Lenore's Here!

My niece, Lenore, is home for the holidays. She brought me a stash of German candy - all chocolate I think. Her husband, Daniel, helped pick it out. I like to try different variations, and I couldn't remember what she brought me the last time. I think the only one I've had before is the Kinder. Here are some of the goodies:She also brought me some books. We both love to read. The one on the left is an autographed copy. Aren't I special? THANKS Lenore!This is where Kaitlin found Abby when she came upstairs this morning.She almost doesn't fit in the basket anymore. I'm hoping that day comes soon so I can start using the basket for napkins again! She's off to the vet tomorrow to get de-clawed. Perhaps she'll be mellow for a day or two afterwards!

And here is Muffin's take on my breakfast and reading of the paper this morning. I guess she was helping me scope out the sales flyers.We celebrated birthdays today. My youngest sibling, Mike, turned 44 on Dec. 15, and my oldest sibling, Terry, turns 58 on Tuesday. (sorry to announce your ages, guys!). We celebrated with lunch at DeFazio's. This is the second time we've been there for birthday celebrations, and I've not been impressed either time with the food. Today my food was lukewarm, and pricey for what you get. Think we'll go somewhere else next time.

December is a big month for birthdays, etc. in my family. Besides my brothers, my mom's birthday is on Christmas Eve (along with your mom's, Chris!). My youngest cousin's birthday is this month, Terry and Sandy's anniversary is Dec. 13 (Happy Belated Anniversary!) and Corby and I will celebrate our 21st anniversary on Dec. 26th. All that along with Christmas gets to be quite expensive! And I must say Happy Birthday to my good friend, Anne - her birthday is today!

Listening to shuffled music on my computer - everything from Pink to the Mama's and Papa's to Ann Wilson to Joni Mitchell.

Today's quote, fitting for the cold: "Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home." -- Edith Sitwell

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS

5 STARS

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TOP 10:
1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
6. Survivor - UGH - I HATE ALMOST ALL REALITY SHOWS!
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…
