Michelle’s Random Crap

It’s been a crazy week at the M. compound – what with the back of the house being torn up and rebuilt. I didn’t have time to prepare a well-thought out, humorous post for the three of you to read (that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it). So here is some random crap.

I’m getting a new window in my office. Hurray!

Cooper is settling in nicely. He loves his toys. He’s sitting on my finger and has ventured out of his cage. I love my little fluffer-nutter!

I just finished this book. It amused me.

I thought I’d try a gluten-free diet*. Maybe I’m allergic to wheat**? Maybe that’s why I’m so tired all the time. Anyway, here are some of the products I’ve tried. Most of them are sad and have strange ingredients and I need to read the labels before I buy them. The crackers have fennel (I hate fennel) and poppy seeds (no thank you). And the chocolate chip cookies*** had chia seeds in them. It was disconcerting. I haven’t noticed any difference in my energy levels, but I’ll give it a little longer.

*I’ve cheated already with a hamburger bun and a tortilla. Oh well.

**I know I should ask to be tested by a doctor, but that would make sense.

***not pictured. Harry finished them off for me. I just noticed that the other package of cookies are dairy-free. That means the chocolate is not officially chocolate, so why bother. Maybe I’ll send them to Adam.

Look at these cool Wonder Woman shoes!

What the hell is Britney doing with her tongue? It’s bizarre. And fascinating.

A while ago I watched Working Girl and was reminded of Melanie Griffith’s disturbing throat clearing tic. I found a video that compiled them. This would make a great drinking game.

Asian babies are awesome. And they do floors!

I was all excited about trying Schweddy Balls. But they didn’t have it at the store, so we had Americone Dream* instead. Boo.

*contains wheat 😦

  1. 1. Please let me know when Harry finishes building my room(s) so I can move to California. And yes, in my future bedroom, there will be a monitor that permanently displays Polt’s ass.
    2. Cooper is adorable!
    3. One of my BFFs has Celiac Disease … Gluten-Free is not fun. But please send me free food. Thanks!
    4. Who taught Britney how to speak? That girl needs some speech therapy because she’s not lip syncing her L’s correctly.
    5. I’ve sounded like Melanie for a week … my stupid cold won’t go away!
    6. Back when I was vegetarian, I loved Americone Dream! MMMMM

  2. 1. Wow, lots of work. I’m impressed. I’d just live in a hovel and complain about how much I hated it.
    2. Cooper is cute.
    3. Models are not real people.
    4. A friend of mine also has celiac’s. It’s a bitch when she goes out to eat trying to get around it and expensive. I think she pays $7 for a loaf of bread.
    5. Wonder Woman~~~~~
    6. Definitely has issues pronouncing L. Maybe it’s a Southern thing.
    7. That would make me berserk at the office. Unless of course you are Adam then I’m sure it’s delightfully adorable.
    8. Those wacky Asians.
    9. I’ve never tried either, I don’t like malted balls.

    1. 1. Oh, I am definitely complaining about it. I feel like I’ve been living in a construction zone for the last 7 years.
      6. I would think it would be difficult to pronounce your Ls with your tongue out of your mouth.

  3. I’m trying to think if any of the ice creams in my freezer right now don’t have wheat. I think all of the Ben & Jerry’s are based on desert foods like cookies, brownies, and cheesecake. Häagen-Dazs would probably be better wheat-wise.

      1. We did the Ben and Jerry’s factory tour. “And here’s the machine that adds chunky bits of stuff to the ice cream…” (I lean over to Heather and whisper “and here’s the machine that ruins it all”)

        1. There was a comedian who did a bit about all the junk B&J’s puts in their ice cream – he said something about them adding in pennies. Now Harry and I joke about pennies in the ice cream all the time.

  4. That first picture of Cooper is adorable! Good luck with the new window and finishing the room.

    I’ve seen the Brittney vid before. Strange speech impediment. I hadn’t noticed Mel’s throat clearing before and I love that movie!
