3 of 3... Fragments (I DID IT!!)

After making a Target run and picking up some Chick-Fil-A for lunch I do believe the tip-pities of my fingers are ready to type some fragments.

Friday Fragments brought to us all by Mrs. 4444. You know this one works just like the other two carnivals I participated in. Do you have a tidbit to share? Well post it here in the comments OR head on over to Mrs. 4444 and leave her a comment then click on some other links to read more fragments.

So I can share those little bits that don't make up a post but put them all together and VOILA!! a post.

I am continually amazed when I open up my little piece of the worldwide web and see that there are 20+ random strangers new friends who I have never met face-to-face and want to follow the random happenings of me and my family. You don't even know it but you really make this girl feel special.  See them over there -----à

PSA – When you are driving your car you are not invisible? Just today while out on my Target run; Five, again FIVE nose pickers were passed. Not a scratch a definite pick. So once again a reminder that you can be seen when you are driving a car.

I'm so tired of hearing about the return of Tai Shan to China. Yes I realize panda bears are rare, really I get that. But he has been property of the Chinese government since he was born, why is it headline news everyday that they asked for him back. I mean really!!

Finally, I think at my next job I want to be a weather person. I'm not sure that there is any schooling required you just watch computer models report what you want and then BAM!! I wake up with no warning that it is going to be max 35 degrees today and into the weekend. HELLLOOO!! A little notice please, Mr. Weatherman.

Well I did not mean for this to turn into a mini rant but it appears that is exactly what I have done. I'm feeling the pressure to get this posted since I promised 3 posts at the beginning of the day.

Have a great weekend!!! I surely hope to get all our decorating done, I'm quite sure it will make for some great "Not Me" material…

I know what you mean about being amazed that strangers want to follow your 'random happenings' but I am thrilled to find other moms of twins and besides that you are hilarious. Keep up the good work and I look forward to following your blog!

I would be THRILLED with 35 degrees!! It's only 4 degrees here right now.....

Isn't the WWW great? You can log in and find a friend at any time of the day or night; I love Bloggyland :)

Oops. Next time, I'll use a tissue!

Have a great weekend!

Best part about our weather people around here is there ability to incite panic. I mean, I live in Maryland, it snows here every winter, but somehow, people are still scared into hoarding every time the TV people incorrectly predict a whole butt load of snow. Bugs me to death!

I've often said I wish I had become a weather person so I could get paid a boatload of money for always being wrong... ;)

I'm always amazed when I see nose pickers in their cars. They really must think they're invisible! And some think they're invincible... ;)

Did you get your decorating done? I'm still working on ours...

Happy FF late! :)

Haven't heard about the panda yet. But that's b/c I don't get to watch much "adult" tv anymore!

And lol about the nose pickers. I just saw one the other day and thought the same thing! Seriously gross!

Happy belated FF!

I am with you on the nose picking. That has me cracking up. True story...when I was living in Denver after college, I was driving home from work, and looked into my rearview while at a light. The guy (I'd guess 30's) was picking his nose. Upon retrieving what he was after, he examined it closely as if deciding whether it was worthy. Apparently it was, because in the mouth it went. I was so GROSSED out. Seriously.

I hate our weathermen, too. They don't seem to have a clue.

Oh, and the nose picking grosses me out. I mean, yeah--my kids do it sometimes. But when you see an adult in the car next to you? EWWWWWWWWWW!!!! Nasty.

I read somewhere that the steering wheel is the dirtiest part of a vehicle because of the "pickers". EEeeewwwwww!

Don't people know that the highway is the only safe place to pick??? And even then...check your mirrors, people!
