Shine On, You Crazy Diamond

You know what we're doing today, kids? We're talking about stupid stuff, because there is WAY too much real-life stupid stuff going on in the world right now, so how does Shannan deal with it?

a) By talking about herself in the third person
b) By talking about stupid stuff
c) By drinking Mad Dog 20/20 and Boone's Farm cocktails
d) All of the above

So what you're getting today, kids, is a random smattering of completely random, somewhat illogical thoughts that have popped into my brain (and which I just mis-typed as pooped into my brain - same dif). Get ready to live.

If you're keeping score, I still loathe open-toed booties with every fiber of my being. I just don't get it. If it's cold enough for booties, I don't want my toes sticking out. Call me crazy. Just don't call me late for dinner, and DO NOT, under any circumstances, play Call Me, Maybe.

I like to think of Emmy Rossum as the Non-Annoying Anne Hathaway. True story.

I don't know if my office building is a real-life-size roach motel, but I'm beginning to think so, cuz every day for the past few days whenever I walk in there are random roaches scattered around on their backs, slowly dying, waving their tiny feet feebly while I just watch and laugh. Okay, I don't really laugh, but the rest is true. Hey, at least it's not like that time when my co-worker backed up her chair to go to the copier and rolled over a mouse. THAT, folks, is a gen-u-wine, Grade-A, gross-but-true story. And don't think there wasn't a good amount of screaming that followed.

Someone has two thumbs, tingly lady bits, and just watched Shame the other night, and it's THIS guy. And ya'll? I FINALLY GET THE HYPE about Michael Fassbender. I also think Fassbender is a name that is prime to be porn-starred. Here:

I also feel like Michael Fassbender and Joaquin Phoenix need to do a movie as brothers.

My Fountains of Wayne Pandora station is currently my faves. It's as happy as an orange slice. Speaking of orange slices, here is a convo I had with the kids the other night, after getting onto Simon for telling a lie:

Simon: I was just joking.
Me: No you weren't, you purposely told a lie when Mommy asked you a question.
Gavin: Yeah, jokes are about fruit.
Me: They're about fruit????
Gavin: Yeah, like "Knock-knock, who's there? Me. Aren't you glad we have oranges in the house?"
Me: Laughing, That is the BEST. JOKE. EVER. 

Clearly he was channeling the old "orange you glad I didn't say banana" knock-knock classic, with a bit of a spin on it.

Wearing red makes me happy. 

Finally, if I could leave you with one random thought, it would be that dreams where one is making out with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson do NOT suck.

O....M....G!!! Best post ever! I don't even know where to start. The outfit is killer (and your legs are WAY too tan for the April we've been having up here). Going to copy you for sure if it ever warms up. Fassbender--yum, just yum. Giggled at the "fruit" joke. And, The Rock? Yes! Thank you for all that and more! People like you remind me that the world isn't as sucky as it seems.

Karrin - first of all, thank you kindly. Secondly, that is spray tan at its finest (left over from girls' weekend). Thirdly, I'm glad I could help de-suck the world just a bit.

That sounded filthy. My bad.
