The Post About Mostly Nothing

Posted in Randomness, The Amazing G at 9:49 PM by TKWatson

My world has been a little crazy as of late.  Hence the lack of post-age this past week.  I hope this upcoming week will shape up better, but the way things are going thus far, I can’t say I’d bet money on it.

The crazy has ‘drained’ me.  I feel like I want to write something… but… my brain is just so tired of thinking that I’m really just not sure what to write.  There are lots of things going on in my head, but none of which I want to write about.  Today, I want to write to escape my own brain, not write to talk about my brain.  (P.S. pictures of brains SERIOUSLY freak me out.  I don’t know why that’s relevant.  I’m just saying…)

When all else fails… I open a bottle of wine.  Currently, I’m sipping on a glass of Merlot, listening to jazz, and I’m about to make a frozen  pizza.  Merlot, jazz… and frozen pizza.  Classy.  What can I say… my parents have been known to drink wine from a box out of a red plastic cup. As they say… the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.  Ah well… I embrace who I am… two parts sophisticated urbanite, one part redneck.  I make no apologies.

Seriously though… wine and jazz music… a perfect combination for calming me down, helping me to clear my head, relax, and just enjoy a nice evening at home.  It’s sorta unfortunate that G doesn’t like wine… he won’t be able to share this passion of mine… but… hey… more wine for me.  (I kid… I promise I’m not as much of a wino or drunkered as I sometimes make myself out to be.  Exaggeration… it’s one my talents.)  I will say though… I have thoroughly enjoyed the few times that G has suffered through a glass of wine or champagne, just because he knew it would make me happy.  On our engagement trip… G ordered my favorite type of wine (Cabernet Sauvignon) and attempted to choke a glass of it down.  This was after he spent half an hour trying to track down a cork screw, only to discover that we, in fact, had been given a corkscrew with the bottle.  It was fairly comical, but I appreciated every single moment of it.

Anywho… that glass (or two) of wine, jazz, and pizza has put me into a serene state of sleepyness.  So… off to bed I go.  Tomorrow, I promise a post about things I pink fluffy heart.  Until then, thanks for reading my post about mostly nothing; my brain should be functioning again by tomorrow.

Lessons in English

Posted in Randomness at 2:06 PM by TKWatson

I was pulling out from the driveway of my parents’ house yesterday and a car down the street caught my eye.

I drove down the street to see if what I thought I saw, was really, in fact, what I was seeing.

Yes.  Yes it was.

I had to take a picture to share.

This is what I saw:

UHHHH……. WHAT?!?

So… then I thought… well… maybe it was an accident.  Maybe the spelling on the back windshield will be right.

I drove around to see this:

WRONG! (0 for 2)

Now… I don’t claim to be a great speller.  In fact, I’ll admit that I’m a pretty bad speller most of the time.  But I don’t typically spell four letter words wrong.  And I definitely don’t typically spell four letter words wrong ON MY CAR.  (Do we need to push to have spell check added as the next standard feature in cars…?)

I just can’t seem to understand how on earth this happened.  My parents’ neighborhood is a nice, middle class neighborhood.  Not a place where I would expect to find a bunch of illiterate people.  Not exactly a car I would expect to be driven by an illiterate person.

Maybe this person is dyslexic?  In which case… I feel really bad for making fun of them… but seriously… maybe you should ask someone else to do the writing on the car?  Or at least have someone else check the writing on the car?  Just a thought.

I just… uhhh… ummm… I mean….

Ugh.

There are no words.

Except: SAEL.
