Disjointed thoughts of the day

Social media has reminded me that the Olympics start today. I had completely forgotten about it, but I'm glad I won't miss out on any of the magic.

Teething makes no sense. Sometimes I'll just find a new tooth in her mouth and she never gave me a hint that anything was bothering her, and other times (like now) the teething pain turns her into a Stage 5 Clinger.

I finally got my hair fixed over the weekend.

Remember when I got blue streaks put in and it was the stupidest thing I've ever done? Well all that blue quickly turned a sickly green color and I waited for months for it to just keep fading or look better and it turns out that's not a real solution to problem.

Still pretty freaking green

I went back to my usual stylist (the blue was done by someone else) and she was able to make me look like a reasonable adult again. She put red over the green because it covers really well, and also it's still a little more fun than just all brown hair.

 No one has asked "Did you dye your" in days so I'm going to call this a win.

Are you a Crossfitter who wishes you could be more fashionable while you work out? Reebok sneaks? Boring. High heels for a dead lift? Now we're talking!

As long as we're on the topic of mocking people, this picture actually made me laugh out loud yesterday.

The laughing out loud part is noteworthy because I wasn't even on drugs at the time. Here are the rest if you want a giggle.

If you're a creationist or someone who doesn't find mocking bad grammar to be hilarious and I've really offended you with this, then shucks I'm really about that. I hope you can forgive me.

Are you going to watch the Olympics? I'll have it on, but no promises on actually paying attention.

What's the last thing you saw on the internet that made you laugh? I was also really amused by the woman who got arrested for trolling herself.


  1. And just in case that didn't offend anyone...

  2. At least twice I spotted a "there" spelled "their". So they're you go.

  3. love the olympics even though i prefer summer over winter.

    red streaks look good…did i miss the blue ones? never noticed them in any of your pics...

  4. Sadly (and/or amusingly), the grammar mistakes aren't the worst gaffe in those pictures. It's the complete lack of understanding of how the world actually works in order to remain faithful to some book written a couple thousand years ago.

  5. The high-heeled girl is also lifting with her back instead of her legs. And now I've just turned a funny gif into a depressing reality.

  6. oh dear god. Number 22 is one of my BIGGEST pet peeves (behind grammar errors). I've even heard fellow scientists say that same shit.

    I'm trying really hard not to yell at the screen now.

  7. LOL #11 can't even spell the word "human" (in humanist) correctly. You have to be really special to troll yourself online.

  8. Heeheehee...I actually said "Uh...SCIENCE" out loud when I read that one. I was looking on a crochet website for patterns last night and I ran across patterns for crocheted dog collars...with frills and ruffles...modeled by the worlds grumpiest looking Chihuahua. There were at least 20 different patterns, all showing various pictures of this poor rat *cough I mean dog* looking as if it wanted to shit itself, shit on its owner, and jump off a high building simultaneously. I giggled hard.

  9. I like your new hair.

    Maybe the blue dye seeped into your body through your scalp and that is what is causing your back to go all wonky? It's science.

  10. Cause I'm sure there's nothing you'd rather do while your body is temporarily broken, then watch youngsters compete at the top of their game. Fuck them and their go get 'me attitude.
    Kidding. Clearly watching speed skaters in unitards is entertainment like non other.
    On a side note, I'm pulling for you. The body heals, I just hope you don't have to wait too long for yours too.

  11. Putin on the My Little Pony...Pure genuis, it MIGHT be the funnies thing I've seen recently...But mostly because I haven't checked up on the #SochiProblems hashtag for a few hours. I like the new hair color!

  12. I like the opening ceremonies but they don't start till 8pm so it conflicts with my bedtime. Hard choices will have to be made.

    Your new hair looks GORGEOUS, but I think you should have just held out. It's only 6 weeks till St Patricks Day.

  13. I think you can be a Creationist and still use good grammar. Because didn't God like invent grammar when he was making the world in seven days?

  14. I wonder if that lady lifting in heels has back problems? What an idiot. We're watching the Olympics, figure skating right now. I am just yelling random things and my husband thinks I know a lot about figure skating.

  15. Ever since they started letting pros compete I can't stand the Olympics. The fucking dream team ruined it for me. #allhailaloerter.

    The last internet thing that made me laugh was a FB share called something like "why is this kid crying?"

  16. I first read this post on my phone which always misses the movement of gifs...awesome, I know. Now that I can back here to find out how the injections went WHICH YOU HAVEN'T WRITTEN YET, YOU FUCKING SLACKER I get to see the high-heels lifting woman. My response wasn't laughter. I hollered out loud... JESUS CHRIST! But not even he can help her. But he may have had something to do with their sunset.

  17. I love the new hair. I'm starting to get some grey hairs and I'm going to need to color it soon...but I've have totally untreated hair (never used color again after my friend gave me highlights in college - and they were bad) and I'm nervous about it!
