Although I don’t really want to sell it, I can’t imagine ever wearing my wedding dress again, unless it is for a WEDDING DRESS TEA PARTY!!! My friends/relatives and I have discussed doing this, ALL of us going out and wearing our wedding dresses/bridesmaid/grad dresses – all those dresses that are beautiful but get used only once or twice.
So, a wedding dress tea party is in order (or beer party, whatever)
That’s a picture of my dress… not me in the picture, but I think I looked awesome, and it was the most comfortable dress ever. I wore flip flops under and danced all night – my feet loved me.
I love my kitties – Jasper (the fluffy mommy calico) and Leo (the grey and black “baby”). They are so big they are almost mutants… as if they were almost going to grow into lynxes (J) and Lions (L). They are even bigger because they are indoor cats and don’t get much exercise. They aren’t fat, but are very solid, and would be fat if I left out a bowl of crunchies for them.
They sure are cute! Here’s a picture of Mr. Kitty eating a blade of grass. No doubt he puked after. Oh yeah – they do go outside, but only at my parents’ cabin on the ocean.
Because my maiden name was so common (Smith), a plastic surgeon’s office booked me in for a nose job instead of a tailbone job (long story, but I guess I was born part cat). A couple of days before my tailbone surgery, the DR’s office calls and says that they almost were going to give me a nose job because they had booked the wrong kim smith in. Glad I got married and changed my name :)
Maybe too much fruit. I don’t know if this is a good thing because there is a lot of sugar in fruit. Harrumph.
Yeah, I’m a little ashamed when I’m browsing through the youth section of the library. But some of the books are just so good, especially the “fantasy” genre. My fave: Treasure at the Heart of the Tanglewood by Meredith Ann Pierce. Maybe I’ll always be a kid at heart.
Harrison Ford and Joaquin Phoenix can take a back seat. Christian Bale is now in.
I just told my husband to go to google images and look for a C Bale haircut. My husband’s hair is getting pretty long. Normally he just shaves it, but I told him to go GQ and get one of Christian’s haircuts.
Okay, maybe it’s not a fascination, but I’ve always liked gray hair, on both men and women. I love it when women keep their gray hair a bit long, and I’ll even complement them on it. I also love it when people go gray/white early on in life. Perhaps I won’t like it when it hits me, but we’ll see. I think I will like it. Wrinkles, not so much, and I am not blessed with good genes in that regard. My grandma’s wrinkles are sooooo bad! I have thin skin.
I also like interesting/unique eye colours, gold would be my favourite, or green trim with gold interior. Even better when someone has two different coloured eyes! So cool.
So there we have it, random thing about me number one.
A coffee-ish creamy chocolate bar. Fair trade and organic, got it from MEC. Very yummy indeed.
Well, this was purchased for quantity, not quality, on vacation because we just thought it was funny to buy such a gigantic bar. We got the chocolate hazelnut one (couldn’t find a picture of it online). We ate it all in a week. It actually was quite good. Milk chocolate, just like the Buffalo likes.
Hey, when it comes to chocolate, almost anything goes with me… as long as it’s not that gross plastic-tasting chocolate-like easter bunny crap that some companies come out with. Yuck.
yep, the Lindt Chili chocolate bar tickled my fancy. Got mixed reviews from the hubby and friend, but I loved it.
Sweet with a little tickling of the tonsils. Creamy and smooth, melt in your mouth AND in your hands.
42 chocolate bars to go. life doesn’t suck.
I went to the market today and bought 8 apples and did not use a bag. The lady at the cashier looked at me like I was crazy and a pain in the ass, but I helped her move them, so she ended up smiling. I put them and the onion in my computer back pack, and carried the bananas and cherries. :) YAY ME!
Eventually I’d like to be good at breakdancing or hiphop, but for now I’ll keep it to a goal that’s doable in the short term (because I don’t dance at all). Here’s an instructional video:
I’m going to have to build up my upper body strength, so push-ups it is for me!
I wonder how much breakdancing I could learn just from watching clips on the internet. Hmmmm…. Maybe in the fall I’ll take a class if I can find one close to work or home.
1. The Tower at Stony Wood by Patricia A. McKillip
He did a long time ago, but it has been way too long. Beck likes robots. Maybe he should have a robot playing the banjo. He also fancies machines, so I might recommend to him that he create a banjo machine.
I’m SOOOOOOO stoked for the show in August. First row balcony seats at the Orpheum. Sweeeeeeeetass.
Ride one took Roy and I up to Bob Muckle’s archaeology site up the Seymour Valley. It’s a historic site, looking at totally cool stuff left behind from Japanese logging camps from the 1920’s. They even found a tube of Colgate toothpaste from that time. The Japanese bath was the best find. I miss archaeology – I minored in it in university & even went on a summer-long field school in Bella Coola, BC.
Ride two was once again up the Seymour Valley, with the purpose of smuggling ferns.
I like that biking works out totally different muscles than running (I love trail running). I also like that it can get you places so fast. Riding down hills really fast is fun. Hmmm… I also like that biking strengthens the muscles around my knees. That can only be a good thing because I run a lot.
When Zoe turned 4 years old I gave her a book that I had written for her birthday. It was a story surrounding a walk that her and I had gone on, and I drew pictures in it for her to colour in. She absolutely loved it.
Now she’s 7 years old, and I have started another book for her. It has been on my plate for months now. It is very time consuming, and I just haven’t been focused. I have all sorts of excuses, but I just need to sit down and write/draw. I’m excited about this book… it is magical, with Zoe and myself (and a friendly monster!) as the main characters.
My short-term goal: work on Zoe’s book for half an hour each day over the next 3 days. I’ll see how far I get, and will write in my goal (projected time & strategy) for finishing the book.
I got quite a bit finished… of the story. It’s 4200 words, a goddam essay. haha. It’s a good magical story for an 8 year old. I thought she was 7, but it turns out she’s 8. Where does time go?
Now I just have to illustrate it. That’s fun too. Maybe one day I’ll actually write a book to get published.
