JUST SOME RANDOM THOUGHTS!

I sat around most of the weekend and had time to have random thoughts....

With the economy the way it is and airline prices being what they are, it looks like the holidays will be a time of spending carefully and prioritizing those expenditures.

How does this tie all of the random thoughts below together? It doesn't.

Yes, I am thankful I am securely employed...as of Friday at 4:30 anyway!

#1
Since Christmas flights are out of this world, the first economic casualty appears to be any trips home to see Mom while she's at "The Hotel" as we call it. Since I have forbidden her to say that she's "in Rehab" (see my June blogs!) in my presence, we had to call it something. Lockdown sounded so...severe! She says she's doing better and will get home in a few weeks.

It appears Thanksgiving will be the same as it has been nearly every year I have been in California. Not really knowing what I was going to do or where I would be eating until the last moment! Southern Chris and Lea were thinking about coming to beautiful Claremont for a So Cal Turkey Day but that looks like it won't be happening. I'm all disappointed as I was looking forward to a Southern Thanksgiving!

Please accept my heartfelt apologies as this could just as easily be anywhere USA
but that bucket really lent itself to this blog!

I hate to admit it but I thought Sarah Palin was funny on SNL. I mean at least she made an effort to memorize the lines well enough to outdo Alec Baldwin's dullard reading from the cue cards! Oh, and I almost spit up when I saw the moose during the rap!

I am not sure if I am supposed to be flattered or what but when you get mistaken for a porn star at the mall, do you say thanks? Someone came up to me at Nordies this afternoon when I stopped to get a new tie (It's picture day tomorrow!) and my fellow shopper (eventually) said I looked like Colton Ford. A lot like Colton Ford. I had no idea who that was but thought I should check it out considering my fellow shopper scared me a little. Well, to save doing "The Google" on him...
Former porn star, currently in the music biz, subject of a documentary....

You decide...

Kevin/Colton - I am sorry we won't get to hang out with you on Turkey Day after all :( maybe next time!! I really need to spend some time in SoCal with someone that lives there AND likes it....
I didn't stay awake for SNL but I saw the clips on the Today show this morning...too funny.

Tennessee Ernie Ford? Harrison Ford? Henry Ford? Gerald Ford? Harold Ford Jr? Steven Ford? Lita Ford? Cheryl Ford? Rob halFORD? Maybe. But Colton Ford? Was this person recruiting for Jerry Springer?
