Some of the more irrelevant, downright hysterical, and sometimes even scary things I've learned recently in my Never-Ending Quest for Edukation includes:
OK so we already have fast food restaurants, family, upscale restaurants, drive-thurs, deliveries, catering and even road-side food trucks... and ((now)) we have to add Pop-Up Restaurants to our ever-growing list of restaurant specialties? Really?
So what is a Pop-Up Restaurant? Well...according to a recent article in the Tennessean - "A pop-up restaurant is a hush-hush, one-night-only experience in which the menu and location, usually an under-utilized space or an unconventional public setting, are kept secret until the day before the event, at which point attendees receive an email about the location."
-Umm, last minute scheduling? To eat? Yep, pretty sure you can go ahead and count me out on this new impromptu fad.
Word of the Week
Recalcitrant (re·cal·ci·trant) - Marked by stubborn resistance to and defiance of authority or guidance.
OK it would be remiss of me not to mention the latest school progress reports that the munchkins brought home and especially seeing as how all of my BFFs are snickering about it, no let's just make that howling from the roof-tops in hysterical fits of laughter.
It's really OK because while we didn't go through all of the trouble ie...paperwork to fix the PE grade of a "C" which belonged to a certain lil munchkin, we did feel that a major band class failure (as in an "F") did warrent some parental intervention.
While we did expect the munchkin to hit an "F" note or two in band, this was not really what we had in mind and, needless to say, at least we do have some written proof that we will, no doubt, use against him one day.
I have two lizards that have decided that the ledge of my office window is their very own tanning spot. They really creep me out! I'm half expecting to glance over one morning only to find that these down-right creepy little crawlers had set up their very own little tiki bar & cabana too. Pretty sure that would absolutely flip me right into the twilight zone.
I sure would love to know a way to get rid of them - Any no-kill suggestions? Any suggestions at all?
