A Bowl of Mush

I’ve officially re-entered my boring housewife life. I feel like I’m no longer on top of things. I’m all out of notable quotes and witty one-liners. My mind has MUSHED. I no longer search the internet as research for my papers or to look for cool things to teach in the classroom. I merely read blogs and shop for cute shoes.

I guess that’s why I didn’t know that the universe was changing time!!!!

So know you know, too. Daylight Savings Time is being adjusted this year, on March 11th, and lifehacker tells you what electronic products will be affected by the early time change and offers downloads and solutions.

Counting the Days

Did you notice the little banner up there? Yea, that one. The one that is counting down the days until our cruise. Less than two weeks away and I can’t wait!

Of course, I am nowhere near ready. That New Year’s resolution to lose weight before the cruise? Um, didn’t happen. Which creates a domino effect – I have not bought any cute new summer clothes and I have not tried on any of last year’s shorts and skirts. So, I haven’t packed anything.

I love vacations, but I hate packing for them. I always forget something and when your destination is a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean, it can be hard to find a Wal-Mart.
I also have to pack for the kids, who aren’t going with us. They will be staying at their wonderful aunt’s house for a week. It doesn’t get much better.

Which brings me back to – Who cares about ten extra pounds?! I’m going to be in the sunny Caribbean in 13 days. I’ll just forget to pack the camera.

The Subject of Spam

lusty assassinate

german barrette delirious cytolysis

This is just a sampling of the 900 emails in my bulk file today. Why can’t anti-spam programs just reject any subject line that is illogical? I mean really, a German barrette that is giddily dissolving a cell? When does that ever happen and why would I be interested?

If you ever need a laugh, read through some of your trash email subjects. You know, the ones that promise bigger appendages (I really don’t need a “b1gger pen1s”) or that you’ll meet a sexy large single in your area.

My favorite~

Subject: RE: in my toilet

I most certainly did not send out an email about anything in my toilet. On second thought, maybe my husband did!
