Jail break and what I'm reading this week

It's Friday, y'all!  Word has it there's gonna be a heat wave of 40 today!


Last night we watched The Witness from the Balcony of Room 306(affiliate link) a documentary we bought after seeing it at the Civil Rights Museum in Memphis.  (I bawled like an idiot through the entire thing and people were looking at me like a dork.)  We make it a point to watch it on MLK's birthday every year.  It should be mandatory viewing for students, no...everyone.  If you have Amazon Prime, you can stream it for free.

I am so ready to do a jail break.  I've been cooped up in this house for weeks.  Then the one day I went out, I think I got a new disease so I'm cautious.  Even deep cleaning, I'm sure the air quality in the house is much less than walking around in the germ ridden world right now.  Maybe I'll go out and bring a purse full of cold and germ fighting arsenal including my travel air purifier (affiliate link)  if people are hacking around me.  I need to get out and walk or I'm going to bounce off the walls!

But enough of my impending meltdown, let's get to...

  1. You do need a jailbreak. Here's to hoping you feel better right away!

  2. That Maroon 5 video really made me smile! Awesome

    Bookmarked the MLK vid

    I just LOVE Sir Patrick!! He could totally be a snob if he wanted to, but instead he has an awesome sense of humor! (also those extras in that skit were pretty good lol)

    3, indeed, is the magic #! Not a bad earworm to have on a Friday. :-)

    I didn't make it through all 36 love questions but yowza those were good!

    1. It would be like Sugar Ray crashing my wedding to which I would also say, yes please! I hope all of them were M5 fans because I'm trying to picture if like Usher or someone I'm not a big fan of did that and I'd be like "get the hell outta here you attention whore!" LOL

  3. Hope you can get out and enjoy the nicer weather at least for a little while! Not much going on this weekend other than house stuff. I was in a good mood most of the day until I came home to a cranky husband and now I'm just irritated. So I've washed the dishes and will finish the laundry. When I'm mad I have to move around so at least the house benefits from a bit of cleaning! LOL Tomorrow is one of the pup's birthdays so he'll get an extra special treat-- an ice cream pup cup. =o) He's going to be 7 so we gots to play it up big. Snort!!
