An Ol’ Broad’s Ramblings

Some Observations

Filed under: Stuff — olbroad @ 12:22

Why is it when you spend too much time alone, you start talking to inanimate objects? I had a conversation with a sock today. Granted it was one sided, but…..

It never fails. I gloat to Mr. Ol’ Broad how warm it is here in Tennessee and I’ll be darned if the temperature doesn’t do a nose dive. HUSH!  It’s still warmer here than it is there!

My laptop makes my knees itch if I have it sitting there too long.

Every time I find something I really like, they either change it, or discontinue making said well liked item.

Moving from one state to another doesn’t stop telemarketers from hunting you down, even if you have an unpublished number.

No matter what the temperature is, when you get out of the shower, you are going to be cold.

Recently, I’ve woken up and couldn’t remember where I was. Is that old age, or not staying in one place long enough to get use to it?

No matter that my intention every night is to be in bed at a decent hour, I always start reading posts and papers and the time just slips by…with itchy knees.

No matter how long you are away from your four legged children, you will still find cat hair somewhere.

Even though I’ve told people I am stuck on dial up, and NOT to send me any large files, inevitably, someone will send me some HUGE file that prevents me from getting the rest of my email for what seems like, and has been, an hour.

WISN seems to play the same two commercials over and over and over and over….. the Clinton and Bush, Sr. one, and Maureen McGovern singing.  ARRRRRRG!

Reminder to self:  Self, please write notes in order to remember what it was that was so important it needed to be done today!



  1. I turn off the radio at the nearest sign of the INET condescending Indian accent ads, and the Fish oil ads with the annoying woman….

    I haven’t been that annoyed since the singing Wellington Window ads on ‘TMJ which actually semi-caused me to leave that radio station…

  3. I should probably shove earplugs in my ears, but by the time I get ’em in, it’ll be over, and I’d be doubly annoyed. LOL

  4. Your bed a decent hour one…yup, that’s me, too! It’s now 12:30 am and I have to get up by 6 for my daughter’s cheer competition! (sigh)

  5. Who on earth sets a cheering competition that bloomin’ early in the morning? Should be shot! In the hiney of course. 🙂
