Random Musings Friday…

I don’t know what happened to me this week.  I must have been walking around in a bubble or something…because I hardly noticed anything interesting/random/amusing.  I think the week just got away from me and before I knew it, it was already Thursday.  Luckily I did manage to pull out a few things, so here are this week’s random musings…

  • I like to listen to other people’s conversations because I’m nosy…and I overheard these two guys talking about their upcoming weekend plans.  If I had to guess I’d say they were around 22 and possibly just out of college.  One guy was lamenting about being so broke because he just had his oil changed that he was going to have to wait to go out drinking until after payday.  He said “Man…that’s the thing that sucks the most…having to pay for stuff I never had to worry about before.”  Yup…it sucks.  It’s called being an adult.  Welcome to the club.
  • Thanks to Hutch, I read the most awesome news story this week.  Apparently, a man was arrested…here in good old Connecticut…for stealing $188 worth of deodorant.  He did so by shoving said deodorant down his pants.  After I stopped laughing, I had to wonder…what, exactly, would someone do with 58 sticks of deodorant?  Is there a big deodorant black market out that of which I am unaware?  If I was the judge in this case, that would have to be my first question.  Want to know the scary part…when I Googled this story, I found quite a few other stories of different people doing this.  I guess it really is a thing.  Who knew?
  • Also, thanks to Hutch, I bought a memory foam mattress topper.  I believe this might be the greatest invention since the wheel.  Seriously…this thing is awesome.  My only complaint is that it makes the mattress so high that it kind of looks silly…but I don’t care.  It’s like sleeping in heaven.  If you don’t have one, I recommend you go out right now and purchase one.  It will change your life.
  • I read this story about a guy who put six bulldog puppies in a suitcase and left it next to a dumpster with the puppies’ mom sitting next to it.  Luckily some people found the bag and let the puppies out.  The Humane Society has taken custody of them now.  They also found the guy who put them there…because he left a tag on the suitcase with all his personal information on it…so they were able to arrest him.  It really takes a special kind of stupid to do something like that.  I’m so happy they were able to arrest his ass.

And lastly…

  • My mother is a terrible influence on me.  I bought this coconut guava cake for Easter and there was so much food that no one ate it.  A few nights later, my mom had a slice…and then another…and so on.  She has been raving about this cake for days now.  Since they ate the whole thing, my mom made a special trip to Shop Rite to buy another one.  This time she got a cherry one.  And again…she’s been raving about it for days.  Finally, last night…at 10pm…I gave in to my massive craving and went and bought one for myself.  I ate three slices…and really, I wanted to just put the whole thing on a plate and have at it.  I managed to restrain myself…but I don’t think that cake is going to last long in my house.

That’s all for this week.  Pretty good, considering I spent about 5 days completely oblivious to the world around me.  I hope everyone has a great weekend.  Don’t forget to grab the button and link up below.  And make sure you tell all your friends…let’s see if we can get 10 people linked up this week!


  1. It’s amazing what people will put down their pants. I knew a guy who stole a pool stick from a bar once by putting it down his pants. A whole freaking pool stick. Of course he was like 6’2″…

    I’m a little surprised that you didn’t email me pictures of said guava cake last night. Too busy shoveling to pause for a pic? 😉 Also, I had no idea Rite Aid was selling cake now. Is that…like …next to the band-aids? Or the Pepto?

  2. I posted something for the first time in a month! It just to happens to be a Random Musings post. :)

    Memory foam mattresses are awesome! We just got one about a year ago. Absolutely love it. I’m thinking we should have just got the topper and not the whole mattress though, because now we have to move it and it’s super heavy.

    Why would the guy put the puppies in the suitcase? Why not just take them to the humane society and drop them off or something?

    Hey…how’s your dad doing?

  3. So here’s the skinny on the deodorant…

    Drug addicts steal it. They also steal Tide in the big orange bottles. Why? Because Tide and deodorant don’t have an expiration date, really, and they’re expensive. So the dealers will accept these as payment. There was a front page article about it in our paper a few weeks ago, coincidentally around the same time all of this stuff went down with Ryan. It’s crazy!
