Ten Random Thoughts

The official Ten on Tuesday site has gotten off schedule - or I have gotten off schedule. Either way, I've already done this week's list, and next week's. So here's something else for your reading enjoyment - 10 random thoughts of mine:

  1. I think Halloween has gotten totally out of control. The decorations, the costumes, the marketing. It's nearly as big as Christmas.
  2. Speaking of holiday decorations, I really hate those big inflatable things people put in their yards.
  3. I got an mp3 player for my birthday (the big surprise) and I L-O-V-E it! I have 710 songs on it and I like to just put it on "shuffle all" and then I never know what's coming up next. But I know I'll like it because I put it on there!

  4. I am already bored with Survivor. The challenges are pretty cool, but there are no good "characters" on the tribes. Where's the Colby, the Rupert, the Jonny Fairplay? These people are boring, and now that Aaron is gone, not even good to look at.

  5. In fact, I'm bored with several of the shows I started out watching this fall. I'm whittling down that list on my sidebar.

  6. However, I am excited that The Amazing Race is coming back next Sunday (November 4).

  7. I want to be Julianne Hough when I grow up.



  8. I thought I might miss teaching dance this fall. I don't. But I do miss dancing, and I think my body misses the exercise. Gotta do something about that......

  9. I thought I would hate having a part-time job at Hubby's work. I don't. It's not so bad.

  10. Little Son's school is asking for money again. Why don't I just arrange to have our paychecks directly deposited into the PTA's account??

Happy Tuesday, everyone!

Lovely list of random thoughts. Hold your checkbook close to your heart when you're near PTA folks.

Yes, 10 on Tuesday has made me insane the past few weeks. I gave up on it this week... Good for you for sticking it out.

Amen to #4 and #10 sister.

I went in Big Lots today and they already have all their Christmas Crap (as Bubba's Mom would say) out on display! Um, it's not even Halloween yet! I think Halloween is too big of a deal, too. But that's just me, I've never really been that into, even as a kid.

Bubba's Mom said...

Just where do all the adults wear those sexy costumes they advertise anyway? To the school carnival?? I don't think so! Do they trick or treat with a martini glass in hand or what??? Do they hope somebody is handing out marijuana brownies?? Let's give Halloween back to the kids and get over it for pete's sake (whoever pete is).

Bubba's Sis said...

Who's handing out marijana brownies?? Sugarbear?? I hear she grows it out back behind the trailer...

Yes, #10 is so annoying. So much for "free" public school.

You know I'm with you on #4, #7, and #10. I happen to enjoy Halloween and all the stuff that goes with it so I guess we'll have to disagree.

I feel sorry for Thanksgiving.

Yeah, I am bored with Survivor too. And seriously, people, why do they think it's OK to just let people run around in their dirty underwear on national TV???

I want Julianne Hough's BODY in my next life. Although she's very pretty, too.

I'm psyched about Amazing Race too. I already scoped out the new people and decided who to hate LOL

I also totally agree about Halloween. I resolutely refuse to spend $20 on a costume for ONE NIGHT. Oh, and the halloween parades at the stores that are 5 days before Halloween - no, I don't think so.
