Craig & New Blogs

Today was a wacky day. We went to a picnic this afternoon and the heat kicked my butt apparently. I came home, tried to brave life for a bit and then laid down and proceeded to take a 4 1/2 hour nap. I just woke up at 1230 am, starving. I'm so screwing up my sleep schedule. *eyeroll* Oh well.

I'll tell ya what I do when I'm up late and can't sleep. Or when I'm trying to force myself to go to sleep when I've been doing art and all these ideas are running through my head. It's so hard to go to sleep with ideas in your head, have you found? Anyway, I digress. I turn on a little talk show host. I've watched most of the hosts over the years, Letterman has that dry humor that makes me laugh and he has good guests. But a few months ago I discovered Craig Ferguson. I don't know what it is about the man but he cracks me up. Plus I love listening to his scottish accent. And since I am usually watching him when I'm needing to get art ideas out of my head so I can settle to sleep, I'm watching him at 2 or 3 in the morning. My DH accuses me of waking him up constantly with my huge gaffaws at Craig's monologues. He cracks me up to the point of tears sometimes. I don't know why. It's not like I agree with everything he says, but I love listening to him. I saw Ted Danson on this week and he was talking about how he'll go to sleep and his wife, Mary Steenburgen will be watching someone like Conan or whatever, and he'll wake up when she laughs and finds she has switched over to Craig! I thought, THAT IS WHAT MY DH DOES! lol Go watch him, tell me he doesn't crack you up sometimes... He's on at 1230 am here, so I tape him.

I've been blog surfing while I'm up. I find so many wonderful places I want to share with you but never do. In fact, I save new places I like in a 'new blogs' file in my favorites. It's a huge file right now. It seems like its time for a long blog link post. I'll work on one and post this week so you have something to peruse this summer. Here's a couple to get you started:

I just LOVE your blog and find it very inspiring! I am terrible at Collage :D but your work makes me want to try.

I like Craig too..Sometimes I'll go to his website, and download a few of his clips..i loved the one where he was talkiing about his childhood in Scotland and freezing to death while attending Church in an old bomb shelter!
