Links for Friday by the numbers

November 20, 2008 Categories: Books , Football , Holidays , Movies , Television | 6 Comments  

1. Natalie and I went to see High School Musical 3: Senior Year Saturday night – and loved it!

2. The Seahawks’ season is a constant source of depression. You may wonder why I keep watching every game. I’m nothing if not loyal.

3. I can’t believe it’s time to start working on the Christmas program for church already! I’m singing in the choir at our new church, and we’re doing some fun music – Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir style.

4. I’m very. very. angry at NBC for cancelling My Own Worst Enemy. :(

5. Life is one of the best shows on television right now. Are you watching it?

6. A woman came to look at our house today. First person interested in months. She seemed very interested, but we’ll see. If she is, we have no idea where we would move to – right now there aren’t any 4-bedroom houses available in our area. We don’t want to pass on an offer on the house, though, because if we sold it we would be completely out of debt – including the new (to us) van. Finances have been sticky lately. Sigh.

7. I have a doctor’s appointment tomorrow. Don’t want to go on and on about my health, so to sum it up: dizziness and headaches for a few months that aren’t going away, plus a cyst of some type on my wrist joint. I’m hoping he has some easy answers.

8. Looking forward to a weekend of downtime – especially since we cleaned the house today to get ready for the showing.

~ My review of The Grift by Debra Ginsberg.

~ Great post at author Shannon Hale’s blog: How to be a reader.

~ New Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince trailer.

That’s all for this week – sorry it’s slim pickings. Not a lot of time to surf the web lately. Have a great weekend!


  1. This Little Piggy

    Holding you in my prayers! :o )

    (The UK Wildcats are pretty stinky too. SIGH)

    Oh I can’t believe I have to wait til JULY! AAAAAHHH!!!


    I don’t mean to be negative, but I watched MOWE and thought the acting was LAME! I am usually not too picky, but they were all just lame. Sorry ;)

    I am enjoying Life when I get a chance to watch!

    I am so glad you and Natalie got to enjoy a movie together! :)

  3. Carol in Oregon

    I hope you found some answers…or will soon. It’s no fun when you aren’t in good health.

    Lisa – I know it’s silly to care so much about a football team, but I just can’t help it!

    Lawanda – so you’re the reason it got cancelled! ;)

    Carol – thanks.

  5. Tina

    Life is my absolute favorite show! Hope it only gets better!

    I was kind of happy they put off releasing Half Blood Prince because my son hadn’t finished it yet and I would have had trouble making him wait to watch it.

    He finished the book last week and when we saw a trailer for the movie he told me it was the first time he knew what all the parts were referring to and he thought that was really cool! He’s reading Deathly Hallows now.

    Hope your health issues are resolved quickly!

    Tina – I’m glad someone else is enjoying Life as much as I am! Glad your son finished the book. I have trouble with getting my daughter to read a book if she’s already seen the film version.
