I have been so busy painting the dining room and other interruptions (like spending six hours driving down to Frederick, MD and back today) that I haven't had much of a chance to respond to comments on the blog. I have been using my breaks to read the comments, but at the end of the day I'm too tired to respond to them. Hopefully I'll get some time to do that this weekend.
Since I'm painting I also haven't had a chance to watch any DVDs this week. I have Steve Martin's Novocaine and Paul Newman's The Hustler in from Blockbuster right now. We did sign up for Netflix and already received Far From Heaven. We canceled Blockbuster but have until May5 to get their movies back to them.
I also wanted to mention that The Long Cut has ended up on John Corzine's blog. Corzine is one of my Senators and is running for governor of New Jersey. We Jerseyites (Jersians?) have been blessed with two very sane and very progressive Senators, so the race I have been watching closely has been the Pennsylvania senate seat now occupied by that national embarrassment, Rick Santorum. I guess I have been taking for granted that Corzine will win the governors race since the Republicans that are running are all chowderheads, most of them former candidates whose previous campaigns have pretty much self-destructed. But I really should be keeping an eye on those shifty conservatives, and I am a little worried about how North Jersey has seemed to lean more to the right since 9/11. I'll probably blog more about the race once the primaries are over.
I haven't been doing the Battle of the Beers because they decided to consolidated a weeks worth of battles into one day, Friday, so I'll have to find time to do that. And since I'm not at work with my MediaPlayer I'll have to come up with some creative way to do the Friday Random Ten.
So that's it. Sorry for the lack of links, but no time no time. Thanks for reading.
Back to painting.
