You Are Massachusetts
You are smart, serious, and quite traditional. You don’t have a lot of time for junk in your life.
It’s likely that you’re well-educated and hard-working. You live a very goal oriented life.
You are probably socially liberal, but personally quite conservative. You would never be described as wild.
But you’re more diverse than people give you credit for. You’re equally comfortable at a business meeting and at a rowdy sports game!

Yesterday I posted my 200th blog post!
Unfortunately I wasn’t around to pimp it like I wanted to,
so check it out today.
It was a good post that I put more time than usual into.
So far we’ve talked about quite a bit.
You’ve gotten to know some of my very important people.
You’ve been lectured by me to watch for motorcycles.
You’ve met my dog Isabella.
There are so many more things to come!

108 Degrees in the sun on Thursday!
The Weekly Re-cap: I told you about my library – my Quiet Home Away From Home and the 4th of July. I posted up my 1st poll – about your library use. I helped a friend interpret her dreams about tornadoes and told you the history behind soap operas. Last but certainly not least, I continued my interview series with an interview of my Mom 🙂
The Weekly Read: The Everything Blogging Book and Shift Your Habit.
The Weekly Music: EdXeno sang/rapped Vanilla Ice’s – Ice Ice Baby during karaoke at Elda’s on Lark and it was awesome!
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 🙂
The Weekly Downer: A baby bunny falling into the pool and ending up in the skimmer 😦
The Weekly Good Karma: Michael rescuing the bunny out of the skimmer and us getting to spend and hour or two with ‘Lucky’ before we released him back into the wild. Click the link – you know you want to! The bunny was so cute!
The Weekly Interesting Facts: Since we met Lucky why not learn about rabbits 🙂 Rabbit facts found here.
- A male rabbit is called a buck and a female rabbit is called a doe.
- A rabbit can see behind himself, without turning his head, but has a blind spot in front of his face.
- A rabbit sweats through the pads on its feet.
- Domestic rabbits cannot breed with wild rabbits.
- Rabbits are the most active at dawn and dusk.
- Rabbits can jump to a height of more than 36 inches.
- Rabbits can purr, just like a cat.
- Rabbits cannot vomit.
The Weekly Food: Steak, Portabellas and Zucchini on the grill and Chocolate Zucchini Bread.
The Weekly OMG: I swam in my pool for the first time this week!! This is the 4th summer I’ve owned my pool!
Yummy Coconut Birthday Cake!
The Weekly Birthdays: Ryan Jones, Erin Carlotto, Jean Languish, and Kevin Mowry. I hope you all have wonderful birthdays!! Leave a comment and tell me what you did to celebrate!
The Weekly Activity: Celebrating Independence Day. Bella & I also made a visit down to see Mom & Dad. Dad replaced the brake pads on my truck for me. Michael & I went out with some of the Times Union Bloggers. We started at the Albany Pump Station and moved on to Elda’s on Lark. A nice gathering of interesting people 🙂
The Weekly new people I’ve found on Twitter: DanielTosh, Albany_Weather, AlbanyJobs, YNNAlbany, Sue215, HunterMtn, SPAC_2010, and DeFrees.
The Weekly Charity I’m Pimping: LaDorka’s National MS Walk.
Isabella's 1st Birthday
The Weekly Countdown: Isabella’s 3rd Birthday: 16 Days.
The Weekly Hypothetical: You’re a gossip type – how long do you wait until a person walks out of a room to trash talk them?
The Weekly Not-So-Hypothetical: What have you been doing to stay cool this week? (It was 108 degrees in the sun here today!!)

Do you utilize your local library?
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?
