Friday Fragments - A Pictorial

Friday Fragments?
Total Friday randomness...

You know how we have our bed to ourselves now? Well, I forgot about this guy:



No, unfortunately it isn't some fancy marital aid.

I don't know if I ever told you, but I think our bedroom ceiling fan is haunted. Every summer, it gets a little warm in our bedroom, which sits over the garage. So we installed a ceiling fan, one complete with a light and three spinning speeds. It's wonderful what a little air circulation will do.

After about a year or so, it started to do some funny stuff. Like all of a sudden crank up from level one to hyper level three speed. Or if the light was off, it would turn on. Or the whole thing would shut off. All completely on its own. At first it used to freak us out.

We thought it might be the batteries in the remote. But we've changed them, and it doesn't make a difference. Some weird phantom just loves to mess with us just as we're trying to get to REM stage. So what do we do? We sleep with the remote...and whosoever happens to be awake when the light goes on at 3 AM, or the blades of the fan fly at speeds that threaten to decapitate us while we're in dreamland; well, that person has to hit the appropriate button. I think we're destined to keep those LOSER T's permanently...

Welcome to our fridge:


I forgot that I put Ms. Little Pony in there for the girlie; hubs apparently saw it the other day when he went to get a beer, but didn't comment. Gee, this Dad thing must be old hat to him now.


Just so you know, this is our treatment for Little Pony vitiligo. Pony turns white when you hold it, so it must go back to deep freeze to get its pink on. Girlie is turning into an ingenious vet these days.

MOOOOOOOOOOO...


Yes, I splurged and got blog cards for the upcoming BlogHer-thing-a-ma-bop...and while I was at it I also got myself a totally frivolous Betseyville bag for a steal at Winners. The animal print is as garish or as stylish as can be, depending on who you talk to.


It's a computer case, but looks like a typical carry-on, so people don't necessarily think you're carrying your laptop in there and won't steal it. Except now I've just told the internet. Great. Well, I'm in the market for a new one anyway.

Now I just need some comfortable but sexy shoes. Oxymoron, I know. Seriously, no Fashion Fridays in a long, long time means there's a void to fill.

Oh, and my hairstylist is back from mat. leave. Whoopeee!!!

I like the Moo cards.

I thought about getting some but then thought--who'd I give them to.

ConverseMomma said...

Oh, your cards look fancy schmancy. I did such simple ones, no pics...black and white. I am so excited about blogher, and to know you are going too-even cooler. We'll have to hook up and hang.

Red Lotus Mama said...

Spooky about the ceiling fan. Maybe some wires crossed when it got installed?

That is hilarious about the pony! That might freak me out if I opened up the fridge and found it hanging out next to my beer.

Just ordered me and Miss some Moo cards today. Wanna trade at BlogHer?

Love the bag! Love the hair! Happy Friday!

Jocelyn said...

I want more fragments from YOU! So fun.

But now I have to go to the airport and wait there until I can steal your bag. Cuz I know all about it now.

Very cool bag and very cool hair. Am seriously jealous of both. And the whole BlogHer thing. That too.

Knatolee said...

I'm so relieved our bedroom ceiling fan isn't haunted, because we don't have a remote. HAHAHA!

And I laughed out loud at vitiligo pony. But your hair looks great!

"Better" fragments? You're silly.
Okay, now I'm freaking out about BlogHer--no cool purse, no decent shoes, no money to buy new ones. I'm going to be a fashion outcast, unfortunately...

On a serious note, I wish you would have an electrician look at the wiring of that fan; if it acts crazy like that, it could indicate some kind of wiring problem that could lead to a fire.

Wonderful cards for BlogHer. I so wish I was going this year.

Comfortable and sexy is a hard combo to find with shoes. I turn to flats or kitten heals for comfort and style.

designHER Momma said...

fantastic cards and bag! My sister actually works for Betsy in NYC, handing her dresses in her showroom.

Can't wait to see you in the Windy City in just a couple weeks!

Popping in from SITS to say good morning!

Okay, this is going to sound totally strange, but in my old house we had a ceiling fan that did the exact same thing!

Yaya said...

I want blog cards!!! Where'd you get those?

Susie said...

A haunted ceiling fan and ponies in the freezer! Awesome:-)

Mocha Dad said...

Nice hairstyle. I was disappointed that the remote was not a marital aid, though.

Karen said...

LOVE the haircut. I seriously need a good beautician. And the iced pony cracks me up. Love it.

C said...

Ohhhhhhhh! LOVE the MOO cards!!! I soooooooo wish I were able to make it to BlogHer this year! :(

You look gorgeous, btw!!

Tooj said...

Oh, my little ponies!!! That's taking me back. :) And in the fridge? Dad didn't blink? Yup, that's a sign.....
I think I mentioned this to you already, but I'm a little jealous of all of you going to Blog-Her thingamabob. I can't wait to hear who met who and what went on.

Cute hair. Really.

Take the batteries out of the remote, and leave it in another room...does the fan still freak out? Then at least you'd know if it's the remote or the fan. Don't know if it helps to know...it would help me a bit. Like if it's the remote, you might be able to get it replaced. Or clean out the battery area or something.

The pony in the fridge made me chuckle..

I love the hair and your Moo cards are AWESOME (I love Moo!!)
