One Word at A Time: Random Things

by SweetMidlife

Lynne here.

So, we have had a lot happening here and we are gearing back up to blogging regularly. I have actually started several posts the last few days, but I can’t keep up the momentum to write an entire coherent post where things make sense altogether. So I am just gonna write a bunch of random thoughts on here that could make an entire post if expounded on. But I can’t seem to be able to do that. So. Here this is.

Nachos are a perfect food because you can eat them at every meal.

A dirty plate is the evidence of nachos eaten.

There are a lot of videos on YouTube of people playing with toys. My kid loves them. He could use that time to play with his own toys.

Tea is a great thing to drink when you want flavor but not extra calories. Of course, if you put milk and sugar in it, you added fat. But it also tastes good. Taste is important.

I am making shrimp and grits for my son and I tonight, but I am making my husband shrimp and rice because he only likes sweet grits.

You remember Flo from “Alice” and she used to say “Kiss My Grits”? I loved her.

A wonderful actor from a 70’s TV show totally tried to throw me shade once, before I even knew that phrase. I was interning at a regional theater, and I was holding the script during a rehearsal of a show that she was doing, in case someone missed a line. We were on break and Leslie was sitting with me, and during the break we were laughing, And this actor stood on the edge of the stage and said “Young ladies, are you here to work or to giggle?” And I, who doesn’t like confrontation, said, “If someone asks for a line, I will give it to them.” And she was nice to me after that. Don’t let people make you look stupid because they are having a bad day. No.

My kitchen window looks right out onto the street and when people walk by I wonder about their lives. I feel nosy sometimes. Like Jimmy Stewart from “Rear Window” and Pearl from “227” who would hang out of her window and talk to people.

Sitting on the chair of the kitchen, writing a blog, Lillian. Points if you get that reference.

I want to have a TV show where Leslie and I just hang out of our windows and talk to people who walk by. Would you watch that?

We are getting rid of cable and doing Netflix and such and I am a little scared. I feel like it’s a break-up. I need to find out how to get my fix of Hallmark movies and TV shows.

I just checked and saw that I can rent “Diagnosis: Murder” on Netflix but not stream it. I miss you already, Dick Van Dyke.

Raisins that come in containers with plastic lids are better than the ones that come in plastic bags inside of boxes. Not scientifically proven. I made that up.

Not as good.

Not as good.

Well. I gotta run. I can get in a few minutes on the elliptical. One more thought: I hope that you have a good day. Write your own random thoughts in the comments.

    I love to people watch at restaurants and malls (but not through my window at home). Sometimes just seeing two men in Guy Harvey and Salt Life T-shirts with douche-flops and Crocs is all I need to know – they one of them uses the word retard and we’re off to the races.

    I hate raisins. Unless they’re covered in chocolate and mixed with movie-theatre popcorn.

    If I could could cable I would in a heartbeat – I went without about three years ago, but we have to have it for the internet now. You will never run out of things to watch. And when you do, watch the Criterion movies on Hulu.

    I would watch that show of you two sitting at the window. Cable or streaming, doesn’t matter.

    Tom Poston once hit on me.

    Have a wonderful tomorrow, both of you!

      Okay, everything before “Tom Poston” hit on me is a blur. Oh, the stories!!!!

      My former roommate also thinks that raisins are evil, though. I mean, she thinks they are the Devil out to ruin good food.

      This is awesome. THANK YOU!

    The “Lillian” reference is gold, Twin Sister.
