Day Dreaming…

April 27th, 2010

  • that people will stop sending me viral videos. I don’t want to watch a cat eat curry or a wedding party I don’t know dance downthe aisle. I guess they’re cute, but viral videos seem like digital styrofoam peanuts to fill in the empty spaces in the brain.
  • that America will end the era of mean-girl legislation. Arizona, WTF?
  • that the terminal I fly into will be the terminal I fly out of.
  • that Thomas Jefferson will be put back into Texas textbooks.
  • that I will spend a night without sleep aids
  • that companies will stop using those weird real people turned into cartoons in their ads. They give me the creeps.
  • that Sarah Palin will stop talking in that high-register voice that is supposed to be down-home Cracker Barrel ¬†folksy and appeal to me and you.
  • that I could break up with Comcast.

      * that I’d find one or more items of clothing that I really love to wear
      * that the Republican party would cease pandering to misogynists, and whack jobs.
      * that I can find a way to be involved in my community but not embroiled in organization politics
      * that I set a goal, any goal, and meet it.

      You write the best lists. Do you read Hula 70? She’s a list girl too. You’ll adore her lists… I’m sure of it.

      +that my husband heals and thrives again

      + that I had a little more time to myself (this is my first downtime in a week and I came here first for rejuvenation: Thanks Nikki!)

      +that the oil slick will be stopped and my coastline will be spared.

      +that my old dog will pass away without me having to play Dr. Kavorkian.

      +and I’ll jump on the political line too and just wish that people would quit being reactionary to inconsequential things that are really just poorly disguised distractions {thanks fox news} and learn to work together to create positive change. Hell- how about just working together. I’ll take that.

    5. You could definitely see your enthusiasm in the paintings you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe. Always follow your heart.
