Gotta Get It

Has anyone been watching I Love the Eighties 3D? There's been adds for a Name That Tune 80s Edition DVD game. I have to get it!


I took a nice swan dive in Barnes & Noble yesterday, going to meet Amanda after work on a rainy day, with new shoes on. Didn't bother me so much then other than embarrassment, but I think I've sprained my ankle, bruised and swollen today. Goin' to doc to check it out. Forced me to slow down a bit, so not such a terrible thing. Guess no breakdancin for me on Sat night! Oh well, pass the vino.

So, GG chat, anyone?

I will post some stuff on our Domestic Goddesses site, but NOTHING is health-oriented, or really original per se, but some of it is tasty! I constantly seek out recipes in mags and online, and I worship butter, sugar, veggie oil, and wine in my cooking (granted, not all in the same recipe!). I figure, no one is getting off the planet alive, so, f--- it!

Waitin' to hear 'Hung Up'

I have to admit, that Motorola ad has seduced me with that snippet of Madonna's new song, "Hung Up," a disco-ish tune with a generous sampling of Abba's "Gimme, Gimme, Gimme," that sounds hot! I've had a love it-or-hate it relationship with Madonna's music, but this (from what little I've heard) sounds infectious! I think it's out tomorrow (Oct. 17.) Can't wait!
Update: You can hear the song in its entirety on her web site, There's a button right on the home page, just hit 'play' icon.

Where Fashion Meets Functional Idiot

I was watching NY1 the other day and they were at some tech convention going on at Javits. After showing this 'n that, the reporter then displays some new purses. Now granted, I LOVE bags, but these had a clear window panel in the bag where owners can display their $300 iPods for all to see! "This is where fashion meets function," said some lame brained idiot. At least the L.A.M.B. collection from Gwen Stefani has a discreet little pocket inside her bag for the iPod. C'mon people, get a clue!

Buried Treasure

Today, while walking my dog, I saw something shiny in the dirt. Bent down to pick it up, and it was a dragonfly broach! Kinda pretty, brought it home and cleaned it up. A nice touch to a rainy day.

2005 Fall Fashions

I have to say, this year's fall fashions are the prettiest I've seen in at least a decade. I love the rich, jewel hues, the patterns, the velvety jackets and wool skirts, the bags. Fashion is fun again!

Cooking Classes

I really enjoy cooking/baking when I'm not in a rush. When I nail it, I (and Ian and Amanda)are happy campers. At some point, maybe we (you know who you all are) could take a cooking class at the Culinary Institute. Any interest?

This is TV Foreplay at its cruelest!

They are really working me overtime with GG! I came ever close with satisfaction this week, when I saw the look on Richard's face realizing his granddaughter had been 'crushed' by Huntzberger's treatment of her, and realized he's been going about this situation the wrong way. Rory belongs at Yale!!! At least Emily scathingly ratted out Mrs. Huntzberger and called her a two-bit goldigger (I can't believe she used the word 'banged' in such context!)

And how about Luke sitting all alone in the woods 'camping', when he wanted to be with Lorelai at the recital all along?? I could've died.

Can we all please get along? Let there be forgiveness, Friday night dinners with the Gilmore seniors, and coffee and cracks with the GG girls at Luke's Diner once more!

One question-what is the 'secret' they're talking about in the trailer? There's definitely some dark secret on Logan (as he's always been on the outs with his dad.) Maybe he's illegitimate? Or maybe his dad's paying of Yale to let his son go there?

One more question-should we take bets on if and when Lane is ever going to get horizontal?

That Burger King Campaign is Friggin' Weird!

The agency that's handling the Burger King ad campaign must be smoking crack, because a giant, plastic Burger King staring me in the face atop a high beam, while shaking me (ok the innocent guy) no less, is NOT amusing! It's downright scary! A giant, plastic Burger King popping up ANYWHERE is scary! Not cool! Not making me want to buy a burger. What happened to the friendly cartoon king of the old days?

The Power of Baking

Ah, nothing like a leisurely Sunday and the smell of a freshly-baked apple pie in your kitchen. Even better, eating a warm slice of apple pie with a dollup of vanilla ice cream on top!

Lorelai on GG is an Idiot!

I mean it when I say that I want more than anything for Rory and Lorelai to make up on Gilmore Girls. Having to endure the past few weeks watching the show without them being in contact with each other at all has been hard and unpleasant. I was hopeful watching the show tonight, seeing Lorelai longing to watch a favorite show with just her daughter, and the look that she gave as Rory approached the church for Sookie's kiddies' baptism was priceless.
Then the show went downhill!
Lorelai, in an unbelievably low selfish act, decided that while she and Rory are cradling the babies at the altar (as part of their godparenting duties), as the minister prepares to baptize the children, that now's as good as time as any to escort Rory outside and scold her for giving Sookie her new cell phone number and not her mother. What the hell is this? Are you five? In the middle of your best friends' children's day, your making a personal matter a priority? You couldn't wait until after the service at least!
Aaargh! Everytime I think Lorelai is taking a step forward she takes two steps back with this infantile behavior. I know she's a young mom and all, but by now, she's like 37, so wise up, woman! Those damn tv writers piss me off!

The First Time We Met

This is a poem written by my daughter for a school contest. I thought it was pretty amazing. She is eleven years old.

The First Time We Met
By Amanda Sheridan

The first time we met,
the time I will never forget,
because being with you is all I need,
in my thoughts and in my dreams.
The first time we met,
I knew I was in love,
that very second I just knew,
that if you were to know me,
we would be in true love,
not the kind you see on tv,
or what you hear on the radio,
but true love is what I mean.
The first time we met,
the time I will never forget,
because if I die before you,
you will always know,
that I will be waiting for you.
So never forget,
that I LOVE you!
That will always be true!
From the first time we met.
