Youtube and he is captivated. He belly laughs so hard that it makes me laugh. Only one problem, if you are going to do this be prepared to watch the commercial over and over numerous times. Trust me, I know it by heart.

-Ke$ha is very VERY annoying.

-I learned last week that it's very difficult to moderate an online debate when all the combatants aren't on Twitter. And that's all I have to say about that.

-Over Mother's Day weekend Mt. Cat got bitten by a dog and I have been trying to get him to blog about it but I guess the rabies have taken over and he hasn't had time. ROTFL!

-Oh and one last thing. I have had to suspend my countdown until the day I can get a blackberry because my wife now seems to want an I-Phone. I guess we will have to see when the time comes.

Until Next time...

-Doc

The Staples "WOW, Now that's a Low Price" commercials? HATE THEM! But apparently they are directed at the toddler crowd, of which I am no longer a part of :)

Mrs. D said...

Not a fan of the Staples commercials, but my kids are amused, too.

I won't touch door handles in public... yuck.

I have an "r" in the last name and all three names end in "e" as well.

In one building I used to work at we didn't have break room access (LONG story) so I would have to do my dishes in the bathroom. I would also wash hands after using the bathroom or handeling office stuff that would make hands dirty and or sticky.

One skank (hey, an older woman in my office called her that) had the frizzy permed hair from the 80s would use the bathroom and sometimes be in there longer than just a wizz. I would be scooting over to make sure she had plenty of access to the second sink.

She would walk up. Scrunch her hair a few times and walk out. The scrunching didn't help. Don't know why she bothered.

After that I nearly always use a papertowel to open the door.

You can get some deals to get two blackberries/I-Phones. Keep your eyes open.

Matt-Man said...

We hit the mute button whenever the Staples ad comes on. I looooooathe it. Cheers Doc!!

Monkey's Mom said...

First off, thanks for the shout out.Like I said y'all make me laugh.
I will never pull that stupid comercial up for Monkey cause every time I see and hear it I wish i was both blind and deaf. #HATE
I like you even more now that I know you hate Ke$ha. My husband LOVES her and constantly reminds me of how awesome she is #yuck
And public bathrooms are one of my fears. I hate using them and try my hardest not to. the worst part of being prego was that I had to pee all the time, thus requiring me to use public restrooms #whyaretheycalledrestrooms #youdontsleepinthem. I always use a paper towel to open the doors and flush to toilet. always.

I hate those Staples commercials. Annoying.

I have also been wanting to hear the dog bite story.

Iphone all the way!!

Curvy Jones said...

I have an R in my middle name. It's Latreece. Now you know something few people know. Congratulations.

Don't tell anyone but I am contemplating a jump to iPhone land when my TMO contract is up in October. I trust you to keep this secret for me. No one can find out.

And also I am pissed because I was going to do a random thoughts post but you've gone and done it and so now...........I'm still gonna do it. *shrug*

Disaster Chick said...

I think this fall the exclusive AT&T contract for IPhone is up. Not 100% sure, but the rumor I heard. Don't exactly want to leave Verizon when everyone at the other office complains about AT&T service. I often in up in rural areas and would still like coverage.

Jetsa said...

I've never seen the Staples commercial! And Ke$ha brings out the worst of me. Your wife is a wise woman with the iphone choice. I read recently that the AT&T exclusivity contract has been extended until 2012

Jay said...

Put me in the "hate the Staples commercials" category.

I think it would be a tough decision between the Droid and iPhone. And I hear there is a new Blackberry that is similar style to the Droid coming out later this summer. So many choices.

For you. I doubt I'll get any of them. haha

/dying for an iPhone or Droid

I use the papertowel I dry my hands with to open restroom doors. I also carry anti-bacterial wipes and gel in the car and stationed at my desk. Use them after pumping gas, using others computers, shaking hands, etc.

The AbsolutGator said...

And who the hell is Ke$ha???

The Mountain Cat said...

I 'blogged' about my dog bite on Facebook. I do not have the creativity to write long stories anymore. Oh and I am fine now thank you.

Evil Twin's Wife said...

I also get grossed out when people don't wash their hands after using the bathroom.

We have to watch Sesame Street's "Ladybug Picnic" on YouTube every night.

Doc said...

Ok So everyone hates the Staples Commercial... I will tell Lil Doc and he will say "thats Crazy!"

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

We all hate the Staples commercials, but we know they ARE Staples commercials, so they did their job

Never touch bathroom doors

Monkey's Mom said...

oh an the Iphone rocks. I would literally die without it, ok maybe not literally but I would be close to death without it.

Just me... said...

Missed the Staples commercial and not really sure who Ke$ha is but it's a safe bet, with a name like that, she's kinda trashy.. :):)
Oh, and in all four names I have (or had), only one 'E' in the mix......

Warrior_Kat said...

I know what you mean about people not washing their hands after they use the bathroom. That's a pet peeve of mine too. Of course, since I'm a nurse, it should be a pet peeve. lol!

rxBambi said...

terri said...

I'm a juvenile. I get a kick out of the Staples commercials.
