Funny to me
Growing up in Hawai'i is quite different than growing up in a lot of places in the US. One big difference is the kind of desk accessories you need. See if you can spot the difference.
(Yes, they are always on her desk.)
Again, under the category, "It Caught My Eye": A front yard garden a few blocks from our house.
Awesome. Where do I get one of those?
I asked Kurt if he was teaching Harper to siphon gas. He said, "Well, you gotta teach them young to be prepared for the zombie apocalypse." True.
Two additional things:
1) If you are watching The Walking Dead, you'll know Carol would approve.
2) Kurt blew into one end of this hose like a trumpet and the sound came out near Harper and she looked a bit spooked and very nervous. It was kinda funny.
From my favorite time waster website: The Meta Picture.
Aside from all the pictures of Harper, I have not really been keeping up with the blogging. Mostly I post random links on Facebook and feel like that is enough. But it's not enough. I'm a writer, dammit, not a linker!
So as a warm up, here is all that I've been linking to:
The Meta Picture is my new uber-time-waster on the web. It never fails to make me lol. But I've got to watch my consumption of it as a 1/2 hour will suddenly be gone. I must treat it like dessert and eat my writing vegetables first.
Yesterday I got my hair did. August 1st was New Hair Day for me.
I email a friend every day with what we eat. We are working on eating more consciously and also working to lose weight. I have not been successful with the weight loss yet (more on that in a later post). The other day the first thing on her list was "two hard boiled eggs." And in my mind I said "make that three hard boiled-eggs!" What am I talking about? The genius that is the Marx Brothers, of course!
From somewhere I saw this and it made me happy:
We read the play in high school, Senior English, I think. (Not to be confused with Señor English-he was a piece of work, made good churros though.) I actually got our teacher into a qame of questions and it took him one or two times before he realized I was doing it. I amused myself a lot back then, clever girl that I was. (Am?)
Lastly, on a new favorite blog I read called "Julia's Bookbag" (no, not me, different Julia, but check out the blog for all things book, girl, and fun related!), Melissa linked to this HI-LARIOUS Pinterest Board called "My Imaginary Well-Dressed Toddler Daughter". OMG it is brilliant. Sample:
Okay. Good start. I'll get the hang of this again yet!
Nope. Can't explain. We wanted to take a picture of the VFX office team and this is what we came up with.
