I guess what I've written this week takes "Wordless Wednesdays" to a whole other level, no?

I've had a million bloggy-thoughts this week, but no time to sit and let them percolate into full-fledged blogs, so... Here's what you get instead - my thoughts list. :)

*We were invited to watch the Glee season premiere with some of Drew's students. Such fun! When we got there, M, the student whose house we were at, said, "Mrs. B, I got some Diet Coke for you." Thoughtful and BLECH! Sweet that he thought of me and so sad that so many women are part of the dieting culture that people assume if you're a female, you only drink diet drinks. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm dieting (or making a "lifestyle change" as my particular program likes to say), but my thoughts on sodas (and I really only drink Coke) are I'll either drink the good stuff or get something else. Just sayin'.

*When something is happening on the interstate (or I suppose any road, for that matter) that causes everyone to have to merge into one lane, why do some people feel so utterly important that they deem it necessary to fly past all the other people who have already merged and are slowly trudging along and squeeze him/herself in where they don't fit at the front of the line, causing everyone who merged properly and efficiently to slam on their brakes? What is it about YOU that makes you assume automatically that you are more important than the 50 other cars in that line? Do you think that causing the merge to go slower and take longer from all the slamming of brakes makes you smarter because you "outwitted" the rest of us? I'll be honest, there's a tiny, evil person in me that wants to whip my wheel to the lane you're about to fly by in and hit you just to slow you down and show you how "smart" you really are. Don't worry, Drew and Mother. I won't ever act on that. I WILL, however, straddle the lines from time to time to keep you from getting by. Ugh!

*We had a white elephant gift bingo during our family dinner at church last night. I've never seen so many people have so much fun over stuff people wanted to get rid of. The kids were on what can only be described as a prize high. :) It was a blast (and exhausting)!

*Tucker got a Mother Goose book from the leftover white elephant gifts at bingo. She insisted on "reading" it (in the dark car past her bedtime) on the way home from church. The picture above is how I found her when we pulled in the driveway. *melt*

*Season Premiere week on TV -

House was strange and I'm hoping they bring it a little more the rest of the season. I think they thought the news of House and Cuddy being together was enough to carry an entire episode. It wasn't.

Two and a Half Men - I almost spewed my Crystal Light all over the living room more than once during this one. You'd think the storyline would get old, but those writers are friggin hysterical!

NCIS - CRAZY!!! Love this show and SO glad they didn't leave that lady alive to possibly pop up later. Geez.

Glee - hysterical as always. The new football coach is fabulous! Sad we never even laid EYES on Emma.

Criminal Minds - Blew my mind! Tim Curry played the creepiest character ever and he did it well!

Ok, I think that's all the randomness my schedule will allow me today. :) Hopefully I'll get my act together for next week!

Love & Shipoopies,

That picture is about the cutest thing I've ever seen! I know that she and Molly would be fast friends! Molly loves to "read" too!
Sorry, but I ♥ Diet Coke!
Hate it when self-important people rush past every one else.
Love Season Premier week! Have not seen Glee, but fully intent to catch up!

Such a sweet picture of your little one! Uggghhh the car that passes everyone just to get a few cars ahead. I so wish someone would actually swerve over the line & bump into them... sure would show them a thing about being patient!

I haven't found a replacement show for 24 yet. I am thinking detroit 187. We shall see.
Cutest picture of Tucker. She is precious.
