This entry is a little bit "PG" rated. You are warned.
I was very underwhelmed by Jay Leno's new show. Even when he was on the Tonight Show I never really thought he was that funny. Conan, on the other hand, to me is so funny I have to be careful of waking DH up - I can keep from laughing out loud, but my laughing shakes the bed.
When I have a sore throat (like right now) sometimes I like a little shot of Sambuka. For medicinal purposes of course. Actually, DH and I always refer to it as "Sambvka", because the kind we buy has like a Roman "V" for the "u". Also, sometimes I like to say "smoooooooth" in a raspy voice after the first sip.
I can't believe 80s fashion is back. I really thought I would be older than this before I saw stuff kids are wearing that I used to wear. DH wants to know when the "big hair" is coming back.
Went to a local giant flea market recently and I got: a vintage postcard of the area our "cabin to be" is in, a giant bag of kettle korn, a $10 Totes brand winter coat for me, a plastic thingy that goes on a soda can that makes the top like a bottle top so DD can now drink her 4 sips of soda and not have the rest go to waste, and a vintage "Big Golden Book" called "The True Story of Smokey the Bear". Incidentally, just so you are aware, Smokey's OFFICIAL REAL NAME is "Smokey Bear", not "Smokey The Bear". A lot of people don't know that.
I have been guest posting at gspn.tv. They really have some great podcasts. I am especially loving the 10 or 12 minute "Almost Daily Devotionals". Also, I am glad to be getting my Lost "fix" with their "Weekly Lost Podcast" to tide me over until that show finally comes back on.
There is one restaurant in Rhinebeck, NY that everyone seems to think is so great - I see it in reveiws and recommendations everywhere. I've been there a lot. It's not all that, people!
I can't decide whether to mow the lawn tomorrow, or go to the warehouse club and liquor store (we are at critical, Defcon Level 1 toilet paper and wine levels). But, I'm feeling kinda crappy, so I might not do either.
We were at DD's school open house tonight and I forgot to tape the Survivor premiere - d'oh! We'll have to watch it online maybe tomorrow. DH just saw a headline about a guy who punched another guy in the head at a school open house. DH said, "Well, I guess that's where you'd want to punch a guy if you wanted to hurt him." I said, "I'd have punched him you-know-where if I really wanted to hurt him". Apparently if you're a guy it's not the "thing to do" to punch another guy you-know-where. Etiquette-wise it's fine for a woman to go for the breeches though.
"Hoarders" on A&E is my current favorite, must-see show. (You can watch episodes for free at the A&E website.)
Note to self: do not try to buy a lawnmower battery in September. However, if you want a snow blower in September, you're good.
