The Power Company, also known in these parts as Met-Ed (First Energy), pulled a power play on us last week. Last Tuesday, as a matter of fact. Just as I was getting ready to fix Little Dude a hot breakfast and get myself a cup of coffee to get started on visiting all my RTT peeps, the power company shut off our power without warning and didn’t turn it back on for almost 30 hours. Longest 30 hours of my life. I’ll be venting about that on Friday. Today I want to keep it light and fun.
So my apologies to all you awesomely loyal Random Tuesday Thought Rebelers – I don’t think I ended up having a chance to get around to any of you last week, so I’ll be making up for it this week. Here’s hoping Mother Nature’s thunderstorms today don’t decide to wipe out our power or internet, since there’s no one I can call about that. Well, I suppose there’s no difference between that and Met-Ed. Just sayin’.
Speaking of crazy… I saw this floating around on Facebook last week:
That’s kind of sweet and creepy all rolled into one. I probably better not show this to Princess Nagger, she might be insulted that I would never get a tattoo of one of her drawings. The crazy creatures with lots of teeth and claws would not be very sexy.
In other news… Just before Christmas I ordered some cordless wine bottle openers for some of my family members since I’m always giving them Princess Nagger Wine, and I figured I’d make it easier for them to open said wine with a cool wine opener.
Of course I ordered myself one, too, because they’re cool. Even though I had a different one that the hubby got me for a birthday one year, I figured having one in the bar and one in the kitchen was a brilliant idea. Over the next eight months I opened approximately six bottles of wine – well five-and-a-half, because with the sixth one, this happened:
Broken. Beyond repair. And obviously outside the return window for Amazon. I’m thinking I should just contact Oster directly to see if they’ll stand behind their product. What do you think?
Jen shared this cool hint/tip by way of Pinterest (I think – it was almost two weeks ago, I’m behind on sharing) on how to separate egg yolks with a plastic bottle. I found the video demonstration for you to check out:
Now I’m wanting to make something that takes a lot of egg whites just to try that new trick out.
I stumbled across a hilarious website called smartphOWNED – fail autocorrects and awkward parent texts. There are some racy ones on there (naturally) but man I was giggling and laughing like a 12 year old boy reading all of them. Here are a couple of tame ones:
And that’s a wrap for this week – link up and join in the fun. I’m looking forward to catching up on your randomness this week. Thanks for being fellow rebels.
Keeping the random alive – feel free to snag a badge and play along – one for my wino friends:
And one for my non-wino friends:
