Random Stuff

Recently, I was the featured blogger over at Simply Stacie. I wanted to say thanks and give her a big shout out for all she does. Check out her blog for tons of great book reviews, giveaways, PR information and more. 

I have officially started my Christmas shopping. YAY!

Let's talk you watch the HBO series Bored To Death? I have to say this is one of my very favorite shows on tv. It's totally laugh-out-loud funny. If you are easily offended by language, sexual content, and drug references, then this is not the show for you. But, if you're okay with that kind of stuff you should really check it out. Jason Schwartzman stars as struggling Brooklyn writer, Jonathan. With his writing career not going so well, Jonathan decides to moonlight as a private investigator and advertises his services on Craigslist (even though he has no training or qualifications to be a private investigator). The show follows the antics of Jonathan, his magazine editor (Ted Danson), and comic-book writer-best friend (Zach Galifianakis). Schwartzman, Danson, and Galifianakis seem like an oddball cast of characters but their dynamics really work and they are quite hilarious. The trio often end up working on Jonathan's cases together and almost always botch something up or find themselves in some precarious situation. The show is on HBO on Sunday nights (with several replays throughout the week as well). Watch it and let me know what you think...

It's very irksome when I'm commenting on a blog and I get that little message that says..."You are posting comments too quickly. Please slow down".  I don't know why it bothers me so much but it just does.

I'm going to be participating in a Holiday Gift Giveaway Hop in December and I'm trying to decide about my giveaway prize. What store would you most like to win a gift card from?

Is it sad that I'm really excited about buying a new ironing board today? Seriously, for the last several years, I've only had one of the small table-top ironing boards (because honestly I rarely iron). But, for some reason I have decided that I need to be more June-Cleaver-like and do it more. So, I bought a full-size, cute blue-polka-dot-covered ironing board at Target today.

Is it bad that I have repeatedly told the kids to stay out of the Halloween candy, yet I have been sneaking Reese's cups like crazy?

I sneak the Halloween candy too! But hey, we deserve our chocolate breaks :) I'm going to check out that TV show. Sounds like it's right up my alley. I would probably get excited about an ironing board too. Wonder what that says about me??? LOL. Also, I wish I was like you and organized about Christmas shopping. Love your randomness today Kari.
