Not much of a theme to my post this weekend. This post is more like “things that are totally unconnected and talked about in a random fashion.” There. That’s my theme!
FIRST RANDOM THING: The other night I watched “The Human Footprint” on the National Geographic Channel. Did anyone else watch that? Fascinating! The show is about everything we consume over a lifetime, like how much water we use and how many bottles of shampoo we go through. Honestly, I think I go through WAY more bottles of shampoo than they showed. And probably twice as much conditioner! Is that bad?
To illustrate the number of showers we take over a lifetime, they lined up thousands of rubber duckies (each duckie representing one shower) and created a wide path that led from the shower all the way out the house, down the road and into a nearby lake. Weird, I know. What’s even weirder, is that this demonstration did not get me to thinking about how much water I waste. Instead, I kept thinking about the poor dude who had to line up all those duckies for 30 seconds of TV time. How did he get THAT job!? Was it his first day as intern!? (Yes, these are the ridiculous things that concern me.)
SECOND RANDOM THING: One of our friends is moving to London and she sold us her didjeridoo. It’s about 4 feet long and when my husband is blowing on it and I’m in the other room…for just a moment… I get scared because I think there’s a walrus in the house. "No, silly," I say to myself, "it’s just our new aboriginal wind instrument." (Honestly, it’s super-cool!)
THIRD RANDOM THING: I’ve been doing, um, okay with being vegan. I’m able to do fine when I’m at home (thanks to the power of lentils) but going out to dinner is a nightmare! I get all tense and my heart palpitates before I even look at the menu because I know there won’t be anything on there I can eat. So I just go ahead and eat things with cheese and pretend it never happened.
FOURTH AND FINAL RANDOM THING: Pumpkins are neat. (That’s the most random thing I could think of. Sorry, but I had to keep with my theme!!!)
You guys got anything random going on?
