More braindumping

I did a little of that yesterday, but there's always room for more random stuff.

We've been getting a lot of rain lately. I'd happily send some of it to California to help with their drought and wildfires. My friend Scott's Facebook status today just cracked me up, so I turned it into an ecard.

I usually watch Good Morning America for the first half hour to find out if there's any breaking news I've missed, but today I watched more than usual. This week the hosts met their "mini-mes." So cute! Ginger Zee's in particular was quite the spitfire! Here's a picture of my birthday twin Robin Roberts with hers (and a Stephanopoulos photobomb):


May is Lupus Awareness Month and if you've read my blog for any length of time, you know my love for Marla and her blog Luck Fupus (get it?). Marla and I "met" through blogging, and then met for real last fall. Tomorrow is Put on Purple Day for Lupus Awareness. Note to self: remember to wear purple tomorrow!

Last year, Marla made a collage of everyone's #PutOnPurple pictures.

I haven't done any bloggy linkups for awhile but today I'm linking up with Helene and Sarah about "Firsts." I'll direct you to my first blog post, which is here and explains how I got the nickname Gila Monster. And I'm also sharing my first Instagram, which of course is of one of my cats!

I'm excited for this weekend because my brother and niece will be in town! I won't get to see a lot of them because they'll be at Rock on the Range, but I'll take any time I can get!

Helene in Between


  1. Purple is on my agenda tomorrow! I'm going to meet Marla in LOVE park soon for a LUPUS rally.

  2. The mini-mes on GMA this morning were cracking me up!! So funny!

  3. Ahhhh I wish I could watch GMA in the mornings, I cherish the days I get to watch because Robin Roberts is just my idol!!!

  4. I've got a note on the mirror to put on purple tomorrow too!!

  5. I just noticed you put up my new button! LOVE!!! I know I've been away from blogging more than I would like to be, but you've been in my thoughts every single day. You're one strong mofo, my dear. Thank you so much for the shout out, and I'm cracking up that your first ever IG photo is the kitties. Robin's Mini-Me is adorable. I'm more of a Today Show kind of gal, but I do heart Robin! <3
