Beverly has been getting "O" Magazine for a couple of years now. The thing is about the size of an old Sears catalog. After going to the mailbox and retrieving this brick for years, I have decided something. One of the best jobs on earth has to be that of cover editor for "O" magazine.
Here's how their monthly meetings must go: "Anyone have any ideas for this month's cover?" Hmm. Everyone sits in silence for a few minutes, drinking their coffee and eating donuts. Then someone says, "I know! Let's put a picture of Oprah!" "Yeah! Great idea, Sally. OK, everyone back to work. We'll meet again next month. And keep those creative juices flowing!"
I am a lifelong Cowboy fan -- except for a boycott of last season. But does being a fan mean you have to be blind to reality? I am really hoping we win Sunday. But I don't have a good feeling about it. I am afraid that we might have peaked too early, while it looks as if the Giants are playing better now. I'm not saying we will for sure lose, but I think I would feel better about it if we had played better over the last month.
I'm sure my loyal sons will roast me on this one.
I saw "I am Legend" last night. It was a good movie, but I think I was expecting a somewhat different story line. I went to the theater in Decatur, and there were 5 people -- two couples and me. But as is my luck in going to a public theater, a woman of one of the couples answered her cellphone and talked as if the person on the other end was having trouble hearing her. The man in the other couple talked to his wife throughout the whole movie. He must have thought he was a psychic, as he spent the whole time trying to predict what was going to happen next. The icing on the cake for him was when he must have finished off his drink, he burped so loud it felt like an earthquake.
I think I'll stick with DVDs. The popcorn is better, Beverly doesn't talk (I know you find that hard to believe) and she very rarely burps. (Just kidding, cutie)
