Object Silliness for Humor Me Friday.

The truth is it’s become second nature. I’m not looking for them anymore. They just, show up. 

Last week, while on the road, I kept seeing them on the sides of houses. The windows were arranged specifically to form smiles, faces, etc.

Like this one..

The library had plenty to contribute…

A lopsided toothy grin.

And there he is again.

On our way out, Victor spotted him ^


And when we got to the church, on the piano… there was another grinner. 
We went for a walk, ended up at the outdoor portion of a museum, and there was the smiley.

In the same museum, behind the fence, was an onlooker…

At the small town consignment shop…there was a clock face.


And in the church cafeteria.. the doorknobs and trash grinned.

Keep smiling. Keep searching for the happy. And speaking of happy, Happy Friday Y’all!

Object Silliness.

Happy Wednesday! (I still don’t spell that right on the first try. One day …)
I’m packing. Washington awaits me. We’re finally going to church this weekend. We have our own services here every week, but it’ll be so nice to get to see everyone again, and worship in our own church, in a building, with fellow believers. 
So after that first Object Silliness post, we’ve managed to find a few more. 
I was half asleep in the car on our way back from Washington a few weeks ago, when I opened my eyes and saw a face staring out at me from the darkness. The lights on the truck ahead …. Do you see it?

Victor was watching his class when he called me from the living room. I walked over to him and he turned over the remote control. Smiley!

Last but not least, the shower caddy always has a big grin. Freaks me out at times…especially when the eyes start increasing and I start seeing…
That’s when I know shower time is over.

P.S. In case my drawing abilities aren’t um … quite clear, it’s a spider. (:

TidBits of March.

I’m excited about two more posts coming up. In fact I’m doing the I’ve-got-blog-posts-in-the-making happy dance, right now. But here are a few tidbits from my twitter, Facebook, and around…from March:

I follow a bunch of athletes on Twitter. Then I just sit here exercising vicariously. (:

Put cookies to cool outside. And then came a masked- I’m assuming- thief. 

Mother asked me to make Victor a sandwich. 
I did. According to him, “It tastes like charcoal! But delicious! Crunchy! It takes like it was baked!”
I’m taking it as a compliment

He was rattling off facts again, while I was studying for a Chem test.
“Larissa do you want another fact?” 
*sigh* “No. Not right now!” 
“Well I don’t care, did you know that Colombia prints more stamps than any other country?”
I grow wiser daily.

The amount of energy necessary to break up a nucleus into its component nucleons is called binding energy. Ironic Maybe?

I check out the children books we don’t finish.#BigReadingBuddyConfession #1
I buy enough treats so that there are some leftover for me.#BigReadingBuddyConfession #2

It has yet to be confirmed, but I’m pretty sure my first word..was food.

Surround yourself with people you want to be like. Find out what makes them tick. Implement.

And last but not least, something I have always believed in but had never been able to capture into words or explain,

“Without a destination, you’re left to wander. And while wandering may teach you things, expose you to new experiences, even shape who you are, it’s unlikely to bring you the sense of satisfaction that you so crave. You never feel the accomplishment of reaching the destination on your journey.” -Scoutie Girl

Hope y’all are having a great week so far. If not, cheer up, tomorrow’s Wednesday already!

TidBits of February.

Every time I think of Twitter/Tweets I get Rockin’ Robins stuck in my head- the version I learned as a kid, of course, it goes like this:

“Batman’s flying in the air,
Batman’s lost his underwear.
Batman says, ‘I don’t care,
Momma’s gonna buy me another pair.'”

Rockin’ Robin. Tweet-Tweetle-eet.
Rockin’ Robin.

Mother’s in the kitchen cooking rice,
Father’s in the basement catching mice.
Sister’s in class chewing gum.
Brother’s in his crib sucking his thumb.

Rockin’ Robin. Tweet-Tweetle-eet.”

All to the rhythm of MJ’s Rockin Robin [whose lyrics I have no idea of].

Where is all this leading? Another installment of TidBits. Again, mostly Twitter Tweets.

Dear Mark Twain, Thank you for instigating a strong urge to see Versailles now. Sincerely, I used to be happy.

Volunteering at the Clearbrook Library. So excited to be giving back to the @City_Abbotsford
{I’m a Big Buddy for the Big Buddy’s Program being held by the Literacy Matters Association. (They are awesome people by the way. They pair a volunteer with a struggling reader from K-5th grade to help each other out. Major kudos to them!) Monday was my first meeting with my Little Buddy. Quite exciting!}

The problem is, I think of such witty sayings, only to find out they’ve already been written. Or I forget them.

Victor throws me a gum, “Here. Make yourself useful. Chew gum.” I don’t know where gets stuff like that.

My boyfriend does this cute little thing where he doesn’t exist.

Someone. Please. Say something non Super Bowl or Madonna related!! 
{This was my plea all through Sunday. I was a tad bit frantic. I don’t enjoy watching hand eggs being thrown around from blue spandex pant wearing man to yellow spandex pant wearing one who beats his head into the blue spandexed guy for no apparent reason. Ghastly. (The spandex of course)}

I love it when History is nice to us. Like putting Black Tuesday on the 29th of October of 1929#MakesLifeEasier

I loath you radical quadratic equations. I really loathe you.

Signing up for the SAT’s that are a month away. Shaking and thinking, “What am I doing!” 
{This is true. Today I will be, God willing, picking up an application and mailing it away. The SAT test is a month away, and I’m not ready for it. At all. One month to get ready, so if you have any advice/tips/study help (other than “WHY! Did you leave it for the last minute?!”) I’m begging open for advice. I’m not expecting out of this world results, I just need to get acquainted with the whole process. But more on that some other time. Trust me. I have posts to write about SAT’s.} 

I hate making excuses for not blogging. They’re excuses. If my life depended on it I would find time to blog. So instead of excusing myself, I will simply say, I have much studying and preparing to do, and I will post as often as I can/whenever the moon and stars aligned properly. See you around, and if not, bear with me. I still exist, I’m simply in a serious relationship with math and other school subjects. {They’re very jealous partners, and tend to pout when I ignore them.}

Ta-ta For Now! (I seriously almost ended this post with a, “Stay Thirsty My Friends.” I’ve realized I have got to stop watching commercials now.)
