Miscellaneous Thursday

Oh, the weather outside is frightful...

Had a heck of a time getting out to the main road this morning.  Took me 3 times before I could get off the slick side road and then a freakin' Focus zipped around me.  How is that even possible?  He must have had a running start.

We didn't have the snow fall that some areas had, but we did have some high winds that left us without power last night.  Headed over to Caity's for the evening.  Big night on the old TV last night.

Any Top Chef fans out there.  The season finale was on last night.  I do really love this show and this year the top 4 chefs were all brilliant.  I would have been happy with any of them winning and I would love to eat at their restaurants. Congrats to Michael for the win, but I really thought it would be your brother Bryan. (And to be honest, Jennifer was my real fave but she only made it to the #4 spot.)

We have to wait until April to see the next episode of Glee?  Really?  I so miss the way they used to schedule television.  I know this is going to make me sound like an old lady, but do any of you remember how much fun it was to get the fall TV guide?  It laid out the whole new TV program schedule in a weekly format.  I clearly remember sitting and reading it with my little brother as we planned out our TV picks for the week.  All the new show started in the fall and they aired all year and only went into reruns in the summer. Does anyone remember that?  This stopping and starting at random times drives me crazy. 

On the same note, Cait just told me that "Chuck" is coming back.  It's been off so long, I thought it was cancelled. all you network programmers...this is so CONFUSING.

I finished in 1st place for the season in our Fantasy Football League.  This is a first as I have never won before.  Yeah me...too bad it was Krissy that I had to knock out of first place in order to win.

You know you are getting older when your friends start retiring.  Granted, here in Michigan, there are lots of people who have been forced to "retire", but it does give me pause.

And thanks to Caity for making chocolate chip cookies while we watched TV at her house last night.  Yum.


  1. Hi Lindalou,
    I know exactly what you mean about tv shedules, they are so erratic!
    I can't believe I haven't watched Glee, have I missed out? I live under a rock, apparently. :)
    I love triple c 's. yum

  2. I hate the new tv programming!! It is impossible to keep things straight. We are a week behind with Glee, so we are going to watch the new one tonight if they have it online by then. I can't believe we have to wait till April!!!! Glee is one of the best shows ever! They did a great job casting - love it!!

  3. Kell, love you picture. You are so cute.

  4. I used to do the same thing with my shows when I was young too. I love the NBC show Mercy and it's schedule is sporatic at best...last night it was the first time it had been on in three weeks and then now it's gone until Jan.
    6th. Not nearly as bed as RUDE! Congrats on your fantasy football win! That's a HUGE accomplishment!

  5. Hi Lindalou, thanks for stopping by. Just got a note from my girlfriend who lives in Rochester, MN; she shoveled 11 inches off her driveway. Stay warm!

  6. Bake more chocolate chip cookies, stay warm! It's going to be a cold winter.

  7. Now I'm craving chocolate chip cookies...

  8. I do remember the days of TV being exciting in the fall and the tv guide and only summertime reruns. I miss those days too!

  9. I am hating the Glee is off the air - I did find on Pandora that you can create a Glee station and I love listening to it!

    I think I will be buying the 1st season to get me through the downtime.
