I was talking with a friend and we both know people who have been on TV game shows, one of her friends was on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire and my first babysitter was on The Price is Right. I ALWAYS wanted to be on Jeopardy!, was even on the quiz bowl team in HS and for a brief time in college.
My local NBC affiliate and the Today Show showed a clip of a lady who had her cats' fur spun into yarn and KNIT a sweater out of it. The poor anchor on Today couldn't keep a straight face while introducing it. I decided to see if this was common and I had just been living under a rock.
Apparently I WAS under a rock. :rotfl: This stuff is all over the web!
Knitting With Dog Hair: Better A Sweater From A Dog You Know and Love Than From A Sheep You'll Never Meet (Paperback)
by Kendall Crolius (Author) Apparenlty there was a need...
I don't have time to send out GBs to all my buddies, but wanted you to know that I hope you all have a great day, whether you are currently attached a getting all kinds of good stuff, or bitching about it with other single friends.
If you are single, just rent Apocolypse Now and drink some beer. I did that every year with all my guy friends in college. Nothing is more anti-VD than a good psycho-war movie!
I did a search and didn't see any other reviews for The Squid and the Whale, so I'll throw my 2cents in.
This is the story of a family going through a separation and divorce, and all the troubles "Joint custody" cause. I am a lucky girl and my parents have been together for 35 years, but I recognized many of the situations from my friends lives.
I totally recommend this movie, it def has adult themes (nudity and sex) and bad language, so if you are offended by this stay away.
The patriarch (Jeff Daniels) of an eccentric Brooklyn family claims to once have been a great novelist, but he has settled into a teaching job. When his wife (Laura Linney) discovers a writing talent of her own, jealousy divides the family, leaving two teenage sons to forge new relationships with their parents. Linney's character begins dating her younger son's tennis coach. Meanwhile, Daniels' character has an affair with the student his older son is pursuing.
Really great performances from the cast, and a really believable story.
