A Random List of My Random Life

Let the randomness begin...

  • Every year we have a football pool at Matt's work where you pick one team to win every week. If you're right...you move on...but you cannot use that team again. It's called a suicide pool. I rock at this pool.
  • We started a pool at my work this year where you have to pick the winner of all of the games. I do not rock at this pool. In fact, I suck at this pool.
  • My parents are coming in 9 days! They haven't been to Cleveland in over 2 years and have never seen our house...so I'm really excited!
  • We bought a new guest bed in anticipation of their arrival! Holy crap...bedding is expensive.
  • We're taking them to the Fabulous Food Show to see Bobby Flay!
  • I intend on eating my way through the booths so I'd better start amping up my workouts now to prepare.
  • I'm going to Colorado to visit my brother this month!
  • He wants to go skiing. I want to go, but the last time I went was in Junior High and all I remember doing is falling down the hill...not skiing. Oh, and my skis flying off. I remember that too.
  • I've already started Christmas shopping and I love it. Ah, giving. Tis the season! I can't wait to get out the decorations! I have many, many Hermie items waiting to make their appearance! He wants to be a dentist you know.

  • I have a serious obsession with Hermie. It's a problem.
  • I am finishing up my Christmas list for my mom. I send her a Word document with links to the exact items I want so she doesn't get confused. I love my mama, but picking out gifts for her daughter...not her biggest strength.
  • As I shared with my dear friends Shaina and Lucy on Twitter this morning, I wear a lab coat at work with someone else's name on it. And have for three years. They won't get me one with my own name on it because I'm a contractor. Um, I've worked in the lab longer than the girl whose lab coat I am wearing! And the joke about calling me by the other name...not so funny anymore.
  • Actually, that joke was never funny.
Any random facts you would like to share??

Jorden and Kristin said...

I am so happy there is another Hermie lover out there!
Growing up we had a Wee-Sing-Christmas-Songs book, they have an elf song in there and I would always pretend it was Hermie singing it! :)

and so jealous of you going to colorado. my favorite place on earth!

All my supplies, cabinets and cubbies all over my classroom are labeled with the teachers name who had the job before me. It's been two years and I haven't even so much as thought about peeling them off and replacing them! I feel you!

Last year, my mom was kind enough to buy me the entire boxed DVD set of claymation Christmas movies!

pocket full of pink said...

I seriously think we should all pitch in and buy you a coat with your own name on it. That is SO lame of them! Oh well, I know you're fabulous even without the name recognition!

Lucy Marie said...

I have never seen your house either. So, if I come to visit, will you buy a new bed for me? That would be nice.

Have so much fun at the food show. Take lots of pictures!
