monday monday! *happy dance* i assure you the happy dance is more for being caught up than it is for being monday. ;)- i know ya’ll know what i mean. here are my picks for the week…
i was driving the other day and remembered being little and full of massive amounts of this stuff. it seemed to seep from the deepest, silliest places in me. i am not sure if it’s a product of having a bunch of time alone as a child or the only child syndrome (pre-brother) or maybe just a super cool imagination gene, i dunno. but anyway, i couldn’t just fold clothes and put them away, i had to make an elaborate scenario in my head where laundry folding would somehow become a full blown fabric store (think joanne’s) and drinking chocolate milk would have to become more grand as well… it would be some handmade exotic concoction that droves of people would line up and stumble over themselves to get a taste of. as my aunt would say, cutting a sandwich in fourths made it taste better. hey it’s the little things i always say. so anyway, among some of my favorite episodes being the universal “hot lava” while jumping from bed to bed i remembered a particular gem… i used to pick the pussywillows from my step-mothers vase in her entryway and pocket my new special friends to send out on secret missions later from our car window. ahhhhh.
2. the ability to laugh at oneself.
if i didn’t possess this particular ability, i would be shriveled up and dead by now. i can think many an instance where crawling under a rock is totally an acceptable response, however, laughing at myself instead has taught me to love those idiotic things in myself that make me human. here enjoy this for example: you know how there are those women that everyone in the world points and laughs at because somehow she managed to drive off with the gas pump still attached to her tank (i know there are images that roam the internet for everyones entertainment on this exact subject). well, apparently i am that girl. oh yes. that was indeed a fun day. i blame it on the wedding i was getting ready to shoot that day. 😉
3. pop rocks.
come on children of the 80’s friends… you know they are awesome.
i ordered them on my sandwich last night and trust me, finding an establishment that offers these is a hallelujah moment all on its own.
5. embarrassing my kids.
my dad did it for me and i get the joy and pleasure of passing it on. oh lucky lucky them.
6. hair dye.
thank you god. thank you.
song of the week (enjoy!):
have a great week friends. 🙂
