Random Tuesday and Coffee Chat

Join Stacy Uncorked for some randomness.

Time for random Tuesday, and I got nothin'!  Here is my perfect opportunity to write about anything I want, anything at all, and I got nothin'.  Isn't that ironic?  I'm usually a "Chatty Cathy," and here I am drawing a blank.

Wait!  I got it!  Chatty Cathy!  Did you have that doll?  It was only made from 1959 to 1965, the year I was born, but I never had one.  I think my sister did, but she wasn't really into dolls.  I was, though.  I played with them until fifth grade, but I probably wouldn't have admitted it then.  My favorite Christmas present that year was Baby Alive.  I thought it was great fun to feed her and change her diaper.  If I'd only known what it was really like!

Something else I liked to play with besides my baby dolls and Barbie dolls was paper dolls.  Do you see a theme?  I imagine younger people have no idea what paper dolls are.  And in our high-tech world, who would play with them now?  They were basically dolls made of heavy paper or lightweight cardboard-type material.  The dolls had tabs on the bottom so they could stand up.  You would punch outfits out of paper, which also had tabs so you could "dress" the dolls.  I loved them!

It's also time for Coffee Chat at Ink Interrupted.
This week she asks...
The long work day is done, you arrive home 
and the first thing you do...?

Usually, I take my school bag upstairs and change clothes.  I've been in "professional" clothing all day.  Time to pull out the yoga pants, tee shirt, and sneakers!  And I have to stop and pet the cat, too.  But sometimes, I actually start on dinner before changing clothes. Like last night... I had to start right away because there was much to prepare:  fried pork chops, sauteed asparagus, and whipped potatoes all from scratch.  If I wait until after dinner to change, I might as well just shower and get my PJ's on!  How about you?


  1. I usually change first thing as well if I am not doing a drive by to simply pick up kids to transfer them to art or church!

    Great post!

  2. I didn't have a Chatty Cathy - Cabbage Patch Dolls were the big thing when I was young. We also had something like the paper dolls, except it was more magnetic and the clothing would stick. And of course, I had Barbie everything.
    I justify wearing my yoga pants at home all day, because at some point I actually do yoga. most days. :)

  3. I loved playing with Chatty Cathy and paper dolls both store bought and ones my Grandma would make for us. We spent hours playing with them.


I love comments! Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
