Electric Mayhem rocks!

Love them I do!

I finally brought the first season Muppet Show. I hope they release Muppet Tonight because while it didn't last long, it was so funny. Just thinking about Pepe the Prawn makes me chuckle.

There is a big scandal at my church which originally started as one thing and then everything just fell like dominoes. Now we're burying one of the Mothers this Saturday. She just couldn't take the news. My mind has been scattered ever since. What kind of self-destructive crap do we get into as a result of not dealing with our mess? Drink too much? Overeat? What happens when it drifts over to something very disturbing? How do we get in so deep that we can't get out of it?

Better get yourself free.

The Complete Jane Austen

Just a heads up to Austen fans,

The Complete Jane Austen is playing now on Masterpiece Theater (pbs.org) from now until April. There are new adaptations of Persuasion, Northanger Abbey, Mansfield Park and Sense and Sensibility along with fan favorite adaptations of Emma (Kate Beckinsale) and Pride and Prejudice (Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth). Persuasion kicked of the series last week.

Tonight it's Northanger Abbey at 9pm. Check PBS.org for local listings and to catch reruns.

Thank You Old Navy!

So my mom and I have been singing that song from the Old Navy commercials with those fugly sweaters. After seeing it play at least 5 times tonight I found out who it is...

Ingrid Michaelson

LOVE this! I listened to a few tracks on Itunes so I'm going to pick up her CD this weekend. I love her voice, she reminds me of Lisa Loeb by way of looks (it's not even the fact that she's wearing specs) and her voice reminds me of Feist just a tad.
