Reading through the Oscar nominees, it occurred to me that I was nearly to the end (Visual Effects) before I encountered a movie I've seen. I've seen 4 of the 5 nominees for that category and not a single movie in *any* other category. This is just bizarre for me....
It's dark and overcast out, I'm by myself in my office building (for another 7 minutes, at least) and the wind is making horror-movie like sounds as it whips around the building. I'm not usually a nervous type of person, but this is a little creepy.
And we have finished. We have gone up one side and down the other side of the iconic Massachusetts Street in Lawrence, eating at every single establishment we've come across. We made no side trips down the various numbered streets (though we were tempted) and we've only missed one new place that opened since we started. We win!!!
Not only did I vote, according to my sticker, but I voted in Douglas County. Fancy pants!! Also - OH on my way out of the polling place: You better be nice to me or I'll vote for Brownback!. He's our own boogeyman here in Lawrence!!
I'm counting down... 7 hours to go until I'm a week from my last cigarette. I'm about to go completely insane and I think I've eaten all the Ben and Jerry's AND most of the Hy-Vee bakery output in eastern Kansas, but I'm almost a week without having had a cigarette and I think I might make it this time (check back in a year - that's when I tend to
I am woman; hear me roar!! I just replaced my car's headlamp and put the hubcap I'd knocked off the other day (totally not my fault - it was the sun's fault entirely). I did have to have some tool help from the guy who works as a mechanic (I didn't have a 10mm socket wrench), and he had to unplug the old bulb from the wiring because my hands
Might have gone a little veggie-wild at the farmer's market today. I have broccoli, bok choy, snow peas, salad mix, sweet corn and fresh green beans as well as a 3 pound pork roast and a pound of fresh sausage and 4 cheddar brats. Oh, and a big ol' loaf of sourdough bread. We're gonna eat good this week!
It's cool in the air conditioning and I'm enjoying that. However, I just heard my dog make his "balloon losing air" impression and I'm thinking I may go hang out outside and enjoy the humidity for a while.
Does anyone use a bible app on their android phone/tablet? My Mom wants something she can use during church services that doesn't require internet access and is relatively cheap or free. Anybody have any recommendations?
I am stumped. How am I supposed to dress today? According to my phone's weather app, it's 27 degrees (with a "real feel" of 35) and a projected high of 69 (which, if it's like the last few day's projected highs we will actually hit somewhere in the high 70s).
Posted without comment, in re the Satanist Monument in OK: "... If by religion the Founders [of America] meant 'any system of belief in a supernatural power,' it's hard to see how the Satanists can be denied," Fischer writes. "But if by religion [they] meant 'Christianity' and its various denominations, then the answer to this problem is quite...
Ah - the benefits of working close to, but not at, home. I stopped in for lunch at my apartment and flipped my pot roast (which sounds like it should be a euphemism, but it isn't) and then left, leaving my dogs to deal with the smell of roasting beef all day.
