Tuesday Randomness

I hope I'm doing this right...

* I'm looking out the window and the building opposite is this kind of teracotta orangy colour and the sky is blue and there is snow everywhere and I never thought I was artistic but I feel somehow moved by what I can see even though I suck at describing it...

* I made a decision to not make a decision at the weekend and feel okay about it even though I know it's kind of like taking a Tylenol for a broken leg, and probably I'll get gangrene

* I care way too much about the love lives of strangers

* I spend way too much time online right now, and kind of know that this blog is the social life I don't have on this continent yet

* My mom always smells like cookies, even when she hasn't just made any

* when I was 16 I got in a huge fight with my parents and drove their car to Chicago then didn't know what to do so just drove back

* I don't always say what I mean

* Sometimes I get annoyed with people for speaking their own language in their own country, and yes I already know that makes me a jerk

* I had a little groupie phase once upon a time, although really I would listen to pop any day of the week

* ETA: I saw a guy pushing a stroller.  Not weird in Stockholm because pretty much all guys push strollers here, but this stroller contained two puppies.  Not sure if they couldn't walk in the snow or Swedish men just really like pushing strollers even if they don't have kids...

There's a woman in my neighbourhood (though we're obviously not in Stockholm) who pushes two chihuahuas in a stroller multiple times a day. I don't get it!

I spend way too much time online too. I'm embarrassed to even admit to how many hours I spend at the computer every day. But, all my friends live in my computer. That, and I'm a serious blog addict.

A guy pushing a stroller. With puppies? That is priceless!

I hope you don't get gangrene. That would suck.

"Groupie phase"?? What sort of music do you like? Obviously ABBA, but you clearly have other tastes outside pop? Do you like Basshunter? - he's so cute!

The mental images alone of puppies pushin' has me laughing my arse off. Sorry. I amuse really easily.

Happy RTT!

They were really cute little puppies as well! I kept imagining that maybe he was told to take the dogs for a walk and put the baby in the stroller and got confused...

@ Raven - at least there's two of us! Instead of chatting to people in the street or whatever, I chat to the nice people who live in my computer and speak English, so that's cool.

The Groupie phase might be a blog post all of its own some day... we'll see how brave I feel!

I like all kinds really, but when I'm in a crappy mood nothing cheers me up like good old dancy pop. It used to crack me up to imagine what some of the guys I, uhh, 'knew' would think if they could see my ipod!!

I don't really know Basshunter's music, but he's definitely a cutie...

p.s. I meant emotional gangrene, which will suck too but at least I don't think my leg will fall off.

Because that would really suck. I'd have a broken leg and a bunch of wasted shoes.

Lol puppies in a pushchair! Maybe the guy had just dropped off his kid at nursery and on his way home the puppies got tired? Anything else would just be weird!

OhioGirl said...

I hope so too! Because if it's anything like my "confused" explanation, I'm worried about the baby sitting someplace on a leash!
