Does anybody know ANYTHING about telescopes?
My husband keeps talking about how he'd love a telescope
to gaze at the planets and stars, and his birthday is coming up in January,
so I'd like to buy him one. Any help would be appreciated!
"Met my old lover at the grocery store..."
Goodbye to Dan Fogelberg, who died of cancer. I know it's corny, but I LIKE "Same Auld Lang Syne."
I was flipping channels this afternoon and they were running this poll
on the "entertainment" show Extra: "Who should get the kids for Christmas: Britney or Kevin?" Good grief. As IF that's the public's decision to make. I'm rather shocked they didn't have the ever popular "undecided" option.
I heard the song, "Here Comes Santa Claus" on the way home tonight and I never picked up on the line, "Let's give thanks to the Lord above, cuz Santa Claus comes tonight" before. Yes, I'm sure Jesus is grateful we're overlooking His birthday because Santa is coming.
Last night Mr. G sat me down and said, "Try to remain calm, but I wanted to let you know that I am buying you something for Christmas that you've wanted for a long, long time."
I jumped up and screamed, "OMG!! You're buying me a NEW two carat diamond ring! I gave up all hope after I returned that one, thinking I'd never get--"
"NO! Not that ring stuff again!" he interrupted. "I'm getting you that Chrissy doll you wanted when you were a little kid."
Me: "WHAT?! That stupid doll ruined my life!"
Mr. G: "I thought you said your mother ruined your life."
Me: "Well, of course, my mother ruined my life. Every mother worth her salt ruins
her daughter's life. And if the dads are doing right by their sons, they'll be brooding and emotionally unavailable, dooming generations of men to come. Those are givens. But Chrissy ruined my life because she taught me that you can wish and wish and dreams never come true!"
Then two little tears slid down my cheeks.
Mr. G: "Uh huh. You told me that when you were ten and got that yellow bike with the high handle bars and the banana seat, you learned that dreams really do come true!"
Me: "I told you that? Crap. I thought I laid that b.s. on the offspring. I wasted these damn tears for nothing."
