A random bulleted list


-It troubles me terribly to hear anybody, especially a child say the word “gimme.” For example “gimme a banana,” “gimmie my milk.” It is so rude.

-So, obviously, when I hear people at a restaurant or fast food place say “gimmie a number 5” or “gimmie a large lemonade” it also annoys me terribly, too!

-Yesterday on my way to work, I saw a truck that was for a Crime scene clean up company. Never have I seen one of these before and never have I seen the words “$uicide, un@ttended de@th and rnurder” in one place. (I know that looks crazy, but I don’t want crazy people coming to read about those things here!)

-What is an un@ttended de@th anyways? How can nobody be there if there is a death? That doesn’t make sense to me.

-I’m pretty sure that job is not on anybody’s list as “what I want to be when I grow up.”

-Then, I immediately started thinking about Pulp Fiction. You know, when they call somebody to “take care of the car?” (I thought about putting an image here, but it was just too gross.)

-In high school, we did a dance in drill team to a song that was in Pulp Fiction. Our drill team director had no idea it was playing during the scene with the g!mp. Pretty sure there would have been a song change after that.

-And then I remembered my internship at a toxicology lab at the medical examiners office. There will be a post on a Darwin Award winner coming from that memory.

-The pumpkin spice lattes are now at the Bucks. But, we are starting to do the Dave Ramsey budget and I feel bad about spending $4.

-Where can I get a free Starbucks gift card? Anybody have any ideas?

-#2 is really growing up. She has decided that she likes cups now and will drink from them.

-I’ve decided that she can still be my baby for a while longer and I’m giving her bottles still at home. It’s totally me, I know.

-Consistently, #1 will say “may I please have…” when she wants something. I’m so glad we are finally to that point. Sometimes she slips, but it is so nice when she remembers her manners.

-When in Houston, I got two shaved ices from two different places. Both blue bubble gum. One was perfect. One was so gross I threw it away. We won’t be going back to that place.

-I will lose some weight. I will lose some weight. I will lose some weight.

-How is it Labor Day already?

-And, why don’t we have any plans?

-Thank goodness for the three day weekend.

  1. GREAT BULLET LIST! Have a great three day weekend!

  2. This list cracked me up because it reminds me of what goes on in my head all day long! Just all over the place! 🙂

    You should watch the movie "Sunshine Cleaning". It's about two sisters who own a crime scene clean up company. We watched it last week and it's pretty good!

  3. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU amazing, wonderful parent who helps to appropriately increase her children's vocabulary. I can't tell you how many times I try to correct the "gimmie" in the classroom! You rock!

  4. @ll of thi$ was hilarious.

    My husband has a 4 day weekend. Do we have any plans? Not one.

  5. I LOVE random lists!

    Pumpkin spice lattes = yum! But I agree…the price tag? Not so good! We usually buy the spiced pumpkin coffee creamer…it's so good!

    And I was laughing so hard about the truck…haha! I've never seen one either! Although I just watched Sunshine Cleaning…it was pretty good.

    And N is drinking from a cup?! Where did the time go? I remember when you were pregnant and wanting a margarita…

  6. have you ever signed up for swagbucks? you use it instead of like google when you want to search for something and you randomly get bucks and then cash them in for gift cards and other stuff. its easy and its not like you're doing anything extra. they have starbucks GCs as rewards


  7. I've been responding to all your posts and only some of my comments go through! Grr!!

    But anyway.

    I totally agree about 'gimme'. It sounds so RUDE.

  8. Ew. I wouldn't like to see one of those either. And you're right…how in the world would you get into that line of work anyways?
    I started Pulp Fiction and never finished it. I don't like Q. Tarentino.
    You're doing DR too? I know a ton of people doing that. I'm scared Alex is going to make me do it!
    Pumpkin spice lattes totally rock.
    You talked about shaved ice last time you went to H.
    You look awesome…quit stressing!
    Let's meet up Sunday afternoon or something if you don't have any plans…

  9. Great list! I may need to do one now. Another great idea is the letter substitutions to keep out the creeps!
    Gimme irritates me too. "Fixin' to" is one I've caught myself saying that I don't like.
    Maybe un@ttended de@th is where someone is by themselves and falls off a roof or gets electr0cuted by an appliance or slips and hits their head/breaks neck. Ok, I really don't want to think of any other ways.:)
    I'm glad I'm not a coffee drinker because I couldn't go $4 either right now, and also right now I don't live within a hundred miles of one. (They do make a great hot chocolate though.)
    Lastly (before this comment looks like it's own blog), I can't believe it's Labor Day either, this year is flyin' by! And btw, I myself have been doing the 'I will lose some weight' chant too.

  10. Pumpkin spice lattes = yummy, $4 for one, not so much! International Delights has a seasonal coffee creamer that is pumpkin spice flavored. We buy that for our coffee at home and it satisfies my cravings for pumpkin spice lattes (and it doesn't break the bank)!

  11. I can't remember the gimp scene but I bet the song rocked! We were a very LDS based type high school (not LDS personally) so we had a lot of G, PG music so yeah Pulp Fiction would have sent people running to church! LMAO

    As for the weight sister…I am with you there….still got 50lbs to lose. In time, but hey the hubs still thinks I'm hot so that helps!


  12. I'm totally into random, bulleted list myself lately.

    Both of your girls are getting huge. I remember so well you posting N's birth, wasn't that like last week?!

    Happy Labor Day weekend. (Hope you enjoy it a little more now.)

  13. I will lose weight. I keep saying that.

    And. Whatev K. I saw pics of you and the husband. YOU look smashing.

  14. Bullet thoughts are great because that's what really goes on in our heads! I love the pumpkin spice too…have you tried the chai tea latte?? Hmmmm YUM! $4 once in a while isn't so bad is it?? You deserve it!

  15. I'm not a fan of gimmie either. I notice a lot of people say it when ordering. If I were the waitress I'd be tempted to say, "No. You may not have that until you ask politely…"

  16. You know what I don't like? Budgets. Why is it that all the fun stuff doesn't fit into one? And why does it seem like everyone else still fits the fun stuff in?

  17. Oh my gosh, gimme drives me insane too. We don't even use the word in our house so the kids don't pick it up.

  18. What a fun post….so many things can bug us…and I agree with you. I would not want to be a cr!me scene cleaner upper either. I can not think of a worse job…just the smells would do me in. We have two friends who were detectives with the police dept. They said the hardest part was not seeing the blood and dead bodies…they said the hardest part was the smells. Now how did I get on such a gross subject????
    Have a happy labor day today. EJ and Claire spent the night so we will be having a fun day…Could Izzy and Nat come to our tea party??? Mindy, Austin and Ernie will join us for bbq later…why don't you and Mr. Serious join us.
    Hugs, Grammy Lura

  19. What nice manners she's developing!

    Using gimme is like grabbing. It's not nice.

    I really need to look into this whole Dave Ramsey thing!

  20. you know i want to respond to each and every one of these. bc i am sooo like that. but i won't.

    but i will agree 100 times over on the starbucks gift cards…i too am in need. how can we make that happen?

  21. Sometimes it's good to have no plans. Kinds wish that had been us this weekend…

    Good for you for doing the budget thing too!

  22. GREAT bullet list! Sometimes those are the best posts! All the goods all rolled into one! 😉
    I toally agree on many of them listed!
    Check out my blog for a special nomination!!!

  23. HOPE you guys HAD some FUN over the long weekend!

  24. I don't like "gimme" either. Plus, I always feel bad for people working drive-thrus because I figure that they deal with a TON of rude people every day so I always try to ask for things (i. e. "Can I have a…." followed with lots of "thank yous")

    I think un@ttended death is when someone dies and they don't find them for a while (gross, huh?) so it requires a major clean-up.

    Random story: one of my college roommates had a friend who came to visit her and that's what he did for a living.

    Also, bubblegum sno cones fall into one of two categories: DELICIOUS or DISGUSTING. There is no in between.

  25. I love this list… not at all random… flows…

    and i've been craving a pumpkin spice latte too… but i feel super guilty about the money.

    i always use plastic jungle [dot] com, but there are never sbux giftcards on there 🙁

  26. Gimme really bothers the crap out of me too. Love that Isabelle says May I please…

  27. Yay for the new Dave Ramsey budget – good luck!! We're (kind of) doing the same thing here, too. Ugh.

    Oh – and a FREE Buck's gift card?! I ask for them for bdays and Christmas – try that! 🙂

  28. My coffee maker broke this morning so I went and bought a Pumpkin Spice Latte. I loved every sip of it. Mmmmm….

    I've never seen a CSI truck! But I do love to watch the show 🙂

  29. Pumpkin Spice…mmm the best…except NOT on whit pants. UG

    love your list!
