Tidbits

Well, my general blogging malaise is still with me, but I’m poking in to share a few brief things.

Don’t forget to stop by this post and let me know who you are!

I’ve tried to deal with the sluggish loading problem by removing some things from my sidebar. It seems to have helped a bit. If I ever get the energy, I might try a new theme and clean things up even more. Or, I might just move the whole thing over to wordpress so I don’t have to deal with all of the pain-in-the-butt issues that come withh hosting my own blog. Meh, I don’t know.

I’ve been baking a lot lately. It seems to be my current way of dealing with stress/creative outlet. I’ve taken a bunch of pictures, which I will one day upload. I’ll post recipes, too. My most recent successes have been breads. I made a pumpkin bread last week that was yummy, but for the fact that it got a teeny bit overcooked around the edges. And yesterday, I made a (white) batter bread that is also pretty tasty.

I’m a little bummed out about this whole Channel 4/Time Warner thing because of How I Met Your Mother. Thank goodness for the Internet, eh? I’m not likely to hop ship to a satellite service, because our cable comes with our condo association membership. Maybe this whole thing will be settled soon. Until then, iTunes will be my best friend.

I have watched none of Heroes (we watched 10 minutes into the premiere and got a little bored) or Chuck. Rand and I did watch Dirty Sexy Money last week, which we both continue to love.

I’ve now read most of A Raisin in the Sun, but have not yet started Of Mice and Men. I’d better get on that, as my class will be starting it later this week. (has anyone seen the recent version of A Raisin in the Sun w/Sean Combs aka Puffy or Puff Daddy or Diddy, or whatever name he’s using these days? I haven’t. Just curious.)

Okay, I need to step away from the computer now. Hope everyone’s having a happy Monday!

  1. I saw the TV movie, but I haven’t read the book in ages. I am not sure how “close” they were, but I did like it. Granted, I was also playing around online while watching it so not much sank in. I remember little about what’s-his-name’s performance. I remember really liking the women.

  2. I feel your pain. Time Warner in my market dropped the NBC affiliate when they couldn’t come to terms. Now I can’t watch “Heroes” or my favorite local news. 🙁

  3. It only loaded slightly faster for me. Your top image was up and then it loaded & loaded. I just upped our connection speed so I’m pretty sure it’s still you 😉 I would bet it’s your MyBlogLog or your Facebook badge (which is showing blank for me, image-wise). That stuff that uses Java, sometimes it’s like molasses to a webpage.

    Have you seen the Of Mice & Men w/ Gary Sinise & John Malkovich? Sinise is fantastic. It’s a good adaptation.
