Random Monday

20120702-022622.jpg

It’s Monday, and I’m at work feeling really random with some spare time to write a quick post.

We spent the weekend in purgatory. Seriously, with temps in the 100s Friday Saturday and Sunday, no one wanted to do anything! But for some strange reason, CDub decided to grill on Sunday….when it was 102 degrees. And Pookah wanted to sit outside with him. SMH. They both crazy.

I took Pookah to get shoes on Saturday because he had one pair that he was wearing out. I mean seriously, there were strings hanging off and pieces coming off. So, we took the journey to the one of the few places that still has a stride rite to get him another pair of tennis shoes and sandals. We got there and a really nice guy helped us out. I mean, he knew exactly what Pookah needed for those 10 extra wides he is sporting. And when I was checking out, I was giving him my name and zip code and he stopped and said wait: aren’t you on twitter? He looked a Pookah and said, OH YEAH!! POOKAH!!! LOL Turns out, he follows me on twitter AND we know some of the same folks IRL including his wife! LOL. He gave me the hookup! I spent about HALF of what I was supposed to spend. All because of the power of SOCIAL NETWORKING folks!

I want an iMac. I was in Best Buy on Saturday night after our quarterly trip to Golden Corral( dont judge) and the beauty of that 27 inch screen had me plotting when I could make that purchase…

I was in Best Buy looking for Season 2 of Downton Abby. LOVE THIS SHOW!!! I’m going to have to go to Target today and get it!

I missed the BET awards, but twitter kept me well informed. I know to wait until the last few minutes to catch the Whitney tribute!

18 days till beach getaway! I still need to find a bathing suit.

And 30 days until Blogher!! I’m getting excited!! I can’t wait to meet some of you all!

I picked up my camera again! And started putting some of the things I learned in the class to use. With my new lens of course. I love that thing. Don’t know why I resisted. But I do need something wider for the house…..

To that end, I am REALLY going to participate in #photoofthedayJuly!

    Social networking is great, I’ve met some wonderful people. I have a iMac. Love, love love it. It took about 2 months to get used to it. I have the 27 inch too. I want a Nikon or Cannon and classes. I appreciate great photography. I’m random today as you can tell too.

    This weekend was out of this world hot. If it were not for the kids, I would have spent our beach getaway in the hotel suite under the cool air.

    I’ve been dying to buy a MacBook Pro but the hubs is blocking me. How rude is that… LOL?’ I’m sure he’d just flatline if I said anything about the iMac.

    Hugs and Mocha,

    too funny that he recognized Pookah! Pookah is a super star and he don’t even know it! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Isn’t blogging and social media great! Especially when you get the hook up as a result! I agree that your boys were crazy for being out in this heat this weekend. I am assuming you stayed indoors. And don’t get me started on all these Apple products…I want them all!

    Woot for the hook up!

    I can’t wait for BlogHer either. I can’t believe its so close. I’m pretty sure if I wasn’t going at this point I would be hating…like I was last year.

    I want an iMac too. Hopefully Santa will be nice.
