Along Abbey Road | A Lifestyle And Family Blog : A Random Thing Or Two-sday

3.27.2012

A Random Thing Or Two-sday


1) Alex Trebek's brain must be loaded with all kinds of trivia genius by now. I wonder how he'd fare as a contestant on Jeopardy? I'm writing to ABC and requesting they give him a break from hosting so he can show us them brainiac skillz.

2) My most recent fickle obsession is spelling everything with a 'z' instead of an 's' for things that usually end in 's'. Does that make sense? Like the aforementioned skillz of Alex Trebek.  For realz.

3) Clockwork Orange is quite the disturbing read, yet I feel an overwhelming desire to finish it, no matter how terrifying it gets. The supposed redeeming 21st chapter that was thrown to the wayside in America for so long is the bait that is keeping me hooked. I'm dying to know how it ends, but overall I just want to tolcholk those nadsats in the listo.

4)  Learning how to speak a second language helps protect against age-related memory loss (source). Considering that my memory has been shot to Hades since having a baby, it's about time I start learning French so I can sing alone with my favorite French song and actually know what I'm saying.

5) I am going to do us all a favor and show you how to leave a proper hyperlink to your blog when leaving a comment. People will be 263 times more likely to visit if it's a click away instead of having to copy and paste it into their browser (which is possibly the most annoying thing in the world to do). Keep a copy of the code in your desktop files or some place where you can easily copy and paste.

Here is the code:

<a href="YOUR BLOG ADDRESS HERE">YOUR BLOG NAME HERE</a>

Boom. Done. You're welcome.

6) Here is the winner of the DownEast Basics giveaway! Email me at rodriguez.abbey@gmail.com to claim your cute item from their store!

I love your random thing or two-days. They always crack me up. And seriously, what is up with the memory loss that comes with babies? I had my babe in May and I feel like I've regressed to a cavewoman.
