This Week's Hairbrained Musings (9)

Another week of moments and musings.

*The paperwork you have to fill out, and the orientation sessions you have to attend when starting a new job are designed to weed out the weak!  I mean, seriously-- if you still want to work for public schools after watching the blood-born pathogens video, you're either crazy or REALLY love your job.

*I don't need to keep buying expensive craft supplies.  A simple roll of tape, a little paint, and a good pair of scissors is all it takes to transform my recycling bin in the the coolest crafting kit ever!  Birdie and Princess have been repurposing plastic bottles as jack-o-lanterns, princess-shaped candleholders, and Pokemon all morning long.

*I like Starbucks as much as the next person-- as long as I'm not paying for it!  I prefer to get my liquid crack at a discount, like from McDonald's, or the free coffee pot in the teacher's lounge.

*Dear shopping malls, you all suck.  The end.

*Those indoor inflatables gyms may look clean, but let me assure you they are not.  In one 90-minute session, I observed every body fluid imaginable (blood, boogers, tears, poo, pee, AND vomit-- and I just wish I were exaggerating!!) deposited somewhere in that big bouncy room.  They should have paid me $10 for staying, instead of the other way around!

*Oh, the Olympics... two and a half weeks of nothing but re-runs and sickeningly athletic people on tv.  I'm getting depressed just thinking about it.  I should probably go buy more ice cream.

*The jean shorts that most teenage girls wear these days are nothing more than denim panties.  Come on, ladies-- really?!  You can't truly be baffled as to why teenage boys get all pervy around you, can you?!  I am pretty sure someone somewhere sells shorts that are longer than they are wide AND don't require a paint brush to put them on.  Just saying.

Until next time...


  1. Ahhh, my favorite time of the week... LOVE these posts! And the shorts thing drives me in sane... luckily my daughter won't even wear a shirt that shows her stomach if she raises her arms :) Boy do I hope that never changes!

  2. No kidding!!! So sick of the denim underpants!!! I do not need to see that much. :)

  3. Oh, thank you for saying what I always thought..why would anyone pay Starbucks when McDonald's coffee tastes just the same!!

  4. Yes, shopping malls DO SUCK! I avoid them like the Plague. Do you know how many fungal infections are transmitted via these bouncy rooms our children love? Neither do I, nor do I want to. And I love the consent/release/disclaimers they make you sign before allowing your kid to get contaminated. Yuck.

  5. YES!!! I love the jean shorts because I watched 3 pair come walking through my front door today. I'm just waiting for someone's coochie to fall out :/

  6. I totally agree with all of these. Just stopping by from Mom's Monday Mingle blog hop. I am your newest follower.

  7. Preach about the jean shorts. I'm going on record: Not My Child! I found you on Mingle Monday!
