Good Morning and Happy Sunday, Dear Readers!
I hope that you’ve all had a wonderful week. This past week has been very busy between working at Super Fantastic Gutter Company and BBQ Camp. The busy-ness doesn’t seem to be slowing down either, but that’s okay for right now.
DH and I were supposed to go camping this weekend but the weather reports called for hot and sticky weather which would make two hot and sticky and very cranky campers. We decided to stay home and have a “Stay-cation” and spend time doing things around the area. Friday we headed to the Dane County Fair and then watched movies and played Dominoes the rest of the day. Saturday we went on a road trip, we even got to Moscow and back in a few hours. I dined on Cornish Pasty but was too full for Figgy Hobbin at the Red Rooster Cafe. Their T-shirts claimed, “There is always room for Figgy Hobbin”, but there was no room.
What we end up doing today is a mystery!
Now for the search terms!
This week’s Top Search Term is: baling hay. Tis the season! Baling season that is; gotta make hay while the sun shines. My guess is that those looking up baling hay are in the business of making hay. If they aren’t – kudos to them!
This week’s Honorable Mention goes to: soaps chastity belts. I’m just confused about how this all goes together, but someone was brought to my site with this set of words. I don’t think a soap chastity belt would be very effective…. in fact, I think working it into a lather would be fairly easy; then it would be gone.
Now – to the facts!
Random Facts 198-204
Random Fact #198 – My text alerts are usually silenced.
Unless I’m expecting text messages, my alerts are silent. Over a year ago I decided that the incessant “beeping” from my phone at all hours of the day and night from phone-to-phone texts and notices from Facebook (even though I set my Facebook alerts to not go to my phone after 9 PM), were getting to be a bit much. Setting my alerts to silent did have some side effects – I forget to check my messages because I don’t hear the beeps. I’ve had to tell people who text me regularly not to be hurt/offended if I don’t respond right away.
Random Fact #199 – I have an eidetic memory.
So what is “eidetic memory“? It’s the ability to recall things in exacting detail, from sounds to sights and smells. I’m not a Sheldon Lee Cooper, however.
Random Fact #200 – Unless I really have something to say, I don’t often respond to emails if they are purely informational.
I get a lot of purely informational emails from people. One in particular sends me a TON of informational email with little messages attached that they felt I should read what they’re sending or subscribe to this or that email list. I don’t respond.
Now, when it comes to other emails – yes, yes I do respond… sometimes even at length.
Random Fact #201 – I dislike the word “daddy” as much as I dislike the word “mommy”.
Kids under 7 get a free pass. I think my dislike came from working in student housing and hearing too many going-on-20 women calling their parents on the phone and hearing, “But, DADDY!!!” Eww.
Random Fact #202 – I excel at pointing out situational realities and a person’s limitations, my own or others.
This works for myself as well as others. There is nothing wrong with knowing what the reality of a situation is or ones own limitations. I think it helps people move forward when they realize the path they’re on is not the best one.
Random Fact #203 – I love to play Dominoes.
I can play Dominoes for hours. My latest obsession is Cardinal Mexican Train. LOVE it!
Random Fact #204 – My favorite font is Arial.
This one is kind of an inside joke about Algerian Font. I know a certain sign maker who really hates Algerian Font. If you’re having a sign made – don’t use Algerian Font. On the other hand, Arial is my favorite font.
Thanks for checking in and we’ll see you next week!
Enjoy your mystery tour, that sounds so much better than hot, sweaty camping (or just camping for me). Oh, did you strike a nerve with the “daddy” thing. Recently, my 19 year old daughter asked me if she could go somewhere with the boyfriend (I know I should be glad she even asked), but she didn’t like my response and hit me with “But daddy said I could go.” Needless to say I was a scud missile….for so many reasons.
Ugh! Yeah, no “Daddy” or “Mommy” after the age of 7. A friend responded that she loves hearing her kids say “Daddy” because it means they aren’t calling for HER to come… her kids are under 7 ;).
Arial? Really?….Helvetica here. Daddy?….I hear it but I don’t have kids and…oh crap..I best stop here…haha….that would go in the realm of the soap chastity belt…I am stopping now
I call shenanigans on premature stopping!
OMG….I have a filthy mind
Yeah… I figured you did… two peas in a pod are we.
