My Reading Quandry

October 13, 2006

Reading Problems It’s very sad I am to report that as of today, October 13, I have only read 39 books since the first of the year. That is a paltry sum when you consider a couple years ago I would have easily been into triple digits by now. I started out pretty good last…

Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life

October 10, 2006

I’m going to go out on a limb here and assume you all have seen Young Frankenstein. If you haven’t, you should. It’s one of the funniest movies ever and only gets better each time you watch it. Remember the part when Madeline Kahn, delirious in the afterglow of her tryst with the monster, sings…

Just Playing Around

October 9, 2006

As you can see, I’ve been playing with my blog. Todd and Taylor are at the Eric Clapton concert, Katie’s in bed and I could be doing something productive. Like reading. Instead I’m playing, pretending to know something about HTML and that sort of thing. I think I should probably stop before I really mess…

It’s Always Something

October 8, 2006

Car Troubles Friday as I was running to the grocery store in preparation for our camping trip the van started making funny noises. I use the term “funny” very loosely. It sounded as though something was dragging on the asphalt as I drove. So I pulled into a gas station parking lot and called Todd.…

New Illustration

October 6, 2006

For any of this to make sense you have to read my prior post, License to Gorge. Because 1)I’m trying to get out of work I have to do and 2) I had a lot of fun playing on Paint Shop, I created another illustration. This one shows what the results would be if the…

License to Gorge

October 6, 2006

It’s looking like sometime in the fairly near future I will be losing the nickname of Uniboob. Todd and I met with the surgical oncologist yesterday concerning a prophylactic right mastectomy and I see the plastic surgeon next week about the reconstruction. Reconstruction has improved significantly over the years, even just since I had my…

My Theme Song

October 4, 2006

I stole this from Amanda (Bookwormom) Your Theme Song is Beautiful Day by U2 “Sky falls, you feel like It’s a beautiful day Don’t let it get away” You see the beauty in life, especially in ordinary everyday moments. And if you’re feeling down, even that seems a little beautiful too. What’s Your Theme Song?…

So much to post. So little time…

October 4, 2006

Todd told me this evening that I need a new post because he’s getting bored reading the same thing over and over. This past week has given me many blogworthy subjects, but I’m afraid I don’t have the time or the energy to give any of them the attention they deserve. They will have to…

No Time for Blogging

September 25, 2006

We had a great weekend. Lots of good stuff going on. Much to tell. But I don’t have time write much so I’ll give you the Reader’s Digest Condensed Version. Saturday evening was a neighborhood block party. There’s only one way in and out of the subdivision so we blocked off one of the streets…
