The Weekly Sadness: My friend Shane Anthony Leone died on Tuesday February 2nd.  He was a wonderfully kind, caring and compassionate friend.  I will miss him.  😦

The Weekly Read: The Road by Cormac McCarthy you can read my review of it on the Goodreads page.
My favorite quote was from page 12: “You forget what you want to remember and you remember what you want to forget”

The Weekly Music: Behind Blue Eyes – The Who and Calling All Friends – Low Stars

The Weekly Movie: The Wizard, Independence Day, Employee of the Month, Roadtrip, and Jerry McGuire “You had me at hello.”

The Weekly TV Show: The wait is FINALLY over.  LOST is back on for it’s final season.  I’m STILL confused though!!

The Weekly Big Blog Moments: My Please Help!  My friend needs relationship advice blog got almost triple the views of my biggest blog hit day ever!  That’s pretty incredible.  I wish it were for a happier reason though.  What I can’t believe is that over 200 people came to my blog that day and NOT EVEN ONE new person subscribed to my blog.  I’m shocked!

The Weekly Schadenfreude: Sarah Palin’s response to Rahm Emanuel & Rush Limbaugh using the word retard or retarded. The word was used properly.  Retard is defined as: “Sometimes offensive: slow or limited in intellectual or emotional development or academic progress.  The way our government has been lately, I don’t blame him for using the word, because it does seem that many are limited in the intellectual department….  It wasn’t used against her child.  Sarah needs to get over herself, it’s NOT all about Sarah!!  Also, I just now realized that Sarah Palin doesn’t seem to have her own website.  Interesting….

The Weekly Time Waster: The NYS Senate Committee has passed a gallons per mile bill.  Seriously?  NY needs to learn to do math on their own.  Why are you wasting valuable time creating shit like this.  I want to drive 1000 miles my car gets 25 mpg therefore it will take me 40 gallons of gas to get there.  It’s MATH not rocket science.

The Weekly Tea: Garden Aria White Tea

The Weekly Food: Grandpa Pete’s Vodka Sauce Grandpa Pete’s had a booth at the Home Show this past weekend.  They had samples.  OMG their sauces are good!  They’re worth every penny!  (Or should I say Penne?)  LOL!

The Weekly Amazing Fact: Nerve impulses to and from the brain travel as fast as 170 miles per hour. Ever wonder how you can react so fast to things around you or why that stubbed toe hurts right away? It’s due to the super-speedy movement of nerve impulses from your brain to the rest of your body and vice versa, bringing reactions at the speed of a high powered luxury sports car.

The Weekly Birthdays: Darrell Kuhn, Jen Adams, Jay Gruen, Katie “Pampered Chef” McKay, and Joey “The Word” Parola

The Weekly Annoyance: If you list things on eBay, and I buy them, make sure they get to me.  Excuses are annoying.  “I lost your gift certificate.”  “Your game must have been lost in the mail.”  ANNOYED!!
