Top 10

  1. Does anyone else think that it's funny that Justin from Shit My Dad Says (Twitter) only follows one person: Levar Burton. Moreover, I'm pretty sure the Dalai Lama doesn't do his own tweets. 
  2. Why do people who drive a Prius or Mini Cooper infuriate me the most?  Buy an effing real car.  Mini Cooper drivers: Want a British car and drive like the Brits, move to effing London. Plus, if you're going to buy German anyway, buy a Volkswagen.  Prius Owners: Want an "environmentally friendly" form of transportation?  Use biodiesel or walk.  Better gas mileage does not translate to "environmentally friendly." Fact. However, I do love that Nancy Botwin drives a Prius.  That's just brilliant.  
  3. I'm going to go ahead and give How To Train Your Dragon, Mad Men Season 3 and Weeds all two thumbs up and 5 stars.  Just stellar.  
  4. I'm house sitting at a house the has an Xbox, PS3, Wii, Netflicks Instant Queue and a enormous HD television.  Slumber party anyone?  
  5. Empire Falls took me 300 pages to get into but the last 200 were probably some of the best American fiction I have ever read.  I've never cried reading a novel (remember how I'm cold and heartless) but there were moments where he took my breath away and made my heart ache.  My only caveat is that Russo uses "batshit" as a noun which I argue is an adverb. But all research points to that it could be used as both. Trickery, I say.  
  6. I watered the lawn in high heels yesterday.  Not my most practical moment of the day....
  7. A drug dealing, Prius-driving, iced latte drinking, Mexican drug king loving, short shorts wearing, single mother of 3 is my hero. For real.  
  8. Yesterday for the first time in 6 days I put make up on, wore a bra and did my hair. Threw on the high heels just for an extra level of hotness.  You're welcome. 
  9. Two friends brought by a mouth-watering chocolate cake (kladdkaka in it's native Swedish) with a note that had Phillippians 4:8 written on it.  I can't argue with either.  
  10. Sometimes you just need permission to let go.  Last night he let go of his fight with lung cancer, took his last breath in his sleep and joined his wife who he lost not too long ago to the same fight.  He will be missed. Our family will miss your friendship, quiet smile, Tuesday breakfasts and a pinnacle partner.  Peace be with you.  
Bonus 11. Coupling validated one of five rules. Rule 2 to be specific.
