Thursday Thoughts


Good Morning Thursday!!!  I can’t believe we’re ALMOST moved.  I just want it to happen already.


We’ve partially taken care of our snake problem… by partially I mean one of them is dead.  I don’t want to get into details… but I was strangely sad.


For Big Brother 16 news… (SPOILER ALERT) if all goes well Devin will go home tonight.


I couldn’t find these online but on July 3rd I ran to target for a 4th of July outfit and I noticed sandals in the woman’s section as I was zooming by…. I glanced over at the girl’s shoes and they had basically the same version.  I am a 6 1/2 in woman’s and a 5 in girl’s… the woman’s sandal was like $23 and the girl’s on sale for $12… A-mazing.  Then I thought… a deal this good can’t be perfect… maybe they’re too narrow… nope at least I didn’t think so… maybe they’d give me blisters… nope they didn’t…. they were actually pretty comfortable.  AND I saw another girl (my boyfriend’s cousin on his mom’s side’s cousin from his dad’s side – you follow that?)… so I saw her (she’s 12) and she had the SAME sandals but in white!!!  Maybe I’m that crazy lady at the BBQs that chase children down to tell them I have the same sandals.  IN FACT, my 11 year old niece told me once that her friend had the same sneakers as I did!!!  Which makes total sense because they were $40 at Sports Authority in the girl’s section.  (notice the red toes for the 4th of July)  I apologize for my poor phone camera… my phone is from 2010.


The Syracuse Nationals is happening this weekend…  that means for the 3rd year in a row I get to feel the people booing at my 2003 Elantra while I drive down my street to my apartment.  They don’t ACTUALLY boo at my car, but I am sure they have absolutely no interest in my car blocking the view of a nice hot rod.  It’s shameful to drive my poor car this weekend every year.  People put up lawn chairs up and down the street I live on to see them parade around.  (It’s loud at night with all the vroomming).  Don’t get me wrong though, I love to see it and I am proud that Syracuse has this annually.

Tonight I am going to Funny Bone and seeing the comedian Junior from the Steve Harvey show.  I didn’t specifically want to go see this particular comedian… we’re celebrating my cousin’s birthday and she’s driving from Rochester for the evening.  Having the mall expand and add all these new restaurants and entertainment stuff has been wonderful!  You wanna go go carting, bowling, comedy show, laser tag, mirror maze, movie, imax, and like 20 plus restaurants it’s there and I live like SO close (I am kinda sad we’re moving like 15 minutes further away from it).  SO it should be a good time?  I kinda think that all comedians will be funny… we’ll see… I’ll give my review tomorrow.


Omg I love him.  Just free as can be in the summer.  NF loves the mall lately… he asks me, “mom, we go in the car, we drive to the mall?”  He told me his pajamas were “comfy and warm.”  WHAT!  and he insists everything is green.  I love him soooooo much – he’s just surprising me every day Idk what he’ll tell me next.

Cheeky Monkey Tomato Garlic Dipping Oil: Holy Moley.  Cheeky Monkey Foods have a kiosk in the new part of the Syracuse Mall, Destiny USA, formally known (but still known by me) as Carousel Mall.  You can try samples there of this amazzzzing dipping oil.  I LOVE to dip bread into flavored oil… it’s like my favorite thing to do.  I still really do love Pastabilities Spicy Tomato Oil too.  This tastes different though.  Cheeky Monkey is strangely sweet and also spicy all at the same time.  Check it out here.

Drunk Uncle: I am pretty positive he’s my favorite part of SNL like ever.


Dennis Rodman Fired From All-Star Celebrity Apprentice:  And why did he get fired??  Because they miss spelled Melania’s name on their ad which is the name of the product they were promoting.  Aint no body got time for spell check!!


Chelsea Houska’s Hair: I’m always lovin this girl’s hair.


Andy Dick’s Dance Monday night on DWTS: WHAT!?  Yeah.  I liked it.  And I cried.  It had to have been the song choice, Hallelujah.  That song alone can make you burst into tears.  I was weeping riiight along with Carrie Ann Inaba… but Nicholas wasn’t into it and he tried ruining the moment by playing with his toys that play long obnoxious songs.  I didn’t let that distract me though – I stayed focused and I let the tears flow.  Writing that felt ridiculous, but that’s really how it all happened.


This picture: I found this picture on Going the Distance blog.  It makes me happy.
