Here's what I think

You want to know what I think?

Ok, I'll tell you.

I think rainbows are beautiful, and I hate that they get co-opted and attached to controversial things. Just leave the rainbows in the sky -- they belong to all of us.

I think the Tea Party movement is full of misinformed people. I don't have a problem with their politics so much as with their historical revisions. If you're going to look at American history, you need to look at the whole picture.

I think President Obama is discovering that the country doesn't much care how cool he is anymore.

I think EVERY politician everywhere should live in mortal fear of their political lives. At. All. Times.

I think nothing will ever be accomplished in this country until we all learn to give all we can, take only what is necessary and try to see one another's points of view.

I think there are no more statesmen in this country. The idiots who run this nation haven't had a thought that ran deeper than a soundbite in nearly a generation.

I think they're all replaceable.

I think I'm already tired of writing about politics.

I think Glee is the best show on television, and that the Glee cast sings every song better than the original.

I think Star Wars is the bedrock of philosophy for my generation.

I think Taylor Swift is awesome!

I think homemade strawberry lemonade is ambrosia.

I think Mark Twain is the greatest American Author.

I think I'm Huck Finn, and my best friend is Tom Sawyer.

I think I live in the loveliest place on earth.

I think cargo shorts are a great invention.

I think my camera has given me a very interesting perspective on life.

I think Pink Floyd is timeless.

I think my iPad loves me as much as I love it.

I think I blog to avoid doing laundry.

Or dishes.

Or yardwork.

Or photo editing.

I think my guitar's out of tune, if you know what I mean.
(I mean my guitar's out of tune, incidentally...)

I think God loves His children, but we must frustrate him a lot.

I think my wife sometimes wonders what she got herself into. But I think she loves me -- sometimes because, and sometimes in spite of -- who I am.

I think I shouldn't just sit down and write out random thoughts anymore.

If you didn't sit down and write random thoughts, what would your blog consist of?

Aaron said...

Hahaha....Pam....I love you.


...oh and don't txt me for blog ideas then not use them...

Chris said...

Good point Pam.

And Aaron, I didn't have time to fully develop any of your ideas -- my brain was obviously turning to mush.

So shut up.

I disagree. I think you should spew your random thoughts onto your blog every day. I need to do more of that.

I agree with this 100% I loved this post and if you don't mind I think I'd like to be a copycat and do it on my blog very soon. :)

For being a bunch of random thoughts this is a great post.

And I agree with the rainbow thing, so sad it has been ruined.

And yes, can't we just fire congress?

I like your random thoughts. They make me think about something besides taking care of my kids!

I think I should put my random thoughts out there more often. But first I would have to get a notebook and write them down because I can't seem to hold onto them with all the honking, beeping and other assorted little boy noises in the background.

How long did it take you to write all this?
All I've been hearing about lately is Glee. And the soundtrack has been popping up on my Disney Pandora station and it rocks. Obviously, I'm going to have to watch the first season this summer.

Don't stop! Random thoughts are the best.
