Julie,

Your hair is beautiful, why would you need to highlight it. Chelsea's was beautiful at her wedding too....I guess I'll never understand why people want to mess with hair that is already beautiful.

Good morning Andrea! How are you doing without Mitch at home??

Thanks about the hair. The highlights just add a little brightness around the face, nothing too over the top, which is much needed since my hair has darkened significantly as I have gotten older.

Ok... I'll arrange that. LOL!

But seriously... The Price is Right is better than Lazytown...which is what I'm watching.

Jayhawkmom, I love your picture :)

:lol::lol: The Price Is Right! I haven't watched that in ages. It's hard to believe Bob Barker is still going at it.

Good Celiac PR idea Jessica!

My phone lines went down today so no internet. I was in panic mode, what am I gonna miss on the board :blink::blink:

Susan- I am available to dingosit the bored staring dogs for you :lol:

Julie - lines down - scary - - :o

DingoSit - - any time at all - - and guess what, my best friend donated GIANT Screen TV last night, they are here for a few days.....secret piano trade is the reason (shhhhh, her husband doesn't know)

you will love it here.....the dingos, they will love you... :rolleyes:

i'm in the minority i hate grease so much, i have always hated it, i saw it is england when i was 6 as a show and i didn't understand it and from then it just has not appealed to me.

Molly - OMG, saw "Cats" in London and was almost in tears from boredom....sitting through musicals is, I think one of the things they do in .....hell (that and excel spreadsheets and Mennonite committee meetings)....thought I might die.....loved the first Grease movie, but I"m with Chelsea, will not see second.....and then guess what...my oldest niece played Sandy in the Grease production in senior year of HS, also she was Evita, I had to drive home from Monterey to see her in every play since she was 6 or 7......but she did win performer of the year in her large school district - I was sobbing in Grease...... :rolleyes: so proud of her.....

You'll be ok ;) You should mostly be using your legs....and your arms to help me (belay)...hehe speaking of an ogre :huh:

yes, right, you have time Rachel for arms to heal.....remember it's your FOREARMS that will be blown out from climbing and belaying the "ogre" :lol:

I won't watch Grease 2 on principle, just like I won't watch any Bring it On sequels...it ruins the first one. Actually, any movie/show that tries to come back with a different cast is just bad news :rolleyes:

OH

I went back to the hair lady yesterday...she tried to put another color over it to even it out (my natural color, actually) and it looks worse. So I have to go get it stripped today, and then wait 24 hours to color it again :blink: DH's grandparents are coming into town tomorrow, too. Not good. :ph34r:

yup, ditto, but the second Alien movie was quite good - and scary - -

sorry about the hair - it does look good red! - but once, years ago, I did highlights on self....they were....PUMPKIN colored and bright orange, I had to call in sick to work and pay $125 for corrective coloring....am thinking of highlights again....scared...... :o

that is all for now....must rouse the teenager who is sleeping....she cleaned my closet yesterday, such a dramatic and rapid change, I walked in and it was like While You Were Out - - I nearly cried....she loves to clean and is here for two more days...... :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

see you - - -

someone tell me, what is Picard and Jean-Luc - - do not know.... :blink:

Kris,

Love the picture. I just love seeing everyone.

Who else do we need to pester about a picture.....Ryan is one. He posted over on the Tazorac thread this morning.

I haven't watched Price is Right forever either. Of course, we don't have TV now :ph34r: , just watch DVD's and videos that we have. Old time stuff that most probably aren't interested. I may have posted it on the OMG thread. Great idea though Jessica.

Tavi - - HI! the dingos are just lying around, not as depressed as their girls are here (I have told all three of my best friend's kids that I am their birth mother, but do not know who their fathers are, I just make up somethign different every time of who I THINK it could be - and NO I am not that way but YES I am inordinately silly - I think you all know that :o:lol: ) ...I just posted to you, have digressed from topic completely :ph34r: in that poor doctor's thread......

Hi Tavi!!

Susie, so good to see you! I think you got the better end of the deal with the tv/piano trade :lol: So glad you are having such a great time with your company.

Andrea, what have you guys been watching, would love to hear.

Off topic...well, but what isn't off topic here :lol: .....does anyone do any catalog/internet ordering?? If so what are your favorite companies/sites??

I love zappos.com, finish line, lands end, old navy, j crew, victoria's secret, and amazon .com, to name a few.

OMG, I saw CATS two summers ago..... and HATED it. I can't even begin to express to you how much I hated it.

I've loved other musicals, but NOT that one!!!

Thanks, I really hate having my pics taken. That one is well... a little older. It was taken in 2004 as I was getting ready for a Christmas party. I'd been REALLY sick so I did more primping than I normally would. I found out a few days later that I was pregnant. Hehehehehe! =)

I'm still trying to get rid of the baby weight, pretty sad since he'll be a year old next week. But, I hate being in front of the camera!!!

Well I think you look fabulous jayhawkmom!!!

Regarding musicals, I have been to a few here in the city and then community theatre in the suburbs, I actually LOVE them, but I am a dork :lol:

One of my cousins went to a performing arts high school here, kind of like a "Fame" school, and they put on shows all the time, dance performances, plays, musicals, concerts, and they were so awesome. So much talent, better quality than some of the adult performance companies.

Julie - - check out that silly Tazorac thread and you can see the poignant story of my piano.....

OMG, HALF.COM - - all my books/celiac disease's/DVD's - and I sell same there as well - it is an offshoot from ebay (also LOVE that) and super cheap!

OMG, I saw CATS two summers ago..... and HATED it. I can't even begin to express to you how much I hated it.

CATS is pure torture.....my parents saw it two more times when we were in London (and we were in London when Charles and Di got married - such a magic, unbelievable time! Di and I were the same age and I loved her very much... :( )

Cats is torture, abject torture.....BUT - - we also saw Amadeus, it was the year it won the....Obi? is that the British equivilent of the Tony, or did I make that up? And it was truly amazing and staggering in its magnificence...also saw Evita.....hated it....musicals are torture for me AS I AM SO ANNOYED AND WANT THEM TO JUST GET BACK TO THE TALKING FOR PETE'S SAKE.....but I hate plays - - love movies....cannot sit through a play.....agony.............. :o:blink::lol:

Dang I am posting a lot today....this is why I grounded myself from the computer....but there is a teenager sleeping on my couch and I'm letting her.....just for a little bit more am staying out of her way.....

This is right up my alley :D

I love QVC, Land's End, LL Bean, Coldwater Creek, Chadwicks :ph34r:

And MUSICALS! Love them!

My all-time favorite is "The Music Man". We went up to New York City to see it on Broadway for our 25th anniversary. It was fantastic. When Craig Bierko (the man who played H. Hill) did his last performance, we went back and saw it again about a year later. It was great to be there on his last day :)

I love all of the songs fron the older shows like "My Fair Lady" and "Camelot".

Oooh, forgot about Coldwater Creek, great stuff there. I have to buy petite pants and I've gotten a couple pairs from Chadwicks. What about HSN, how do they compare to QVC?

Ok Patti, since you are with me on the musical thing, let's take it one step further :lol:

...what about Ice Capades, Stars On Ice, the Ice Skating shows??

Now my dork meter has really gone up :ph34r:

Susan,

I'm glad to see you more. :D

Julie,

Ebay, Amazon primarily. I order my school books online, have ordered from JCPenney. I prefer online when possible since I am one of the rare ones that hates to shop. :P

Kris,

You look great. Our babies are three months apart!

Julie,

DVD's we have.....Little House (What is being dubbed Season 10, the three 2 hour specials, is coming out in October), Lassie, some Andy Griffith (debating getting the seasons but out of money), Mister Ed, Charlie Brown Christmas, My Friend Flicka and Thunderhead, National Velvet with Liz Taylor, Davey & Goliath, Charlie the Lonesome Cougar.

Most of the stuff we have is from the 60's/70's. We prefer stuff from that time period when there were still some wholesome family shows on tv. Haven't had tv for about 10 years. I'm an old David Hasselhoff fan so I used to watch his shows, not good for young family viewing. We were thinking of looking into Highway to Heaven since Michael Landon usually did good shows. Content would probably still scare Talitha though. I think I only watched the show once or twice. Maybe we should look into Bonanza. My daughter would be horrified though....he's Charles Ingalls. She still has a hard time with the fact the he is not the REAL Charles Ingalls but an actor who portrayed him. She's like that with all the characters in Little House. :P

:lol::lol:

I used to like to watch ice skating. I always enjoyed, was it Scott Hamilton :ph34r: . I forget his name, he did a backflip on ice. My favorite skaters were Gordeeva and Grinkhoff. I also forget how to spell there names. Back in '84 was their first olympic appearance.

I love old shows and movies!

I used to watch all the time when I was growing up Little House, Leave it To Beaver, Bewitched, Gidget, I Dream of Jeannie, My Favorite Martian, I Love Lucy, Gilligan's Island, The Brady Bunch, Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley....a bunch of others I am forgetting.

What about Flipper? I am thinking that might be age appropriate and family friendly, not sure though, as well as The Muppet Show?? Lassie?

Yep, Scott Hamilton, love him!

My favorites were Ekaterina Gordeeva and Sergei Grinkov too Andrea, so tragic that Sergei died. I followed their career and then Ekaterina when she went solo, bought her book My Sergei and read it a hundred times.

Oh, no ice skating for me please. In my book it is right up there with watching bowling, golf or baseball. I guess I am not really a fan of watching any sports except maybe NASCAR. My husband has me into that now.

Julie,

We thought about trying to get some Flipper shows but I don't remember a lot about them and my daughter is easily scared. Some Little House shows scare her. There is one episode (2 parter) that we won't watch, at least until they are much older, it has to do with rape. There was another one that we decided to watch that was iffy and it scared her....I can only imagine what that episode would do, and I've never seen it either.

I used to watch most of the shows you listed too.

:o:o OMG.....LOVE them!!!

OK...my dork meter went off the charts a long time ago so I'm not really gonna concern myself with that. :lol:

Susan...are you saying you wouldnt wanna hang out with me and Julie....watching Grease 2 and ice skating shows??? What are you THINKING??? It would be a blast.... :lol::lol:

Ok...well maybe I would think I'd died and gone to hell too if I wasnt an ex-skater. Thats the only reason I like it. :P

However, I didnt skate on the ice...I was a roller skater. :ph34r:

Yes, I did this competetively....wore the same skirt type outfits the ice skaters wear....I had a partner too. It was basically the same except when I fell I didnt freeze my butt off. :D

Ooooh...maybe one day I'll change my avatar to an old pic of me in my roller skating days. :lol:

That one would stay up for about 5 minutes.... :lol:

Gosh Julie--I am learning that we have a lot in common!

I also need to buy petite pants! I'm 5 foot 3, but my arms and legs are short--I'm more long-waisted. That's really all that I get from Chadwicks--they have so many choices in petite pants. For petite jeans, I always buy Lee Riders--their petite length fits me perfectly.

I love ice skating! I took lessons for years when I was young. When my older son was about 3 or 4, I wanted to take him to Disney on Ice--he wasn't all that interested--it was me who really wanted to go! Used to love the Ice Capades, too when I was little.

I still love all of those 60's and 70's TV shows. My favorites were Gidget (I wanted her hair), That Girl, (her hair, too) and Bewitched. Did you like to watch beauty pagents? I always looked forward to Miss America--the hairdos and the gowns--beautiful...

Andrea--Have your kids ever seen "The Waltons"? I still like the reruns of that show. It is absolutely charming. I also like Andy Griffith--once in a while it'll be on and I catch it. Good stuff!

Ummmm...H-E-L-L-O....

If you were actually reading the epic thread...and not just skimming, looking for juicy tid-bits of info to use against me....you would have seen that we've already discovered the secret behind multiple emoticons. Its old news! :P
