Feeling Random

-I miss coffee. I haven't had a drop in over a month. I only started drinking coffee a couple years ago when my in-laws came to visit and I had to get a coffeemaker for the visit. It was an instant addiction. I always quit when summer starts because I get nauseous just thinking about having a hot drink when it's 90 degrees out and I hate cold coffee drinks. This does not mean that I yearn for winter, I hate winter. It just means that I drink a lot of sun tea.

-I like bumblebees. I prefer them to regular bees. Why? Because they don't sting and they're fat. The fact that they're fat makes them cuter. Honeybees get all the glory because, well, honey is awesome on fresh biscuits and bumblebees are kind of big and scary. Sometimes, when I'm out walking, they bump into my head. But still, they're pretty cute.

-There's a small bat that flies through our breezeway everyday at dusk looking for bugs. I'm scared to death of it. I swear the noise it makes sounds like a baby saying,"Rabies, Rabies!"

-I'm also afraid of vultures. There are a few that roost in the trees near my building. I was walking Peanut one day and looked up and there they were. In the branches watching me silently with their beady eyes, 3 of them almost the same damn size as me. I always envision them grabbing me by my ponytail and flying away to poke my eyeballs out.

-I started jogging again. There's a few men that jog in the fitness room at the same time I do and I feel like such a badass because I always outrun them. A couple of them are senior citizens so I really shouldn't get so uppity.

your post made me laugh with delight. All the characters in your day. The bumble bees, the bat, peanut and the vultures. I wish I could meet them all.

I will have a cup of cofee for you today. It is cold and wintry here. It will have to be decaf. About a year ago real cofee started turning me into a ball of rage. Like pms on steroids.

There you go, whupping senior ass again. Poor old men never knew what hit 'em.

I like bees, too. I am allergic to wasp stings, but not to bees or thankfully, honey.

Vultures aren't so scary, more like Snoopy on top of his doghouse. Unless you look like carrion, which I happen to know you don't.

Have a fun day today, too, with all your little friends.

ICED coffee.

Bumblees = cute as a bug- har har.

Have a friend that just got bit by a bat- BAD.

No vultures in my part of the world...

Jogging- not for me so much, but good for you!

Aimee said...

hahaha I'm cracking up at you excelling over those senior citizens. hehe. Good job girl!

I can't stand hot coffee. It has to be iced for me to even consider drinking it (and even then, I prefer rootbeer or a soft drink).

Plenty of fun here... lots of great facts. :) I have no doubt that you could outrun me as well. LOL

You are so cute and funny. I love bumblebees too!

And I'm not sure I could function without coffee. Pretty sure not. Nope.

anne said...

Bumblebees are cute indeed. So fuzzy! So round! So yellow-and-black! I also think honeybees are cute, though.

No need to fear the vulture, my friend - their beaks aren't strong enough for live meat, so to speak! Kind of funny that my avatar on this comment page is going to show up as a vulture. Heh.

Good for you on the jogging! You're the second person I know who has recently taken it up. Alas, my knee is still in no shape for jogging. I'm envious.

I just envisioned you surrounded by a wicked amount of wildlife and running senior citizens. Too funny.
