Random Tuesday Thoughts

randomtuesday

It's Tuesday already? Where did the rest of the week go? Two posts ago, I was tossing out Random Thoughts... which means I either had a week of boringness, or a week of busyness.

One of the problems with having a Monday holiday is that you spend the rest of the week trying to figure out what day it is. Your week equilibrium gets knocked out of whack.

What is it in our minds that tells us that it is weird if "old people" have a dirty sense of humor? Is it that whole "my parents NEVER have sex" mentality? :)

The governor of Utah, John Huntsman, accepted an Obama-nomination (ha! I love how those sound together…) to be the new ambassador to China. Awesome pick, if you ask me, since Gov. Huntsman knows Mandarin already. And since he’s a savvy businessman, he’ll be very, very smart where business relations are concerned. (And then I fully expect him to run for President in 2016.)(You saw it here first!)

I want a live-in maid, like Alice on “The Brady Bunch”. She would be at home all the time, except one night a week when she would go bowling with Sam. All meals prepared, house kept spotless…

I won a lottery ticket over at Sprite’s Keeper. Since I live in a no-gambling state, I’ve never had a scratch ticket before. When the ticket arrived, I felt particularly sinful as I scratched the stuff off to see if I was a winner. And Utah influence ruled—I was not a winner. Sniff. (Now I know where the phrase “scratch and sniff” comes from.)

And now I have to get back to a workday I'd rather not have... Tuesdays after holiday weekends are always awful. Sigh.

I had the most wonderful dream the other day where I won the lottery and I bought my own house and did charity work for a living. I have a very charitable subconscious, apparently.

It's my summer so my next three months are going to be all out of whack. I can scarcely remember what day of the week it is!

Not knowing what day it is is pretty much a normal state of existence with me. *sigh*

oh alice .... there just aren't enough servant minded people like that anymore.

I love the scratch-n-sniff idea. That's a good one. A live in maid would be nice. And I'm sad that Huntsman is leaving... he's been an awesome Governor!

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

I so want a live in maid too!

Heather said...

lol at the scratch and sniff origin. If you find a maid like Alice who works for virtually no money, let me know if she has a sister who would want to come live with us in Brooklyn, I could definitely go for some help around here!

Kristina P. said...

I am so with you on the Monday holiday thing! But it makes for a nice short work week.

I am Harriet said...

Where would Carol B. be without Alice? What a life!

Kat said...

I never know what day it is until I start writing my blog...if it is before RTT, then it is monday..if it is after wordless wed then it is Thursday... Friday is on it's own.

Sprite's Keeper said...

You know I still have three scratch off tickets that have not been claimed?
I keep emailing them and they're not claiming them! I should just scratch them myself, shouldn't I?

C.B. Jones said...

I am fully aware of the fact that my folds still do it. No many how many times i hit my self in the head to do away with that bit of information, It remains.

Lisa said...

We ALL need an Alice. EVERY mom of more than 1 kid needs NEEDS an Alice. Even some moms of only one kid could use an Alice. Alice rocks.

GreenJello said...

Alice is like Santa. Wonderful beyond words, but a creature of imagination. Wah!

C.B., unlike your folks, mine are still virgins.

It always screws me up when Doctor is home on an odd day. Tuesdays are always his days off, so when the pharmacy is closed Monday & he works Tuesday, I spend the entire day thinking it's Wednesday. Go figure.

Julie@Momspective said...

I plan on being a SUPER dirty old person, so make sure to keep in touch :)

I bought a lotto ticket for the first time in about 6 years I think, which means I'm totally going to win.

I just picked up a sandwich at my local deli and there was a nice looking older gentleman (late 60's maybe) looking at the adult magazines while he waited for his order. I think he really was reading the articles!

I would feel awkward having a live-in, I would feel close to her/him and feel obligated to include them in family stuff, but then feel awkward that the person I pay is there...I could never tell if Carol was close with Alice or not...I felt like she should be closer.

The holiday weekend hangover is a togh one to shake. Good luck.

otin said...

Alice definitely was unappreciated, that's for sure!

kyooty said...

I want an Alice too, oh and some free money :0

♥ bfs~"Mimi" ♥ said...

Your post made me laugh!! And I know what you mean about a Monday holiday throwing everything off. At least my trash will run as usual. I don't mean my trash will actually run. It's pretty dead, or at least smells dead. What I mean is, oh, never mind!

Hey, thank you for such nice words today!!

Frogs in my formula said...

I totally agree--you expect to go back to work feeling refreshed, instead you feel braindead. At least I do. I was useless today, and I reckon I will be the rest of the week (did I really just use the word reckon?)

I want a maid too. SO bad.

Casey said...

That's exactly it, old people should never have sex. I'm pretty sure they never have in all of their days. I dunno. That comment was targeted at my post from last week, wasn't it? Ha. I just don't want to THINK about old people (or any people, really) getting it on. That's all.

I'll go halvsies on a live in maid? Joint custody?

Keely said...

I want a live-in maid, too! But I don't know where I'd put here. It's quite a small house.

It would have to be a very SMALL live-in maid.

AS Amber said...

I'd actually register to vote if Huntsman threw his hat in the presidential ring!

And even though there's only 4 days this week it's already DRAGGING! I think I'm more excited for the kids to be out of school than they are!

Mrsbear said...

I would so love an Alice. I would build a room for her, since my meatloaf leaves something to be desired.

Are old people even allowed to have a sense of humor, it doesn't just shrivel up in your 60s? ;) I hope to be able to make all my children really uncomfortable well in to my old age!

Eighty MPH Mom said...

Oooh, I want "Alice" to come and live with me too - wouldn't that be wonderful??

If you ever need another scratcher ticket, you let me know - I will gladly send you one. We have lots of them here in CA.

And yes, my whole week is thrown off by Monday being a holiday - it happens every time!

piecemeal people said...

1.) I've been asking myself since Monday, "what day is it again?" Monday night I sat the kids down to watch "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" (because in my mind it was Sunday) and we were all, "Wheel of Fortune? What the..."

2.) As my parents get older, I find myself hoping that they ARE having sex. Maybe that makes me disgusting, but I'd feel better if I knew they were contently married and not old and bored.

3.) I want a live-maid also. But only if she also works as a live-in masseuse. And only if my husband does not find her attractive.

4.) Scratch and sniff - I LOL'd!
