Misc Monday: It looks so big when cupped in my hands!


Link up HERE if you wanna join in the fun. Or be lame and don’t. It’s whatev.


1) I’m dedicating today’s string of randomness to this picture I took at lunch:


Is that not the biggest damn strawberry you’ve ever seen? Nut was all “Wow! Berry! Eat dat, peeeeaasseee Mama!” and I’m all “No way! I need to take a picture of that monster. And then show it to whoever comes over.” Luckily I don’t have many visitors. This may or may not be attributed to the fact that I would entertain said guests by showing off a mutant strawberry.

2) Looking at the picture, my first thought was What the frack is WRONG with my thumb??  It looks disjointed. And deformed. I’ve never spent much time looking at my thumbs, but now that I have, a complex is quickly developing. I took eleven different pictures trying to find a better angle, and while this is the best, it still looks jacked up.

3) See that thurrr tattoo on my wrist? That is what happens when you are young, dumb, 21, and drink a pitcher of margaritas. You think it’s like, a TOTALLY awesome idea to go get a permanent reminder of your drunken stupidity emblazoned across your body. Thank God it’s tiny and not somewhere really horrible, like my forehead. My friends all got piercings. That was the plan. They tricked me with their foolery by telling me I had a cute nose and that I should pay someone to jab a needle through it. I was convinced… until we got there and I decided it would look like a sparkly freckle. In hindsight, I should have took my chances with the nose piercing. I mean, a star?!? Really? It was a very unfortunate coincidence that about the time I started sporting that atrocity, great role models like Lindsay Lohen were pictured in US Weekly with something very similar. Because you know, who doesn’t want to follow that coke head hot mess of a trend setter? Sigh.


  1. LOL! We all have a few stories of when we thought we were smarter than we really were. I still shake my head at some of the things I did in college. Sigh....

  2. I have my own share of stories that seemed like a good idea at the time!

    That strawberry is huge!!!

  3. Yeah, I hear ya on the tattoo.... I don't mind tattoos, but I wish I would have thought about mine a bit differently too. Seriously, a lizard (nickame of mine growing up) crawling out of my underwear? Didn't think about the positioning of it at the time. LOVELY.

  4. Liz.. At least your nickname wasn't Crab.

  5. So funny...your thumb doesn't like double jointed..LOL! I am a fan of tattoos...I have 6 myself, all of which I got sober. Hey, you will always have a story to tell about your younger years :)

  6. Thank you for your comment. This is a funny post! Your thumb looks fine! Yes, as we look back it is always easy to say, what was I thinking! Have a great night!
