Fill 'Er Up Friday....Random Info To Prepare You For the Weekend

Bare with me, today.  I'm trying something new.

Being that I'm now doing BYOC on Saturday, I miss having to not really think about what I am going to write about on Friday.  So, today, I'm going to try something a little different....and maybe a new weekly segment on the blog.

I'm calling it: Fill 'Er Up Friday.

It's basically gonna just be me sharing random nuggets of information, funny stuff that's happened to me, or other snippets of useless, brainless stuff I want to share with you all... using as little brain power as possible - because it's Friday, and the creative juices are running pretty low.

So, let's get started, and see how this goes....

While listening to Dr. Oz on the radio yesterday morning, I learned that it's better to drink whole milk than it is skim milk.  Whhhaaattt??  I know, right?  Apparently, the "good stuff" is taken out of whole milk to make skim milk - and then it's loaded with sugar.  So, you're basically drinking sugar water.  He says it's far better to drink whole milk and get the nutrients.  He then went on to say that the best milk to drink - if you're trying to lose weight- is 2% milk.  Now you know.  If Dr. Oz said it - then it has to be true, right?  I don't watch Dr. Oz and don't really know much about him - but from what I've heard, he's some form of health I thought it only right to share this exciting news.  No more sugar water for me!!  YAY!!

Apparently, drivers in my area have no idea what this sign means:

This past week, I've seen so many close accidents - with myself being an almost victim - because idiots think that this sign means "Get into the right lane RIGHT NOW! It doesn't matter that there's someone in the right lane - just ram them out of the way".  Hey Idiots:  This sign means, a little further down the road, the right lane is going to end, so start looking for a way to merge.  You've got time, you don't have to try and kill anyone.

Never under estimate the power of a child that is faking being sick so that she can go home from school!  Yesterday, I had my first encounter with a kid who is apparently a daily visitor to the school nurse trying to go home.  The sweet, nurturing person that I am took the opportunity to stop her in her tracks when it came to me... I'm no push over. Or so I thought.  When I say "you can't go to the nurse unless you puke" - she took that as a challenge.  Insert wish is her command.  Holy hairy cheese balls. The lengths some kids will go to... geez.

I am, apparently, a person that can get extremely ticked off by a show as silly as America's Got Talent.  Really, like yell, scream, and act like a spoiled 3 year old.  It's an illness.  I swear, though, that if I hear the judges contradict themselves one more time - I may throw something through my TV.  I'm so tired of hearing them complain when an act decides to try something new....and complain when acts don't try something new.  Quick explanation?  OK:  When an act like Miami All Stars changes up their choreography...the judges bash them, and tell them that they should have stuck to their roots.  Then, an act like the awesome West Springfield Dance team do what they do and have always done....the judges bash them for not changing their act because "it's too predictable".  UGH!! Make up your freakin' minds AGT judges!!  West Springfield were awesome - and it's all your fault they went home.  See what I mean?  It's an illness.  I officially have AGT Anger Disorder. 

School hallways should have distances marked on that I can figure out exactly how much I'm walking each day.  Seriously, after the 8th time of walking up and down a hallway - there has to be some credit given for exercise.  I know that by the end of the day I'm exhausted - and feel like I've had a good workout.  So, every time I whine that I haven't gotten my exercise in for the day - you can sweetly remind me that I've been walking up and down hallways all day long...and that counts for something m'kay?

While I'm thinking about it - for anyone that's not sure of this rule - rounding up can NOT be applied to a person's age.  If I say Justin Bieber is 17, and you say he's 18 and then we find out that he's 17 1/2....that doesn't make us BOTH right.  I don't care how much you've been taught that you round up once hitting that 1/2 way mark...17 1/2 is NOT the same as 18 when we're talking about age. 

Alright, so there's some random thoughts and useless information for ya.  Not sure what I think - I had to use a little more brain power thinking of this stuff than I planned.  I know, can you believe it? Working in a school all day, you'd think I'd have TONS of funny stuff to write about - it's something I'll work on this week.  Maybe if I actually think about it - instead of waiting until the last minute to pull it all out of my behind - it could be better.

Do you have any useless information you'd like to share?  Feel free to do so in the comments.  
Have a fantastic Friday!!

Till next time. ;)

  1. What drives ME nuts is people who ignore the sign about moving over to the left, and then suddenly they are out of road on the right side, and they think I should be the one to accommodate their stupidity.

  2. I am so with you on AGT! WTH, right?

  3. Ha! Love this! That is good news about the 2% milk. I did not know that but do trust Dr. Oz who really seems to know his stuff. It looks like I can go back to just buying one kind of milk, yay!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. Congratulations. You have been awarded with the Leibster award. Go to my blog to collect! :)


Tell me what's on your mind - I love to hear from you!
