Top Five

1- bright sunny Sunday, not overly hot, while the mean cheese was playing on the swingset my bubs and I played catch, complete with baseball and mitts....now this does not seem like a big deal to most people but for me, well it was huge. I am not a tom boy, not athletic at all, in fact usually doing most "sports" related things brings back horrible memories of being bullied when I was a kid in gym class. I do love baseball though, so this was wonderful, the sound of the ball being caught in the mitt, well it was like magic. In fact I was not bad at the whole "hustle and catch" thing, barely missing. My bubs was impressed that I was not just a complete bumble-lard out there. Now I have dreams that I missed my calling in life, that I should somehow be a baseball woman...do they even have those

2- Finally seeing Juno, we went last night to the "dollar theater" a couple miles from us...I loved it, though I was distracted by seeing the book microphones in so many of the shots, was this because I saw it in the dollar theater?? Did we have some non edited version of the movie, was this on purpose....it did not bug me as much as the very vocal crowd in front of us screaming about it every time they were seen. Also the fact that this same group of people kept saying how it was not nearly as good as "Superbad", as if they were supposed to be compared.

3- Scribble feeling better and being really cuddly ever since he has been sick and had to be taken care of, now he is s total love bug...Charles Shultz had it right when he said "happiness is a warm puppy"

4- one of my best friends was "diagnosed" with MS several weeks ago...now there was something in her that would not settle with that, she got second, third and fourth opinions on this...now she has received news that she may not have MS....now this is a chance, but it is hope, so I guess #4 on this list should just read, HOPE.

5- going to my favorite Indian Newsstand and finding gems....I love the people that run the place, the conversations I overhear while in there are the reason I love going, there is nothing like hillbillies buying $100 in lottery tickets and trying to talk football with a Buddhist...I dare you to listen to a convo like that and not smile.

I can totally see you as a baseball woman. And when a League of Their Own II comes out, I suspect you will play yourself. Under a stage name.

I am sorry about your friend's situation - I hope it isn't MS, remarkable strides have been made in the medical world and hopefully she has some answers soon.

I hate coming up against those medical situations where you realize it really is more of an art than a science, and that it's possible no clear answer is the answer. Hoping for the best!

1. "Bumble-lard". Hah!

2. You saw the boom mikes because the movie was misframed by whatever idiot was running the projector. If the movie is properly framed, you won't see them.

3. Glad to hear it.

4. Good luck to your friend; hopefully it isn't MS.

5. I'm smiling just thinking about it.

Well, I think that you could join some sort of baseball league in your area? WE are the softball capital of the world...

This means nothing to me since I catch, throw, play and run like a girl...and a very untalented girl at that.

regarding the "MS Diagnosis"... your friend should consider being tested for hemachromatosis... a hereditary iron-overload disease, which causes symptoms throughout the entire body. My mother was "diagnosed" with MS 15 or so years ago, but found out 2 years ago that it was hemachromatosis, and now with treatment, she is symptom free. Blessings to your friend.

I have been using oil pastels on canvas and am trying to incorporate a piece of tin foil and it's not working the way I want it to. You are creative, any suggestions? When I was using oil paints, I could get the tin foil and other alternative things to apply themselves to my canvas more easily. Maybe I just need to play with it some more or consider bringing more mediums to the canvas. I'm talking out loud and this has nothing to do with anything.

I'm glad your friend sought out other opinions. I have a friend who was in an almost identical situation - diagnosed with MS, went through stress and trauma, and then was un-diagnosed with it. I hope things turn out well for her!

#5 is pure comedic genius.

And, Aaron actually knew the answer to that... wow.

I say there is hope in every corner, it just depends on if you are willing to see it... many good thoughts to your friend, as she is willing to see it.
