Okay, as Kimber has pointed out I have been a very, very bad blogger. I'm trying to finish a ms right now and it's consuming me and I can't seem to make my brain do anything else.

Okay, I let my brain watch some of the Grammy's. (I have to take some breaks.) Did you see that song with Ludacris and Mary J. Blige? I know I'm pretty out of it when it comes to hip hop music, but I can't believe I'd never heard that song before. What an amazing song and moving performance. Made me cry.



Cool to see the Police perform again, too... Even if Sting can't hit the high notes anymore. Actually, I really enjoyed the Grammy's. For elderly people like me who don't listen to a huge amount of radio anymore, it's a great way to discover artists you shouldn't have missed. Connie Bailey Rae. How have I missed her? Must go shopping for music once this damn book is done!

(Hope that imbedded music clip is legal...)

Ah crud, I missed the grammys. I better make sure I remind the heck out of myself so I don't miss the freaking Oscar's.

It's bad enough I missed the Super Bowl Half time show and missed Prince my favorite artist of all time preform.

Good luck with the MS.

Okay, now I'm feeling guilty.
I support your priorities.
Manuscript first, blogs second.

But I do feel better now that the chocolate is further down on your blog, almost under the fold.

No Grammys for me. I prefer just to watch the highlights on the awards shows. Those are covered everywhere today.

I missed the Grammy's too! I can't even remember what I was doing?

You're funny.

Hello Maureen! I didn't know you had a blog outside of the Drunk Writers. I'll stick you on my blogroll if that's okay...

I caught bits and pieces of the Grammys. Love the MJB/Ludacris song, missed CBR (who is she?) and the Police, but caught Xtina sing 'It's a Man's World' - WOW - that girl can SING! I wonder if Britney was watching? :)

And good for you for putting your ms above your blog! Wish I could say the same...

Paula, Xtina was amazing. I meant to mention her, but was too lazy to look up the spelling of her last name. You found a great solution to that.

thanks for the add on the blogroll. I'll add you, too.

I intended to watch the Grammy's and didn't. Like Molly I'm not even sure what I was doing. Nothing productive I'm sure. :)

I did watch The Dresden Files and Battlestar Galatica though.

And I agree, good for you for having your priorities straight! I just blog at work, doesn't cut into my writing time that way. LOL Don't tell on me!

Ha ha! Christine - that's hilarious. (I do too... ssshhhh!!!!!)

Maureen - we ALL need to blog less and write more. And we we probably need to shop less (or is that just me?) It used to be that I sat down to write and was distracted by shopbop.com, then it was ebay's addictive endless stream of things I don't need but gotta have, and now it's blogging guilt. No more, I say!
