I watched a lot of TV: A marathon of "Merv Griffin's Crosswords" and Ty Treadway on "The View" where they gave Joy Behar a special puzzle, which she almost finished in 1:30. It had things like Barbara Walters' Sarah Lawrence dorm (TITSWORTH) and NO BIG WHOOP in honor of Goldberg. The snark of "Best Week Ever." A college dance team competition, dispatched in fast forward. A pageant of past "Queer Eye" winners, which didn't include former co-worker Josh. Seven episodes of "The Comeback" (LOVED it!) through HBO On Demand. Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders go to boot camp. TiVo stopped scheduling as of 10/11, and I had to restart it in order to load a service update.
Books were completed:
"Someone Like You" by Cathy Kelly - Another one where characters meet in the beginning and then seem to have no other friends. This follows 3 women in Dublin, but it's mostly their separate stories so it could have been 3 separate books. It was long enough to be 3 books, and I was glad to finish.
"Hunger Point" by Jillian Medoff - Frannie muddles through life with her dysfunctional family. At the end, she finds her new boyfriend's family is just as bad. There's a lot of introspection and some very sad moments.
"It's a Chick Thing" edited by Ame Mahler Beanland and Emily Miles Terry - True anecdotes of girls who just wanna have fun, in cutely packaged vignettes.
"Confessions of a Late Night Talk Show Host: The Autobiography Of Larry Sanders" by Garry Shandling. I love the TV show, but the book was nothing special.
I've read 10 of the books on that book meme.
US magazine, 4/16/07 - in the fashion pictures, I always try to identify the people before looking at the names. My idea of fun. There was a puff piece about Tori Spelling and her new baby. Like she's the only person who ever had a baby.
I got a $48 MetroCard in the mail from the MTA as a replacement for the expired one. They advised me to do this at a station in the future, even though I already explained I TRIED to do this and the machines claimed there was a one-year limit instead of two.
It's still warm enough for terrace lounging, where I shine a light on the books and can see just fine. Sometimes I bring the laptop out, and can glom onto random wifi if I'm too lazy to turn on the router.
Judy gave me a Lakers Tweety Bird T-shirt in XXL which I loved as a nightshirt. It was getting tattered in the neck area, and then I pulled it and made it really torn, and sadly Tweety had to go to that big T-shirt in the sky (i.e., the garbage). Then I stepped on the hem of my long blue print skirt (from the Lina collection, i.e. my sister's closet), causing a big tear so its days are also numbered. The waist elastic was already gone. It's a Liz Claiborne petite but I can't find another one online. I'll still use it to walk around the neighborhood.
