Friday Fragments

Mommy's Idea

It is time for another session of Friday Fragments. FF is where we take all of the bits and pieces of information floating around and use them all. It is like when you clean out all of the leftovers in the refrigerator and assemble them all into a casserole. Make sure you check out Mrs 4444 who is the head chef in this party and all of the other cooks.

I have been a fan of Survivor since the first season. I was excited to see that Boston Rob - one of my favorite all time players - was returning for another season. While he is a snake, I love how he plays the game. This season, I have been particularly impressed with his game play - both physical and mental. I will confess that I searched for spoilers and was very upset to see that Rob was booted fairly early. Each week, I watched in dismay as the player "voted off of the island" followed what the spoiler said. On Wednesday evening, I sat down with some hesitation to watch this week's episode as Rob was on the list to be eliminated. However, THE SPOILER LIST WAS WRONG!!! Boston Rob won individual immunity and remains to play another day. YEAH! Furthermore, the two players voted out (in a rare double elimination) were much further along the list so it throws the entire boot list in question. Perhaps Rob will go further - and perhaps Russell will get elimiated soon!

My son was stage manager for his high school's competition one act play. For the first time since 1986, they qualified for the state competition. The week before states, my son was out sick on day. He soldiered on and went back to school even though he was very tired. He didn't want to miss rehearsal or the play. They were out late Friday night and left our town at 9:00 am Saturday morning. They spent the day at the competition and didn't return until 1:00 am Sunday morning. The school has a tradition of going out to iHOP after competition so they headed over. Unfortunately, because he was so wiped out, he ended up getting sick. I received a phone call from his friend to let me know. Come to find out, my son asked him to call. I think he wanted to make sure that I would be up when he got home. I was and stayed up with him for another hour until he was feeling a little better. Moral of the story: Even at 15, when you are sick, you still want your Mom.

Another woman has come out saying she had an affair with Jesse James. John Edwards' mistress has granted an interview about their relationship. As disgusted with the men involved (including Tiger), I am equally disgusted with the women. They knew these men were married. It takes two to tango as they say. I was particularly dismayed that John Edwards' mistress took the shots at Elizabeth. Beyond the fact that Elizabeth has terminal cancer, there is a child involved. Their children are half siblings. What message is she sending to her daughter who will find the article when she is older? What a lack of class.

The weather here in Maine has been very strange. It was in the 70s last Saturday and is supposed to be in the 30s tomorrow. It is hard to know how to dress each day!

Here's to Friday Fragments and Mrs. 4444!


  1. The women. That's the part I just don't get. Knowing these men were married they pursued and slept with them anyway. What does that say about THEM? I have a word for it but my mother told me to be nice. :)

    We had rain, sun and snow last weekend. And we're in GA! The weather is crazy!

  2. I am so tired of the women and the media who support them. Then again, I guess I read it all. *sigh*

    Hope your boy is feeling better. It's sweet that he wanted you :)

  3. Here I was, all upset that you told me Boston Rob got booted off early - and then you didn't!! I went from very low to very high in a matter of seconds lol I do the lalala not listening thing :)

    I would have to agree with you on the women who enter into these relationships knowing the guy was/is married. Ugh.

  4. Wasn't Russell's game play BRILLIANT this week??? I was rolling on the floor over it all!!

    I'm 35 and I still want my mommy when I get sick.

  5. i agree that it takes two to *tango* so both are equally guilty.
    poor children.
    poor wife.
    pitiful are the people who have no character nor shame.

  6. Check out the weather for this coming weekend!
