From my psychiatric rotation during nursing school, I remember that flight of ideas is a symptom or characteristic of several mental disorders.

Personally, I think it's just a blogging technique.

  • We had some summertime goodness for dinner tonight: hamburgers and corn on the cob cooked on the grill. The only thing that could have topped that would have been homegrown tomatoes on the burgers.
  • We're in the middle of VBS at our church, doing Lifeway's Saddle Ridge Ranch. I'm doing registration/attendance, and we have more than 325 "cowpokes" registered, which I think is a record. It's a fun week, but exhausting.
  • My boy is getting really close to making Eagle Scout. All he lacks is one requirement on each of three merit badges, the okay from district on his project plan, and then doing the actual project.
  • I hate it when perfectly functional websites decide they need to be new and improved. The service (or whatever you call it) that I use for my personal email did that yesterday. And now there is so much stuff on the opening page, I can barely find my inbox. And switching the buttons around on its toolbar is completely aggravating. Everytime I try to delete an email, I end up hitting Reply. Sigh. Change can be a good thing, but sometimes it's totally unnecessary.
  • I L-O-V-E the combination of clean sheets, clean pajamas, and clean hair. Makes me sleep better. Of course, the reason could be the exhaustion from washing said sheets, pajamas, and hair. . . .
  • I'm still mentally enjoying the musical Wicked, which we saw this past weekend in Houston; we took my MIL with us. We saw it in Austin last summer, but it was the day that my FIL died, so we were a bit distracted. As a word geek lover, I especially enjoyed the clever lyrics and the nuances of the dialogue. This is one of my favorite songs, when the two very opposite girls discover that they are roommates.

    Then, as so often happens, they become close friends. . . .

Sigh. Such a fun musical.

Have a great Wednesday!

I love my Gamil account. This might be a good time to try. It is clean and uncluttered and super easy to use!

We're all missing the Random Dozen : ( I have been doing random every Wed. on my blog but its not quite as much fun as hopping around via Lindas.

I love Wicked too...its one of my favorites. Did you read the book because my daughter said the book is really quite dark.

I am with you on changing up the home page...I hate when they do that. I eventually get used to the new way and then bam they change it again.

Congratulations to your son and best of luck to him as he finishes up. Its a big hubs was an Eagle Scout and we've been to several ceremonies for friends in recent years. You should all feel proud.

I love, love this musical!! I have seen it twice and am taking my mom to see it in Sept.!! My daughter read the book...nothing like the show and very dark.

Christine said...

Early Congrats to your son. I can't imagine the dedication it's taken to get to that point. My Big Guy will bridge over this year to Boy Scouts.

Fresh Summer meals are the best too!

Have not seen Wicked but would love to!

I agree..clean sheets, pj after a nice hot shower, there is nothing better in my book!

I hate that when a web site changes everything, not always for the better. I keep thinking, "Who thought this was such a good idea?!"

Congrats to your son on his hard work!

Love clean sheets and nightgown, too.

You are SOOO funny Linda!! We must use the same web site, because I can't find my email box either! It wasn't why'd they fix it?!

My boys had their court of honor to move to Star last night! One step closer! I'm proud of your boy!!

I like it when you go random! I should do that too!!

Great post. Congratulations to your son. It is a big accomplishment. My younger son was a scout but had no interest in getting his Eagle Scout.

I've only heard the title "Wicked". It evidently isn't what I thought. Sounds interesting.
