Here are some things I learned this week:
- If you have World Cup fever like I do, then you have watched a lot of soccer recently. Something I discovered while watching was why the abbreviation for Morocco is MAR. Intuitively, it felt like it should be MOR but I guess the French have a different word for everything.
- Taking a nap with two dogs might not look like it belongs in the ergonomic best practices handbook but it worked for me, Frizz and Lucy.
- Speaking of Lucy, I also discovered her strategy for meeting Santa.
- I thought everyone had an inner monologue but I guess I was wrong. And for those of you wondering, my inner monologue voice sounds like Austin Powers.
- 37 percent of the world’s population, 2.9 billion people, have never used the Internet. That's a lot of people that are missing yours truly.
- There’s a warehouse in Israel full of claw machines you can play remotely. They send the prize if you win. Now aren't you glad you are one of the billions that does have internet.
Thanks for stopping by.
I hope your week is going well and I will talk to you soon.
I will persevere.
I will keep moving forward.
I will be the stream.
i only watched one soccer match (is that what it is called?) US vs Netherlands. Next time someone tells me that baseball is boring I am going to share how I feel about soccer. Not my sport but sure glad you enjoyed it. I tried. That nap with the dogs looks perfect to me! Kuchisabishii is a funny word to say, and I understand the meaning, like when I must have a candy bar but damn I'm not even hungy, but my mouith is lonely. Tee hee.ReplyDelete
One of the big reasons I can watch soccer is because I have a pretty good idea when it is going to be over, Peg. I love baseball but it can drag on forever sometimes especially during the playoffs.Delete
I don't really understand how people don't have an inner monologue. Maybe they sleep a lot better??ReplyDelete
That really IS a lot of people missing out on your blog!
Those people don't know what they are missing, Bijoux.Delete
Dog headwarmers and footwarmers.ReplyDelete
The flowers meme will have me giggling for several more hours!
They are earning their keep, Bob.Delete
I can't follow the ball nor do I understand soccer. But it's extremely popular so I must be missing something. Maroc in French, yes. I hadn't remembered that exchange in "The Golden Girls" but it's perfect. Unfortunately, I often have that last one and my mouth isn't lonely for vegetables. :(ReplyDelete
Soccer is definitely an acquired taste, Margaret.Delete
I have 180 lbs of dogs that sleep on the bed and it's not unusual to wake up with aches and pains. My inner monologue never shuts up... ever, and is the same voice that explains what's happening in my dreams, which why most of them never make sense.ReplyDelete
We are at about 100 pounds right now, Dave R.Delete
That bit of Golden Girls still brings tears. Love is love.ReplyDelete
My inner voice never shuts up, NEVER. It's with me when I go to sleep and as soon as I wake up and every nanosecond in between. Some days I want to punch it, not because it's critical but just because it won't stop and it's tiring.ReplyDelete
The Japanese word is perfect for my kind of eating! I wish I could chew gum because it might help matters but I have TMJ which means that excessive chewing makes my jaw very sore. Oh well. How is the sweets situation going with you? The only thing that works for me is to not buy it, but that's hard because my inner voice (that b**** again) says, But what if you really start craving something and there's nothing in the house??
Love your naptime pals. Lucy is getting big! Is Ms Frizzle getting to be more okay with her? Have a great week, Mr S.
Thank you, jenny_o.The doggos are doing good. Frizzle tolerates the puppy and the puppy doesn't care one way or another so it all works out.Delete
No inner monologue for me, right Mike? Right!ReplyDelete
Whatever you have to tell yourself, Mike.Delete
My inner dialogue is long and my attention span is short; that makes me start over a lot in my head! Cute nap bookends.ReplyDelete
Sounds like mine, kden.Delete
Do we need remote claw machines? I thought online gambling took care of those needs.ReplyDelete
I didn't think we needed to keep up with the Kardashians but here we are.Delete
I have never really paid attention to the voice. I do know that bitch doing the talking is pretty unkind. She is always yelling at me for some damn thing.ReplyDelete
My voice does call me an idiot a lot.Delete
I haven't watched any World Cup matches, but that's not anything new... as for my inner dialogue, I just have to keep it inside me, for when I let it out, I get in troubleReplyDelete
You haven't missed much, Jeff. I think the WC has been a snoozer this year.Delete
The picture of you napping with the dogs is too cute.ReplyDelete
I don't watch sports. Never liked any of them.
I should quit watching sports. It makes me grumpy.Delete
Sometimes, just sometimes,...you make me want to talk to a straight person.ReplyDelete
It can be our secret, Jimmy. Good to hear from you.Delete
You guys certainly are comfy looking in that first picture. I can't imagine playing that claw machine remotely. Love the memes!ReplyDelete
Not a lot of complaints from me on that nap, Jeanette.Delete
I love Lucy under the christmas tree...so muchReplyDelete
