Recently, An Island Life was giving away a book…and I just happened to win it (thanks again!!!):
I tried to read at Barnes & Noble one night, but it just hit too close to home, you know? Now I can read it in the privacy of my own home (ha. more or less) and cry if I want to.
An excerpt: “So,” she said, moving away, “now you know how badly someone wanted you, Charley. Children forget that sometimes. They think of themselves as a burden instead of a wish granted.”
That was me…but I still think I was a burden.
Anyway, I’d like to continue what An Island Life started and pass this on when I’m done with it, so if you’d like to read it, please leave a message. I’ll draw a name at random and away it’ll go

Here’s last Wednesday’s picture:
This is the shot it was cropped from:
ROFLMAO! So many of you made me laugh last week! The pierced fish lips, the eyes, the cursed gems…ahahahah!!! I love you guys! Anyway, this week it was Amy who was closest to getting it right: “My guess is a clam holding red earrings!“; as you can see, it’s not a clam, but those are earrings! Thanks for playing
So this week…
What is it?

I was driving to work this morning, scanning through the radio, when I heard “Sweet Caroline”; it took a minute to register that it wasn’t Neil Diamond (I cannot STAND Neil Diamond, sorry to anyone who likes him, but … UGH! Maybe something bad happened to me during a Neil Diamond song [and lord knows there were many opportunies in my early days for THAT to happen] or something, cause, … JUST UGH!) singing it, so I flipped back to listen to who it was. At first I thought it was a failed American Idol joke thing…then I thought maybe it was Tom Jones. The more I listened, the more I was sure it was Tom Jones. Um…no. It was Dave Matthews (live from the Fenway LOL). This blew my mind! Dave Matthews sounds like Tom Jones? Who else wouldn’t I recognize if I heard a random song by (damn, what great sentence structure THAT had!).
So the next song I heard after that was “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World; the first two lines were:
Hey, don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head
Hardy har har…how friggin’ appropriate!

The boys and I had fun with Michelle up in Salisbury yesterday! It’s always fun to have an extra set of hands to hold a leash, steady a dog, free me up to visit with cute puppies or whatnot!
Came home and made a mushroom lasagne, using the sauce I’d had simmering all day. Pictures forthcoming!
Saturday, I did nothing. Seriously.
Friday, it was coooooooooooooold out; Megan and I were supposed to go to McCormick & Schmick’s for dinner, but I just didn’t have it in me to traipse around Boston in the cold. So we went to Macaroni Grill, ordered a bottle of wine, had some pasta and collapsed at Barnes & Noble til they closed. I read Hannibal Rising…not quite a book, more like an outline. Still, I read about 70 pages LOL!
How was your weekend?
