The Weekly Read: No One Cares What You Had for Lunch – 100 Ideas for Your Blog by: Margaret Mason
I thought this book was great for ideas.  Check out my review on my Goodreads page.

The Weekly Music: Keith Urban – Only You Can Love Me This Way
Keith was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week and played the song.  I thought it was lovely.

The Weekly Movies: Jury Duty – One of my favorite old Pauly Shore movies.  I love his little sidekick dog named Peanut.  I also like Sean Whalen who plays Carl Wayne Bishop in the movie.  He’s got such a creepy look to him….

I also watched Enchanted staring Amy Adams & Patrick Dempsey.  I thought it was a really cute movie.  Though I felt bad for the poor little chipmunk Pip who kept trying to warn Giselle throughout the movie.

The Weekly Time Waster: Michael & I went to the Times Union Job Fair.  They have it a few times though-out the year at a local hotel.  We’re disappointed with it every-time we go, yet we continue to go each time they have it.  Out of about 80 companies that were represented I gave out 1 resume.  You find companies that say “Here’s our web address, go there to apply” (Why do they pay the astronomical $$ to rent the booth to say this) or companies looking for very specialized positions such as Doctors and RN’s.  Then there are the financial services companies that want you to sell investment products and insurance.  We avoid those like the plague.  There was a bank that’s always been there in the past I wanted to introduce Michael to, but of course they weren’t there.  I gave my one resume to a bank in case you were wondering.  (When I gave it to him, he told me to go online and apply)

The Weekly Downer: Watching people I call friends behave like children because they weren’t happy with election results.  No politician is perfect.  We’re adults.  We can agree to disagree without it turning into a blow out.

The Weekly Special Mention: Goes out to my newish friend Ellie – Kudos to you for being able to discuss a hot button political issue like an adult.  Not sure I agree with you, but we can agree to disagree.  🙂  I am trying to learn more about the details of the issue we discussed.

The Weekly Worst Piece of Crap on TV: The Bachelor – What a bunch of needy pathetic women.

The Weekly Tea: The Whistling Kettle’s Strawberry Pepper tea

The Weekly Food: Chicken, Bacon, Roasted Red Pepper Crepe from The Whistling Kettle in Ballston Spa, NY

The Weekly Amazing Fact: New York City has 722 miles of subway track.

The Weekly Birthdays: Mark Rogers, Meghan Sharp, Dan Boyd, Melissa Lane & Ryan McCann

The Weekly No-Shit Moment: Holy Schnike’s Trader Joe’s Wasabi Mayo is HOT!!! Though I might have to try their Wasabi Sliders Recipe….

The Weekly Concert: Joshua Radin & Cavo at The Hard Rock Cafe in Times Square – NYC
What a great time!!!  I’m going to tell you more about our trip next week, so stay tuned 😉

The Weekly Activity: Coming up with blog ideas.  It’s not nearly as easy as I thought it would be….

The Weekly Shoes: For half of the week it was my slippers.  Is it weird that I really like slippers that have leather bottoms?  I like them because I tend to trip on carpets with rubber soled ones….
For our trip to NYC I wore my high heeled black boots which usually aren’t a problem.  I don’t think the boots were the problem, but I think my Extra thick Thorlo running socks were.  I got a blister.  Boo!!

The Weekly new people I’ve found on Twitter: Joshua Radin Greeblemonkey and Barbara Walters
