Modern Family is the funniest damned show on television.

I need an idea filter.  I don’t currently have one.  Every idea that floods into my head demands attention and gets it.  Sigh.

I told my mom I want to sit down with her once a week and talk about her life, let her tell me all the stories she always tries to tell me that I never remember – the catch?  I want to record it.  This made her very nervous.

I have more books than I can read!

Desert: take a slice of your favorite sweet bread – say, banana nut, place in a bowl. Splash milk over it – don’t drown it, just add enough to almost cover the bread.  Eat with a spoon. YUM!

The head of IT asked me to bring the work laptop in for a check up. I complied, dropping it off around 10:15 am.  At 11 am, it was returned to me.  “Did you do everything you needed to do?” I asked.  “Didn’t have to do anything.  You are one of the better users, you keep your machine updated and safe.”

That desert above is better if the bread is warm…

John Barry passed away.  You probably don’t know who that is, which is sad.  He was a composer – let me clue you in:

  • From Russia With Love
  • Thunderball
  • You Only Live Twice
  • Diamonds Are Forever
  • Moonraker
  • Goldfinger

Not impressed?  How about:

  • The Magnificent Seven
  • The Lion in Winter
  • Midnight Cowboy
  • Born Free
  • Somewhere in Time
  • King Kong
  • Out of Africa
  • Dances with Wolves

Wow, right?

Rest in Peace, sir.

…I should be sleeping.
