Random Tuesday Thoughts
In keeping with NaBloPoMo, this is my 9th posting in 9 days! Go me!!
Someone posted a comment on a previous post and it was an advertisement for a jacket from their own blog! It's all in English (using a translator program, no doubt) because the profile stuff looks to be in Japanese. Ironically, it's on the posting about the spam email I received. Maybe this poster thinks I'm really going to be a millionaire!
I am hooked on Elin Hilderbrand's books! She's written 9 books, with a 10th book coming out this summer. I'm just beginning my 8th book (The Castaways). I can't read them fast enough! They all take place on Nantucket, and I wish I had the money to go there and stay at some of the places she has in her books! AND Elin is Collegeville, PA born and bred!
John and I saw the movie, Red this past weekend. Lots of stars in this one, including Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, Richard Dreyfus, Morgan Freeman, John Malkovich and Mary Louise Parker. Funny, funny, funny!!!! Go see it!
My daughter fell in love with a kitty at the Humane Society near where she goes to school. I hope she doesn't bring him home. I have 2 cats and my son moved home with a cat (my cats don't like his cat... sigh). I think if she brings this one home, I will officially be considered a cat lady.
My older daughter's wedding plans are coming along nicely. The Church is reserved, the organist is selected, the Cantor has been chosen, the hotel booked, the menu selected, Daddy Dearest is paying for it, the wedding gown is ordered, the shoes are purchased, the DJ is booked. I have yet to even think about a dress for myself. I keep hoping, by some miracle, 50 or 60 pounds will disappear from my body before I have to shop for my dress. Not gonna happen, I'm guessing.
This Thursday is Veteran's Day. Thank you, thank you, thank you to our military, active and retired for your service to our great country! This includes my brothers Michael Mack, Marty Mack and Jimmy Mack (retired US Marines, every one of them!), my brother-in-law, Jim Roach (retired Army), his son Steve Roach (active Army and former Marine), Jim's daughter, Marianne Roach Casserly (retired Army), my love, John Russo (retired Army), his son, Mark Russo (active Army).
OK, so Keely is really focused on Zombies today. Hop on over to The Un Mom and check out her Zombie haikus she's writing on her fridge.
