~It's red scarf and hot chocolate weather
~The Trader Joe's apple bread mix was better than I expected it to be. It does need cool whip or cream cheese. At first, when it was warm I tasted a bit of fake appleness but the next day when I ate the second half of the loaf for breakfast, I decided it was really good and the fakiness was gone.
~A new Brandi Carlile CD! I'm still not sick of her first two so I now need a cd player that can hold more discs. I'm loving her new one and can not wait for her concert this weekend. I'm loving Pride & Joy and Dying Day. Actually, I like the entire cd. You won't be disappointed if you are a Brandi fan.
~Another new cd! Highwire by Dawn Langstroth. WOW! Check out her video for Dark and Twisted. Oh how I love this song. You can read more about her on Pam's blog, The ThoughtVox.
~Glamour magazine is featuring "real women" with rolly poly bits just like the rest of us have! Not on the cover, mind you, but in the magazine at least.
~So glad we had the chance to meet Huston Smith in person in our lifetime. There's a great article about him in the current issue of Shambhala Sun magazine.
~McDonald's chicken snack wraps are really good. They may not actually qualify as a snack calorie-wise, but they are a tasty lunch.
Our Bêtes Noires:
~None of the "real women" in Glamour Magazine have double chins. Or triple chins. They all have thin necks and one chin. Hmmmm.
~Columbus Day. Lame. Let's keep the economy going by not closing things like the post office and bank so we can get stuff done.
~People making things way harder than they have to be and taking a long time to do it.
~In the first rain of this fall, I discovered the one little difference between Costco Uggs and real Uggs: the Costco ones lose their tread within 9 mos, causing extreme slipperyness on wet ground. Sorry, no iPhone pics available. (<---- It's Karen wearing Uggs. I still make fun of people who wear them. She has to wear them because of the never ending toe saga)
~McDonald's grilled chicken anything-but-snack-wrap are horrid.
~Karen's daughter is turning 15 on this weekend which must mean WE HAVE AGED, TOO.
