I thoroughly enjoyed having a house full of giggly girls at my house last night. I’ve known most of them since they were little and the other two girls, Kelsey and Morgan, are just two of the sweetest kids around. I’m glad the DQ has some good friends like them.
When the Manchild was younger, he loved that show Courage The Cowardly Dog on Cartoon Network. I remember one time he was watching it and he was saying “Mom, you have to see this” and I was all “Oh puh-leeeeaze” but I watched it anyway to humor my kid. I ended up nearly wetting my pants laughing cause that is one funny show. (It was the one where the goose fell in love with Muriel).
I hadn’t seen Courage in ages until today. #2 was watching it and I swear, Courage and Eustis were just plain killin’ me.
I can’t profess the same affection for Cartoon Network’s Total Drama Island. That show makes me curse.
Ricky Gervais was on Letterman last night. Ricky and the Gentleman Formerly Known As My Boss remind me a ton of each other. ‘Cept the GFKAMB isn’t British. Ricky G. is a funny man. The GFKAMB is also a funny man. I’m not sure what it is but, yeah. (That phrase sounds like something the Drama Queen would say…but yaaah)
I for real thought that Gary Tuchman was gonna die live on television last night trying to show us just how powerful Hurricane Ike’s winds were. I bet Anderson Cooper would be really pissed off if somebody else dies live on the air before he does. I did think millions of people were gonna witness ol’ Gar’ getting his arse blowed to Glow-ry right there in front of our eyes though.
I texted Cuzzin Sharon in Houston to see if she had evacuated and she hadn’t. She texted me early this morning and said that she had the windows open and she was reading a book and sorta enjoying the whole thing. The funny thing is I remember when Hurricane Alicia hit Houston back in the early 80’s, Sharon telling of sitting on her back porch, reading a book. I’ve never known Cuzzin Sharon to be without a book.
I should start reading again. I used to read a lot but somewhere along the turn of the century, my ability to sit down and read a book went out the window. I mean, I can still read but, I got to where I would skim through and not really read stuff. Maybe I should try again. Donna was talking about some Henry David Thoreau book yesterday that sounded interesting. Note to self….two words Library Card.
I didn’t do nary a thing today and it was really nice to do nary a thing. I did get a haircut but I didn’t get cullah put on so it didn’t take long. I didn’t feel like I had something I needed to be doing and there was something about that that was just a good feeling. I haven’t felt that in years and years.
It ocurred to me while I was out and about a little bit ago that I’m now residing in the same area I resided in when I first married in 1989. This area has grown a bit but there are still things here that were here then, like the Kroger I used to go to as a newlywed and the laundromat we used to to go to before we had a washer and dryer. Something about that is a little ironic. Started my grown up life in this little area and it’s like the second round of my grown-up life is beginning in the same spot. Kinda bizarre. Not really, but, it gives me pause.
