Rest were pretty much reruns I have mentioned before. Well Saturday is almost gone. Only 99 degrees today. Still 98 and it is almost...

Tried to watch The Brothers Grimm, as recommended, with Heath Ledger, but as much as I love Ledger I hate Matt Damon and he pl...

    Watching 10 Things I Hate About You. It is based on Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew. Went grocery shopping this morning a little after 6AM. Got everything I went for even though the flavor of yogurt wasn't my favorite. A good friend, Cheryl Roberts, turned me onto free showings of Shakespeare's...

Yet another blurry, boring day. Did the dishes and a small load of laundry. My dishwasher is a small portable uni...

    Watching Dirty Dancing again. Just finished watching The Full Monty. Today was once again a blur and a bore. Waiting to receive a lot of exercise DVDs I bought on Ebay. Hope this helps to motivate me. Nothing much else is. There were several yoga sessions. Writing here is keeping me sane. However...
