hey, check out fabio's drunken red spaghetti on yahoo today! a great way to use up that gallon of cheap red wine left over from the holidays, or a good excuse to go out and buy more. the recipe sounds good even before you start drinking. a great idea for valentine's on a budget--a great way to merrily drink and cook the evening away, with or without a lover....:)

mangia!

Move over Frank.You are not the only dummy here.

I reached under my computer to toss something in the waste basket. When I pull my hand back out, I hit the thick scab from the dog scratch right on the edge of the desk. It caught and took some skin with it. That was two hours ago. I thought I was going to have to go down to our local ER. I couldn't get it to stop bleeding. I desperately need to take a shower. I know what I can do. Last month when I had the GI infection, my medical center sent me a whole box of rubber gloves. I have very small hands and they come way up my arms. I can cut the fingers off and just use the top half. That way I won't have to remove the bandage. And the rubber gloves will put more pressure on it to help control the bleeding.

Frank if I kick you, will you kick me?

You're a lost cause!

The rest of the world thanks you for getting this abomination off the shelves, protecting the young and innocent.

OK, what I'm now doing is trying to turn my computer off. Trying. Trying. That little square on the top right isn't there. I feel like screaming. Mostly because when my husband goes to turn the computer on in a few hours (I think it's about 5 a.m.; that square isn't showing up either) he'll have a temper tantrum.

After spending yesterday morning at the dentist and yesterday afternoon at the tax lady's, I'm planning a walk in the park to recharge my batteries. I've already fed the pets, so just have to eat breakfast and put the trash out; and get my hat and binoculars for bird-watching. And a snack. And a bottle of water. Hmmm. Nothing's simple.

Yeah, sounds like a tough life.
