A Random Thing Or Two-sday

This is what we call the "progression face"...you should totally try it
I am officially deeming Tuesdays on the blog a "A Random Thing Or Two-sday".

Together we are going to learn awesome factoids, secrets, reveal the inner workings of my complicated brain, increase our vocabulary, and possibly discover the cure to something. Anything could happen. 

1) Every time I drive and read the road signs on the actual road, I still read them top to bottom. IE: the carpool lane. It reads like this:


(remember, we are driving ⇧)

The intended approach to reading it would be "car pool only", but I can't for the life of me train my brain to do that, so instead I read it as " only pool car"...


2) Today's dictionary word of the day is...

adventive: not native and usually not yet well established, as exotic plants or animals.

Hmm. Interesting.
3) I think Pinterest needs an app where it formulates all your pins into a book or something. Or at least for the "home" pinboards. I would like it to compile all of the things I would like my house to look like into an actual model home. Wouldn't that be amazing?

4) Guess what? Your turkey will still thoroughly cook if you put it in upside-down. You're probably thinking, "that's nice, but why would I ever do a silly thing like that?" Because, you probably don't have a piece missing like I do. Yes, I admit it. I put our Christmas turkey in upside down, however it turned out nice and moist. Perhaps I discovered the secret to a guaranteed moist turkey! 

5) Did you know the architect (Gustave Eiffel) who built the Eiffel tower was afraid of heights? Ha! Oh, the irony!

If Spencer's doing the cooking, he ALWAYS puts the turkey in upside down. He swears it makes it more moist. So you have a cohort in your theory.

My dad has always put the turkey in upside-down, too... he swears that it really does make it more moist.

OK, this post is funny and timely for me. I recently accidentally cooked a chicken upside- down. No idea how I made that mistake, but it was one of the moistest chickens I have ever made.

I am SO WITH YOU on the reading things top to bottom. It's sooooo aggravating to me! I read it "backwards" and then translate it back around into something that makes sense. Way too much effort while driving.
