It’s raining iguanas

I wonder if the app on my phone has an iguana emoji on the weather report?

I think it’s just the headline that makes me laugh – ‘for some reason’.  It’s just a “who cares” and “why does it matter” sort of thing.

The article is pretty funny. I’m also glad this stuff turns up on the front page of the news. If you want to read this important, breaking story, you can find it here.

Duvet cover

It’s time for a new duvet cover for the bed. My husband said I could pick it out.

ONLY cats IN bananas

You know, Amazon….

I look for shirts with this cat in a banana because I like the cat IN the banana.  I do NOT want suggestions on cat shirts or banana shirts. Only cats INSIDE bananas.

Work on your algorithm.

Can someone explain this?

These signs were all over Barcelona. Why?!

Does Barcelona hate Warner Bros?

Does Barcelona hate Tweety because of his treatment of Sylvester?

Does anyone know?

I’m an adult

Taco Bell does not exist in Sweden. Therefore, on our recent trip to Barcelona, I really wanted to go to one since I haven’t eaten there for 3 years.

When I was a kid, I was allowed to get a beef burrito and a small order of nachos.

Now I’m an adult and I decide for myself. So I got a beef burrito and a LARGE order of nachos.

Big Fun

Back from a week of replenishing Vitamin D in Barcelona!

I have no idea what the “Big Fun Museum” is, but if I lived in Barcelona, I would totally get a job as one of the characters on the street trying to get people to come in.  Big Fun indeed.

Winter dose of Vitamin D

Going on a short trip to see some real sunshine! Haven’t seen real sun for a couple of months now. Getting weak and pasty! Also, I’m out of Vitamin D pills, so what choice did I have?

Merry Christmas from Pigs without Pants

I’ve always thought pigs on cards at Chrsitmas is a strange thing. Apparently, many places eat ham for Christmas dinner, so this somehow equates to pig cards, pig cookie cutters, pig ornaments, etc. It’s just weird, especially when the pig is happy or also excited about Christmas. Just seems cruel.

But one thing I’ve noticed…. no matter where you are in the world… pigs don’t wear pants.

Merry Christmas. I leave you with these words:

We are all the same in this world. No matter what country you live in, pigs don’t wear pants.

All of the other reindeer USED to laugh..

I had to go to the grocery store to buy reindeer for dinner tonight. I plan to tell the kids that these were the reindeer that just didn’t make the cut for the holidays. (Then I’m going to throw just one cherry tomato into the mix).

So now here’s my list of TERRIBLE Christmas music! It’s a great list to have if you want to get rid of holiday guests.
