Saturday Night Taylor Swift Open Thread

She may not be the greatest singer who ever lived but I wish I had the interest Tay earns on her money.

    Tay and Tim have an interesting connection. Her first hit was titled “Tim McGraw” even though she had never met him. Then she toured with Tim and Faith as an opening act. Now they are performing together.

    This song is the reason I am a Tay Swift fan:

      Apparently, not good enough for Tea Party groups’ 501 applications that by law are supposed to take only 270 days for a decision.

      The people in this video include Tay’s band and best friend Abigail. One of the things I like about Tay is the way she remembers the little people who helped her on the road to success as well as her fans.

      Maybe it’s insincere but it’s better than stars who act entitled.

    Where is everybody? Did the black helicopters come and get you all?

    I know it’s Sunday and this is a day of rest, but I’ll be resting at work. Please send me your pity and try to stay out of trouble while I’m gone.

        I’m making a zillion cookies to be carried to a family thing and it is 120 degrees in the kitchen so I have to sit near it to hear the oven ding. The intertubes is my company while waiting.

      I’m running grandmother camp today.two kids and a dog in a baby pool fighting over my plastic measuring cups. There’s a ton of pool toys in there, but it’s only the measuring cups that are worth having I guess.

      Just got back from the zoo for new baby giraffe’s first day out in the big yard with both his mom and dad. Zookeepers were on standby in case dad was not amused. All went well 🙂

      I’m in the throes of remodeling my kitchen. and losing my mind trying to make decisions about countertops. If ANYONE has any suggestions about countertop material – I’ve begin to explore recycled glass now as I can’t find anything in quartz to use in my very very dark kitchen (no natural light). I’m really getting exhausted by this entire process. But i check in here as often as I can.

      • Depending on the color and hue of dark, you might consider copper or some other metallic to make it pop. Just hammer it out over wood and then glue it on. Seal the edges underneath with tiny nails.

        Here’s an example pic:

        • leslie says:

          OMG that’s beautiful!

        • leslie says:

          I’m having white cabinets installed and a light floor as well. The current cabinets are dark wood and the floor is dark red tile as well. I don’t know what the designer was thinking when they did this back in the 70’s. I’ve been here 20 years and have only just had income enough to do this. *Thank heaven*

        • Is the red tile floor still in good shape? Because copper might be the perfect compliment to white cabinets and a red floor…

        • HELENK says:

          use that for the counter and glass tile as a backspash it will reflect

        • leslie says:

          actually the red floor is an utter disaster and has been coming apart for the last 3 years. I tried to replace it 2 years ago, but each time I selected a pattern/style, it had either been discontinued or was too costly for my limited budget.

          I love the copper idea. I’ve just contacte the contractor, but he won’t get back to me until tomorrow.

        • leslie says:

          Gaaagh!! my typing is atrocious.
          Thank you both for your suggestions. My head is spinning as I’ve made some recent changes (recent as of yesterday) to the plans. I’m probably going to drive the contractor as crazy as I have become.

        • Contractors are familiar with crazy. Remember, this is your first time remodeling (IIRC), and you won’t be perfect at doing it. As long as you get what makes you happy, it’ll all work out in the end. Good luck!

      • Lulu says:

        I got white quartz countertops almost ten years ago and they still look new. I like light countertops because I can see the dirt easier to clean them. They are workhorse countertops with no maintenance unlike stone. My kitchen has dark cabinets but does have natural light. Have you considered down lights on the counters attached and wired on the bottom of the upper cabinets. We did that on my son’s little dark townhouse kitchen and it helped a lot and it also has white quartz counters and bright a turquoise glass subway tile backsplash with darker cabinets.

        • wmcb says:

          I love white quartz. I have the opposite – a golden granite with tons of movement, mica chunks, blacks veining, etc. It’s an exotic, and gorgeous. I hate it. You can’t see ANYTHING on it. There can be piles of crumbs of blobs of jelly, chicken juice, or whatver and you’d never know. I’m constantly stooping down trying to look across it at eye level to see if it’s clean or not. Oops, missed stuff – wipe some more.

          If we thought we’d be staying in this house for more than a few more years, we’d change it. But likely will be moving on within 5 years, so I deal.

        • leslie says:

          How nice to hear about the white quartz. I just found one – a couple of hours ago that almost matches the recycled glass and if it hasn’t been discontinued (like the floor tiles were nearly 2 years ago) I think i found my counter.
          I like white for the counter for the same reasons as wmcb. I want to see the dirt and smudges so I can clean them up right away.

          I’m planning to use the lights under the counter and adding increased wattage in the ceiling. The older I get the more light I need. 😉

          I really appreciate all your suggestions. Thank you so much.

        • votermom says:

          If you have pics of your kitchen in progress be sure to share! 🙂

        • Lulu says:

          Yeah! I hope you like them as much as I have. They are easier to see to clean. If any discoloration like food coloring, beet juice, tea, coffee can be bleached up quickly. And they reflect light so the room seems brighter.

    You can cheat on what you report as income to get health insurance subsidies in the new state markets for Obamacare. They have apparently given up on the completing the necessary data and interface systems (which everyone already knew was impossible). Self-reporting of income will be the rule which should make budgets bust quickly. The mess is about to get bigger and messier. I have seen no mention of penalties for lying. This should be called the “what does it matter?” administration.

    • DandyTiger says:

      The light at the end of the tunnel is indeed a train coming.

      • Lulu says:

        This I think is being done to get everyone on some kind of coverage and then dare the states and Republicans to cut’em off. Also to gull individuals into signing up with false information only to kill’em with sticker shock when they get around to veryifying info. It reminds me of the mortgage home loan AND student loan shell games to enrich CERTAIN people, screw consumers and political enemies, and rob the taxpayers.

        • Lulu says:

          Also note the timing of sneaking it out on a holiday weekend, during the Egyptian re-revolution and the Trayvon trial. One trick pony White House strikes again.

        • leslie says:

          I’m certainly not defending this administration, but GWB did the same. I cannot remember what Clinton’s did, but i’m quite sure, this is not new.

    • gram cracka says:

      Was nothing learned from the mortgage default debacle? Liar loans granted based on unverified income contributed to the 2008 housing bubble collapse. If people lied about their income to get a mortgage why wouldn’t they lie about their income to get lower cost subsidized health insurance?

    I love it when these turn out like this:
