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!!!
