Random Thoughts

I almost left justified this for Shawn. But then I thought about how much fun it is to throw off his equilibrium. So I stuck with right.

Anyone else get their January electric bill and decide to live by candlelight? Holy Moly. We knew it was going up, but yikes!

I have two girlfriends here this weekend. We've known each other since we were 12. There is something SO great about friends like that. We are having so much fun.

I've been around so many people with the stomach flu that I have been perpetually nauseous. I'm totally psychosomatic that way.

Santa got me a great T-shirt. It says "fun size" on it.

I've been wondering about what will be considered "pop culture" for this past decade. I came up with American Idol and Webkinz. I'd love to hear more ideas. What do you think?

I almost passed out when we saw our electric bill. Yowzah!

Fun size? Haha! That's perfect for you! I'm pretty sure that I would be a King size!

Pop Culture...hmmm...wardrobe malfunctions, Livestrong (Lance Armstrong stuff), Harry Potter, Ipods & mp3 players in general got really big...that's all I can come up with for now. Great question!

I've got nothin' on the pop culture, but I ditto what you and Jess both said.

We about flipped out - our house is all electric (no gas :( ) and we've never had a bill that high (electric or gas)!! And we kept it pretty cold.... Ugh. I guess the weeks of below freezing did us in.

I hope you had a great time with your friends, that's so much fun!!

Can Mark treat the bump on my head? I just fell over after reading this post. I blame you!

Regarding the electric, we've convinced the kids that we are impoverished and that failure to turn off the lights when you leave a room could cause the house to be foreclosed on. Matthew took us seriously enough that he now unplugs his electronics when not in use. Should have done this long ago.

So what would my Santa shirt say? No, don't answer that!

Regarding pop culture, the advent of reality TV in general. If not Idol, then Bachelor, Amazing Race, Survivor; everyone has a favorite.
