Oi! Just a quick one here while I have some computer time, to wish you a happy weekend my dears! My computer has bitten the proverbial dust and I’m going to have to bite the proverbial bullet, and buy a brand new one this weekend. And by “buy” I mean credit-ize, and thank the shiny stars above that Apple has such a lovely finance program (12 months same as cash, baby!)
So next week I’ll be back to normal and blogging from a super sporty new rig. In the mean time, please forgive me as I lag in my email and comment responses.
And now, let’s get with that attitude of gratitude!
Le Love List:
1. My Grandma’s Birthday
Today my grandma turned 85. Woo-hoo! I had an awesome talk with her and she is just so amazing – she was doing Abbot and Costello over the phone and telling me about how she used to perform the routine to put me to bed, ha! My granny is a hardcore Mormon and she left her home in Utah at the age of 18, and went to Hollywood where she got a gig in the Warner Brother’s animation studio. Hollywood in the 1940s . . . she has some incredible stories, man! What an inspiring woman.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA!!!
2. Bath Time with Baby
Oh how I’ve missed it, and not just because sponge baths don’t really achieve the same level of cleanliness. No, I’ve missed the fun of it! Waits and I used to play in the bath every morning, and now that his little cast is finally off, we’re back in business. *Splashy Splashy* to commence immediately!
3. The “Occupy Wall Street” Protests (all over the country)
I luuuuurve me some pointed and poignant civil disobedience, oh yes I do! And I wish I could be out there with them. I’m fondly recalling my old street-activist days of playing “protest-line chicken” with riot-geared cops, staging “die-ins” in busy intersections, and shutting down the freeway entrance to the UCSB campus (by sitting ourselves right down on the pavement). To everyone who has been out in the streets, MY HEART IS WITH YOU!
Also! Baby-sized rain boots, VEGAN MOFO, dill in my smoothies, the absolutely amazing comments on this post, long walks and good talks with real friends, the veggie plate I’m about to devour . . .
Alright guys, now it’s your turn – tell me what you’re loving this week!
My darlings, this happy little post will stay at the top of the page
all weekend until tomorrow because it’s MoFo time y’all, and I’m still POSTING EVERY DAY! However . . . stop by any time to leave your Love List, ask a question, or offer some feedback! Or if you’re new, please introduce yourself and say ‘Oi!’! This is your community, so get involved!
Have you ever taken part in a protest? Tell me about it! And please please – have a lovely weekend!
