Photo Friday: Shadow
Teaser Tuesday: What Came from the Stars by Gary D. Schmidt

Friday Five '13E

  1. Last Saturday was spent at the Honda dealership in SLO getting Lexi (my mom's Civic) checked out. Apparently there was a recall notice about the air bag or something. We ignored the first two notices because they both had the wrong model year of our car, so we figured they were sent by mistake. This time they sent the notice with our VIN number, so we thought we'd better have it looked at. In the end, Lexi passed her test, and once again all is well.
  2. Afterwards, we shopped for winter coats and boots for my upcoming trip to The Frozen Tundra, otherwise known as Green Bay, Wisconsin. I couldn't find any boots and all the winter coats that were in my size made me look 10 times bigger, so that was no fun. We'll probably try a couple other places again this Saturday, but I'm afraid it might be too late to find winter coats and I might just take my mom's big purple coat. It's only for the sleigh ride, really, as the rest of the time we'll be inside, or riding in a car or bus, or just taking a quick walk over the bridge.
  3. Hey! Mom and I actually made it through the first hour of American Idol this past Wednesday! The two obnoxious women were behaving themselves and they allowed talented folks through to Hollywood. I didn't bother with the second hour because they were going to have more stupid "heart warming stories" that just make me gag, and I'd already seen enough of those, but maybe there's hope for this show yet.
  4. Everyone keeps asking me if I'm going to watch the Superbowl. I guess becausee my team's not in it, people think I won't bother, but that's not true. I'm totally watching it and hope the Ravens kick the 49ers collective asses. So there.
  5. And, finally, I got my toes done last night. I used O.P.I.'s Japanese Rose Garden which is my favourite go-to pretty pink. (And, for those of you who follow my friend Mary's blog, this photo could also count as an entry for "Tights are not pants!" because this chick just had a short tunic shirt over a pair of tights. The shirt rode up embarrassingly as she was working on my nails! I would've felt bad for her, but I think she thought she looked hot.) Cheers!
