Spring is here...hopefully to stay until summertime!
Do you think you can find the location of the secret room? See if you know where it is!
Do you remember when Green Stamps were around?
Okay...I may not be the first, but they are pretty darn yummy, if I do say so myself!
Where do those missing socks go and how do I find them?
Regarding the earthquake in Japan...
A couple of days is plenty of time to recoup from a mini-meltdown...
I am a woman with a dilemma. As I stood in my barely useable kitchen, having to move a stack of chairs with a giant cardboard xBox character (as a mom, I’m not so hip) brandishing a weapon stacked nearly to the ceiling (the character, not me), to put brownies in the oven (I am running a day late) for my 19-year old’s birthday dessert, wanting to have a day of rest but knowing that I should seriously start cleaning (or is that start serious cleaning…on the Sabbath, no less!), wanting desperately to take a nap but knowing that no one else will hear the timer go off, let alone go pull the browines out of the oven, all the while wondering how I ever got myself into this situation and how I will ever get out. It reminds me of that old black and white silent film series, “The Perils of Pauline” – and no, that isn’t from my era. But I feel much like a damsel in distress, tied to the railroad track with a train speeding towards me or maybe I’ve been tied to big log and I’m headed towards the giant saw (oh…that sounds like it came from a more current movie that I will not watch); or maybe I’ve been blindfolded and tied up and kidnapped by wild Indians (in the form of my family) and tossed

Time is in too high demand to spend it (and the exorbitant price of a ticket) watching a movie that I will very likely be disappointed in. I was anxious for Toy Story 3 and resistant to Inception (I don’t always like DiCaprio) but forced myself to go on a date – I am sure that it was at the bargain matinee ticket price – and I was pleasantly surprised at how it kept me guessing. To me, one criteria for “good movie” status comes if there can be animated conversation about it afterwards. Regardless, the Academy Awards hasn’t held my attention for quite some time. So…speaking
