Random Stuff

It has been very, very, very busy here lately so I haven' been able to blog. I love busy though - busy is good. So here is a random sampling of stuff that may or may not be of interest to you:


1. Espresso Italian Grille & Pub now has a web site. Yep, they not only moved from downtown to E. Main street but they have a fabulous new menu and their (very busy) web master is in the process of putting their web site together. It is at http://www.espressoitaliangrille.com and it looks like this:
A friend and I went out for their Wednesday night dinner special - two entres and a bottle of wine for $30. I had the eggplant parm and my friend had the linguini with clam sauce and it was delicious! You should try it out.


2.) If you are a sewer and an eBayer go to The Fabric Room and stock up on their goodies while you can. They are having a huge sale and I got a ton of sewing machine needles -- including twin needles, wing needles and blue jean needles for a fraction of what they would cost in most stores. Now is the time to do it!


3.) See this gizmo:
I know, it looks funny. But you can pick it up at the Dollar Store for a dollar (amazing). What does it do? Well, if you have long(ish) hair you just pull it up in a ponytail, slide the gizmo on to it, snap it shut, roll it down, twist it around and - presto, change-o - you get this:

Is that cute or what? Now that I am a lady of mature years I think having a bun is quite cool. Plus you can find  videos on YouTube for how to make it. Didn't your grandmother make her bun with the help of YouTube?

4.) I found out tonight that one of my friends, who is a few years older than I am, once dated a biker guy and participated in a cornflake wrestling tournament. I can't think of anything to add to that revelation.

5.) If you go outside in the middle of the night and look up that huge shiny thing close to the moon is Jupiter. Yes, Jupiter! And if you have binoculars to gaze through, the shiny thing behind Jupiter is Uranus. Is that cool or what?

6.) My GoodReads free books finally got delivered (don't get me started) and I will be mailing them off tomorrow. I'M SORRY IT TOOK SO LONG!!!! I'm including a pretty nifty free prize as an apology.

Okay, time to get back to work. Thanks for reading.
