Randomness

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!

Valentines girls

Tiny loves Pooh bear. I believe she currently has 6 stuffed Poohs.

She also loves dancing.

and is apparently considering following in her namesake’s shoes, playing the role of an updated Eliza Doolittle in an as yet unscheduled performance of My Fair Baby.

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?

  1. We’re gonna get a new couch one of these days. I really want a sectional, with a part that reclines, but our front room is so darn long… I just haven’t a clue what I’ll do. I’m so darn jealous though.

  2. I’m so bad bz I don’t watch the Olympics and could not really care any less about them. I’m just not a sports-type person. I love to watch baseball in person though. The whole watching them on TV just doesn’t do anything for me. I’m still working on my sewing room. It’s all painted, baseboards are on. Some of the furniture is in but I need to clean the carpets before the rest goes in but Nicholas has my cleaner! I’m so anxious to get sewing. I deep cleaned the family room yesterday too and rearranged it. I’ve been very busy but just really don’t have anything to show for it…yet! Congrats on the new couch! New furniture is always such a pick me up. I want a new front room couch but I don’t need one. I bought a really good quality one so even after 14 years it still looks really good and the cushions are still thick and full. Maybe in another 14 years I’ll get a new one! The girls are gorgeous as always and I love Audrey’s shirt about doing her own stunts!
