As a lapsed House fan

I thoroughly approve of this comic.

I kind of want to rent the latest two seasons of House at some point, to catch up.

Okay, I want to see House mess with Wilson and watch Meat Loaf not die for once. I can just fast-forward through all the other stuff, right?

Ah, comfort.

I think my cold has finally passed; today I just have the sniffles, and that's most likely due to allergies.

I'm lounging around in my new Ribbed Tees top, which is just as comfortable as promised. The neck is a little wider/lower than I usually like, but since I'll mostly be wearing it at home or under something else that's fine by me. The suggestion on the website to order a size down was absolutely correct: the medium fits perfectly, and I'm afraid the large would have been huge on me. Also, it sounds vain, but it's really very nice to be wearing a medium :-D.

Oh! And, I've been trying half the morning to post a widget in my sidebar, and it's not showing up quite right for me.

As you can see, it's a neat little ad for the Yanni Voices concert; I got the widget from the One2One network, but it's been giving me a headache. Can anyone see the widget in the sidebar, or just the one on this post? I love that it plays clips of the music (and I've been sitting here listening to it in another window as I try to make the darn thing work :-P)

Free Stuff!

The past few days, I've been lucky enough to win several giveaways. I figure, since these people are giving me free goodies, the least I can do is provide them with a little free positive PR :-D

1) An ISIS Peony Brief, from The hosting blog was Looking forward to wearing these to the gym!

2) Two Ribbed Tees from These look beautiful, and the hostess ( has a fun blog to visit, as well.

3) A beautiful pink scarf, made by the owner of this Etsy shop. The sponsor ( is a reliable source for environmentally ideas and giveaways.

Spring Fashions!

I just got approved to become an affiliate for BeLove! They sell cool eco-friendly clothes created from soft fabrics ... but that's not the best part. The best part is that, as an affiliate, I make a little extra cash anytime someone orders through this button (or the one in my sidebar):

And the better part is that if you decide to order from BeLove, you can enter the code BeLoveSpecialSavings to get $10 off men's and women's shirts!
