Random Thoughts Thursday: Uppydate

They’re Random! They’re Thoughts! It’s Thursday!

This week: Uppydate

  • MirrorSkyDSFJust getting the wheels going again on RTT, the one and only Random Thoughts Thursday!
  • Accept no substitutes.
  • I re-signed-up with Netflix and have been Netflixing Oscar contenders.
  • I started with Boyhood. Wait, is it still on? I know it’s supposed to span 12 years, but is it supposed to feel that long?
  • #RichardLinklaterFail… and I still hadn’t forgiven you for Before Midnight.
  • Strike two! Bat carefully next time, Sir.
  • We had 2 days of spring and now the heat and humidity of summer is bullying its way in.
  • Sweaty joy.
  • Driving around is torture as everyone who hasn’t driven in months dusts off their cars and does 40mph on I-95.
  • Can’t decide what I dislike more — slow drivers or bicyclists dressed like Lance Armstrong wobbling on the edge of (and sometimes into traffic) on tiny, two-lane suburban scenic roads.
  • It’s like being in a real-life version of Frogger.
  • For the youngins: Frogger = by today’s standards lame video game in which you make a frog cross the street through heavy traffic.
  • Yes, it was fun. You just don’t know.
  • I’m writing a post about What I Did on My Bloggy Vacation.
  • I feel like Larry David and Seinfeld — since the weather was so bad, I did a lot more nothing than I anticipated.
  • I’m going to make up for that in May.
  • At least I feel more rested. Don’t let burnout happen to you, kids. It saps your energy and makes you sad and takes away the funny.
  • The more you know… and shooting star.
  • OH! This is important, speaking of nostalgia… LogoTV is showing reruns of many awesome shows, the most awesome of awesome being The Facts of Life.
  • I posted a tweet about it and Natalie liked it.
  • I’m going to go tease my hair to 80s Facts of Life height to pay homage. Happy weekend!


I'm a writer who loves to laugh and smile. :-)

    1. Thank you! And thank you for posting! I’ll be by to visit your blog soon. YAY!

      I didn’t corner the market on thoughts, but I tried to make the name a wee bit catchy. I do love a theme, you know? I’ve been RTTing (that’s Random Thoughts Thursday-ing) since 2004 (I used to have a pretty big blog back in the day). There’s a hashtag on Twitter, though, so others apparently had the same thought. 🙂

      Just wait and see what pops out of my head every week — some weeks are really weird! 🙂


  1. Boyhood DOES feel long. It’s because there’s not really a PLOT, per se, it’s just life stuff. I wasn’t jazzed by the whole thing. An interesting concept, sure, and done well, but I think it got a bit more hype than it deserved.
