Friday Fragments?

Friday Fragments are bits and pieces of your week that are usually brief; too short for a stand-alone post, but too good to discard. Collect humorous observations, "Heard" items, and other small gems and put them together in a Friday Fragments post.

***** Driving Miss Ash to school in the 45 mph zone doing 50 I get passed by 3 cars, all of which are High school students. The last one to pass me actually caused the oncoming traffic to stop so that he did not cause a head-on collision. My speeding is not the point here LOL. (AND I was passed by 3 cars) And we will ignore the inner rage i felt compelled to follow the 16 year old to school and beat up in front of his friends, this topped off by my next stop being the dreaded "drop-off loop" THIS my friends.... started by morning.

***** As my daughter was cleaning out her backpack this week, I noted her pencil bag contained about 15 green markers. yes...ONLY green. Her favorite color. She borrowed them apparently. Yeah. After learning she "borrowed" them from the teacher... we have a FUN week ahead and Spring break return of grounding and lessons... JOY. AND 15 GREEN MARKERS? Am I the only one who is just questioning this choice besides the joy of parenting a child on the lessons of taking things? OY VEY!

***** The economy sucks. Everyone's losing their homes, jobs etc etc. The boyfriend suggests we should start buying properties and selling them. Ummmm....

***** NEIGHBOR UPDATE We now have the barking dog... a new chihuahua and the new chihuahua's SISTER! (Oh and the vinegar in candles worked, hehehehe, my floating votives have been floating for a week now)

***** Yeah, I'm too nice. Let me start off saying this first but yeah... I have a cell phone plan and nicely enough since they have years of contracts, my EX, my daughter's Dad has one on my plan still, Since my bill jumped 200 bucks, I obviousally inquired WHY, and was notified of the international calls to NIGERIA from his number. Upon inquiring... He "met" a girl on "Myspace" whom he called. BUT said was local. I guess the 14-17 digit number didn't tip him off. His "barely speaking English, 12 minute, 220 dollar conversation he paid me for" which gave me the HUGE chance for ... I got to say... "I hope you enjoyed", really, and I mean REALLY made my day. Any other questions as to why I am divorced from this man?


  1. okay well I can so understand the green is my fav color

    loved your FF

  2. He sounds like an idiot. Man!

    As a teacher who has a box full of GREEN markers because I am sick and tired of kids stealing my blue ones (green is more rare, so I know when it's mine now!), I say, "GIMME back my markers, KID!" This is a great time of year to give a teacher pencils. Why not have her give the markers back, along with a nice supply of pencils to atone? :)

  3. I love this idea of Friday Fragments. Can I steal? I could even do Tuesday Tidbits, Wednesday Wanderings, or Monday Musings. Your daughter is capital Adorable. I'm adding you to my blogroll, sorry to not have done so sooner.

  4. wow sounds like the ex was a little to caught up in his romance to think straight.... glad it made your day (and that he paid you back!). Thanks for stopping by my blog, I'll add you to my blogroll fellow Michigander!

  5. And he is still on your phone plan, why?
