Friday Fragments, Focus, Fill-Ins, and Favorites!

I've decided to combine all of the Friday posts into one! Saves me--and you--time reading and writing.

First up: Friday Fragments, brought to you by the good people at Half Past Kissin' Time.

The moon was huge today as I drove into work. I mean, huge! I never saw it look so big. Maybe it was abnormally close to the Earth; I don't know!

Why is it that the plastic wrap, aluminum foil, and baggies can't be located in the grocery store with all the rest of the paper goods?

Brian Williams has a crooked nose. Anyone else notice this?

Speaking of my TV boyfriend the NBC Nightly News anchor, from him I learned how the expression "Ponzi scheme" got its name, and that the first Fireside Chat took place 76 years ago yesterday.

I love red wine. I mean, I reaaaaaalllllllllly love it.

My car repairs finally got done. I had to drive a 2008 Chevy Aveo for a day. Roll down windows, manual locks, crappy gas mileage. On a 2008 car?!?

President Obama's been in office for more than 50 days now. Where the hell does the time go?

I have jury duty next Wednesday. I hope I don't get picked for a jury.

I really want to go to Long Beach Island for a couple of days in April, before the tourist season starts. I haven't been there since I was 16 and feel like taking a trip down Memory Lane.

Lately my town's sounded more like New York City. There have been a lot of cop sirens and fire trucks going by my place!

Focus Friday

Focus Friday is brought to you by the good people at Thrifty and Chic Mom.

This coming week I'm going to focus on finishing The Pillars of the Earth. Only 300 pages to go--and it's really getting good!

Now for some Friday Fill-Ins.


1. When I look to the left, I see my bookcase.

2. My living room is the room that has the best view in my home.

3. Let it work, but also let it play.

4. I like to get stuff done dirt cheap!

5. Owning Citigroup is a responsibility that all qualified citizens must share.

6. If you have any comments feel free to add them to the end of this post.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to participating in Ann's Virtual Girls Night Out, tomorrow my plans include singing in our church's talent show and Sunday, I want to read and veg!

And finally, some Friday Favorites, brought to you by the lovely Miss Janna Bee.

So what got me through this week, Kittens? Well...

  • The good folks at Enterprise Rent a Car helped me when my car was in for repairs. They gave me the above-mentioned Chevy Aveo. Not the best car in the world, but it was reliable, and it got me to where I needed to go. And the people there were very friendly and helpful.
  • My mechanic at the Kia dealership. He's honest and will help out a customer as much as he can.
  • My Monday night book club. I needed a diversion this week. It was a long one.
  • Red wine. Good for both the heart and soul.
  • Sleep. I really needed it this week.
  • Friends, both bloggy and non-bloggy. Their advice and humor kept me sane during a tres long week.
  • My iPod.
  • The good news stories at the end of the NBC Nightly News. It's refreshing to hear about the good things that people are doing for others during hard times.

Well, there you have it--my fist full o' Friday! I'll be back later tonight--that is, if I don't fall asleep in my dinner--for the VGNO. I hope to have another soundtrack ready to go for you girls! Happy Friday!

I was thinking of doing a Friday Fragments, but I don't know what to say")

Our dealership/mechanic is nice, but they are always trying to do extra stuff on my car.

What time do you go to school? Our school opens at 8:50 am and the moon is no longer visible.

Red wine and the iPod.. basic necessities of life!

I don't know what I'd do with my iPod... seriously. I can't remember what it was like before.

Amber said...

Yay, a Virtual Girl's Night Out. That sounds like fun :o)
How many bookcases do you have?
Happy Friday the 13th
