Miscellaneous Thoughts

Since I've been mostly bed-ridden during the past week, I don't have much interesting to say. So this week's miscellaneous thoughts are mostly devoted to the talking idiot box on my wall.
-----------------------------------------
First...PLEASE cross your fingers, say a prayer, throw salt over your shoulder, dance naked around a candle in your living room...whatever it is that you do for good luck. Steve got called back for a second interview and it is TODAY. :o)

Oh...and if you dance naked around a candle in your living room please don't take pictures. Nobody wants to see that.
-----------------------------------------
Hell's Kitchen returns Mondays at 9pm, starting June 4.
-----------------------------------------
LOST...ummm...WTF?!?! These people enjoy tormenting me, don't they? Spiders AND being buried alive in the same episode?!?!
-----------------------------------------
Notes from the Underbelly?!?!?! Somebody shoot me...NOW!
-----------------------------------------
"I love Caillou." Seriously...Steve said THAT! (He was desperate to watch LOST at the time. And again...LOST...ummm...WTF?!?!)
-----------------------------------------
I can't be the only one that finds Elizabeth Hasselbeck annoying on The View, can I?
-----------------------------------------
Sami and Lucas still aren't married on Days of Our Lives. Their kid is in college now, I think. I wonder who has the longest running romance on daytime television?
-----------------------------------------
This is the weekend for the last of the painting. It has come not a moment too soon. If I never see a paintbrush again I will be a happy woman.
-----------------------------------------
Update on the MOM Project fundraiser...in ONE day, our $5 fundraiser (encouraging everyone to donate just $5) has raised almost enough to cover our IRS fee to officially become 501(c)(3)!!!! Thank you to everyone who donated!!!
-----------------------------------------
I donated $10 to Kelly's Relay for Life team...in honor of my Aunt J, who is currently cancer-free!
-----------------------------------------
I finished my friend's baby blanket and will try to get to the post office tomorrow morning to get it sent out to her. It turned out nice. Sort of "casual elegance." I will have to take pictures and post them to share.
-----------------------------------------
I JUST NOW found this link for finding sewing/stitching charities. LOVE IT!
-----------------------------------------
I did not previously make a big announcement here...a fact that I must remedy.

My friend Mary has recently had her very first book of poetry published! Congratulations Mary!

(She loved the bag, Laura.)
-----------------------------------------
Did you check out my new flower pics on flickr? I love my flowers and my new (Canon Rebel xti) camera both very much. Now I just need to figure a way to work some of my pictures into a blog template...

I agree with you on Notes from the Underbelly. Have you heard that Addison on Grey's is getting her own show? I think it should be titled "The show that will make me cry every episode" I've had enough of high-risk pregnancies and dead babies. I don't need to see it in happy TV-land.


The flower is beautiful.

That flower is gorgeous!

kate said...

Wow that is a fabulous shot!

B said...

Nice shot! What kind of camera did ya get??

Uh...Elizabeth Hasselbeck?? She wrote the book on annoying. Blech.

vixanne wigg said...

Oh my god. The preview for that show practically made me vomit. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.

Bronwyn said...

Good vibes for Steve -- I hope his interview went well!

JMB said...

Great picture! We recently bought the same camera (I'm only now beginning to recover from the sticker shock). After seeing your picture, I'm going to have to wrestle the thing away from my husband once my tulips are up! Spring bulbs are the best!

Heather said...

Elisabeth Hasselbeck drives me freaking bananas. She is so unbelievably naive and well, just stupid. She is very cute, though. I just can't stand it when she opens her mouth.

Much much luck to Steve!

Brenda said...

Great photo.
Very beautiful!

I've been meaning to ask...what lens do you use on your camera? I like photography and I'm always on the lookout for new accessories for my camera.

Catherine said...

It's just the kit 18-55mm lens.
