Birthday Love and Random

Happy Birthday Sister Dear!!!!! Guess which one has the HUGE stocking and rubbed it in our faces every year? Wish I could fill your stocking up with happy goodness of things like art and books and funky items of clothing!!! You are one of the coolest people I know- so talented and creative. You inspire me so much. Just being in your house is like artistic oxygen! Love you girlie!!!! By the way, I totally think you should be the one to bring the "neck ribbon" back.

And now about me:

Just some random stuff and junk. I'm trying not to be a veritable fount of negativity, but it's hard when the two men in my life are just plain founts. Yes, kids, now the flu bug has hit. I guess it was passing by and saw what a feast the cold bug had made of us and thought "Umm-hmmm! Easy pickin's!" I am so weary of it. I was trying so hard, and yet all day my stomach has felt like it was clamping down on itself. And yet I worked. Bill stayed home with Bo, who got up from the couch twice all day. ExTREMely rare. He's a rather active laddie.

OK so that's enough of that. Just know that my state of mind is pretty low and the wit is dim. So what better to do than blog, right?


This will be the first time I do not post an Effer dare either here or on 2ps. I have done it, but it is absolutely too lame to post, and I don't have the effort at present to devote to improving it or doing another one. But at least my record is still perfect! I haven't missed one yet!!!! If it had turned out it would have been pretty funny. I have some pretty smelly houses I have to go visit these days, and so I did a page titled "Ban Bad Odor" But as it turned out, it wasn't very funny at all. Just lame. *Note to Self: If you use bright yellow and green cardstock and then use black and red for highlights, don't try to rub Amber Clay chalk ink all over a page, especially when the page is about bad odors. It really gives the wrong impression. Rather like something else has been rubbed all over the page. Not so much.

Happy Weekending, and SERIOUSLY. GO SEE PRIDE AND PREJUDICE. I saw it last night with Mom, Kim and Annette. Oh man. I adored it. Jen, you were absolutely right. When it was over and the credits were on, everyone was standing up and I said "Roll it again!" I was ready to watch it again right then, and that's totally not my style. Oh gosh is it good. Good, good, goody, goodness. I wonder if there's a late show......

Sorry you've been battling so much sickness in your house...maybe this means that your house will then be sickness free for the holidays since they have seemed to have all visited now. Hugs to you!

I hope you all feel better soon. Somehow I doubt you could create a page that's too bad to be seen. You are a Creative Genius (See, I've capitalized it for emphasis).

The neck ribbon is fierce. Don't let anyone tell you different.

The flu bug just thought you guys looked like fun, in my opinion.

Post the poo page. We won't judge you. Rather, we'll only judge you internally. What's not fun about that?

Sorry you're sick, my dear.

Kim said...

OMG! That movie is so so so good!! When it comes out on DVD can we have a girls movie night and play again and again?

Sorry you're sick again. Get well soon, I miss you!

Loves!

P.S. In the picture, which is you and which is Jenny? I think you are the little one because you're younger. But the big smile makes me think about the big stocking.

THANK YOU DEARIE! Didn't get a chance to check it until now. You are very sweet. Hmm, I do believe I have just the right ribbon around to match my mismatched jammies hauteur right now. Glad to hear you're feeling better. Didn't get a chance to see p & p YET, but may just have to play hookie and catch the early show tomorrow. LOVED NARNIA! Great job they did - the kids loved it too! Gotta split - Al's heading over to watch another great flick - Here comes the groom! Wish you were here!
