Auuuuugggghhhhhh

February 26th, 2008 · No Comments

I have been sick with the respiratory flu, I think. At any rate, I have had a fever and some actual shake me around chills the past couple of days. Last night I was stretched out under afghans and blankets when I heard people talking in the house that there are many police cars outside. […]

The afternoon in the sitting room

February 22nd, 2008 · 1 Comment

I decided no more, no more total disarray in the bedroom and sitting room; so this afternoon I started.  I pulled out bins from the closet and went through them, separating into keep, Goodwill and trash piles. I was brutal; not so much trash, but a lot of Goodwill. That left me with several empty […]

Harvesting the Heart – Jodi Picoult

February 21st, 2008 · No Comments

I walked down the truncated book aisle at our Wal-Mart and saw this book by Jodi  Picoult, who wrote  My Sister’s Keeper,  dontcha know.  I took it down from the shelf and saw that it was about a young mother and motherhood and I thought, “Oh, not for me.” Still, I opened it and starting […]

Pioneer Woman is big draw

February 21st, 2008 · No Comments

I have been fooling around with this little blog just for the heck of it, but I have noticed when I wonder in print about the Pioneer Woman, some folks actually stop by. I feel they must be disappointed; I have nothing more to add to her mystique other than to echo the musings of […]

Oh, I hate transcribing . . .listen . . . type . . . listen–American Gangster

February 20th, 2008 · 5 Comments

The interview was a week ago and it was an interesting one, but now I cannot put it off any longer – I must transcribe, not just for the words but for a reminder of the inflection with which they were spoken and punctuated with chuckles or groans. So I started . . . just […]

Michael Clayton: watched and liked.

February 20th, 2008 · No Comments

I didn’t know how much I would enjoy Michael Clayton, or if I would or not – but I liked it. Yes, I did. It just shows you can be smart, potentially well-off and still get yourself mired in gunky forlorn despair. Will I watch it again? Yes, I will. Oh, gee, I did the […]

slick but no school delays

February 20th, 2008 · No Comments

I could feel impeding skids and slide-arounds this morning, even coming out of the driveway, and I think today is one of those mornings when a two-hour-BigD would have been appropriate. It just looks like a skiff of snow out there, but the tires don’t want to take a quick bite while starting up again […]

Urban explorers

February 19th, 2008 · No Comments

I don’t know much about Urban Exploring, other than to look at the pictures other have taken of abandoned sites. I think one of my first vicarious forays was into a mental hospital in Connecticut – ironic, huh? Anyway, here is a site I found today and you can see Fort Ord and a lot […]
