Free books in Brislington, Bristol, UK | Arizona car dealer sells $300 cars [Feb. 27th, 2009|05:46 pm]

I would have rented a truck, or a lorry, haha.

I'm across the ocean, but I cannot imagine what a wonderful time everyone had, getting their free books out of that warehouse.


In other bizarre news, Lamb, a car dealership in Prescott, Arizona, is getting rid of a lot of used cars this Saturday for $200-$300 each. What the heck? They've been playing the ad on the radio over and over for a week. People are going to end up sleeping in their parking lot to get the deals. (I don't need a vehicle or know anyone who does.)

My hubby rarely gets excited, but... / Mamma Mia! the movie [Feb. 22nd, 2009|03:03 pm]
[Current Mood |hungryhungry]

My hubby rarely gets excited, but a Canadian company in Toronto is calling him tomorrow (they say) to talk about a computing project. Needless to say, spouse is boning up on the specific topic and getting all intellectually excited. I don't know if anything will come of it, but they saw some of his work and were impressed, so they might want him for something special. I like it when he is jazzed about stuff, because he is pretty low key and it is good to see him get excited about something.


I got my hair cut and I like it. It's short with lots of layers. Hopefully, after I wash it, I can make it look as good as the stylist did. I bought some of her salon shampoo & conditioner and gave her a big tip, because times are hard and everyone needs a little economic stimulus, right?


The huge piles of dirty snow are melting and it is really superb outside, the air is cool and fresh (50-ish Fahrenheit) and the sun is shining.


I'm still editing a LONG poli-sci book, and I know I shouldn't take work home, but I need to get it done by Friday, including a monster bibliography, so I have had to work all weekend.

While I was editing, we watched Mamma Mia! with Meryl Streep and she sings! She sings well. Pierce Brosnan sings, too, and I can forgive the clunker notes because he's so damned pretty to look at, and of course, there is that UK British accent. Oh gosh, the Greek island scenery was terrific. Sometimes I can't believe I have never been to Greece or Italy, and here I am half a century old (plus one) and have never seen anywhere outside of my own borders but Canada (which I love) and Mexico. I liked the movie. It's quite an upper.

I hope by the time I can afford to travel that I will still be able to walk. In the meantime, I live vicariously through books and movies and sneak peeks of Youtube videos when I should be working. Like now, even though it is Sunday.

I have four generous chicken breasts in the oven, smothered in all kinds of herbs and with a liberal bath of lemon juice and a shot or two of olive oil. If the broth comes out good, I think I want to use it to make rice or even orzo Kashi pilaf. A salad on the side, please.  Simple pleasures are the best.

Just the facts [Oct. 30th, 2008|04:36 pm]
[Current Mood |anxiousanxious]

Yes I have a breast lump.

No it doesn't look like cancer.

I was told to go back to my doctor and ask for more definitive tests to be run.

If it gets bigger, see a breast surgeon.

Now you know all I know.


Thank you for the breast support. I had to say that because I am just naturally funny like that.

Got this from a dear LJ friend. Pass it on! [Oct. 30th, 2008|11:55 am]
Copy this sentence into your livejournal if you believe in marriage between any people who wish to marry, be it a man and woman, man and man, woman and woman, man and woman and woman, whatever; and you don't want it "protected" by the bigots who think that gay marriage hurts it somehow.

Microsoft Word 2003 question (if anyone knows) [Oct. 30th, 2008|10:12 am]
[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

I'm formatting a scientific research report and have created custom styles for four levels of headers. When I edit the document and add the custom formatting, then e-mail it to my client as a .doc file, do the custom styles also transfer along with the document?
I can't seem to find this answer anywhere.

Thanks, in advance.
