Somewhere Only We Know...

Saturday, February 24, 2007




I'm sure 1 out of every 3 of you has been watching or is watching American Idol this season. We love American Idol at the our house, because, after all, we are American.

My favorite male contestant this past week was Blake. He sang a Keane song, "Somewhere Only We Know," and I thought he was the best male vocalist (the last guy might end up being really good, but he needs to grow some hair...just give me some stubble!). This song is probably my favorite song on the February Banana Republic CD, and there are even 4 Keane songs on it. Does anyone listen to Keane much? They're very melodic and wonderful. I'm so happy that Blake chose such a pretty song (and pretty unknown, probably). It catapulted my like for him by 1,000x. He was probably known to you as the "Beat Boxer" before this. If you haven't heard the song, I'm sure there's a video of him singing it on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7NfHwgPNEBU), or look on iTunes. You won't be disappointed.

Who's your favorite contestant?

Another question I had today was this (please help): Does it seem like people always capitlize the show LOST when referring to it on cyberspace or in print? Is this because

a) It is their favorite show and they need to emphasize this?
b) They think it is the greatest show of all time, thus garnering all caps for all eternity, in any circumstance?
or c) JJ Abrams & Co. want it to be in all caps, aka The Man wants it to be in all caps?

I'll post another time about my feelings on the use of all caps.

Citizens & Hair

Tuesday, February 13, 2007

A la Julie Kiser's blog, I will make a confession that I just need to accept about myself:

I will never spend a lot of time on my hair, no matter what the style or my best intentions. It doesn't matter what hair I may imagine for myself for X event, or how much imaginary time I budget to "do" my hair: it never happens. I don't have the patience, and I guess at the end of the day, I just don't CARE as much as i may want to. Maybe that's the bottom line. Regardless, low-maintenance haircuts must be mine if they are to be a success.


RIP in a certain way for my beloved Citizens of Humanity jeans that I've worn the tar out of for 4 years now--they have finally bit the dust. This is my very first pair of jeans to have had a huge hole in the knee from actual wear and tear.

Whats the most beloved article of clothing that you've ever worn out?

Lost and FOUND!

Wednesday, February 07, 2007

Thanks for the suggestions, folks. Jonathan found his ring under Red the Kitty's food bowl. Whatever.

...the night we've all been waiting for. Lost's 3.5 season premiere! Yippee!

Mad Search

Monday, February 05, 2007

Right now, our household is in an uproar: Jonathan left his wedding ring on the counter before going to the Y to lift weights. When he just went to put it back on, it was gone.

Red the Kitty is full of mischief. It must have been all his doing. Jonathan just said to him, "Are you trying to make it hard for me to like you?" We've looked all over the floor, under the couches, in the sink... etc. Suggestions?

Will we find the wedding ring? Stay tuned.

Calling all Mothers of Young Children

Thursday, February 01, 2007

I need the official opinion of mothers on taking young children out in 20 degree weather to go shopping for oneself. What is right and what is wrong? Are there enough clothes you can put on a baby of (+) or (-) 4 months old to warrent taking them out?

Opinions, please. I don't want to make a judgment call until I have all the information.
