my brother calls me sister

I said this once to a friend and she fell out laughing. I couldn't figure why it was so funny, I mean he doesn't call me by name he has always called me "sister" shortened over time to "sis". How it all began I'm not sure but probably along the lines of "go over by your sister" or "go see your sister" the kid probably just plain thought it was my name.

whatever the reason, happy 39th birthday to my little [but very big] brother.
sister loves you.

travel back in time

Sunset Blvd ala 1964

ok, maybe just this

My last pair of glasses were a bust. Spent a zillion bucks and hated them. I'm back to my old pair. I'm due this year for a new frame lens combo but going to try on glasses is probably last on my list right now.

I just read about these guys you know about Warby Parker glasses? 95 bucks.

here's the scoop, pick out 5 pairs they send them to your house with a prepaid return label. get your geek on and pick out your best pair. return, send in your RX info. I'm thinking Clark Kent for my next batch. whammo. chic glasses for under a million. rocket science I realize.

know what else? one-for-one buy one, they donate one [like Toms] everyone wins.

I think Chris or I will try this out for sure. I'll let you know how it goes.

kiddies, I'll be out for a while. That kidney thing - finally having it operated on next week and hopefully for the last time. 2011 is the year I come back, kick bootie and feel good while doing it because we all know I kick bootie anyway.

see you in a couple of weeks.

have you been over to Pinerest yet? Let me distract you with 5 zillion pretty pictures [not just mine - everyone's really]

One day I will own a home

One day I will own a home. I might even wish for a studio and a little piece of green in the back yard. I dream sometimes that I can paint my walls whatever color I might like them to be and that if I bought new furniture I wouldn't have to worry that someday when I moved it might not work in my new place. Ah the life of a renter...

but one day when I own a home? I will get to pick out good numbers. You know how I'm a type slut - I don't have to mention it again.

dream collaboration Heath Ceramics and House Industries. forty-five bucks a piece
