I'm leave in 20 minutes to go to Cooperstown. My sister, the bear, is having surgery on the left foot - lower the arch and moving her big toe closer to the others.

Any one one my f-list who prays, please remember her.

The surgery is scheduled to start at 8:00am EDT and she should be out of recovery by 12:00.

Snagged from [personal profile] madamruppy  these are the top 106 books most often marked as "unread" by LibraryThing’s users. As in, they sit on the shelf to make you look smart or well-rounded.

My mom and I were drive home from childbirth class last night and some how we got talking about mindless TV. Mom said something about "Psych" being as mindless as "The Golden Girls".

I snorted and said, "Okay, but which golden girl would Gus be?"

And my mom, my wonderful mom who just rolls her eyes when my dad and I start doing things like this, said "Oh Gus would be the mom, Sophia."

We setteled that Jules would be Rose, Shawn's dad would be Blanche, and Lassiter would be Dorothy.

Best authors note ever!

Author's Note: Advanced vocabulary was deployed in the making of this story. This is what happens when people whinge that I'm using too many hard words for them.

The advanced vocab?
"and with a fulmination of 'Ho - HO - HOOOOOOOOOO!' his lumbricoid member released a primal alluvion into his myrmidon's lissom omphalos of Love."

I'm still laughing over it.

I took my cat to the vet this afternoon, and while I was driving I had the radio on.

Every station I listened to was reporting about Madonna's induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I know that Justin Timberlake in hosting, that a bunch of people are upset because Madonna's music is more pop then rock and artist like the G. Giles Band and Steve Miller, which are rock acts, have been passed over, that the event is happening in NYC and not Cleavland.

Truthfully, I could not care less.

I get home and my dad asks me if I've heard the news. I know that there is no way my dad is talking about Madonna, so I say no.

Gov. Spitzer's name was found on a client list of a prostitution ring, so he resigned today.

<sarcastic> Yeah, Madonna beats that any day </sarcastic>

More then ever I agree with my icon.

You paid attention during 74% of high school!

68-84% Pretty good, you know that there are libraries and newspapers, and you remember what you've read. You were a child that wasn't left behind!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?

Stupid math.

Your Language Arts Grade: 100%

Way to go! You know not to trust the MS Grammar Check and you know "no" from "know." Now, go forth and spread the good word (or at least, the proper use of apostrophes).

Are You Gooder at Grammar?
Make a Quiz

The reason I did well on these? I was home-schooled. Neither of my parents hold a teaching certificate, but they do hold a vested interest in seeing me become the best I can.

So take that California!

Since Tin Man aired and I reconised Neal McDonough as the bad guy from "Traveler", and then from "Timeline" I've been trying to see his other stuff.

So I just turned on eps 11 of Boomtown, and yes there's Neal looking good even when sleeping off a hang-over on a sofa, but then the credits start to play and guest staring in this eps is Neil Patrick Harris AND Christopher Gorham!!!!

If they all are in a scene together I may pass out from a hotness over load!

The O.D. ran an article yesterday  with the headline, "6 U.S. soldiers killed in Afghanistan; deadliest year since 2001 invasion".
The article talks about the increase in soldiers deaths in both Afghanistan and Iraq, the rise of insurgent attacks, and the increase of troops in eastern Afghanistan.

The factions our troops are fighting would have increased in numbers over the last six years no matter what, so we went to them and there have been 101 U.S. deaths this year, or we could have stayed here, and they would have come to us and the death toll would have been so much more the a hundred.

I also thought about a comment my mother said the other day. She said when the soldiers returned from Vietnam that would be people spitting on them as they got off the buses. Is the support of troops now due to the men who were treated so badly then wishing to never have any one else experience went they went through?

Moving on: I applaud the men and women of Prague who stood in the streets and said "NO!" to those marching to remember Kristallnacht, as a wonderful victory.

The AP said that "right, left-wing groups clash", but I say that it was a group of sound minded people of faith and conviction going up against a bunch of whacked out nut jobs. I say more people should be like this, ready to stand and say, "No, you opinion doesn't count. Go away, we don't want you here." instead of the "oh don't hurt their feelings" mind set that is being pushed down our throats.
