Random Tidbits

A lot of small, inconsequential things happened this week.  They aren't worthy of a stand alone post on their own.  I'll just list them for you in no particular order.

1.  I ventured off the couch for the first time all week yesterday.  (That's not the interesting part, I promise.)  I'm still coughing a lot and I have almost no voice to speak of.  My retrievers needed food so I stopped into our local pet store.  When I went to pay, a very good looking, probably 18 year old, male was working the register.  He tried to strike up a conversation and I apologized for my laryngitis.  (Meaning … please, let's not make idle chit chat, ok?)  

After hearing my apology he became extremely attentive and much to my frustration, he continued to ask me nonstop questions.  I tried to rasp out polite answers.  As I was leaving he said, "I hope you feel better and I just have to tell you, your voice is the sexiest thing I've ever heard."

Yes, he did.  My voice sounds like a chain smoking bulldog.  It just goes to show, anything is sexy to an 18 year old male. 

2.  Three separate men approached me while I read my Kindle at the Money Town car wash to ask me questions about it.  I think they were all considering it as a possible gift for their significant other.  I've heard Kindles are already sold out for Christmas, although there's a waiting list you can get on.  Yes, I still love mine.  I was surprised at all the commotion a Kindle created during such a brief stop.  

3.  I just found out some interesting people are reading Twenty Four At Heart.  One is an actor.  I guess that's not a big deal.  Half the population of Southern California claims to be an actor.  He sort of actually works though.  Also, I've had some political types reading and admitting it. They should leave now.  It could probably end their career if anyone finds out they've read a website that talks about sex toys, fake orgasms and/or some of the other topics we've covered here.  I'm not the one to look to "to get a good feel for the pulse of Orange County."  Really, save your career … run!

4.  One of my friends brought up the TV show, The Real Housewives of Orange County to me this week.  As in, "Well, of course you watch Housewives …blah, blah, blah."  I confessed I do NOT watch the show.  I instantly felt guilty.  How can I write a website poking fun at The OC if I refuse to watch Housewives?  I decided to remedy the situation and went online to watch the season premiere.

I made it halfway through before my connection got dropped.  I didn't bother trying to reconnect.  I was right at the part where one of the women claimed to have real boobs. No one believed her "because no one in Orange County has real anything, let alone boobs." (That quote is from memory … so don't quote me on my quote!)  The women began feeling each other's breasts to see which fake boobs felt the most real.  Apparently if you pay more, you can get boobs that feel more real-ish.

I wouldn't know.  I have real boobs and I live in Orange County.  There – I've said it out loud.  In fact, I only live a couple blocks from some of these women.  I think we should be introduced and if they feel the need to check out my (big) real boobs, so be it.  

Can I just say for the record, most people in Orange County are nothing like these women. Can I also say, there are a good number of women in Orange County exactly like them.  

5.  I overheard an interesting conversation while at the Money Town car wash. I walked through the indoor waiting area to pay.  As I walked by, a man in his mid-twenties said into his cell phone (quite loudly and in an exasperated tone), "All you really care about is how big my dick is."  

Well, okay then ….

    What a hilarious and very plastic place you live. Makes for great blog fodder though… Sounds like Scottsdale, Arizona. How many plastic items will my plastic credit card buy me. Hope you’re feeling well soon.

    Ugh, I’ve told him over and over again not to talk so loud on the phone when he’s in public.
    I’m amazed that you are so “normal” living where you do. Go track down some Housewives and let them feel your (big) boobs…then go talk to the 18 yr old again.

    Hey, I used to be married to an “actor” (oh the stories behind THAT one) – does that make me on of your “interesting” readers?
    #5 cracked me up; I would have been sorely tempted to walk by and casually say “I’ve heard Enzyte is effective…”

    would most guys rather be good looking with a small dick or ugly with a big one?
    oh, these age old questions…

    1. A little Kim Carnes is always sexy! Even if the 18 yo doesn’t know who she is. Check my blog to see what happened to me when I went to the pet food store! Glad your feeling better.
    2. Well at least those guys are thinking. Maybe not far enough in advance but they’re thinking. Hopefully they will order a Kindle and give the wife a certificate that says it’s in the mail and not buy them a stupid fuzzy blue bathrobe (ala Cookie Monster) instead.
    3. Well! How cool is that? Someone else in the OC trying to keep it real.
    4. I’m with you on this one. I don’t watch Housewives or any other reality show. I like my own little world.
    5. snicker – Well, he probably saw a pretty blond w/real (big) boobs walking his way and thought you might be interested in his um, package.

    Oh man, #1 and #5 just made my day!
    Actors and politicians? Well, okay, actors are fine, but shouldn’t politicians be, like, busy saving the world? Or at least their jurisdiction?

    Boobs, dicks, sexy voices, famous people reading your blog…. I have to say that for a SAHM your life is so much more interesting than any I’ve ever known. Woohoo.
    Women are totally interested in other women’s boobs.
    When my one girl friend had her boob job years ago she took off her shirt and showed my roommates and I since, of course, we were interested. Then my hair “designer” (as they’re called) recently had a corrective surgery (5th one) on her long time fake boobs and told me to feel how soft the one (which was previously hard) was now, by leaning over as I was sitting under the dryer. I did in fact push on the bare skin to feel how soft it was. It was soft.

    Okay if guys get to be all about wanting to see two women doing each other, then I am coming out and saying what every woman thinks, despite what we might say: Size. Matters. Oh yes it does. And you know what? You can always put a bag on the guy’s head. Er, the big head; you know the one between his shoulders that stops functioning properly when the blood rushes to the other head. Am I right? LOL
    And how bad is it that every time I hear the word “shrinkage” all I can think of is a Seinfeld episode???

    Is it bad that as soon as I saw “Random” in the post I was like YAY, another random post! (Everybody I read has been random/miscellany/forgive my ADD tonight.) I love it. Guess that proves that my doctor was right with his ADD diagnosis?
    Obviously guy in numero 5 is small? Because were he big, he wouldn’t care? That’s just a weird thing to hear…in public anyways. You make me want to visit. It’d be like visiting a foreign country for me 🙂

    I am glad you are feeling better!
    And I must say that I LOVE that an 18 year old called your ANYTHING sexy! I think I would have taken that as a massive compliment (even if an 18 year old will hump anything).
    I am paying it forward this week and hosting my very first contest 🙂 Stop by if you get a chance!

    You have an actor reading your blog? How cool! Is he stalking you yet? Or are you supposed to stalk him. I forget how that works. (I’m kidding)
    I want to know more about your Kindle. Do you read books on it? NY Times? Do you prefer it to paper books?
