Five on Friday

Yesterday while browsing books on Amazon (I do that a lot) I noticed there are books available free to Prime members who have Kindles. Not the usual free books you can get online, but only only to Prime members who own a Kindle.  I’m Prime, but I’m an iPad.  Waaaah.  I feel so…left out.  How many free books would I need to download to justify buying a Kindle.  hmmmm.  (Please don’t tell my husband I said that.)


I just realized that, for those who aren’t as addicted to technology as I am, the previous paragraph may have sounded like I was speaking in tongues.

Watched the first episode of Don’t Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 last night.  I didn’t expect to like it.  I tried not to.  But I did.  Yes, I’m that shallow.

This week I read a book called You Deserve Nothing. It was meant to be fiction, about a seemingly  high-principled high school teacher who has an affair with one of his students, but after reading it I found out that it was actually a true story cloaked as fiction.  Now that I know I paid that author to tell his story of having taken advantage of a young girl, I feel like I need a shower. 



Spring is here. The cat fur tumbleweed is rolling around my living room floor, my dog has started enjoying his walks more and is stopping to eavesdrop on conversations again, and my neighbor in the apartment next door has started playing his piano once more.

I love the pic with you and the kitty. You look so pretty.

the spring bouquet is pretty too.

I watched the show for 10 minutes, and actually wanted to finish, but someone called and I thought thank goodness they did.

Okay, are you saying that your neighbor doesn't play the piano in the winter? If so, why not?

I wondered about that show - such a silly title, it kind of put me off. I'm unlikely to ever see it. I gave up fighting for the clicker long ago and took up more reading and, obviously, more computer time!

eek! yuk! eew! I need a shower now...hope all the print falls off his money.

an eavesdropping pooch is way too funny! I'm still chuckling....

life is so bizarre isn't it?

Is that first pic the product of iphonography? Very nice! The apps are so addicting. I swore I didn't need anymore photo apps, but I just got another one this morning...

Teri, if you brush the cat every day it helps with hairballs and it only takes a couple of minutes depending on how receptive they are and a treat, well 4 to 5 after has them demanding. well at least it has worked for one week!

I've been trying to justify buying a prime membership. :) And an iPad. I have a Fire, love it...but I still really want an iPad. It's a sickness.

I haven't watched the B yet, but it's on my DVR.

Thank goodness Spring is finally here.

DD24 and I have been watching GCB. It is SO funny to us, having lived in the Bible Belt. Bless their hearts, LOL. We also watch Scandal.

I love this post Teri! Love the bunny, but I especially love the kitty photo with you, and the term 'cat fur tumbleweeds'! We use that term all the time over here. Get a FURminator to brush your kitty with. It's awesome. Our cats hate it, but we try to get a few minutes in a day with it.

"...sounds like I'm speaking in tongues" LOL that cracked me up!

Cute photo of you and Roan (at least I think that's Roan) and I like the cat fur tumbleweeds... we have that going on too!!

Dewey says that is my Krissy Cat. And yes, I love going out especially when my girlfriend surprises me. Mom, "I can't hear you!" Roan says he loves being brushed.

We've taken our dog out on his walks more often again too. Actually, what has started back up is letting him have a dip in the lake. Tiresome to hose him down afterwards but I just get a kick out of him playing in the lake.
