yep. sick. Nasty nasty head cold, so today was my first ever sick day from work. Woo hoo! I've really been sick since Sunday... but dragged myself to work yesterday where I was told "your glands are the size of golf balls." So no work today. :) Slept, watched "Bend it Like Beckham" (first day released!) and vegged. Feeling better now, but I know I will be slow still. I was so happy to be able to relax and feel completely justified in it.

Can't believe I haven't written in a week. ER was great - I love the new girl from "Beckham," am sad about Luka, and frustrated with Carter... but hurray for Gallant the doctor!!! The weekend was fine. Saw my cute Brittish children and tried to finish the kitchen tiling.... only to find out we are less than 7 tiles short. AHHHHH! No one has these tiles anymore, so we might have to substitute. (I did measure correctly, fyi - we had originally intended to use these tiles in both bathrooms before we found nice tile underneath the crap. We just never bothered to recount the tiles when we started the kitchen.) frustration!

still busy peeling off tiles on the kitchen floor, making the house a disaster...but I think we're actually close to the end!

***SPOILER ALERT*** if you have taped premieres this week and not viewed them yet, don't read the following!!! ***ALERT!!***

So.... Gilmore Girls - I was so worried about the Luke thing, but it is not as bad as I thought. And Ed, who I am still so in love with was good, and there was a girl that Eli called JENNIFAIR!!!! West Wing: so full of tension... we still don't know if Zoey is dead or alive! Oh, the suspense!!! And tomorrow's ER.... someone dead! And it looks like Keri in an upside-down car that is about to be slammed! And more Carter-Abby tension! Oh, the drama! Oh, the angst!

preview week!

there is joy for the television junkie! Preview week! Watched 7th Heaven for mom (good) and then Everwood (which I love more and more!) Even though I have other commitments tomorrow night, I will tape Gilmore Girls. (what's this about Luke married?!?!) Then Wednesday brings the favorite ED (although I thought the teaser commercial tag was cheezy...) and West Wing (and L&O, which I won't stay up for sadly!). Thursday is ER (dance of joy!) and maybe Friends... oh, hurrah! And no, although I have been amused in the past, I will not be tuning in to the Bachelor this time around....

gold star for me!

Oooh! Look at the cool Knitty.com link in the sidebar! I put it in there myself! Aren't you proud of me??? :)


it has already been a productive weekend. We didn't see too much of Isabel (lots of rain and wind, but nothing too crazy). Friday night went out with the girls from work to celebrate a birthday at an Irish pub. Loud, dark and smoky, but whatever. I was social!! Then today, mom and I have been tackling the vinyl-sticker-tiles. Got up over 32 of them (18 tile section times two layers of tile. Probably 1/3 of what needs to be done.) which took most of the day. Now time to kick back, actually work on my Bermuda scrapbook, and watch Miss America... which always makes me feel patriotic, as I look at girls who are a little too beautiful for everyday life. Ah, the American dream!

Isabel.... Isabel, where art thou?

Supposedly, Isabel is coming. Still all we have is wind and cloudy humidity. All of the states south and east of good 'ol NJ are "state of emergency"... but not us. If it were true, it would translate into "NO WORK TOMORROW!" ...alas, I will have to drive in the torrential rain and wind tomorrow and travel between buildings, too. Joy.

television junkie...

...yeah, that describes it. Looking forward to premiere week for everything - including some that are not on my link list - Everwood, West Wing, even Friends. But especially the favorites - ED and ER! Funny that my two faves are each only 2 letters long and start with e.... he he!

Public Television and the Library...

I love free - stupid things that you can get as giveaways make me happy. Late night on public television they show good teaching shows... taped "Jazz Heroes 1-3" this morning at 3:13am (no kidding about the time!). Next Saturday I'll catch the rest. Today, a local library had their once-a-month used book sale. Bought six old knitting magazines for $2 (normally $5.99 each in the store!), a bunch of children's books -10 to be exact - for $4 and another cool book for 75 cents. Rock on!
Another fun freebie experience: Start Sampling

Blah blah blah....

Since no one commented on the links and whether or not they work, I can assume that no one is reading my site... not that millions ever did. So no one will care that I lost a roll of film that had pre-vacation and beginning-of-vacation pictures on it. Grrr! :{

Saw "Seabiscuit" tonight. Loved it - a real soaring-music-great-American-epic type. I love going to the movies. I don't know what it is... the dark, the enormous screen, the surround-sound... but I love it.


Added some new links to the site. Check some of them out to see if I did a good job, will you? :) Thanks!

Poor Bermuda!

How sad that Bermuda has gotten pounded by the dumb hurricane! Good thing that Fabian wasn't there when I was there! In memory of my trip, another w.o.t.d. - Fantasea Bermuda - once you're at the site, click on the "boat cruise and bike tour" picture to read about the trip we took. I loved it!!!

Hello Pot? This is the Kettle. You're black!

Had to go pick up a carton of milk at the supermarket this evening. The guy on line before us proceeded to ramble on and on and on about all of the bad things that were floating around in/a part of the skim milk we intented to buy (pus, estrogen, growth hormones, bacteria, etc, etc... he seriously sounded like he was quoting scientific studies). Makes you feel really good about what you're buying and drinking, right? Well, take it with a grain of salt. This man was buying nasty white bread and the only six-pack I saw was the one he was purchasing - a six pack of caffinated, sugary Coca-cola. So yes, I think the Pot needs to realize that he should not speak to the kettle without looking in the mirror first!

Labor Day 2003

What a rainy, chilly day today! Nothing much got done, mom except removing the rest of the yucky sticker-tiles from the floor in the upstairs bathroom (what a difference!), hanging pictures that have sat in a box for three years and making a quick stop at the mall to exchange pants (dad's) and buy a shirt (me). I love the fact that Labor day (or Labour Day, as it is in Bermuda!) is very non-laborious.

Work tomorrow.... GRRR!
