Bits and Bobs...

Well, one thing I have learned in the last year is that time may always be relied upon to be consistent. There will always be 24 hours in a day no matter how hard I try to wish them hurry along... at least for the next week and a half...

I have recently concluded that my hair in the morning resembles what would have been found atop the offspring of Einstein and Diana Ross. (Especially with humidity.)

Flash tape is freakin amazing!

Pygmy monkeys are damn cute.

Life is more fun when you are really living it...

Shopping for pretty things is one of my favorite things to do - for me or for whomever. Lucky for me - lots of weddings, showers and babies coming up...

I go back and forth between wondering why life is so damn hard sometimes and thinking that my life is actually kind of like a real live fairy tale. Think I'll try to focus more on the latter.

Pop and fast food are likely responsible for a very large percentage of North America's health issues. I'm going to start trying to have them made illegal. (well, maybe we could keep just one McDonald's open - you know - for that twice a year when I will actually eat there... and then spend the next couple of days feeling like poop...imagine the line ups?)

Before I die, I want to zip line across the amazon, buy some article of clothing in Paris (maybe even eat a real french croissant), see a real live Opera and attend a masquerade ball. (There are more things, but these are some of the more recent additions.)

I really miss my friends right now.

I wish I had a really big slice of chocolate cake, a glass of yummy red wine and a bubble bath. Maybe tomorrow ;-) (the only thing that could make that better is Spartan there feeding me the cake, lol)

The zip line thing sounds fun.

I have friends who went on a cruise someplace last year. They wound up taking a zip line through a jungle to get to a beach resort.

Now that's a destination!

I could use a nice long bath, wine and some cake too.

I so want to go to a masquerade ball. You mentioning it made me think of the very short ball in that movie The Labyrinth. There are people in a bubble with opulant decor, all dressed gorgeously with masks on...ooohhhh...i want to go to one like that (but one i am not trapped at..lol)

Have a great weekend.

earl - see, now that's how you do it - go on a cruise and then somewhere along the way do something like that! I've never been on a cruise either *adds to bucket list*

kaylee! Nice to see you around these parts again!

being brazen - wasnt that movie fnatastic? I was a kid when it came out - but I had a wee crush on bowie. Could still sing along to all of the songs... lol

ruby - you've been missed! Copycat away!

A cruise would be great! However, dear, practical hubby keeps reminding me that I'm scared of the ocean. *sigh*

I'll do the zip line with you, though! That sounds like a blast!

elizabeth said...

callie - maybe if you took enough ativan?

Let's plan the zipline... who else wants in? Say for 2015? I'm free in August. ;-)

Screw pop and fast food, we need to outline energy drinks!

elizabeth said...

Yeah... but I actually drink them on occasion... ;-(
