Mark is somewhat addicted to the show FIGHT QUEST on the Discovery Channel.

I got to get me one of those…oh wait!
Ok, Linda Lu just showed me this video David Blaine Street Magic courtesy of YouTube.
“What the F David Blaine!”
There are about four different videos in case you need more. And you will, oh yes you will.
“Whatcha wanna do for dinner?”
“I dunno, what do you want to do?”
“Doesn’t matter, should we go out?”
“I dunno, where do you want…”
AAAAUGH! I went to the freezer instead and pulled out some pork chops, grabbed the snow peas and garlic sauce from the fridge and water chestnuts and rice from the cupboard and made dinner instead. Geez.
So now the conversation turns to what we want to do tonight. Insert “do tonight” for “dinner” and you pretty much see how our evening is going.
I decided to create confections instead.
(Wee layers of my Chautauqua County Fair Blue Ribbon Homemade Double Chocolate Brownies between the nectar of the Gods—Nutella.)
And my Cranberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies. I need to frost these with a layer of melty white chocolate though.
I’m waaaay behind on my New Yorker reading. I made it through two of them since taking this photo this weekend.
I have to say, I love the comment Swampcrone (from Life, Yarn and Baby Poop) left on the photo.
“It is the New Yorker though… I believe they multiply like bunnies. “
I took the irises out of the LARGE bouquet I brought home from my work event Saturday evening. Turns out there were exactly, you guessed it 27 irises in all! My they look pretty all together.
Woo hoo! Elizabeth and her blog Garden Rant made it in the Washington Post today!
“I think that’s the mystique of blogging,” said Elizabeth Licata, gardener and blogger. “These people are your friends, and they care about your garden, even though you’ve never met them and they’ll never see your garden. That’s kind of interesting. Astounding.”
A year ago, Licata became the fourth member of a group of garden bloggers with an attitude. Garden Rant ( http://www.gardenrant.com), started in mid-2006, is one of my favorites: A blend of gossip, news, crusade and, yes, raw rant, it blows the cobwebs out of gardening’s mustier corners.
Elizabeth blogs personally over at Gardening While Intoxicated.
Licata joined Amy Stewart, Michele Owens and Susan Harris. Licata lives in Buffalo, Owens in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Harris in Takoma Park and Stewart in Eureka, Calif., but this being the Internet, their home towns are little more than street signs in their virtual community.
I usually take out these Washington Post links when quoting articles in my blog, but the one above stuck me as interesting. You mean to tell me that Saratoga Springs, Takoma Park and Eureka, Calif all have tags attached to them, but BUFFALO, NY doesn’t? Really? Very interesting.
I need to get out of this shittastic mood. My choices are my own. No one to blame. Just me, pretending to live in the future ignoring the reality of my present.
Your inhibitions may manifest themselves in your experience strongly today by interfering with your ability to determinedly pursue your dreams. You may consciously or unconsciously hold yourself back and then justify your hesitation by citing concerns related to security and the preservation of your well-being. However, this reservation may hinder rather than help you.
The standard for brides today, says Nicolai, “is red carpet-worthy good looks.” Not only can that lead to unrealistic expectations and unnecessary stress for brides-to-be but, sometimes, to unhealthy behavior as well.
The only one putting pressure on you is you if you feel pressure. The end.
Errrr. I’m not so sure I agree. I just don’t see the need for a flu shot. If you get the flu, you get the flu and it sucks and you get over the flu. Why do we need to inject ourselves with the virus if some of us might not even get the virus?
I’ve never had the flu shot. Not really keen on getting one either. It wouldn’t have helped me get over my 3 week illness at the end/beginning of the year. And I’m really not too sure I like the idea of it being recommended for all kids, especially if I have my own someday. Recommending leads to mandating, so long as daycare/preschool/schools are concerned.
But children who stay home sick from school cause parents to stay home, so reducing the illness in this group should cut down days of lost work, some experts said.
The article above is fine, until it gets to the sentence above. So parents need to give their children the flu shot so they can cut down on days of lost work (according to some experts?) Is this really a reason to inject someone with a virus? To cut down on sick days? Shouldn’t a vaccination have a wee bit higher standard that cutting down on a sick day?
I just don’t know…the flu shot didn’t even protect from strains of the flu found this year, I just wonder if it is really necessary.
What do YOU think?
Did you get the flu shot this year? Did you get the flu shots for your children?
