Three things that have absolutely nothing to do with each other

1) My son had to select a career with a science background to research and present to his class. What to choose? Since he loves CSI shows, he thought something in forensic science or possibly criminology might be good. Then I reminded him that not long ago he’d mentioned he might want to be a doctor, and he perked up. “Oh, yeah! That would be a good one,” he said. “What’s it called? A brainiologist?” Uhhhh. “A neurologist?” I offered. A moment of awkward silence passed. He chose crime scene analyst.

B) Weirdest product I think I’ve ever seen in a catalog: Scentology fragrances. Three types: Crave, Endurance and Bliss. Apparently one controls your urge to eat carbs, the others help with energy and mood. I’m embarrassed to admit now, but when I first saw these advertised, I thought they were Scientology fragrances. I immediately thought that Southern Baptists should put out: Wallflower, Teetotaler, and Shucks. These would control your urge to dance, drink and swear.

III) I made a new year’s resolution to keep a cleaner house, and I’m bragging a bit here but—it is looking a lot better. Doesn’t hurt that I also hired a housekeeper to come twice a month. Love you, Marisol! I didn’t say how it was going to get accomplished, but it does feel good to have kept one resolution and it’s already February.

Have a great weekend. Go Giants! Go Patriots! Go Superbowl advertisers! (By the way, this is my 50th post! Thanks for hanging in there with me.)

When I first read the word, I thought it was Scientology also. You know me, the world doesn't need any more scents. In fact, a few less would be really nice.

Why wouldn't we hang in there, your posts are always fun!

Congrats on your 50th post! I have enjoyed reading every one of them. You have made me laugh out loud more than once. Thanks for the laughs!

I'd like to volunteer my house to help you keep that resolution. At your disposal. I'll leave a key for you if you like.

Congrats Lala! Now, if you would post everyday you would reach 100 (or pretty close to it)before I see you in March. It would also keep me happy, I miss reading your blog when you don't post!
