Randomonium- 7.31.09

Random and Pandemonium.
What life is really all about.

1)
I brought my cart out to the parking lot and was unloading it and on the phone at the same time. The cart return was REALLY far away and I was in a hurry (and feeling lazy). I did the horrible deed of leaving the cart in a parking space. Well, it really bit me in the arse because as I sat in my car finishing my phone call, I looked over and saw my cart hit a gust of wind. It was heading straight for a car three spots over. The driver was in the car, saw the cart beelining towards her car, grimaced at me, probably shouting curse words. We both dashed out of our cars running towards the cart but SMASH into the side of her car it went.

All I could do was ask if there was damage. Thankfully not. And, mutter an apology. And, yes this was witnessed by other people. I bet you they were saying to themselves, I better always put my cart away. Yikes.

2)
I was out bra shopping with Luv Bug, which was long overdo. I hate spending money on bras but it was necessary as I have been looking a little saggy lately. As we were looking around Luv Bug would point at certain bras and say,"Mommy's" He did this three times but goshdarnit he's smart because they did look like my bras.

3)
Buying greeting cards.
I had a free card coupon, but I got sucked in to buying extra cards because they were funny. I should scan one of them to show you. It is a picture of someones bare behind up against a window and it says, "Birthdays are an ass in the pane."
Get it. I LOL'd in the store. That's when I know it's a good card. Now I just have to decide who will be the lucky recipient.

4)
I entered a short film into the In the Know Short Film Contest. Here's the description. It falls under my idea of our Essay/Blog entry contest.

"Anyone who has struggled with infertility knows the emotional and physical burden of trying to conceive. Despite the fact that 1 in 8 couples experience infertility, many people feel isolated and alone in their journey. The In The Know Short Film Competition encourages those 7.3 million Americans affected by infertility to share their stories and provide hope and encouragement to others."
Sponsored by Fertility LifeLines and RESOLVE.

Here are the prizes:
1st place- $1000
2 runner ups- $500
Finalists will have their film shown at a film festival in NYC. That is exciting and would be great for PFM.

Wish me luck!

What is the plural of cul-de-sac?

Do you know? Don't cheat.

6)

Finally. I love thinking about possible names for my children. I have always loved picking names. I used to write short stories all the time as a kid and one of my biggest problems was finding the best name for the characters. If we adopt again, we would like a girl.

Here are some of my ideas. They are different so don't laugh. But which do you like best?

  • Hollis Rae (Rae is my MIL's middle name)
  • Francesca- for my love of all things Italian
  • Gretta Rae - for our German Heritage
  • Anabelle
  • Rae as a first name- still thinking of a good middle name. ( could be her given Korean name)
  • Gertie Rae (yes her name would be Gertrude after a great grandmother. But remember Gertie in ET?)

I have more but Luv Bug is paging me "Mooooooom". Happy Friday. Buon weekend. Hope your weather isn't crappy like it is here.

The plural of cul-de-sac is culs-de-sac...just like mother-in-law becomes mothers-in-law.

Our weather is crappy here.

And, I like the names you have come up with.

Great ramdom info, as always you are so interesting!

I always used to take my cart into its "stall" but I too once left it in a parking space, but close to the curb. The wind blew it into a car, no one was in it, i looked there was no damage, but I ALWAYS walked the cart back after that!

Here in Cairo no carts to take outside (you leave at register and someone carries your groceries, exception is at one large Wal-mart-ish like store called Carrefour, you can take the cart outside, and you know what I have not seen the cart stalls...hm?) and of course no space for big parking lots, so i am good to go!

Ha - "randomonium" - I love that word. Great list.

I like your "randomonium" posts. :)

I also like interesting/classic names and I love to see what names others like. Going through IF for many years has given me plenty of time to consider them!

My middle name is Rae -- named after my father, whose name is Raymond. I've always liked it. He always says that he wishes he'd made it my first name.
