Remember how I was ragging on Mother Nature to get her menopausal meds in order since she was having a hot-flash just last week? Yeah, about that. When I wanted winter to finally arrive, I meant in the form of snow, not have the highs for the day be in the teens. Seriously. 30-32 with copious amounts of snow apparently needs to be special ordered. I guess I’ve been falling down on the job bribing the snow fairies the last couple of years.
Speaking of bribery… Apparently Princess Nagger has become immune to bribery. Or at least not quite as interested as she once was. I finally did get her the coveted Minecraft Lego set she was really hoping Santa would bring at Christmas (he didn’t, because he would have had to get it at Lego.com and they were out of stock even for him). I haven’t told her I got it, just that if she would clean the atrocious mess of hers in the living room – and keep it clean for a full week – I’d get her the Minecraft Lego set.
10 days later her mess still remains and she hasn’t made any effort to clean it up. I’m thinking later today, while she’s at school, I’m going to start filling a box for eBay since that’s what the opposite end of the bribery spectrum is.
Speaking of Princess Nagger… she has been guffawing at a video she ran across whilst watching Minecraft videos. She kept pestering me to watch it, and when I finally did, I understood why it made her laugh so hard. Here, you might need a laugh:
Now she goes around the house saying “Hello, I’m a Mac.” Once she gets your attention she performs the entire video in person and verbatim – complete with mimicking their accents and everything. Definitely an entertainment factor.
Speaking of entertainment factor… I saw a link to this on MSN last week and had to click over – now I have to share with you because it’s hilarious. This little cutie is very serious about playing the xylophone during a school concert:
If only I could get Princess Nagger as enthusiastic to practice and/or play her choice of musical instruments this year for 4th grade, the clarinet. Or clean up her mess in the living room.
Speaking of mess… We still haven’t finished cleaning out the basement after Hurricane Sandy decided to flood it out – the hubby was going to take care of it while I was on my trip to Maytag, but apparently didn’t get around to it. He finally got it halfway cleaned out then stalled. Again.
So my dining room is a disaster as makeshift storage with stacks of stuff that should be in the basement instead of the dining room – I’m wondering if I’m going to have to wait for the basement to be cleaned out when it’s time for us to move instead of sooner like I’d like. Sometimes being married to an Absent Minded Professor can be frustrating when he ‘forgets’ to do things he was going to do, and I don’t want to be a nag. I wonder if bribery would work on him?
I’m keeping it short and sweet for this week since I know you all have busy lives – link up and join in the fun – everyone is welcome, random or not. Be sure to visit your fellow randomizers so they don’t feel so lonely.
I’m trying something new with thumbnail linkies – let me know if you love it or hate it because I can always go back to the regular link linky:
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:
More Tuesday hops – if you’re stopping by here from there, please do me a favor and follow via LinkyFollowers – since I was robbed of my GFC followers when the cads at Goggle decided to boycott non-Blogger blogs.
