- In the midst of a tiring week, it's my 46th birthday. This weekend, I'll be buying a bottle of wine to celebrate my mid-life crisis. 'Cuz I absolutely plan to live to age 92. It will take at least that long to catch up on my "to do" list, and it is my fondest wish to live long enough to be a burden to my children.
How I Want to See Myself:
|Demi Moore post-brat pack|
How I Look to Others:
|Bette Davis as "Frumpy Charlotte," pre-transformation, in Now, Voyager. Actually,|
despite their efforts to make her "frumpy," I think she looks pretty damn good.
How I Feel:
|From The Walking Dead|
- My "baby," Trisha, had an epic tantrum yesterday while Sarah and I were out running errands. Her brother James was in charge but apparently couldn't (or didn't want to) settle her down. When I pulled into the driveway, I heard kicking and screaming all the way from inside. It seriously sounded like somebody had conjured a demon. Damn it, James! I've told you not to practice the Dark Arts when I'm out of the house!
- In addition to the usual stuff, today was errand day. The high point was "buy 10 save $5" day at Kroger. I pride myself on the way I live life on the edge! I left with a cart full of 5+ gallon water bottles and canned food. If the zombie apocalypse strikes, look out, bitches -- I'm ready!
- I haven't finished many books or watched many movies lately, but I'm loving the show Sherlock. Sarah describes the eponymous character as an unholy cross between The Doctor and Sheldon Cooper. "I am not a psychopath. I am a high-functioning sociopath." Love it! I like John Watson's character even better.
Happy Birthday Stephanie!! I hope you have a wonderful day.ReplyDelete
This post made me smile. And "it is my fondest wish to live long enough to be a burden to my children"...I think that needs to be made into a bumper sticker...lol.
It probably is a bumper sticker. :) Maybe a t-shirt too. Thanks for the birthday wishes!Delete
Happy Birthday! Such a funny post, I'm sure you look more like the first picture than the second :)ReplyDelete
Sherlock is a great show, I'm still on season 1 though, but I hope to start s2 soon.
Hah! Well, I do have dark hair -- otherwise no one would confuse me with Demi Moore. :-) Thanks for the birthday wishes! I'm still in Season 1 of Sherlock, too.Delete
Happy Birthday! I love this post. We must all prepare for the zombie apocalypse. :)ReplyDelete
I've put off Sherlock for far too long. I'll be checking it out very soon.
According to my son, preparing for the zombie apocalypse is imperative. That's one of the reasons he spends so much time playing video games like Left for Dead -- strategic training. ;-) Thanks for the birthday wishes, Josh!Delete
Thank you! :-)Delete
'It seriously sounded like somebody had conjured a demon'.
Ha, that made me chuckle, sometimes the screaming from the children next door does sound like the entirety of hell was coming up though the ground.
Thank you for the birthday wishes and for the laugh. :-) You aren't my next door neighbor, are you?Delete
