Tiffany lamps, Exorcisms, Protests, and COLD

The ceiling of a bar in midtown that we went to Saturday night with some friends. I fell in love with this place!

So what's been going on other than seeing new bars? Well, we watched The Rite the other night. It was ok. Exorcisms are always scary, but I'm not sure I believe in them, so that takes some of the "umph" out. Anthony Hopkins is a creepy dude though, and the movie sort of made me want to go to Church. I couldn't help but think that maybe it was funded by the Pope.

Operation No Biting Nails is going strong. It's amazing really, considering how little will power I have.

It's COLD here in Houston. 25 degrees right now at 9:40am. Yesterday morning, at 6am it was 68 degrees, and hour later it was 45. They are predicting snow for Thursday night and Friday, and while I know I shouldn't get my hopes up, they totally are. I realize that much of the rest of the country is going through a blizzard, and I'm sorry, really, I am, but all I want is little, enough to cover the grass. Is that too much to ask? Husband has either been offshore or out of the country for work every time it's snowed in the last 3 years, so come on, make it snow, at least for him!

The super bowl is this weekend. Couldn't care less really. It's amazing how little the game matters when your team isn't it in. Nothing against Pittsburgh or Green Bay, but really, could there be 2 more boring teams? There's no story or excitement, at least to most people outside of those two cities.

And last but not least, the situation in Egypt. Now Mubarak says, in his attempt to stop the protesting and the turmoil in his country, "I won't run for office again in September." Well, that's nice and all, but you should have said that a week ago before everyone got themselves all riled up. They want you gone yesterday dude, and after 30 years, I gotta agree. Just an old ornery 82 year old who cannot handle change. I bet he hates the internet and rock music too.

What have you been up to? I haven't been reading blogs like I should, forgive me!

That bar looks wonderful! Love the lamps.

I feel like I'm barely keeping my head above water. As usual.
