Anyhow I have been trying to limit myself to only clicking on one or two stories at any one sitting, so tonight's lucky gem was slightly lighter fare (unless you are the celebrity in question). Dionne Warwick has only $1,000 left and is filing for bankruptcy! Do you think any of her friends on THE network saw that coming? Oh Dionne, thank you for singing with that beautiful voice that, in 1979, truly made my ten year old self wonder if I would ever love again...since you absolutely would not. I thought I could sing like you, just because I knew the words.
I was assigned such a simple task this morning at Meals on Wheels that I actually scoffed, thinking I would be done in about ten minutes. Apparently I forgot that the amount of time it takes to prepare a food item is in a very delicate proportion to just how many servings are involved. It took me two hours to make 160 servings of creamed spinach. Plus, the 55 gallon drum of fresh spinach that I started with cooked down to about eight gallons. Moreover, I think I might have compounded my vacuum arm (sort of like tennis elbow, but not nearly as sporty), with a dash of stirring strain.
I hosted a baby shower here this past weekend, and my house is very clean. Yes, this is big news these shiny spots in our home. Certainly the rest of you have had those moments of "Huh, that does come clean afterall. I'd have tried sooner had I known." No? Just me? Liar.
Hmmm...I feel a little untethered without my stash of photos to guide me thru the random.
Oh, here's one...We were at the kids' orchestra rehearsal tonight when my friend's purse dumped all over the floor amidst the auditorium seats. I had a moment of panic, as I had some flashback to when we actually were jr high aged, as I feared for what might have hit the deck. Oops, just her grow a boyfriend...
That seemed to amuse the woman in front of us. As an extra bonus, she found a full size candy bar that we shared.
As I was wrapping a gift the other day, I was using some curling ribbon. I had a very fond memory of the first time my kids ever saw me curl ribbon, using only my bare hands and a pair of scissors. They thought it was some sort of magic. I am sorry to say that I haven't been that fascinating in a long time.
Maybe Stacy has some tricks up her sleeve...
