my September in review

Wrapping up September with a repost of my Facebook status blurbs.
Now, on to October!


Oh glorious end of summer (yes, please!)! My one and only closet is only 80 degrees today rather than the 110 it’s been for 3 months!  September 1, 2010, 5:02pm

‘Offset your stupid with some smart.’ Truer words were never spoken!  September 1, 2010, 5:40pm

just looked up to find the name ‘Derek Jeter’ still in my Google search box from 5 hours ago. #makesmehappy  September 2, 2010, 11:36am

Sleeping with the windows open on the 3rd of Texas September? whiskey tango!!!???!!!  September 3, 2010, 10:57pm

Did a search for a warm pasta dish using zucchini and tomatoes (fridge clean-out) but when the first result comes up with this, it’s a no-go: “Combine SPAM with zucchini and garlic….” ICK!!!!!  September 3, 2010, 11:52am

Zac Brown Band’s song “Free” is so reminiscent of Alabama in the 80s. Makes me nostalgic for classic country!  September 3, 2010, 4:57pm

If you’re gonna be up at this hour there’s no better song to hear than ‘Guitars, Cadillacs, Hillbilly Music”  September 4, 2010, 2:27am

I feel sorry for today’s kids, futilely pressing Silly Putty against the Google News page. (RT @JaneEspenson)  September 4, 2010, 4:57pm

Have I mentioned lately how bluetooth is my best boyfriend ever? I love how communicative he is! And he helps Phone get along with Mac.  September 4, 2010, 5:00pm

oh, Google. I so dig your fun little graphics!  September 4, 2010, 7:58am

Alright, kid going round and round the parking lot on a new motorbike… You’ve got it! You know what you’re doing now. Time to take it off-campus. Parents, set the child free. PLEASE.  September 5, 2010, 5:29pm

Love the new little iTunes icon! Oh, Apple, your design makes me so happy.  September 5, 2010, 8:09pm

Favorite Quote of the Day: “If you’re not sure whether you’ve seen a movie, you haven’t.” /// Unless you’re my dad and then, yes, you saw ‘The Jungle Book’ at least six times before you actually remembered seeing it.  September 6, 2010, 12:10pm

Note to people of the world: If you step outside to take a phone call because you don’t want to disturb your housemates, please do not speak so loudly that it bounces off the stairway landing. The rest of us don’t want to hear your conversation either. Thank you.  September 7, 2010, 12:02pm

Free movie passes and a Clooney consolation prize? Cool! Thanx, Studio Movie Grill!  September 7, 2010, 3:24pm

How appropriate that I had to defend my grammar corrections (with sources!) to a colleague on this, International Literacy Day!  September 8, 2010, 3:17pm

Wait… is that a break in the storm? Can I make it to Sonic before happy hour ends? ???  September 8, 2010, 3:18pm

Back in my “storm shelter” and checking newscast online. But first… a word from our sponsor. While the tornadoes touch down in your area, first let me help you add something to your shopping list! #sowrong  September 8, 2010, 6:00pm

Grandparents Day lunch (with an AJ special invite) at D’s school. He hops up from the table to introduce his teachers every time they walk past. Awesome!  September 10, 2010, 12:03pm

Is that thunder I hear or just noisy neighbors?  September 14, 2010, 5:41pm

Today’s word of wisdom: “Advice for today: be nice to your kids–they will pick your nursing home.” [RT @RickAtchley via @MaxLucado  September 16, 2010, 9:14am

January Jones judging ‘Project Runway’? Have they never seen her on the red carpet?  September 16, 2010, 9:52pm

So, who among you can tell me about Stephen King’s ‘The Colorado Kid’? Scary? Weird? Tame?  September 17, 2010, 9:17pm

feeling icky es no bueno  September 18, 2010, 1:05pm

A ‘Band of Brothers’ afternoon? Is there a holiday I don’t recall or is this just my lucky day?  September 18, 2010, 1:35pm

Watching the most boring film with the most charming actors. Love in the Afternoon. If it weren’t Audrey & Gary Cooper, I’d be done by now.  September 19, 2010, 12:44pm

Although, now I won’t be able to get that silly waltz out of my head. #adnauseum  September 19, 2010, 12:54pm

Aircraft dangerously close to my roof. I don’t recall giving permission to buzz the tower.  September 19, 2010, 4:32am

Oh my goodness… Don Draper’s really bad day is the best laugh I’ve had all year! Such tears and guffaws, I had to replay 3 times! #awesome  September 19, 2010, 9:46pm

After 10 minutes wrestling with shower hooks and wondering why I couldn’t snap plastic apart to replace a liner, I realized the clasps *slide* apart. #moron  September 20, 2010, 7:35pm

So, when did Billy (ahem) *William* Baldwin start channeling Alec? Once upon a time they were distinguishable from each other. #Parenthood  September 22, 2010, 10:22pm

phrase of the day: “with all the eloquence of a psychotic horse” // yup. this is pretty much where I live. thanks for the phrase @thepioneerwoman  September 22, 2010, 11:49am

Barely three days into the new TV season, and we have our first casualties. So long, @CW_network. I hardly knew ye.  September 22, 2010, 7:17pm

Dreamed about a box full of salads last nite. Lettuce & tomatoes & bacon bits & boiled eggs. I think my subconscious is nagging.  September 22, 2010, 8:21am

In writing about one of my favorite book series from childhood I am suddenly reminded how much I adore the name “Wynn.” How could I have forgotten?!  September 23, 2010, 11:20pm

So, one of the FB ads in the margin is asking me, “If your life was made into a show, would it be worth watching?” Once upon a time I would’ve said, “Uh, no.” But that was before Paris Hilton became a celebrity and people with no talent could get airplay on radio and TV. Maybe it’s not so far-fetched, after all. #notagoodthing  September 23, 2010, 5:15pm

No matter how much I try, I just can’t enjoy the music of Taylor Swift. #notreallycountry  September 24, 2010, 6:24pm

I’m considering a new blog series on discovering town history and finding interesting places to write about. I know nothing at all and don’t really know where to start researching it. Would love some ideas on places with great stories/history as well as where to look for info (other than the library, I’m guessing). Any thoughts, McKinney folks?  September 24, 2010, 7:11pm

Seriously diggin’ Sela Ward on #CSI:NY. Already she feels like the show’s best character. Love a profiler! And so happy for new #Sinise  September 24, 2010, 8:37pm

I wish we could call friends & families in tents – but what could I tell them? Nowhere to go for shelter in #Haiti. [RT @troylivesay]  September 24, 2010, 8:38pm

And lovin’ ‘Blue Bloods’ too! It started off like Law & Order (which worried me) but now it’s more like “L&O-Brothers&Sisters-in-Magnum’s-Boomtown” But really good. I do love me some Detective D.Wahlberg!  September 24, 2010, 10:00pm

open windows and magic numbers… this is my Autumn  September 26, 2010, 10:47pm

Is it a rule that American presidents turn and wave just before stepping into Marine One? Seems every single one has done it, every time I’ve seen them.  September 28, 2010, 6:39am

I just had a shiver and put socks on my feet for the first time in 5 months. #mykindofweather  September 28, 2010, 7:05am

Well, it happened. #GLEE made me like even Britney’s songs. No stopping the #Gleeks  September 28, 2010, 7:27pm

The benefit of editing an alien in #Photoshop is that you don’t have to worry about the skew when resizing. Just looks cooler when warped!September 29, 2010, 12:50pm

Watching premiere of #Undercovers. So far, not impressed. Kinda bored, actually. Have I been spoiled by Sydney, Bourne, and M/M Smith?  September 29, 2010, 6:45pm

Hmm… it’s 10 degrees warmer inside than outside. No breeze thru windows. Way not cool to make me turn on a/c again. #pushthroughthepain  September 30, 2010, 6:41pm

And I check my email to find an ad for Dippin’ Dots! Seriously, warm weather. Not. Cool. (no pun intended)  September 30, 2010, 6:43pm
