all the rage around here

* Playing checkers.  Team Testosterone will want you to play if you show up.  Then they'll want to play the winner of that game.
* Drinking ginger ale.  I bought it because Mr. D was sick with the flu.  Team Testosterone gave it a taste because it qualified as a "soda" (see:  plastic 2-liter bottle, carbonated, sugar) and pronounced it really good...can you buy some more, Mom?
* Watching Sherlock.  One hopes this leads to actually reading some Sherlock.
* Eating Carr's Jam & Creme Cookies--because that's what Dr. Who ate in "The Beast Below" after convincing the Daleks the cookie was a self-destruct button for the TARDIS.
* Wrestling.


Spill it, reader.  What's all the rage in your neck of the woods?

  1. Conversation hearts and anything else related to Valentines Day. My girls love to craft and make things for people so they are busy prepping for VD. Also the song "Happy" from the Despicable Me 2 movie:)

  3. What's all the rage here is procrastination. I can't wait to see that Dr Who Episode!

  4. I was never a big soda drinker....until diet coke took me by surprise and I had a decades long habit. That...I eventually kicked! yay! But. In my quest for something besides water, I happened upon a soda line by "Q". There is Q Kola, Q Ginger Ale (with cayenne!) and the other line is by Fevertree--these "sodas" are organic, and do not use any of the bad ingredients you find in regular sodas. The ginger ale by Fever tree is the BEST I've ever tasted. The calorie count is low, I think because of the not overly sweetened type of drink tha it is. The Q Kola has some herb content (nutmeg, cardamom, etc) that makes it quite striking. They all come in glass bottles, and when very cold, drunk straight from the bottle, are heaven! I highly recommend these 2 brands, they are the best I've ever tried, I find them at Whole Paycheck. So worth the hunt to find them!

  5. Facebook. All my kids deleted their accounts over a year ago because facebook isn't cool anymore and this week they all signed up again so they can communicate while my older daughter is away.

  6. The thing that keeps me occupied is keeping the spider plant alive that the cat insists on eating. I looked it up and it is not poisonous, thank goodness, but I wish she would stop chewing on it. Ginger ale sounds good, so do those cookies.

  8. I can't wait to see the recent BBC Sherlock...having seen so many before and loved them, and the books! Nothing the British and mysteries, right?

  9. Watching Sherlock. ..... the latest ones are more modern and I wonder if any one will take to reading the books.

  10. bulgarian non-fat yogurt, 1980's Jeopardy reunion, school cancellation due to probably ice storm that didn't come to fruition, quiet.

  11. Olympic TV is all the rage here. Easy to cook meals are, too. Jeopardy is always routine in our den, and cocooning and staying warm are part of our survival package.

  12. I'm late to this party, but lately we are all about the OLYMPICS and watching my daughter teach her dog new tricks. He is such a little character so we get a lot of laughs every night after dinner!
