Friday Fragments: No Cohesive Thoughts

"Some people think their parents buy the gifts, but I know it's Santa.  Seriously, Mamma, I know you couldn't afford an American Girl Doll!"


A little music to get you in the mood: 


I only gained a pound over Thanksgiving, which is like a record for me.  I think it may have been alcohol weight. I've heard it wondered if people who blog about needing wine actually drink as much as they imply... most of us admit we don't... we just blog about it alot.  Last week, may have been a case where I actually had MORE wine than I blogged about, but hey, my children were away, I hosted a 40th Birthday Party and I just broken up with a boy. I think I'm entitled and now I'm back to my normal routine! When I stepped on teh scale the other day, I'd lost the pound and then some... I'm only .5 from my goal, which to me is as good as there!!!!!! *grins*


My new car actually fits in my garage... it's a tight fit, but a fit none-the-less!!!!


I stumbled across a blog last week that featured this website:

Every time I sampled I got a different author.  Apparently, I'm just as random with my writing style as I am everything else!

Who do I Write Like?

J.D. Salinger or  Cory Doctorow, who I actually had to google, or Stephen King among others...depending on the day!

I wonder who I write like!

Diane said...

I did not weight myself after Thanksgiving. I just couldn't bring myself to do it!

Anastasia said...

I wanted an American Girl doll so bad! But to no avail. That shizz is expensive!

I got Margaret Atwood, which I thought was pretty cool.

Wayne W Smith said...

That was a fun group of FF.

Congrats on closing in on the 1/2 pound goal; especially after the first big eating holiday.

Both our vehicles would fit in the garage, but we leave on in the driveway to make it easier for the kids. As a result, my morning involves ice scraping this time of year.

Enjoy your weekend.

You fragments are great and have me laughing.

Love the quote about Santa. My oldest says every year, "Santa just knows me so well. I Know I'll always get the best gifts from him - even better than my birthday!"

LOVE Casting Crowns!

I will probably gain a pound in alcohol weight tonight because my boy will be at his dad's and it has been one heck of a week! I love my child, but I also love the breaks!

Sorry to hear about your breakup. I've been dating someone for the past two months and your last post actually reminded me a lot of our relationship. He lives an hour and a half away and we see each other pretty much every other weekend. I enjoy being around him and we have so much fun (and the chemistry is great), but I know deep down there will be an ending. I also know that the longer we see each other the harder it will be when it does end. But, just like you, I enjoy being a couple and having that relationship. Dating is just stinkin' hard!

did your daughter really say that?

and drink up babe, you deserved it!

Babes Mami said...

I think you were justified in that drinking! Haha

Brandi. said...

I think just the fact that we're Mommas we deserve a little extra wine here and there. =)

I've done that "I write like" thing a few times, too and I keep getting different people. Most of them, I haven't even heard of!

Hope you have a great weekend. =)

Interesting concept of a website. I'm curious now.

And yeah, did the girl actually SAY that? :)

Rachael said...

Huh. Apparently, I write like Daniel Defoe who wrote Robinson Crusoe. That's so weird. I wonder what it's based on?

Tettelestai said...

I can't wait to hop over to find out who I write like. In my mind, I am Jane Austen ;-)

Your quote at the top cracks me up! My daughter believes in Santa even though we don't actually 'do' him here.

Katya kate said...

haha I love your first statement! And talking about wine, ah I'm with you!

Mrs4444 said...

Well, at least you have a new car. Sorry about the guy.

Loved the American Girl fragment--super cute.

When Kyle came to me to tell me he knew that I was the Easter Bunny, it was the year I'd put his basket up in a closet. He said, "I know it's you, Mom, cuz a rabbit would be way too short to get my basket up there."lol

Amy said...

I love randomness. I write like Chuck Palaniuk - who I have never heard of, Kurt Vonnegut, and another person I have never hear of, Cory Doctorow.

I refuse to weigh myself until after the new year!! :)
