Hi, and welcome to Mirandomness! This is where I (Miranda) put all of my random thoughts about anything and everything. Feel free to wander, but make sure to leave your shoes at the door.

Time Breaks the Sound Barrier.

Hello, hello!

Today's post is about Time.

You know how people often say that Time flies?

It's true. Whether you're having fun or not.

In fact, Time is flying so fast, it has broken the sound barrier.

(Yep. That was what that loud noise was.)

To illustrate my point, consider the fact that today is November 30th.


What is up with this? November just started.

There is not much snow on the ground.

It can't be December already. We just had Halloween!

Insanity. Craziness, I tell you.


I wonder which airline Time uses.

I myself prefer Delta.

Well, that is all. Have fun riding Time.

Enjoy your complimentary pretzels.

About Teh Fish.


It is me.

You may have noticed the little fish pond to the right of my posts.

(If you haven't, quick scroll down and take a look.)

Now. Two things.

ONE. These fish have names.

The bright blue one is named Joanne.

The reddish one is named Suzanne.

The green one is named Rick.

The yellow one is named Michelle.

And the light blue one is named Simon James Aleksander Ragsdale the Third.

(Just kidding. His name is William. I call him Bill.)

TWO. These are not regular fish. Don't tell anyone, but they are actually Ninja fish. So please, do not feed them by clicking on their pond.

However fun it may be.


(Eh, not really. You can feed them if you want to.)

So yeah. Now you know about teh Fish.

Hoarding Daylight.

Ollo, peoples!

Today's post is about the Hoarding of Daylight, a.k.a, Daylight Savings time.

It ended yesterday, you know.  If you didn't, then that is why you have been early to all your appointments today.

So yeah. Thanks a lot, Benjamin Franklin.

What's the deal with it anyway?

I mean, where does the extra hour go? It's kind of like regrouping. Someone decided, hey, let's chop off an hour on a day here in spring (causing a day with only 23 hours,) and keep it.

I bet it's like a chocolate bar that someone accidental leaves in the pocket of the jeans that they pack away for the summer. When they finally pull the jeans out again in fall, the chocolate has become malformed.

Arizona and Hawaii have the right idea.

But seriously, where does the hour go? Who takes it? The president? Is there a little drawer in his desk reserved just for the extra hour?  Does it spilt for New Zealand when nobody is looking? And why does it always come back? (Causing a day with 25 hours?)

The whole business is highly irritating.

Lovely Lingo Lesson.

Ollo! (That means hello, greetings.)

This post is about Lingo. (That means slang.)

Some of you may have noticed that I have my own Lingo.

(For those of you who have not noticed, good for you! 10 points to whichever Hogwarts house you are in. Unless you're a Slytherin. Then you get ten points taken away.)

Here is the translation to some of my more common vocabularical mash-ups.

Ollo- Hello.

Peoples- pronounced pe-pulsh. Means people.

Confuzzled- very confused.

Teh- the. As in, "Where is teh llama?"

Scaboon- spoon.

Huffadoodle- darn.

Mirandomness- the name of this blog. Also, something random that Miranda came up with.


I have a challange for you. Pick one of the above words. Start using it in everyday life. See what happens. Report back.

Today's Mirandomness was made possible by the decision of Miranda's parents to join the rest of teh modern world and get Wi-fi.

That is all. Goodbye, Peoples. Miranda Out.

Sum it Up Saturday.


The day where I don't feel like writing out an entire blog post.


Instead, I will simply Sum It Up.

Here it is.

I don't particularly enjoy citrus fruit of the lemon variety. So why is it that that is all life's giving me right now? Sincerely, someone who would greatly appreciate an Orange.

And that is all. Miranda Out.

Kitchen Utensils Unleashed.

Yo. I'm back.

This piece of Mirandomness is about kitchen utensils. And why most of them are evil.

Don't laugh.

I'm serious.

Some of you may be thinking "How are kitchen utensils evil?"

Well I'll tell you.

It all started with the invention of the Spork. You know, that odd Fork/Scaboon combination that comes with your refried beans at Taco Bell? No one is quite sure who was responsible for its invention, but I'm sure they ended up regretting it. Because Sporks turned out to be malicious.

(It probably stemmed from its identity crisis. Does it go with the Forks? With the Scaboons? We were very confuzzled.)

Well, the Scaboons and the Forks did not like the Sporks either. Think Frankenstien. This thing should not exist. The Knifes didn't really care either way. But then again, they don't really care about much. They're more the stone wall type.

Anywho, back to the Forks and Scaboons. They decided that the issue needed to be taken to the Mixer.

The Mixer listened to both side of the tale. It thought for awhile on the best route to take. He then decided that since the Forks and Scaboons had been around longer, he would take their side.

The Sporks were sentenced to death by Cheese Grater.

(Told you that most utensils are evil. Actually, the only ones who aren't evil are the pizza cutters, the ice cream scoop, and the chicken baster.)

So the Forks and the Scaboons hired the Wooden Scaboons and Spatulas to round up the Sporks and execute them via Cheese Grater.

What they didn't know was that the Sporks knew Kung Fu.

To make a long and epic battle short, the Sporks got away. They retreated to taco restaurants everywhere. But they vowed to someday take revenge.

And the REAL problem is that Sporks can hold a grudge. The Forks and Scaboons operate more on an out-of-sight-out-of-mind deal. They forgot all about the Sporks once they were no longer there.

But the Sporks didn't forget. They're biding their time.  Consider yourself warned.

Goodbye. Miranda out.

Miranda's Bacon-Potato Soup.

Hi. Happy Day-After-the -31st-Anniversary-of-Voldemort's-First-Defeat!

It was also Nearly Headless Nick's deathday.

And the day that Harry's parents died.


Anywho, I have something for you.

You may be wondering, "And what is this something for me?"

Well I'll tell you. It is the recipe to my special super-yummy Bacon-Potato Soup. And here it is.

Miranda's Bacon-Potato Soup.
Serves 12.
Takes about an hour and a half.

1/2 lb. uncooked Bacon, chopped.
1 onion, chopped.
1 stick butter.
Large can chicken broth.
8 cups scrubbed and chopped potatos.
Salt and Pepper.
3/4 cups milk.
1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese.
1/2 cup sour cream.

Saute bacon and onion in large pot until bacon is crispy and onions are brown. Remove from pot with slotted spoon and set aside. Add butter to bacon grease in pot and melt. Add flour to make a roux. When roux is thickened with no lumps, add chicken broth. Add chopped potatos. Bring to a boil, stirring frequently. Put a lid on it and cook 30 min or until potatos are soft. Uncover. Salt and pepper to taste. Add milk, cheddar, and sour cream and stir. Remove pot from heat. Add bacon and onions. Stir some more. Serve after 5 to 10 minutes.

And there you are. Enjoy. Share. Tell people where you got it from. Bye.
