Okay I’m sure I have ton of these but something my friend said yesterday stands out . . .

We were driving past some old crappy houses, probably built around early 1900’s, not taken care of, mostly wood/vinyl siding.  Anyway she asks “Hey do you think these houses were built before they invented brick?”

For silly? In the paper I’m writing right now (talking about how culture effects behavior and is structured by the environment) I’m comparing my marching band to the LAPD. Does that count? It’s utterly ridiculous. At one point I talk about the “disruption of the aesthetic appeal of form in the set”.

But for actual actions- in a single afternoon I walked into a tree (or two), tripped over a footstone (or three) and over a spigot (just one). I did manage to avoid knocking into any headstones so that is an accomplishment. Thankfully, I’ve avoided repeat incidents lately. Though I did almost step on a squirrel last week- stupid thing kept trying to keep an eye on me by walking slowly backwards, in the direction I was going. And our squirrels here are mean!

Yes, I go through periods where I’m often doing silly things. Sunday I was standing on a street corner talking to my boyfriend. I was getting thirsty and tried to twist the cap off my water bottle. While we were chatting I continued to try and twist it off but it just wasn’t budging. So I squeezed harder trying to get a better grip and it still wouldn’t budge. I looked down and saw that there was no cap on the bottle.  Embarassed I had already taken it off and forgotten that I had. My boyfriend laughed SO hard.

I was coaching, with mostly college girls on the team. I was trying to psych them up for the last game, and I told them something like, “Just fucking go out there and make every catch, I don’t fucking care, if I see you jogging I’m not fucking putting you in again, you’re all in the best shape of your lives, and the time for jogging was 2 months ago, and we’re going to win if we just go out there and run like fucking crazy.” And then I remembered there was a 12-year-old on the team. And her mom was there. Fortunately, her mom just lolled. I was pretty embarrassed though.

I was out to sushi with Ginge and his friends yesterday and we were talking about my computer’s overheating problem. Ginge mentioned that we could use a vaccuum to suck all the dust out of the vents and I go:

“Oh my god, you know how to switch vaccuum cleaners to sucking mode?!

They all just look at me like, “really?”. It took me a little while to figure out what I said. For whatever reason, I thought he meant blow the dust out and blowing mode.

I’m still red in the cheeks about it. Way to make myself look smart and mature in front of his grown-up (28 year old) friends.

I put my car keys in the refrigerator on top of the I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter. I can’t believe I did that.

I was pretty excited about the first pregnant belly I’ve ever touched.  (I’m 27) I think it’s awesome and not at all what I thought it would be.  A few monthly later I went to a baby shower and I asked another friend there if she’s ever touched a pregnant belly “..cause I have and it’s just the coolest thing ever and maybe you can see if pregnant friend will let you.” She stared at me and then it sank in quickly.  She’s an Ultrasound Sonographer.  I said “I did not just say that, I really want to take that back!”  And she laughed and laughed and said “do you know how many I touch a day?”  It was so funny!

I started making a batch of yeast dough for some cinnamon rolls. I let it sit on the counter so it could rise while I was making supper, and when I checked on it, it wasn’t rising. Hmm, okay, maybe I’m just being antsy and checking it too soon. Check on it again about thirty mins later, and nada. Flat as a flitter. Then it dawns on me. I forgot to put the yeast in. *Facepalm*   I dumped it out and started over, this time making sure to put the yeast on the counter, where I can’t miss it. It was in the pantry, out of sight, out of mind earlier when I forgot it. Oh, what a genius.

@Wonderwoman217: Don’t feel bad, I had to add 3 batches of yeast to the cinnamon rolls I made this week because the first two were not the active rise dry yeast that the recipe called for.
