Random and Stuff

- If you were feeling guilty about that bag of miniature Snickers with Almonds that you ate right before Halloween, you can stop now. I opened a new bag yesterday and learned that there are only 14 bars in a bag. If you translate that to full-size candy bars, that's only like 3 or maybe 4. You aren't nearly as big of a pig as you thought you were.

- The deer are trying to attack my car. I'M ON TO YOU DEER--Stop hanging out at the side of the road and trying to time your jog across for the moment when I'm going to come passing through. I refuse to help you with your suicide mission. Just leave me and my car alone, thank you very much.

- If you give a Toddler one of her favorite vegetables (mini corn) and it's been doused in some sort of fiery Chinese sauce, she will eat a piece, scream bloody murder, eat another piece, scream bloody murder again, then eat yet another piece and scream bloody murder yet again. You should know that she can't resist the miniature corn goodness, even if she knows it's going to hurt her mouth. Not nice, Daddy!

- If your fantasy football team is struggling and you need a little pick-me-up, just schedule yourself to play me next week. I have an amazing ability to motivate oponents into having their best game of the season.

- Is it just me or is it physically impossible for the Steelers and Penguins to play well at the same time? Penguins in last place = Steelers SuperBowl victory. Steelers go 8-8 = Penguins in the playoffs.

- If I give Alexis a cup of blueberry applesauce and Daddy is not home, she will eat every bite without dropping so much as a speck. If Daddy is home, then she will somehow manage to spread the applesauce love all over her face, shirt, arms, table, chair, and walls.

  1. Hahaha. I hate suicidal deer. And I can't blame Alexis: the mini corn draws me in the same way. I wouldn't be able to resist either. (Though I probably would be making weird breathing noises rather than screaming my head off.)

  2. She must really love mini corn! Punkin loves the half ears of corn. In fact, I haven't been able to eat mine in months because she always steals it off my plate. I think, though, that hot sauce would deter her.

  3. I do feel better about the candy now. Thanks for clearing that up. And painting with applesauce is one of the joys of toddlerhood. I suspect daddies encourage this.

  4. That last one is one of the universe's great mysteries - though Karen may be right in her suspicion that daddies encourage its use as a moisturizing mask.

    Too cute about the hot sauce!

  5. Alright, I wanna see the mini corn video!
    P.S. There really is a tree that hangs from the ceiling?! I would totally look into that if I wasn't so pressed for time - and lazy.

  6. I can relate to just about all of this! Thanks for making me feel better about all the Halloween candy I just ate! ;) Thanks for stopping by my blog! I love to meet other out in bloggyland - especially fellow Pittsburgh fans!

  7. Not the Mama--Six more deer tried to force me to participate in their suicide games today. SIX!

    Madame Queen--I suggest whatever sauce is on Pad Thai. It worked for my husband.

    Karen--I think you're right about the applesauce painting. While Moms are all, "Arrr . . . I'm going to have to clean that up" Dads think to themselves, "That looks like fun! Can I help?"

    Driving with the brakes on--Karen is definately right. Dads encourage so many crazy things, applesauce moisturizer is certainly one of them.

    Jen--I'll have to work on video. Sadly I didn't think of that at the time, even though my camera was in my purse.

    Pam--Anybody who is a Steelers body is OK by me!

  8. Mr Husband is kinda mean to make her scream for corn.
