I’ve been watching old episodes of favorite shows lately and thought this would be a fun list.

The Top Ten TV show theme songs (in no particular order)

  1. Angel  – oh! that lone cello intro is so fantastic
  2. Mash – this song really hits at the heart of this show.
  3. SpongeBob Square Pants – hehe
  4. Battlestar Galactica – so beautiful. If you haven’t heard it, listen now
  5. The X Files – they managed to create an air of mystery as great as the show
  6. Twilight Zone – unforgettable
  7. 30 Rock – scatting? Yes please
  8. Dallas – because I had to go old school here. It’s actually got an awesome funk beat to it.
  9. The Simpsons –  two words. Danny. Elfman
  10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer – this theme rocks, as does the show

Pretty partial, and I know there are a lot of cool theme songs out there of shows that I have never seen, like TruBlood and Dexter and The Sopranos (no cable)

Thoughts?

I’ve finally caught up on my gossip girl – phew! I love chuck “bass-tard” as B calls him. (Did you know that “B” was the nickname that Faith used to call Buffy – but she hated it) This show is so great. Do you think there are really people who live like this? That there are a bunch of Upper East Sider, 16 year olds right now who are pissed that there is a show that makes fun of them??

In other mews…look what I made!

A sweater vest that’s too short, accents my scoliosis and makes me look pudgy. Ribbing around the waist – not my friend.  (notice the strategic arm & camera strap placements) I suck at knitting. I think I need to stick to scarves. And socks. My socks are pretty darn good. I just don’t have the heart to frog it and just do it in stockinette, but I think I should. Any advice, knitters?

It’s been a while, huh? Like my new format? I’m not sure if I do.

  • was anyone else disappointed with the ANTM finale? I was so upset when they kicked Jenna off, and there was practically no competition between Chantal and Saleisha.
  • my job is now two pronged: I am a site supervisor, as explained before. And I am the assistant to the executive director/founder. I’ve only worked two days for her, but I can tell that this job is going to be exciting and stressful.
  • I haven’t done too much crafting: I made a couple more cards, but mostly I’ve been knitting. I can’t show you any pics because it’s a gift for a certain someone who might read this.
  • there’s something in my stocking!christmas-stocking.jpg
  • I made three layouts last night. They sort of go as a set. They’re pictures of my sisters and I when we were playing in front of Michelle’s camera at Thanksgiving. Aren’t they fun?

I haven’t been up to much lately. Just working, dance class tonight. Watched “So You Think You Can Dance” (which is a very long title, by the way) I think my faves right now are Neil, Kameron, Sabra and Sara. And Lauren. I guess that would be half, so… never mind.

James and I are having a bizarro Christmas today. I don’t remember how we came to this subject last night, but we discovered that it was exactly the opposite of Christmas today! So, we are having an opposite Christmas. We got each other presents for ourselves. How clever! So I went and bought this really pretty pair of Nine West shoes. I was going to get a second pair, but what luck! They were out of my size. They were so beautiful and I have now found myself a new favorite brand!! Aren’t they cool?

My mind is still reeling from HP. Last night I had the craziest dreams, all Hogwarts/Voldy/Harry Potter related. So, in times when I can’t sleep, I try to lay still and quiet my mind and hope that whatever is keeping me up will go away. But last night, I would wake up from some crazy Voldy-is-chasing-me dream, tell myself to quiet my mind, which in turn would make me think of Occlumency (and how Snape told Harry to clear his mind before he went to sleep) which, of course, would put me right back into another Harry-in-the-great-hall dream. All night long!

I am slightly pissed off because my work is slowly blocking access to all blogs. Yes, I know, work is for work blah blah blah. But there are times when you may have a lull and you would like to surf the net, but no! Most of the links on my sidebar are blocked, so if any of you wonder where I am, now you know. I have to wait to get home to say hello to all my friends.

Well, James is coming home so we can open our presents. I think we should start celebrating our unbirthdays, too!

Phew!! I couldn’t bare it if Hok was kicked of the show. Hok rocks!!

Here are two of the layouts that I finished on Tuesday night. The third one needs some final touches and I just don’t have the energy to do that tonight.

The first one is of my nephew Kyle and James’s little cousin Kenny at the wedding. These are some of the wonderful photos I got developed from my disposables; as you can see, they had a blast at the wedding.

This one is another picture of Lea at her wedding. She just looks so happy, doesn’t she? Like she doesn’t mind at all that there were 1000 other uninvited guests. But then again, she’s not like that. I think she knows how much we love her and wanted to share in her lovely day. (And plus, if you don’t want people to come, don’t have it in a public venue) Dig the title? hahaha

And look at this!!

My sister nominated me! How sweet. Thank you!!! So I will tag Irene, Glenda, Aimee, Morgan and Janet!

Yes, I crashed the computer. I let a huge virus in and James spent over 12 hours fixing and cleaning and doing whatever you do to get rid of viruses. I felt so horrible. But it wasn’t really my fault!! I was just deleting 90+ emails I get to one of my email accounts. (I read them on Thunderbird; it splits the screen so that it opens the email automatically.) Well, I was just going down the line deleting them and what do I get for my hard work? Twelve hours of James cursing at the computer (“mother f*cker!”) sorry, James!!!

I’ve been busy watching all 6 seasons of Sex & the City. I don’t have cable, so I’ve never seen the show, never been into it. But my sister put it on for us when we were scrappin at her house and she leant me all the dvds. I am now on season four where Carrie just said yes to Aidan!!! Can I just say that I love Aidan??!? When she cheated on him last season, I hated Carrie. I keep telling Aidan to get out while he still can… he’s only going to get his heart broken. sigh And I love Steve! He’s such a cutie!

This is my last week. It’s gotten to the point where it feels like summer vacation – I don’t know what day it is, I sleep to late. All I want to know is, what happened to summer vacation? Why do kids get it and we don’t? Is that the big difference between adults and kids?

I got so much done at Michelle’s house last week. I made my ATC’s and two layouts. Here is one of them, the other one is not finished quite yet.

It’s a picture my assistant took of me at work. It’s funny, everyone always talks about how they never do layouts about themselves. I was just going thru my books and I’ve found a TON of layouts about myself. Maybe because James is always taking pictures of me? Or is it because I just am feeling so much about myself, all my fears and worries or whatnot and they all come out on the scrapbook pages. Or maybe I’m just vain?
