I’ve been intending for quite some time to join in on Thinking Out Loud hostessed by Amanda at Running With Spoons. I’m finally getting to it.
The point is to just share some random thoughts about life in general. At least that’s my understanding. I like it!
~Why is it that I haven’t blogged since August and now I do two posts in two days? I have no excuse. I’ve been busy healing from my bilateral hip surgery and I’ve been focusing on that and I promise not to talk too much about it!
~Thinking out loud has to be quiet, because I have a headache that is sticking with me in spite of two pots of coffee. I’ve decided that I’m not taking anything for headaches. Prior to my surgery, I took so many over the counter things for pain, I’m trying not to take anything. I’ve had nothing since the surgery in spite of a couple of nasty headaches. I’ve been working around them. I will survive.
~More randomness-I’m annoyed with myself that in spite of having a Lot of time on my hands during my recovery, I haven’t done nearly enough reading. I did read two books, early entries in the Lisa Scottoline series of Rosato and Associates. I liked them enough but got stuck in the middle of the third and haven’t read anything since. I am chagrined (hangs head in shame.)
~Has anyone else noticed the way newswoman, weather women and traffic women dress on TV? They all look as if they’re going to a cocktail party…even at 5 AM. I can’t quite figure it out. Not to mention the almost identical hair styles on all of them. Long hair is nice, but by the time you get to a certain age, you really should be looking for another choice. I’ve reached that certain age and I no longer have long hair even though I used to love mine. This headache is making me cranky I think.
~I’m amazed daily at either how incredibly clever or incredibly stupid TV commercials are. I love humor and I love a clever idea, but I am stumped as to how some of these get past the ad executives let along the censors. This is beginning to sound as if I have spent too much time recently watching TV, which I have.
~Speaking of TV, I am overjoyed at the number of networks that are now broadcasting Law & Order in all of its incarnations. It has helped me through my recovery especially during the time that I was alone because Ralph was on a road trip that I had to miss in the interest of completing my physical therapy. Also considering the fact that I don’t think I would have been able to ride for the long periods of time it takes to go from New Jersey to Texas to New Mexico. L & O got me through it and I’m eternally grateful to Dick Wolf, creator of the great series.
~Speaking of which, Why am I still in New Jersey and not in New Mexico. I don’t have a good answer for that, but I’m working on that. Trust me, there will be more about that on a future Thinking Out Loud.
I think I rather like this Thinking Out Loud idea. I hope that Amanda and the other people who link up on Thursdays don’t think I’m too weird. Hopefully, they’ll be weird along with me.
