At a loss

Sometimes I wish I had kids, so then I could just post pictures of them when I don't know what to blog about. And people would just be awed by their beauty and that could be it. Of course, if I had kids then I wouldn't have the time or sanity to post regularly. Also there would be the religious and medical questions that would surely accompany a Virgin Birth. So yeah, that's probably not my answer.

At some point I'm sure I'll write a post about things I'm grateful for, but right now I'd rather talk about things I want.

I want this CD.

The music on it sounds absolutely beautiful, and I've loved "Song for a Winter's Night" for years. The cover makes me wonder when Sarah McLachlan decided to start dressing like Marilyn Monroe, and why she chose winter to start baring the skin, but whatever. Want it.

I want sushi. Lots of it. I want to eat sushi until I start growing gills. I especially want the fattening kind of sushi rolls that have been tempura-dipped and have cream cheese inside. Lucky for me, Cicada is going to come feast with me this weekend.

I want Ioan Gruffudd. As always. So handsome. Sigh . . .

I want feet that don't hurt. I don't know what the deal is, but I'm getting these awful things on my feet that are probably corns or something gross like that. It's getting to the point where none of my shoes are comfortable. Problem is, I won't have health insurance for at least another month. I bet I would be more motivated to exercise if my friggin' feet didn't hurt. So yeah. They're making me fat, too. Stupid feet.

(note: not my feet. I only have two, even if they are gross looking. And one of mine is a left foot.)

I want health insurance. And dental insurance. Because I now have funky toes which are causing obesity, a wart on my arm, and teeth that are about to fall out. Sounds hot, non? Like Ioan's going to pick me when I'm like this. It's times like these when I can get behind the socialized health care system.

I recommend laying off the tempura dipped sushi filled with cream cheese until you get insurance and your feet fixed. That might reduce the effects of limited exercise.

You would. And how is your exercise plan going?

What are the odds that you would post about the very same Christmas album as my sister in the same day? Blogging anomaly perhaps?

Sushi is good.

Feet are gross.

Opt for some excercise like piates.

Ioan Gruffudd? It's on.

If you do in fact have corns, try this method: http://www.ehow.com/how_2376_treat-corns.html

And I've heard duct tape works really well to get rid of warts.

I will vouch to say this is the best Christmas album I've heard in a long time. I love her In a Bleak Mid Winter? and What Child Is This? The Noel song is kind of weird. Stick to Noel and don't mix it with Mary Had A Little Baby.

Um, just so everyone knows, that was my dad I was being snotty to. I keep telling him to pick a screen name and he won't.

Sarita, I'll fight you for Ioan. You'll probably win because I am a wuss who doesn't exercise, but there will be fighting. :-) When I move up to L**** I'm going to start doing yoga & possibly Pilates at the rec center. Very excited about that!

Thanks, Lilcis! Do you mean putting duct tape over the wart and keeping it there until it disintigrates or do you mean using duct tape to wax off the wart in the manner of facial hair? Because that scares me. A lot.

Anon, you're making me want this album even more! Love the lovely Christmas music . . .

I was NOT being snotty.

I loved that snotty comment. I'm going to use it the next time someone sneers at me.

I don't know who that boy was, but he was cute!

kristen said... [reply]

Is that the guy from Bend it Like Beckam? That's who I thought of....

Nemesis said... [reply]

Dude. Kristen, that's Horatio Hornblower! Did living with me teach you nothing?? :-)

kristen said... [reply]

Oh my gosh, I see it now. I did not recognize him w/o the curly hair--and the uniform. He looks much better there. Sorry, I'm retarded.

But I also remember you had a thing for that hot soccer coach...

(BTW--that last comment was by me; grammar-typo-error stuff)

amyjane said... [reply]

Yeah...shame on me. I didn't know who he was either. Sean walked in and said, "oh, it's Horatio, duh." Speaking of tendencies...just kidding! He's just better at pop culture than me

I've never actually tried the duct tape over wart thing, but I'm assuming it means you leave the duct tape on until the wart disappears, maybe putting a new piece on every day. If you google it you'll get a bunch of suggestions.

I developed corns over the summer from really cute and otherwise comfortable sandles that I was wearing to work every day. The pumise stone and kerasal (www.kerasal.com) seemed to work to get rid of them.

Wintersong -- good album. Cheers :)
