November 2014 Fly on the Wall: The Extremely Random Edition

Fly on the WallFor those of you that read this monthly, you know what this post is all about…

For those of you that might be first-timers, let me explain what this is.  Fly on the Wall is a collection of snippets from everyday life that by themselves wouldn’t make a whole post.  Participating bloggers all post simultaneously, because the more the merrier!  You not only get to read my randomness, but other people’s fun as well.  Stay tuned at the bottom of this post for links to other Fly on the Wall posts.

Let’s face it, my life is a bunch of random snippets, folks.  Without further ado, let me present the mostly adult quotes I’ve collected this month.  It’s not that my children aren’t funny these days, it’s just that the adults have had more unusual things to say lately.

But first we have the mandatory Halloween photo:

Princess Hello Kitty and Minecraft’s Super Steve. A lot of swearing went into making that Steve head.

Me: “Thanks for the kiss before you left this morning”
Evil Genius: “I gave you a kiss before I left?”
Me: “Yes”
Evil Genius: “Are you sure it was me?”
Me: “Who else would it be?”
Evil Genius: “I don’t know, but that doesn’t sound like me at all.”

Me: “Oh forget it! Just go back to your own little world over there!”
Evil Genius: “You have it wrong. It’s a big world, just very low population density!”

 Jack-o-Lantern Pizza.  Apparently it's a tradition now.

Evil Genius: (spitting into the sink) “I don’t know where all that hair in my mouth came from”
Me: “Maybe your beard is growing inward.”
Evil Genius: “Really? Are you telling me I have an In-grown beard?”

The kids desperately wanted to carve a pumpkin.  Or rather, they wanted someone ELSE to carve it.  Nonsense-dad put them to work pulling out the guts.

Evil Genius’s female coworker: “Men sometimes don’t get the non verbal communication.”
Evil Genius: “No no, we get it! We just choose to ignore it.”

We had just finished watching the movie Chef.
Evil Genius: “What was that movie about?”
Me: “It was about the relationship between him and his son.  It was like Real Steel, only without giant robots.”

The Professor ran his first official 5K with dad. He ran all but about ten blocks of it!

While the Professor had a pretty good time of it, I did not.  A couple of blocks in I slipped on loose gravel and fell hard, skidding across the pavement.  I got back up and kept going, but ended up finishing fourth from the end.  I discovered later that I’d taken all the skin off of one knee and was bleeding.  Not my best moment-since then I’ve tried to get back into things.  I just downloaded the Couch to 5K app and hope to start on that next week.  We shall see!

So I went back red.  It's hard to tell just how red in this picture, but I assure you it's very pretty.

Things overheard in my house recently:

“VETO! No one is duct taping anyone!”

“My eyes hurt having heard that.”

“Never season angry!”

“Will you get that pizza off your head?”

“I have not yet lost my superpower, my ability to determine obscure roles by actors you’ve never heard of.”

I went to the doctor this past month and she was completely honest with me.  She told me I was seriously depressed.  I’m working on getting better, but unfortunately I have a long way to go.  I have several posts just gathering dust in my inbox as I try to put the right words in them so that they can be published.  Anything coming out of this brain these days isn’t exactly publish-worthy material-so I hope you enjoyed this post.

So getting through one day at a time.  An Iron Man shirt makes every day better though.

  1. One day at a time is the best you can do and good for you for doing that! You have a wonderful family to support and love you. Love the hair color and crackiing up over the ingrown beard comment. I LOVED the movie Chef!

  2. LOVE the red – it’s the perfect color for you! “Never season angry” is good advice. I can just see you furiously shaking the cayenne pepper jar.
    I hope you and your doctor can work together to lift your spirits. Until then, we’ll be happy with any writing that you can produce…or we’ll wait patiently. ❤

  3. I love the red hair. Hope the change makes you smile.
    We talked before, I’m sorry about the depression but so glad that you spoke to the doctor. I hope she’s able to help you take all the right steps. I’ll be here rooting for you.

  4. You know what? I have the ‘actors in obscure roles’ superpower, too. I may have passed it on to my son. Time will tell.

    **HUGS** I know what you’re going through. Just do your best. It’s all anyone should ask of you.

  5. We love Papa Murphy’s pizza too. Typically we end up eating it on Halloween as well. 🙂 Your red hair looks great!! I liked the “VETO / duct tape” comment. Hang in there and do what helps you get better!

  6. Thank you for sharing from your heart. Depression is not a fun place to live but you sound like you are on the healing mend. I hope you connect with my blog by email because most days I give words of encouragement or a smile 🙂 You made me hungry for PIZZA – my favorite food – I still have a college palette. You sound better each month and I am glad. And yes, the new color definitely suits you. HUGS
