It’s Friday so you know what that means!  It’s time to recap the week ending January 29th, 2010

The Weekly Read: The Road by: Cormac McCarthy
I like it so far.  It’s weird that it doesn’t have chapters.  It’s about a man and his son who are walking through burned America.  It’s got a kind of “War of the Worlds” kind of feel to it so far without the aliens.  It’s an “Every man for himself” kind of thing.

The Weekly Music: I’ve had a song in my head “I’ve got a feeling, that tonight’s gonna be a good night”  but I don’t know who sings it or what it’s called….

The Weekly Movie: I caught Catch Me If You Can on tv one night.  I really like this movie.  Love the story it’s based on.  I hear there’s an 18 year old kid in the news right now that’s eluding the police like Frank did.

The Weekly Time Waster: Listening to all the applause during the one hour and nine minute State of the Union address….  Every other sentence they clapped.  Let the man speak!  Stand up, sit down, stand up, sit down, up, down, up, down – it was like being in church!! Oh, and while I was searching for the link for the State of the Union I found one for the State of the Union 2010 drinking game….

The Weekly Tea: I’m still drinking my Strawberry Pepper tea from The Whistling Kettle….

The Weekly Food: I made Chicken with Dumplings, Lazy Chicken Soup (which is me using College Inn broth and chopping up celery, carrots, and mushrooms in it and adding noodles), and Michael made chicken wings with Brooks BBQ Wing Sauce for the first time.  All were delicious!!

The Weekly Amazing Fact: Polar bears can eat as many as 86 penguins in a single sitting.  Can we say BURP!

The Weekly Birthdays: Lee Skarshinski, Bert LeCato of InTune Guitar Picks, Catherine Butler, Jen Segala & Tim McCann – Happy Birthday to all of you!!  🙂

The Weekly new people I’ve found on Twitter: Christa Watsonmy friend John Jordan is friends with her and met her last week in Vegas.  He said she’s pretty cool.  Theresa Setzer – I met her at tonight’s Tweetup and she seemed really nice 🙂  Brianne Baggetta I don’t know her really well yet, but according to some close sources she’s cool.  Mary Hibbs AKA The Provident Woman I really like her blog!!

The Weekly Charity I’m Pimping: My friend Donna and her little boy Brendan will be walking in the March of Dimes – March for Babies in April and I’d love to see her reach her $2,000 goal.  Brendan was born pre-mature and is such a strong handsome young boy now 🙂  Please donate to them here.

Weekly Grand Totals:
Tickets Earned at Dave & Busters in NYC:
1,070 (I forgot to put this up last week)
Number of Day’s we’ve eaten chicken this week: 4 (at least)
Number of items out of the library at this time: 30
Number of loads of laundry done: 4
Number of hours slept: Not nearly enough….  (Here come the vampire comments)  😉

Last year I read a blog that mentioned the blogger’s favorite websites.  I figured why hoard them when I can share them with you!  Here’s a compilation of some of my favorites.  Over time I hope to add to it.  I want to know what some of your favorite websites are too!  Comment away!!

Facebook
If you don’t know what Facebook is I’m guessing you live under a rock and don’t have a computer.  If that’s the case, you’re not reading this….   Have I lost it?  I’m talking to an invisible person….
While you’re over there check out the new page I made Rose’s Recipe Group.  Moving on >>>

MySpace
You won’t find me there quite so often, but I still visit on occasion to check out the blogs.  KTPP, Namaste Theorist, The Dish From The Spoon and The Carcass Cadaver are some of my favorites 🙂

Twitter
Now I’ll start explaining the sites better.  Twitter is basically a status update about what you’re up to.  What are you reading, what are you watching, who’s annoying you at work, what you’re making for dinner – basically anything you want to tell your followers.  The catch?  You only have 140 characters to get your point across.
Some of my favorite people to follow are:
Albany-ish: Michael Henry, Kristi Gustafson, Andrew BaderaEllie, Jerry, Dom, Emily, Albany Kelly, Cute Ella, Swilly, John Jordan, Cassie Cramer, Terri Rossi Albany/Saratoga Realtor, Tweet Up Albany This is our local Tweetup Group!!, Marcus Molinaro – NYS Assemblyman I went to high school with, Meg Sharp, Bill Swallow
Non Local Cool Peeps: Lone Pine Photo Great Photographer in GA, St. Simon’s Elopments If you want a beautiful place to get married, contact Miss. Carla, Shit My Dad Says HILARIOUS!!, In Tune Guitar Picks Michael’s cousin & her husband manufacture guitar picks – cool huh?, Chris Cactus – great blogger
Celebrities: Megan Ward Kate from General Hospital, Scott Reeves Steven Webber on General Hospital, Logan Neitzel runner up on Project Runway, Carol Hannah Whitfield runner up on Project Runway, Alyssa Milano from Who’s the Boss?  and Charmed, Katey Segal from Son’s of Anarchy – AKA Peg Bundy from Married with Children, Carolyn Hennesey Diane from General Hospital – Also on CougarTown, Sutter Ink Creator of Son’s of Anarchy, Sarah Joy Brown was Claudia on General Hospital, Nancy Lee Grahn Alexis on General Hospital, Derk Cheetwood Max on General Hospital, Nia Vardalos from My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Peter Facinelli Carlisle Cullen from the Twilight series – Also was on Fast Lane

WordPress
Obviously I spend time here everyday.  So read my blog, subscribe to my blog, comment on my blog….  And while you’re over there check out Michael’s blog The World Through My Lens, Courtney’s Blog Cute~Ella is Bold, and Cassie’s Blog No Day But Today.  There is one other blogger that really amuses me.  Check out Rude Cactus.

Goodreads
I like to read, though I don’t do it as much as I’d like.  Once I discovered this site it became a place to keep track of what I’ve read, what I’m reading, and what I want to read.  Check it out.  I enjoying seeing what books my friends like and don’t like.  I won’t waste my time on a book my friends hated….

Paperback Swap
I don’t know about you, but I hate spending so much money on books.  Paperback Swap is an online community book exchange.  You pay to ship people your books, they pay to ship their books to you.  You earn credits for every book you’ve mailed and can use those credits to request other books.  The only criteria I’ve learned to ask on this site is if the book is from a smoke free environment.

Meetup
Meetup is a great site to get to know people with similar interests.  Awesome for someone who has moved to a new city and/or wants to make friends.  You can join groups all over the country.  If you’re in the Capital Region some of my favorite groups are No Destination which is a motorcycle group, The Capital Region Photography Meetup Group which is Michael’s photography group, and Fun, Fearless Females which is a woman’s group.

Pandora Radio
Panora is a great online radio site.  Basically you search for an artist you like and it will play you music from that artist and other artists they think are similar that you may like also.  It’s a nice way to get introduced to new music.

IMDB: Internet Movie Database
This site is great to research movies, or search for movies based on an actor or actress you like.

Wikipedia
You can research almost anyone or anything on this website.  It isn’t always 100% accurate because content can be updated and changed by the public.  Usually it’s pretty good though for a fast answer.

LaDorkas – National Multiple Sclerosis Walk
These women are incredible and walking for a good cause.
Please donate whatever you can.  They have a hefty goal.
Every dollar gets them closer to a cure for MS.

Brooks BBQ
If you live in NY, then there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Brooks House of BBQ.  They come to many churches and schools in Upstate, NY for fundraisers.  That’s how we discovered them.  We eventually visited their restaurant in Oneonta, NY and we enjoyed it quite a bit.  On their website at the bottom you can click on BBQ Events to view their catering calendar.

Other sites I enjoy for shopping
:
Adagio Teas – Loose tea and teapots, etc.
Deals Plus+ – coupons and deals to over 15,000 stores you like to shop at – Best Buy, JoAnn’s, Michael’s, etc.
eBay – online auction site
Half – online bookstore – powered by eBay
New York & Co. – Women’s clothing
Pandora Jewelry – Charm Bracelets
Teavana – Loose tea and teapots, etc.

What are some of your favorite websites to visit?
