Oh, Big Brother, Where Art Thou?

I don't have time for blogging this week, but I need to get that last post out of the headlining spot.


And yay. Because I figured out how to make and publish a video. I'm so techy now, I almost need new friends.

All this technology got me thinking that a good way for (insert your favorite conspiracy theory's antagonist) to track us would be to rig our computers so that they are always recording us, even when we aren't in Photo Booth mode.


Which made me wonder what "they" know about me so far:

1. I have a really ugly office chair.
2. Yes, I can in fact eat an entire container of salted caramels in one sitting.
3. I always have a snack handy. Unless my kids come in here. Then my snack gets quickly shoved into a basket.
4. I talk to myself. Especially the word, "Really?"
5. Sometimes when I hear my kids calling for me and I can tell they just want to tattle on someone, I lean over and shut my door and pretend I'm not here. It doesn't work. Anymore.
6. I get motion sick if I scroll through Pinterest for too long.
7. I let my kids play way too many PBS Kids games.
8. I can never find a pen. Never.
9. I get inordinately enraged at my printer (it usually involves several, "really?"s).


Let's face it. Whoever they are, they quit watching my footage years ago.

Which was all part of my plan.

Is the eating thing genetic? AND why do we NOT share our treats with our kids? I could sleep in EVERY morning if I would only stop eating the entire bag of chocolate chips by one day!

Umm....forgot to say--I only used to use greek yogurt as a sour cream substitute, and now I just embrace the fact that I love sour cream with all its fatty goodness. But now--thanks to my bro-in-law, I am slightly in love with HONEY flavored greek is so creamy rich I feel like I am eating pure ice cream that is not quite frozen (the full fat kind.) And yet, I don't feel nearly as guilty when I finish off the container in one sitting.

FYI: yogurt is the food with the easiest absorption of Calcium.

that is worded awkwardly.

At least you just stick to "really?!" I'd say that's pretty awesome, really.

I only have a camera in my office. So . . .they would be very bored. They would say "Lets go back to watching Andrea, I wonder were she gets those salted carmals"
