RTT: Short And Sweet. Well, Short.

In 1905, Einstein came up with the concept of special relativity, published his paper on the photoelectric effect, finished his doctoral dissertation, devised the E=mc^2 concept, published a paper on Brownian motion, was approved for his doctorate, and turned 26.

So......what have you guys been up to?

Meh, I could do that too, but first I'd have to pry my ass off the couch. I'm an Olympics whore in Olympic whore heaven. Being unemployed right now? Not so bad.

You ever read a book and immediately put a face to a character? Are you reading or have you read Stephen King's Under The Dome?


Big Jim Rennie. Come on, he's perfect.

Me: You know, I really need to watch myself around the house. Like when I give the kids hell for coughing and not covering their mouths? I do that all the time.
Supreme Leader: Uh huh. Remember the other day when the kids were playing their driving game and shouting at the other drivers?
Me: Shut up! Maybe they'll take after you and start sleeping all day.
SL: You bastard, you try carrying a baby!
Me: (backing away, avoiding eye contact)

Giveaway! Ya, I think I said something about Sunday. Whatever, this is my blog. The lucky winner was Jennifer from Sprite's Keeper. Not sure what she's going to do with mittens in Florida, but she'll impress all the retired Canadian who spend their winters down there. I had plans to go film my little monkeys giving away the mittens in front of the speed skating oval, but the oldest has a slight fever and wimped out. Sissy. Joking.

*grumble*

Now, off to Keely's with you, I have TV to watch.

  1. You are getting brave fighting like that with the supreme leader!

    I thought that you were working again?

  2. You actually said that to SL?

    ...

    You have big brass ones, my friend, I hope they don't slow you down while trying to run! :)

  3. I'd stay away from fighting with SL, you never know when she'll turn on you during these next few months...

  4. I pictured the EXACT same person for Big Jim. Holy cow. I hope Vodka Mom stops by and comments. If it's a three-fer, he'll HAVE to do the movie. And what an awesome movie that book would make.

  5. Mittens in Florida? She and John do some weird things, I tells you.

    Good for you for picking a fight with a pregnant lady. When she kicks your a$$, will you post the video?

  6. We could start a Facebook group "Fred Thompson to play Big Jim Rennie". Hey, it's working for Betty White.

  7. Since you're posting about the Olympics, you missed a perfect opportunity to post a pic of Kim Yu-na.

  8. Those words ain't so brave you know....when the Supreme Leader can actually run again (or even briskly walk) you're likely to be paying for all that yapping...

    Congrats to your winner. Makes me chuckle that a Floridian won them.

  9. Wow, I'd sleep with one eye open if I were you.

    I'm loving the Olympics and cried like a baby when Alexandre Bilodeau won the first gold for Canada.

  10. I'm such a slacker.
    Wow! I'm not sure if I'm in awe of your bravery or dumbstruck by your stupidity. SL WILL win every time.

    ReplyDelete
  11. You fought with SL? I am amazed by your courage. Are you feeling invincible?

    Olympics? I'm sorry. I must have missed it. J/K!

    ReplyDelete
  12. nope, gotta keep eye contact so you can see what is being thrown...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thank goodness you finally picked a winner. Now I can can say we jumped off the couch and cheered when Canada won the gold the other night without it sounding like I'm sucking up. I may suck, but I don't suck up.

    And if you don't watch it, SL will let her water break on your favorite shoes...

  14. I'm an Olympics whore too, but after the snowboarding it was all figure skating last night and I hate skating. I mean of course I watched it, and all but yuck. Looking forward to hockey, though.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I wouldn't consider myself an Olympic Whore, but I am biathlon-curious. And just so you know, I'm pretty sure Jen won your Eden Fantasies gig last year. I remember this because I couldn't think of a more appropriate winner. Oh I definitely know what she can use those mittens for.

    Love, your warm hearted, but cold handed friend in Utah. (PS: size large...I'm tall. I have money. And cashier's checks.)

  16. Steenky, I'm blushing! And will treasure the mittens forever, or until Sprite comes up with an alternative plan for them, most likely involving the beagle. Poor Blue. Or maybe I just need to get my ass up to see some snow and see how warm those babies can get! Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Mittens in Florida? Lucky girl...wait, she might need them, I heard Florida has snow.

    This is what I've been up to...http://meangirlgarage.blogspot.com/2010/02/out-of-tune-idol-season-1-finale.html

    vote for beaker and the monkey if totally bored.

    btw....didn't think you ever went against SL...wow...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Jebus dude! Even I know not to poke a (pregnant) bear! What is WRONG with you?? Oh yeah...you're Canadian.

    I totally forgot. (no I didn't)

    I didn't want your stupid mittens anyway! (Yes I did...) You're a whore.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I have this funny feeling that curling will be overlooked. At least we don't have to worry about watching it in the wee hours of the morning like the summer Olympics (it's pretty much live).

    Thanks for your randomness,

    ReplyDelete
  20. Wow! An unemployed whore who dares to take on the Supreme Leader. Don't be surprised when she pimps you out!

    Love the Olympics!

    Happy Random!

  22. What were you thinking? You have two children already, you should know better than to aggravate a pregnant woman.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Crazy stuff.

    Have a great RT.

    ENJOY!!! Mailed off my mittens the other day to online friends - girl at the post office said mine was package #27484 to far off lands - cool or warm eh???

    ReplyDelete
  25. I'm jealous... I wanted the damn mittens. I guess I'll just have to get online and order some. I'm happy to hear you're an Olympics Whore in Whore Heaven. Nothing could warm my heart more than hearing that today.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Is there a lot of fist pumping in the driving and shouting game?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Watched the snow boarding yesterday. Looked a superb course. You do any of that?

    ReplyDelete
  28. I am the worst example in our home and our son repeats everything. I am in for lots of trouble.

    ReplyDelete
  29. F = ma, I see the application of force in your trajectory.

    ReplyDelete
  30. No way, SK wins everything! Ahh well, I'll buy my own mittens.

    I want to sleep all day, SL is AWESOME. I doubt it's all day and lay off, at least she has a job. Olympics watcher. You should get paid for that, you could do bloggy commentary. I'll pay you a dollar.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Can't comment...watching Olympics...

  32. Yeah well... Einstein may have invented relativity but I can change a diaper, make dinner, feed the dog, bake cookies and read blog posts all at the same time. So... there.

    ReplyDelete
  33. You traitorous bitch. Those mittens were MINE.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yeah, just so you know....Einstein did not have MTV and reality TV to contend with. If he did, the world of science would be WAYYYYYYYYYYYY different.

  35. You said WHAT to a pregnant woman??? AND she's your wife??? Dude! Seriously.

    ReplyDelete
  36. That's a lot of whoring. You must be exhausted. I'm going to use that as an excuse for what you said to SL.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Just in case we never hear from you again, since SPL has smothered you with a couch cushion...it's been really great knowing you!

    ReplyDelete
  38. WTF. I totally thought I had that contest rigged. I have to work on my rigging skills.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Now everytime I get back into Under the Dome, I see Fred Thompson's face when I read about Big Jim Rennie...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Yup, that's Big Jim, alright. Well, Rennie might be fatter. And they are making a movie! Now who should Barbie be?

    ReplyDelete

Come on, sailor. I love you long time.
