Ten on Tuesday

Ten on Tuesday: 5/7/13

1. I keep telling myself I’m going to stick to a stricter diet once and for all and stop eating so much sugar. And yet…and yet…

2. Am I the only one who thinks sloths secretly look really creepy? Like they’re harboring an evil secret or something?

3. You know those cans of biscuits you buy in the cooler section of the grocery store, and how you’re supposed to pop them open with a spoon? The other day I was peeling the wrapper off one of those cans while also telling my husband a story about a time I set one of these cans down on the counter so hard it popped open and into the air and scared the bejeezus out of me. In the middle of my story about the spontaneous popping cans, you can guess what happened–the can in my hands popped and I screeched. Oh, the irony.

4. Here’s the song of the week. I actually found this by reading some of the comments from another YouTube user whom I’m following. The girl is Juliana and the song is an acoustic cover of Miike Snow’s ‘Animal’.


5. And just since I liked that last cover so much, here she is covering Phoenix’s ‘1901’.

6. I’ve realized that I could waste hours between Buzzfeed and Tumblr just reading the bizarro conversations that people have. Some of these are so hilarious that I can’t even relay them to another person in the room because I’m laughing so hard. Others are just weird. The other day I started reading a thread about “the creepiest thing your child has ever done” and after half an hour or so of scrolling through I had to stop.  Honestly if I had a kid that did one of these things I wouldn’t know who to call first, the priest or the realtor.

7. I usually pride myself on being super-prepared for things, so I was fairly alarmed to realize that my anniversary is in less than two weeks and I haven’t a clue what to buy for the husband. Uh-oh.

8. I’ve given up and decided to count caffeine as a food group.

9. My hubby is in charge of the laundry in our house and for years he tried really hard to fold the sheets just so. I think he felt is was necessary to keep his nest mate happy. Then one day I admitted that when it’s up to me I just roll it on up and stuff it in the underbed bag that holds all the linens. I’ve never seen someone fold laundry so cheerfully.

10. I can’t think of a tenth thing so here is a picture of an overly excited cat.

    Both the cats pics are soo funny! I think sloths look happy (maybe because I swear their my spirit animal). I always handle can biscuits like its an explosive – because it IS.

  • Yun, The Polish Hideout

    Haha that last cat pic is hilarious! And anniversary gifts are so hard, aren’t they? I usually start thinking like 6 months in advance and rarely end up with anything spectacular. I think we’ve just been married too long and all the good gifts have been given lol. :D

      Yeah, I think I outdid myself early on and now I’m out of ideas! But I always figure getting to spend time together is more important than a present in a box, so maybe we’ll plan a fun day trip or something with the money we would have spend on gifts. Especially since summer is finally here in force!

    1. Bahaha! Omg thats totally me after grubbing.
    2. You’re not the only one. I mean, they’re cute but they totally look like they’re hiding something.
    3. Oh my gosh, that’s hilarious.
    4. & 5. Damn this girl’s good. I’m so jealous, I want to have a fabulous singing voice too.
    7. Uh-oh, indeed. I never get the hubs anything for our anniversary so if you get your husband anything, you’re already a better wife than I am :)
    9. lmao…you really do that?! Hilarious. They’re a total pain in the ass to fold but I always fold them. It’s kind of my OCD thing.

    • Martha Woods

      Haha, I’m ashamed to admit it but yes–I wad those suckers up and stuff them in the dust bag. I’m OCD about everything else but somehow it hasn’t extended that far yet!
