WTF Wednesday – Frogs and Snakes and Whoomp there it is!

In Florida it rains often. In fact, in the summer months, it could rain at any moment, last for 15 minutes, and then the sun comes out again, bright and hot. It’s humid and tropical and the perfect climate for all sorts of critters. Like this one…

pond frog
That was taken beside the small pond in my yard, the one beside my back door. It’s loaded with frogs, even tree frogs. When we first put the pond in I planted all kinds of elephant ears, plumeria, crotons and some potho’s for ground cover. I wanted it to look tropical. It does. It also grows like crazy and is a constant pain in my ass. I am forever trimming something but I love that pond and the tropical lush forest I’ve created.

Know who else loves it? I mean besides my frog friends….

Black Racer Snake
Black Racers.

Black Racers are non-poisonous and actually helpful because they eat rats, other snakes, insects, and unfortunately, they also eat frogs. I’ve been told they are not really aggressive and run away if you come near them. Well, that’s not true. I tried to move one of those boogers away from the door with a rake and it sort of reared back and lunged toward me. It scared the bejesus out of me.

Know what else?

They do bite. And I know this for sure. Because I googled it. Google knows everything. I love you Google, I really do. If you ever want to find out about someone, the best place to look would be their Google searches.

Say what you want but this show trumps the Real Fake Housewives anyday!

I’m just sayin.

For the past year, my favorite shorts have been the Brooks Pure Project 3.5” Shorts. They’re very comfortable, and I seriously love any running shorts with pockets in them, that’s a major bonus. I also have a Brooks running skirt that I love, but for running, it’s these shorts.

Brooks Pure Project shortsI even wear them when we go to garage sales because, again pockets!

But at 75 bucks a pair, I only had one pair for a really long time. Too rich for my cheap blood. I got a second pair on sale for around 50 bucks last month but just this week the best thing ever happened, the value God’s smiled down upon me.

I got the 3 pairs you see above for $26.99 each!

That's totally my happy dance...except Cameron does it a little better than I do.

I love you!

There is nothing better than finding your favorite running gear on sale! You know what would be better though? If I could actually run right now!

In other news, MacGyver and I went to the weigh and pay last week. We wanted to show my BIL what it’s all about. Everyone found some decent things but MacGyver had perhaps the best find of all time because MacGyver found…..

An iPod! A classic iPod loaded with music.

Ipod with music

We brought it home and charged it and I put it in my computer and pulled up the files and opened up the pictures on it. I really, really wanted to save them and show them to you but MacGyver said it wouldn’t be a good thing to post pictures of actual surgeries and open wounds on a public blog. How did he know those were the ones I wanted to share?

So, he basically ruined it for you and now I have no pictures of actual intestines to show you. But I’ve seen them and they’re pretty awesome. Who knew surgeons actually took pictures for their iPods? Interesting.

Anyway, because the screen doesn’t light up, we put the iPod in my car so that we could see the names of the songs as we listened to them and I have been forever damaged.

Remember how I said you can find out a lot about people based on their Google searches? Well, the same can be said about their choices in music! I will never in my life be able to have surgery without the imagery of my surgeon singing the absolute worst of Nickelback followed by the 1993 Billboard Hot 100 song by Tag Team, “Whoomp, there it is”.

EEEEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWWW! I will never be the same.

That’s it. That’s all I got. I need to get to work and I’ve got to do some Google Searches research.

Bye FeliciaHave you ever looked at anyone’s music and completely changed your opinion about them?

  1. Loved the frog post! Had a tree frog in the overflow of my (upstairs)bathroom sink for 3 days before my husband finally caught him…it made brushing my teeth a real adventure!

  2. Music is an interesting thing. You can never tell what kind someone likes just by looking at them. I’m sure people look at me and think, that girl probably only listens to Christian gospel music… although I do love me some gospel, I also love Katy Perry’s Roar while I’m finishing up a good run! I like country, folk, pop and even rock. Just depends on my mood and the words to the song.
    Speaking of frogs, we’ve been getting at least three in our living room every day! I really hate the things but I’m just glad they’re tiny.. they must be coming in under the screen door..

    • That is so funny. We had them on our lanai, the tiny ones. They actually came from a planter! I have no idea how they got in there. It gave the dogs hours of entertainment though, 🙂

        • I’ve seen them at some of the expo’s but I’ve never really taken a close look. I definitely like paying 26.99 over 75 or even 50 any day though so has sort of become my go to for running clothes lately. 🙂 They usually have all the stuff I like but for a lot less.

          • I have 2 pair of Brooks shorts, but a different style. The first pair I found at Marshalls and the 2nd were a gift.

            Of course, I haven’t seen any more Brooks at Marshalls lol

          • LOL, that’s the problem with discount stores, they only have a few and only occasionally but if you can find something, it’s usually a great deal. 🙂

    • Awe, thank you, I’m always afraid to hit publish because I tend to just put it all out there, hehe. Those were honestly the best pictures I’ve ever seen. But then again, I kind of have a knack for gross and disgusting. 😉

  3. Things have finally slowed down enough at work to post back on your blog again. YAY!! I missed it.

    As for music changing my thoughts on a person… I have everything from Sinatra to Eminem on my playlist. LOL

    Keep up the fun posts.

  4. My opinion does not change based on music as much as Facebook posts (especially when it comes to politics). I feel bad, but yes, I (silently) judge….

    • Don’t we all 😉 And sometimes facebook posts send me into a rage. I especially hate when people fly off on a tangent about very personal things and then after a gazillion people comment, they delete the post, ugh!
