The Weeklies ~ Week 21

The Weekly Re-cap: This week we talked about a working dog and a tree-climbing rooster.  I told you about a website called Opposites Connect that is launching soon and a bad date I went on.  You got to meet and learn more about my friend Jessica, we talked about loaded questions, bloggers & baseball….  Lastly I told you all about a fundraiser that takes place TONIGHT called Chase For A Cure.  Be there – all the cool kids are going!!

The Weekly Read: Bobby Flay’s – Grill It!

The Weekly Movie: The Rock & Jury Duty

The Weekly Downer: Being out of work 😦

Cast of Romantically Challenged

The Weekly Sad TV Situation: Romantically Challenged was canceled 😦

The Weekly Schadenfreude: New York State Governor Patterson wanted to put New York State workers on a temporary 1 day per week un-paid furlough.  A judge put a temporary restraining order on the furloughs.  So instead Patterson may lay off 10,000+ state workers.  I bet 1 day off isn’t looking so bad now huh?  If you have a job be thankful you’re employed.

The Weekly Tea: We broke out my Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker this week.  We made some Lipton White Tea with Island Mango and Peach Iced Sweet Tea and it was yummy!!

The Weekly Food: We had some leftover pork loin and smashed potatoes from last nights No Destination dinner at The Mill Tavern after the ride for dinner tonight.

The Weekly Amazing Fact: According to OMGFacts on Twitter:  The Statue of Liberty’s feet are 25 ft long, making her a US women’s shoe size 879.

Happy Birthday!

The Weekly Birthdays: David Onufer, Jim Mergenthaler, James Demontozon, Gaston Vega Vallejo, Rita Davenport, Alison Payette-Lovely, and Paul Fred.  I hope you all had a wonderful birthday!!   Leave me a comment here on the blog and tell me what you did for your birthday.

The Weekly Holy Shit Headline: A 13-year-old middle schooler named Raymond Hosier was suspended for wearing rosary beads to school.  The school says their dress code states that beads may not be worn because they’ve been known to be gang symbols.  The young man wears them as a remembrance of his older brother Joey who was killed by car back in 2005 and for his uncle who died of cancer two weeks ago.  The news story is here.  The comments on the story were VERY interesting too!

The Weekly Activity: Job hunting, blogging and networking.

The Weekly Damn It: Key Bank is now giving out an 8GB iPod Touch if you open a new account and do a few things to establish the account.  I’m bummed because I already have an account and I’m not eligible!!  Anyone want to open an account and give it to me??

The Weekly new people I’ve found on Twitter: Sonny’s BBQ (FL), Blue Martini (Tampa), Wet Seal, Funny Spoon, Nerd Approved, Saratoga Winery, Tweetup Saratoga, Hard Rock Cafe, and Mike Keane.

The Weekly Countdowns: Sex In The City 2 (May 27, 2010) 6 more days & The Twilight Saga: Eclipse (June 30, 2010) 40 more days.

The Weekly Hypothetical: If we were all told we needed to evacuate the United States next week and go anywhere else in the world – where would you go?  (And being stubborn and staying here to die is NOT an option)

The Weekly Not-So-Hypothetical: If you’re a wine drinker what are you favorite kinds of wine?

Ever feel like the rugs been pulled out from under you?

The Weekly BIG Thing on Facebook: Save John Boyd Thacher ParkMany state parks are being closed in New York state.  Governor Patterson has published a statement listing which parks and historic sites will be closed, etc.  Some will close, some will discontinue fireworks displays, some are closing pools and lakes, some will have reduced hours, there will be some shortened golf seasons and programs will be shut down.  It’s so sad to see them cut budgets like this while other useless programs continue.  I’m still mad about the gallons per mile bill that the senate wasted their time on a few weeks back….

The Weekly Downer: All the blue stars

The Weekly Schadenfreude: Tiger Woods’ Public Apology – He owes his wife Elin Nordengren an apology.  He does NOT owe the world an apology.

The Weekly Food: Mild Wally’s Chicken Parmigiana Pizza, Bruschetta Bread, Buffalo Chicken Salad, and an Italian Mix Sub.  Yummy yummy!  Big Thank You’s go out to Cute Ella Is Bold for dinner 🙂

The Weekly Amazing Fact: Human Beings are differentiated in finger prints and tongue prints, dogs are differentiated using nose print!
