The Weekly Charity I’m Pimping: As part of the Albany restaurant Dale Miller’s ongoing series of fundraising cocktail parties for area nonprofits, Kristi Gustafson and Steve Barnes will be guest bartenders from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Monday July 26th. Dale Miller will donate 25 percent of the food and beverage sales in the bar during that time to Equinox Inc., the community-services agency best known for its Thanksgiving dinner. You can RSVP on Facebook here.
The Weekly Countdown: 482 days until Breaking Dawn is released. How excited are you for this movie??
Weekly Grand Totals: I was awake for 36 hours straight and I finally crashed around midnight last night – hence why the weeklies are being published a bit later than usual. Than you for your understanding.
What are you doing this weekend?

The Weekly Time Waster: Google Chrome. I tried using it a few weeks ago and it kept slowing down my computer and crashing. So I stopped using it, but my Firefox kept getting hung up. It shouldn’t take 5 minutes for a page to load. It was worse than waiting for dial-up! You can’t imagine how many times I was ready to throw something! So yesterday I finally decided to uninstall Google Chrome and that seems to have been the problem! (Yeah, I know, you’re shocked, I’m not putting any links to Google Chrome because I don’t want to encourage ANYONE to install it!!)
The Weekly Downer: There never seems to be enough time to catch up on reading all the blogs I love!
The Weekly Worst Piece of Crap on TV: Wipeout – If I want to watch people run into walls and fall on their face, I can watch myself in a mirror….
The Weekly Activity: Job search (Times Union Job Fair) and blogging.
The Weekly new people I’ve found on Twitter: I created a new Twitter name GiveAwaysForYou to post up giveaway tweets so they don’t flood my Dozenroses13 feed. Hopefully one day I’ll be posting my own giveaways.
The Weekly Movie: We went to a pre-screened of the movie Cyrus. It had it’s funny moments for sure, but I think they could have done more with the story to make it more interesting or humorous. Not awesome but not bad either.
We also watched The Spy Next Door. I always like Jackie Chan movies
My title of this actually implies that I spend quite a bit of time in mine, but lately it’s been quite the opposite.
I tend to go online and search out books I’d like and I request them. When I get to the library, they scan my card and go to the reserved shelf and give me my stack. It’s great! I don’t need to search or go into “the stacks” at all.
Occasionally I do still take a wander up the aisles and scan through the new book shelf to see if anything catches my eye, but I usually have enough reserved that I can barely lift my back after I check them out….
Lately I’ve been reading (well it’s more like detailed skimming) books about blogging, job searching, management skills (just to keep me on my toes), cookbooks, and trivia type books.
Do you use your library?
Have you read anything good lately?

So next time you’re sitting home, bored with nothing to do – check out a meetup.com event and make some new friends
