Because bloodlossgirl Said To:

June 20th, 2006 (12:40 am)

Feeling a little cosmically Back to the Drawing Board myself lately.
It'll all be fine. It'll be fine for you too. *hug*

In the meantime: write down a list of what you really want right now.
Small things. Big things. Medium-sized things.

- I want to buy a sewing machine from that man who runs the shop across from
Guerros on South Congress. He refurbishes old ones, the GOOD ones...the simple
ones that I learned on when I was little. His store has been there since I was little!
Last time I spoke with him he was 85, and that was a few years ago. I think he'll be
around for awhile--he confessed to having a girlfriend, young thing in her 50's that
kept him going. She showed up while I was there chatting with him in the back, and
gave me the STINK EYE... Yup. I want a sewing machine. From HIM.

- I want a room, to put my sewing machine! *laughs* A room with my Ginger stuff in it,
a room where my mirror can hang over my Blinky Box and I can write or sew or learn
stuff. A study.

- I want to finish my English degree. I want a piece of paper that says I FINISHED. I
want to hang it in my little room where my Ginger stuff is. I want to go on afterwards,
and get my MFA in Creative Writing. I want to teach High School English in Austin TX.

- I want allergy shots. I want a health plan. I want to suss out all the technology now
available to the FUR-CHALLENGED.

- I want to wake up every morning next to Ben. Well, at least pass him, smooch him,
and send him on his way... HE wakes up when I go to bed. I got to work when he walks
out of the office. Somewhere in there, there must be an overlap... Days off when I can
roll over and flop my arm across him while he snores. If we are under the same roof,
my chances of encountering him increase IMMENSELY. *grin*

- I want a hair cut. Pixie with spit curls.

- I want one of those swingy skirts all the gals are wearing these days. Yes. I
want more skirts in my life. Bruised knees or no, this little Tom-Boy wants more skirts.

- I want to see my FAMILY!!! It has been MONTHS since I laid eyes on my Mother and
Father and Brother and Sister-N-Law and Nephew. I miss them. I want to play Scrabble
with Pop. I want to go along on one of Mom's adventures-in-saving-the-world. Watch
her in action, at the shelter they maintain and run. See another face that's happy my
Mom is who she is, and does what she does. I miss my Family.

- Okay, I want to BEAT Pop at Scrabble... *heh*

- I want to challenge my Brother the "CHEF" over kitchen rights, HAH! I still can kick his
ass at Pie Crust!!!! So-There, Chef-Boy! Your little waitress big sister may not have
your degree--but she has a verrrrrrrrry Flakey Crust. *giggles* (he hates it that I am
better at pies than he is--I take it where I can get it, he's brilliant.)

- I want to thank everyone who has held their ground beside me, even when I was
horrid and should have been smacked. ^_^

- I want a new Fan. Mine died last night, and it's TOO quiet in here!!!
(Ben, can we got to FRY's this weekend??? *laughing*)


Thanks H--I needed that.

I'm on it, Sister...
You are still my favourite Witch-Doctor, even though you HATE
me calling you that.

::ducks the swing::


Love ya, Shirley.

There are some things on that list I can certainly get behind. (but seriously, you ain't never gonna get your pop at scrabble - all the rest are doable, but that one, I ain't holding my breath)
