Friday Five: Embrace The Randomness

So, this is going to be a short post today folks as I'm over at Tracey's Tavern sharing my very own Drunken Friday tale.  BUT, before you go, I do have a Friday Five to impart.

Five Randomly Random Observations That Came To Me This Past Week
(perhaps the longest Friday Five title ever, btw)

  1. Dieting can be dangerous to your health.  Yes, friends.  I nearly choked on a carrot.  Not once, not twice, but three times whilst eating my salad at lunchtime yesterday. Word to the wise, if you're going to watch what you eat, WATCH what you eat.  It'll help you avoid swallowing sounded vaguely dirty...but whatevs.
  2. Don't make sweeping declarations; they have a way of coming back to bite you.  Earlier this week, I told several people that I was closing to book reviews for indefinite amount of time.  No sooner had the words fell from my lips than I got not one but FOUR requests from authors/editors about books that I would've fallen all over myself to request had I been trolling the review sites that I normally frequent.  Suffice it to say, I'm not closed to reviews.  In fact, I now have more than I can handle, and I LOVE it.
  3. I cannot walk and talk at the same time.  As many of you know, I'm an avid treadmill walker, mostly because it gives me a chance to watch Supernatural reruns without feeling guilty about loafing on the couch to do so.  On Sunday, I decided that level 3 on the machine just wasn't cutting it, so I jacked it up to 4.7 and I was keeping up...that is until my mother called me.  Then, I just about took a header off the thing. Lesson learned, minions. Lesson learned.
  4. I am really a little old lady trapped inside a (cough!) thirty-two (cough!) year-old's body.  I have a friend soon to have a baby and decided that instead of a store bought gift, I was going to make her something...a crocheted baby blanket.  It's looking pretty damn good so far if I do say so myself.  Just call me Granny Karla.
  5. I really kick ass at Jeopardy!  Er...the ones with the little kids.  Pit me against sixth graders (or even celebrities) and I clean up.  Not so much the adults, but I can pass as middle schooler, can't I?
That's it for my list, but what about all you fun friends?  Tell me something random about you.  I'll just be over at Tracey's Tavern getting my drink on...with Your Mom ;)


  1. I see you and I have more in common than first believed. I think dieting is hell (because I diet and never lose a whole pound. I just lose an ounce or two.)

    I also tried my hand at crochet. I ended up with one tight sleeve and one loose one.

    I am also 32 (cough,cough, cough) Ok. Not really.

  2. You're proof of my theory that trying to get fit & healthy is hazardous, and should be avoided at all costs. ;)

  3. oh, i love this post. it's awesome in its randomness and hilarious in its truth.

    speaking of WATCHING what you eat -- mozzarella sticks are so very dangerous for me. i almost always choke on the cheese. but does that stop me from eating them? heck to the no.


Everyone has an opinion. Make yours known, right here. right now!
