as i am smugly thinking:

.  i do keep in shape by regularly running up the stairs to forget what i went up there for.  i remember when i get back down, so there's always 2 trips involved :)  who needs 'insanity'?  when you have *senility* hahahaaa

 

...methinks we really should be quite fit from all this "second tripping we do"...

I coach my boys soccer team and I am constantly mixing up the kids names. It's gotten to the point where they don't respond immediately when I call out instructions because they are waiting to see how I'll correct myself first.

haha

 

 

My Dad (who surely had this, too) used to run the list of all our names before he got to the one he meant. He'd start with my mom's name, then my sister's, then mine then my niece's....it was funny back then, but at least now we know why he was doing it. 

We still do it with each other just for funzies in his memory.  :D

My latest repeated FUBAR was leaving the tea kettle on and going to bed.  Fortunately it almost always had enough water in it that it didn't go dry by morning.  Maybe once or twice tho.  I used to have dyslexia and mix up  numbers fairly often.  But not much problem with that now.

 

The door frame attacks are not something they warn us about in safety classes.  Those things are viscous! :)

My current bad list is: gluten, dairy, sulfites, coffee (the devil's brew), tea, Bug's Bunnies carrots, garbanzo beans of pain, soy- no joy, terrible turnips, tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, eggplant, celery, strawberries, pistachios, and hard work.

I have a heavy duty kettle that has survived a boil off a few times... it's a bit discoloured now... has character.

I once fell asleep making beef stew. Fortunately it was in a very resilient non-stick pan that survived the ordeal. The stew on the other hand... not so much.

Nah, I managed to boil my kettles off while I was up and about in the house, walking by it repeatedly. It has no whistle, just lots of steam.  LOL

well, that makes more sense if there is no whistle, but your wallpaper may have peeled a bit and you probably got a nice facial and hair curl out of that

misty air? :lol:

Oh no, it would whistle like a wolf if I had the flame up high.  But I always keep it very low, so no whistling.  I don't mind the tea water taking a little longer to get hot.  If it takes awhile that's fine.  I usually keep it half on and half off the burner so it warms up even slower.

 

The bear was fun.  But who can resist a Lady with a feather?

My bunny is up all night, every night, playing. On top of that my husband sounds like an entire army of chainsaw murderers when he sleeps. It is a miracle that with my earplugs I can even hear an alarm go off in the mornings. Sleeping with them takes some getting used to, but it sure beats going to jail for murdering your husband because you can't sleep. :lol:

So last night I was so tired and distracted that, while making scrambled eggs for the boyfriend,

I cracked the first egg into the pan and threw the shell into the garbage, and the second egg

got cracked into the garbage and the shell thrown into the pan. Yeah, he looked at me funny

for that one......

Not knowing what a grunion is until I read further along in your post, I had

at first assumed it to be something local to you like Bigfoot or the chupa

cabra, and was very interested to see what photos you came up with!

they are little silver fish that come up on the beach to lay their eggs...sad to say we didn't see one and we checked from the tip of La Jolla to the Jetty in South Mission Beach -- (pacific beach in san diego) -- no little silver fish..hoping they choose tonight...but sadly I'll be camping in the local mountains so that I can spend tomorrow watching pro bike riders pedal up the mountainside.

 

going to turn in a couple pictures of me and beautiful empty beaches taken at 1230 and 230am pt -- along with an essay on reasons why the grunion no longer run...i'll get a couple points and that is all i need as long as i ace the final :)

 

will try to post one of the photos of me flipping off my professor with a big smile when i get back from camping!

 got this today in an email. Maybe it isn't a celiac thing after all. :lol: maybe it's just us.

 

 

 

A.A.A.D.D.- KNOW THE SYMPTOMS!
Thank goodness there's a name for this disorder.

Age-Activated Attention Deficit Disorder. 

This is how it manifests: 

I decide to water my garden. 
As I turn on the hose in the driveway,
 
I look over at my car and decide it needs washing. 

As I start toward the garage, 
I notice mail on the porch table that 
I brought up from the mail box earlier. 

I decide to go through the mail before I wash the car. 

I lay my car keys on the table,
 
Put the junk mail in the garbage can under the table,
And notice that the can is full. 

So, I decide to put the bills back 
On the table and take out the garbage first... 

But then I think, 
Since I'm going to be near the mailbox 
When I take out the garbage anyway, 
I may as well pay the bills first. 

I take my check book off the table, 
And see that there is only one check left. 
My extra checks are in my desk in the study,
 
So I go inside the house to my desk where 
I find the can of Pepsi I'd been drinking
. 

I'm going to look for my checks, 
But first I need to push the Pepsi aside 
So that I don't accidentally knock it over. 

The Pepsi is getting warm, 
And I decide to put it in the refrigerator to keep it cold. 

As I head toward the kitchen with the Pepsi, 
A vase of flowers on the counter 
Catches my eye--they need water. 

I put the Pepsi on the counter and 
Discover my reading glasses that 
I've been searching for all morning. 
I decide I better put them back on my desk, 
But first I'm going to water the flowers. 

I set the glasses back down on the counter ,
 
Fill a container with water and suddenly spot the TV remote. 
Someone left it on the kitchen table. 

I realize that tonight when we go to watch TV,
I'll be looking for the remote, 
But I won't remember that it's on the kitchen table, 
So I decide to put it back in the den where it belongs, 
But first I'll water the flowers. 

I pour some water in the flowers, 
But quite a bit of it spills on the floor. 

So, I set the remote back on the table, 
Get some towels and wipe up the spill. 

Then, I head down the hall trying to 
Remember what I was planning to do.
 

At the end of the day:
 
The car isn't washed, 
The bills aren't paid, 
There is a warm can of 
Pepsi sitting on the counter, 
The flowers don't have enough water, 
There is still only 1 check in my check book, 
I can't find the remote, 
I can't find my glasses, 
And I don't remember what I did with the car keys.
 
Then, when I try to figure out why nothing got done today,
 
I'm really baffled because I know I was busy all day, 
And I'm really tired. 

I realize this is a serious problem, 
And I'll try to get some help for it, but first I'll check my e-mail.... 

Do me a favor. 
Forward this message to everyone you know, 
Because I don't remember who I've sent it to. 

Don't laugh -- if this isn't you yet, your day is coming!
P.S. I don't remember who sent it to me, so if it was you, I'm sorry
