Friday Fragments - Happy Valentine's Day

Mrs. 4444 is under the weather and yet she still puts out our weekly blog hop. Get better soon!

Half-Past Kissin' Time

Happy Valentine's Day! A lovely made up holiday. For which I'm doing nothing. Tomorrow I decided we are going to make lobster for the first time. Now to figure out a side dish to go with it.

On Sunday I'm taking Whitney, my mom and my mother-in-law to Beauty and the Beast, one of the Broadway touring companies. It was Christmas presents for everyone so we are looking forward to it.

I feel sorry for all you people suffering from feet of snow but it was 55 yesterday and will be in the 60's all weekend long. Yes Oklahoma has fickle weather but mostly on the positive end right now. The warmer weather does not mean my office is any warmer though. I still need my space heater on.

I love being able to watch Olympics in the morning at work on my ipad while I work. Yes I can multi-task. I do it at home so doing it at work isn't any big deal.

Did you know in biathalon when they shoot laying down the target is smaller than when they are standing? Its because it is harder to keep your rifle steady when you are standing. Of course we are talking about targets that are only 4 1/2 inches for standing and 4.5 cm for laying down. That is pretty darn small.

Stupid criminal this week was the woman who stabbed her fiance when he wouldn't take her to the liquor store. He told her he was drunk and couldn't drive so she stabbed him. I don't think they are going to get married anymore.

There is a state in Mexico (Sonora) that has banned a list of 61 baby names. These banned names include: Twitter, Scrotum, Robocop, Spinach, Panties, Harry Potter, James Bond and Mistress. Now why anyone would choose these names is beyond me to begin with. 


  1. Enjoy Beauty and the Beast this weekend.

  2. Have fun at Beauty and the Beast!

    I agree, why would anyone use those names anyway!

  3. Wow how bad can it be to need government involvement in banning baby names. All countries need to deal with numerous issues and crisis. Doesn't Mexico have a much bigger issue with drug cartels and mobs? The drugs might explain the baby names though.

  4. I agree with Bill, why waste the time and money on banning stupid names with much bigger problems. But those names sure are stupid! Have fun at Beauty and the Beast. I love going to performances.

  5. CH saw Beauty & the Beast on Broadway & said it was AMAZING. I'm jealous.
    A judge about an hour from here got into some serious trouble because she refused to allow parents to name their baby "Messiah".

  6. If that stupid criminal acts that badly before she gets her liquor, I can't imagine what would have happened if he had made it beck and gotten her drunk -- haha!
    Enjoy Beauty and the Beast! Have a great week!

  7. Beauty & the Beast... you're speaking to my heart...

    I've seen it on Broadway 4 times... its still & always will be my favorite.
