Random Tuesday Thoughts – DST News and Horses

randomtuesday
WooHoo! I love Tuesday’s and I love Keely over at The Un-Mom – she hosts this fun weekly Random Tuesday thing, and since I love to be Random, Keely has made Tuesday’s special! ๐Ÿ˜‰

This just in: Daylight Savings Time Sucks Pond Water. I mean, I do love that the sun sets ‘later’ in the evening, but why don’t we just ‘Save’ Daylight year ’round instead of only part of the year? Then we wouldn’t have to deal with losing that precious hour every year…and the sun would then still be setting later in the evening, wouldn’t it? Makes sense to me…and obviously to the places that don’t observe any kind of ‘time’ change to ‘save’ daylight… ๐Ÿ™‚

Apparently the Princess Nagger’s ‘dispenser’ is broken…at least that’s her story when she copped an attitude the other day:

Me: “You need to dispense with the attitude!”

PN: “I can’t – my dispenser is broken because there’s a piece of candy stuck in it so it won’t work and I won’t ever eat that candy again!”

OhhKaay… Moving on…

I’ve mentioned before that my hubby is the Absent Minded Professor…he gets lost in his own world of thought more often than not. We all do, of course, but not so much so that we leave cupboard doors or drawers hanging open after we’ve gotten what we need out of them. Or at least not those of us who have a touch of OCD. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I can always tell if hubby has had a midnight jaunt to the kitchen…there will invariably be a cupboard door hanging open, or the silverware drawer is still open…and then the kitchen sink, which I left empty and clean the night before, will be sporting evidence of his midnight snack – an empty cereal bowl with a spoon, or just a spoon if he was eating ice cream directly from the carton. He’s lucky he has a fast metabolism – his midnight snacks tend to be a fairly regular gig! ๐Ÿ˜‰
Speaking of gigs…up until a few years ago, my hubby played in a band that had gigs a couple of times a month – they played mostly Old Time Rock’n’Roll and New Country, so they did participate in some unique gigs. Like the Equestrian one. All horse lovers congregated in one location – with their horses. This was a really big deal, because I’ve mentioned in passing that my hubby is afraid of horses…I mean seriously afraid. When he was a small child, he was giving a sugar cube to a horse once – but no one told him to feed the horse that sugar cube from his open palm…so instead, he attempted to give the sugar cube to the horse via his finger tips…we all know what happened then, don’t we? He got bit by the horse. Unintentionally, of course, but bit just the same. So ever since then he’s been afraid of horses. I laugh when we drive past a pasture with horses in it, because he’ll hit the automatic locks on the door – while we’re driving past – just in case. Just in case of what? In case they jump over the fence to attack. Yep, that’s what’s in his mind.

But back to that Equestrian gig – picture it…it’s like a huge campground for horses and their owners – every ‘campsite’ had a horse and/or a trailer with a horse. The horses were everywhere. We went for a walk before the gig was to start, and we had to make sure we walked on the opposite side of the path from where the horses were…and since they were pretty much on both sides, we had to walk in a zig-zag. I gave him such a hard time – especially when one of the horses snorted…he asked “What kind of a sound do horses make before they attack?” I don’t think I ever laughed so hard… Then of course he thought it was suspicious they kept shaking their heads and swishing their tails…I told him if he had flies buzzing around his face and butt, he’d be doing the same thing…

When we were visiting our friends in Louisiana last summer, the subject of my hubby’s fear of horses came up…particularly since his new GPS took us on a route through major horse territory on the trip down. He thought it was a conspiracy, that someone had hacked into his GPS to make sure our route was filled with nothing but the sight of horses. Our friends have a neighbor who owns a horse, so they talked hubby into facing his fears and at least petting the horse – and they even had him talked into sitting on the horse so we could get a picture. But unfortunately, that friend didn’t like to get up before noon – and with our kids getting up at 6am every day during our vacation week down there, we were already off and running by noon, so we never got to meet him and his horse. But we have plans to get hubby on a horse this summer when we go back for our annual visit. It’s gonna happen. ๐Ÿ˜‰

And for my final shot of randomness… My hubby has a genius I.Q. – but for some reason, he severely lacks in the ‘common sense’ area…how can someone so ‘genius’ lack the basics of ‘common sense’? Doesn’t make sense to me… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. I agree – Daylight Savings hosed us this year. Toddlers do not understand “let’s go to bed early tonight. Let’s eat lunch early. In fact, let’s do everything one hour, earlier. Howzat?” We’re still getting used to it, and over our crankiness about it!

    Great randomness.. your husband sounds hilarious (even if he doesn’t try.)

  3. “DST Sucks Pond Water!” LOL! Can I steal that and take it for my own? My kids have been sleeping later than usual, but at bedtime? They have trouble getting to sleep, which cuts into my ADULT TIME!

  4. Daylight savings-my nemisis. Your child comparing herself to a pez dispenser=Priceless.
    I LOVE the last horse picture, I needed that! HA! What plug in are you using for the similar posts? I’ve been seeing that around and I think it looks awesome!

  5. I never thought about locking the door to keep the horses out! LOL! That made me laugh so hard. Sorry your little princess’s dispenser is broke. Good luck getting him up on a horse this year. I’m betting it won’t happen.

  6. Okay girl, this was a seriously cool post. My hubby does the SAME THING with kitchen cabinets and drawers and it drives me bonkers!
    But his fear of horses is kind of hysterical, just because of how far he takes that fear. Locking the car door? Bwwwwaaaaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaa! It bit his FINGERS, not his FACE! LOL

  7. Ha, her dispenser was broken, that’s genius! Horses are cool and all but they’re BIG and can squish you. I got stepped on by one as a kid. Stupid horses. Happy Tuesday!

  10. Crazy, isn’t it? But oh so funny! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll let you know if Princess Nagger does any repair work to her dispenser…(snicker!) Yeah, you’re probably right – we might not get him up on a horse this summer, but we’re sure gonna try…and you KNOW it’ll make for good blog fodder with all the pictures that will be taken! ๐Ÿ˜‰ (snicker!)

  11. Oh, thank GOD I’m not alone with a hubby who leaves cupboard doors and drawers hanging open…I thought I was losing my mind! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hubby’s fear of horses is absolutely hysterical, isn’t it? Especially with how far he takes it…I just shake my head and roll my eyes…and it’s even funnier to hear Princess Nagger pipe up from the backseat “Get over it, Dada!!” LOL!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks a bunch for stopping by, Justine! ๐Ÿ™‚

  12. I wonder if there are any groups out there protesting the time change? And I’d still like to throttle the guy who ‘invented’ it, but I think he’s already dead… ๐Ÿ˜‰ I totally agree that horses are not as scary as chimps…maybe I’ll have to use that as a comparison with hubby to get him to understand…heh, heh! Thanks so much for stopping by, Mrs. Bear! ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. It’s OK, Elizabeth, you’re allowed to laugh at hubby’s fear of horses…he doesn’t seem to mind the laughter…and it seems to be making him think twice about being scared – we figure if we keep whittling away at it, he’ll get over it and maybe he’ll actually sit on a horse this summer! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    And DST is TOTALLY kicking my butt, too… ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. Princess Nagger is insisting we get him something horse-related for his birthday next month… Maybe I’ll have to get the Black Beauty DVD and change the DVD Cover to ‘When Horses Attack’. He might not appreciate it, though…(grin!!) Thanks for stopping by, Keely! And thanks for hosting Random Tuesday! ๐Ÿ™‚

  15. Princess Nagger does come up with some doozies… ๐Ÿ˜‰ You’re right, Casey – but don’t tell hubby that you got ‘squished’ as a kid by a horse…he’ll have more reasons to stay away from them…even though he’s a full grown adult… We should, though, maybe start him off at ‘The Land of Little Horses’ first… You know, Shetland Ponies… ๐Ÿ˜‰
