This-n-That Thursday

Because I know you've been wondering....
  • I am not admitting how many times this month I have aimed the phone at the television and cussed when the channel didn't change.
  • I stopped watching the stock market three weeks ago.
  • I happily wrote a check for  $50  To The Connecticut Foodbank.  Thanks to everyone who commented (all 42 of you...I rounded up).
  • My inability to suffer fools increases daily.
  • Have you noticed how many fools there are these days?
  • Should I do the Mental P Mama Book Club, and how would it work?
  • I don't think I can wait until this election is over.  Campaign Fatigue.
  • I am craving a new puppy.  Wonder if it's hormonal?
  • Did anyone ever see the movie, The Abominable Dr. Phibes?  Best Horror movie ever.  I actually saw it in a theater.  Pronounced "thee-ater" at the time.
  • Everyone should make Dlyn's Apple Cheese Crisp tonight.  It's that good.
  • Tonight is Mischief Night.  Hmmm.
  • I have had the song "Everybody Wang Chung Tonight" stuck in my head for what seems like weeks.

Suz @ Alive in Wonderland said...

I like the idea of a book club. No idea how it would work, though.

Suz @ Alive in Wonderland said...

Oh, and I had "Wake me up before you go-go" stuck in my head for an entire summer once. It was brutal.

Forgot about October 30th.
Around here they call it devils night.
Hopefully there won't be too much damage here.

You had to mention Wang Chung.

Molly said...

I'm visiting because one of my favorite bloggers (country girl on the chesapeake bay) calls YOU one of HER favorite bloggers...and she's right!

flinging wang chung at us, well, that was a stroke of marketing genius. Now no one will forget you all day :)

Reliving my semi-youth.Now that Led Zep wants to reunite and Robert Plant is holding out, just peeves me. What a stick in the mud he is! I would go in a nanosec!

Book club yes!

Wait to fill the empty nest with the puppy!

"Dr. Phibes"? - no but I am waiting to see "Horrors of the Black Museum" my favorite from the 60's.

Election....no one knows what lever gets pulled til the end...

Living on the Spit said...

Yep, it's stuck in my head now too...

That's awesome about the donation!

Yes, to the book club...please? Start another blog separate from this one, decide on the book and give everyone a two week advance notice of begin date. Post the weeks discussion questions on the blog and we can all answer with our thoughts. Google book club, blogspot and see examples of others.

Will go check out the apple cheese crisp..


Love you...there is political funniness on my post today...sorry.

You may be living my life, or I may be living yours. well, paritally... and with your readers, now I'm sharing wang chung...you may be evil.

Now that puppy...I got the yen...if I hold out, maybe it will pass iffen I don't spot it at the humane shelter when I take my check by.

Deb said...

morning...yawn...sipping coffee...
I plan on making dlyn's apple cheese crisp saturday for our hunkerdown football rival game.
thanks..now I will be wang chunging all day but I'll tell you, it will conflict with the Wilbur song which I watch with my grandson every now and then...book club...ouuhhh..yeah, separate blog for that. I can't watch horror movies but I love Criminal Minds...
hmmm...

Starwoodgal said...

Apple Cheese Crisp, hormanes, and 80's music. FABULOUS!

Caution Flag said...

Maybe I'm hormonal, too, because after 20 years of teaching lit I find that I really don't want to hear what everyone thinks about every discussion question.

Ew! That was bad. Sorry. Give me a couple of days and then I'll happily join your book club!

Keetha said...

You did not just say Everybody Wang Chung Tonight. Great. Now it's in my head, too.

What do you mean USED to pronounce it "thee-ater"? How else would one say theater? :-)

I've tried to participate in online book clubs before but I never found one that took. I'd be interested in yours. Maybe some smart person can tell us how it should work.

I'm over this election. Much looking forward to Wednesday.

Everybody Wayne Chung tonight...everybody Wayne Chung tonight...
Oh, the puppy may be hormonal. I got one not long ago. I already had two dogs. It was hormonal I think. I can't suffer fools too well either lately. It makes my face flush just thinking of all of them.

KD @ A Bit Squirrelly said...

I had a hysterectomy and a week later we got a dog. Coincidence? I think not.

Putz said...

no, don't do a book club , you might include the shack by young...that would be a disaster

big hair envy said...

Mischief night? TMI. Oh, does it have something to do with Halloween? My bad.

YES. YES. YES. DO THE BOOK CLUB!

I'm more of a "Kung Fu Fighting" girl myself:)

I know I think I'm making that dessert tomorrow, it looks awesome.

I find the INability to cope with asshats increases exponentially with the number of same I come in contact with ...

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

I love me some wang chung.

Heidi said...

Wow! 'Everybody wang chung tonight'....there's an oldie. Apple cheese crisp sounds fantastic! I like any food with the word crisp in it.

Sandie said...

I crave a puppy every time one of the kids has a birthday---it's definitely hormonal.

annie d said...

Oohh, book club. How about "The Red Tent" by Anita Diament? I LOVE the term "asshats!!" I've never heard that before....how descriptive and fitting for some I know!

sista #2 said...
