Thirteen Random Things

  1. One of my favorite bloggers, Lee over at Little Nuances is back online. I'm quite happy about this and I hope you'll check him out.
  2. There's this quote that I'm loving as of late. I just can't bear to put it on my list of faves next to the stuff by Mother Teresa and Emerson. "They say the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. But that's only if you twist the blade and lift up."
  3. I'm really starting to dislike emergency rooms.
  4. I found a new text & graphics tool, similar to Wordle. This one searches google images and blends them with the text you enter. Not sure about the applications because of copyright issues, but it still looks like fun.
  5. My friend Paula posted pictures of the bears in her yard to her Facebook page. This totally made my day. I can't wait to go to Alaska!
  6. Now that the Olympics are over, I need to seriously consider getting back to working out. I couldn't very well go work out over the last 2 weeks. I had to watch those athletes!
  7. I found this great video game for people with cancer from Hope Lab. It's quite a lot of fun. Except when your character dies. There ought to be some counseling involved if your character in the game where you are fighting cancer doesn't survive.
  8. I'm stalled on my current reading project.
  9. Let's not even talk about my current writing project.
  10. Furthermore, Netflix has effectively stalled my movies for the upcoming holiday weekend. I'm media deprived.
  11. Did you know the leaves start to sound different late in the summer even before they change color? Seriously, if you listen they rustle more and just sound more autumn like.
  12. The Anti Cruelty Society has a program where they temporarily house animals in crisis situations including domestic violence.
  13. It's really hard to come up with 13 random things when I haven't written in a while.

Amazingly interesting to follow along with your random sort of made me feel like I was very emotionally listening...since I didn't know what subject was next.

I like the font you used it is very pretty.

I hope you don't have to have too many more hospital trips and send positive thoughts your way...

here is my TT:
