Three For Thursday

I’m feeling random but not totally random. That means it’s time for some lists of 3.

Three things about television:

  1. I’m sad that Brothers and Sisters hasn’t been renewed for the fall. I really enjoyed that show.
  2. I’m happy that Grey’s Anatomy will be back. I didn’t have any doubts about this but it’s still nice to know for sure.
  3. I’m totally bummed that Oprah is done. I’ve watched her since I was in college and I can’t imagine my afternoons without her. She has shaped the way I think in so many ways and I will miss connecting with her wisdom, generosity, and intellect.

Three things about books:

  1. I just finished listening to Bonfire of the Vanities. I never read it back in the 80s but I’d always meant to get to it. I’m glad I finally did. It was odd to think back to a world without cell phones and the internet.
  2. I am currently listening to Water for Elephants and enjoying it immensely.
  3. I am currently reading Crunch Time by Diane Mott Davidson. I always enjoy her mysteries and love that they are interspersed with recipes.

Three things about my hobbies:

  1. I just scored a used Wollee Winder and 3 bobbins for my Schacht Matchless. It was an excellent deal and I’m so happy about this since it means I can now sell my Lendrum.
  2. When I do sell the Lendrum I will put the money towards a new lens for my camera.
  3. I’m happily knitting red socks for a friend and a cabled sweater for Hannah.

If I’m counting correctly I’ve got 3 lists of 3 and that means I’m done. Happy Thursday, friends, it’s almost the weekend.

  1. I’m sad to see Oprah go as well. Since I retired I sit down with a cup of tea, my knitting and watch Oprah. What will I do now? Loved Water for Elephants and can’t wait to see the movie!

  2. My absolutely favorite show this year was The Good Wife!!
    I will also miss Oprah. =(
    Loved Water for Elephants. Hope the rain clears up for
    you all in NE!!! Happy weekend!

  3. Water for Elephants – wonderful story! Envious you’re knitting socks…I’ve got thumb issues. 🙁

  4. Your cheerful attitude lightens the gloomy weather – thanks! Ellen is replacing Oprah in that time slot, and she’s great.

  5. I loved Water for Elephants and want to see the movie now. I too am sad about Oprah and will miss her lots. And am sad that there won’t be a series finale for Brothers and Sisters. Last weekend I watched the last 5 shows — I had recorded them since I wasn’t home. Loved Sara’s wedding!

  6. I have no idea if my favorite shows are being renewed or cancelled, I really ought to check up on that! Thanks for the reminder. I’m in the process of reading Water for Elephants, and it’s awesome so far. Can’t wait to see the movie once I’m finished. Hmmmm, spinning wheel for sale? I might need a lesson sometime soon …

  7. With all the raves about Water for Elephants I will have to read it soon.

    Yay for the Woolee Winder! I have one for my Polonaise and I love it. My goal is to get one for my Lendrum. Ah – one day.

    I heard a rumor that we might actually see the sun for a few minutes today. If it actually shows up I’ll send it up north to you!

  8. I loved Water for Elephants! (Movie? Really, what would I do without blogs and comments?)

    New Lens? What kind? But that is best answered by also knowing what you currently have. (I’m considering a macro lens. Sometime.)

  9. I read Water for Elephants when it first came out and loved it. Don’t want to see the movie, though! (I’m That Way about books I love.) I sort of feel weird to admit this. . . but I’ve never seen Oprah. . . (the truth revealed!)

  10. Wow! I had trouble believing that someone had NEVER seen Oprah! Even my husband occasionally watched with me.

    My real reason for commenting is reading. Like you, I had always meant to read BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES and have never gotten to it. Loved WATER FOR ELEPHANTS. I am curious–do you listen to books on an IPod, get them on CD from the library?

  11. here’s to random! …and here’s to oprah – I can’t imagine afternoon TV without her. do you have special plans to watch the last episode?

  12. #103 on the waiting list for Water for Elephants. I heard it is awesome.

    Lendrum Original? Do tell, interested 🙂

  13. I agree that it’s weird to think of a world with no cell phones or Internet. How did we do it? 🙂

  14. I have had a copy of Water for Elephants sitting on my shelf for years! I don’t know why it hasn’t moved up the pile. Oh, because I keep adding to the pile! Happy weekend!
