Superbowl is Blimp Season

Hosting the Superbowl means the valley skies are full of blimps. I saw the real Good Year blimp floating over our neighborhood this afternoon. It's almost like being in the Dr. Who alternate reality where Rose got left. Honestly. (No, I'm kidding.) No, honestly! (It was really freakin' easy to get hooked on Craig Ferguson. The only reason I hadn't before was lack of Tivo and a need to be asleep at that time of the night.)

Oh, I love my Tivo.

While I'm here...

THANK YOU, miertam!!!

He knows what for. I'm using it right now.

This has been a really good day, and most of it has been totally home-bound domestic. Got most of the laundry done, finished a review for Teddy Thompson's Upfront & Down Low, which, if you like good country music, is a disc you should buy. Then we played for a while with the new toys, and I made crispy coconut for tonight's rice pudding (a recipe sillymagpie found somewhere), and then we got the urge to see if there was a good little curio at the used furniture store we love up in north Phoenix - there was, we bought it, and now it's in the front foyer waiting to be filled with my bottle collection, which will get it out of the bedroom and free up a lot of room for Barb's desk.

Now I'm relaxing and a chicken is roasting. I need to start the rice pudding. Yum.

Hee! I love your Craig Ferguson imitation. *g* And except for the coconut, dinner sounds yummy. Hurray for good days!

I'm watching him now, matter of fact! (Thursday's episode.) Now I need some Craig icons.

Ah, this is not the rice pudding for you! I almost forgot about your dislike of coconut! But at least you'd like the roast chicken & potatoes, right? *g*

Someday we'll do that get-together - I'll do the cooking, you can do the baking!

You both are welcome. It is always nice to have good tools. I am glad to hear everything arrived safely

Hurrah for curio cabinets and roast chicken! (And watch out for the blimps...)

It was a mighty good roast chicken, too! And today it's cold and dreary (which I actually like, having weather like this in February! *g* ).

Craig Ferguson is strangely addictive. And dangerous to watch while drinking soda.

miertam and typographer are indeed wonderful, and I thank them as well, because now you have wireless! I can bring my own laptop over and we can, like, totally have a LAN party. (Okay, a wireless party.) Also, I commend them on sending you Compaq. I lurve Compaq.
