Asta 2

Before I Forget.....

Happy Birthday, superplin! I hope you managed to finally suss out your plans for today and have some well deserved fun and relaxation.


It boggles my mind just how mych I can get accomplished when I put my mind and aching body to it. ;p Thanks to lynnb and dragonfly0303 coming to visit next weekend I decided to take th eopportunity to whip this apartment into shape. Yesterday, following a couple hours at work and lunch with another friend named Lynn I shopped till I dropped - Bed Bath & Beyond, Target, Hallmark Store, fabric store, Office Max, and Meijer (think Super WalMart).

Then began the cleaning. I can't even recall the last tine some parts of this apartment have been cleaned. Which probably explains the dust bunnies waiting to attack and paperwork dated 2001. And I *finally* managed to get a window treatment up on the living room window - hence my rare visit to the fabric store - which I managed to do for $20. Having price shopped, it would have cost me $60 for only a slightly more finished look.

Oh, I finally caught this past weeks Smallville. Can someone explain to me how Tom Welling has gotten better looking? It's a good thing too because it's what keeps me tuning in. Granted the writing has never been outstanding, but ripping off Terminator 2? I was already rolling my eyes at the new 'sexy' Lana. :p

Fifteen minutes into Desperate Housewives and it seems very promising.

SexyLana deserves an eyeroll...or a good meteor crushing.

I'm down to watching for Lionel and Lex. Tom is pretty though, especially when he was working on the truck with his great big tool. :D
Well, if it's something you'd intended to do anyway, you're welcome :) Did you make the window treatment yourself? I wish I had that talent.
I'd like to claim it takes talent, but all it really takes is 8 yards of fabric and an aluminum rod to wrap it around. The bigget hassle was getting the 'draping' just right.
I'm looking forward to seeing it. Cindy usually does that around here, she knows how to drape too.
Thanks for the wish! As no one else was free, I made my own fun. ;)
It turned out very well, too! There was even some relaxation in there, so it was all good.
I'm glad you found time to relax. I don't want to check out your LJ someday and all I find is "All work and no play makes Plin..." ;)

He is better looking, isn't he? If he were a better actor I might doubt he was actually human.

I taped Desperate Housewives to watch at a later date. Probably tonight.

What did you think of Boston Legal? It was a whole lot like watching the end of last season's the Practice without all the pesky switching back and forth with the old Donnell firm. Which means I enjoyed it.

Hee! Too bad he isn't a better actor I can only imagine how obssessed I would become. Oh, wait, I do know. Two words: Josh Duhamel. ;p

I enjoyed it. Looks like they replaced Generic Blonde Attorney Jessica Capshaw with Generic Blonde Attorney Monica Potter, but, overall, I like the cast they have. Alan dealing with the little girl was adorable. And I was really happy to see taht David E Kelly decide to cut back on the off the wall behavior.....of course that ended after about 45 minutes when Al Sharpton showed up. Great speech though.

I knew it didn't seem right for Monica Pottser to be there. It was supposed to be Jessica Capshaw. But being a fan of neither, the change doesn't really matter to me.

Al Sharpton was a surprise. He left poor Sharon Lawrence with little choice. I really don't want this show to become "Ally McBeal" so I was happy Kelly reigned it in a bit. Offbeat is great as long as we don't get slammed over the head with it.
I think Tom Welling's face has finally sloughed off the last of adolescence. But no amount of better looking can counteract the horror of Super!Lana. Why couldn't she have just stayed in freaking Paris? Why?!?

He hasn't actually gotten better looking, you know... It's just, over the summer, you start to forget, y'know? Then when the new season starts, you're pole-axed yet again.

It's quite a lovely feeling, though. :P
