Repost, kinda - Wife Swap :)

We just got the call from ABC - now that Jamie Oliver is out of the way, our episode has been rescheduled for in the lineup!  Very exciting :) 
So, mark your calendar for APRIL 30, 2010, 8PM [or check your local listings]
Some promos pop up online at http://abc.go.com/shows/wife-swap and we've seen commercials.  Yeah.

You can feel free to become a fan or like my business over at Facebook [http://www.facebook.com/pages/Bats-meow/58362224257].  I'm sure the show will be a hot topic of conversation there :)

hello :)

I'm here. For now. I've missed you all.

a philospher's stone??

Libra (September 23-October 22)
Mexican scientists have discovered a way to transform tequila into diamonds. Even the brands that sell for three dollars a bottle work fine as raw material. The catch is that the diamonds produced are too small to be used for jewelry. But they do have numerous practical uses: in surgical instruments, for example. You now have it in your power to preside over a comparable alchemical change, Libra. What could you do that would be like turning lead into gold or tequila into diamonds?


Lead into gold sounds like a fine idea.  But why... why would anyone want to turn tequila into diamonds??



great googley moogley

so, i've started entering this giant stack of information my father collected into my family tree program [luckily he has documented 90% of it]. someone was trying to save paper, so they minimized the font - it's tiny. CRAZY tiny.  my head is swimming from the squinting.

but... i have found that a couple of cousins share this strange addiction, so i have someone to share my victories with.

yahoo !!


Writer's Block: Back to School

What fictional high school—from tv, film, or a book—would you most like to attend? Or would you rather never go near high school again, fictional or otherwise?
Are you kidding?

West Beverly...

settling in

At home.
Officially jobless.
R is "grounded" due to medical treatments assigned by the doc that would make school difficult today. 

So, I'm back in contact with cousins I haven't seen since 1985 or that I've seen only at funerals and weddings within the past few decades and I'm going to wrap up into a big warm quilt with the wee princess [who really isn't so wee anymore] and enter as much of the existing family tree research into the fancy-schmancy program ;) 

I have my father's research. Some of it I've had for over 5 years.  I have a cousin's research [copies that he shared with my father]. I have my own research.  I have a stack of papers 6 inches tall sitting on the floor at my feet.

Gotta go. Gotta type.

Then to scanning the photos.

Awesome :)

UPDATE: Now I remember why I stopped when I did. Some pages are missing. People just appear in the 1300s in Scotland.  Where the page states "entry 1 on this page is entry 12 on page XX"... page XX is missing.  Grumble.  I suppose I enter the humans and work on connecting them later.  I believe there is just a missing box.  I hope.  I think there were two copies, but I don't remember why...

umm... about that...

e was off playing poker with friends in markleville last night.

the oldest was off playing cosmic bowling and then having a sleepover for a friend's birthday.

the other three kids and i were snuggled up on the floor with blankets and pillows, eating egg and cheese sandwiches, watching practical magic, and having fun.  the girls were HORRIFIED that the witches in the movie didn't have big pointy hats and crooked noses with giant warts ;)  i let them know that in real life, real witches didn't look like that. real witches could be very sweet and nice.

open-mouthed stares.

"real witches?"

... long discussion ...

ending with "so mommy, when can we make spellbooks?"

Writer's Block: Comfort Food

When times are tough or you're feeling down, what's the one food you can count on to make you feel better?
Scrambled eggs with cheese and salsa.  A little gross, I know, but... mmm :)

of course it is

Your Word is "Love"

You see life as possibility to form deep connections with a few people.

Relationships are the center of your world, and you always take time to bond with those you love.

You are caring and giving. You enjoy helping those you love.

And when it comes to romantic love, you feel passionately ... even in a very long term relationship.
