list time

1. Driving home from work I heard Feed the Tree by Belly on the radio. I haven't heard that song in yeeeeeears. Quite possibly since high school. I had actually forgotten it existed. Yet I sang every single word.

2. Sometimes I go through a stretch of time where I just want to eat everything in sight. I don't know why this happens. It's generally not related to anything (that I can tell). But it happens. It goes on for a few days. And it passes. And I agonize over whether to just give in and eat, or fight it. I usually just give in and eat. And then feel totally guilty.

3. So, some of the pictures that were lost have been recovered. Some. Which is better than none. I must keep repeating that to myself.

4. I'm still afraid to attempt to put any new pictures on the new computer.

5. I'm still trying to figure out the new computer. I might be too old fashioned for this laptop type thing...

6. Oh my gosh! I had a coconut cream cupcake. Like, from a bakery. It was sooooooo good.

7. Except for minor things, like bakery cupcakes and restaurant salads with cheese, the vegan thing is going well. I've been collecting pictures of my Vegan Meal Success Stories (I've made some good stuff!). Hopefully they still exist and I'll be able to share more later. (I know you're dying to know.)

8. I finally caved in to Facebook, and I want to know how it knows things. Like, how does it decide who you should be friends with? Because it has yet to suggest I be friends with anyone I actually know or went to school with or anything like that. But it desperately wants me to be friends with Hubby's ex-wife. And two people whose blogs I read but have never actually met in real life.

9. The Plumbing Woes started a domino effect in the house. We now have a minorly revamped kitchen, a new dining area, and a new quilt for the bed. It looks very nice. I have pictures. Hopefully I'll be able to load them and share them. (Again, I know you're dying to know.)

10. Have I ever mentioned that Hubby is a writer? He is. He currently has four books of poetry. He's going to be doing a reading at a local cafe for National Poetry Month in April. I'll share more details when I know more details. (I know you're dying to know this, too.)

Bonus! 11. I've learned that, in addition to Every Little Step I Take by Bobby Brown, another song I will never shuffle through on my ipod is Rock Me Tonight by Billy Squire. No. I have no idea why. (For either of them.)

Facebook keeps suggesting that I be your friend too...it must have something to do with the fact that we have emailed? But, an ex-wife? Ick!

Is he still a writer if he never makes or has time to write anymore?

So much to comment on.

1. The random song lyrics that live in my brain scare me sometimes. I'm sure there is much more important information that should be stored where Celine Dion lyrics live.

2. Me too. It was last week. I'm doing better now.

3. Glad you got SOME pictures back. Fingers still crossed for the rest of them.

4. Yeah, don't do it.

5. We got a new lap top a month ago and it's only worked properly for about 40 minutes.

6. Give me one too.

7. You could start a Vegan blog like the Crockpot blog and then write a book (you've got connections) and make a pile of money! Money to buy bakery cupcakes!!

8. Does it want US to be friends?? It is kind of freaky. From what I can tell, it pulls the contacts from your email, it pulls your email address from other people's accounts, it suggests people who are friends with your friends... but yes, freaky. Still, want to be my friend? :)

9. I'm hoping to start a domino effect at our house this summer. I need to start small so Hubs doesn't realize what I'm doing.

10. Yay for Hubs!!

11. BONUS - this has now been my longest blog comment ever.

I love all these wonderful list items and so happy that your hubby is a writer. So many long to be but never get past putting a few words on paper so congratulations to him.

On a side note, Love Rock Me Tonight as it was my first concert ever!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

I can't wait for some of your vegan success stories! Also, good luck with the new laptop. It always feels like getting a new car to me. You've to to figure out what all the buttons do, where to put your hands, how to turn on the radio ...
