Miscellaneous Manure 10

I was nearly hit by a car in the parking lot of the grocery store today. I literally had to jump onto my cart and slide out of the way! I turned toward the driver swearing and she mouthed "I'm sorry". A witness to the almost accident told me I must "have a guardian angel". Do you believe in angels?

I've been watching The Vampire Diaries . It's not as good as the books but it's entertaining enough that I keep on watching. I've also been watching re-runs of Criminal Minds and House.

I have to read before I go to bed every night. Usually when the book falls out of my hand and hits the floor, I wake up and go to bed.

I think my bed is cursed. I never want to get in it at night and in the morning I don't want to get out.

I quit all of my games on Face book. They were taking up way too much time. It was hard because they are so stupidly addictive, but I did it.

I'm not making as many cookies and treats as I usually do this time of year. It's just so time consuming. Of course when I announced this I was told that I have to make certain things, like caramel candy for Hus and Gingerbread cookies for school... I'm not making Ginger Bread Houses this year, but I'm not going to mention this.

I finished Holiday shopping Early this year, but I haven't wrapped anything yet.

I'm thinking of applying to the Find My Family show. Have you seen it? Should I do it?

Keep warm.

Summer's Ready For Winter, But I'm Not

It was minus 2 degrees outside this morning when I walked the kids to the bus stop. T complained when I made him wear a sweatshirt under his jacket because he couldn't move his arms!

I told you all about the latest addition to our family, Summer, a few months ago. He continues to be a loving a sweet kitty. You just have to look at him and he starts purring.

Here he is when he first found us. His coat is thin and dull brownish black in color. He was also really bony under his fur.


And here he is today with his magnificent shiny fluffy black winter coat.


I seriously didn't know he was going to be so furry once he became healthy and the weather changed. Don't you want to scratch that belly? It's really soft.


He also gained a lot of weight since being neutered. That's not all fur around his waist.(Ignore the carelessly tossed Ugg boot(Hanukka gift from Grandma),my daughter has left in the middle of the kitchen floor. Really taking care of them, she is.)


Summer spends a lot of time here, on my bed and has his own favorite corner on the couch.



I wish I had a fur coat like his. BURRRRRRRR!!!
I added a "follow me on Twitter" button to my side-bar if any of you Tweet. I can't figure out how to put a Facebook link there yet.
Stay warm.

Saturday Sounds 20 or This Goes Out to My Favorite 11 Year Old Girls

Okay, it is not Saturday. I put the vid on this post yesterday, then E and I decided to watch other Youtube vids and well, then I got tired! I could back publish it, but then that would mean the two people reading me via their Google Reader would have possibly already deleted it. I'm soo confused.

Imagine a Mommy Van filled with five 11 year old girls and 3 mama's singing (loudly) along with this song while it played on the radio. I really didn't sing, just smiled because of all the positive pre-teen energy happening.




We were on our way home from seeing New Moon the first weekend it came to theatres. The movie was great. We all agreed that it is even better than the first movie in the Twilight series. There was much audience participation. Women and girls hooted and whistled every time one of the male lead characters took their shirt off.

"I'll run away with you Jacob!" one girl yelled.

"You can bite me Edward!" a mom yelled. I think that was one of our moms! I just had to laugh.

So on the ride back, while the others were singing to Lady Gaga, I was laughing. I love Lady Gaga. In an interview with Ellen Degeneres, Ellen compared Lady Gaga to David Bowie. To me she reminds me more of a Modern Madonna. Maybe Ellen was referring to the recent rumors about Lady Gaga possibly being a little ambiguous in the gender department, rumors denied by Lady's publicists. She could also just have been comparing the flamboyant costumes and make-up both artists wear. I think she is freaky and awesome. Oh and I did love David Bowie as a teen, and Madonna, and of course Ellen.

I really don't see any ambiguity in Lady G in this vid. She's all woman. Unless you call the Michael Jackson move she pulled (grabbing her vajayjay) ambiguous. E's the one that called it the Michael Jackson move.
