Duke Duke Duke Duke of Earl Duke Duke Duke of Earl…

I am just grinding along today. Blahg entry? Say what? But I don’t have anything to talk about really. An exploratory expotition to a new section of the Washtenaw Border to Border trail was kind of a fizzle and a trip to the Jackson Rd. Meijer was a nightmare. By the time the GG suggested kayaking it was noon and I was sorta feeling a little slodgy like if I could just apparate myself and my kayak down to the river, I’d go, but the schlepping and clothes-changing and stuff was too much for me. He really just wanted to sit in the river and read anyway and I had some yucky tax paperwork tasks to get done this afternoon that I have been putting off for way too long. NPJane had a much better day than I did. She was spotted over at the Dairy Queen with a huuuge smile on her face!

I have plenty of random blahg post ideas rolling around in my head and here are some of them. Who knows which ones will ever see the light of day.

  • How ANY EMPLOYER (yes, I am shouting) can think that asking a prospective employee for their FACEBOOK PASSWORD is a good thing. Really? Sure, what the heck, here’s my online banking password too. C’mon people…
  • The Trillium Bandit…
  • My thoughts on the value of liberal arts degrees and why ALL of our kids shouldn’t be encouraged pushed into STEM careers whether they want them or not.
  • (((((My addiction to Angry Birds.)))))
  • Wormholes to generations of long ago.
  • Memories of playing the card game Spit (was that really the name?) in the Old Cabin and hearing songs like Duke of Earl on the radio in between way too many ads and newscasts.
  • What is this Hunger Games mania? Should I download the book(s)? Will I like them (I do like young adult fiction)? Or will they freak me out?
  • Do we need a CG50 movie rating?
  • How nervous I am about going to a high-school mini-reunion next weekend. Even though I have been to one before and am on Facebook with some of the people who’ll be there and even had a wonderful lunch with one of them in the interim. How many ways can we say “introvert”?
  • Rocking along to Duke of Earl as I was leaving the Plum Market today.
  • (((((My addiction to Angry Birds Space.)))))

Enough. My mouse will be here in a bit for a surprise dinner. That means I kept asking “What do you want me to cook for dinner?” She finally replied, “Surprise me.” I doubt she’ll be very surprised (and she wasn’t <grin>). Add to above list: “Why are my kids more creative cooks than I am, especially when the only things they seemed to eat as children were things like Kraft Macaroni and Cheese or Spaghettios”?

And I think I will download Duke of Earl. Click over to YouTube if you have no idea what I’m talking about. You know you want to. I wouldda wanted to be his duchess but I think I was eight years old when this song happened.

Good night and happy flinging!

    Angry birds–haha. I’ve tried it and I’m terrible! I would resist giving my FB password to anyone! What did you surprise her with?

  2. Margaret Says:

    Oh, I LOVED Hunger Games! I didn’t expect to.

  3. jay Says:

    SPIT, Spit, spit. Loved that game.
    The Space Needle has some huge red slingshot thing associated with Angry Birds hanging down it’s side.

  4. Pooh Says:

    Is Spit the game where you slapped each others hands, er cards?

  5. kayak woman Says:

    Yes. It’s just about the only card game (or any game) that I was ever any good at.

    LOVED The Hunger Games trilogy. I highly recommend it. My husband was fanatical about Angry Birds for a while, and then all of a sudden he got totally bored with it. He still plays game after game after game of BeJeweled, though. Every day.
