I think I’m up for a good ole “Brain Dump”…..got lots rattling around in my head and just might need to purge to make room for more interesting things to think about! I’m one of those creative types, so I have an overactive imagination and thought process…..so, sometimes I just get so much going on in my mind that I think my brain is going to explode! hahaha How’s that for a nice mental picture as a framework for this post????
OK – so, first up – TV!
I’m really excited about the new fall line up on network TV. This is the first time in several years that I’ve actually thought this was a possibility, let alone believed it!!! But, it’s true. From what I’ve seen of the shows that peaked my interest, so far, I think I’ll be working my DVR to death and spending a lot of time watching TV! That can be good and bad news………
So, what ones have me all worked up?
I’m reading a book that I’ve really been enjoying — Tim Gunn’s Golden Rules! I love Tim Gunn and Project Runway and anything else he is on. He’s such a character and the things he says are a hoot!!! This book is all about etiquette and what is acceptable in proper society. He dishes on celebrities, Project Runway contestants, and family/friends to make his points – for the good and bad! It has really been fun to read!!!
Speaking of books……I found a free app for my iPhone – iBooks!!! That is where I got Tim Gunn’s book. It is great — I can buy a book, read it, and either keep it for future reference or delete it (but it still is accessible, if I want it again later). I don’t have to have the actual book lying around taking up space! And — it goes with me everywhere — like I really needed another reason to have use my iPhone! So, if you see me out somewhere gazing into my iPhone, I may be reading emails or text messages or checking my FB status or checking out the news, but then again, I just may be reading a good book!!!
I am going to walk in the Alzheimer’s Walk this weekend. I’m really excited about participating in this event! It upsets me so much to think of all the people who are robbed of one of our most precious gifts – our memories!!! I just can not imagine it! My Great Aunt Betty suffered from strokes and a form of this horrible disease. I wasn’t able to see her in her last few years, but kept in touch. It was heart breaking to know that she was so lost and I was deeply saddened by what her children, my cousins, were going through. She was always one of the sources I would seek out for stories of my family and our history. I don’t know if my bad knee will allow me to walk the entire route, but I’m gonna give it one hell of a try — for her!!!
Movies I’m looking forward to seeing soon:
And there are some others that I’ve seen in previews at the theater, but don’t remember what they were…….I’ll remember them when I see them again, though!
Hhhhmmm — doesn’t sound like much now that I’ve written it all down, but that’s about all I have for now…….and DWTS is about to come on with the results from last night’s dances! So, I’m done with my ranting
