Random Friday Stuff

What a weird week it’s been with the July 4th holiday smack in the middle of the week. Wednesday felt completely like a Saturday to me, making Thursday like Monday, and today, I don’t know what I feel, though I guess it feels Friday-ish. I’m all confused!

This weekend, I’m looking forward to catching some of the Live Earth concert on Bravo. From what I’ve heard, the goal is not to raise funds, but rather to raise awareness about global warming, its impact on the planet, as well as things that we can do to reduce the effects of global warming – with amazing artists to watch, to boot. Can’t lose, right?

Admittedly, I’m a big ol’ recycling geek and have been since I was a kid. I remember learning about recycling and its merits in 5th grade, and urging my family to recycle soda cans. I finally won because of the whole “California Cash Redemption” thing – unlike Michigan (which has a 10 cent deposit on cans), at that time, California paid per pound of aluminum returned. I remember one time bringing back $200 worth of cans! My mom and stepfather split the money with me (hmmm… it was my idea – seems I should have gotten a bigger cut on that deal), so I made a nice chunk of change in addition to doing some planetary good. Win-win.

In other stuff, right now, The Princess is at what I’m not entirely sure ISN’T a birthday party for our bratty neighbor. It’s the girl’s birthday today, yes. The Princess said they were having a party, yes. But… I never SAW an invitation. Certainly no one ever mentioned it to me. It’s going to be too bad if my girl is the only one not bearing a birthday gift – but on the other hand, at least I didn’t have to go shopping for a gift for the girl who is only occasionally nice to my daughter.

Thinking about taking the girls to see “Ratatouille” this weekend. I’ve never taken Pumpkin to a movie before, and it’s supposed to be 92 degrees on Sunday – sounds like an excellent day to be sitting in a dark air-conditioned theater. Wish me luck.

Speaking of this insane heat, I just made myself a bowl of oatmeal for a snack. Yes, it’s like 80-something degrees outside right now, but oatmeal sounded good. How warped is that? This is ice cream weather, not oatmeal weather!

TGIF, folks!!
