I’m running so late!
I had an interview today. Wish me luck.
Cross your finger, cross your toes, cross everything you’ve got!!
The Weekly Read: I’ve been reading The Lovely Bones by Alice Sebold they’ve made a movie of the book that came out in theaters today. Hopefully I’ll get around to going to see it. (I tend to wait for the DVD more often than not)
The Weekly Music: We’ve been watching American Idol – need I say more? 95% of it is BAD with a capital B.
The Weekly Movie: I watched the movie Bride Wars. I liked it. It stared Kate Hudson and Anne Hathaway. It was a predictable movie about 2 best friends who end up having their weddings the same day at The Plaza Hotel.
I also watched Best Laid Plans. It stared Reese Witherspoon and had Josh Brolin in it as well. This movie basically asks the question “Ever feel like the world is conspiring against you?” It kept my attention. I probably would have enjoyed it more back in 1999 when it came out. Reese looked sooo young! She played her role well though.
The Weekly Worst Piece of Crap on TV: I watched some of The Bachelor the other night. One of the women got thrown off the show for having an “inapropriate” relationship with one of the crew members on the show. WTF? I guess you weren’t there to find your true love after all. She didn’t even try to deny it. She questioned why it was anyone’s business on the show though. LOL!!
The Weekly Schadenfreude: NYS Governor Patterson’s 15 year old son was picked up by the NYPD for being caught playing dice on the street in NYC while in the possession of a credit card that didn’t belong to him. News story here. Just goes to reinforce how unorganized Patterson is. He can’t even keep track of what his child is doing. I’ve never been a fan of his. I keep reminding myself that he was appointed when Spitzer resigned. He wasn’t elected to the post.
The Weekly Yummy Food: I made Orange-Glazed Pork Chops. I thought they were good. Michael didn’t care for them. The glaze is dijon mustard, orange marmalade and mandarin oranges. Not his thing I suppose, but I have enjoyed it many times. I also made Oven-baked Shrimp Risotto. This time Michael liked it too!
The Weekly Amazing Fact: What is know as a “French Kiss” in the English speaking world is known as an “English Kiss” in France.
The Weekly Activity: It wasn’t super exciting but we got up at 6AM to take friends to the airport. (Okay, got up is wrong, I was still awake) We ran a ton of errands after and accomplished quite a bit. Of course then we came home and crashed HARD.
The Weekly Cringe-Worthy Television: Didn’t we already talk about American Idol? The tryouts are just flat out painful to listen to!!
The Weekly new people I’ve found on Twitter: 511NY – They give traffic updates for the Capital Region.
The Weekly Hypothetical: If you and I were stranded on a desert island, what would we talk about? (other than how to get home….)
