Was making Fiance and myself French toast for dinner a few nights ago and I grabbed what I *thought* was cinnamon from the cabinet to sprinkle in the egg mixture (four eggs, btw).  I just looked at the color of it, didn’t turn it around to read the label and make sure I was actually using cinnamon.  After I mixed the stuff up really well, I put the spice back in the cabinet and just so happened to look up.  Staring back at me was the label that read, “Cajun”.  Ugghhh!  So, four eggs down the drain later, I dug through the cabinet to find the cinnamon (which was all the way in the back).

Well… Monday I broke our blender (the glass part) 🙁

It was a really nice Cuisinart one that my mom had given me when I first moved out on my own. It was red.

Fiance helped me clean up the glass, and we looked at the parts and said “do we want to save the blade and this part”, and I say “oh! I think that’s all one piece, and we’ll just replace the whole thing.”

Of course, it’s not, so now we have to get a new blade, lip thingy AND glass.

Sigh…

@Pinksapphire: Oh man! I’ve done that, but with tomatoes. I’ve bought the “with green chilis” kind from Trader Joe’s (the packaging is almost identical), and throw it into pasta sauce… to discover the flavors are WAY off.

I slaughtered a plant! lol.  I have this giant elephant ear plant that is quite heavy.  We were under a freeze warning last night so I had to move it from the porch to inside.  No problem doing that.  But, when I tried to put it on the little mat, the wheel got caught, it turned over sideways, breaking 1 Aquaglobe, smashing into the glass door and snapped half the plant off.  At first I panicked, but it was funny after I made sure the glass door wasn’t broken.

Somehow managed to see a red left-turn arrow and not register it in my brain because I went right through it! SO: “That was a red arrow…”  Me: “It was, wasn’t it…”  haha

Just the other day I was at lunch with some friends/coworkers and made a comment about all the people wearing purple shirts that day and I must not have got the “memo”. My best friend (who I got a job with me) looks at me and says “really?” and pans her eyes downward.

Turns out I had gotten the “memo”. I was wearing purple… just not my long sleeve DARK purple shirt I was picturing in my closet.

FAIL.

@sleepingbeauty88: lol, oh that’s a good one. Last Monday I noticed my boss wearing a pretty orange sweater that I’d never seen her wear before. Then I notice 2-3 other people wear orange. What was going on, I wondered?

Oh. It was halloween. I was fully prepared in my gray and purple.

As for truly dumb things – we’d need a whole ‘nother thread for that!

@sleepingbeauty88:  Hahaha!  That’s cute.

@hisgoosiegirl: Haha, oh….it’s Hallowe’en.  🙂

Last weekend, I lost my keys and couldn’t go anywhere I had planned – I was so frustrated.  I looked all over the house; I even had Fiance helping me.  The entire couch was turned up on it’s back, we pulled out all the cushions, took out a flashlight and searched around my car and inside it as well, we were doing all sorts of CSI investigating all over our house.  I looked in ridiculous places like the microwave, and I told everyone I knew that I’d lost them.  Long stort short, I found them late at night….in my purse.  I had looked in it probably about 15 times that day and I THOUGHT I had taken everything out.  Ugh.  I felt like such a moron.  On the bright side, Fiance laughed so hard and for so long that he could barely catch his breath and he wasn’t upset that we’d spent such a long time looking.

@Juliepants: I did that with my phone once! We had gone Christmas shopping about 40 minutes away at a HUGE mall that Darling Husband and I had walked through all day. Get back to my apt and couldn’t find phone. Went through my car, my apt, started calling stores we had walked in to see if they had one turned in. I was completely panicked as we were going home for Christmas break the next day so I didn’t have time to walk that mall again. Went back out to my car yet again, and there it was. Right smack dab in the middle of the frickin’ driver’s seat.

That is my proof that ghosts exist. Because NO WAY did I miss that!

@hisgoosiegirl: Yes!  Ghosts!  There was really no other explanation for my keys going missing, either!  The most embarrassing/amusing part was that I posted that I lost them on my fb and had about 20 friends giving me suggestions on where to look and comiserating with me.  I couldn’t bring myself to tell them that they’d been in my purse all along, but I did let them know the search was over.  Thank goodness you found your phone!

@MrsLongcoatPeacoat: Glad I’m not the only one, then! 🙂
