Back At It

I hope everyone had a nice weekend.  Mine was a wee bit frantic.  Aside from being out of pocket yesterday, the engine of Briton's car flat-out died at the end of last week, necessitating some shifting of money (an awful weekend to have to do that) and a trip to the Toyota dealer in town.  Not to mention all the ferrying of the one operating car between us.  Uuuugggghhhh.

Then, my wondering out loud about getting myself a dog led to viewing the site of every rescue organization nearby.  Which led to --- oh, you have this figured out already.  Here he is:
He was called "Gene Kelly" at the shelter.  Last night I finally landed on "Tap" as his name.  He's, let's say, "busy."  Run, run, run, run and then CRASH.

But you aren't here for any of that, are you? You're here to find out that
Jeremy Irons
Emma Watson
Jon Bon Jovi
Idris Elba
Emma Thompson
Jeff Bridges
and Mayim Bialik 
have moved on to the second round.

And, I suppose you're here to vote some more.

I'm going to start posting six match-ups each day for a while, to speed things along a bit.  Great good luck to all who still have someone in the contest!


  1. Darn it. After watching SUNDAY MORNING, yesterday, I realize I should have nominated TWIGGY. She is still a beauty!
    Tap is perfect. One of our barn horses, Tapper, is a clear favorite with such a winning personality. Im so excited for your new baby!!!!!!!

Not Really in My Color Wheel

10.  Red There isn't a lot of red stuff in my life.  Never has been.  I remember exactly three red tops I've had in my life, maybe a couple of skirts with red print.  My one red fashion statement has been my red cowboy boots, modeled after my Daddy's red patent leather ones with the gold toe tips.

Red just doesn't suit my coloring.  Mama could wear it.  Hannah can wear it.  It's just never been a big part of any of my color selection life.  I gravitate toward purples and blues and grays, some green.  I avoid orange at all costs.  At least red doesn't awaken that kind of loathing in me.

Guess Free Association is our best plan, then.

(HA!  "hot wings"!)

And you?  What does red do for you?


9 days until you can submit Knitters' Hunk and Knitters' Chick nominations!

I am late to a lot of parties.  I scarcely ever go to movies, so by the time I watch a film via streaming, or borrow a DVD from Netflix, everyone's fever has come and gone.  Since I read non-fiction almost exclusively, novels that everyone else has long since read and fawned over don't often appear on my radar.  Hence,
If memory serves, Kathy's daughter talked about this book in one of her reading posts over the last few months.  Briton read it long ago, and thoroughly enjoyed it, and it is his copy that I've borrowed and am just sailing through. What an engaging read.  Most of you have probably already read it;  did you like it this much?
