Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

Friday! What a wacky week its been!


The week started off warm... I'm talking WARM!
It was in the high 60's
Look - I even ran in SHORTS!... in January!!!!

& now?  Its snowy, icy & schools are closed!
I swear - I think Jesus is coming soon the way this weather is
Him or polar bears
whoever gets here first


Another coworker bites the dust....
Got a phone call this morning that she's been in the bathroom all night long with the trots
(I love that she cares enough to give me details)
(... not really...)

So I've gone on my usual Lysol-the-office-spree this morning

I have my usual Lysol High right now
So if my fragments dont make sense - that's the reason


I hate my new car in snow & ice

I've always had a 4-wheel drive
& its needed where we live
Country, HILLY, CURVY roads

why didnt I get a 4-wheel drive?

I slide everywhere in it
lesson learned


So we now have a "deer jinx" going on....
The Hubs said the other day, "I havent seen any deer lately"
I told him to bite his tongue & I cant believe he just said that
I knew the jinx had started

Literally, the next day, a baby deer runs out in front of our car
we stop in time... to see another baby deer flirting with the idea of running out into the road
we ended up stopping & flashing lights to cars coming the other way
... he made it across the street & it was very Animal Planet Nature Show seeing the two babies meet back up.... the one was waiting for his brother on the other side of the road
...they trotted off in happiness together...
I'm sure singing a Disney song

& then Thursday, 
what happens to me driving into work?
A whole FAMILY of deer shooting across the HIGHWAY... in the pitch dark

The deer jinx is in full force
I'm on full alert


So all the Les Miserables 25th Anniversary videos have been removed off of YouTube!!!!
I am so sad about that!!!
I literally would watch/listen to them every day!

Apparently word is they started removing them when the movie was nominated for all the awards
& word is, its because they didnt want anyone comparing the singers from the movie to the 25th anniversary singers... who are A-MAZ-ING!!!!

Alfie Boe... the best Jean VanJean EVER!!!

They dont even have the 25th Anniversary soundtrack :( ... tears....
but they do sell the video

Guess I'm going to have to buy the video to watch it over & over
& no disrespect to my boyfriend Hugh Jackman - who is awesome
but I know better singing when I hear it
(& of course, I'll be buying the movie Les Miserables as soon as it comes out too)


Got my oil changed this week (on my slick sliding car)
& was totally surprised when the person doing it was a young lady
Probably 18 or 19

I've never seen a lady work in an oil changing place
.... I was impressed....

Woman's lib still moves on :)


All you So You Think You Can Dance fans...
did you hear?  
Allison & Twitch are engaged!!!
Perfect dancing couple... going to have amazing dancing babies

But if you watch Bunheads, you'll see some good SYTYCD alumni
Kent & Jeanine!!!
2 of my favorites!

& another SYTYCD alum?
Mandy Moore in a flash mob breast feeding mom in "The New Normal"
They're popping up everywhere!


Funny of the day:

Anyone else relate with this?


TV Time:

The Carrie Diaries:  I'm really liking this show!  All the 80's flashbacks & Carrie Bradshaw!
30 Rock:  Cant believe this & the Office are leaving... its up to Park & Recreation to keep the funny going
New Girl:  Did anyone else freak out at 'the kiss'... Nick is awesome!!!
The Bachelor:  Tierra is the new Courtney..... insane-ness at its finest
The Mindy Project:  The more I watch, the more I like this show.  Love seeing old Office peeps
Private Practice: (Yeah this is a week old) - but loved the series finale.  Happy endings all around
The Following: Never thought I'd love a Kevin Bacon show.  This is a cross between hating & loving it.  It freaks me out, but so I cant turn away
Vampire Diaries:  Anyone else feel bad for Klaus & Rebecca?... vampires need love too


Hope everyone has a Fabulous Flu-free Friday full of Lysol! :)


  1. SYTYCD alumni on Glee - Marko, Melanie and ALEX! They are in Rachel's dance class in NYC. I swear I think the only reason I'm watching Glee is a chance to see Alex.

  2. The weather here in Chicago has been crazy, too. I almost feel like I'm in a sci-fi movie.

    So cool that you had a woman mechanic! I think I've only ever seen that in the movies.

    I'm so sad about 30 Rock and The Office, too. But...Community will be back on and I hope they haven't canceled Up All Night.

    I've been toying with the idea of watching The Following. Maybe I'll give it a shot.

  3. P.S. - The Mindy Project is awesome!

  4. I don't watch any of those shows you listed. Maybe I need to check some of them out.

    The desk chair was too funny!

  5. Girl...don't even get me started on about a whack job! EEK! Of course, she makes me want to tune in even more! Oh...guess who's coming to concert in ATL in June, I think? New Kids on the Block, Boys II Men, and 98 Degrees! I may just have to bite the bullet and go!

  6. TVD: I do feel bad for Klaus and Rebekah...I'm digging the Stefan/Rebekah thing though. I really, really love Damon and Elena together. Ian Somerhalder. Whew mercy. LOL

  7. Did you watch the second episode of The Following? When E.A.Poe JUMPED off the shelf (well, that's what I THOUGHT he did until I reround it and looked again) I nearly jumped out of my skin!!

  8. Oh, and here's MORE comments: Front wheel or preferably 4-wheel drive is a must if there's any chance of snow.

    We had a warm up at the beginning of the week too - - - it was in the 20's. And now we're a little chilly again too - - - was -12 this morning and has now heated all the way up to -2.

  9. Our Florida weather is psycho too, but thankfully no snow. I don't think I'd do well in snow. Hate that your co-workers are sick and hope you don't get to Lysol those germs.

    No driving in ice for me! I did it once in a borrowed car in Alaska and did a 360 at a stop sign,....n.e.v.e.r. again!

    We have the deer problem here.....a big buck ran out in front of us and we hit it a few years ago and thankfully we were in the truck. Got lots of damage and the deer ran off!

    I've never seen a girl changing oil, but good for her! At least she has a job.

    I missed that flash mob video......Tierra is the meaning of the word crazy.....I wonder why guys never see that?

  10. I am sorry to say that I only watch one of the shows on the list, The Carrie Diaries. But I do watch Bunheads! :)

  11. Deer are truly crazy creatures. It seems like they just wait for the car to get close.

    That is such crazy weather!

  12. I do not like sitcoms, but I saw the episode of New Normal the other day while I was getting my nails done. I saw that flash mob and had to laugh because I nursed both of my kids (they never had formula...and I even worked full time). I didn't notice Mandy!
