Friday Fragments

Mrs. 4444, from Half-Past Kissing Time, hosts Friday Fragments each week. It's a great excuse to get all those little snippets that gather in the brain and don't seem enough for one post but together they can make one fun blog post! 


The newest episode of Project Runway was last night and I had to laugh right out loud when I heard the name of the dog that was in the fabric shop, "Mood."  Did you hear it?  It was so quick that I almost missed it.  The dog's name is "Swatch!"  What a hoot. 


My support group meeting this week was fabulous -  had such a good time.  The group dynamics are different each week but most everyone this week was in a funny mood.  We had all out laughter three or four times.  With the mix this week being weighted heavier to the pre transplant group the tone of the group can have a tone of sadness.   Usually those folks are quite ill, very nervous about their futures and the caregivers are exhausted.  It was wonderful to have all of those people belly laughing!  You could feel the mood lighten with each smile.


I went to my high school reunion a month ago.  I can't begin to explain how much fun it was.  I talked with people I really didn't know very well in high school and people who were totally out of league at that time.  Thankfully there didn't seem to be "leagues" anymore.  Everyone mingled, everyone talked, everyone laughed.  I now have a fun friendship with someone that I really didn't know at all in HS.  I knew of her, but we just didn't hang out at all.  Her name is Lori and we first became friends on Facebook and then we finally got to chat in person at the reunion.  I now can't imagine not knowing her!  I got her started in  blogging, too!  She's doing a really great job - Go take a look at Lori's blog if you get a chance.   


Speaking of High School - I just talked to my senior prom date last night.  He's been one of my dearest friends since the day I met him.  We dated for a few months in high school, but broke up a few months before prom.  We decided to go together anyway.  He's gay now.  (Actually, he was gay then but neither of us really knew it)  He lives in California now and I miss him, but thankfully we have been able to get together every couple of years.   He sent me that funny birthday card - here - where we are dancing together.


I'm secretly excited to know that the new Twilight saga movie is coming out.  I wasn't thrilled with the first one, but I rented it twice and now sort of like it.  I really love the books and have found myself reading parts and pieces of the books on my Kindle when I'm waiting for appointments, even though I'm in the middle of a different book.  It's almost like I want to have a shot of the feeling it gives me, but I can't even begin to describe the feeling, I just kow I like it. :)  I won't be going to the movie the opening night, or even the opening week knowing me, but I fully expect that I will see it in the theater.


I need to do laundry, so I'd better go.  I haven't done laundry since I got home almost two weeks ago and I'm totally out of socks and because I've been alone I seem to have clothing strewn about my entire condo.  I think I'll have to go on a hunting mission first so I don't miss anything.

I hope you get a chance to go visit the other fragment participants!  Thanks Mrs. 4444 for hosting this for the 70th time!

Have a fabulous Friday the 13th!

Happy about your support group meeting, laughter is so wonderful.
I went and visited Lori and said hello. What a cute name for the dog. Those JibJab things are so funny. I just did a Christmas Elf one and sent it to my kids! Sounds like laundry REALLY needs to be done. I too have housework to do but I am sitting her instead!
Have a wonderful weekend.

Oh my gosh Kristin, my entire couch is covered with laundry and I have three kids coming to my house tonight to spend the night. I am taking a break from house cleaning and yes, I am spending my break at your blog.

I LOVE Project Runway!! We didn't realize that last night was part 1 - my girls and I thought it would be the last one. ACK! We want to know who wins!

I'm excited about the Twilight sequel too - YAY!

I'm heading to Lori's blog now. Thanks for introducing us to her!

Have a wonderful weekend my friend.

My ten year reunion was a few years ago now, but I though it was a lot of fun too!!

I'm not sure if I'm excited about the Twilight movie, but I am curious. I LOVE the books, but the movie was a letdown. I'm really hoping the next one is better. :)

I hope you get your stinky socks clean and that none get lost in the process. You better get on it, I think I can smell them all the way over here.

So cool to hear that your support group meeting contained a lot of laughter. :)

Laundry seems to be a never-ending thing. Hope you're able to round up all your socks...they can be tricky at hiding! ;)

Happy FF! :)

love these...another friday has gone by without me participating but i always enjoy yours...i like how you connect so far back in the past and get me imagining about high school and regrets and what i would do differently, etc. i agree facebook and reunions (my 20th coming up 2010) help change these things and allow people to get to know one another on different to make a new dear friend and i'm looking forward to checking out her blog...

It's funny how we get along with people now that we never hung with back in the day.

Reconnecting with old friends is fun. My high school boyfriend requested my friendship last week. Not sure I'm going to accept that one, as what would be the point? How funny, too, that my first boyfriend turned out to be gay, too! Now there's a guy I should look up on FB!

You're right-Lori's a treat :)

Hope you've caught up on the laundry by now!haha
