again! The week has sped by, and half my time with the Virginia family is gone. I'm appreciating every moment...
Haven't watched any news since being here, but my limited time on the 'net tells me that the dominoes are still rocking back and forth in the Middle East. Well, I guess the price of gas is telling me that as well :-(
So far I've resisted watching American Idol, other than a few clips, this year. I may jump in later in the season, but then I will have to ask the inevitable question, "What is that thing seated by JLo?"
It's a very nice time of year to visit Charlottesville!
I have to come to Virginia to get Chinese takeout delivered. What's wrong with this picture?
Getting ready to picket if The King's Speech doesn't win tonight. As in, win practically everything. That may not be completely fair of me, since it's the only one I've seen of all the nominated pictures...but I don't have any faith that today's Hollywood is capable of making a better picture.
of pictures, have you seen the new deal being offered to Amazon Prime
members? Right now, it doesn't look like much, but it's offered at no additional charge and it's bound to have a wider and wider selection in the coming months. If I were Netflix, I'd be quaking in my boots. As a matter of fact, I'll be dropping Netflix (again) if Amazon can come anywhere near close to what Netflix offers. Because some months I don't have time to watch a single movie or streamed TV show, so I'd be glad to eliminate the $9 a month!
So it's a blast to be here with the three grandkids I see the least. They change so much in between visits that I am mesmerized to watch them play and eat and sing and dance...Erin, Jude, Savannah, GRANNY LOVES YOU!
audio book is Half the Sky
. This one is very hard to listen to. I'm expecting its political stance to be different than mine in places, but the issues it explores need to be a concern for every one of us.
And there, in no particular order, are the snippets from this week. Have a good one!
