Happy Thanksgiving

I've been hit by a bus.  It's been a rough sweeps...and it ended with me using every last brain cell to write a 4:25 piece on Black Friday deals.  Ya'll know how much I get along with numbers.  My brain is mush.  

But it's back in action tomorrow - for 3 hours of straight live Plaza Lights coverage. Doh!

I'd considered doing Black Friday shopping --  but I may completely crash out.  

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.  I'm thankful for you ... and I'll be VERY thankful for 7pm thanksgiving evening when my wheels peel out of the parking lot of work and I head home for a 4 day weekend to attempt to recuperate.

Well, 5 more days of sweeps. (If you include the wknd.) It appears we may lose. So, all this work and stress ... for a disappointing loss.

And there won't even be the relief of sweeps being over, because THE. VERY. NEXT. DAY. we'll do freakin' 3 hours of Plaza Lights coverage. (Yeah, the ONE year Thanksgiving is NOT in Sweeps -- and we take over the Plaza Lights.) Doh!

I'm not complaining ... so much as I am just worn out. Luckily, I have a four day weekend coming. It's jammed packed, and some stress has presented itself with some unexpected changes to our plans ... but I'm still looking forward to sign off of the Plaza Lights and me hitting the road for a BREAK.

We're going to see Transiberian Orchestra Saturday night. I can't wait. I wish I could go up on stage and conduct the Bell Chorus or whatever it's called. I always pump that song up in the car and wave my arms like I'm conducting. I probably look like a raving loon - but I love it.

Well. That's enough random for now. How 'bout some five?
1. Full. Taco Bell. Blech
2. Tired. Darn early basketball.
3. Whatever the feeling is that describes the desire to get a bunch a stuff done. But the tired feeling is holding it back.
4. Comfy. No bra day. Sweats on. Not leaving house. ( :
5. Ack ... more of number 3. I gotta get Christmas lists organized this weekend. Ack.

1. I could take a nap -- BUT -- not lose any time from my wknd.
2. The Christmas lists were already organized
3. It was colder (yes, I really said that) so we could have a fire all day.
4. I wish my four day wknd was now. Then I could take that nap!
5. I wish I could figure out the draw to Guitar Hero. I find it hard and not fun -- but Jack and Daddy are all over it.

7 Random Things

I don't feel like blogging. But I do feel like being random....and a while back folks ask me to do the 7 random things blog they were doing. So....7 random things about me:

1. I was the first girl born on the Hicks side of the family in 112 years.

2. I don't like anything (except clothes) to touch my knees.

3. I'm watching iCarly right now. I can't help it.

4. Regarding food: I generally don't like hard things in my soft things. Example: carrots in jello. Wrong. Chocolate m-n-ms or bits or whatever in ice cream. Blech. It's too frozen. Oh, and I don't like stuff to touch stuff on my plate. And yes, I do eat things one at a time, and have never understood why that's weird.

5. I like thin crust Domino's pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms and extra cheese.

6. I only HATE/WILL *NOT* eat two foods: raisins, and sweet potatos. There are other foods I don't really like, but would still eat. Those two - never, ever, ever, ever. And YES I can detect a raisin in anything and will spit it at you if you try to deceive me.

7. I have a piece of lead from a pencil in my face, right under my eye. You can see it if you look - -a little gray spot.

How's that for random? Pretty food heavy - but it's lunch time. Ta - ta!

What a Day

I'm so pooped, I won't go into details right now ... but we did our first ever "rush a bleeding gory kid to the ER" experience.

Bottom line: kid will be ok, a little mangled right now, but nothing permanent.  Sheesh.
