Would you like to know how I know that I’m a moron and on the verge of being elected the Village Idiot? Like how I know for sure, for sure? Because these three things happened within the last forty-eight hours.
1. For my birthday, Papa’s Wife gave me a pretty pyjama set and some cushiony Isotoner slippers. While I have yet to wear the pyjama set yet because it is more summer like and we’re barely into spring, the slippers are getting worn to death (I can’t help it, they’re like pillows wrapped around my tootsies). Because of my non-stop slipper wearing, I thought it would be a good idea to go ahead and toss them in the washing machine, so I planned on throwing them in for a wash Friday morning with the bath mat (I like to plan these things), only I didn’t. Instead, I ended up washing them in a load before. Fine, right? Wrong. Because somehow I had completely forgotten that I had already washed them and laid them out to dry.
So when I finally washed the bath mat and opened up the washing machine to pull it out, I expected to pull out my slippers too, but they weren’t in there (of course they weren’t in there), and that’s when the biggest freak out in months occurred. You know how dryers like to steal a sock or two on occasion, well I became convinced that my washing machine ate my slippers. Like totally convinced. I kept sticking my head in it and looking around and marvelling at how such a thing could happen. I was on the verge of calling Papa to have him come over to take apart the washing machine and find not only my slippers, but everything else that has ever gone missing in my life. And that’s when I glanced over to the clothes rack, and saw my slippers drying on top of it. Moron.
2. There’s this whole brouhaha at the moment about Google dumping Google Reader. It’s throwing us bloggers into quite the tizzy since Google Reader is how some people keep track of our blogs. One solution is to get the Google Readers on over to Bloglovin, so we’re falling all over ourselves making sure that we’re signed up and getting our Bloglovin buttons onto our sidebars. Well I’ve been signed up with Bloglovin for ages, like practically since I started this blog, but I never use it. So the other day, I clicked onto my Bloglovin account, copied the HTML code for the Bloglovin button, and added it to my sidebar. Only I didn’t like how it looked. I decided to email my go-to blog design girl, Alyx, and ask her if she would mind whipping me up a button that looked like my other social media buttons. She replied that of course she could, and she would, but why would I want her to since I already have one. Yep, my Bloglovin button is over there on the right in between the feedburner and twitter buttons (feel free to click on it now, or any of the other buttons for that matter). That was embarrassing.
3. You know how Daylight Savings Time was two weeks ago in the U.S.? Well it wasn’t here. Here it’s next weekend (emphasis on the ‘next’). Except somehow I got it into my head that it was this weekend (Mom – you can go ahead and take responsibility for your part in this). So last night before going to bed, I reminded The Husband that the clocks were going forward and went ahead and changed the time on my cell phone. And that’s how I found myself typing away on my laptop at 6:30 on a Sunday morning, thinking that it was 7:30, and wondering why it was still so dark out.
