Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry

I have Surrey with the Fringe On Top in my head and I can't stop it.

I sang the whole first verse twice and then I immediately went from "The wheels are yeller the upholstery brown..." to quoting When Harry Met Sally in my head.

Sally Albright: Well, if you must know, it was because he was very jealous, and I had these days of the week underpants.
Harry Burns: Ehhhh. I'm sorry. I need the judges ruling on this. "Days of the weeks underpants"?
Sally Albright: Yes. They had the days of the week on them, and I thought they were sort of funny. And then one day Sheldon says to me, "You never wear Sunday." It was all suspicious. Where was Sunday? Where had I left Sunday? And I told him, and he didn't believe me.
Harry Burns: What?
Sally Albright: They don't make Sunday.
Harry Burns: Why not?
Sally Albright: Because of God.

Harry Burns: Please, Jess, Marie. Do me a favor, for your own good, put your name in your books right now before they get mixed up and you won't know whose is whose. 'Cause someday, believe it or not, you'll go 15 rounds over who's gonna get this coffee table. This stupid, wagon wheel, Roy Rogers, garage sale COFFEE TABLE.
Jess: I thought you liked it?
Harry Burns: I was being nice.

Sally Albright: Well, basically it's the same dream I've been having since I was twelve.
Harry Burns: Which is?
Sally Albright: Okay, there's this guy...
Harry Burns: What does he look like?
Sally Albright: I don't know, he's just sort of faceless.
Harry Burns: Faceless guy, okay.
Sally Albright: He RIPS off my clothes.
Harry Burns: And?
Sally Albright: That's it.
Harry Burns: That's it? Some faceless guy rips off all your clothes, and THAT'S the sex fantasy you've been having since you were twelve?
Sally Albright: Well sometimes I vary it a little.
Harry Burns: Which part?
Sally Albright: What I'm wearing.

I walked home from work and then to B&N to return some books I should have waited till next payday to buy. I ate some hummus, cheddar and pretzels and a handful of nuts for a snack.

I roasted some tomatoes tonight and made sauce. I scooped the seeds out of some tomatoes and put them in the oven at 400 for about 40 min.

I put basil, parsley, roasted garlic, crushed red pepper and a little olive oil in with the tomatoes in the food processer and mixed.

I made some TJ's gnocchi (pretty good!) and tossed it together with a dollup of ricotta on top.

I feel like I could fall asleep but I don't think it'll be that easy.

So now for a round of: Does it make me a strange and or bad person if...?

I am secretly happy to hear that Kevin Youkilis is on the DL

I watch Jersey Shore. And The Real Housewives of NJ. And I may have just watched a Jerseylicious marathon on Style.

I have to consciously decide to clear the dishes out of my sink

Sometimes I just keep running water on them for a day or two before I put them in the dishwasher

I sing songs from Oklahoma! while loading the dishwasher (finally)!

Just curious. ;)


  1. Every single time I hear that line--chicks and ducks and geese better scurry-- I think of When Harry Met Sally.

    The Jersey Shore thing IS a little weird. ;)

  2. I love this post

  3. I know what I am making with my maters tonite.

  4. Kay - glad to hear I'm not the only one. And hush you re: JS.

    Melissa - happy - as always - to entertain. :)

    Dave - :) I forgot to mention that I added a bit of onion too. Do you have a food processor? If not you can use a blender. Also - the roasted garlic came from the pan where I roasted the tomatoes.

  5. When I hear about or see horses, in my head Sally sings "horses, horses, horses..."
