Four more things that have absolutely nothing to do with each other

A. Took the dog to the vet yesterday. Bad news: He has an ear infection. Worse news: Said ear infection cost $153. Better news: I took advantage of the dog scale in the waiting area and, according to the digital readout, I no longer weigh as much as a full grown Great Dane. Now I'm closer to a Rottweiler with a healthy appetite.

2. I used to work with a woman who couldn't stand to wear anything around her wrists, such as a watch or tight sleeves. She told me she believed she was a slave in a previous life and spent much of her time shackled. If her theory holds true, I've got $50 that says I was a hippie in my previous life. I can't stand to wear a bra past 9 p.m. and would rather go barefoot than wear shoes.

III. I was in my son's room the other night, watching him play his guitar and just talking with him. His cell phone rang and he answered it. "No, I can't talk now," he said. "Just hanging out with my mom." He hung up. It was a girl. Wow. I know a compliment when I hear one. Thanks, Jacob.

d. If you are a woman and haven't seen Then She Found Me with Bette Midler, Helen Hunt, and Colin Firth, rent it soon and keep the tissues handy. I highly recommend it. If you're a guy (or a woman who doesn't mind a violent, laugh-out-loud, smart movie), go see Burn After Reading or add it to your list to rent one day. It's great too.

Read the book "Then She Found Me" this summer, loved it, haven't seen the movie yet. Thanks for the recommendation!

I did just the opposite. As soon as finished watching the movie, I ordered the book from Amazon. Glad to hear it is good.

Oh, I loved Then She Found Me (the movie ... Todd and I went to see it at the Angelika a few months ago. I think I might have blogged on it!). Loan me the book when you're finished!?

And I'm right there with you on the bras, but might even have you beat by a few hours. Don't like socks and shoes, but I'm a flip flopper around the house.

You couldn't possibly be a "hippie in (your) previous life" and have a teenaged son. The hippies are still around pretending to be nice middle-class Americans. LOL

I loved "And Then She Found Me." Of course, I've been in love with Colin Firth since he played Mr. Darcy. Picturing him diving into that pond now...sigh

I wear a top with a shelf bra to sleep in. I guess I was a prude in a previous life--a Victorian! Ummm. In this life, too. As Joan is to bathroom humor, so I am to nudity.

There I go again. TMI.
