Random Tuesday Thoughts!

It's Tuesday! Pop on over to Keely's blog and join the fun! Just click the cute little box below.


1. I HATE not having a Dunkin' Donuts around here! They should get rid of the commercials for them in this area since we don't have any. It's like torture!

2. This guy is so unintelligent I don't even have words . . .

3. This Thursday night the ladies from our church are getting together at Chili's to have dinner and to do and Ornament Exchange. Sounds like fun. However, I think it's a bit early. Seems like we should at least wait til next month. Oh well. Now, do I dress Christmassy???

4. McDonald's often has special milk shake flavors for the different seasons/holidays. Shamrock, pumpkin, egg nog. I love the Shamrock. Actually I love them all. My question, however, is this. Why don't they do the same thing with their iced coffee? I would love to have some pumpkin iced coffee right now.

5. My Kiddo has been on a Gilligan's Island kick lately. Any of you have a three year old who watches TV shows from the 60's?

6. Has anyone ever been to Portland, Oregon? Anything interesting to do there? (Or maybe things to avoid?) I'll take any suggestions I can get. Thanks!

7. Went to see Couples Retreat this past weekend. I really liked it. The more I see Vince Vaughn the more I like him.

Happy Tuesday!!!

Shamrock shakes make me ridiculously happy. I'm not a big fan of McDonald's generally (they have pumpkin shakes?) but oh, a Shamrock shake is made of awesome.

Too early for Christmas!!!

First, let me say thanks for visiting my blog!

I agree - franchises shouldn't be allowed to advertise if they aren't in the area you are in. I love Denny's, but there isn't one to be found for miles and miles.

You kiddo has good taste - I LOVE Gilligan's Island. I always wanted to live there when I was little. Wait, I still do.

I have been to portland beautiful city but don't know anything about it I know I wasn't any help!! The McDonalds Sweet Tea is soo good! That is not good DD shouldn't advertise if you don't have on in your area!
Great randomness...stopping in for the first time from RTT!

Ugh! Our Starbucks closed this past summer-----the particular shop was doing really well but it was closed down due to the nation-wide closures of so many. I am sad. Still trying to get over it. Caribou Coffee is my haunt now!
Gilligan's Island! Now there's a great show. We don't get it here but I'm sure my 3 yr old would love it as well!!

I have never had Dunkin Donuts before, we dont have them here either, but i am tortured with their commercials every stinking day. It sucks big time! WE dont have special flavored milk shakes at the mcdonalds here, but we do get pumkin pies at thanksgiving and those are the best ever!

My kid is on a forties and fifties kick with classic Disney cartoons. Loves them.
I keep hearing the Shamrock shake is amazing, but never got one. Guess I'll have to wait until St Patty's Day, huh?

I love me some Pumpkin Spice Latte. Iced or hot. Delicious. With whip of course. Not exactly healthy but...

I feel the same way about Sonic as you do about Dunkin Donuts. We keep getting the commercials around here, with no Sonic in the immediate vicinity. It's like they're mocking me.

Happy RTT.

First off, I watched that youtube video you linked to. Holy Hannah, he beat his own head and needed stitches before he could even play. Beyond ridiculous! I hope the coach or team manager or whatever they have in football reprimanded him for his foolish behavior. Some people!

McD's sells pumpkin milkshakes? Wow I might have to try one of those but I agree pumpkin and coffee is a better combo. I think Starbucks sells a pumpkin coffee this time of year...

Thanks for visiting my blog yesterday! I love *meeting* new bloggers!

My friends and I have been doing a Christmas ornament exchange for years now -- they really are a lot of fun!

Happy "belated" RTT!!

Raven said...

Shamrock shakes are my absolute favorite!

It does seem a bit early for an ornament exchange. But then, I saw Christmas decorations up in August so maybe not.

I've never been to Portland so I can't help you there. Sorry.

Have a fantastic day!

I am embarrassed to say I have never tried a Shamrock shake. I am going to have to try it this March. The Chick-Fil-A shakes are awesome too!
