Pink Sky At Night

October 31, 2012 at 5:11 pm (For The Cure, Holiday, Pink October) (, , , , )

And that about wraps it up for this month. It wasn’t every day but it was pretty close. And a lot better than I have been doing. It’s time for the annual candy run around here, except this year my kids really are done with it. I had to buy my own candy. You know, for the trick or treaters. As if we really get enough kids around here anymore for the obscene amount of candy I spent my good money on. I see nothing ahead for the next few weeks except chocolate zits and thunder thighs. Next post, candy and a costume.  And one more sky pic for good measure:

Salt. For The Cure. Better Than Nothing?

October 22, 2012 at 12:54 pm (For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , )

I had to post something. It’s been too long and I have no time, but I have to get the word “booger” off of my front page. It’s just does not reflect the seriousness  and maturity that I bring to the table every day. Ha. Table. Like table salt. Ewww. That was a stretch. Anyhow, here is something new with the pink ribbon on it. We had it in our cabinet. Didn’t even realize we bought it. Plus it’s really raining out there today so it fits for more than one reason. I need to get to work. They refuse to pay me for sitting at home. Boo hoo. Everyone have a safe and happy day. Later.

Cereal For The Cure

October 6, 2012 at 2:04 pm (For Mason, For Stevie, For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , , , )

Saturday morning! No work! Getting another post in for Pink October! Didn’t even realize I had bought the “pink” cereal. So there’s the front.

Here’s the back. This is part of the Save Lids To Save Lives campaign. Yogurt is expanding out to cereal boxes. And other General Mills products. I’m not endorsing any one company, charity organization, or food group. Well maybe the food group. Boxed food is my kind of cooking. Anyway, this is just putting info out into the world. You pick your cause and how you want to contribute.

And since it is Saturday and all my original plans got canceled, I think I might post some other stuff too. For fun. Plus it turned cold on us here in the Midwest. Summer is over. Just like that. Thursday afternoon 82 to Saturday morning 34. I took Mason to football practice and then sat in a quiet house, in the overcast living room, on the big couch in the corner, drinking coffee, reading random written materials and playing games on my phone. It was nice. I think I might go shower now and put on a clean set of comfy clothes and get ready for a night in. The girl is going to a friends house and the boy is going to homecoming. My job is to drive and pick up and take pictures. I will also prob update some of the feature pages to the right there. Every now and then I like to add a new pic or change some wording around. I haven’t posted any street money in awhile, or a NY coffee cup, or even a magazine collection upgrade. I’ve recently added nursing mags to the growing pile of “things I look at every day but never actually read”.

I must also throw in a quick side note of thanks and appreciation to my fabulous and tolerant BF who only complains a little bit at a time and lets me squirrel away crap like this without totally blowing a gasket. I got rid of all the End Of The World clippings today and three magazines so far! (I bought the BF a semi-serious, humorous mix of facts and fun, daily desk calendar counting down the days to the end of the world this year, and he brings them home for me periodically to read. Good material. I have some posts in the hopper dedicated to our last days on Earth. But time really is running out, and at the rate that I post, if the world does end in December, none of this will matter. We will all die never knowing what hilarity I had in store for us! Oh, the humanity!) Anyway…3 mags and the loose papers. This might be the weekend honey! (OCD is a disease. Hoarding is a mental disorder. Don’t judge.)

Alright the day is moving forward. Let me wrap this up and try to go for the record of two posts in a day. After I take care of kid and house business. Until later then, I leave you with my pink kids. They took this pic of themselves just goofing around, but it’s good. They look happy and healthy and it’s one of my favs now.

Friday. Pink And Lazy.

October 5, 2012 at 12:47 pm (For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , , )

Going with the old “stand-by” shots. There is a term for this in TV news and I cannot remember what it is called and I couldn’t find it on the internet.

Help me! If you know it, or want to do something researchy today, find it and comment it to me! It’s the running footage of people or things that plays behind the anchor person on the news when they are reading a story. A story that is general in nature. Like about losing weight, or a new product coming out, or gas prices. They play clips of pictures or video of overweight people walking down the street or someone standing in line or someone pumping gas at a gas station.

This footage has a name! You need to find it while I am at work and let me know!

That’s what this pink day is all about. Now get to work!

Let’s Go With Pink Noise Today

October 4, 2012 at 1:30 pm (For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , )

This is an old T-shirt, from my old job, from an old (?) company, that gave these out for free, and may or may not still be in business. I always liked the shirt. It’s made with good material, has nice size and was very pink at one point but became more tie-dye-pink looking as the years progressed. I like to drag it out when I need to wear pink for such an occasion as this month. When you are in nursing school, representing is always a good thing. Now I am a slave to my scrubs. One color. Not pink. But I can always wear something pink under them! Anyway, it’s today’s picture. Gotta go to work again. Later!

Warriors In Pink

October 3, 2012 at 12:42 pm (Big Animals, For The Cure, Pink October) (, , , )

This is kind of a lazy post today because I am really crunched for time, but it’s not nearly as lazy as the second pink elephant picture I was going to post. Different angle, different pic. That’s my philosophy. I also have some pink sky pics I took last night to throw up here, but those can be for tomorrow in case I can’t find anything cooler today while I am out at work and in the world. I plan on filling in the pink spaces with other stuff too. I have more ideas than just this one “Pink October” thing I am trying to start. But as you all know from reading this blog daily, weekly, whenever the computer skips to it accidentally while you are searching for something else…I have a small problem with consistency and carrying out a theme to the end without getting sidetracked by five or ten other themes. It’s almost happening right now while I am typing. Refocus. I really do have to go. Shower and work. Here’s that elephant picture anyway so I won’t be tempted to use it later. Later!
