5 Minutes Of Random Thoughts:
Start. Does a crazy person know they're crazy? I keep telling people, "I'm going out of my mind." But I think the fact that I know this, rules out the option that I'm actually turning into a crazy person. Loony bins don't sound very fun. You can't have shoe laces... or pens... or conjugal visits. I wonder if they let crazy people watch
"Girl Interrupted?" I bet they have a whole list of movies their patients can't watch, like: "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest"... "Mulholland Drive"...and "Gigli". Because lets face it, if there's any movie that would make me want to stab a nurse in the face with a grape it's a movie that JLo stars in. Although Mariah Carey comes in as a close second. I'd rather watch an endless loop of Barney videos than sit through two hours of Mariah playing out the fantasy of what she wishes her life had REALLY been. You know who I would like to inflict that torture on though? My realtor. She rescheduled on me last minute yesterday. "Well at least the house is done," I thought while picking particles of dirt off the floor...with my fingers. So maybe a crazy person really does know they're crazy.End.

Daily Hoop Conversation:
Hoop: The doctor says I should only do "light duty" for the next month.
Tink: That's probably a good idea.
Hoop: So that means I can't move any more boxes.
Tink: Oh. Ok...
Hoop: Or yard work.
Tink: Uh, huh.
Hoop: I probably shouldn't even be pushing this grocery cart. You know, in case someone from work sees me?
Tink: Riiight.
Tink: It's really going to suck for you for the next month.
Hoop: Why do you say that?
Tink: Well obviously if you can't handle a few boxes or yard work, we shouldn't be having sex either.
Hoop: *Drops jaw*
Tink: Didn't think about that, did you?

Around The Water Cooler:
Tink: Look at that rain! It's like a waterfall.
Co-worker: All we need now is some soap.
Tink: *Blink*
Tink: You are SO redneck. How the hell did I end up in this state?
Co-worker: What did I say?!

Re: being crazy... I've always maintained that if I had to choose between going crazy with a healthy body or having my health deteriorate while my mind is still sharp as a tack, I'd pick crazy any day. [now I've jinxed myself to develop Alzheimer's in my early 40's]

I would think sometimes it's frustrating and other times it would be a welcome escape from all the crap life sometimes dishes out...and the first person who says, "There's no crap. Only challenges!" is going to be beat with a wet noodle!

If you locked all the insane people in a room to watch JLo and Mariah movies, would they ultimately overdose on the incredibly high levels of the crazy and return to normalcy? Perhaps this is an alternative treatment. There are some talking-to-themselves people in the subway who are convinced that the world is ending. Do JLo and Mariah support that theory?

J.Lo, Mariah and Barbara Streisand. Hell no.

I'm suprised he didn't counter with the Cowgirl. Guys do nothing, girls get knee cramps... that one sucks.

I would think that knowing I'm GOING crazy and not being able to stop is worse. Ok, I know it's worse. 8-)~

I remember when that whale blew up. I would have loved to have been there and seen that! Seriously! The pics were .. well ... gross. But still.

Hoop sure didn't think that all the way through at all. You should have gotten out the vibrator and put fresh batteries in it right in front of him. LOL

RE: Daily Hoop Convo. rofl! You know, Hoop really needs to get up earlier to keep ahead of you!

And he should know that if he can't actually LIFT the heavy boxes, he's gonna get put to work PACKING them. At least that's what I would do!

Word Verification: yrekk - when you can hang up and drive! (for all the idiots on the Seattle streets who try to run me down as I make my way to the bus stop)

I'm thinking that Hoop is going to get better real fast.

Obviously, that redneck was a multi-tasker.

Ah...the joys of selling a house. Get used to it Tink. I'm sure Foo would be happy to share his many stories of being chased out of the house.

One involves the realtor service calling while I was "doing my business" and the prospective buyers were standing just outside the door wanting to look at the house! They wouldn't even give us 5 minutes to clear out!!! Guess they weren't THAT interested. Of course, I could have said sure then greeted them while sitting on the throne.

I'll have to remember that for the next time we do it. *LOL*

Am I the only one about to Google "exploding whale"?

At 14 June, 2006, Blogger Mignon said...

Arabella, don't do it. I remember when it happened - my brother and his family were living in Taipei at the time and he thoughtfully sent us loads of pictures of the aftermath. It's not something to see before, during or after you've eaten, drank or breathed.

Okay I did the meme here.

About going crazy: If you still have some awareness of your mental state declining, it keeps you out of the psychotic range of mental illness.

Watching horribly awful movies would not make me go insane because at least I could make fun of them, but listening to horrible music would drive me BONKERS. Such as Zombie performed by The Cranberries.

Can men exist without having sex?!

I love your Hoop conversation. LMAO.

as someone who knows understands a bit about being legitimately insane, i can tell you that i think it's less a matter of whether you're crazy and more how crazy everbody else must be.

I always believed that rednecks were a creature indigenous only to the apalachian mountains. Through blogging I have discovered that there are subspecies which can be found in parts of nearly every geographical region.

At 15 June, 2006, Blogger Peevish said...

Heehee! Men do seem to forget to include sex in 'take it easy' instructions!

At 15 June, 2006, Blogger Jay said...

Wow, from waterfall to soap in 2 seconds flat. That's gotta be some sort of record (that I'm glad I don't hold).

At 15 June, 2006, Blogger Chris said...

Hee hee - woe is Hoop!!

I missed reading your blog while I was on vacation. I had to "share" my husband's laptop and sometimes the hotel did not have internet that always worked.

I also tried to make comments on your blog a few times but blogger was not letting me. I wanted to tell you that after reading your story about "boys and poop", that I dared my sister to poop in our Mickey Mouse garbage can when we were little girls. When she did, I told on her. She got spanked. Hehehe, I was so mean.

Crazy is as crazy does??

LMAO, love the Hoop conversation. Ooops, didn't think of THAT now did he?!?! LOL!

The conclusion I've reached is that the Craziest of the nutjobs are the ones who loudly protest that everyone else is nuts and they are perfectly fine.

Going over to read the newest Twisted Tink. Hope things are going well with house hunting and selling. I feel your pain. but it gets even better because then you get to MOVE - a whole new level of psychosis :o) .
