Going Nuts for a Meal of Oats

~Well everyone’s got something on their mind, and this is my thought at this present time.  I’m gonna say what I want, it might not be what you want to hear.~  This is a very random blog, but I make no apologies because this is, after all, Randomness!  So I will dive right in.  Back in the early days when Randomness! was first in existence, I had no trouble with the location of one of my favorite breakfast foods in the cereal aisle at the store.  Quaker Oatmeal to Go…has anyone seen or heard of it lately?  I think it may have experienced a discontinuation, so putting “to go” in the product’s name was most appropriate indeed.  Of course, there are comparable items to be purchased as far as breakfast bars are concerned, but they’re just not the same!  When I find an item of high satisfaction, it really bothers me when it is no longer available for consumption.  Continue reading “Going Nuts for a Meal of Oats”

From a Grammatical Sabbatical Into a Whole New World

Today commemorates the 10th birthday of Randomness!  My baby is growing up so quickly!  Who would have thought she would transform from an exclusive virtual magazine in a physical basement into a tidy blog spot on the wonderful world wide web for anyone to discover?  A whole new world has opened up for her…what a radical revolution!  Time is a comical concept.  Of course, we must factor in that indefinite sabbatical between Randomness!’s past and present, where virtually nothing was happening grammatically.  And we’re actually okay with that reality.  Life can be complex and confusing.  Sometimes it’s critical to check into a hibernation station on one’s favorite imaginary tropical island to ponder life before one can truly flourish and thrive.  The therapeutic results can be astronomical.  Continue reading “From a Grammatical Sabbatical Into a Whole New World”

Twas the Night Before Christmas…at My House

Twas the night before Christmas when all through the basement,
Not a creature was stirring, nor making a statement.
The stockings were hung by the piano with joy,
In hopes that ol’ Santy Claus soon would bring toys.
The children were nestled all snug in their sleeping bags,
While visions of Buddy the Elf eating syrup spaghetti made them all gag.
And the girls in their red nightrobes and the parents in theirs of blue,
Had just settled their brains for a short Christmas snooze.
When out on the lawn there arose a cry from the pups,
I sprang from the bag to see what was up. Continue reading “Twas the Night Before Christmas…at My House”

The Lost and Found World of Randomness!

“Randomness!” is on the loose!  I’m not sure where it went!  It seems I have been wandering aimlessly.  If you are new to this Wonderful World of Randomness!…greetings!  And if not…you have probably noticed that it has been YEARS since you’ve heard any of the thoughts swirling around the place my mind resides, known as Wonderland.  How ridiculous this is!  How absurd!  But!  I have had little time and few inspirations.  However, I realize that this is a poor excuse, and seeing as how I claim to be rich in words, I feel as if I have been robbing you of your “Canton Joy!” and laughter.  It’s like I’ve been searching for the lost city of Atlantis (only this is the lost world of “Randomness!”), and I am finally making my way back home.   Continue reading “The Lost and Found World of Randomness!”
