Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.
This one is more scattershot than usual, as the kids start school today and I’m dropping them off and heading out to Starbucks to work on my new project until I have to pick them up a few hours later. Because the first day of school is a half-day.
I might argue with the use of “Real,” but the rest is tough to deny . . .
Open Toed Cupcakes
Sunny went to a shoe-themed birthday party last weekend.
They served these:
I’m not a big fan of platform heels, but these are (wait for it) delicious.
I laughed so hard at this, I woke the kids.
And then we watched it together.
The Beauty of the Internet
Combined with the irony that the brightest red speck in your corner of the map is you.

I’m dying. Those cupcakes!!!
They tasted good, too—red velvet and hazelnut heels!
And? The new project is???
I’m keeping both. Today I felt . . . ducky. 😉
Ha! And yes, keep both!
Okay, the sign at the top?? Brilliant.
Which reminds me…today we went to the library to hoard while making time pass before afternoon kindergarten. I asked the librarian in the kid’s section for something like Juney B. Jones but less annoying (much applause from the other librarians listening) for a just 5-year old who loves Harry Potter, but needs something a little less…something. She hopped up and scooted us around to some chapter books I knew, some I didn’t, we picked up all of them in the hopes of that perfect book for a kid whose reach exceeds his grasp. All this to say, I love librarians.
Point two, they are having their annual book/cd/video donation and I just have to take the time to go through my clutter because what a great thing to be able to do to unload before hitting their book sale next week. Yay! Books to buy to fill in the empty Jenga pieces in my towering books over the bookshelves.
I’m glad to see that your librarians are also anti-Junie. My kids hate those books . . .
Library sales are a huge cyclical thing for us, too. I have a tough time with the unloading part, but the filling in part is a snap.
Have you seen the Geronimo Stilton series (have I asked you that before)? It’s sort of a Timid Yankee Mouse in Dreamland’s Court sort of thing. The pages are visually interesting and the stories are fun.
Ha! Totally what she recommended.
Boo Yah! Nailed it! \o/
I think the internet usage map broke my brain a little bit. In a good way.
It’s very shiny, isn’t it? 😀
