Things I've Learned Thursday

Being unemployed, I'm a learning machine! Well, if I can retain all that I've learned then I'd be a genius.

Things I've Learned....

1) The grass isn't always greener on the other side. Living in the moment creates more of a sense of contentment than looking far ahead.

2) When wine tasting, always swirl the wine around and sniff and then swirl again. It makes it seem like you know what you're doing when you really don't.

3) I've been mispronouncing the word "salmonella" all these years. Thanks to Married Boo for setting me straight. (It isn't samo but salmo).

4) Carrots and peanut butter is yummy. (Thanks Tami and Caleb for bringing that to my attention.)

5) If I have a chance to come back as an animal, I choose the pig. They love playing in mud, don't care if they're fat and know how to kick it hard with a smile on their face.

6) Pit bulls have been given a bad rap. My pit, Humble is the most wimpiest, loving, cuddle bug. He would lick a burglar and give him complete access to the house. My shih tzus are the ones the burglars have to worry about!

7) I love it when my Boo calls me by my nickname. It makes me smile.

8) I speak Spanish pretty well but always laugh when I attempt to say the last name, "Herrerra". I can't roll my r's well at all.

9) When the part on the toilet the breaks is called a ball cock, be very careful with describing the part needed at the hardware store within earshot of anyone else.

10) The blue dye found in M&Ms and gatorade is known to speed up healing in spinal cord injuries.

What have you learned?

I've learnt today that I can't remember what I used to do for fun before blogging and facebook.

That facial masks work better if you keep it on for a couple of hrs.

That forgives cleanses the spirit!

#4 --really? I guess.. if it works with celery... why NOT! LOL :)

Teresa @ Grammy Girlfriend said...

Always enjoy your posts and I just learned a few things...

Jeanette said...

For the longest time I mispronounced the word "cache" so when the whole weapons of mass destructions thing came up (or made up) I kept hearing the word but not knowing what they meant.

I'm more afraid of Chihuahuas than Pitts...them Chihuahuas are scary little fierce things! My dad had one that nearly tore my finger open just 'cause I reached for my dad's jacket!

As for the pig thing...you might want to rethink that...pigs get eaten!LOL

I'm so naughty...can't wait to go to the local hardware place and ask for one...the biggest one they have!LOL!!

i love what you have learned!
I have learned much through being unemployed as well. I've learned to let go of pride.

Tami said...

LOL, YOU LIKED THE CARROTS AND P'NUT BUTTER! YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY
It's a fav here at the house!
Apples, celery, chocolate, even melted p'nut butter on ICE CREAM!
Lord have mercy I'm in deep trouble! LOL

I had NO idea about that blue dye! amazing!

Thanks for introducing me to Things I've Learned Thursday.

Mandy said...

I learned that you are one of the coolest chicks out here in bloggy land! Love these Thursday posts by you!

I totally agree about the wine swishing thing and the little scary dogs. Just the word "hard" ware is enough said! ;-) I guess a man must've made up all the words for tools and appliances.

My grass isn't greener here - it's dying but I'm hoping for some beach front property soon. Hey a girl can dream, can't she?

I love your blog today! So creative and unique. I didn't know about the blue dye in M&M's or Gatorade. I know I can deal with eating M&M's but I can imagine the look of horror on some peoples face when I tell them it's for spinal cord injuries???

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I'm all about #1 today, pally. We spend waayyyy too much time looking ahead, worrying about what might be. I've been really working on that "live a bit for today" too lately. I was too stressed out the other way. That's typically my Friday message on the blog--breathe deep and slow down. :)

♥georgie♥ said...

I have learned that looking for houses is hard work and you cant please everyone....loved your list...

OH and I read Reese your comment...he told me to break up with you...LOL

Justine said...

OMG, this one really cracked me up. Ball cock? heeheeheeeeeeeeeeee! SAMON-ella? You doofus!

Do you want to be a boy pig or a girl pig? Because boy pigs have the cutest little squiggly peckers! Have you ever seen one? Really thin, long, and like their tail!

Justine :o )

Jenjen @GottaLoveMom said...

You're a sponge!!

We've been living on a budget since OCt 2008...and we're just so amazed on how creative we can be!

1. You can't tell anyone anything.
2. People don't always act like you think they should.
3. Boys are stupid.

Interesting! I am going to try carrots and PB! How about carrots with PB & honey???

I love a grilled PB & bacon sandwich (white bread).

Your list is sweet. I bet your pit is adorable.

Have a super great weekend! xoxo

#5 - If you have received the same chain email that I'd received, then you'd know there's one more super reason why many would want to come back as a pig in their next life. ;p

krismn said...

I really enjoy your blog, thank you. And, I agree with #6, I too have a Pit named "Martini" and she is the sweetest baby out there, she makes me laugh everyday!! Have a great day.

Danica said...

Who knew about the blue dye in M&M's. Huh.

I haven't learned much this week! HA
