My New Favorite Blog

I am hopelessly addicted to blogs...not just the sewing ones either. I don't know how I found this one, but "Things I Want to Punch in the Face" has been making me ROTFLMAO for days. Note to Erin...you will love this blog...go check it out! Now she could probably do a rant about people who use acronyms like this...that would be good. She takes the everyday things that bug the $%^& out of all of us and tells it how it really is. I like that. Not too much going on in the sewing front. The studio is still a disaster...I have done some embroidery and traced a BWOF T shirt, but I have been otherwise occupied with other aspects of my life. We had to do some major shopping yesterday as Mother Hubbard's cupboard was getting a little bare. We picked up some fun things too. Tom wanted an atomic clock with an inside/outside thermometer for the trailer. His Dad bought one at Walmart, so we found a nice faux woodgrain one that looks great above the sofa sleeper. I found DVD's at Big Lots for $3.00, so I picked up "Guess Who's Coming to Dinner" (the original with Spencer Tracy, Katherine Hepburn and Sydney Poitier...not the Ashton Kutcher version); "The Dirty Dozen" for Tom and "The World According to Garp" with Robin Williams. The first time I saw this movie back in the 80's, I thought "What an odd little movie"...I didn't quite get it. Subsequently I have seen it a few times over the years and last night when we watched it, I think I finally understood it. Maybe I needed more life experience to relate to it. John Irving is a little deep at times. I love John Lithgow's performance as Roberta...what an actor! We took Barbie back to her rightful owner with her new wardrobe. She was thrilled and it made the project so worthwhile! I worked an extra shift this week due to illness and am dreaming of working in the garden when the weather turns nice again. So much to do...so little time!!!

Thanks for the shoutout! I totally appreciate spreading the punch love. And yes, acronyms are on the list. :)

I checked out Jennifer's blog. It's great!! Thanks. I like to read all types of blogs, as well. I like to blog about different topics sometimes. I try to keep it about sewing most of the time because most of my followers are sewists.

Your welcome Jennifer...thanks for giving voice to things that make me crazy...humor helps lighten the urge to choke something! I try to include things about my sewing adventures too Julia, but I figure my blog is kind of my diary, (which makes you all voyeurs!!!) so I write about whatever is on my mind at the moment. It's kind of fun (for me) to read back and remember...I am getting old, you know! :)

I'm anxious now to read Jennifer's thoughts. Anything but depressing news.

Sounds like a must-read for my off-beat sense of humor :) ! I'm off to check it out now, Mary.
