I have spent some time thinking about the past year like where the hell did it go? What experiences made a difference to me? Who were the people that had an impact on my world? (You know the one that revolves around me.) Usually I just make a list in my journal or in my planner, this year I thought I would share it with you. So far I have just listed some random thoughts. Some of them I will come back to flesh out and some of them I won’t.

Happy Bunny “It’s All About Me.” - I like his attitude!

Under the Tuscan Sun - I have always wanted to go to Italy especially after seeing this movie back in like 2004. This year I got to go. It was fabulous. I had the best time ever and the country is absolutely gorgeous!

Jill Bennett “an intelligent, witty woman that is refreshingly full of candor, courage, and charisma.” I heart this woman!

Quote: The best day of your life is the one in which you decide your life is your own, no apologies, no excuses. ~ Dan Zadra

Song: Fall for you (Second Serenade), She never cried in front of me (Toby Keith) These were two of my favorite songs of the year that I listen to over and over again. No idea why really?

Bridget McManus - She makes me giggle!

Chelsea Handler - Gawd! I wish this woman was a lesbian! She is hilarious and she makes me think.

Quitting my job - actually only quit part of my job not because I didn't like doing it but just because I was tired of working 80 hours a week.

Writer's Strike – Caused me to discover WGN!

Fable 2 - I love this game. It is definitely in my top three of all time!

Merry Christmas to All!

Merry Christmas to all and to all a Happy New Year!

I spent another night in the hospital with my Grandpa. He spend the first three days there trying to get out of bed and has apparently, finally pooped himself out. So he slept all night, so I got some sleep myself as much as is possible in the hospital barklelounger chair thingy.

Still don't know for sure if he had a ministroke or just an upgrade in his already progressing Alzheimer's and probably we won't know ever.

My BFF grandma is home sick, but no new critter stories.

Brief Rant

I just read BLWE on AE from Friday, December 19 (My mother's birthday, Happy B-day Mom!)

Here's the thing. I just can't get even remotely excited about the upcoming season of TLW when I know there is no WGN. WTF??

I might read Scribegrrl; she is responsible for my finding WGN in the first place and I have read every other season from her; however, I have zero interest in watching anyone else but my terrible trio vlog it. In fact not really even interested in watching the show.

On a happy note I am interested in seeing Joss Whedon's new show, Dollhouse because I absolutely love me some Eliza. I could enjoy watching her read the phone book.

Energy drains:

Ok, so I read this article online somewhere awhile ago. don't remember when or where.

Seven Things That Sap Your Spiritual Energy:

1} Clutter (I can see that)
2} Loud Noises (Sure, definitely annoying ones)
3} Air Pollution (yuck)
4} Dehydration (Never a good thing)
5} Worrying (pointless activity which I don't do or recommend)
6} Television (Now they lost me)
7} Sleep Deprivation (Totally agree with this one)

Ok, I can definitely agree with six out of seven. Television really? I find my TV very relaxing, rewarding, and fulfilling. I could never give it up.
Promoting: No Place for Hate
Reading: Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
Writing: My Memoirs (It's all about me.)
Hearing: Christmas music mix
Watching: The Viotet Underground
Wearing: My Looney Tune Friends sweatshirt
Going: to bed Ciao!

Some random thoughts...

from last Friday.

Quote of the day:
‘Better to be a lion for a day than a sheep all your life.’
(Goodnight, Irene – Jan Burke)

Movie Review:
I saw part of the movie Dark Knight last night. I don’t get it? Unless you are like a ten year old boy or girl…What’s the appeal in a lot of blowing stuff up and killing people by blowing them up, or not in some cases. I’m pretty sure I won’t be seeing the sequel or the prequel. My ten year old nephew will be disappointed but I’ll be sitting this one out; he’s getting Dark Knight for Christmas but not from me.

Survivor: Gabon Earth’s Last Eden Finale:
How HOT is Corinne? And naughty, I mean nasty. Whatever. She is my new favorite person.

I don't like her hair in this picture but its the only picture I could find quickly. More on her and the season finale of my favorite show later.

Jill Bennett called ME a dumb ass!!!

Jill Bennett called me a Dumb Ass! I don’t think choosing not to vote in the presidential election makes me dumb or an ass. I made a conscious choice not to support any candidate at the polls because I didn’t like my choices. Why must I choose? I definitely believe my vote makes a difference which is why I didn’t cast it for someone I didn’t truly believe in.

I congratulate Barack Obama on his win and I hope he can make some positive changes by leading our country in a new direction. The way we have been headed really sucks!! Time will tell.

Dude! It's cold

Well, for Houston anyway. It snowed this afternoon like real flurries but nothing that stuck on the ground. The kind of snow that sticks on the ground and stuff almost never happens in Houston. In fact that only happened once in my life that I remember and we were not home. Ironically, we went to Colorado for a White Christmas. We made snow angels, went ice skating on a frozen pond on Christmas Eve and went skiing on Christmas Day. Memories...
This is me standing in the flurries. That lasted just long enough to snap off a few pics; then I got my ass back into the warm house.

I'm contemplating a name change; Not for me but for my blog. The current one doesn't really resonate with me anymore. Basically, I'm over it. But it was an improvement over the original title which turned out not to be so original.

TIVO -- Can I just tell you how much I love this invention? In fact I put it on my list of things I'm thankful for (is that bad?). I read Bridget McManus's blog this morning like I always do.
(My morning really sux when I awake to find there is no new Bridget blog to entertain me.)
Anyway, she is apparently attempting to cheer herself up by making a list of five things she has to be thankful for, so I have been thinking on this off and on all day in between my brief lectures on female reproduction (I was never so tired of talking about pussy -- maybe if I could use that word it would have been more fun). Anyway to make a long story drag on this is what I came up with at first. 1) the internet for introducing me to vlogs with hot lesbians I can daydream about
2)being able to control the heat/AC in my classroom 3) My electric blanket 4) living within walking distance to the grocery store 5) My Tivo In retrospect my list is maybe a bit shallow but that's what it looks like today. Tomorrow the possibilities are endless. Maybe I'll amend it. It's my list I can do that.


I'm off to watch Life.
Next time I might actually blog on one of my upcoming topics or NOT! Who knows?
