Random Thoughts Thursday 170

  • The Winter Olympics are over! I’m pleased with how much of them we got to watch, despite not being able to select what we were watching, and having to listen to annoying commentary. Ha. I wonder how much we’ll use the antenna now. Maybe for the Oscars this weekend? (We used to be super in to the Oscars and even had a viewing party once!)

Luca sent me these cute Team USA mittens!

  • I booked my April trip to Dallas for Luca’s birthday! Yay! I love the tradition of seeing him for his birthday. I wonder if I will get to try a Texan vegan donut while I am there…?
  • We both enjoyed Black Panther! (Although I still tend to get bored during the “three fights going on at once” scenes at Marvel movies.)
  • (NOT AN AD) Have you seen these bracelet helpers before? When I wear a bracelet with a lobster clasp, I have to have Steven help me put it on, but sometimes it’s too early in the morning to ask for help before I catch the train, so I got this thing and… IT WORKS! Yay! (You use the helper to hold one end of the bracelet steady while you use your free hand to secure the clasp.)

You use your other hand to clasp it, but I was using that hand to take the photo!

  • I had some funky website issues yesterday (that were likely ISP related) that made me want to throw the towel in on this thing. I don’t want to spend time figuring out code anymore. I just want stuff to work. But that’s not how it goes when I’m using an old wordpress theme and outdated plugins! I should look in to that at SOME point.
  • Speaking of frivolous blog stuff, I had a lot of draft blog posts – over one hundred and fifty, and recently deleted ninety-seven of them. So many of them were about healthy eating and weight loss. Gawd. Some were almost 10 years old! Delete. Delete. Delete!

    I don’t wear bracelets enough to have a helper but that’s a pretty neat idea! Are we adding states to your vegan doughnut challenge? This could get pretty epic.

    • kilax says:

      Yeah! I have a list of states I might visit this year and thought I should try to get vegan donuts while I am there!

    Oh, that bracelet helper is a great idea! I’ve never heard of that before. I always have to ask Mike for help if I want to wear one of those.

  3. !!! Another potential stop on the vegan donut tour?! Yay! I’d be curious to know if there are any regional differences between Midwest vegan donuts and Texas vegan donuts!

    I really enjoyed watching the Olympics, but I’m also kind of glad they’re over now. It was a time commitment to keep up with them! I felt like I didn’t have any free time in the evenings for the past two weeks because I was so concerned with watching the Olympics, haha. Not to mention how late they kept me up some nights!

    • kilax says:

      I wonder! Steven has eaten regular donuts there many times and things were the same at the regular places. Hmmm. (It is where he first went ot Hurts though!)

      Truth! And I’d feel bad if I watched something else (non Olympics), because I were sick of seeing downhill skiing/whatever the sport was.

    I enjoyed watching and discussing the Olympics with you, and I’m glad you enjoyed watching them!

    I don’t wear bracelets very often, but that seems like a good thing to have! It reminds me of this sad review of a dress that I saw once: the woman said that she lived alone and wasn’t able to zip up the dress herself and had to return it. I wonder if they make that kind of tool for dresses.

    • kilax says:

      I enjoyed discussing it together too, and sharing articles and things we learned!

      You know what, I think they DO make something like that for dresses. I’ve had that issue before too! I think zipping up a dress is easier when you’re asleep (for Steven to do, ha!) then a clasp on a bracelet! But yeah, that’s SAD!!!

    I don’t want to deal with code or maintenance anymore, either. Hence why I won’t use WordPress. Too much I’d have to do. Boo! I like my Typepad. They do it all for me. Even domain registration.

    I need a bracelet thingie like that – what a great invention!

    I think I had about 11 or 12 drafts sitting around that I finally deleted – you win the prize for the most, LOL!

    • kilax says:

      Let me know if you want the link from Amazon!

      Ha ha ha ha ha. I could NOT believe the crap I was reading in my drafts!
