Drive-By Hotting Gets Friendly

Friday, October 26th, 2007

Everybody wave “Hi” to Russell!! HI, RUSSELL!!! *waves* (p.s. I submit this photo as another visual aide in my ongoing lecture series, “Hair is GOOD.”)

The are some who call him…

  Happy Birthday to Tim the Enchanter!! That is all.

Scottish Weather

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

Ahhhh….finally.  It’s chilly, damp, dark, and pouring rain.  Feels so homey. Only (but important) difference being that, were I in Scotland, I could stay home in my snug little croft, listen to BBC Radio Scotland, drink an espresso, and enjoy the weather.  I would most decidedly NOT have to go out on a long trek […]

Found at BigChillFridge. If I had this fridge, I would set it up as an idol, and hold services, and sacrifice babies to it. You don’t even want to see the stoves these people make…you’ll cry.

Another Weekend, Another Wedding

Monday, October 22nd, 2007

On Saturday, we had to trek up to Erie, PA for the wedding of our eldest nephew to his girlfriend of many years. In case you’re wondering how BW has a nephew of marriagable age, it’s because BW’s oldest sister Sandra is 12 years older than BW, and it’s her son. Complicated family dynamics. Anyway […]

I Love the 80′s Drive-By Hotting

Friday, October 19th, 2007

You people know that I love, love, LOVE my DALLAS. Well, here’s some hotness from the Southfork Ranch…my favorite (after ol’ JR) character…Ray Krebbs as played by Mr. Steve Kanaly! Y’all remember Ray, don’tcha? He was the ranch foreman at Southfork, and no matter whether he was roundin’ up the steers, pitchin’ forkfuls of hay, […]

Fangirl Failings

Thursday, October 18th, 2007

Ok, I give up. Take my “Breathless Clive Owen Fangirl” membership card and cut it up, I don’t deserve it. For the second time in a month, I have failed in my duty to support Dear Clive at the box-office. First, I didn’t go to see Shoot Em Up because it just..didn’t really look like […]

Weekend Finds

Monday, October 15th, 2007

A pretty uneventful weekend. We were supposed to go to the movies, but went to a book sale instead. A really BIG booksale at the Mt. Lebanon Public Library…it was huge! I found out about it thanks to Kirk telling me about booksalefinder. com. Anyway, made some good finds there. We bought– Wine For Dummies […]

I Love the 80′s Drive-By Hotting

Friday, October 12th, 2007

The comfort and the joy of feeling lost With the only living boy in New Cross – CarterUSM Don’t really know if this picture is from the 80′s but I think it is…the very late 80′s or maybe up to 1992. Either way, it’s Back In Tha Day(tm). Gary. Perfect British guttersnipe hard-living artist genius […]

Happy Ed Day

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

Another year, another opportunity to celebrate the life and works of Edward D. Wood, Jr. What will it be this year? The Bride of the Monster? The Violent Years? A multi-film retrospective? No matter what you choose to do, the important thing is that you believe that it’s good. Therein lies the magic of Eddie.

This is Why

Tuesday, October 9th, 2007

This is why, no matter how ugly things get, no matter what she does, or with whom…I just can’t find it in me to ever truly dislike Britney Spears.

Do Not Adjust Your Set

Monday, October 8th, 2007

A few changes going on around here as LK and BW help upgrade this blog to the latest version of WordPress.  Still working out the kinks…you’ll notice my fangirl buttons on the right are all askew, minor stuff like that.  Patience please.

The Grinch Who Stole Autumn

Friday, October 5th, 2007

Ok, I said I’d give it a week, now it’s time to get pissy. Autumn is my favorite season, and it’s a fleeting one.  Here in Shittsburgh, it lasts maybe three weeks even in the best of years.  THIS year, half the month of October is going to be gone and it is STILL 85, […]

Fall’s Must-Have Accessory

Thursday, October 4th, 2007

I wish I could find a picture of this for your reference, but you must go out and buy Brach’s new CARAMEL-flavored candy corn! Sweet Elvis, but it is fabulous! I always buy candy corn at Halloween just because you’re “supposed” to, but I never really eat it. Normal candy corn doesn’t really taste like […]

Home, Dream Home 7

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2007

Since I’ve been pondering Scotland, I give you… This house is in the coastal town of Banff, 50 miles north of Aberdeen on the A97 highway. Here’s a picture of Banff… OMG, perfection! The town claims to have one coffee shop and one Indian restaurant, so my needs in life are set. So back […]

Happy Days are here Again

Monday, October 1st, 2007

Look at this picture, from one of my 50′s cookbooks: Isn’t that beautiful?  Doesn’t it make you feel all warm and happy?  Doesn’t it speak of all things that are Good and Righteous and Pure?  Ahhhh…..October is here.  Down with the tyranny and rottenness of summer! Though right now the weather isn’t agreeing with the […]
