Friday Fragments, according to Jonel, at Just Sayin'...
"Every Friday, she hosts a plethora of randomness and encourages the rest of us to join in. Some may think she is being a bad influence, but I say that she is the exalted ruler of de-clutter. Jump on over and see what everyone else has cleared out of their minds."
I liked this intro last week, so I pirated it! (Thanks, Jonel :) Thanks for joining in today! [Here's the skinny on FF.]
***Gosh, I'm kind of embarrassed; yesterday, a post I had drafted got published without me noticing, and it was hanging out there for two hours before I noticed. Darn it! If you see the post entitled 444444 in your reader, just ignore it; it's not finished!!! (Hence, the nonsense title) And Matty, thanks for not mentioning the dumb title or the "ssssssss" that finished one line or the inconsistencies in names (I'm trying to decide if I should just start using Mr.4444's first name for that post.) I copied your sweet comment and will attach it to the final draft post :)
***Although I am a big fan of Snow Days, I can appreciate those who are not, which is why this is my Favorite Friday Fragment this week:
* I think snow days should be accompanied by the option to drop your children off at the home of the person who made the decision to close school that day. They might be a little more motivated to get the parking lots cleared and encourage the town to do a better job clearing the snow. B, of Life in the BAT Cave. Thanks, B! The award is yours; wear it proudly :)
***I'm just SICK about the fact that my list of passwords for everything on the computer somehow found its way into a basket of paper in our livingroom and then into the fireplace. Most of it was typed, but I had at least 20 hand-written usernames and passwords on there, too. Grrrrrr
***Still no sign of Stella (in case you were wondering)...
***Mr.4444 heard that if you lock your keys in your car, you can call someone who has your extra set, and they can simply unlock your car by clicking their spare key into their cell phone as you hold the phone out towards your car. He and Kendall tested this out, and guess what? It works!! [Just like when you stand in front of your car and press the clicker, your helper holds the clicker of their cellphone. You hold your cellphone about a foot away from your car door. When your car "hears" the click from the cellphone, the door opens. Pretty cool, huh?!]
***By the way, in case you've been wondering, my friend Molly is doing well. Christmas was tough (every day is), but she's doing as well as could be expected.
***Dads Dish Retro Blog Fact or Fiction: Men Never Throw Away Their Old Clothes is a funny post. It made me remember to finally throw out those old jeans of Mr.4444's that I've been hiding in my closet for months. (I hope he's not reading this! LOL)
***I often find myself driving miles in my car before noticing that the radio is playing.
***In the car a few days ago, I heard in the radio news that due to fears regarding terrorism, the United Stated Embassy in Yemen was going on high alert (or something like that.) I said (to no one in particular) "What do we have an embassy in Yemen for, anyway?!" Mr.4444 replied, "We're giving them YemenAid." (This is what I live with on a daily basis around here...)
***Christmas vacation spoiled me; I am exhausted from going back to work this week! Before I fall asleep here, I'd better sign off. Leave your link to your FRIDAY FRAGMENT post here, and I'll stop by this weekend for a visit :)
