Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea
Its Friday!!!! Thank goodness, this week went by SOOOO much faster then last week... I really think last week had some sorta jinx on it that was just playing with my mind.  But I've shaken it off & ready for another Friday full of fragments...

*Its coming!  Its coming!!!  I'm talking about Spring!  And yes, while its still below freezing here & way below the normal temp AND we had snow yesterday AND we'll have more this weekend... I can tell its coming!  How do I know?  Because driving into work, the sky was actually LIGHT & the sun was creeping up!!! I'm used to driving in the pitch dark so I had a big smile on my face when I got out of my car at work & could actually look around & see things!  YES... bring on the sunshine!!!

*SPAT OF THE WEEK:  Ellen Degeneres.... Ricky & I havent watched American Idol in the past few years & we have been keeping up with this one... but even since Hollywood week, Ricky just rolls his eyes.  He's not an Ellen fan.  She's always gotten on his nerves - but she shouldnt take offense - I think everyone gets on his nerves! (kidding)  And now, with this weeks competition & to hear Ellen actually critique people, Ricky just moans & groans every time she opens her mouth.  Yes, I will agree - she does seem to stutter & have a hard time getting complete thoughts out... but she's Ellen... and I love Ellen!!!....I wonder if she knows she causes me to hit my husband in the face with a pillow everytime she's on?

*Speaking of American Idol... I remember why I quit watching it... Its the first elimination & I'm already mad... I LOVED the little 70's dude....Tyler Grady.  He's not my fav - Andrew Garcia holds that spot - but I did think he was unusual & fun & a different kinda guy... & he's already gone... sigh...

*In case you didnt know it - I have a pretty cool ride!  Just ask my 5 yr old nieces... I got to take them out to dinner Sunday & on the drive, they were watching my GPS & Sophia said "When I get big, I'm going to buy a car just like this because it is soooooo cool!"... so, there's the key!  If you have a GPS - You are officially cool!  Who needs a Porshe!  A 2002 Hyndai is the bomb-diggity!

*I dont get why people are shocked when a KILLER whale KILLS someone!  I mean, I dont call my Australian Shephard, a KILLER Australian Shephard!  If that was what their breed was called, I wouldnt want to roll around with her & play with her thinking she could take my face off at any moment....Its a horrible accident & it breaks my heart for this trainer's family.... but we have to understand that some animals insticts cant be changed...such a sad story....

*Styx & REO Speedwagon is coming to our area & I just got an email saying I can get tickets, buy one, get one free.... Ricky & I actually saw Styx when they opened for Def Lepard not too long ago... but I'm wondering if I should get some nose bleed section tickets so we can just go to have fun & listen... two tickets for $35.00?  I may have to go for it... Especially because after the TV Show "Sing off" - Come Sail Away sang by that group of college kids - I'm lovin' that song!

*Reminder, in case you might have forgotten... I still cant stand Vienna.. & am preparing my puke bucket for Monday when she gets the final rose on The Bachelor... & then I'm waiting for the "After the Rose" show so I can keep my fingers crossed that Jake WOKE UP & realized he's an idiot...

*...which leads me into... I personally do NOT think Ali is a good choice for the next Bachlorette... am I the only one here?  I think Tenley deserves it... she is SOOO exactly what someone said about her - a woman who stepped out of a Disney movie!  She deserves to find a Prince Charming...

*SHUT UP!!!! I heard this morning that Olivia Newton John is going to be on GLEE!!!!! Singing "Let's get Physical" with Jane Lynch's character, Sue Sylvester....I have to find my leg warmers & head band & the one piece unitard just for that episode! .... the commercials for GLEE are killing me.... I'm missing my Mr. Shue and the wonderful evilness of Sue!

*Next week, I'm supposed to run in a 5k... but its still so darn cold... I'm praying it doesnt snow like it is supposed to this weekend!  See this picture below?  Yeah - that WONT be me... if it snows, I'm staying home under my covers & chalking that 5k up to a loss...And I'll pat everyone that does run it on their back... but I'll be doing that in my mind.... where its really warm & toasty....

*If you want a chance to win a $100 Target card, can you stop at my bloggy buddies page & take a survey.  She's doing it for a school project & as she likes to remind us on there, if we ever want her to graduate so she & her husband can have babies, then we need to help her!  I told her that when she gets pregnant down the road, I want her to give all her bloggy buddies a shout out that we had a part in it!... I'm sure her husband will appreciate that! :)... Anyways - go right HERE ... who doesnt want a chance at a Target Gift Card? 

Hope everyone has a Friday Full of Fun!!!!


  1. What a week for sure. I am with you on the Bachlorette thing for sure. I would love for Jake to pick Tenley but if he does not then she should get it. They say it is a strange ending. But Jake is happy and in love. The whole whale thing was sad. But I guess this whale had a problem and was know to do this. 3x I think I would stay away. My thoughts do go out to the family it is so sad. Ellen rocks..

    Have a great weekend.

  2. I love your fragement Friday posts! They always put a smile on my face because it confirms that if we lived next to each other in real life, we would SO be friends! : )

  3. Rebecca~
    You brighten my day with your Friday Fragmens because we are definitely on the same page about everything...I am not kidding! It's almost scary! :)

    On American Idol, I just love Tim Urban...he's such a cutie pants! In fact, I wish I could get Brittany to meet him! :) Don't even get me started about Vienna...I'll have my barf bag ready to go on Monday night. I definitely agree that Tenley would be ideal for the next Bachelorette...let's keep our fingers crossed!

    Oh, what I'd give to see Styx and REO Speedwagon...LOVE THEM!!!

  4. The whole Sea World story is just terrible isn’t it? I just don’t get why they would keep a Killer Whale there when it’s already killed two other people. I have a hard time understanding that!!
    Loved your Friday Fragments!

  5. I think Tenely is a little too Disney Princess. But I also have never been on Team Ali. She bugs me.

  6. I love your Friday Fragments. And I totally agree about the killer whale. Duh...its a KILLER whale.

  7. watching American Idol I am not a fan but since many of our shows are reruns or missing because of the olympics we have watched more than normally don't know what we will do when it comes back

  8. Can't wait for GLEE to start again!! And you BETTER go to that concert for that price!!

    Hallie :)

  9. Absolutely can NOT wait for GLEE! The only thing keeping me going is LOST right now. lol

    Happy Friday! Have a great weekend!

  10. I don't watch the Bachelor or American Idol. They drive me crazy. However, I've watch Glee on the Internet and I believe I'll start it this season and see how it goes.

    Have a great weekend.

  11. Yeah, running in the snow is NOT my idea of a good time.

    Gabe saw snowflakes today and cried out "SPRING IS NEVER GONNA COME!".

    Yep, I am feeling the same way.

    I love the story of your nieces!

    Have a good weekend!

  12. WOW RJ,
    I could go on and on about this post, but I will refrain. I will say this.... I'm with Ricky on the Ellen thing ~~ drives me crazy ~~ and Tyler Grady drove me crazy too ~~ who shows up in a bathrobe for warm ups and then says I thought we were going to wardrobe? Really? He's not even on the BIG stage yet!!! Okay so his ego was too much for this mid-western girl. His 70's vibe I could dig, if it would've come with a side of humility.

    Does running in your head burn the same amount of calories? Hmmm I hope so, because if that is the case I can burn about 2,000 calories in my Snuggie =)

    Love you friend,
    Thanks for being so fun!!!

  13. I hope it stops snowing but I wouldn't keep my fingers crossed if I were you. There are like a million inches of snow here in Pennsylvania! It makes me want to scream!

  14. Hey, you "saved" all that money couponing - I say you go for the tix - if you get to here Mr. Roboto live -- WORTH IT!!

    and yeah, surprise about that KILLER whale.

  15. I have to tell you that I'm on Ricky's side regarding Ellen. Why she's on American Idol is beyond me. But then again, it's not the first time I've questioned the brain power of television executives. She did a horrible job when she guested on So You Think You Can Dance, and from what I've read in the comments, she's doing the same thing on AI. I've boycotted this year. But then again, I've never been a fan of her. Blech. Can I borrow your puke bucket (before you've puked into it, of course).

    Regarding The's my take. If you're going to open yourself up to finding "love" in such a public forum, then you deserve what you wind up with. Ugh. No way would I let producers "pick" my possible match. Isn't it sad that they picked this person you've ranted about? Sounds like she's a keeper. Not.


    Treat yourself to the concert, my friend. It sounds like something that is right up your alley!

  16. Glee, oh Glee, wherefore art thou, Glee? Can't wait for it to come back.

    Off to win a Target card, er, I mean, help your friend.

  17. I don't blame you. If it snows, I would snuggle under the covers too!

    Who wants to run when it is hot chocolate weather?

  18. I will definitely help your friend out.

    Well, there was those rumors back in the day about ONJ being gay...haha.

    I can't stand Vienna but I don't really think Tenley is the "one" for Mr.Odd-Ball, either. He just seems so stupid to me; anyone so easily mesmerized by an obviously manipulator doesn't get any respect from me. Seriously, you're attracted to a woman everyone hates? Hello....

    The concert will be a blast!!

    Ellen is boring on Idol; trying to be serious, maybe, but I prefer her FUNNY!

    Have a great week :)
