Collectorofcats For Tuesday, November 27

1. Hubby wanted to try out a new ale he found at the store. Nutcracker Ale by Boulevard Brewing Company. It is quite good.

2. I finally located the city’s recycling center. We were finally able to get rid of all the old newspapers and magazines from our basement that had been there when we bought the house.

3. I brought my ganddaughter home with me and we toured Main street to look at all the Christmas lights. For a town this size, they go all out to make it festive during the holidays. As we passed 2 houses well lit up with Christmas lights, Paige proclaimed “That is where Santa Claus lives and the next house is Frosty the Snowman’s”. 16 months ago

Collectorofcats Yes, it is worth it.

It is good if you like mint. I bought some peppermint creamer for my coffee on a dare. I really liked it. Someone recommended almond joy creamer as well. That was a big disappointment. 16 months ago

Collectorofcats For Monday, November 26

3. Baked chicken breast with cheddar and green chilli. 16 months ago

1. Books or Nooks?

2. Boy bands” of the 60s (Beatles, Rolling Stones) or the new boy bands of today?

3. Original Lorax cartoon or the new version?
I vaguely remember the old one but haven’t seen the new one so I’ll pass on judgeing.

5. The Parent Trap with Haley Mills or The Parent Trap with Lindsey Lohan? Both were equally predictable and mushy. Neither, actually although I think my granddaughter will like the newer one if she watches it.

6. Romeo and Juliet of the 60s or Baz Lurhman’s Romeo + Juliet? I’ve seen so many versions that I’m not sure which is which since there are others out there.

7. Cassette and CD players or whatever the heck these kids listen to music on these days? I like cds. I had an MP3 player with like 200 hundred songs downloaded. I had to plug it into my computer just to charge the battery. And of course, I had to have headphones for the one I had in order to listen. It was a pain. And then it was stolen. I hope the thief thought it was worth it.

8. Classic toys (Sock Monkey and Slinkies) or the new computerized, “smart” toys? Depends. I like that my granddaughter likes dolls and stuffed animals and the my little ponies and has them “talk and interact” with each other. She made a paperbag puppet (drew a face on it) the other day. I do like electronic educational toys.

9. Radio or Pandora? I love Pandora. I’m listening to it now. In the car, I like radio. Radio gives news and weather.

10. Your call: name something old or new that you prefer over the other.

Touch screen phones or fliptop phones with keys. There are times I really just want a fliptop phone. 16 months ago


Collectorofcats Secret Fanaticism

I’m a Billy Joel fan. I honestly don’t know anyone else who claims to like his music as much as I or has ever gone out and bought his album (back in te days of vinyl) the day it finally arrived at the local record store. I use to be a big fan of Peter Boyle of Everyone Loves Raymond until his death in 2006. I also loved Jean Stapleton from All in the Family. I loved her characters in You Got Mail and Michael. I watch Criminal Minsds mainly because of Matthew Gray Gubler. I also watch House and NCIS which although have popular ratings aren’t the fare that anyone else close to me watches. I wouldn’t dare say this outside of 43 things. All my coworkers are into Fringe, The Vampire Diaries, Grey’s Anatomy or one of the CSIs.16 months ago


Collectorofcats For Saturday, November 24

1. Hubby surprised me by taking me out to lunch at a Mexico restaurant we haven’t been before called Mexico Lindo. The food was delicious.

2. Friends offering to help us move the fridge from our old house to my daughter’s house. They have been using a dorm fridge for months.

3. Watched Finding Nemo with my granddaughter. Yet another Disney animated movie I can now chalk up as having watched. 16 months ago

I just watched the trailer after seeing your comment. I have the feeling Cloud Atlas is one of the must see movies of 2012. 16 months ago

I’ve tried ostrich jerky. Does that count? 16 months ago


Collectorofcats Happy 2 years anniversary to Black Kitty and Emu

There hasn’t been a dull moment on 43 things while the two of you have been here.

It was suggested we celebrate with cake and pie.

I’m not sure who is bringing the pie. 16 months ago

There is a game called unblock that is addictive. I don’t have it because I don’t have a smartphone but I’ve played the game. It was hard to give the phone back to the owner after I started playing it.. 16 months ago


Collectorofcats This or that

Socks or slippers? Socks with treads. I gave my slippers to my daughter a couple weeks ago. She had a pair exactly like mine that got chewed up by her dog and asked me if I’d get her another pair like them. Maybe I’ll find some before christmas.

Sweat pants or jeans? I’m a jeans person but I also like pajama pants. Sweats make me feel fat.

Manga or Marvel? either

Fiction or Non-fiction? Both. Truth is said to be stranger then fiction and some fiction turns out to be closer to the truth then you think.

Cut flowers or potted plants? potted plants. I Iike things I can kill. So do my cats. Cut flowers are already dead or dying so they’re no fun.

Herbal tea or black tea? Black. I actually like good strong brewed tea.

Outdoors or indoors? Outdoors in the Summer, indoors all Winter.
Some risk, or all about safety? When I was young, it was all risk. Now it is all about safety. I won’t let my granddaughter do many of the things I did when I was her age. Today it is a much scarier world out there.

Curious, or not interested? All depends on several factors.

Museums or malls? museums.

And, you get to add one. +1

Aragorn vs Legolas neither.

Hardwood floors or carpet I love the coolness of hardwood floors in the Summer. It isn’t Summer now.

Lefty or righty? Right.

Daddy or chips? huh?

Trains or planes? Done with planes for now. I so wanna travel by train.

Music from the 1960s or music from the 1980s? 16 months ago

I watched Finding Nemo with my granddaughter last night. I think it is one of her favorites. 16 months ago


Collectorofcats For Friday, November 23

1. An actually easy day at work. Everyone was expecting to work Saturday (a usual tradition of working the Saturday for straight time following a paid holiday). Saturday work was cancelled for everyone.

2. I helped my hubby with some wiring. Progress is being made.

3. I avoided the crowded stores on Friday. 16 months ago

I am surprised you haven’t at least watched House on the internet since Hugh Laurie is a Brit. I use to watch Dr. Who back in the old days and just started watching it again a couple years ago. 16 months ago


Collectorofcats For the first time in years

I decided not to participate in any Black Friday shopping. There are no regrets. I’m not wasting money I don’t really have or standing in line waiting for something I don’t need. 16 months ago
