I liked life a whole lot more when you used to see people sitting there and wonder what they were thinking.
For the life of me I can’t remember ever worrying about what people were eating for lunch . . . or dinner . . . or breakfast. . .
I also never really worried about what people looked like when they were looking at themselves in the mirror or how their faces looked when they made those duck lips and squinted their eyes kinda.
I certainly never took pics of me drunk out of my mind so that my brother had evidence to use against me with the grandparents. I actually never took pics of anything that anyone could use against me later in life.
I think people are going to miss out on a whole lot of fun when they get older because they aren’t going to be able to tell stories about the good old days on account of someone will be able to look it up, pay Facebook a fee, and prove you are lying. Some people call it lying, I call it being creative.
Now everyone tells you and shows you everything. It kind of jumps from “hi, wanna be my friend?” to “hi, wanna see me naked?” I like to take it much slower.
Is there anything more attractive than a man in sandals and dark socks with shorts and pasty white legs?? Can you say Canadian on holiday?
I mean you have to have compassion that wearing sandals in the snow with bare feet can be really tough. AND unfortunately, you book your holidays to go up to the lake but you never know when a snow storm could hit so ya the socks are kind of necessary. I will go that far.
But a pasty white naked man with dark socks is more impactful than a cold shower.

Sometimes I like to get all dressed up like a geek and go to the library and just hang out in the stacks.
I like to set up a little booth way in the back and put out an “information and advice” sign so that people who just come to find a book, or to read, or to study … get more than what they paid for. People get so tired of pamphlets … I mean other than folding out what tricks can they do? It is my service to humanity. Not that it costs anything for them to come to the library but sometimes free things should include more free things on account of what should people with money have all the fun??
People are always doubtful at first but when I start handing out free glasses of wine, they are totally into it, and usually there is a line up of people wanting to know stuff about life and the world and many important things that I am perfectly qualified to advise them on. Of course I have to herd the little kids back to story corner because as cute as they are, I am not going to change their milk from their sippy cups to wine.
I only fill the sippy cups from the seniors.
I was never one of those kids who threw tantrums and carried on like a pork chop. I mean don’t get me wrong, I did give it a go. I screamed. I threw myself on the ground. I attracted a large crowd. I dialled 911 and reported my parents as being abusive and failing to supply me with life giving candy when I needed it most.
I even watched my brother give it a go in case I had missed some of the finer points.
We both got spankings.
No-one told us about the part that happens AFTER the performance when the police hand over “custody” back to the parents and you have to go home with them alone.
We regrouped, brainstormed, and came up with more effective ways of meeting our needs. Being as we were both about 2 and 3, we had to use a little more non verbal communication than most committees might, but we managed.
Peeing your pants works when you no longer want to stay somewhere. Sometimes you have to take it a step further than that but that would have to be a situation bad enough to consider gnawing off your own arm.
Psychological manipulation works best, both in the forming of the request and the response to the initial answer.
I have been waiting to blog this for quite a while…just something I have had in my head and then it would happen that SL made things hard for me and taking pictures was TERRIBLE. SO…here is the last set of pics that did not turn out too well. Again….I apologize, but I STILL LOVE SO MANY things about this look. I hope the goodness of it will still shine through!
*Undershirt: Izzie’s – Basic Longsleeve Shirt nectarine (Izzie has come out with a WONDERFUL set of longsleeve shirts AND a set of low cut T’s in 4 different sets of colors to go along with the seasons. This one is nectarine and is from the summer season of her longsleeve shirts. These shirts are a wardrobe basic and would be a welcome addition to any inventory!)
Hairbase: Analog Dog (AD) – hair base – sun (This set of hairbases is free at Analog Dog! You can never have to many hairbases and since Underscore does not currently have a set, I looked around to find one that I liked for this particular hair. Analog Dog was perfect!)
I went shopping for the perfect Easter Egg yesterday. One that was all pretty and lovely and chocolatey. (it’s a word if I say it is a word … it is my blog!)
I prayed about it. I figured this being a religious holiday and this being important to me that I would ask for the perfect egg to be made just for me and that there be some kind of sign that THIS was the one. I sometimes have difficulties making up my mind when signs are not like … obvious.
I think the unclear sign thing is probably responsible for more bad marriages than anything else. People think they hear angels singing and it is just a fridge door left open too long somewhere.
So I went out and the Easter egg aisle was a complete free for all with people swearing at one another to get the hell out of their way they had to get home in time to go to church and other people threatening to use their pepper spray if someone didn’t hand over their Cadbury’s. I walked along, stepping over bodies, and avoiding small children clearly not needing any more chocolate or any other stimulant and saw a light down at the end of a long aisle.
There is a Cosmetic Fair coming to SL. I was dancing on my chair when I saw that.
I am a cosmetic junky. Ever since Yardley came out with their little Pot’o Gloss line I was hooked. I love all things cosmetic. I like to just stand in the perfume, cosmetic departments and drool.
I like the containers, I like the packaging … I love it all. I have dozens of everything …
I don’t even need to open them, it is just knowing that if I wanted to … I could.
Hubby was taken a restraining order out against the Avon Lady. I have to be accompanied into that department of the store now. My makeup bag is often the biggest part of my luggage going anywhere.
I do try to reduce and simplify. I look at all those women with their tiny little all in one, fab, expensive compacts … and ya … I have dozens of those.
I just never have been able to pick out the right shade of lipstick. I like it in the store and hate it when I get home so now I have my one daughter shopping for lipsticks for me. She couldn’t handle me wearing the wrong shade of green with my pink outfit.
According to the news that is brought to my desktop every morning – riveting stuff, this falling in the category of “Oh for freaking out loud do I LOOK like I care about this crap?” Kate Middleton’s nose is in big demand at the local Plastic Surgeons Office.
Before I go on I should tell you I was practicing Plastic Surgery as a little girl on the farm in the frozen northland and I am not sure what the big whoop is with the whole profession or why they make them even go to school. How much education does it take to get a knife or scissors out and cut up your brother’s plastic soldiers?? He did the same to my Barbies. Then you get a match, light a candle and melt them back together again. But NOT the Barbie parts on the soldier .. that would be mad scientist type of domain and you have to act responsibly with these things.
Anyway Kate’s nose … and then there are other parts people want … Cameron Diaz’s legs, Selma Hyack’s breasts, Angelina Jolie’s lips …lets get to the point. How can we let these injustices go on??
I suppose if they take these women to court from the plastic surgeons office and the judge charges them with copyright infringement, someone has to repossess the nose in question? Who gets custody of it?
Today was like popcorn time on acid.
Sometimes you just cannot eat enough popcorn to do the entertainment justice. I mean I know some people start their days with the daily news, their carefully selected main page on the computer of news sources, their favourites all connecting with them on their phones as they ride to work … but I like to take the random gamble and just show up on different social media and sit back and enjoy the show. I mean what is more rivetting than what you are eating at the moment, or that your cat had kittens, or that they’ve come up with yet another way to test your friends and see if they are real friends and will repost whatever?
Today there was drama and threats and secret undercover missions. People’s imagination are absolutley HIGH sterical … even when they are not really trying. Isn’t that magical?
I live for days like this.
I laughed. I cried. I passed gas.
