Well, I trust your Thanksgiving was better than Tiger’s…
FYI, I did make the bread sauce after all because, as they say in the old country;
“My eyes are bigger than my belly”
Now I am completely over turkey leftovers and feeling slightly appalled that we will be ramping up for the same meal, in essence, just a few weeks from now. Perhaps a lovely Christmas Roast, what are those ones that have the bones going all the way round the outside? And some Yorkshire Puddings would be nice. Dear Lord, I have to stop talking about food…
Some Random Musings then before we enter the slam of December:
-Somehow, these “Bills”, especially the 1,000 + page ones, getting passed over weekends seem a little shady to me. I don’t think I want monumentally important decisions being reached by a room-full of tired people that would much rather be home with their families (or mistresses), or just relaxing in bed with a good book (or mistress).
– can we please come up with something new to replace “LET’S GIVE IT UP FOR….” when asking audiences to applaud? Doesn’t this date back to Arsenio Hall?! Even if we just return to “I am thrilled to introduce…” or “join me in welcoming…” or …whatever, I’m open to suggestion.
– If one more person on television says “you’re mah brothah from anotha mothah” I’m going to throw something.
-I know this is a tad boring, but in light of the holiday season being upon us, honestly-WHAT is with the ludicrous plastic clam shells on everything? The tiniest, most innocuous items are being packaged in containers that could travel to outer space and back. Why should opening a tube of hair serum involve the very real possibility of stabbing yourself? Who is planning on tampering with camera batteries?? NOT to mention how incredibly toxic all these jaggedly cut-up, bloodied trappings are for the environment. Or the ridiculous amount of space they eat up in shipping.
Paper hats off to Amazon for their Frustration Free Packaging InitiativeHow genius is Jeff Bezos? I love that guy. He and the Dyson Dude.
-So I’m willing to pay you at this point to just suggest, let’s say, YOUR top 25 Apps. for iPhones. I’m so daunted by the 70,000 there are to choose from, I can’t even bring myself to go on the Apps page. I feel like a sad little Amish girl with my 9 Apps. Practically an App. Virgin.
Even the Koi in my “Koi Pond” App. are looking up at me like “can’t you get some new friends, Lady? We’re full”
I’m debating “Zombie Pizza”…what say you??
.-Lastly, I hate to admit it but I am bailing on Barbara Kingsolver’s new book “The Lacuna” after 179 pages.
Life is too short.
