- Keith Urban is soooo cute. most of the time. CMT had a Top Ten video special of his videos and even though some are good, some ain't. and he looks better in some than others.
- Shark is a great show. James Woods rocks in this show - and as an actor in general.
- people are, for the most part, bright & good. unfortunately it's the stupid and bad ones that get the most press.
- my neighbors vary between totally cool and complete schmucks. the other night, we heard banging and talking - and both were loud and went on for 45 minutes. turns out the next door neighbors were moving a sofa & a love seat out of their apartment. and moved them both down to the TRASH BINS.
aren't people swell? they can't call Goodwill or someone to donate their furniture to, they have to make a bunch of noise & then leave it for trash.
by the way - it's currently 4a.m., i've been up since 3, and yet someone near me has been up as long as i have and is making as much noise as if it were much later in the day.
i feel sorry for whoever lives right next door to them.
so - if you can believe, Thanksgiving is next week. Christmas is right around the corner. i have not started my cards or any shopping. i have, however, purchased my dinner for Thanksgiving.
Knott's Berry Farm offers Turkey in a Box or Ham in a Box - all for about $60. my Husband looooooooves the turkey, so guess what i got. the meal comes with a fully cooked turkey, mashed potatoes, gravy, stuffing, rolls, butter, jam, corn, sweet potatoes, bread & butter pickles AND a pie. the best part? all i have to do is drive up, they bring me a cup of coffee, and someone brings out a huge box & puts it in my car.
this is my idea of cooking.
we've also purchased our airline tickets for Christmas - off to Reno. the day after we bought the tickets, my sister in law & i were talking, when the Niece wanted to talk to me.
"Um, Aunt Balerie? Do you think you could come to my house for Christmas?"
i said yes - i would come out for Christmas. i heard a gasp, then "she said yes!"
then..."um, could you bring Uncle Brendan with you?"
that i can do, my love. that i can do.
