I am trying out Google Plus.  I like the idea of facebook but I hate facebook.  I hate the layout, I hate how the security options are so hidden and I hate all the games.  So, I'm hoping I won't hate google as much. 

 

Life is much easier now that I'm taking Ambien more often.  The down side is that I'm taking Ambien more often.  If anyone has a good recipe for watermelon soup, share it. Thanks.

May is when I have my yearly nervous breakdown.   I cannot wait until we retire and the children are out of the house so that I can spend the month abroad.  There's just too much junk in this month.

 

Plus, I'm sick.  bleh.

I had my very favorite people come down to visit over the weekend.  We went to the Strawberry Festival which more fun than I had expected it to be.  I had some delicious strawberry shortcake on a stick.  The outside was nicely deepfried and crunchy and the strawberry were still a little frozen.  Very refreshing and yummy.

The next day we went to the Renaissance Festival.  I do so enjoy them.  The characters and the singing and the drinking and the wares to be hawked.  Lots of fun.  One day I hope to make it up to the Georgia one.  Maybe I can take a road trip with friends and go to the NY or Texas one.  We shall see.

I also ended up finishing two books on Sunday.  They were two very refreshing urban fantasies.  One is Uprising: Vampire Federation by Sean McCabe and the other is Bloodshot by Cherie Priest.  I also finished up the The Night Angel Trilogy by Brent Weeks.  Thanks again for bringing those books down, Doozer!  

And today I will be going to the Korean market with my mother.  So far, this week is going well.

President's Day has given me a very lovely three day weekend.  The only draw back is the lack of sleep.  I got to see my youngest eat some insects which was fun for me but not so much fun for him.  I also started watching Castle and Being Human.  I like them both.  I think I like Being Human better but...we'll see.  The weekend also brought the news that Becky Herbst has been rehired.  I am over the moon with this news.  I guess I won't have to stop watch GH afterall.  And my plans for next weekend are coming along.  Good stuff all around.

I am sad that I cannot find many Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place or Two Guys and a Girl clips on the net.  I love, love this show.  It and Sports Night are the only shows that I have been crushed when they were cancelled.  I looked on amazon to see if I could buy the dvds since netflix doesn't have them only to find that they are out of stock.  Who knows when they'll have anymore in.  I might have to search on ebay.

I haven't even left for my friend's house and I'm starting to get stuffy.  I think I'm healed enough to see the allergist.  That is definitely something I will do this year, along with finding a dentist.  I think my wisdom teeth need to come out.  Luckily I just have the two on top but they are pushing my teeth closer together.  We'll see.

 

There are some Xbox Kinect games that aren't really games.  One...The Biggest Loser.  I tried out the demo and it kicked my butt.  That is definitely an exercise program.

My eye has been hurting near the scar.  If I press on the scar you can hear a squiggy-squiggy noise.  I see the doctor in February.  I hope it's just the weather.  Every night the eyelashes of that eye are white tipped.  I don't know what it is.  It's odd.  I also think the tube is slowly coming out.  I don't know.  Maybe I should call the doctor but I most likely will not.

I found an extension for livejournal.  Scribefire is okay, unfortunately it doesn't have the little extras that I like like choosing my icon and my location or feeling or music.  Oh well.

This weather is killing my joints.  At least I'm blaming the weather.  I was up at 3 this morning because my knees were hurting.  The night before it was my hips.  Unfortunately, advil doesn't work as well as I want it to so I just don't take it.

I've been reading way too much lately and putting off chores.  >.>

I've been using Mederma on my new scar.  I'm going to see if it works.  I think it's looking better, but it could just be that I want it to and so it is.  Having grown up with scars on my face, this new one doesn't really bother me, ,especially since it's near my eye and my glasses kind of cover it up.  But I bought some Mederma anyway to try it.  I wish this stuff was around when I was self conscious about my scars.  Luckily, I'm not anymore.

Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since I posted anything. The end of last year was a little crazy and now that I'm using Chrome, I find that I am not posting much since I can't find an addon like Deepest Sender (Mozilla). I love that addon.

I hope to post more often here. Here's to a new year!

Sometimes it's okay to be angry and irritable. I wish more people would realize this and leave you alone when you are. *sigh*

I'm really missing Deepest Sender. I'm using Chrome right now. I am enjoying Chrome but it doesn't seem to have a live journal app. Maybe I'll get firefox, but it seems silly to get it just for one app.

I haven't been reading much lately.  I think it's because my sleeping has been so off lately.  I'm having a hard time focusing on anything and remembering to do stuff.  It's very, very  frustrating that I can't seem to remember things from conversation, from lists, from anything in particular.  I just need to get my sleep back in order.

Anyway, on to the books.Collapse )

September is the start of so many wonderful things.  Football season. Network serials return.  The Fall brings about pollen and puffy, dry, watery, itchy eyes and stuffy nose and sneezying.  ugh

I've been reading way too many anthologies.  Too many anothologies.  I need to find a novel to read.  Hmmm.

I'm loving Nikita.  =)

I've bought several several used books in the past week.  It makes me happy.  I love buying used books.  Unfortunately, there isn't a used book store where I live so I usually get books from the Friends of the Library which is a great group and I encourage anyone who buys used books to support them.  They provide wonderful and nice things for your local library.

The hub has given me whatever illness he has.  I'm not happy.  Unfortunately, it looks as though the boys are getting sick as well.  ugh

And my stupid list has failed me by renumbering my books. *sigh* And I can't fix it in the edit because it's a stupid grid.

The family trip to Washington DC went off without a hitch.  The weather was nice.  It was noticeably cooler and drier than Florida.  I don't think we could have walked around outside, in the sun for four hours down here with out major breakdowns.

I must say that Washington DC is an affordable vacation.  Most touristy things are free.  The food and water, on the other hand, are pretty pricey and most places don't allow water or even empty bottles inside which sucks.  But it was still a very nice visit and the the length of the visit was perfect.  I was starting to get annoyed with the crowds and people on the last day.

Now that I'm back, I'm fighting off a sore throat.  Ugh.

I spent a wonderful weekend with friends.  We went tubing and ate BBQ and read and cooked and just enjoyed the start of summer.  Now, I'm paying for all the time I spent out in the country air.  The funny thing is is that I really didn't spend that much time outside.  bleh.  And this morning I went for a walk with Penny and the boys which did not help my allergies.  I will have to spend the rest of this week indoors so I can feel good when we go up north.

Summer time is the time to catch up on television.  I'm watching Robin Hood, Merlin, Skins, and the IT Crowd on netflix.  And I'm watching Modern Family and Lie To Me on tv.  I'm hoping that I can squeeze in the first season of Castle but I have been a little distracted with odd episodes of Buffy and Angel and Bones.

I'm also rereading some of my favorite books which means my pile of new stuff is getting bigger.  Luckily, it's the summer and I feel like I have more time to read even though I really don't do anything differently during the year.  Currently, I'm in the middle of five books and they're all easy reads...so far.

I am in the middle of Wild Ride by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer.  What a disappointing book.   It's basically just an empty action flick of a book with no real character development.  I can't even sympathize with most of them because I find them vapid and dim witted.  There is some back story to the main characters that's supposed to make you find them likeable but they just never really develop beyond vehicles to progess the cliched plot twists.  And this book more than the previous two, I think, you can really tell that there are 2 different writers writing the story.  It's just a big let down from the very funny and touching and crazy Agnes and the Hitman.  Oh well.

This is birthday week.  I'm hoping everything will be laid back.  So far, so good.  My kitchen reorganization is going very well.  My counters are clutter free for the most part.  It almost makes me want to bake...almost.

Community is another show that I stopped watching because the characters were just tiring to watch every week.  But I haven't programmed my DVR to stop recording the show so every week I have to delete it.  Before deleting the episodes, I always read the description in case I might want to take a peek at it.  This last episode made me glad that I still record this show.  It's the paint ball episode and it's so funny and just great.  The hub says that there were several movie quotes  and references in the episode, which I thought there were but I'm so bad at remembering stuff like that that I couldn't say for sure. 

On another note, I picked out my birthday/mother's day gift (since it's too big of a purchase for just one day) over the weekend.  It's a new refridgerator.  I'm not getting it until June 1st so that gives me plenty of time to clean out my old one and to clean the sides of the stove next to it.  Ugh.  I'm so excited.

After not watching Fringe since 3 episodes before the first season finale, I have decided to watch last week's episode from the website.  Why?  Because it's one of those gimmicky episodes and it piqued my interest.  I do like this show, but like many of J.J. Abrams' shows, they get to be too drawn out and tension-filled for my taste.
