Monday Listicles

New week brings a new list.

It also brings us a little closer to summer. After reading your summer memories last week I am all ready for it. Thank you for helping me remember and believe that warm weather is indeed coming. I was also reminded by so many fun things we did as kids during school break and cannot wait to do them with my son.

Today we are writing 10 THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMM. Topic is chosen by Erin and Ellen, The Sensible moms. I was a bit worried I might sound like my grandma complaining, but then I relaxed and thought of the many unanswered questions about life, love and universe and came up with some stuff that I think of daily. Thanks ladies for a fun topic.

Next week I am giving you an allowance of (pretend) $1000 and ask for a list of 10 things you will spend it on. GO!

And now, let’s ponder.

Make a list, check it twice, link it up. Read others. Have fun!





1. People waving me through in a 4 way stop.

2. Surely it costs more then a penny to make a penny?

3. Why do we blink so much?

4. Why are there no B batteries?

5. Why do we all say ATM machine when M stands for machine anyway?

6. What can mosquitos possibly be good for?

7. What do newborns dream about seeing how they have no experiences yet?

8. How come there is no light in the freezer?

9. How come no one except my dog ever listens to me?

10. Did anyone really like the ‘Things that make you go hmm’ song?

      Thank you B. I refrained from googling before I posted cause they would be ponders no more 😉 but you must tell me the answer over a Bailey’s coffee soon!

    Ahhhhhhhh…I get it now! Great list!!!

    My poor old brain was working overtime trying to figure out what that song really meant?!? That was the only thing on my list. LOL!

    Your list was very thought provoking. =D

      I still don’t know what that song was about…Except annoying the heck out of us.

    What a great topic and list! Yes, why aren’t there B batteries (literally my son asked me this today and I couldn’t come up with a good answer for him) and why is there no light in the freezer? Would the lightbulb explode or something? Now I’m going to be thinking about these deep questions the rest of the night. PS – love that picture!

      Thank you Christine. I see your son is one of those… My kid puts me to shame every day. I must google answers for 70% of his questions.

      Right?? What do you think, what can Scrumplet possibly be dreaming about all day?

    beautiful pic of you and I enjoyed the list too!

    I usually say “money machine” but will now try to refer to it to ATM only!

      Thank you. I loved this theme. I used to have many more questions like this but I guess now I just google them as I go 🙂

      Right? Guess we can only eat frozen peas during the day… Or use a flash light to locate Ben and Jerry in the middle of the night. Not me off course…

    Great list! I *think* I might have liked the song, but I was too young to be responsible for my musical tastes.

    Fantastic picture, by the way!

    Great list. However, you’ve often commented on Lil J and his “big thoughts”. I do believe we now know where he gets it from!

    I like this week’s topic. Great take on it, Stasha. In our house we talk about the value of all creatures and how each one is precious and deserving of life (as in, they ought not to be squished or otherwise maimed by certain smallish people)…. Except for mosquitoes. Can’t think of a single redeeming quality. 🙂

    great things to ponder! especially the ATM one….so true.

    as for the “B” batteries….if you have a very old radio, you will need a B battery, except they don’t make them anymore. ATM oddities aside, apparently we did get smarter at technology and the B battery became obsolete.
    Hhhmmmm…now, how the heck did I know that? crazy brain

    Great list and yes, most of these make me go hmmm. I wonder daily what mosquitos are good for other than an aweful lot of scratching. I can’t leave the house right now without a ton of OFF on every exposed surface of skin!!!

    I have never thought about the fact that there is no light in the freezer….I’m thinking it depends on the model. My freezer doesn’t have a light but Irishman’s does. Go figure…

    And I did like that C &C Music factory song *looks over shoulder*

    LOL! In answer to #10, twelve year old me *loved* the “Things That Make You Go Hmmm” song which is good because now it’s going to be in my head allllllll day. ;-P

    Hilarious as always…what about that machine in ATM…redundant, huh?
    Also, just so you know, my freezer does have a light in it (LG in case you ever want to upgrade) but interestingly the light in the fridge burnt out and yes, I probably should replace the bulb.

    About #6: There’s a great quote that suggests, “If you think being small makes you powerless, then you have never been in bed with a mosquito.”

    I still don’t like them, but at least now when I see mosquitoes, I am reminded of my own strength to create changes in the world around me. =)
