Random Facts

I have nothing of any import to blog about today, so all you get is a few random facts:

1)  I bought a new ipod the other day.  Actually, when I finally decided to bite the bullet and spend the money, it was the day before Valentine's Day.  (clever, huh?) I went to Radio Shack. I wanted the pink one--yes, pink.  I love pink.  Anyway, they only had one in the entire store and it was that boring silver grey color.  The salesperson checked online at every other Radio Shack on the entire island of Oahu and there were NONE!!.  So I bought the boring silver one.

2)  The boring silver ipod that I bought almost sent me over the edge when I tried to figure out how to use it.  The pink one might have softened the aggravation, but not by much.

3)  The boring silver ipod that I bought is great, even though I still don't really understand how to use it.

4)  I keep seeing great vanity plates while I'm driving and can't get a pic of them.  Sigh

5)  I'm currently reading two books.  One is The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency.  (there are about 8 in the series, I'm up to #3)  If you want a sweet read, try these, but definitely begin with the first.  You can actually jump in anywhere, but why not start with #1?  The second book I'm reading is Sherlock Holmes.  I've never read it before and it's surprisingly enjoyable.  I got psyched about reading it after watching three episodes of  a modern-day Sherlock Holmes after Masterpiece Theater (which was showing Downton Abbey).

6)  I'm still working on my table runners.  I brought all my sewing supplies (thread, bobbins, scissors, etc., but borrowed a machine)  This one actually looks better in person, but you can get the idea.

7)  It's been raining here a lot, but hey, at least I'm not shoveling snow.

8)  I leave for my Mexican cruise (departing from LA) to celebrate the wedding of my son and new daughter-in-law in approximately 48 hours.  Well, I mean, I fly to LA in 48 hours and then leave on the cruise the next day. 

9)  Once on the cruise, I probably won't have access to the internet.  I hear it's very expensive to buy on shipboard.

That's my life lately.  I'll take it...

Linda, I enjoyed your post of random facts. Here are my random comments:

1) I used to have an iPod, but someone (who I love dearly) kind of took over on it and now it's long gone. I didn't mind. Besides, it wasn't pink. (Then again, if it HAD been pink, he probably wouldn't have wanted it!)

2) I'm currently reading Michael Connelly's "The Brass Verdict." It's really good!

3) I don't see many vanity plates. But I did just order a set as a Valentine gift for someone (who I love dearly).'s supposed to be a surprise!

4) I can't sew, but I'm sure glad you can! I LOVE my purse/bag you made for me last year!!!

5) It's been snowing all day. Our first big storm of the season. I'm not shoveling, either...but I did have to brush a couple of inches of the wet, white stuff off of my car when I left work this afternoon. That's OK. We haven't had one single SNOW DAY all winter. Now that tomorrow is March, maybe we'll finally get one! :-)

6) I've never been on a cruise, and to be honest, I never want to go on one. But you have fun on yours, OK? And WTML! :-)
