Random Friday thoughts

Hi all! Happy last day of November. I don't know about you, but I am so ready to say goodbye to 2018. 2017 sucked donkey balls but 2018 has made 2017 seem like small potatoes. Basically, 2018 has been shit and I am ready to say bye felicia. I realise that bad things happen regardless of the year, but I've said several times, I love clean slates. January 1st won't make the pain of losing my nan go away, not to mention all the other shit 2018 rained down on me and other people, but it feels nice and fresh and I am ready.


Moving on. I don't blog a whole lot anymore because I feel like I don't have much to say, nothing important anyway. I have random thoughts and ideas to share, but then I forget and don't post unless it's a link up. So today I thought I would word vomit everywhere just to show my face in an attempt to be more active on here again.

Have I ever shared the story of how I fell on a bathtub on my wedding night? Fell right on the edge, right on my butt, and cracked it. Like, my tailbone. I couldn't sit down properly or without pain for days. Even now, if I sit down too long, it hurts.  Nothing doctors could do. Fun times.

If I have free time, which let's face it, is all the time I am not at work, I will choose a book first, internet second, movie third and TV show last. I almost never watch normal TV, though sometimes instead of Netflix I might put on HGTV. Not so much anymore, I feel like I've seen all the episodes  of everything already.

Speaking of TV, we had Sling for a year (before it got as popular as it seems to be now), switched to Playstation Vue for a couple years and now we are on Spectrum - not full on cable, but a little package thing that is like $20 a month for 10 channels. We don't really watch TV, though KC watches a lot of sports (which is TV, but you know what I mean). It's not available everywhere, but it's handy. Playstation Vue was getting up there in price, seems we get on things when they are cheap and then they go up and up and we look elsewhere. I won't pay more than $50 for TV we don't watch.

I also don't have the patience or attention span to watch a TV show once a week. I lose interest when I have a whole season at my disposal, I would never watch more than 1 episode of a show if I had to wait a week for a new episode. I watched both seasons of Great News the other week and thoroughly enjoyed it and am very sad it was cancelled. This episode made me laugh.


As I've mentioned before, I am a grinch and proud of it. We don't have our tree up yet, I don't decorate besides the tree, I don't like christmas music except for like 10 songs and I can only listen to them for about a week before I get stabby, I'm not doing christmas cards (I never do, but I always pretend I'm going to try). I'm going through some medical shit right now - not trying to be vague, just not talking about it because I'm dealing by being detached and not thinking about it - and you can't really remove most of the stress that comes with the holidays (being away from home, holiday parties, family get togethers) so I removed what I could - buying presents. Except for KC, everyone in my life is getting gift cards, if they get anything at all.

I have some very lofty financial goals next year which means my shopping has to go way, way down. Which is another reason I'm not doing proper christmas presents - I can plan and plan, but I always go overboard (not to mention end up buying things for myself).

Speaking of Overboard, I refuse to watch the remake. The Goldie Hawn & Kurt Russell movie is a classic and should not be touched. Plus, I don't like Anna Faris. Just look at how adorable they are. I heart them.


I feel like I saw a lot of people dress up as the Sanderson sisters this halloween (can you tell I started this post last month?), which is all good and fun but then I also saw a lot of Billy costumes and that is not good and fun (kidding, people can dress up as what they want, I just don't like looking at him, real or costume). I like Hocus Pocus as much as the next girl but I fast forward through his parts. When I was younger, I used to get scared at super weird things - Gremlins, Poseidon and Billy from Hocus Pocus were the big ones. I still can't handle any of those things as an adult - I can watch them and feel fine and like an adult, but then I will have nightmares for months. I am not even kidding or exaggerating. Billy was the worst, I had recurring nightmares of him chasing me through an airport for a good 15 years. Not every night obviously, but at least once a week. They went away when I was like 23 or so, but I don't care to bring him back thank you very much.

I used to be really scared of pirates as well, but pirates of the caribbean helped rid me of that fear. 

How's that for random. Anyone have any irrational fears like that? Or just me.
