Stuff I'm Thinking
:: Studio 60 is actually getting better. Meanwhile, what have they DONE to Veronica Mars?
:: Why do we have to talk about football in church? I freely admit that I don't groove on football, so there's that. But it seems to me that if we have a very limited time to talk about church things like, you know, THE BIBLE, that maybe we could limit our jocular ribbing about various team sports to pre- and post-church activities. Stopping the actual God-related conversation to point out whose team beat whose seems kinda to be getting on my nerves.
:: I make the best sweet potato soup EVER, and that's what we're having for dinner. As pathetic as it sounds, I'm looking forward to dinner. The only bad part is that you have to puree the cooked soup in a blender to give it a bisque-y texture. I usually screw that part up really bad. Like "help me get the orange goo off the ceiling" bad.
:: I had a dream the other night that I had twin babies (boy and girl) but the hospital staff took my son away and wouldn't give him back. I spent long stretches of the night yelling "Where's my son?" and throwing around pots and pans. (It was a dream, where they have kitchens all over the hospital.) Hmmm. Maybe THAT's why I'm making sweet potato soup. I have an urge to mess up a kitchen.
:: I tried to email my Amazon Wish List to my family members so they know exactly which knitting books to buy me, and I couldn't get it right. So much for simplicity.
:: I'm betting that we get the title to the next Harry Potter book no later than December 21st. Of this year. I have nothing to base that on other than pure instinct. So cross your fingers with me.
:: Is this Zune thing such a good idea? Yes, I'm a Mac Freak so I'm totally biased. But honestly, they're really pushing the 'social interaction' aspect--like that's a good thing. Someone decided to get the entire cast of the Buy The World A Coke campaign from the 70s and stick them in the Zune marketing. It's the music player for hippies!!! Worldly hippies who can afford music players! And want to listen to each other's music! And can't just buy a set of speakers! So they'll squirt each other a song! Never mind that Microsoft has more viruses than a Bangkok whore, and the whole idea of indiscriminate file transmission across the Windows DRM screams INFECT ME!!!! louder than Robin Williams' trying to steal the spotlight back from younger, funnier comedians. I guess I just don't get it. Then again, I'm definitely not in their target market so who knows.
