Cause There's a Million Things to Be, You Know That There Are

Here is a photo that I took looking up at a building downtown.

So, the Saturday Scavenger Hunt word this week was chosen by LauraB. from My Boring Life blog. She chose excitement, but I couldn't really play because my life has had none of that in it for the last couple of weeks on purpose.

Well, kids. It's been an EXTREMELY uneventful weekend here again at the Churlish household. the closest I came to partying on Friday night, was shoveling the couple of inches of snow that fell that evening.

On Saturday, Stinky and I went on an afternoon date. Since I didn't get my tax refund after all, we just went to the mall to see a movie. I know we're supposed to be in the middle of an economic crisis and everything, but I have never seen the mall so packed before. Ever. Even at Christmas, there are usually a couple of parking spaces, but on Saturday, cars were parking illegally and behind other cars, because the lot was completely full. Weird.

I did some cleaning this weekend and I did get groceries, but other than driving the girls where they needed to go, I tried to do as little as possible. I was more in the mood to watch. I finally saw the newest version of Casino Royale, Ten Items or Less and a documentary of the events that led up to the black gloved fists to the sky salute at the 1968 Summer Olympics. For the most part, it was some good viewing.

Coadster went to her show choir competition and called me from there to tell me that a girl performed who was in the MTV show Made. She was from Cedar Rapids and had asked to be made into a human beat box. Dude. She totally stole my idea. I asked Coadster if the girl was any good at beat boxing and she said she was alright.

Anyway, I basically treated myself to a special Valentine's Day/Single's Appreciation Day celebration and gave myself a Get Out of Jail Free card this weekend. I bought myself some take-out, treated myself like a princess and fell in love with myself all over again. Who knows? Maybe next Valentine's Day, if I still feel the same way about myself, I'll finally give myself a ring or something.

everyone must have gone to the mall this weekend 'cause the blog was empty.

I did a lot of things this weekend but it didn't seem crazy exciting. The parrot bar was entertaining--though I didn't get any pictures of me with the pirate. :(

Glad you found the love for you.

Well, just don't put out until you get the ring...

Glad to see someone else noticing the recession/full mall dichotomy. I don't get it. Maybe this recession is only affecting the rich?

I have a total crush on Daniel Craig now that I've seen Casino Royale. I've made him my wallpaper-replacing a Stephen Colbert home wallpaper and a Newman/Redford wallpaper at work. I think I'm obsessed.

Yeah. I wasn't in blog world much this weekend. Sometimes I just need a break on the weekends.


Damn. I bet a photo of you with a pirate would be totally hot.

I know. I think I'm perfect for me.


You are so right. If I do, I'm sure I'll just take me for granted.


Or maybe people are just going to poor people stores in the malls, and not spending as much money? Hell, I don't know. Although, my daughter informed me that retail went up by one percent last month.


I don't blame you. He is super hawtt.

Definitely get the ring! I bought myself a dozen roses for 9.99.

Sounds like you treated yourself right. Good thing too, because no one deserves it more!
