Random-y Randomness


Hey all! Just writing on the fly today. Normally I have a ton of blog posts written and scheduled but my "scheduled" folder is looking very empty!

So randomness it is...


CELEBRITY BIG BROTHER



I decided I am going to watch Celebrity Big Brother. Ali made a good point that unless I have a Nielsen box, CBS is not going to care whether I watch or not. But I could contact them and let them know I'm not happy they are giving Omarosa a platform

To be honest... even if I didn't watch, I'd still be keeping up with the show via podcasts, reddit, and message boards, so I would be a hypocrite. I know we're all hypocrites in some areas of our lives...


MIELE VACUUM




A couple weeks ago, we splurged on a Miele vacuum. I am counting on this puppy lasting us 20+ years! I only used it once but so far I like it a lot. I have to figure out the best places to plug it in so the cord doesn't get in my way. It is much lighter than our old dinosaur and more powerful. It is amazing to me how it can get under all of our furniture- even our couch, which is only like 2 inches off the ground! Hopefully the vacuum holds up well and turns out the be worth the investment.


OFFENDING MY HAIRSTYLIST

Remember how I was worried about offending my hairstylist? Well I finally had to call Regis and schedule and appointment with Dan. Luckily, Richard did not answer the phone, it was a girl. So I didn't have to go through the awkwardness of explaining why I was going to a different stylist. For some reason I am not nervous about possibly seeing Richard when I go get my haircut by Dan. I was more worried about the phone call!

Okay now just a couple memes I thought you would like...



And a pic of me and Chrissy from yesterday. He's a BIG, BIG BOY!




I hope you have a great day! Jelly woke up up at 2:11 and I couldn't fall back asleep. 

TODAY IS GOING TO ROCK!!!!

Tell me something random!

  1. Okay, something totally random.... yesterday we had a 2hr delay and I did not know so I went to work. Uggh! Today we had a delay and I took advantage of sleeping in a little!

    1. That stinks!!! How did you not know?

      Also, your comments have been going to my spam but I have been un-spamming them. So if you don't see them right away that's why.

  2. That cat is like a small lion! And I thought Elly was big.

    Here’s something random (and annoying). Yesterday Frank and I went to a meeting about a new landfill that is going to be on a peninsula that sticks into the great salt lake. The landfill is filing to accept hazardous waste from out of state and will be getting coal ash from California, which is expected to blow all over the lake, mess up our air quality and kill a bunch of birds. Living in a republican state is so annoying.

    1. Sometimes I don't realize how big he is until I see a picture!

      Omg idots!!! Are they going to allow it? I don't understand why taking care of the environment isn't a bipartisan issue.

    2. So there has never been a permit like this that has not gotten approved, so probably. But because it is so close to Salt Lake City, they might get a lot of push back. The air quality issues are already on everyone’s mind, and this certainly would not help. Maybe that could get some bipartisan support for denying the permit.

    3. It seems to me that even though UT is a red state, that they must value the beautiful landscape and environment there. Are there any liberal leaning cities in UT?

  3. I saw your FB post about the long run since you couldn't sleep! I hope that doesn't come back to bite you later on (the lack of sleep more than the run).

    I had no clue Jelly was so big until I saw your pic!

    I will probably watch Celebrity Big Brother too.

    1. I am hoping that the lack of sleep just means that I will sleep like a baby tonight. Fingers crossed! That is actually Christmas! Jelly is big too but not as big. You will watch BB!? Yay! We can talk about it. Posting about it tomorrow...

  4. It's weird how Chrissy is a big boy and a tiny little baby all at the same time but he is!!!

    I'm sorry that your sleep sched. is still so crazy. I recently stopped looking at my phone in bed and that's helped me fall asleep faster, but it sounds like falling asleep isn't your problem, it's getting back to sleep after waking up :(.

    1. lol he IS a big boy and a baby. :)

  5. Your cat! He is a big guy! But I want to cuddle him! And I'm LOL'ing at the Justin Timberlake kid, it was so funny, you could just see the panic in his face when the whole thing went down. It was hilarious.

    1. Do you think the kid knew ahead of time? I thought he prob did but I still think the meme is funny. Especially because he kind of looks like JT!

  6. I decided to totally switch hair salons but I send my hairstylist a text to let her know. We have become "friends" over the years and I just wanted her to know. Honestly, it wasn't really anything she was doing (except there were certain things she did with the cut that I didn't love) but I switched to an Aveda salon because as I get older, my hair can't handle the harsh chemicals as much. And I don't want to be bald....LOL.

    1. No one wants to be bald! That is so nice of you to send her a text. I've only seen this guy twice so I guess I am just "ghosting" him hahaha.

  7. I saw a double rainbow driving to work yesterday. The first one was so solid, and it arced over almost the entire campus.

  8. Luna woke me up at 4:10 this morning. Ugh. Every night we ask her if she's going to be good and let us sleep. Alan actually believes she says "yes" and doesn't put her in the bathroom. Or he's just lazy. Actually, I think he's just being lazy. haha!!

    1. Aww maybe he just loves her and doesn't want to put her in the bathroom. ;)

  9. The vacuum reminds me of the old electrolux model. I am sure it will last! It is worth it.
    Jelly go to sleep brother lol Tweek wakes me up a lot now, he just meows loudly all night.
    Random: I got a bunch of things cut off my neck today. I seem to be sprouting spongy skin tags but they will test then and be sure...surprisingly, the Doc said just a few days off and I could try as long as the area doesn't sting I can continue. Kinda gross...

    1. Wait I have a question... what are you supposed to wait a few days before doing?

      Did it hurt?

  10. Yes! You invested in a good German vacuum cleaner... it definitely should LAST! (My parents had theirs for FOREVER.) :)
