    Trinda...mine goes off of yours
    -How come hubby's clothes can't make it to the dirty clothes bag that he passes to go down the hall?
    -Why after taking his work shirt off when he gets home (does have t shirt on & doesn't want dinner on workshirt) does it seem to stay in that same spot until I take it up? (He passes it to go upstairs.)

    The police liking donuts reminds me of Miami Ink last week. A K9 cop had the police badge that represents him & his dog tattooed on him. He said his dog didn't like donuts & the cop said I know a weird cop right?!?

    Today's list :D

    What is that smell?
    Which dog farted?
    Why does the dog look at my like I did it?
    Why do I have clothes in 3 or 4 sizes and they all fit the same body?
    I wonder what I'd get paid if I got paid for everything I do?
    How do kids step over trash on the floor and not see it?
    Why do kids drink all but a tablespoon of juice or milk and put it back in the fridge?
    Why does my husband put an empty cereal box back in the pantry?
    Why do I have so much garbage? :whistle:

    Why is my teenaged daughter not interested in getting a job this summer?
    Why am I looking for a second job this summer?
    How will I survive getting paid once a month from summer school?
    Why does my 11-month-old Pug insist on using my bedroom as his personal bathroom?
    What IS that sound in the dryer - please don't let it be the sound of another service call?!?!?
    When will my QVC order come in, and why can't I track it on the computer, when I have typed in all the right numbers?
    Did I turn off the coffeepot??

    You do realize that if a counsellor were to look at these lists, we would all be diagnosed as OCD or ADD!!

    Why did I try Vista Print?
    What will my next order be?
    Will the kids like the stuff I ordered?
    Will I run out of money b/c of Vista Print?
    Why are they named Vista print?
    What is Vista?
    I wonder how many orders I will end up getting from Vista Print...

    ARGH!!!! Stupid Vista Print!

    scienceteach82, I have all the same questions about Vistaprint, plus...
    Why did I read all the posts on Vista Print in the first place? (which inspired me to try it and place 4 orders in 3 days-delivered to school so DH doesn't find out!)
    Why can't DH put his @#$@#$% dishes in the dishwasher-he (sometimes) brings them to the sink and rinses them, next NATURAL step, put them IN the dishwasher!!!
    Why do I always wake at the same time (4:12) with weird thoughts, which then keep me up til my alarm goes off for work?
    Why don't I get these weird thoughts during the summer when I could actually sleep later and make up for the time lost rolling around trying to solve the world's problems?

    1. Why do I have a Shell gas card in the bathroom? It has been there for two weeks. Why can't I just put it in my purse?

    2. Why does my bf insist on taking off all his clothes (socks included) when he goes to the bathroom? Why does he have to be that odd?

    3. What have I even ordered on VistaPrint? Have I by accident ordered a free magazine from there and will never be able to cancel it?

    4. Why is someone's car alarm going off? It goes off at least every 30 minutes. GET YOUR CAR FIXED!!

    5. Why am I unable to find clothes on sale that fit me? Everyone else gets sale clothes except me. I need sale clothes!

    6. But mostly...why does my bf take off all his clothes!?!?!?! that is odd right?

    I just told my bf I wrote that and he said that people are going to think that it was TMI and that I am a freak for writing it. I promise I am not! It just is what I have been thinking about.

    He also said that he saw a Seinfeld episode where one of the characters acted how he did so it can't be that odd.

    Hahaha....when the seinfeld is your life model, you're in trouble.

    -why is that guy I met at the mall trying to move so fast? Is that an age thing? (He mentioned marriage twice in a thirty minute convo...we met six hours ago)

    -I wonder if I kidnapped a celebrity and left a clone that say said celebrity most famous catchphrase, would the public ever catch on?

    -Would I be weird if I used my TOPT score report as a screen saver (I passed) and a profile pic?

    -When is my diploma going to get here?

    -I wonder if the mail man ever feels like I'm stalking him?

    -Where does all my money go?

    -Why are guys so weird?

    -Why are there only three cherry halves in a can of mixed fruit? Don't they know that's the best part?

    -I wonder what's the penalty for stealing a cop car? What about a fire truck? I think I might like to find out...

    -Why did walmart decide on the slogan "blue light special"? Was it because "red light special" was already taken?

    Why is it that the uglier the picture, the longer you have to keep it? (ie licenses, passports, id badges)

    -I wonder how steady stock in tampons and diapers are? They should always be in demand, right?

    -Why does gas now cost as much as a combo meal per gallon?

    -Why do I always have 42 knives, 15 forks and no spoons when I want to eat a bowl of cereal?

    Good Morning! Here we go again....

    Why is the pancake syrup always out on the table or counter, even when I know we don't have anything for it in the house?

    Does laundry multiply over night?

    Where the heck do the missing socks go?

    Why does my husband always want to go to the zoo (amusement park, outdoor attraction) on the hottest, muggiest day of the year?

    Why did WalMart get rid of layaway? What am I going to do for the kids' school clothes?

    Am I old? When do you officially become old? Am I too old to wear the clothes I like? Am I too old for a tattoo? What tattoo? Where? Will it hurt? Why do I worry about the pain? Am I old?

    Good morning! I'm still stuck on the old thing:

    Why does the service company give a time range ie a repairman will be there between 8 and 12? Can I say that I'll be there between 10 and 11?

    Why do they call it "sowing wild oats"? What are the wild oats? Do I have wild oats? Did I sow them?

    Am I old? Am I weird? It's okay to be different. Are different and weird the same? Is it okay to be weird?

    Why do I own twice as many spoons as any other utensil and still can't find one when I need it?

    Good Morning!

    Why do fat men wear their belts below their bellies? Is fat politically correct? What is the politically correct way to say fat?

    Why do I have so many tubes of lipstick when I use only one? Why do I have 2 or 3 tubes of the same colors? Are they multiplying? If I put a dollar in with the lipsticks, will it multiply too?

    Why did I not get some water when I was downstairs? I am so thirsty! Should I go and get some now?

    Why can't my bf eat anything green? What the heck is wrong with him?!

    Why do I fluctuate from hot to cold every night? Is there something wrong with my hypothalamus?! Who comes up with a word like hypothalamus?? Why is that the only thing I remember from my physiology class in college? Why am I going to be teaching that next school year? I didn't say I could teach that!

    Why does Yahoo lie to me and tell me I have mail...when I really don't?! Why can't it update normally?? It gets me excited...and then I check and nothing is there! Blast!

    Why are the $120 pillows I got from kohl's (I only paid 37 dollars a piece for...sale!!) crappy?? Fluffy down feathers...haha...w/e! Why can't i ever find a good pillow? Is this the reason I am up??

    This is what is bothering me...When a baseball team wins a game they all slap hands with each other as they are coming off the field. They make a line that doubles back on itself so that every player slaps hands with every other player. How do they know when to turn the line?

    ok now I can think of dominate eyes when I see that. It's been bugging me for years.


    I have another question. Why do people use their brakes as turn signals now?

    Good morning!

    Musings for the day: Why does my bassett hound howl along with the fire engine siren? Why is the fire engine turning into our development? Do I smell smoke?

    What is the name of that stinky cheese? Who eats stinky cheese? What does it smell like, feet? Why do they keep making stinky cheese? Why am I even thinking about cheese?:confused:

    they say if you can hear your heart beat when you lay down it's because of high blood pressure.

    Hmm, it could be that you're hearing the blood flow through the tissue that's being compressed by the earplugs. Just a thought.

    Here's something I find really strange - what do some posters get out of slamming other posters?? Why do they do it? What do they get out of it? Do they just look for places to post to cause trouble? Why do they bother??
