RTT- What? Am I the Title Fairy?

It's Tuesday. Ahh sweet sweet Tuesday. It means Monday is over and we are one day closer to the weekend. It is also my day of crazy random. You can head over to Keely's and get in on the random by clicking that shiny purple button.

So when I was doing dishes, pausing to make KiKi a peanut butter sandwich and listening for the signal from my BlackBerry that another email had arrived (hooray multi-tasking), I had this thought...You remember the JIF commercials that say "Choosey moms choose JIF?" Well, I think in these economic times the slogan needs to be changed to "Smart moms buy whatever the hell is on sale"...Just sayin'.

I woke up this morning and checked the BlackBerry for Facebook notifications and found out that Patrick Swayze died. Just goes to show you this is the way information travels these days. I mean, I found out Michael Jackson died by text message for goodness sake.

I saw a guy mowing his lawn in a proper pair of trousers, shoes, a button down white shirt and a tweed jacket yesterday.

They should really put warning labels on sticks of deodorant that smell like baby powder. I hate the smell of baby powder. It makes me think of baby poop and then I get this overwhelming urge to barf. That would suck, upchucking in the deodorant aisle at the grocery store.

President Obama called Kanye West a jackass. Now that is something that I can get behind.

I just watched the first five minute preview of the new Grey's Anatomy series (errr, umm season), and I can't help but wonder if they are going to jump the shark this year.

KiKi is obsessed with eating Cup o Noodles for lunch. I literally can feed my kid lunch for 37 cents a day. It is like a feed the children commercial.

Alright enough of my random for one day. You crazy kids take care and have a good day!

**Edit** I almost forgot that I have a guest post up today at The Locals Love It. Check it out!

I grew up (I mean out) on Cup O' Noodles... Loved them! Didn't want anything else to eat.

Facebook rules! If it isn't on there, it isn't worth knowing.

Nice randomness, thanks for sharing.

Great randomness. . .

Between the peanut butter and cup o' noodles, you'll have lots of money left over for massages and pedicures!

Raven said...

Buying whatever is on sale? Hell yeah!!

When I signed onto MSN I saw that about Swayze too. Very sad.

I got a good laugh out of the guy mowing his lawn. That was a great mental image too.

I hate baby powder smelling things too. I always want to ask, "Do I look like I'm wearing a diaper?"

Ummmm who's Kayne West? I really need to get tv again. I feel like I live under a rock.

Great random thoughts!

The annoying thing about my Blackberry is that when I get an email I think "hey, someone is commenting on my blog, or I got offered a job interview, or a mate wants to go for drinks after work" and it turns out to be a spam email. Dagnammit it dashes my hopes.

I learned about Patrick Swayze from facebook this morning too! Although the first mention of it said "Patrick Thingie" and I had to read further down to figure out what my oddball friend meant.

blueviolet said...

I love your peanut butter slogan! Jif is my favorite too but I'll get in bed with anything that's on sale these days.

The president said that? LOL, there's no getting around the truth. Kanye IS a jackass.

I think Grey's Anatomy jumped the shark last year when they went with that ridiculous Izzy storyline.

Stacy (the Random Cool Chick) said...

Apparently I'm a mom who's not so choosy...because I prefer Skippy over JIF any day. ;)

I first heard about Patrick Swayze's passing over on Snooker's RTT post - I had to take a detour and go read about it on MSN. Guess I need to check Facebook more often. So sad about his passing.

That guy mowing the lawn in his button down shirt, proper pair of trousers, shoes and tweed jacket totally cracked me up!

I'm curious to see if Grey's Anatomy jumps the shark this year, too. They were well on their way last year - the shark was definitely circling.

Happy RTT! :)

Design it Chic said...

I state with your slogan!!! SALE is cool..but FREE is the BEST:)
Oh and I've heard about Patrick Swayze on blogs..so go figure:)
Happy Random and thanks for stopping by earlier!

Julie@Momspective said...

Okay, the Obama thing is HILARIOUS. I really need to start watching something other than Spongebob, I get ALL my news via social media :)

Badass Geek said...

Cup O' Noodles should seriously consider changing their names to "Cup O' Crack".

I am Harriet said...

I think my hubby would file for divorce if did not come home with Jif. Even if we didn't have a cent in the world we'd still have his Jif.

Rob said...

Love the randomness. Also that is funny someone in full business attire cutting the grass. Wonder if her weedwacked also. LOL.

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

Am loving the JIF line. Seriously true. So what if we have had either pasta or frozen chicken every night for the past week? Mama's got in the house so therefore doesn't have to go spend money, we are eating it.

I hate non-good smelling deodorant. I was stuck with Vanilla Chai for months because I couldn't get my hands on good stuff in Germany. Thankfully I no longer smell like Starbucks.

Aunt Juicebox said...

I wish I could eat for 37 cents per meal. That would be the tits. As it is, I've been surviving this month on whatever free food I can scrounge. I've got a lead ball in the pit of my stomach right now for that very reason. Ugh.

Jenni said...

did obama really call kanye a jackass? i kind of love that.

and i love your new slogan.

Mama Dawg said...

yeah, LOL loves ramen noodles.

Erin@TheLocalsLoveIt said...

You mean you're not suppose to dress up to mow the grass? Wearing heals is almost like airating??

Thanks for being my guest poster today!!

Toni said...

President Obama called Kanye West a jackass? Brilliant. Just brilliant :-)

Sprite's Keeper said...

This is the second time I've seen a comment about Obama calling Kanye a jackass. Nice! I saw him on Jay Leno last night and he made no sense whatsoever and then turned it into a "feeling sorry for myself since I haven't had time to grieve for my mom" moment. Nope, not believable to me.

Captain Dumbass said...

Facebook blows, Obama's comment was awesome, and you can put some serious gourmet on Cup-o'Noodles if you try.

PropellerHeadMom said...

He did? Wow - finally something I actually agree with Obama about. I just bought a bunch of Cup O'Noodles for me. It's the lunch food of champions :-) I am going to make some right now!

Big Mama Cass said...

I can't wait for Greys to be back! :)

My neighbor mowes his lawn in his suit. And another lady neighbor washes her car in a dress at 11:30 at night with spotlights on her car.

Vodka Logic said...

Are you an American in Britain? If you are you are now officially British by this line "proper pair of trousers" Proper cracks me up.. he was proper misbehaving, It was proper cold..fits all occasions.

Love the randomness..thanks x

Mad Woman said...

Hahaha.."whatever the hell is on sale.." AMEN!!

I learned about Patrick Swayze on Facebook too..and then did my duty and spread the word in the same manner.

Great randomness..thanks!

Casey said...

I hate baby powder deodorant too and it makes me want to yak too. Weird.

I think Obama should stand behind calling Kanye a jackass. It was accurate and hilarious.

I mow my lawn in boxers and a t-shirt. I guess I'm underdressed.
