Things that make you go hmmm… Monday Listicles

It’s Monday, and I just couldn’t resist Stasha’s listicle this week, courtesy of Erin, one half of the Sisterhood of Sensible Moms (the other half is Ellen): ten things that make you go hmmmm… Go check out the post in which she announces the topic, there’s video, and though she said not to watch it, or rather, because she said not to watch it, I did, and guess what I’ve been humming all day now? Thanks Erin, I’m stuck in the nineties and it’s my own damn fault!

So 10 things that make me go hmmmm…

1. the dog stroller. Really?

2. old ladies with pink hair. Why?

3. a child’s inability to understand the word no, despite the fact that for many of them it’s the first word said.

4. men driving fiat 500s. Don’t they want to have sex?

5. thongs. If I’m wearing panties, I’m wearing panties, if you definitely can’t see a panty line chances are I’m not wearing any, it just feels more honest this way.

6. vanilla ice cream with lots of hershey’s syrup. Hhhhhmmmmmm

7. a cold coke on a hot day.

8. Fifty Shades. I read all three, I simply cannot tear myself away from a series; I hated every one, whilst simultaneously desperately lusting after Christian Grey and wanting to stab him repeatedly (and not in a sexy s&m way). They are really, really bad, don’t read them. (if I’ve offended you with this opinion I have a review coming up that explains my sentiments)

9. my bed. It’s my haven, it’s perfect, I never want to leave it.

10. Ryan Gosling. He actually makes me go hmm, hmmm, hmmmm

Now, if only I could get that damn song out of my head!

  1. You made me snort! I love this list and I did the same thing with 50 Shades!! Why on earth are women losing their everloving minds to this series??? As for the song, well, you were warned, but you are a girl after my own heart. If someone told me not to, I totally would. Great list! Erin

  2. Kill me now, but I like thongs, and I must add the disclaimer, I am nowhere near a 20-something 110 waif. The Hanky Panky original ones are fabulously comfortable!
    I refuse to give in to the 50 Shades fluff!

    • Unfortunately I’m a bikini brief type, much to my mother’s dismay. She insists they look like granny panties, but I’ve never managed to get used to thongs, I get all fidgety and unladylike trying to pull them out of my rear. Not pretty.

  3. Visiting from “Listicles”….thanks sooo much for the morning laughs! Men driving those Fiat 500’s, I think it is natures survival of the fittest at work here…and they are the one’s being weeded out 🙂

  4. You killed me with 3 and 4! And you know with the pink hair? My MIL was a bottle blonde, but is now gray/white so now instead of bleaching to get blonde, she colors. I think the dye is reacting to the iron in her water because now her hair is apricot. Like a poodle’s. Ellen

  5. —I hated every one, whilst simultaneously desperately lusting after Christian Grey and wanting to stab him repeatedly (and not in a sexy s&m way)—.

    Fabulous stuff! HaaHaa
    thanks for the giggle.

  6. I love that hmmm was alternately good and bad. Ryan Gosling – I don’t see it. I don’t see it at all. So I say hmmmm for a different reason. Shades…I refuse to read any of them. I’m standing my ground and saying NO like a 2-year-old.

    • I can’t tell if it’s some sort of transference for people who’d like kids, or if the dogs are just insanely lazy, or what… I just know I couldn’t wait to get rid of the stroller for my children, such a hassle!

  7. I don’t get the dog stroller either. I hate people who insist on taking their dogs everywhere. Seriously, if he can’t go on the walk with you and actually walk – leave him at home.

    Also, Ryan Gossling? Yes, please.

    • Your comment just brought up one of those repressed memories…. my mom used to walk our cat in the yard for a few days whenever we’d move so he could get comfortable with his surroundings and not get lost… I always thought that was a bit humiliating for our poor cat!
