Before we begin, does the phrase “good news/bad news” bring flashes ofÂ America’s Funniest Videos to mind for anyone else? Â You know, during the Daisy Fuentes, John Fugelsang run? Â I may have Tivo’d Â one or two episodes. Â Maybe by “one or two” I mean that I may have religiously Tivo’d AFV re-runs on several channels until they began taking up the precious space I needed for Ugly Betty… Â That stock of AFV always did the trick on $&^**@ rainy days. Â We’ll add that to things I miss about the states… Â I can’t get AFV on the telly in London.
Back to the point.
Good news: On Saturday we slept until almost nine. Â I went to the gym. Â Before hitting the shower, I popped over to this new website I found viaÂ Cake Wrecks – for dinner ideas. Â Pioneer Woman may be an omnivore, but I am getting pretty crafty at adapting recipes – and that recipe with apricot preserves and ketchup was intriguing enough to have me making a grocery list.
Bad news: I got distracted by this aforementioned new website I found via Cake Wrecks. Â [WARNING: Ladies, click the link that follows at your own risk. Â Hours may be lost. Â Good news: Hours may be lost.]Â Â Pioneer Woman could be selling her love story, but she gifted it to me and you…
Good news: It started to rain. Â I no longer felt so guilty as the time slipped by without a trip to the grocery or that shower I needed.
Bad news: It never stopped raining and I never got groceries, though I did manage the shower bit and a mid-day snuggle.
