Monday Miscellany

Here are some things.

  •  Look – we had sun yesterday & today! I made Dr. take a picture of it. And tomorrow we’re going to have ice and/or snow and/or rain. They’re not really sure. You know I’ll report back to you about it.

  •  This morning I emailed Dr. M that I thought it was RUDE that it was 14 degrees when I left the house. I guess I wasn’t expecting it to be that cold. (A little voice inside my head is going, “hellooo silly girl - January in Ohio!”) Dr. M said that it was rude up at school too.
  •  I can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this on here, but I downloaded an audio book that I can only listen to while I’m exercising. So far it’s working – I’ve Gazelled four days in a row. It’s Guilty Pleasures - a vampire mystery book (the first one of the Anita Blake series). I find that listening to a book about vampires really encourages me to work out harder. Do I think I’m running away? Whatever works!
  •  In my car I’m listening to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I’m fascinated by the mystery in the book. I don’t know why I assumed it was an entirely different kind of book, but it’s right down my alley.
  •  I realized yesterday after I recorded the video that I actually don’t say, “remote” – I say “clicker.” I felt that was a vital item to clear up. I feel better now.
  •  I’ve been sitting here for 5 minutes & I have nothing else to say so I’m shutting up now.
Are you in the storm’s path? Inquiring minds want to know!


  1. we are going to get our coldest weather of the year so far. Guess I was a little pre-emptive about the roses. we are supposed to have a 40º temperature drop from high to low tomorrow. 40 frickin' degrees! in one day! it's supposed to last all week and maybe even snow on Friday. now, that is just wrong!

  2. Ohh I'm glade you're liking the Girld with the dragon tattoo.

    I say "Clicker" that or "Channel Exchanger", which drives my daughter's nuts.

  3. It was so nice to see the sun yesterday, even if its appearance was fleeting. We're to get snow tonight, 2 to 4 inches and then the big wallop tomorrow starting around 4 PM. I'm just tickled pink. Not. I think it's rude.

  4. I'm listening to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, too. I just started it.

    we're getting drizzling ice this morning. stay safe.

  5. I need to listen to content while I'm exercising. TV doesn't do it (too many commercial interruptions), and music isn't really helping, either. For some reason I can't sync the podcasts I downloaded from computer to ipod. Bleh. Oh well, I soldier on.

    I don't often suggest being rude, but I think it would be fair to be rude to the weather in return for its rudeness.

  6. The remote is known as the "flipper" at the manor.

  7. The sun!!! I can't wait until we see it more often. A friend recommended the series of books you are listening to in the car. I see one of them has been made into a movie already. I will have to read the books first.

  8. running away from vampires? *giggle* like you said, whatever works. ha. we're actually getting some cold temps here in texas, too! :)

  9. I say channel changer. And it IS rude to be so cold! And you really like the Dragon Tattoo book thingy? I think I've avoided it cuz it just seemed like everyone was reading it and I usually don't go for what everyone is reading ... but now I have to reconsider, cuz you aren't "everyone" either ...


Thanks for stopping by - I'd love to hear what you have to say!
