Friday fragments

Welcome to Friday fragments, my weekly recap of topics too big to forget, yet too small to be their own post.

When I saw the promo for "Project Runway All-Stars" my 1st thought was "these are the people who DIDN'T win... why would we want to see them competing against each other again?"  But when a friend who knows how much I like the regular Project Runway learned that I wasn't watching All-Stars he strongly suggested I reconsider.  So as Spouse flipped around the channels and we came upon All-Stars I asked him to stop so we could watch a few minutes of it.  A few minutes was all it took for me to get hooked!  In some ways it even better than regular Project Runway, because the All-Stars contestants are from the top 4 or 5 of the previous seasons so they're all good designers.  So the DVR is now set to record Project Runway All-Stars.

A friend sent me this and I didn't laugh at 1st...

I ONLY saw 2 people dancing.  I looked and looked and looked at it.  I looked at something else and came back to it and finally saw the other image.  THEN I laughed! 
Our good friends Kerry & Hugh (and others) will be coming this weekend for the annual Polar Bear Plunge. As usual, Spouse & I will NOT be plunging into the frigid water with them.  Instead Spouse will hold their Yorkie and I video their mad dash into the sea.

I took the Mercedes in for new tires yesterday since the tread was really thin and I knew the car wouldn't pass inspection later this month with those old tires.  As if the 2 different size tires weren't expensive enough, I learned that the rear brakes and rotors needed to be replaced too.  It was over $850. when all was said and done.  Ouch!!

I saw this on facebook and really liked this.
This really diffuses the theory that gay marriage would somehow weaken or damage opposite sex marriage.

Here's hoping everyone has a great weekend!
