The Fragments

Making a return to Friday Fragments just for my friend Katie, who apparently is absolutely lost without them. It's nice to know I have readers. FF is brought to you by Mrs4444!

Mommy's Idea

I'd bitch about the heat, but I bet everyone already knows that it's hot out. The good thing about blogging is that your past always comes back to haunt you. We humans are fickle creatures. Where do I need to go to get a nice, consistent 70 degree climate?

As the old cliche goes, "it's not the heat, it's the humidity!" True 'dat. I got the treadmill so that I could keep running all summer. Doesn't help so much when your basement feels like a sauna.

You know it's going to be a good day when you hear Biz Markie AND Paula Abdul on the way to work.

Biz Markie live at the Apollo? Wow, he looks so young! Did you know there was an official video for Just A Friend? Me, neither. Well, I've learned something. Guess this has already been a productive day.

I mentioned this yesterday, but my sister has a blog. A funny, clever, sarcastic blog. You'll love it, I promise.

I'm trying to plan my big 30th Birthday Extravaganza. I really want to have a big 90s-themed roller-skating Girls' Night Out, but the only place that offers such a thing runs them on Saturday nights starting at 10:30. I'm afraid that's too late and no one will come :(

Did you ever wonder what would happen if you went to Cold Stone Creamery (holy cow, that sounds amazing right now) and ordered every possible mix-in? No? Me neither. But now I know.

Speaking of Random Stuff on the Web, Lehigh University did a study and calculated exactly how much it would cost to send a kid to Hogwarts School or Witchcraft and Wizardry. WAY more than what I paid for my entire undergraduate education. It would be nice to have a pretty robe, though....

What? Two random website links weren't enough? You want a third? I can oblige that request. Two churches located across the street from each other. Doesn't matter if it's real or not, still funny.

Have you Urban Dictionaried yourself? I guess it's the new (and more amusing) version of Googling yourself.

Here's mine:


A french name originally derived from the Ancient Greek. The feminine form of John. People with this name are amazingly calm and sensitive to other people's needs. Being friends with them is a great investment of time. Once friends with a Jene, You will always be friends!

Friend: "Jene, You're my best friend in the whole world. Man you're so amazing!"

Jene: "Thanks friend. You're pretty amazing yourself!"

What are you?


  1. I'll try that urban dictionary thing.
    "Saturday nights starting at 10:30."  Oh yeah that's way too late for the ladies when they get stuck at that 29 stage which has been known to last for 10 years or more.

  2. Had to come back and say that church sign thing - too funny - everyone should check it out

  3. I love you, Jene -- Fragments ALWAYS make my day.  Today it was even better, my kids were absolute demons tonight, and I read them after they went to bed.  Just as good as a glass of wine.  Well, not really, but almost.  :)

  4. Hey you and your sister should link-up to my latest idea for a blog game/link thing.  I actually decided on using the same linky tool you did.  Starts Sundays - LLL
    see ya

  5. Ha, I Urban Dictionaried myself, LOVE it.

    MY UD is hilarious.  Love my name now....

  7. Cold Stone Creamery is kinda crazy. I can't imagine having that much crap in my ice cream. :) I might be a purist where ice cream is involved.

    Julia means downy, soft and also youthful. I'm not sure how to take that... :)

  8. Very impressive! Sounds like you've got a variety of skills going on :)

  9. I'm expecting mine to last for quite a while...
