Silly Stuff and Sunshine

Good morning. Or afternoon. Or evening.

I was missing from blogger for about 12 days...now I feel like playing catch-up.

Let's start with a fun game called "10 Facts About Me".

                  1. I like Coke better than Pepsi, but prefer Diet Pepsi over Diet Coke.
2. I read magazines back to front
                  3. I drink a lot of coffee, probably like 6-8 cups a day, but yet..
4. I'm rarely awake after midnight. Although lately,
          5. I've had a bit of insomnia so The Hubs and I have been watching old shows like The Rockford Files and b&w Sherlock Holmes. Then afterwards...
6. I read books about the French Revolution.
                7. I hate top 40. I only listen to webradio and have been stuck on http://www.lounge.fm/ for the past few months. (that's why it's hard for me to have a good time at the crappy clubs my city has - they all play top 40. It's an insult to my ears after listening to http://www.lounge.fm/ all day. Sorry S, let's go karaoking!!)
8. I'm afraid of very deep water, (afraid something's gonna grab my leg or I'll look down and see..), statues (probably stems from watching Clash of the Titans when I was like four) and snakes (when I was in 3rd grade an animal handler came to my school and tried to make me touch a snake when I said "No" they still tried to force it on me until I climbed up on the bookshelf and sat there until they left. - true story)
          9. I play the clarinet and violin and have a dream of playing my violin in an old creepy cemetery in Paris one day.
10. Speaking of cemeteries, I like to do gravestone rubbings and am always looking for my name. Don't ask why...maybe gives me a sense of my own mortality or something profound like that or maybe it's just because I'm a Scorpio and we seem to be attracted to dark things.

Now, wasn't that fun?! What are some fun facts about you??
================================================
What did I do yesterday? Went to see Picky Pants in a play about how "Coyote Steals Summer". Very cute, she was a rabbit.

Picky Pants rabbit impersonation
What did I wear?

The 'fit:
jeans: Gloria Vanderbilt/thrift/2.50
tank: Express/friends yard sale/1
shoes: Old Navy/same/10
Total: $13.50

broke one of my rules...combined purple and pink! {gasp!} so daring, I know. But gotta start slow with these kind of things...for some rule-breakin'-inspiration check out other bloggers here, I know I'm gonna!

May not look like much, but these are my "lucky" shoes. I've worn them to quite a few Phoenix concerts and just for that they are now Lucky in my book!

Picky Pants and I being silly (see pic below). She's probably singing "Dare" by Gorillaz

Probably doing Chopsticks. The only tune I know on the piano.

relax,

I LOVE The Rockford Files. I have a major,major crush on James Garner. I saw him on tv talking about his step mum, and he got all choked up and well..that was that. Instant love♥

I am also afraid of deep water.Although I wish I wasn't. I have a thing for sailboats and the ocean.

It's a dream to play the violin! I imagine myself playing on said sailboat to all the sea life, and calling the whales to me...:)

I know what you mean about deep water. When I was 17 I went to see the movie jaws , and have been afraid of deep water. It doesn't matter pond , lake, I know there is a fresh water shark out there just waiting to be discovered by eating me.
I myself can play twinkle, twinkle little star on the violin.
Now you are watching the good stuff "Sherlock Holmes".
Love the pants and the shoes.
