I just found my new favorite show. And also why my kids don’t eat bananas.

I need a real job.

If only it were edible

This came up on my ads today.

1. I don’t want this blanket, but I really want a pizza now.

2. Isn’t it odd that these girls in a white bedroom are just reading a book like normal people under their blanket. I think if someone had a pizza blanket, they’d probably just be rolling around all over the floor laughing hysterically.

Why didn’t I think of that?

I can’t believe I never thought of doing this. I’ve tried wearing 4 layers of clothes but this one never occured to me!

No one wants see-through bathrooms

Looking up hotels for Barcelona and starting to remember how it was last time we were there. Both of the hotels we stayed in just had weird frosted glass separating the bathroom from the main room. Who wants this? We had to start leaving the room each time the other one really needed to use the toilet because it was too embarassing.

Looking through hotels today, I see nothing has changed. Took a screenshot of how the bathrooms look in many Barcelona hotels:

I’d love to have a glass, but I’m the designated driver

At a party a few weeks ago where I happened to be the designated driver, this was one of the drinks served. I chose the right party to volunteer to not drink alcohol.
