ever notice on the ghost hunting shows what the “investigators” see is always out side of the camera range? why not wear a camera on your head or use one of those things they put on athletes to get a bird’s eye view. instead of us hearing you describe something and going “Whoa! Did you see that?” and cutting to commercial!


i have this other little fantasy of singing on Broadway. and not just any song but On My Own from Les Miserables. I have this song on my and when I’m alone in the car (or with the husband) i just belt it out!

I imagine spot lights on me and the crowd going insane because of my talent afterwards.

yes…i have a very rich imagination sometimes

i am trying to learn more French everyday. listening to podcasts and giving myself assignments but yet this language just eludes me. i just want to be able to speak French without sounding like an idiot.

i know its impossible but i imagine myself being a French writer even though i am A. not French and B. not a very good writer. but i envision my self living in a lofty apartment in Paris and writer in the morning as i drink coffee and spending my afternoons shopping for fresh cheese and bread. wearing scarfs. having fresh flowers in my kitchen everyday.

pretty much living out every romantic movie that takes place in France…

every once in awhile a song, movie or book will get stuck in my head. I’ll start thinking about it and want to either hear, watch, or read it.
so last night after dinner I was watching a movie and this song from years ago popped in and would not leave. so I started humming it and could not stop. finally i had to look it up online and was bummed to learn that i can not download it onto my ipod.
remember Shakespeare’s Sister? I loved them in high school and wanted to look like them but never could keep all the eye make-up from smearing.

for our anniversaries my husband and i go to a little sushi restaurant that we frequented when we were just friends. i love the place that isn’t too fancy but always fills me up. the husband calls the chefs by name and they always joke about seeing us the next day.
and on special days they make something special that isn’t on the menu. and today was especially great…

i have a problem with job interviews when it starts off with an orientation about the company and showing you how much fun everybody is having at their conventions and going through how much money you could be making. Especially when that “one-on-one” interview is all about how successful the current market is and how great the company is moving up the latter.
Call me old fashion but I like it when during an interview you feel nervous and you sit there trying to convince the person that you are right for the job and not have that person try to sell you there success.
I felt like I was dealing with a con-man….

trying to sleep. watching movies and true crime. just waiting for that familiar feeling of heaviness in my eyes.
each time I close my eyes and open them again the clock gets later and later.
I just wsnt to sleep.
of course blogging in bed does not help.

I realize that I don’t blog that often not out of laziness just out of nothing to say. I don’t have much to do there for not many stories to entertain writing down and sharing with the Internet world.
I have stories about my mother because she is always entertaining and sometimes there are some interesting characters I run into during my days in retail (like the lady who wants to sit in the front of the store and asks us to bring her a shirt, and she means every shirt in the store for her to inspect and think about buying, because I get paid enough to be her personal shopper,yeah…)
but over-all its very quiet in this box I live. Maybe that’s why Twitter and Facebook are so appealing. Posting a couple of sentences of what you are doing right now seems to generate more comments than blogging about my likes and dis-likes.
I’m not stopping this just thinking out loud..

patternsthere is a long list of wishes that i have but with my obsession of trying to make my old clothes look new (due to budget constraints) i really wish i knew how to sew.
watching re-runs of project runway help fuel this wish because i sit there and think i should be able to make myself a dress or a pair of pants or to even make an old top look new with a few cuts and stitches.
its late for new year resolutions but i think i will make one now – i will learn to sew (at least buy a sewing machine)

i am now completely obsessed with the Edies (big and little).

Edith Ewing Bouvier Beale and her daughter Edith Beale. the first cousins of jackie-o yet so much more than that. these two eccentric women are a story together of high society into poverty and notoriety. a lot is being said about them right now due to a new movie out, but my obsession came long before when wondering through the Internet and finding out about the lives of others lead me to them. I love eccentric people. always have. people going by another beat to another drum rather than trying to fit in and failing miserably.

they wanted more while they lived and in death they truly have accomplished that more…
