Alicia Keys — Empire State of Mind (Part II) Broken Down on Later… with Jools Holland, May, 2010.
What’s on your mind?
We are words spoken by starlight.
hey dave — how’s your starlight tonight?
No stars tonight. Wind blowing in clouds and some precipitation. The reservoir had a little more water in it – maybe a foot or two deep. It’s a start.
We are stardust
yay for some rain! do ya have more precip in your forecast? i got stars and its 38 outside. brought my winter indoors plants inside today.
No sun until Monday.
Dust in the Wind
*sigh* it gets that way up here too. we’ve had so little sun that token and i have gone outside to soak up the rays even tho it was only 49 out there… of course, by the time ya start to feel the warmth of the rays *poof* its hidden back behind clouds again

What does it say about your pets when the cat prefers to sleep on clean clothes and the dog prefers dirty?
Seems like it’s just the two of us, spinning records.
Cats prefer their own scent, dogs prefer yours.
hey tuez — i think it means your cat is fastidious and your dog is wishing he was outside rolling in something dead. in other words, they are fine :) how was your day?
ain’t nothing wrong with that
Proof dogs are our true friends. Cats…
My cat might be fastidious, but thanks to her, I can’t be. Cat hair and all.
I’m fine, et tu?
Tomorrow is my b’day (well, okay I’m on the east coast, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME), I’m taking bets as to whether or not my husband will remember.

What’s UP bitches??? >:-D
hey thatguy — what’s up with the bitches???
Well, thank you.
um, s’mores? Can I have that in a cake?
*sliding a s’mores cake (with candles) down the counter to ya*
That’s all for me. Goodnight, peeps.
Only one candle per decade please.
Hiya Pups! Great tv tonight, and much activity in the life of the CE family. We are in love with the tv program, “Totally Biased, “ on the Comedy Channel.
i used the magic birthday candles — they auto-configure exactly how the birthday person wants :) i was able to get them after reaching a certain level of brain bleach orders for this joint… election season always requires more brain bleach than usual
hey ce — how’s cleveland tonight?
Bummer not on Netflix yet.
Great. Starry skies. We ate out tonight at a swanky local restaurant at low prices during “restaurant week.” It was wonderful. OTOH everyone but me is getting sick — hello autumn. Colds, flu, strep, and who knows what. Working in a public/academic institution with the public is always a public health challenge.
quick — knock on wood or something….
Election show tonight hilarious. “Goodnight Romney” book read like “Goodnight Moon.” We laughed ourselves sick.
I have to give away my biggest pair – not practical to wear them any more, I cay pull them up over the biggest part of my gut, let go, and they fall to my ankles. >:-D
Also Suze, check your email…
Washing hands CONSTANTLY.
OH, YOU meant BITCHES…*slaps head* DOH!!!
so you came in calling us female dogs???? i’m not seeing the connect…. i just saw that email
taking your multi-vitamins too
Well, not exactly dogs…
It’s just an exclamation – you know, like HOOOOOOOOOWDY HO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Oddly, no. Geez, I’m not doing anything except washing hands and opening doors with elbows and knees. And drinking water all the time.
The one problem with Netflix is that it is not timely. Five years from now, I’ll be up to speed.
ok, just wanted to clarify since some folks use that term in anger as an insult…. i’ve got my tree up and i’ve had its lights on the past two nights. its not a fireplace but it gives the room a cheery glow. i’m decorating a tree for christmas for the first time in 10 years or so. gotta kill time between now and feb yanno
whatever you are doing, its working *knocking on wood so i don’t jinxl ya*
You’re not making many friends.
We DVR everything. Works for us.
I’m thinking of putting up a tree for the first time in 11 years. Think I should have my head examined instead but what the fuck.
Aloha, Suz and lln pups…! Just got back from OH’s GA…! I hope all is well with y’all…! ;-)
i gotta say, doing it for pleasure and not because i have to is a different experience. i’ve got blue and silver ornaments on it now but have to get others. tis the first tree i’ve done all by myself for just me.
aloha tut — how’s paradise tonight?
I have a DVR, but don’t know how to use it, except as a DVD player and we don’t have cable.
Seriously, I haven’t been sick for two years when I thought I’d cough up both lungs. MrCE and I gave up smoking 10 years ago, 30 years later than we should have. My word, I can’t believe I smoked all those years. Anyway, since giving up smoking, I’ve has sinus infections about every 2-3 years. Is there a connection?
i got one when i got my direct tv setup. first time using one but its really not that difficult. it was harder remembering the new channel numbers for the channels i watch
Mysteries assigned to MRCE.
I just love the smell of a live dead tree and really miss that. Wreaths are okay, for the occasional olfactory orgasm but a tree…
i started getting sinus infections after my thyroid was radiated and i had to go on synthetic thyroid replacement. once i got on natural thyroid replacement, my sinus infection issues pretty much went away. i do much better on the natural since i’m not a converter.
So are you saying you are more or less sick since stopping smoking?
i broke down and got a pre-lit artificial tree. i love the smell of a dead tree too but there is no way i could lug one into the house, set it into a stand, and then haul it out with this leg. the tree i got comes in 3 sections and was an easy assembly. ups dood delivered the box right inside the house too :)
I’ve had less trouble since using a nasal rinsing pot, a netti pot. I just haven’t used it yet this season. Tomorrow!
More, isn’t that strange?
It makes me wonder if we don’t build up an immune response to smoking that we lose upon quitting.
or the smoke kills germs?
Wow, I have to leave. I can’t believe how late it is for me here in Ohio. BTW, please visit the museum website. It is a beautiful collection. The Cleveland Museum of Art.
Soggy evening after a gorgeous day…! We’re getting psyched up to do Occupy Light Brigade at the 3 Xmas parades that are scheduled next month…! ;-)
g’nite ce — thanks for the link to your musuem
a hehehe instead of a hohoho?
Sweet dreams, Christine…!
Goodnight all! More on the morrow…
hadn’t thought of that and my first response was no, but considering the industrial chemicals in cigs…
I’s gots to hit the sack too.
We’re planning on wearing Santa hats with our Guy Fawkes masks, while we’re also dressed all in black…! ;-)
Sweet dreams, tuez…!
sorry to be fading so early tonight peeps. the cold has my knee quite upset and i’ve had to use pain pills again today. time for me to get horizontal.
thank you for letting me hang out here with ya tonight
We’re looking forward to it…! ;-)
I’ve got some chores that I put off earlier, that needs to be done…!
Sweet dreams, Suz and lln pups…! *g*
