Jab me in the rear with a pointy thing (?)

I read this and thought that it was a pretty accurate description of how my week is starting off so I'm going to make it my saying for the week. This is quite the same idea as my usual saying about the ole hot poker in the eye....

Saying for the week:

Just jab me in the rear with a pointy thing.

Squishy eyeballs

It's been so much fun having TV cable especially after not having TV for years. There are so many home and craft shows on now. And they are on all the time. I am completely in love with this one called "While you were out".
I watched the new Martha show yesterevening for the first time.They made pumpkin raviolis (which are very good with a smoked tomato cream sauce) and this very good looking wreath although the web site photo just does not do it justice because on the show it was awesome. You just jam the twigs through the eye balls. Martha was pretty funny about doing that and described it as if they were the way real eye balls would be and then seemed to gross herself out and added that but of course she doesn't really know what it would be like never having done that.
They had small bags of those eye balls at Target. Should have gotten some along with the tiny rubber rats.

Just another rainy Tuesday

So there's this band that's going to be playing this week. I can't seem to be able to figure out what their name is from what is written about them...but they are (quote) "superstars of Bulgarian "wedding music," a kinetic, rhythmbending cultural force that ricocheted across Southeastern Europe in the 1970s and '80s." (unquote) You can view their album here. You will see that they are four manly type guys. (Click on the photo of the record cover to go where you can hear the song samples)

This is how their music is described:
"Built upon virtuosic technique, inventive improvisation, rapid tempos and daring key changes, “wedding music” is based in Balkan folk music and infused with a riveting mix of jazz and rock, Gypsy, Turkish and Indian music, and pure testosterone. " (me laughing-"Ha! Ha! Ha!")

Well, after reading all that, I was surprised when the first song sample started to play! Click on
Lenorije Chaje and listen to the whole snippet... (another me laughing-"Ha! Ha! Ha!")

Testosterone my butt.
