The Weekly Re-cap: We talked about the weather, Michael & I going out for a motorcycle ride, we wished Michael a Happy Birthday, mourned great TV shows that are no longer with us,  said goodbye to a 25-year-old blogger named Eva Markvoort who passed away, and learned about my naughty little puppy Isabella.

The Weekly Read: The Finishing Touch – Details That Make a Room Beautiful

The Weekly Music: Private Eyes by Hall & Oates because my friend Rude Cactus used it for his blog title yesterday.

The Weekly Movie: The Lovely Bones I read the book a while back and thought it was okay.  I didn’t love the movie.  It was kind of creepy like the book.  Though I did like Mark Wahlberg in it….

The Weekly Beverage: I drank a coconut creme Dunkin’ Donuts coffee on the way to The Albany TweetUp and it was yummy.  This is a big deal because I rarely drink coffee.

The Weekly Amazing Fact: According to OMGFacts: Giraffes can’t yawn.
Pretty much all warm-blooded and cold-blooded animals yawn. Birds, fish, mammals, and of course, people. An average human will yawn 250,000 times in one lifetime, and animals have been photographed yawning all the time. However, neither giraffes nor whales have ever been caught yawning.

Bugs Birthday Cake

The Weekly Birthdays: Lee Wooden, Sung Choo, Theresa Setzer, Jerry Bertram, Todd Harrison, Michael Henry, Jeff Beach, Aimee Giese, Brigette Moore, Cameo Crounse, Nancy Lee Grahn, Cami Rutherford Bajek, Lynn Kinnear, Paul Chenkus, Robyn Dousharm, Jim Milliken, Humberto Martinez, and Sheri Monaco.  Happy Birthday to all of you!  I hope you all had awesome birthdays!!   Leave me a comment to let me know what you did to celebrate your big day.  🙂

The Weekly Activity: Michael & I went to the April Albany TweetUp.

The Weekly new people I’ve found on Twitter: Melissa Ward, WordPress.com, Bettie’s Cakes, Kimmy Tavarez, Two of a Kind, Jaci Sabolsky, and Grant Johnston.

The Weekly Charity I’m Pimping: The National MS Walk in Long Island is on May 2nd.  My friend Kim will be walking and she’s pretty close to her goal.  Anyone who can help with a donation would be appreciated.  Click HERE for the link.

Weekly Grand Totals: My blog has had over 6,500 views.  To some of you that might be nothing, but considering I only started it at the beginning of the year I think it’s pretty decent.  Thank you to all my readers.  Keep commenting and encouraging your friends to subscribe.  🙂

The Weekly Hypothetical: If you were going on a trip, what would you most likely forget to pack?

Me with my bike ~ April 24, 2010

Saturday was a beautiful day in Upstate, NY.  Michael and I went out on our motorcycles.  It was kind of a big deal because I haven’t really gotten the chance to ride my bike for any distance since the end of 2008.  Last season when I took it out I pulled a few muscles trying to hold it up when it didn’t want to keep the shiny side up.  So this season I decided that I really want to ride again.  We went out to Richfield Springs – 132 miles round trip.  We couldn’t have asked for nicer weather.  Not too hot, not too cold.

This is Michael on his bike.  He’s demoing a LowePro Flipside 300 camera bag that he’s going to write a review for.  He wanted to test it out on the bike and see how things went.  It looks like it was pretty comfortable.

What did you do or what do you plan to do this weekend?
