Marvin

Silly Sweetie

Sometimes Seth is very silly. Okay, it happens sort of often. But I'm particularly amused by one thing.

Occasionally I ask Seth to put my sheitel away (if I come home and my head is killing me, for example, and I don't want to traipse upstairs). It doesn't happen that often because he doesn't put it on the head form very well and it saves me stress if I don't have to see that. ;) But a week or two ago I had a splitting headache and I asked him to take it upstairs in favor of a comfy snood.

Later, when I was feeling better, I ventured upstairs and went into the bathroom to brush my teeth. Not only had he done a decent job putting the sheitel on the head form, he'd remembered to put the pins in it to hold it in place. The sheitel is held onto the form with long, thick stick pins. He had placed the pins in such a way that it looked like a Martian. All it needed were glittery balls on the ends of the pins. :)

I asked Seth if he'd done it on purpose, because, really, it was awfully funny looking, but it was an accident, which made it even funnier. Or maybe it made it less funny. I'm not sure. Take your pick.

So the next morning, I went into the bathroom, and he had pinned a note on the "face" that said "Take me to your Leader!" I immediately burst out laughing. Every few days (sometimes more often) the note mysteriously changes. There's been:

"Take me to your Leader"
"We mean no harm to your Planet!"
"Where's the kaboom? There was supposed to be an earth-shattering Kaboom!"
"Mars needs Women!"
and then there was todays message:
"Little Green Man, 'bout 4 foot 1; Maybe he wants to have some fun"

I may have that last one a little wrong. Apparently, it's from a song. Apparently, I'm not cool enough to know what the kids are listening to these days.

I'm particularly proud of "where's the kaboom? There was supposed to be an earth-shattering Kaboom!" And now, I want to go find Loony Toons on DVD. There must be some, right?

quickies


  • There is such a thing as organic ketchup. I really have to ask... what the hell??

  • I have three, count em, three meetings today

  • I lied. I have two meetings and a phone conference.

  • I'm really enjoying my orange juice this morning

  • I wanted to get up at 5:30, but it was too cold. I got up and took a shower at 6. I'm pretty proud of myself for not staying in bed longer.

  • No I'm not. I really wanted to stay in bed longer. I'd be a happier camper right now if I were snuggled under my fuzzy blue blanket.

  • When I was getting ready this morning, Charlie was laying delicately right smack in the middle of the couch with his front paws crossed. It was really cute.

  • I think I must be smoking crack in my sleep. Why else would I have signed up for NaNoWriMo?

  • I wish my company was cool enough to have a nap room.

  • I made meatballs last night to serve tonight. They are yummy. YUM-MEE. I'm trying to decide whether to serve them with rice or pasta. Seth likes both

  • The problem with pasta is that if it has to wait (and it will have to wait) to be served, it could get sticky (and cold). The answer, usually, would be to toss it with a teaspoon or three of olive oil. The problem with that is that then the sauce won't adhere to the pasta, thereby defeating the purpose of pasta and sauce. Rice keeps better. But some people think it's weird to have rice and meatballs. But it's yummy. Yumeroonies.

  • Campbell's Soup now has a kosher vegetarian vegetable soup. I'd still rather make my own, but I think it's cool that it's hechshered now

  • I'm. So. Sleepy.

  • I forgot to buy tomatoes. I hope we have some.

  • I have a Marvin the Martian plush doll on my desk.

  • And a squishy brain

  • And a beanie stomach

  • Is there such a thing as an extension cord for headphones? My computer is stupid and I have to plug headphones in the back of my CPU (even though there is a perfectly good headphone jack in the front...okay it's not perfectly good, I can plug in the headphones there, but the sound will still come out of the speakers), so then I can't quite get the headphones to comfortably reach my head. And I'd like to listen to music while I work instead of listening to people around me. Is this so much to ask? (that was a rhetorical question!)

endangered species

There's a three inch long praying mantis on our front door right now. Nifty. The Praying Mantis is Connecticut's State Insect. They are also an endangered species. And Praying Mantis Females are *always* into one night stands. ;)

Neato.
