I'm at a complete loss right now, so this week, my Thursday Thirteen will feature a random list of thoughts fresh from my stream of consciousness.
1…. I really really REALLY hope the military doesn't reactivate my husband.
2.....The speed of light is 186,000 miles/sec
3.....I memorized #2 when I was in the 7th grade on a field trip. It has actually proven to be very useful.
4.... Bamboo can grow 15 feet in 7 days.
5.....I learned that bit of information when the big kids and I were studying Tu B'Shevat for school.
6....Starbucks actually offers the Peppermint Mocha Frappacino year round, but they only put it up on the menu in December. Although, after December, you can't get those nifty little pink peppermint sprinkles on it.
7....The same is true of the Java Chip Frappacino. It may not always be on the menu, but you can get it anyway.
8....That last bit of information came in very handy after my sister had her baby (a homebirth, btw). I headed out to see her and asked what I could bring. Her only request was Starbucks, but she lamented the fact that the Java Chip Frappacino was not on their current menu. I was able to provide her with her chocolaty coffee goodness despite what the menu proclaimed.
9....I've never understood why Kermit sang, "Why are there so many songs about rainbows?" There aren't. There's ONE.
10....Ring ring ring ring ring ring ring banana phone. Although, in my head, it was the dead-pan talking version of the song, but I can't find that right now.
11....Long after our kids stopped watching Caillou, my sister and I will still randomly bust into the theme-song.
12....The Muppet Show is the kids' show that I think had the best theme.
13....I wish surfaces were all self-dusting.
