Some bits and pieces from life recently:
My new favorite band is Rock Sugar. A rock band stuck on a desert island in 1989 with only the 80’s pop cd collection of a 13 year old girl… Absolutely hilarious and awesome.
Men’s moguls was KILLING me last night. Seriously, the Olympics has some kind of spores or something ( as my brother used to say about Harry Potter) – I don’t care in the least about men’s moguls, but I was on the edge of my seat screaming as those last 3 skiers went down. And did you see the US guy totally biff it toward the end there? B totally caused that. He gave it to the universe, and the universe gave it right back. 🙂
We’re getting a new couch! B used his day off today and went and picked it out while we were busy with preschool- total surprise. We get it in a couple weeks. Woo hoo!
I have Lady Gaga’s Bad Romance stuck in my head. It will. not. leave. I won’t link to it so as to save you from the same fate.
I’ve been thinking about this post about girls and sports (and the drive to win vs. being “nice”) a lot over the last couple of days, especially in light of the Olympics and an interview I watched with the women’s mogul gold medalist, who talked about how it made her sad to have taken the gold from the Canadian who almost won. I don’t know that I’m coming to any conclusions, especially since I never participated in competitive sports of any kind. If anyone has any insights and wants to talk about it, I’d love to.
And now, some pictures!
Tiny loves Pooh bear. I believe she currently has 6 stuffed Poohs.
Z loves posing.
I believe that’s all that’s going on at the moment. I have a baby blanket to finish, and a large number of projects to start and finish. I need to write them all down so I can get them going and done.
What are you up to?
