Ohhhhh....such a jumble in my head!!

This hotness isn't just a pretty face. He's an AMAZING musician!!-------------------------->

So, I just realized that I didn't wish you a Happy Valentine's Day last week, since I was standing on my soapbox preaching about the woes of capitalism at its best. Sorry about that. I figured out this week why that was happening, let's just say I'm chalking it up to hormones.
ANYHOO!! Had a great day with DD in Seattle. Went to Pioneer Square and International District (aka Chinatown). Had a blast. We like to give socks and candy to the homeless, so we make a trip of it. Then we went to our favorite local bookstores and got a present for her friend. We ended it with the tourist trap that is Uwajimaya. For those of you who wonder what that is, it is an Asian supermarket in Seattle that has just about everything. I call it the tourist trap because tourists are what you see in there. It's fun, though, and we went to a great Cambodian restaurant on one of the main streets of Chinatown. Got to see a dragon dance, too!
I keep forgetting about seeing how THE LIST is going. Mine, not so much, but I'm drinking more water, and I've cut sugar down by quite a bit. I notice that I focus better, which makes me feel so much better, and I don't feel the need for may Adderall as much. :D
Listening to Rob Pattinson right now. GAWWWD I love his voice!! That boy needs to put out an album. WOOT WOOT!!! Hear my playlist of him here:
Love ya!!!
P.S. If you're interested in coming w/ us on our next homeless trip, let me know.

BOOK OF THE BLOG: "The Art of Racing in the Rain" by Garth Stein-Shoutout to Carol, who, if it wasn't for me being a guest in her home, I wouldn't have discovered this sweetness of a book. Garth Stein is a Seattle author. Check it out if you haven't already!


  1. You know, I must have been dyslexic for a second, because I saw "Pat Robertson" and I was about to go all you shouldn't believe a word that guy says because he's such a jerk...then I realized I misread it...then I felt like a jerk...then I had to tell you I'm a jerk AND an idiot who can't read. So far? Batting a thousand. Yea me!

  2. Jim, you're a teacher and you read too much till your eyes cross anyway, so you're forgiven the temporary dyslexia.

  3. I'm going to read "The Art..." again soon. My suggestion for book club tonight is "House of Sand and Fog". Have you read it Gretchen? I saw the movie when it came out, but never read the book. Although it makes more sense to read the book and then see the movie version, sometimes I do it backward. If I love the movie, and it's interesting and complicated, I'll read the book to get the deeper story. And since the book is usually better, it actually makes more sense. Some exceptions to that rule: To Kill a Mockingbird (my all time favorite book and move); The Prince of Tides; Gone With the Wind. Do you have any 'the movie is as good as the book' to add?
