TT - Randomosity

1. I have no theme whatsoever this week.

2. I could have done more Shakespearean insults or crazy holidays, but I'm feeling like that's been done enough.

3. Summer colors would have been cool, but that's a lot of work. Maybe next week.

4. Same for summer recipes.

5. I'm starting to collect photos for a particularly unique TT, but it will take a while until I've got 13.

6. Jay's finally feeling better and we celebrated by getting out to hear some great music tonight.

7. We also got the sitter for next Monday so that I can enter the final year of my thirties in style.

8. Yes, that means I'm turning 39.

9. I'm surprisingly okay with that.

10. I'm planning to take the kids to the pool tomorrow.

11. The pool has a giant inflatable slide that they put straight into the water.

12. Itai loves it, and I think Maya's going to give it a try this week too. She was already done swimming by the time we found out that little ones with water wings are allowed down as long as there is a grownup in the pool to catch them.

13. I'm going to an outdoor concert Saturday night with a girlfriend - real early eighties easy listening kitsch. No, I don't think I'll admit who, but I'm embarrassingly excited about seeing them.

So that's it, my non-themed thirteen. Hope it gave you a smile and encourages you to share some news of your own in comments.

Visit the Thursday Thirteen hub to see what everyone else is counting this week.

I'm curious to what the themed one will be. Mine is a little different for me this week.

Robert said...

More details are definitely needed for numbers 6 and 13. What was the great music? And c'mon...admit who you're gonna see! Please?!?

You don't look a day over 38 ;)

I hear Metallica's coming ... but they're not kitschy. Or maybe I'm misremembering and they won't be in Israel after all and ... I think I either got too much sun today or I just got nailed with the strep that's going around.

I love your randomosity 13! So fun!

Janet said...

oh c' can tell me! I've seen Hall & Oates for crissakes ;-)

Bubba said...'ll admit you're turning 39 but you won't say what 80s band you're seeing? Lemme see...Spandau Ballet? Air Supply???

You still look great. Happy TT!

Lori said...

Sometimes you just have to blog about nothing in particular:) Happy TT.

Di said...

Wonderful...unrelated, disjointed, meandering...just what summer should be all about.

SandyCarlson said...

I enjoyed that. It's nice to get to know more about you.

So what music did you get to hear?

Great list, mine is up at 13 Not So Famous Last Words; Most Americans die peacefully in their beds, but for those who die violently one can only guess what their final words must have been. I think that after you read these you will have to agree that they do indeed sound like they might have been the last words of those who did not go peacefully into the night.

Randoms are sometimes just as fun as themes. Sounds like you are doing lots of fun summer things. Now that my twins are older I'm enjoying a lot more "summer" things too.

marcia@joyismygoal said...

You're cute we would not make fun of you for liking a band from your youth:) And you are still young @39--I did a random post too

Karen Coutu said...

Sounds like you have a lot of fun things planned! Happy 39th!!!

Lisa said...

Have fun at the concert. Randomness is good...I can't wait to finish the alphabet (8 more weeks) so I can just be random again.

Happy TT

I love randomosity myself … you’ve piqued my interest about your upcoming photo T-13. Enjoy your 39th year. My 40s were better than my 30s and my 50s better than the 40s … but retirement in my 60s is even better ;--)
Hope you all enjoy the day at the pool!
Hugs and blessings,

I hear from my older (he he) bloggy friends that the 40's are remarkable years, but you can enjoy being 30something for one more year. Woo-hoo! Have a great birthday.

If you need a laugh, I am all hormonal on my PMS = Promoting More Smiles edition.

Happy TT!

I love you on random. God, how funny. I do love being over 40! You will too. And I hope you have a wonderful birthday - I'm so delighted to share the planet with you at this time.

I would love to see photos of your life - in the past and now. Like what do houses in your neighborhood look like. Where do your kids go to school... stuff like that. I don't really know what day to day living is like for you! :)

news? Oh, there was a death in my family and my entire family has gone completely crazy. It's very very sad - but predictable.

Happy Early Birthday! In two weeks, I'll be on the other side of 35.
Enjoy your concert!This could turn into a fun guessing game!

Hmmmm....Cindy Lauper, "Girls,Just Wanna Have Fun", comes to mind, or If it's Air Supply, please post a video or pic!! :)

Have a great time!!

Great list, the random ones are a lot of fun. I just hit 38 a few weeks ago and it doesn't worry me a bit. It's all just a # anyway. :) Happy TT

Denise Patrick said...

random lists are some of the best. Yours was great.

Happy TT!

Having no theme sounds very freeing. I'll have to try it sometime.

Maisie said...

Hope you enjoy your Birthday celebration. We're the same age. But I'm not OK with it. I round down to 35 - but my kids like to remind me of my exact age.

Tink said...

I'm turning 40 in September, but I'm okay with it. :-)
Thanks for visiting my Belgium TT!

40 is just another number :lol:
Have fun on your 39th.
