You guys are the best Rebels a girl could ask for. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement and obvious patience with my dilemma of crap internet connection and basement dwelling prohibiting me from being the good hostess I like to be. You are all too kind. And you have spoken – no hiatus!
That works for me, because I love reading your comments on my crazy random – and reading your random is a bright beacon in this foggy time of transition whilst we are stuck in the ‘hurry-up-and-wait’ mode. I don’t do well with HUAW. Just sayin’.
Princess Nagger had a blast dressing up as Katniss for Halloween:
She was tickled when one of the houses we stopped at actually recognized her/knew what she was dressed up as – they told her they’d give her three pieces of candy if she promised not to shoot them with a compound bow. That totally made her night.
She was having second thoughts about the whole wig thing as I was trying to cram all her blonde tresses in it – she contemplated going as a blonde Katniss instead – “Kitness, the long lost blonde twin of Katniss”.
She cracks me up.
Speaking of cracking up… I don’t know if you saw my post about the Stride Rite shoes I got to review for the kids – Little Dude got some cool new kicks that fit right in with his Firefighter costume:
Aren’t those cute? And they were a godsend when Little Dude didn’t come right back down the sidewalk of one house – instead he followed a crowd of people going back the way we had come. Those shoes have really bright light-up LED’s in them – I saw the lights flashing almost a block away heading away from us.
I was able to yell loud enough for him to stop and turn around – and I was relieved when I saw those same bright flashing lights come quickly back towards us. For the rest of the evening those flashing lights were a comforting sight.
Speaking of comforting sight (or in this case, maybe not so much)… If you follow me on Facebook, you would have seen that I posted about Little Dude’s encounter with a brick wall:
Poor guy! I couldn’t quite get the right angle – he had a nice sized goose egg on his head where you see the bruise – he apparently was running in the playground holding hands with a girl when he crashed into a brick wall.
I’ll let that sink in for a minute.
When I asked him if he was looking at the little girl when he ran into the wall, he said “No, I was looking at the playground.” Apparently his mind was already fixed on his next ‘move’ – the slide or swings after his hand-holding run with the little girl.
Never a dull moment.
The bump on the head didn’t slow Little Dude down – not one iota. Kind of like the mouse in this video:
That’s a wrap for this week – you know the drill, 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.
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:
I’m also linking up with two stellar ladies, Shawn and Impulsive, the lovely hosts of Talk To Us Tuesday. Though they’ve been AWOL for a few months – we might need to storm their castle and find out if they fell in their moat or something.
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 Google decided to boycott non-Blogger blogs. The Tuesday hops seems to have diminished – if you have one let me know and I’ll add you here, too!
