A different kind of marathon

I am a huge fan of the movies, and thankfully I married a movie goer. I don’t know how his childhood was, but mine was spent at the movies, often. When we first were married, we went to the movies a few times a week. It was usually the 9pm movie, which now we don’t […]

Tomhanksandritawilsonareinthestore

There is no other way to say this. I’ve thought about it and I can’t come up with anything better. So I’m just going to have to blurt it out. ON SATURDAY I WAS IN CHICAGO WITH MY VERY BEST FRIEND AND WE WERE IN BANANA REPUBLIC AND I MET TOM HANKS!! See? I couldn’t […]

Dexter’s No. 1 State of Fear

I love it when iTunes has a sale on audiobooks. On Sunday I noticed a sale on 100 mystery and thriller books ($6.95 each), so of course I couldn’t help myself and plunged right in to pick out a few to listen to. Dexter By Design, Jeff Lindsay: I’ve not read the Dexter books, but […]

Books I’ve never read

My husband would like to go to Barnes & Noble today to get a book: The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Sleepy Hollow is a place that I’ve been, but I’ve never read the book. I saw the play though, does that count? Anyhow, as I pointed out to my husband that I’ve never read The […]

So I was getting a pedicure …

So I was getting a pedicure yesterday around 4:45 p.m. CST when I kinda heard a voice say to someone else down the hallway and through two doorways “first Farrah Fawcett dies and now Michael Jackson…” And I was all like, whoa whoa whoa, what? But one of the doors swung shut and I couldn’t […]

7 courses of food that I don’t eat

On Friday night I took my husband to a beer tasting event that was paired with a seven course meal. It was an event that was put on at Bacchus, a Bartolotta Restaurant along with  New Glarus Brewing Co. It was advertised as a five course meal, prepared by Executive Chef Adam Siegel, who is […]
