Little Friday

I'm going totally random a day late!

What is "Little Friday"?  That would be Thursday.  I guess it makes people feel better when they can have 2 Fridays in a week.

I found the most awesomest banana muffin recipe, courtesy of Cat Can Cook.  To get the recipe, click here. The only thing I did different was use 5 bananas, just because that's what we had.

We finished watching The Tudors.  If you haven't seen it but may be interested, be forewarned that it should not be watched with little ones around.  I'm sure the makers thought they had to show everything in the first season to get people to watch it, but personally I don't think it was necessary.  It was neat to watch it with a computer nearby to check the historical facts.  They seemed to do a pretty good job with sticking to the facts.  Now that I know I can watch "Pillars of the Earth" through Netflix, I'm going to get caught up on that.

I saw that Rick Fox was voted off of DWTS Tuesday night.  I didn't see him actually get kicked off since it was election night and we opted to watch The Tudors instead.  Poor Rick.  I'm really surprised Bristol is still there.  I hate to sound like a coldhearted gritch (new word courtesy of southlakesmom at I didn't know THAT!), but I think they were going for the sympathy vote for Jennifer Grey.  I get that she hasn't been done with chemo for that long, but she does have the dance training, so I'm thinking that with her being in jeopardy last week, the producers thought they had to do something to keep her from going home.  Brandy:  Can anybody be more full of herself than she is?  Get a grip.

I can't believe I forgot to participate in A Wee Bit of Me yesterday. I saw it last week at A Defined Life but completely forgot about it Tuesday night.  I'm hearing some rumblings about other people starting up a new meme, but I don't think it's happened yet.  Any suggestions?

MS had his first voting experience on Tuesday. Going into the building he said he didn't know who to vote for, so we stopped at the sample ballot outside the door so that he could review it.  

The meteorologist says we're in for some cold weather by Friday:  the high is only suppose to be around 49.  And, we may see some flakes flying around.  Guess I'd better get the hot chocolate ready for the rugby game on Saturday!

The meteorologist wasn't my favorite meteorologist, but it was his co-worker...who I met last Thursday at the football game.  Yes, I have no shame.  One of his sons is on the football team we played, and another son is in their band.  He said the tv station asked him to do a remote broadcast from the game, so he jumped on it.  He was such an incredibly nice guy.  I should've had the camera guy take a picture.  Maybe next time!

  1. I'll have to check our The Tudors. Sounds intriguing, but I hate when they include a bunch of stuff they don't need to just for sensationalism.

    I felt really sad for Rick Fox, he had done a fabulous job. It really is time for Bristol to go, she's just not in the same league. I have to disagree about Jennifer though, I definitely thought she was the best one Monday. She was awesome.

    I'm hoping Brandy's the surprise elimination next week--can't stand her.

  3. The Tudors, David and I watched it last year on Netflix. That king was something else, wasn't he? Ruthless and vain are understatements.

  5. always fun with the kids get to experience their right to vote for the first time!!

    I like Little Friday; I hadn't heard that term before

    I heard good things about the Tudors, just haven't gotten around to watch them (are they on HBO or Showtime) We don't pay for any extra premium channels so that's maybe why I haven't watched them, LOL

    I don't know, hot chocolate and rugby sounds like a great way to spend part of the weekend. It was 98 degrees here yesterday so I think I bit cooler could be nice indeed!

    betty

  6. My plan is to put a link on my blog next week...it will be random related.

    I liked The Tudors. I thought Pillars was well done. Also not to be viewed with children around. But it was pretty true to the book.

    Enjoy your day. It is gray and rainy here and I should be cleaning house. But here I sit. I'm going now : )

  7. I totally wanted to grab MW for a photo op at the Race for the Cure Saturday. Dang, he is just so cute! But since hubby was by my side I decided to let it go. LOL

  8. I couldn't believe Rick Fox got the boot either! And he was doing so good, improving every week! Drat it all anyway!!
    The muffins sound wonderful and I just may have to give them a try!

  10. I don't really follow DWTS but I do know that Bristol should be gone. First vote, how exciting. We do all our voting from home now and I really like the relaxed feeling. What fun meeting the meteorologist. Have a great weekend.

  11. I don't have any problem with Rick Fox getting cut; he was nice to look at, but I thought they were an odd couple, physically, and he didn't seem to me like he was dancing as well as others. I also cannot believe Bristol is still there--that is really odd.

    One of these days, I will start watching the Tudors...

    Have a great week!
