I’m sticking my head out of the greed-fest (aka Bloggy Giveaways) I’ve been in the past 2 days to post. Seriously, there are like 600 contests right now. 600 things I apparently need more than sleep, tv or a clean house. Ahem. I was going to link to a few of my faves, but I’ve entered so many I’d never be able to find them again.
The post after a big bloggy shindig is rough. I want to be entertaining and personable in case anyone actually decides to come back and visit me. (How could you not want to re-visit this purpleness?) But I’m still a little blogged out. I just can’t think of an interesting, timely or even random to talk about.
But that has never stopped me before…
Last night we went to PF Chang’s (hello spicy chicken!) with one of our greatest friends. He and his wife were one of the couples that we worked with while starting the church in Florida. We moved away from FL in 2003 (or was it 04?). Anyway, seeing him again last night we fell into our comfortable relationship as if we had just played cards at their apartment the night before. It’s the best to have friends like that. I miss them enormously!
In Atlanta, I don’t feel friendless by any means. But our friends are more his-hers. My sisterchicks are here. Les’ bff is here. We just don’t have many couple friends. Maybe we’ll cave and join a small group at church. Maybe.
Onto something else completely riveting…
LOST begins in two days!
Lost BEGINS in two days!
Lost begins IN two days!
Lost begins in TWO days!
Lost begins in two DAYS!
I cannot. cannot. cannot. cannot. wait. I think it’s an even bigger deal because of the silly writer’s strike. (Not that the writers are silly, it’s just silly it’s gone on this long. IS ANYONE LISTENING?)
However, if the first flashback (*gasp* or flashFORWARD) is about Jack or Juliet I will just GAG.
And the last bit of gripping information for this post…
Did you watch the State of the Union last night? I watched
slept through some of it. I mean, I’m not big into politics. Speeches are just speeches to me. I’m not sure if I’ve ever heard an interesting one. But I thought it was odd that a president who is SO BEHIND in the polls, who is HANGING BY A THREAD, who is the MOST UNPOPULAR president ever (do you hear the sarcasm?) was applauded a billion times. I almost felt like saying, “Seriously! Stop clapping. We get it!”
What was really intriguing is all the autographs he was signing at the end. They weren’t regular folks like us, it was all the Senators! They were standing in line to get his autograph! I don’t know, it was just an insight into the government I’d never seen. I don’t think I thought the Senators and the President were buds, but this was just funny to me. They all wanted a piece of him.
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got. If you’re here because of my delicious Sarah Jane giveaway, please know I’m generally more interesting…generally.
