It is finally Friday, after a long and arduous four whole days. I tell you it is exhausting. Southern (or, Mason Dixon) belle that I be. We suffer from a huge identity crisis in St. Louis. We are split in half by the Mason Dixon line (caused some horrible repercussions during the Civil War), so I’m never sure if I’m a Damned Yankee or a Southern Belle. So, since I don’t really know, I’m neither. I’m a dweller of Middle Earth, but I don’t have hairy feet (thank God). I have enough issues without worrying about the hairy feet thing. I am horribly short, but I don’t think I’m a Hobbit. I don’t live in those adorable houses and I don’t go barefoot all year round. I wouldn’t mind running into Ian McKlellan as Gandolf,(or even Richard III) though. Oh, and yes, I know he doesn’t swing my way. I can still adore from afar thankyouverymuch. Does anyone remember the Beach Boys song “California Girls”? Well, I’m a Midwest girl and “the Midwest farmer’s daughters really make you feel alright.” WTF????????? Is that lame or what? Was Brian too fried to come up with something more clever or was he just as clueless as he seemed? You know I thought I was past being p.o’d about that issue, but it seems it still makes me mad. It really isn’t worth it, but I can work up a rant on no notice at all.
I have no pictures. This has been a lamo week. I carry the camera everywhere yet seem incapable of thinking about it. I have no pics of Grover or Stinky or knitting or spinning or garden or anything. I need to get my act in gear and I apologize. Seriously, I love this blog and I want it to be entertaining, so it’s very nice to have colors and designs and stuff stuck in between the words. I’m all for illustrated books. I grew up on them and if I could read adult illustrated books (as opposed to graphic novels) I would love them. I have absolutely nothing against graphic novels (I love the artwork), but I would love to see what an illustrator thought Stephanie Plum or Kinsey Millhone looked like, wouldn’t you? And, I don’t think the actress who plays Temperance Brennan looks like I thought she would look and I have found the series rather disappointing and judgmental. My niece, Peanut, and I had a short conversation about that recently. Gad. I’m so opinionated this morning.
So, for the time being (for now. this moment. maybe temporarily) I am working four days a week and my day off is Monday. I am not complaining, but I am so easily confused anymore.
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. This one is not 3 or 4 days long. Try to remember that. I will leave you with a video of “California Girls” by the Beach Boys. Please watch this and let me know if you think they are singing a different song or not. At first I thought they were ripped and they very well might have been, but I think this is just one of those bizarre videos of the era that made no sense whatsoever.
Have a fabulous wonderful warm and relaxing weekend. Seriously. You do not want me coming up there, so you just better behave misbehave.
