Random Nibbly Things

I told myself that I couldn't/shouldn't/wouldn't blog until I answered all my email - and I'm still working on that, I swear! - but there were a few nibbly bits that I wanted to follow-up on.

  1. It's a girl! (our adorable new panda, that is!)

  2. Gilmore Girls season premiere tonight...
    I'm trying not to get my hopes up too high - mainly because last season ended on such a down note (who am I kidding - that was no "down note", that was Amy Sherman Palladino and Dan Palladino scorching the earth on their way out the door....) However, I can't help myself, I'm so excited, I'm vibrating....

  3. I'm also excited that several of you have expressed an interest in trying the cookie recipe for yourselves! Please, please, please do - and let me know how they work for you!
    I've got to take a dessert to a school function on Friday, and am thinking about making another batch of these for that. Also, my latest issue of Southern Living came over the weekend, and they had an article which said that you can freeze pretty much any kind of cookie dough. I may make an extra big batch of the batter, and then freeze small scoops of it. (Have I mentioned how much I love my cookie scoop?) Maybe if I only bake a few at a time, we won't eat all three dozen in a matter of hours...

  4. I was working on the final little piece that needs to be done before I can say "I'm through!" with the bathroom (ooooh, mysterious!) and I had the tv on, listening to some sort of daytimetalkshowtripe. A commercial came on - and totally cracked me up. It was for some sort of bread, Sara Lee maybe?
    The thing that just slayed me was the music: Happy Happy Joy Joy*. From the old Ren & Stimpy show. I used to love that show in the early 90's. At any rate, never did I dream that I would hear "my old pal, Stinky Wizzleteats" shilling for bread. Or really any product, actually. Seriously, I can only assume that the decision makers at Sara Lee (or wherever) never actually bothered to listen to the lyrics for the whole song....
    (and now, I will be thinking "I'll teach your grandmother to suck eggs!" for the next few days....)

  5. Uh-oh. Are things looking bad for Grandpa Jim????

And, seriously?, I am trying to respond to all the emails and comments I've gotten in the last little bit. I'd love to get back to each of you on all of them... Please know that even though I may not respond to all your comments. etc. in a timely fashion - I do read them; and I do appreciate them greatly! You all are the best...

xxxooo



*It's official now - YouTube has now joined the list of thing that "I remember what my life was without this, and I don't ever want to go back". It joins iPod, Google, and TiVo...

Darn I missed Gilmore Girls. I feel asleep. Was it good?

I'm such a bad blogger. I don't respond to comments. (Bad me! Bad me!)
