Got a good reason For taking the easy way out

Michael're so, so....eye candy!

Sunday Stealing: The Current Obsessions Meme [aka --I've been obsessed with balls here of late...and more here today. GEEZ!]

Book: I'm reading two at once. Well, not two at the same time...that'd be know, during the day and one at night.

Snack: Chips & Chili Con Queso chip dip sounds good right now ---anybody got some?

Jason's is just too convenient to our home.

Beverage: Green Tea with Mandarin Orange is full of antioxidants.

Eclectic --how's THAT for a word?


← TV actor [Yum! Love his sleepy eyes, his square jaw, his humor, his love of movies....I need a cold shower]

Movie actor: Always and forever - Johnny Depp. [a LONG cold shower!]

Actress: Dunno; I'd much rather obsess over the male species.

Ice Age, the Meltdown [it's so darned cute, and hilarious]

TV show: NCIS [there is a reason it's good --see above TV actor!] ---and this IS an obsession. I look forward to him it all week.

I vowed to do more pencil drawing right now...Since the holidays I've drawn some 10 pictures. Not 'obsessed' with it's just relaxing and good to do on cold days when I can't be outdoors.

Band what? Aid? Brothers? Military? [in other words, band schmand....I'm not obsessed with any at the moment]

Not, I'll just make up a title, but--- I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For ---that just popped into my head...'cause I LIKE the sound of it. There are too many I enjoy that I just can't say for sure.

Meme: Thursday Thunks....but it's on hiatus so I guess you could say that it isn't my current obsession, huh?.

Not necessarily 'a blog'...just addicted to working on my very own.

Lover: Ha!! At my age? I'd rather drool at all the hunks out there. Not obsess over just one. Altho, Calvin Klein is quite close-seems somehow I get into his jeans a lot these days. Speaking of C. K......Ralph Lauren for Women has a nice ring to it too. Ahhhhhhh, Ralph fits nicely on my bod!! And to 'top it off'....I have a Ralph Lauren bedcover....I sleep UNDER Ralph each and every night....take THAT ladies and gents!!! Bet you can't say that. [insert wink here]

Bud -I guess 41 years with my Bud can be an obsession, huh? But....seriously, don't even THINK of telling him about my love obsessiveness of N C I S and bedcovers---consider yourself fairly warned.

I always go for my favorite on this..."I have miles to go before I sleep, miles to go before I sleep." ~Robert Frost

Dunno of any peeves that I'm obsessing over, other than clutter and that's always been an obsession with me, not just currently...but I remember my little dachshund's peeve...he told me once --whispered in my ear. He told me: "Taking me to the vet for "the big snip", then acting surprised when I freak out every time we go back? Gimme a break!"


OUCH! That's gotta hurt...

Always and forever on this!! How long 'til Spring Training begins?

Singer: Rod Stewart

  1. hey anni, i must say, i do love your quote! have a happy sunday over there!!!

  2. If I haven't said it before, I'll say it now.. I'm a big Johnny Depp fan too! Haven't seen his movie "Public Enemies" yet, have you? Dear Daughter saw it recently and thought it was good, but she didn't want to say too much till I saw it too... I did post about the big beautiful tote bag I got with Johnny's face on it though, sometime ago! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my Johnny Depp bag! Just found it and picked it up at Walmart, but it is DEFINITELY one of my FAVORITE bags!!.. Gosh if it ever wears out, I should have bought TWO! (0; Oh well.. Hope you're keeping warm this cold winter weekend, but enjoying it nonetheless! ~tina

  3. Awww - you beat me to it this week! Mines up now x

  4. I always hear of green tea but not with mandarin orange. Now the antioxidants just make me feel like looking for green tea with mandarin orange :-)

  5. Hazel I love mandarin oranges and this tea I find and buy is Celestial Seasons tea. Green Tea with Mandarin. It's delicious hot AND iced.

  6. Thanks, Anni. There's a shop along my street that sells imported groceries. They might have the Celestial Seasons brand.

  7. You're just a HOOT! What a FUN way to start a day. Thank you!

  8. I tried to do this one but I couldn't get it to publish correctly.

  9. Loved Nightmare before Christmas! The answer, not the movie as I don't think I have seen it.

  10. Awesome answers...And yes I'll try to post a picture of my current crocheting project. I need to post one of my last one. Anyhow, thanks for reading my answers and visiting my blog! :) Come back anytime!

  12. Great mutterings, I do believe we match 3!

  13. Anni,

    Enjoyed your meme this morning. I'm not sure how long till spring training but will be watching a bit of baseball myself this year. Think I'll be taking the boys to a couple of local games. Lots of fun and very reasonable. Great hotdogs and last year we won the championship.

    Enjoy your day and try to keep warm. I think the boys and I might be venturing out today, not quite sure yet.


  14. This was a great way to start the day :-) I hope your day is as good as mine promises to be.

  15. just did a post on Rod Stewarts Birthday on my blog we agree on him

    sister been drinking green tea I may have to try it as well

  16. Whoa, I would certainly think that sleeping under Ralph Lauren every night would get tiring. lol Okay, I do love NCIS also, well maybe you could say obsessed. I never miss an episode.

  17. We have two matches - LOl

    Page Turner seems to be a winner this week.

  18. I'm about ready for baseball myself. Hopefully, new ownership will give my Cubbies some help.
