Strange Marketing

It's only Monday after returning to work from my glorious vacation, and yet Grandy already finds herself asking WTF.

While trying to wind down, and also trying to tune out the TV commercials, a commercial came on I hadn't clued in on before.


Learning in your pajamas?

I thought the FIRST commercial they drowned us with (that twit that sings the annoying song) was bad enough. Are they actually reaching the couch potato population and going to inspire them into an education?


I am all for online colleges...but REALLY? It's more fun to do a lot of things in your pajamas, but I'm not sure my degree decision was based on fuzzy slippers.

Family Vacation minus 1

As you read this, Grandy & the little man are off on a vacation to DC. Fubby couldn't come with us this time, and it's kinda feeling like it won't be the same.

I've taken business trips without him, and gone on weekends away with girlfriends, but I've never taken an actual "vacation" without him since we've been together.

It will be odd I think. Little man and I will have a great time, I'm sure. We get to travel with Mom, a Sister, and her family. Lots of pictures will be taken, lots of laughs will be shared, and lots of memories will be made.

Somehow I think just won't be the same. If Fubby read my blog, I would put a little note here that said something like, "See you when we'll get back! We'll miss you!"

But alas...he doesn' that would be pointless.

Have a great day everybody!!!

Adventurous Folks

So there's a new girl in Grandy's office. She's very cool, adventurous and fun. Adventurous folks don't exactly understand Grandy's phobias of things. GRANDY doesn't even understand some of her phobias.

A little while back, she's talking to someone about all the fun things she would like to do, or has already done.

"Scuba diving is my current passion right now," she says as the dialogue goes from one adventure to another.

Because Grandy is not the best swimmer in the world, she doesn't contribute to the conversation, but instead just keeps working.

Blah blah blah "hang gliding" blah blah.

Still silently working. Remember Grandy's fear of heights??

And then...


To which the person she was having the discussion with must have even thought THAT was too much for her as she says, "Good luck with THAT."

"Oh come on!!"

Then cute new girl turns her attention to me, "Hey Grandy, wouldn't skydiving be on your bucket list?"

My reply...

"I'm afraid if I had to try skydiving, it would be on my KICK-THE-BUCKET list."


Laughter ensues and Grandy dodges yet another bullet of awkwardness...kinda.
