'News' Worthy? I Think Not...

Currently Reading: Still on Runaway Jury; I'm on Ch. 11. I also recieved in the mail a copy of Marianne Stephens' Second Sight Dating, which I won in her September Newsletter contest:) Looking forward to reading it next, and taking it on 'tour' with me. Spouse saw it and wondered if I'd signed up for a dating service, lol!

Word Count yesterday: Zero. The late start, plus the mountain of laundry and making backup discs took most of my time. And ran out of the CD-RW discs...darn the 15 CD PC Recovery discs at the bottom of the pile! But was able to get Class Reuinon saved, and Teacher's Pet was among the existing backup discs. Now to convince the spouse I need another package....


Okay; Letterman comes clean and now they're investigating whether or not there was any harrassment involved? Give me a break! What is this, a slow news week?

Other 'top stories' include Jon and Kate's fight over money. Who Cares? Give them their privacy for the kids' sake? And Jon...stay off the Insider...

Anti-aging Products. Face it ladies; ultimately gravity and genetics are going to win.

Thank God for the comic relief of Dave Price 'No Way Home' and my ability to change the channel or turn it off completely. Otherwise the H1N1 virus/vaccines issues would drive me nuts!

Reality TV:
I'm watching 'Next Iron Chef'; last year, I only caught the last few episodes. One of the chefs, 'Apple-something' not only broke the mixer, but had issues with the pasta roller. Slow down; Alton may kick you out for destroying the kitchen utensils! One of their challenges last night was to create dishes using some pretty strange items: Grasshoppers, jellyfish, chicken feet, cock's combs, unlaid eggs, stinky tofu, sea cucumber, eel, and 2 other items escaping my memory. The chef who got the ax was the one who hadn't a clue what to do with the grasshoppers. He used them mainly as a garnish, instead of an ingrediant. Didn't he ever watch 'Bizarre Foods'?

Woo Hoo!

Thanks for the props! I must say if I hear anymore about Jon and Kate I might rip my hair out. And Letterman, if it was harrassment we would have heard that first. Anything for a story.

Molly Daniels said...

There, I fixed it. Are ya happy now Kenzie? And he's looking into the comment thing.

That's true, Amber. I'd not thought of that.

Linda Kage said...

I'm thinking Jon needs to stay off the babysitter too! Hee hee, snort snort. But yeah, it must be a slow news week.

Thanks for mentioning my name on your blog. I feel like such a star.
