Random Tuesday - Philosophical Edition

It's time once again to follow Keely the UnMom in her quest for Tuesday Randomness. She's been on vacation for a while now, but the guest bloggers have been kinda cool, so go check it out. Today I'm actually getting this done on Tuesday, yeah for me! So let's start this wheel a rollin' and see where we go.

Moving sucks! Putting all my stuff in boxes and hauling it somewhere else just disturbs my sense of being. Please note that I've done this a lot. At one point I owned a pickup truck because I NEVER knew when I would be needing to load my crap into it and take off down the highway. Not only that, but I sold off most of my stuff in 2004 and moved what was left from North America to Europe. Perhaps I get extra credit for this moving thing.

The summer weather is just about perfect right now. Sunny and 25c/75f most days... ah! Cooling down in the evening... Glorious!

It's all about the De Do Do Do De Da Da Da!

Why is it when a group of women work together on a common cause, very often it ends in cattiness of some kind? In the workplace, organizations, volunteers, clubs, all fall victim to this stupidity.

Someone please tell the sweet, retired neighbor lady that always wants to talk in the morning as we meet near the communal trash can that I don't have time to chat for 20 minutes because I'm already running late for work. I really feel bad about this because it feels like I spend the whole conversation trying to pull away from someone who is probably horribly lonely and would just like to have some human contact. Actually deep inside of me I hope that if I am in her situation in my old age that someone will talk with me.

I'm really enjoying that tomorrow night is a book club for a book I've already read. You know what? Next month is the same way! I'm able to use my free time to read what I want! Hmmm... Photography magazine, YEA!

Speaking of free time, my arm is finally back to 90%, maybe I can consider playing my NEW guitar which I've barely touched. But dang it, now I need to carve out some FREE TIME!

I will leave you today with some philosophical thoughts from The Resident.

Hmm I typed all of this up and began to tag the thing, only to find that it doesn't fit to any of the "normal" tag cloud. NOW THAT IS RANDOM!

Isn't that funny that we always end up in book clubs reading something we probably wouldn't read outside of the club? I have one starting in September, maybe I'll start reading it now, LOL!

Great random thoughts!

Random Tuesday. What would we do without Keely?

Happy moving (yuck) I think we all know how I feel on that subject.

I am Harriet said...

I never want to have to move again. Yuck! I'm gray enough as is.


Shelly said...

I agree about moving; it stinks! I had to move twice in one year. Hope you get your stuff all organized and put away in a timely manner (I still have boxes in the garage two years later).


Jan said...

I hate moving too. So much so that I've resigned myself to living in our current house until we retire.

I don't know what to tell you about the catty thing. It's one of the reasons I've spent most of my life avoiding large gatherings of women.

Then I started to blog. Go figure.

Not big on moving! Have done it more times in my life than I care to! Next time I am paying someone to do the work!

I'm glad your arm's doing better.

I hate the cattiness women can get among each other, too. Even worse is when I let myself get sucked in!

I hate moving and the furthest I've ever had to do it is across town. I can't imagine lugging all my junk across an ocean. I'd say that wins you some extra brownie points.

I always end up drawn in to conversations with older women. I get impatient sometimes especially when I'm trying to herd the children in to the house. But you're right, I do hope someday when I'm lonely someone will be nice enough to spare me a few minutes of attention. ;)

What is that about women? Men don't do that. Why do women?

Sarah said...

women are just bit&^# and I'm one of them.... we all are at one point I suppose.... HA

Moving is one of the most boring chores out there.

I'm happy that your arm is at 90% now. Play that guitar and enjoy.
