The other day, I ate the most delicious pecan carmel apple turnover. It was so good! I went back to buy another a couple of days later but it seems the turnovers are all sold out by 9 am. My ever-widening ass thanked me for missing out.
Occasionally in the mornings, while I am doing my housework, I’ll turn on The Price Is Right. It reminds me of my childhood, I used to watch it with my Grandmother who lived with us while I was growing up. Most of the time I am glad that Drew Carey has replaced B*b Barker, Barker was becoming a cranky old b*stard. Does anyone else get as frustrated with some of the contestants as I do? Sometimes, I think they do not have a single brain cell in their heads and it puzzles me why they are even at the game show to begin with.
People who do not yield to emergency vehicles make me so angry! I want to shout at them, “pull the freak over and stop your vehicle! cant you see the flashing red, or blue and red lights??? What if that ambulance is going to save your kid’s life? or that fire-truck is going to your home to put out a raging fire because your hot-water tank exploded? or what if that police officer driving 80mph is on his way to save your trailer-trash sister from her whacked out meth-head boyfriend who is swinging an ax at her and calling her an alien from Mars? Gah!!!!! Pull Over!!!!!!!!! There should be jail time for the idiots that do not obey this law.
Whenever I come inside from being out in the freezing, cold winter days, I am thankful I have a very warm and draft-free, cozy house.
I think I blasted out one of the music speakers when I was cleaning house and blaring Def Leppard. Do you wanna rock?! Lets get,lets get, lets get rocked”
The other morning, I was in my bathroom getting ready for the day, and Marvin was in his usual place, flopped on the sink vanity. I spritzed myself with some ‘White Diamonds” parfume as a last finishing touch. Later that day, hubs came home from lunch and was sitting at the counter reading the paper and eating his sandwich. Marvin jumped up onto the stool next to him. Hubs looks down at Marv and gives Marvin a big sniff. He says, “hey, Marvin smells like you.”
I do not like Rachel Ray…..but not as much as I loathe Marta Stewart or Oprah. I prefer our local (well, sorta local, TULSA) News people at FOX23 News. I watch them in the morning and in the evening. Strange, but I like all the people at that News Station!
On SuperTuesday I ventured out to vote during the huge thunderstorms. I am a Republican. Our pickings are slim…..I do not like Huckabee, something about him gives me a feeling that he is untrustworthy or slick (more so than the rest of the politicians except Obama who I think has no business anywhere near the Whitehouse, Oprah endorsed or not) Plus I do not like Huckabee’s ears……they sit odd on his head.
Hillary Clinton was a huge winner in Oklahoma. My husband and Bubba both like her. All I’ll say is “she’s better than Obama.”
I was disappointed that McCain was the Republican winner in Oklahoma and not Romney……hohum. Politics suck.
Are my lungs ever going to return to normal? I am so sick and tired of this hacking. It needs to end soon.
I like watching Cash Cab on the Discovery Channel. Especially when the competitors are family members. I love it when they win!
Why is it, when people find out I do not work outside of the home anymore, they act like I live a life of leisure? I’ll agree, I got it pretty darn good but it’s not like I’m laying around on the sofa munching BonBons and waiting for the maid to show up. Geesh.
My latest reads.
I watched an interview a couple of weeks ago with Stephen King. He was discussing his new book, “Duma Key”. I like King. I think he is very intriguing and I enjoy his macabre, twisted thinking.
So, I checked out Lisey’s Story: By Stephen King. I am enjoying this dark and wonderful love story.
I also checked out Bloodstream By Tess Gerritsen. It is one of her earlier books that I have neglected to read.
The last book in my stack is Missing Pieces By Joy Fielding. Ever since I read her book, “Mad River Road”, I am a fan of her writings.
“The Accidental Housewife” was a cute read. But, “The Whole World Over” By Julia Glass bored me to tears the first chapter and I took it back to the library. I usually force myself to finish every book I start….I think it’s a control issue thing…..anyway, I still feel guilty about not reading that book but at the same time, glad I returned it and checked out this latest batch.
Thank goodness my insomnia has been back in full force. I am getting a lot of reading done……..I would much rather get some restful zzzzzzzzz’s but all this coughing makes for restless nights.
