RST: Spidey, huggies, Jiffy Lube, pleading for a job, and anti-Walmart


I think Tuesdays are my new favorite days. I think McGriddle Pants is my new favorite person. I think Random Shit Tuesday is my new favorite posting topic.

My randomness...

Please forgive my sporadic posting. I'm currently visiting my sister for a week, where I'm having the unique opportunity to hang out with this guy:

Hanging with Spidey and his little brother is just too much... um... fun. Yeah, that's it. Incidentally, don't ever say the words "crap" and "boob" around a three year old. Not unless you want to hear them repeated back to you 852 times.


♠ Have you seen these yet?

I haven't quite decided how I feel about them. Apparently they originated in Israel in cooperation with Shenkar School Of Fashion & Design. You can read about it here.
All you Mommies out there, feel free to weigh in on this topic. Some say they're fashionable, some say they're trashy. What do you think?


♥ I love Jiffy Lube. Really, I do. I haven't paid full price for an oil change since I moved to my current place of residence. I somehow always manage to get my oil changed on Half-Off Day! Yay! I rule! 

Wait, what? What do you mean there's no such thing as Half-Off Day? 

Now that you mention it, I haven't actually ever seen a sign or anything notifying the public of this great discount day... And I'm not very consistent about the day of the week or date in the month that I get my oil changed...

Whatever. Feminism be damned! I love Half-Off Day at Jiffy Lube!


♦ I need a job. I mean, I really need a job. If anyone knows of anyone looking for a kick-ass art teacher, please, let me know. I can send you my resume. No probs. Really. Please? Help a girl out? Iowa is looking more and more tempting every day. I'd prefer a job close to a large metropolitan area, but at this point, I'll take what I can get. Seriously. Help. Don't hold out on me. If I'm forced to move to Iowa for work, I'm coming after all of you.

I'd even take a position as a nanny. I'm a super kick-ass nanny too. I have references to prove it. I have photos too. Here:

(Obviously not taken on my current visit, but on my last trip to visit over Christmas time)
                                                      
See? This is me making truffles with two of my nephews.* See how clean and neat the kitchen is? See how nicely they're rolling their truffles in the sugar? See how there's no fighting and everyone's getting along? Yeah, I rule!

I've also been known to make breakfast, feed the nephews and entertain them all while prepping for Christmas dinner (while their mommy catches up on her sleep).

Look. I can even make awesome cookies:


See? I rule! So... hire me? Seriously. Please? PLEASE?


★ I hate Walmart. That is all.


Sorry for the very kid-centric RST. I promise to be back to my old ways next week when I'm back on my own, kid-free turf. Hope you all had a great weekend and enjoyed the series finale of LOST as much as I did.

* Resume and references available upon request. I have experience with other peoples kids too, not just my sister's. I have a great amount of patience with crying and sleepless kids. And I'm really good with colicky babies. True story. I also have my own car. I know that's huge with you mommy-type people.
