Totally Random Thoughts For December 5th

So….yes, it’s been awhile since I’ve blogged, but I’m here now and let’s just concentrate on the positive, okay?   Last week my son was home from college, I saw The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (an awesome movie), I celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary and I saw Kim and Kayne at the mall (check the Instagram pics), so it was a pretty rocking week.  Today it’s December 5th, a random day, and there’s not much going on in my world.  I haven’t even started with Christmas.  It’s a perfect day to answer a few random prompts from Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop.

What were you blogging about a year ago today?  What has changed?  A year ago today I was answering another Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop prompt “What was the last thing you bought.”  I wrote about buying my Louis Vuitton Kusama Speedy while in France.  I’m not in France anymore (boo-boo), but I still have the purse.  In fact I have since learned that in just one year my purse has tripled in value -not that I ever intend on selling it!  It’s an awesome purse, but an even funnier story about how I bought it; if you haven’t read it, you should.

A hobby that you would pursue, if you were the type to pursue hobbies. I would learn how to knit so that I could make clothes for Chili Dawg.  He already has a snazzy tie, but he could use a nice sweater to go with it.  And I guess that I could knit for people too.  People who wore snazzy ties.



A trend you’re not much a fan of.   This list could go on forever because I’m very opinionated, but just off the top of my head….

Brussel sprouts.  Aren’t these the same vegetables that our parents used to make us eat and we hated them for it?  Now they are on every restaurant menu and splattered across every Pinterest board.  Even roasted and glazed in a balsamic reduction and tossed with bacon, they are still brussel spouts.  They were yucky then and they are yucky now.

Moustaches. Besides during the month of Movember, why are moustaches on every tee shirt, coffee mug and key chain?  Who decided that this was “a thing?”


Harem pants.  Please Hammer, don’t.

 Cropped shirts.  Presumably to go with the Harem Pants?

And that is what I think about on a random December 5th.

    The mustache phenomenon is so strange! I don’t get it either. But I would definitely love to see some homemade sweaters on that pooch! Hop to it!
