Random Friday

It's Friday and you know what that means! More randomness! Now with more !!!!!!

  • I find myself commenting "I have that in the TBR" WAY too often lately. I need to get to reading or give some books away.

  • I have three review books sitting here, reviews undone, books unread. I need to get to reading on those too.

  • And speaking of comments, I've been replying to some people via email (LOVE that!) and some people in the comments section on the blog, and I'm starting to get confused.

  • I joined the cult. I bought The 30 Day Shred. Now I just need to take the cellophane off the DVD.

  • I really want these shoes. Really really. I might go buy them.

  • I want one of these for my birthday. Do you think that being pink would keep the Pirate from stealing it to use as a rope? (Seriously. If you're one of the people who read my blog who buys me a birthday gift, I really do.)

  • I'll be single parenting for part of this weekend. Is it bad that the activity the Pirate and I are most looking foward to is our trip to TARGET. (See above mention of the shoes.)

  • I learned to make buttonholes this week. They are so much easier than I thought!

  • The Baby Laptop is here! I named her Frances. If you can correctly identify why, I'll send you a prize. (No idea what, but hey, a prize is a prize, right?) If more than one person tells me, I'll draw for a winner. Contest ends whenever I feel like it, so comment early.

    What is your random thought for today?



  1. Stimulate the economy and buy the shoes. The tape measure being pink won't stop the Pirate from using it as a rope. I can't figure out why you named your baby laptop Frances - I guess I'm slow today.

  2. I wish everyone had their profile set to let you email them back. It's SO convenient.

    Fun shoes too! Such a summery color!

  3. I'm with Kathy - buy the shoes! I'm stumped on Frances, too. Is it from France? And I thought it was pink? Did you not go pink? Oh, and Mike (my laptop) wants to see a picture...he's thinking of asking her out. ;-)

  4. Frances the Badger?

  5. Congrats on the laptop (and happy early birthday!). I'll guess the first thing that came to mind - the children's book Bread and Jam for Frances. Pink laptop = jam? Of course my guess has to relate to a kids book. : )

  6. I've been trying to purge my shelves of books that I have read and will never ever read again or books that I haven't read and have no interest in reading. I thought about doing a giveaway on my blog, but I hate saying--"I hated these books and now I'm going to pass them on to you." Million Little Pieces anyone?? :)

    Frances huh? My car's name is Lola Sunshine. Her predecessor was Sheila Bubbles (we called her Mrs. Bubbles).

    I love Target--enjoy your trip!!

    [read-a-thon, read-a-thon, read-a-thon]

  7. I dropped in to congratulate you on your Splash award from Alyce over AT HOME WITH BOOKS but found as well a great blog and super posts...I will be back...shall see if there is a place to follow..thanks and congrats!

  8. Haven't a clue why you named your laptop that but I like it ;) I have so many books that I need to get isn't even funny. What can you do but read and read some more? LOL!

  9. Congrats on the buttonholes :) And the laptop. I'm waiting on my new laptop right now, too.

  10. I'm just dropping by to let you know that I've given you an award:

  11. Buy the shoes-they are perfect for upcoming season although here in Iowa it is snowing today so it is hard to think about bare toes!

  12. I say that a lot too, Lisa, about having the mentioned book in my TBR. I need to spend some quality time with my books tomorrow, I think!

    It would probably confuse me too, commenting both ways. :-) Hopefully you'll settle into what works best for you.

    Did you end up buying the shoes?

  13. I haven't heard of the 30 day shred. You'll have to let us know how it turns out. I think the pink will probably keep him from it - my husband wouldn't want to use anything pink.

    About the Frances question, I'm guessing Frances Hodges Burnett - The Secret Garden. It's the first Frances that came to mind.

  14. LOL about saying you have that in the TBR, I do that all the time, too. :) I don't think I'll be giving any books away, though!

  15. Everyone, I BOUGHT THE SHOES. Now tell the snow to go away.

    Trish, that "here, I hate this one!" problem is why you should join Paperbackswap! (still working out read-a-thon details!)

    Bingo, thanks for stopping by. I love new followers.

    Amanda, the buttonholes were SO MUCH easier than I thought they would be. I watched a little youtube video first.
