Friday Fragments

I must have upgraded my brain, the past few nights I have been dreaming in HD.  Now, this wouldn't be so much of a problem if I was dreaming about watching something fun and maybe even a little naughty but I have been dreamin' more in the Alfred Hitchcock and Edgar Allen Poe realms.  Just like my computer, can I go back to the previous version?

I graded term papers last week and for some reason citing seems to be out of fashion.  I am not even picky about which style you use, APA or MLA, I just want to know where you got for information from.  This is stuff my middle school child is doing, so I don't buy the we never been taught this excuse.  Grrrrrr!

A sad day has occurred.  My five year old has discovered Barney and likes it.  What did I do to deserve this?

Every year my wife and daughter go out a midnight for black Friday shopping.  I do not myself get it but it is one of the things they share in common so it can not be all bad I guess.  Then again, why couldn't they share a love of cleaning?

Thanks to Mrs. 4444's and her blog Half-Past Kissin' Time for hosting Friday Fragments!  Click on the button below to see more!

Mommy's Idea


  1. I really wish someone in my family enjoyed cleaning.

    I love that you go out with your family for shopping. My husband would NEVER do that. Thankfully, he has other very redeeming qualities :)

    There is really no excuse, today, for not citing sources; there are so many tools for doing so with ease. Maybe you'll have to teach it. grrrr

    Thanks for linking up. Have fun this weekend!

  2. Oh dear.. I'm sorry that your child has discovered Barney. I was once a Barney fan.. what was I thinking?
    It would be fun to go out midnight shopping, but we don't do it like that here.

  3. so agravating about not using citing I know they did not really teach that to my teens in hs so when they entered college I had to help them learn it come see me at

  4. Barney gave me time to take a shower when my middle son was young! :D

  5. Barney was banned in my house, so my neighbors used to secretly let my kids watch it at their house!

  6. Black Friday shopping and cleaning cute comment.


  7. Oh no! Not Barney!! I still have Barney songs running through my brain every so often from when my 19 year old was his biggest fan.

  8. I swear a full semester in college was devoted to proper citation. Okay, maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but it sure felt like it. At some point in the following 7 years things changed because when I returned to school (I had a bit of lapse between my junior and senior years) nobody gave a damn. That was a while ago, so maybe things have changed again?

  9. The Barney comment sounds like bragging to me only because my 3 year old already loves him. I have to say I don't hate him anymore. Ugh! I can't believe I just admitted that.
