You are reading page 6 of Random Thoughts. If you want to start from the beginning Go to First Page.

I've heard that term used before, as in "she turned on her heel and flounced out of the room in a huff". It basically means the flouncer is acting like a fifth-grader who suddenly decides he or she doesn't like the way the game is being played, picks up his/her ball, and goes home. :lol2:

That's the way I've heard the term "flounce" too.

I have no random thoughts at this moment in time.

I am stressing as I need to go to court tomorrow for the estate nonsense that continues to run my life of the last 10 months. It is a formality but to me it is a bid deal. Why do people need to fight over money? This is personal not just a fight for more $$. I am praying to get the answer to the last offer this week. Just seeing estate lawyer makes me crazy. I just want it over so bad I can taste.

If you have time say alittle prayer for me that this will end this week, and that the court thing is truly a formality.

I am pulling for you.

My random thought: what do cows think about when they are chewing cud and staring off into space? Seriously, are they contemplating some deep stuff like quantum physics?

Poi Dog, Cows do not contemplate- they ruminate. And, of course, rumination refers to the act of meditation, the repetition of a thought. Physics deal, partially, with the science of motion. And quantum physics have to meet even heavier (not necessarily moleculary-speaking) criteria. No, Cows are not considering creatures.

Diane Ackerman, in her book, An Alchemy of Mind, put across rather well what she believes lower animals "think". She refered to an Alligator's thoughts in reference to a dial tone. Total lower brain activity. And even though bovine are higher sentient beings, their "thoughts" are probably little more than a dial tone.

We often tend to give our lesser brethren on the food chain a higher consciousness than they deserve. Heck, we have a tendency to personify intangible objects. Maybe in that way, we are trying to make ourselves equal with all. Who knows?

However, I do know what Chickens think:

"Into space, the Chickens gaze

And lay more eggs for mayonnaise."

Put THAT in your egg salad and contemplate Cows!

Dave

Edit: I remembered the correct words to the Chicken poem and editted it, taking out the part that said they "dreamed of mayonnaise". I guess I don't know what chickens think. Heck, I don't know what ANYbody thinks! I'm dirt! I'm less than dirt! *Please forgive me.* I gotta go self-flagulate.

I think cows might be thinking about the weather

Now, I've done some empirical research on something my Dad told me when I was knee high to a Grasshopper:

"If a Cow lays down in the pasture, there's going to be a good chance it will rain."

Since that time, whenever I ride by a pasture of Cows, I'll count the number lying in the field verses the standing number. For example, if four Cows are lying, and six are standing, I calculate that there's a 40% chance of rain. I have found in my experience that Cows are really good at forecasting rain. Or no rain.

My random thought: How does it work when a novel is written by 2 people, co-authors...like who does what..especially when one author is much more prominent than the other??????

When I was a kid, I use to wonder who wrote what in the Beatles' songs by Lennon and McCartney. But when I finally saw them on TV, I didn't wonder anymore because they all looked alike to me.

Random thought: why be so serious. this is where we go to relax, give our :twocents:, agree to disagree.

Yeah. And, like the Beatles, you all pretty much look alike to me.

do not publicly engage.

Not even if I get down on my knees in public to confess my love?

Is confess or profess? Aren't they the same thing? I'm relatively certain that profound and confound are not the same thing, as I've been told, "Confound your profound remark!"

Anyway, I wouldn't get engaged to anyone on this site. You all look alike to me. Like the Beatles.

Know what I mean?

Random thoughts...... why do folks go to the Swedish pancake restaurant in town and get "bbq" (I use that loosely- there's no smoke within miles of that place unless something burns down) ribs....????? JUST NOT RIGHT!!! My Swedish grandma tried to make chop suey (with ground beef, mind you) and it had GRAVY!! (in 1970, that was a treat :D).

I had a Uncle who could perform magic tricks. He would walk down the street and turn into a bar.
