Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Reasons North Carolina Has The Most Insane Weather
1. This past Sunday it was 75 degrees here in North Carolina
2. Meaning it was sunny, warm, just a slight breeze
3. Kind of like a spring day
4. Instead of a mid-January day
5. We wore flip-flops for crying out loud
6. Monday was only slightly cooler
7. And Tuesday was a bit cooler still, and the slight breeze turned into a stronger wind
8. Yesterday Charlie Chill hit the air in full force
9. It barely got to the 40's
10. This morning I woke up, and it was snowing
11. Yes, I said snowing, the ground is covered
12. I like snow, but this is the weirdest week ever
13. From flip-flops on Sunday to heavy coat and snow boots on Wednesday
Yep, NC has the weirdest weather ever!!

She Lost Her Car Again

Don't you just love infomercials? Those great extremely long commercials that tell us about the great new products that have been invented?
I spent a lot of time watching TV over the last two weeks because I've been sick. And I spent a lot of time at my parent's house, so I watched a lot of TV with my dad. My dad HATES infomercials. Basically because most products out there really didn't require much brain power to invent and are pretty much pointless, but tons of people are willing to pay the obligatory $19.95 to have the "new, amazing" product rushed to their homes.
For example, there is a new product out there called "My Lil Reminder". This is simply a digital recorder that will record a short message to remind you about things you may forget. For example, on the commercial the lady can't remember where she parked her car, but the "Lil Reminder" changed her life by helping her remember that she parked in blue section, row 18.
This infomercial is particularly annoying, and everytime it came on dad would groan, "That old lady lost her car AGAIN." Made for a lot of laughs.
Are there any really annoying commercials that you hate?

And I Thought Knee Highs Were for Old Ladies

Yesterday my niece came home from church with my parents. I've been at my parents house since Thursday because I've had the flu. So it was nice to have her come see me since I've been laying around doing nothing.
If laughter could cure the flu, I'd be fully recovered by now, just let me tell you because she had me in stitches the whole afternoon with her antics.
But she topped it all off when she put on a pair of my mom's knee highs that she found and started prancing around the living room in them. She thought she was the stuff. I laughed like crazy at her. I guess maybe knee highs aren't just for old ladies....
