So I had this post that was all sad and syrupy and...well, just sad. It smacked of all small town goodness, missing momma and finding old friends that I was totally ashamed that I had neglected. It was soooo sad it made me cry to write. Well - I'm totally not in the mood for crying. So screw that!
I had a kick ass weekend so why should I be crying on a Monday night, right? Well, except that they didn't have a new "Big Bang Theory" and those kooky geeks make me laugh every time. But I did have homemade country fried steak and mashed potatoes. My car got washed by my awesome brother and the garden got further along. Today I planted pineapple sage and dill.
How can you not love this smooshy face??????
I do have a restaurant review if you're in the area - don't go to a place called "Mimi's Cafe". The food was totally mediocre, the service was horribly slow and the decor sucked wind. It was all, "look at me, I'm New Orleans style...." but it wasn't really. Any person that has been to NOLA would not think Nawlins if they walked in there. It was some idiots idea about NOLA that had never been there - they probably wouldn't know what the "trinity" of cajun cooking was if Emeril "bammed" them upside the head. Anyway - drop by, pick up some muffins to go though - they were good.
Why is it so difficult to find the perfect inbetween sandal? And why does every shoe designer lately think that if the shoe is flat, it MUST have a buckle on the toe?...Just wondering.
Does Sephora know about Ulta? Because I'm thinking if someone actually told Sephora that someone that doesn't have their nose stuck up in the air sells make-up, they might would be a bit more nervous about business. Of course I would love some fabulous guy with better hair than me to tell me that I look gorgeous and don't actually need that $50 moisturizer that I have my hands on....but those conceited folks at Sephora won't tell you that. That's why I love the display at Ulta that tells you the Oil of Olay is just as good (as published in whatever magazine).
Now...I'm thinking that I may need to have a contest to help me name my photography business/etsy shop. I've thought and thought and I can't come up with something that captures well, "me", without being trite and hackneyed. So... what do you think? Is a contest in order? These are things that are absolutely "me".... let me know if you can come up with the perfect name for the shop.
1 - I love to read. My favorite books are: To Kill a Mockingbird, The Secret Garden, Little Women, and Sense and Sensibility.
2 - I love photography (natch). Dorothea Lang and Annie are major icons to me.
3 - I love music - all kinds, from the 30's up until today. You can find any style of music on my iPod. Except opera. Megan tried to convince me - and though I think it's pretty, it's not me.
4 - I am sort of a space geek. I grew up on Star Trek and will still watch all the varied incarnations from time to time.
5 - Though I love vampire stories (Buffy the Vampire Slayer? BIG fan), I'm not goth in anyway.
6 - Favorite movies include: Field of Dreams, Bull Durham, Breakfast at Tiffany, Young Frankenstein, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, Rebecca, Roman Holiday and Rear Window.
Leave your best suggestions as a comment and I'll have a drawing at the end of the week.
