It completely drives me crazy

When something I came to love and NEED no longer exists because they stopped making it. (And now I can't seem to remember what it was I loved and needed so much I wanted to post that, but seriously. It happens ALL. THE. TIME.)

This week went flying by at the speed of light. I've been shoving Fun Size Snickers down my neck as though they were the food of life but at least I've honestly been working out again.

I'm curious to see if "Life of Pi" makes a better movie than it did a book (I'm completely over mainstream fiction that doesn't end or resolve, just STOPS).

Someone flipped a switch and it's suddenly quite chilly here (read: WOW, it's COLD... for us!). I almost wanted a jacket this morning on the way to the gym.

The best political ads in Phoenix:







Our new hibiscus, all in bloom:



Doggie smile:



The "down" arrow key on my laptop keyboard has snapped off and it won't snap back on. I may have to get a USB keyboard, because I sure can't afford a new computer any time soon.

Check with the computer place on the corner near you to find out if they can fix the key and whether it would be cheaper than a new keyboard. Just to find out.

You need the "Balls" poster. I want to see that one!

Great flower and doggie smile. Bo is such a cheerful puppy.

There are a lot of corners near me. Which corner would this be?

It's spelled "Balsz," and I realized today it must be for the new elementary school built there on 44th Street, "Balsz Elementary." But yeah, I need a picture of that sign.

The corner of 24th St. and Indian School, across from the Circle K. It's a tiny place, but undoubtedly cheaper than Best Buy. It's on the Indian School side near the rental store. I see it every time I drive to your place. :-)

Look at that great doggie smile! And I know exactly what you mean about how "they" stop making things you love. It happens to me all the time with food items. *sigh*

I'm pretty sure it was a foodstuff I was thinking of -- I was driving home the other day and came over with a desire for SOMETHING and remembered, oh woe, they don't make that anymore. Clearly, the fact I've forgotten means it was a passing craving, but I'm sure it'll come back (much as every time I want a Carnation Breakfast Bar).

you're cold and we're sweating. go figure.

that's a beautiful hibiscus

love the sushi ads

Hmmm i was thinking of reading Life of Pi (never did since I'm so not a mainstream reader) but that was no encouraging. The movie looks cool though (or maybe I just think the young star is cute)

Well, the daytime highs are going to be nearly 90 again by the weekend, so that's just the time of year it is, I guess. One day cold, the next not so much.

We forked out for a "patent" flower because the blooms were so unbelievable. Now we have to make sure we keep it alive (hibiscus do all right here, but sometimes if there's a freeze we'll lose 'em, and if it's too hot-and-dry we'll lose 'em, so... danged tropical plants).

It was a GOOD book, but I was VERY dissatisfied with the ending (again!!!). sillymagie said she thought it was too "and it really happened... or did it?!" cliched, and she has a point. The movie looks pretty good, though (tiger!), and yeah, he's very cute. :)

yes definitely that time of year. frankenstorm might hit us with snow showers next week. 85 today, sunday the high is supposed to be 35. Um.....

yes, it's always the expensive ones that require outrageous care

ah okay. I DO know what you mean. You and I have talked about this before. I'm getting tired of the non-ending endings too

Yeah, every election Stingray Sushi chooses something on the ballot (often some proposition or other) and puts up clever ads on street corners disguised as political signs so they get free advertising -- and every major election they're supporting both candidates, as above. I wish I had caught some of the ones when it was Obama v. McCain, those were a riot.

That hibiscus is gorgeous. Ours generally don't last long here, or I'd get one. I guess I'll stick with my daylilies and irises.

I love Bo's smile and the sushi ads. Too funny!
