Holidays bedevil blogging.
I know tomorrow is Easter and I’m
expected planning to do something thematic for it and that’s all well and good but doing so throws my schedule off kilter. However, as Nietzsche once said, “That which does not kill us makes us stronger,” so today, I forge on and give you a series of randomosity as well as the Week in Review pic because I’m reserving the big guns for tomorrow.
1. This month, it seems a handful of people had a bit of a struggle with the T3 linkup. Well, perhaps I’m being hyper sensitive or overly solicitous. I do so like to please people and want them to feel comfortable and engaged (it’s the teacher in me). And maybe it’s just me, projecting my issues onto others. So perhaps I should just leave well enough alone and offer the linkup as is and allow folks to interpret/join in as they see fit.
2. Dirty hair photographs so much nicer and easier than clean hair.
3. I complain ad nauseam about the Fontana winds but they actually provide that je ne sais quoi element that livens up my photo shoots. Without it, my poses feel flat and contrived, as this upcoming week’s pics will sadly attest.
4. Sometimes procrastination reaps its own rewards. Remind me not to try to take photos in the morning. The light is awful and there’s no shade except for the front porch and posing on my front porch for all the world to see makes for a very awkward hour.
5. Getting on the treadmill after a good meal is a terrific way of preventing that fluffy feeling.
6. Mad Hunting for floral maxi dresses this week resulted in the purchase of 8 dresses, none of which sported a floral print at all. Thankfully, I only kept two.
7. Thank you, Etiwanda Unified School District, for re-instituting the bus program; it makes picking up my kids from school that much easier since I have to deal with far less traffic.
8. Skirt hangers may just be the devil in disguise: on one hand, it’s freed up tons of space in my closet. On the other hand, it’s freed up tons of space in my closet. Uh-oh…
9. When you marathon Sherlock, you run the risk of banging your head repeatedly at the end of it all, bemoaning loudly the unfairness of the universe. Why are there 38 episodes of Honey Boo Boo but only 9 episodes of Sherlock?! Oh, the humanity!
10. When you marathon Suits, you run the risk of spotting tropes that, taken individually are highly dramatic, but seen back to back become sheer comedy. Do lawyers really toss that many manila folders and binder-clipped papers at each other like white collar frisbee players?
