|i took this photo Friday of Brian before he headed out for his debut as a jazz drummer in his new band.|
Best thing that happened: Our Seattle Seahawks won their playoff game against the Saints. It would be so surprising if they don't win the SuperBowl this year because they are so amazing that i have only missed watching two games all season.
Book: Still reading Goldfinch and The Reason I Jump. I've not been reading that much lately.
Bitch of the Week: no secret for Facebookers. My Kindle Fire is busted after only 2 years. I've been all over Amazon about it with the help of some yaya friends.... to no avail. I know why i think: Though i shop often on Amazon for all kinds of things (I even bought an AllClad saute pan from Amazon) i didn't buy very many e-books. And so they don't make money from me since they were only breaking even when they sold those Kindle Fires. At least that's what i remember reading.
Golden Globes: I watched last night and they were fairly boring. Though i rarely miss the Academy Awards i've never watched the Globes. If i were African American i would be pissed too. Everybody got passed up except for Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave. And when the actor's name's were called it seemed like a half mile trek to the stage unless you were Meryl Streep (who had a front row table.) None of the actors were as drunk as i wanted them to be, though i have to say Jacqueline Bisset probably woke up embarrassed this morning. Glad i didn't live blog them. But i DO plan on live blogging the Academy Awards here again.
What i'm looking forward to: BOWLING! in a few more weeks. I think i want our names to be You Mad Bro? or the SuperBowlers - in honor of the Seahawks. (Right now we're called Average White Bowlers.)
What i wouldn't mind doing, but i probably won't: Going to see the movie American Hustle.
My latest favorite Celebrity: Jimmy Fallon. I have NEVER liked Leno even before he screwed over Conan O'Brien. I'm looking forward to Fallon taking over.
Excited about: Breaking Bad! We're on episode 7 of Season 1. We love this show!
Ambivalent: The State Legislative session (starts today); going to the YMCA; Facebook; cooking (since my husband is doing his weird de-tox diet), and because of that diet, i will also add eating. And last but not least.... this blog.
I wish it would: ....SNOW! It's been two years (over MLK weekend) since we had a good snow.
I love: Flowers in winter! louie/Sarah bought these as a hostess gift for my game night party with the galpals. I am going to replace them immediately when these die. Tulips are my favorite.
