Random,  Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday – Scatterbrained

Do you ever feel as though your brain never shuts off and it isn’t like you’re sitting around solving all world’s problems, it’s just a random collection of thoughts? Same.

2003, that’s what. Back before it was trendy to be ashamed of the President and openly mock him, Natalie Maines made a rather innocuous comment about GW (my pet name for Bush) that completely ruined their career. You could compare the situation to the Kathy Griffith debacle but that was straight nuts. I just cannot believe that they never bounced back from that, they were so huge in the early 00’s.

Like the pasta I had for dinner last night and of course, I made enough for an army and get to eat it for the rest of the week. I don’t know what happened, I wasn’t really paying attention when I made it so maybe I just left an ingredient out.

Target headquarters are in Minneapolis and the Twin Cities metro has some amazing Targets. They are all being remodeled and I hate the new stores, they feel like enormous H&M’s with groceries. Which works if you want a store that makes you feel really un-trendy and old but that’s why I don’t go into H&M. I can’t shop at Target now and what did they do with all of the waste they created? Totally lame, some of the stores in my area were only 3-5 years old. There should be moratorium on the building or remodeling of brick and mortar stores because 1) retail is dying and 2) climate change, assholes.

On both sides, please.

Profiling of shitty cars is a real thing, at least in the area that I live in. I will get pulled over for having a crack in my windshield in my rusty POS before someone going 80 in a school zone, texting and doing shots of Wild Turkey will if they are driving a bright, shiny SUV. Then, while I am being lectured for said crack, 10 people will drive by breaking a myriad of driving laws and probably littering. It’s ridiculous. Should I get the crack fixed? Yea, probably but drivers should also be cited for not cleaning their snowy cars off and having ice balls fly of their roofs and into people’s windshields, which is how it happened. Also, stop driving with earbuds in – it’s dangerous and your music probably sucks anyway. Geez.

How come it only applies to animals and not human beings (who are also animals)? Have you seen the new lids on Tide Pod containers? Ridiculous. I’m going back to liquid which is what everyone else could have done if their kids couldn’t stop ingesting poison.

I saw a bologna loaf at the grocery store – I didn’t know that it came in loaves or that anyone still ate it. Now, I ate my fair share of bologna sandwiches as a kid but I didn’t think kids were into it anymore. Do you eat bologna? Let me know.

I know that she is off changing the world on some tour but I just purchased the Mini Star Palette because I wanted to see if the formula was different than the big one and I need her sage anti-consumerism advice in my life. Is anyone else completely losing it over all of the sets on Sephora currently?! I can’t.

Or unfriend if we are talking about the cesspool, social wasteland that is Facebook. I see this disclaimer  to be a pigheaded asshole used a lot and I don’t get it. I don’t think that anyone would say this in real life. Can you imagine? Out to dinner with let’s say a vegan friend and when they start to order their food you say, Unfriend me and you walk out. Of course not! That just wouldn’t happen because it’s asinine. If you have a very strong opinion about something that you are really passionate about, you should be willing to debate it and defend it to anyone. Where all think alike, no one thinks very much. (Walter Lippmann). I just don’t think there’s any harm in being willing to have thoughtful discussion. Unless someone’s an anti-Semite or defending a serial killer, obviously there are exceptions here.

Legit though, I need to know. I am still waiting on Reddit to solve it.

What’s on your mind?

    OMG i love this post so much, so many thoughts 🙌🏻 HATE when you’re excited to eat something & it doesn’t come out as you hoped 😭 LOLG OMG let me know if anyone says they still eat bologna, haven’t had it in like 20 years & i NEED to know if people still eat it!!

    My dad eats German Bolgna but it has to be a certain brand. No other brand will do. So, naturally, my son eats it too. I have never liked bolgna and never will eat it. I couldn’t get past the texture issue. The same with spam. I just can’t.

      Now that you say that, I am wondering if they weren’t promoting it as some sort of Oktoberfest cuisine? It was on a display and I have never seen a bologna display 😀 I’ll look closer next time. Same, I just can’t with the texture but I used to eat it all the time as a kid!

    Hahaha Iaughed out loud a few times here, Stella. 😂 Especially at the “unfriend me” restaurant scenario.

    I hate when I’m excited for food that doesn’t taste right, it’s so heartbreaking. I also think it’s ridiculous that cops pick on people with shittier cars?! Not fair at all! A crack in your windshield is 100x less dangerous than someone wearing earbuds. (Can’t believe how you got the crack in the first place, lol! Sorry for laughing!)

    I used to eat bologna a lot as a kiddo and my boyfriend actually still buys it all the time still so I’ll have a piece once in awhile lol. He loves a bologna & cheese sammy.

      Hahaha! I work for the city that I constantly get pulled over in too. Like, can I get some preferential treatment 😂 I drive a shitty car because I don’t want a car payment! Oh my God, I was so mad – people and their ice balls.

      Right?! Definitely remember eating as a kid but not something I’ve looked for as I’ve gotten older. Doesn’t sound too bad 😉
