I wonder...

  • Why you can't hear your phone ring but you can always hear the annoying beep, that indicates you've missed a call? Is it set to a different volume?
  • Why it is legal to not use your turn signal in the state of North Carolina? That's right, in good ol' NC you don't have to use your turn signal if you don't want to. This explains why people don't use them. Husband and I always joke that you have to pay more for turn signals in your car. Kind of like how you have to pay more for an automatic versus a standard car. If you ride with us you'll alway hear us remark that apparently that car doesn't come with turn signals. I also honk at them. They are there for a reason...be safe!
  • (Also, speaking of cars and annoying drivers) Why do some people come to complete stop to turn right? There is no need other than wanting to cause an accident.
  • What if the crock pot dinner I'm making doesn't come out right and I've wasted two whole chicken breasts? (NOTE TO HUSBAND: please turn on the crock pot to the low setting. I love you.) (also, this is my first time making a crock pot dinner so it wouldn't be that bad if I messed it up. We could chalk it up to trial and error)
  • Why is Fall such a wonderful time of year? Really, it's beautiful here. Husband can we take a drive through the Blue Ridge Mountain Parkway? If we can, I'll take you to the zoo. :)

That's all. I'm just curious. If you have some answers or insights, I'd love to hear them.

*kisses*

Um... you're not gonna leave him at the zoo are you?

The wonderful thing about the crock pot is it always comes out right! It's idiot proof. I just made the best corn chowder this weekend and I'm no cook--trust me.

ADW: I wasn't planning on it, but maybe :)

Pessimistic: Thanks for stopping by! And thanks for reassuring words. i need them :)

Apparently all the bad drivers from Miami have started migrating north to NC!

Or all the cab drivers from New York are driving around incognito in North Carolina :)

Ooooh, I've been thinking about getting a crock pot. They're so nifty. How long can you leave things in them? Is there a time limit?

You just reminded me that I got a crock pot at my shower! Darn - the soup I'm wanting to make tonight would be perfect in the crock pot. Oh well. What did you make in yours?

Mim said...

Balou-thanks for sending them my way!

Marg-Dude, it's my first time but according to the instructions if something takes 15-30 minutes to cook in the oven it will take 4-6 hours to cook. But them there's the stipulation that if you're cooking raw meat it needs to cook for at least 8 hours...so we'll see.

Sass-Chicken and Rice with Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Chicken. Yummy, Yummy. Also, my aunt gave me a soup cookbook as part of my wedding present. i can't wait for it to get cool enough to make some!

Im just glad she's actually making dinner instead of just snaking and makin me eat microwavable burritos or pizza rolls!

Princess Pointful said...

A giant wow for the no turn signal thing. Seriously-- it is so easy-- why make it optional?

Sabrina said...

I always keep a frozen pizza or something equally easy to whip up, in case I mess up dinner. But, uh, that, like, never happens. Right.

The one thing that annoys me more than anything in NC are the people that have to drift left to turn right. I guess that's why they don't use turn signals...they just end up confusing themselves deciding which way to go...

I like to make pulled pork BBQ in the crock pot. All ya need is a pork shoulder or pork roast, and bbq sauce! We like that option being out here in beef land! The best part of it is that you can put it in in the morning and leave it all day, and it'll be ready for you when you get home. No fuss!

As for the drivers, in ATL there was an epidemic of dangerously over-courteous drivers. They stop in the middle of the road to let someone out, things like that. In the words of my mother, one of my favorite quotes... "Don't be nice! It confuses people!"
I think there are bad drivers everywhere!

The "law" in Washington is to count to 10 VERY SLOWLY when the light turns green so that the third car in line can't make the light.
