Friday Fragments


Friday Fragments is hosted by Unknown Mama for bloggers to post a list of short things on their minds that aren't really enough for a whole post to give Mrs. 4444 a break for the summer. Here we go:

Fifth Third Bank

I always thought Fifth Third was the dumbest name for a bank (or any company for that matter) and this week I found out how they got that name. Read my "What a Dumb Name" post to find out.

Look Down

Wow!  How much is here?
It pays to look at the ground as you walk--found $50 at the Indians game when going for pizza! It was just lying on the floor by the exit from the Club lounge. I didn't see anyone drop it and no one seemed to be looking for it, so finders keepers, right? I figured if I didn't pick it up, someone else would so it might as well be me. I really feel bad though for the person who lost it. That's a nice chunk of change. Since all the food in that are is complimentary, I wonder why they even took out their money.

Baked French Toast

Baked French Toast
Ever had baked French Toast? I never heard of it until yesterday at the Indians game. Since I like French Toast, I gave it a try and YUMMY! I had three helpings of it. Couldn't convince Gerard to taste it though, he missed out on a delicious treat there!

Baseball

We are both excited that the Red Sox and Indians are doing great this year and hoping both our teams win their divisions. The Red Sox lead in walk off homeruns and the Indians are right behind them--makes for an exciting season! We're loving it! Had a great time at the Indians game yesterday--now they have an 8-game winning streak going! Drew Stuggs expresses exactly how I feel about this year's Indians team in this short interview after yesterday's game: Stubbs Praises Raburn, Talks Win Streak.

Dog TV

When I saw Abby actually watching Dog TV when we first put it on yesterday, I was impressed. However, her interest in it has waned. We tried leaving it on for her while we went to the Indians game and when we got back, our goofy TV was on power saver and had switched to the Indians game channel! Have no idea how that happened, but Abby must have wanted to watch the tribe game instead. It's a mystery! I like the relaxing music though and the beautiful scenery. This morning though when we put it on, she showed no interest in it.

Pride and Prejudice

I am currently trying to read this book but find it to be very boring and absolutely hate the writing style. I've heard so many raving about how great it is that I was curious so got it from the library, but it is slow moving because I keep dozing off on it. Maybe it's just I'm strange, but so far, I really hate it. Have you ever read this? What did you think of it.

Bah!!! I'm a Yankees fan...sorry. But those #@!! Yankees aren't playing ball. {{{sigh}}} Of course, I never liked A-Rod one iota, hoping he will be banned from baseball.

$50!?!! Cool.

Perhaps the dog is more of a baseball fan than a dog fan? You know chasing the ball and all that stuff?

I love the story about how the bank got it's name! It reminds me of the name Seven of Nine from Star Wars. My family watches it and I think she's called that because she #7 of a collective of 9. How lucky to find $50! I would feel sorry for the person who lost it too because that is a big chunk of change I'd definitely miss. Have a fabulous weekend!

Finding $50.00 is awesome. Good for you.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. :)

Yay for finding $50! Baked french toast is yummy! Gerard certainly did miss out! My hubby doesn't care for french toast much but he really likes the baked one. Maybe the cats got tired of watching Dog TV and changed it to the game! I haven't read that book and don't think I will. If books don't pull me in and keep me wanting to turn the pages, I don't bother continuing to read it since there's too many books out there more enjoyable.
