Gone Fishin’

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Me and this blog are on vacation.  Back the week of May 7. Amuse yourselves.  (Oh, and I’ve tried to block comments so that I don’t come back to 12,000 spam posts.  So if you have something to say, just sit on it awhile.) Ciao!

Today is another High Holy Day for we Elvites…the birthday of Gladys Presley. We spend the day in quiet comtemplation of the life of the Holy Mother, giving thanks, and of course praying our rosaries. (Hey LOUP, you working on those yet?? ) Hail Gladys, full of Grace The Lord is with thee. Blessed art […]

Set a spell

Tuesday, April 24th, 2007

We spent this weekend 1. eating Indian food with buddy Janet and 2. sweeping, mopping, and scooping up umpteen fall-and-winter months’ worth of dirt, dust, rock salt stain, leaves, and general crud off of our porch and front yard. I planted a few flowers, want to order some more online soon, and we also set […]

Well, if we HAVE to have another Tudor movie…

Monday, April 23rd, 2007

THIS is the one. Elizabeth: The Golden Age, the sequel to Elizabeth starring Cate Blanchett as Gloriana. Geoffrey Rush returns as Walsingham. And..and…Clive Owen as Sir Walter Raleigh. Looks grossly historically inaccurate, of course, but you MUST look at Clive in this trailer. Watch trailer here. OMG, Cliiiiiiiiiiiiveeee!!!!!!!!!!!!! Can’t believe we have to wait until […]

Musical Crimes Against Humanity

Whistler’s post from the other day about the sort of music that he’s into brought to mind a rant that has been brewing in my mind for a long time. (Heh, sorry Whistler!) Usually whenever I try to approach this topic I get so incoherent with rage that I can’t type, but I’m gonna try. […]

Using OCD Powers for Good

Thursday, April 12th, 2007

My neighborhood improvement group started an Adopt-a-Block program, and I joined. This means that I picked a street near me and have committed to go out and pick up litter from it twice a month. Even though I walk around in a constant state of being annoyed by litter, and wanting to pick it up, […]

What’s worse? Hurricane, flood, devastation, disease, and homelessness.. OR Just day-to-day life in Pittsburgh? You decide! The Pittsburgh region has lost more residents since 2000 than any U.S. metropolitan area except New Orleans, but there’s no hurricane responsible for it dropping 60,309 people. Instead, the latest population figures from the U.S. Census Bureau show […]

Drive-By Heathing

Wednesday, April 4th, 2007

Today is Heath Ledger’s birthday! And though at the ripe old age of 27, Heath appears to be rapidly losing his looks (and hair), we won’t dwell on that. (Though we will quote Kirk, “Would it KILL you to lift a weight?!”) Instead here’s a few pics of Heath rocking the cuteness a few years […]

Festive Overload

Monday, April 2nd, 2007

That was the weekend.  Saturday was BW’s birthday, but we celebrated it on Friday night because on Saturday night we went to an engagement party for our bud Tim The Enchanter.  (Which was very nice.  Lovely setting, good drinks and absolutely great snack choices.  Sushi and grape leaves?  Food heaven!)  Then yesterday we spent the […]
