Friday Fragments

Friday Fragments is brought to you by Mrs4444!

Mommy's Idea

In a pinch the other day and needing caffeine with no Dunkin in sight, I broke down and bought a drink from Starbucks. I figured that while I was crossing over to the other side I may as well go balls to the wall, so I ordered a froufrou drink - the toffee mocha. It was a huge disappointment. Maybe it would have been better with the whipped cream. Either way, I will never again stray from my loyalties.

I love mac and cheese. Really, really love it. Especially this Ina Garten recipe, which kept us fed and happy for three nights this week.

The MLB Postseason is in full swing. I'm already tired and stressed, but it was super cool to see Roy Halladay pitch a no hitter on Wednesday, even if it was against the Reds. I know my Cinci friends really wanted that win, but I hope they can get past it and appreciate how neat it was to have a postseason no-hitter happen during our lifetimes.

Yankees are up 2 games to 0, and I'm a happy camper. Even happier because it was Pettitte who got the win yesterday. <3 him!

I hate the TBS broadcasts because everyone is so anti-Yankees. I also hate their broadcast team. WTF was he wearing?

Did you ever have one of those spans where you feel like you got absolutely nothing accomplished? From Monday at 1:30 until Wednesday at 4:40 I got pretty much nothing done. Not for lack of trying, either.

A newly discovered benefit of Yo Gabba Gabba! - If I sing the "Try It, You'll Like It!" song, Charlie will usually take at least one bite of whatever we're eating. 9 times out of 10 he'll decide that he likes it, too, and finish his dinner. He's eaten a wider variety in the last week than he has in the last year.

Is it bad that I sometimes find myself listening to the CD when he's not even in the car?

I think I need to get this shirt for Charlie.

I could do some serious wallet damage at ThinkGeek.

Office QOTW:

I almost didn't do a QOTW because the episode kind of sucked, but then I decided that I would go ahead and do it anyway, because I like tradition. Also because of the BSC shoutout.

Erin: I really wanted to see Andy's play, because he's so, so talented, but I've been trying to get in the babysitting game forever. The 13-year-olds in this town have a complete monopoly. It's almost like a babysitters' club.

How's that for a flashback? If you loved the BSC as much as I did, then you'll love What Claudia Wore. Big thanks to Tube Top Tricia for the link.

Oh, and one more final inclusion. You may have heard that Deadspin has posted pictures of Brett Favrerereres, um, anatomy. No need to go and see if it's true. It is. And now I can't scrub my eyeballs hard enough.


  1. Some great fragmenting. Now if we only had a Starbucks near I would have been close to heaven.

  2. Thank goodness I don't drink coffee, so I have no desire to frequent any of those places.

    I love The Office. It's my favorite sitcom.

    Yanks are in good shape, up 2 games.

  3. Dunkin' ALL the way... Except when it comes to doughnuts! Krispy Kreme is da bomb :) hahaha

    Have a good one!

  4. Baseball - just can't get into it. Not enough potential for death or violence.

    Thanks for reminding me that it's nearly 10 and I haven't had any coke or cookies!

    Love your quote!
    Happy weekend!

  5. Mac and cheese is heaven. Ina Garten has three or four different recipes for it that are wonderful. I've tried two. I'd love to try the one with lobster in it!

    Starbucks is hit or miss for me. Some locations can make a good drink, others cannot. Dunkin is the best for coffee. Oh...and a pumpkin donut. :)

  6. your starbucks mistake was getting a froufrou drink (or is it foofoo) - I like their bold coffees just black.
    The sports announcers should just talk and not be seen. Those dumb interviews at the end of the game are so dumb.

  7. when i was in the train station the other day i saw a teeny tiny little girl who was really excited and running around. after a train came and went it started to get a little crowded, and i think the mom got nervous that she would get lost. at this point, 90% of the moms in nyc would scream YO! STOP RUNNIN! or WHATCHU DOIN THAT FOR? GET BACK HERE! to the kid. but this mom stayed calm and simply sang "There's a party in my tummy!" instantly, the little girl stopped dead in her tracks to answer back "So yummy! So yummy!" They walked together and sang that through the whole tunnel from 7th ave to 5th ave. I thought it was a really touching technique. :)

  8. Starbucks is evil.
    That broadcaster photo is hilarious - What IS he wearing - what a flashback - polyester or what?

    Great fragments!

  9. Oh down here, there is a Starbucks on every corner and DD's are few and far between... these southerners just don't KNOW coffee :)

    I love me some mac and cheese too... the kids get it once a week at church dinner with enough leftovers for lunch and Mamma- except this week is was Spaghetti Supper...the one week a month there's no M&C... I was crushed... I mean really disappointed... and then I had to go buy bread so I could feed my kids lunch... I really needed the M&C! :)

  10. Ewww, the toffee mocha is terrible, I had it a few weeks ago. Try a Peppermint Mocha or a Dark Chery Mocha, they are to die for!! I make mine *healthy* by getting them made with nonfat milk and no whipped cream, haha.

    That sports announcer is HORRIBLE!!!! He needs a stylist.

  11. I feel so special. I got a shout out! :)

  12. Dunkin' ALL the way... Except when it comes to doughnuts! Krispy Kreme is da bomb :) hahaha

    Have a good one!
