Random Tuesday Thoughts

Gen X Moms has moved to www.GenXMomsBlog.com. Don’t forget to update your bookmark!

Presented randomly in a purely random fashion.


So we have two beagles, and beagles are, of course, awesome dogs, and the #1 beagle of all time is Snoopy. Mouse has a Snoopy-themed bedroom, because Snoopy is awesome. And you know what’s even more awesome? A Snoopy license plate! Proceeds from the Snoopy plate go to California museums (and you know what’s awesome? Museums!). So if you’re interested in a Snoopy plate, go register your interest here: http://www.snoopyplate.com/

I really really really want this on my car


I wish there were some sort of way to make turn signals automatic. Like when you think about changing lanes or turning, the turn signal on your car goes on. And when you’re done changing lanes or if you change your mind, it automatically goes off. I think I want that feature even more than I want a flying car. And I really want a flying car.


Tonight (Monday) for a slightly belated Mother’s Day, we took Train Guy’s mom, dad, and brother out to dinner at Mrs. Knott’s Chicken Dinner Restaurant located at Knott’s Berry Farm. If you like fried chicken and you happen to find yourself in Orange County with nowhere to eat, check out the Chicken Dinner Restaurant. It’s pretty much Mouse’s idea of food nirvana. There’s not a single thing in the chicken dinner (which is sort-of prix fixe) that he doesn’t love to eat. Speaking of which, I think I’m going to go have my slice of boysenberry pie.



Why is it that good tv shows get cancelled while bad tv shows live on and on in perpetuity?


I have finally graduated from physical therapy. I have a congenital defect in my knees (thanks Dad! And Grandpa!) that makes them prone to dislocation, and while I’ve had a lifetime of knee problems, I did a super-tastic job of jacking up my right knee last June. I had this awful surgery in August, and honestly, the pain during recovery was far worse than being in labor. Because at least labor ended and there was a nice prize when it was over. Anyway, my knees are still quite weak (I can’t stand on one foot with my knee slightly bent for more than a minute–literally, a minute–I have to time myself) but they are doing much better and my surgery one doesn’t hurt anymore.


This concludes today’s episode of Random Tuesday Thoughts. Head over to the Un Mom for more Randomosity.

  1. Congrats on the PT Graduation! Celebratory night out I think is in order…

  2. I love Snoopy.

    And pie.

    Mmmm. Pie.

    You didn’t say which show got canceled…

    Happy Tuesday.

    • Happy Tuesday to you too! I was speaking in general of tv shows that get cancelled, like Arrested Development or Futurama, although I’ve heard that Futurama is coming back. But seriously, how can Arrested Development be off the air and, well, any sitcom on ABC is still on?

  3. Yeah. I don’t have a TV, but I’ve watched every episode of Arrested Development and I want more.

    Sorry about your wobbly knees. I blew out my ACL a couple years ago. Sucked. Knees are such a design flaw in the human body. Ironclad evidence against Creationism as far as I’m concerned.
