Random Thoughts, Part 257

This just popped up while I was prowling the internet:


Also, I think a more accurate description is “disturbing hoodie.” Yet, I am still kinda sorta thinking that it has family holiday card potential….

I made the mistake of not fast-forwarding through the commercials while watching the “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert” and a commercial came on for a new medication and it had a jingle and the lyrics were to the The Jackson 5 song “ABC” and now I have “Trelegy, easy as 123…” stuck in my head in an endless loop.


In a not-so-random connection, have you noticed how pretty drug names are becoming? It wouldn’t surprise me if Hollywood picks up on that and soon there will be a whole new crop of celeb offspring with names like Trelegy and Stelara, which is the much lovelier brand name for ustekinumab, which could catch on in Germany. I do hope those A-list actors do a little research, though, and consider the side effects because poor little Olestra probably never lived down all the teasing that her namesake fat substitute caused gas with oily discharge.

Once upon a time, I used to flip through the fall fashion magazines and then try to find the wondrous clothes inside — on eBay five years later at prices I could afford. These days I’m drawn to stuff like this, with the description: “They’re tailored and structured enough to wear out or to the office, but made with such cozy cotton fleece you can wear them straight to bed.”

Also on a related note (maybe I need to rename this post since it’s not quite so random and disconnected after all), I keep having these incredibly pedestrian dreams.* One I remember vividly is that I’m vigorously brushing my teeth only to discover —  it’s not my toothbrush. I’m not sure what this means.

RIP, Stan Lee. My husband had to explain all the “excelsior” references I kept seeing on social media because I am not a nerd who read comics. For all you other cool kids out there, it was Lee’s way of signing off on a monthly column he wrote. You know that’s going on his tombstone, which makes me feel lame because I don’t have a catchphrase and all I can come up with is “Life is short, take the trip, buy the shoes, eat the cake.” Which I just saw on a t-shirt. Still, it is a good way to live.

* Good band name
