Wednesday Thoughts

Well, I already wrote a pretty long post last night and some of you probably haven't even had a chance to read it yet, so I'll do something different here today and make it a quick post so you can move on to the last post which has some of my best art work to date. ;)

I thought I'd share a few things about myself today that you might not know:

1. I think it's inhumane to expect someone to sleep in pajama pants. They get all twisted up and hot! I honestly don't know how anyone can sleep in those things.

2. My favorite show these days is Raising Hope. Have you guys ever seen it? It's surprisingly hilarious and occasionally heart warming.

3. My go-to movie when I'm feeling down is Fools Rush In. I could watch it over and over again. What's yours?

4. What really makes me fall for a guy is how nice he is. Kindness really matters to me. Especially when I expect him to be upset and he is kind instead. Totally wins me over. I've said that to guys before and they say, "yeah right, women like jerks." Ladies, what do you think? Back me up?

5. It really baffles me when people do emoticons backwards. Doesn't everyone agree that a smiley face goes like this :) and not this (:!? It's so weird!

6. I've been sick for eight full days now. I'm not saying I was on death's doorstep or anything, but being that sick makes you feel really withdrawn from life. Now that I'm starting to get better, I'm looking at my life differently, like I'm joining a show already in progress and noticing the problems with it. It's been an interesting experience and has motivated me to make some goals. Secret goals though, sorry. Can't divulge them yet.

Happy Wednesday. Now go read my post about road trips, k?

Don't know anything about Raising Hope.
My go-to movie is the Kill Bill duo.
Have you considered a tsp of Bragg's apple cider vinegar at ea. meal to get better? It sounds like your body is too acidic right now & not able to heal.

My new fave show might be "Mad Love" go-to movie is "You've Got Mail"...and YES, kindness from a guy is HUGE!!!!!!

1. I LOVE pajama pants! They're so comfy, like individual blankets for my legs.
2. I've been watching a lot of Numb3rs lately (on Netflix), but like what I've seen of Raising Hope. I also like pronouncing the 3 in Numb-three-ers.
3. I also love "You've Got Mail" for a pick-me-up movie. Or something silly like "The Princess Diaries" or something.
4. YES!! Numero uno of things that make me fall for a guy is kindness! Who needs jerks?! I want to be treated respectfully!!!
5. Agreed. :P
6. That STINKS! And I hope you feel better soon!

1. Shorts are better. Satin is best (but only in winter it gets hot)

2. I live in a cave... Fools rush in... I'll have to rush out and get it!

3. Love period romances the most, but for a pick me up, Uncorked w/ Minnie Driver, Cosby himself, Leap Year.

4. Still figuring that out. Not sure how Andy & I got together. I like tall, slender, musically inclined, witty. I seem to have been drawn to endearingly awkward.

5. I know what you mean!(:

6. haha! So true. But it doesn't make me set goals. I just like watching. Hope you're totally better soon!

Loved the Scottish festival pics and the family portrait in raincoats...

Kindness rocks! And so do pajama pants. I don't know how people sleep in pajama slips or dresses or whatever they are.

Elizabeth Downie said...

Hahaha, you mean a nightgown? Or nightshirt? I'm
Telling you, it's the only way! Pajama pants are way too hot and tangly.

Kathy said...

I'm totally with you on the backwards emoticons. I'm always really confused when I see that too!

However, I can NOT sleep in a nightgown. I wake up in the middle of the night and suddenly feel freaked out that I don't have pants on. Pajama pants/shorts are the only way for me to feel comfortable.

Hope you feel better soon! (:

I couldn't agree with you more on how nice it is when a guy is kind! It's sooo soo important, way more important than looks (although looks is an added bonus!). I hope you feel better soon!

I love my flannel pajama pants because I'm almost always cold! (Yep, I live in the Sonoran Desert, but our air conditioning works REALLY well!)

I can watch Disney's live action Cinderella musical, starring Brandy, over and over again and NEVER get tired of it!

I'm completely with you about men who are kind. I don't understand women who fall for jerks...such a sad thing. I'm very blessed to be married to the kindest man I've ever known...but my dad comes close! :)

Yes! The backwards smiley face looks sooo weird!
