a jumble of Thursday thoughts

I don't want to sound overly presumptuous, but is it too much to ask that all the electrical outlets in my house work? I'm particularly thinking of the outlets in the kitchen that refuse to cooperate and charge the ipad. How can I play my midnight game of Scrabble if I can't charge the ipad? How can I beat the ipad if it's dead? If it's dead how can I charge it when the outlets don't work? It's really becoming a vicious cycle. 

I like most holidays and am always open to a reason to decorate/celebrate accordingly. I plan on dressing Sesame in holiday appropriate outfits as much as possible. That being said, St. Patrick's Day does NOTHING for me. Why does everyone and their mother all the sudden pretend they're Irish for that one day only? Where's the holiday where we all celebrate Italians and Portuguese? I really don't get it. I was under the impression I was all of 4 drops Irish which I don't feel is enough to celebrate, but Dad reminded me his grandfather came over from Ireland so that makes me what, 1/8 Irish? Maybe? More 4 than drops. For the record, I have nothing against the Irish. God bless the Irish and the fact that their holiday makes corned beef go on sale.

Speaking of corned beef, I had to visit the commissary yesterday which everyone who's associated with the military knows is basically tied with Christmas for being the best time of the year. I went during what I have narrowed down to the As Golden As It's Going to Get Hour and it was surprisingly calm. Except that someone moved all the gluten free products across the aisle from the pads, the shampoo across from the ice cream and the bread was nowhere to be seen. Possibly a first world problem but I live in a first world country and I wouldn't mind being given a map when the layout of the store changes.

I'm debating growing my bangs out again. This debate has gone on for the last 12 years and frankly I don't see it ending before I die. 

The biggest drama since it snowed 2'' is about to hit Fort Campbell. The tv show Nashville is coming to film an episode on post. Guess who's planning on being their next big star.
I'll be the only one who doesn't look like my life is being ruined by fame and fortune.
Besides the international recognition I'm sure to receive, the hair and makeup team I'll be given will probably solve my bang dilemma.

I'm Irish and I don't celebrate it, just doesn't appeal to me. Proud of my heritage everyday.

I am with you 100% on St. Patrick's Day! I'm about the same amount Irish as you are, and yet I could not care any less about it. I was out and about on Saturday, and everyone was decked in green and celebrating. I DON'T UNDERSTAND. Maybe it's just because I lack a fascination of green beer.

That sounds like the most nonsensical grocery layout I've ever heard! I don't think Kroger has changed the layout in the few years I've been going, but if they do, you can expect me to have a meltdown in aisle 5.
