A Tour of Random

I love my Office calendar.

But I need kind of need a new one….

Ginger likes to write on pictures with Sharpies and send them to me. This one involves yet another inside joke that no one else will ever find funny.

This is what the inside of my fridge looks like as of 10:30 PM this evening. I only took one thing out before taking this picture, but I'll never tell what....

It's been pointed out to me recently that I have quite a compulsion when it comes to buying (and hoarding) boxes of cereal. But that's not the half of it....

Hey, at least they're all different kinds! I like variety. (Until I get tired of it.)

This is the cheap little DVD player I bought at Walmart for practically nothing. Consequently, I've found it's a noisy little bugger. However, I've discovered that if I push on the DVD player just a little bit and give it some pressure, the buzzing instantly quiets down. The solution? A precarious stack of books now keep the whirring to a minimum so I can just be lulled to sleep with nothing but the sound of Stars Hollow. Thanks, giant stack of books!

I went to Houston this weekend. Show of hands as to who's surprised to find I still haven't unpacked? Yeah, that's what I thought.

Oh, check THIS mess out! I got a friendly little letter from my cable company about an upgrade to my DVR. 'Great!' I thought. 'Who doesn't love a free upgrade?' Well ME, actually, upon reading that lovely bolded sentence in the middle of the page. What. The. Crap. I'm about to lose all my recordings AND I only have until March 25th to watch them or "back them up?" No ma'am. Not okay.

And finally....

My most recent DVD purchase! Heck to the yes, my friend.

Heck to the yes.

No wonder my cereal options were such a disappointment! -m

I'm loving the purple nail polish. And I STILL haven't seen HSM3. I have a feeling that if we still lived in the same town, that would not be true.

Thanks for the randomness tour. Always a pleasure!

1. It looks like I am saying "Schrute Rules." I have no qualms with this statement.
2. 10 bucks says I know what you took out of your fridge.
3. Your ghetto dvd player is amazing. Has dad already sent you a link for a good but cheap dvd player?
4. That is a lot of cereal. I'm wondering if you don't have some semblance of OCD - hoarding or something.
5. I like that you have photographs taped to the shelves you are storing your cereal on.
6. Will you be calling in sick to remedy your DVR situation? That's a lot of Ellen to watch.

your picture of your fridge reminds me of ET. Thank you.

1) did i give you those office magnets?

2) Mystery Crisper! Mystery Crisper! :)
(and you took the bean dip out, didn't you, ho? Jesus is STILL watchin you.)

3) HSM3 = best on the big screen!

@Katie: Yes, you would have seen HSM3 by now! Probably multiple times....

1. Schrute DOES rule.
2. You told me your guess. You were wrong.
3. Dad has not sent my links yet! I'm kind of surprised. :)
4. I don't think anyone who has ever met me would call me OCD about ANYTHING. It probably has more to do with...laziness.
5. That's the FRIDGE, smartie.
6. FALSE. I don't record Ellen. I do, however, have a ton of episodes of "Heroes," "Priveleged," and "Grey's Anatomy" to catch up on.

@ Julie:
1. Heck yes you gave me those magnets!! :D
2. No beandip. My old roommate probably ATE IT ALL!
3. Agreed. Ever should see Zac Efron 30 feet tall...the way he was meant to be seen.

Man, I can't wait to have HSM3. I'm hoping for some special trilogy pack, though.
Oh and that not-telling-what's-in-the-fridge thing is going to keep me up at night.
