All the world's a fragmented thought...


After weeks of lackluster and intermittent blogging, I have returned to Friday Fragments - only to learn from Blogger's new interface that I have not earned one penny from this blog.  That is only slightly more than I earn at my jobs.


  • Greatly related to the previous sentence: the school year has begun and all is temporarily well.  On the first day of Spanish class, a student was bragging to my daughter that she already knew one Spanish word.  The word was aloha.

  • Have you tried this mint water?  I think I like it.  There is also a chocolate mint version, but it is ALWAYS sold out at my Kroger store. 



  • I've been listening to all the news warnings that unoccupied cars will be towed in certain areas in an attempt to thwart a terrorist attack.  Being the driver who must tow those suspicious cars is a job I would not want.


  • In another international warning, don't play Kelli Norgaard in Words with Friends.  She just played an 85 point word against me.  I am intimidated by all you smart people!!  Don't I have any dumb-ish friends who want to play?


  • Aren't you delighted that it's Friday?  I am, but I do wish I had looked down before I left the house this morning.



  • See you all on Monday!!

Fun post! Aloha? That gave me a good chuckle. :-) Hope you have a great weekend. By the way, you probably have another pair of flipflops just like that (mirror image, of course). ;-)

You know...considering the whole scheme of life, what is wrong with wearing mismatched flip-flops? Nothing at all!

I think its a fashion statement - like those mismatched socks they sell now!

You can play with me (Mrs4444 or my facebook name). I frequently get "That is not a word."

I think I would only like mint water in the summer.

I hope you played it off like you wore those on purpose! :)

Adios!

Ha!!!! Aloha indeed.

I make at least one wardrobe malfunction per week. Welcome to the club. Being a member is embarrassing, but we have each other.

I don't play words with friends because I can't spell, so I actually might be just the person you were looking to find :)
