Random thoughts

Posted: Tuesday, March 03, 2009 by Travis Cody in

I enjoy answering comments, but recently I haven't had time to do it. I'm reading though!

Did you know that Bandaid brand adhesive bandages have brail on them? I just noticed that last night. I've never noticed it on any other product, but it makes sense. Does anyone know of any other products that have brail writing?

I am stuck on Bandaid, cause Bandaid's stuck on me. Dang...that's gonna stick for awhile. Bwahahahahahahahaaa! Stick for awhile...get it??? I crack myself up.

Sometimes you start to clean up a little mess, and you end up vaccuuming the whole floor.

Pam and I both enjoy playing Mahjong online. We found a game we really enjoy and decided to purchase after the 60 minute freebie. We're having our own little tournament, and she's beating me right now. But what we can't figure out is some of the scores and times from some of the players on the top 10 lists. We can't see how they can do these puzzles in less than a minute!

I'm sucking at one trivia game I play every month, but doing ok at the other one.

Hey! Did I happen to mention that Dancing with the Stars returns next Monday, March 9?

I did?


Well, I'm saying it again!

    Hmmm. Never noticed anything with braille on it but since you wrote this and had to add that damned ditty -stuck on bandaids- yes, now that is stuck on me and I've got an earworm going. Thanks a heap for that, Travis!

  1. DrillerAA says:

    Dancing with the Stars on Monday night and the new Taylor Hick CD is released next Tuesday...it's gonna be a good week.

  1. Matt-Man says:

    I have never played Mahjong. I am so out of the loop. Cheers Travis!!

  1. That little band aid jingle takes me back. I didn't know about the braille.

  1. I haven't used a Bandaid in forever. I've bought my first aid supplies from a first aid company for years. Way better bandaids... and they deliver! Braille? Is this usually a problem? Who knew?

    I have no clue how to play Mahjong, but Miss Bee and Sarge are learning to play.

    I've moved my blog back to WordPress. I've had a few blogger issues lately. And I'm wishy-washy.

  1. Bond says:

    Never knew about the braille. Did you know there are little flaps at the end of the Reynolds wrap tubes to hold the roll inside? I didn't until recently...

    DWTS next week! I went looking for it last night! LOL

    never played Mahjong...and thanks so much for the earworm

    Payback...My bologna has a first name it's OSCAR....


  1. Julie says:

    **laughs at Vinny** At least that has always helped me spell "bologna"! Those little thingys are on the dangblasted rolls of plastic wrap too! I learned about that a few months ago and people stand in awe of my knowledge...and my humor.

    But Travis.....have you ever cleaned house with David Bowie cranked up full bore! Zoom zoom zoom!! It's fun to hula hoop to too!

  1. Good mood today, huh? All this randomness made me laugh! :)


  1. Akelamalu says:

    Medicine packaging here has braille on it.

    Is Dancing with the stars due to start again soon Trav? ;)

  1. Jamie says:

    Obviously you have never been inside a chinese social club or in the vicinity of a group of elderly Jewish ladies ... Mah Jong isn't a game, it is a blood sport and those people are FAST!!!!

    Both Betty and I love computer Mahjong but haven't played in a while. Your blog might get us going again.
    Betty loves Dancing with the Stars. I would be happy if all reality TV was to go away.

  1. Hope says:

    Your DWS obsession cracks me the hell up so much I may have to watch just to see what all the hubbub is about.

  1. Linda says:

    You want to know what I think is odd that has braille? Drive-up ATMs. I just don't get that one at all! Also, when I used to work in Security out at Foxwoods Casino, I thought it was very odd that they had braille on the wall for directions to the restrooms. Now how would a person know where to start???

  1. Jeff B says:

    Thanks to you an Vinny I now have two jingles running through neurons. Thanks a lot.

  1. Travis says:

    Jeni: I spelled Braille wrong and that's a bit embarrassing.

    Drilleraa: You're right!

    Matt: Not out of the loop, just in a different one. LOL!

    Charles: Today was the day for old commercial jingles.

    WT4W: I think the Braille is great.

    V: You're welcome for the earworm. If I have to suffer, you all must suffer! Bwahahahahaa!

    Julie: I have never cleaned house to Bowie. It might be worth a try.

    Clancy: I was feeling a bit silly.

    Akelamalu: How did you know about the Dancing? LOL!

    Jamie: I guess it is at that!

    Doc: Don't look at it as reality...it's just entertainment.

    Hope: Wait till you see the reviews.

    Linda: These are all good questions.

    Starr: Yes Ma'am!

    Jeff: You are most welcome.

  1. I gotta go feel the band aids.

  1. now I'll be singing the band-aid song all day...LOL!

    Happy Wednesday!

  1. I just noticed the braille on the bandaids this week! Where have I been?
    Mahjong is one of my favorites too!

  1. Ivanhoe says:

    Oh you little excited you :o) Cannot wait to hear your DWTS reviews.

  1. The Band-aid commercial is a favorite for my husband to sing randomly.

  1. Cheesy says:

    Man oh man I would have been lost this last month without games... ty ty King.com!
