“Happy girls are the prettiest.”
– Audrey Hepburn
Thank you all so much for your prayers and thoughts. My mother-in-law, Honey was able to go home with Silver Fox, and is now back to her sparkly nail ways!
Of course, this means I’m going to be completely on her ass about her health, even more so than before.
Let me tell you, Precious Readers, I may be out of shape, but I focus a lot of my attention to eating as healthy as possible. A job in data entry in my Daily Life for 9+ hours a day wreaks havoc on my own ass, and I’m about to kick Pilot and my own to get us up and moving.
It’s been a while since I did any book reviews or spoken about some of my favorite authors. It might shock you to learn, I haven’t read much lately. Life has been so hectic with work, I’ve spent more time with my eyes on the boob tube, rather than my nose in a book.
There’s a new post brewing in my brain that will need more time to come into fruition, and I’m excited to explore the topic with you. However, for now I think I’ll just leave you in suspense until next time.
Horrible of me, I know.
This weekend, I’m attending a concert with some gal pals. The band Ivan and Alyosha is an amazing band that started here in Washington. One of the band members is a former high-school classmate of mine, and a bunch of my “past” pals are joining me, one of which is Obi-One-Pin-Obi. The other two, I believe I’ll introduce to you as Glamazon and Tenderheart.
Glam is someone I’ve known almost as long as Obi. Even though the three of us were in school at the same time together, Glam and I became friends a little bit later in life.
I like to call Glam the more “Authentic Asian” between the two of us. Her family actually moved here from South Korea, while she was born in the good ol’ US of A. She and her family actually go back to South Korea on a fairly regular basis.
Well, as much as international travel can be considered “regular,” I suppose.
Don’t let the name fool you. Glam is humble, fun and super spunky, but if you don’t watch out, she’ll get you with a zinger faster than my dad used to joke about “saber-toothed crotch crickets.”
I picked the name Glamazon (but for the most part, we’ll refer to her as Glam) because she is super fashionable and always in the know of what’s trendy. Might have to do with her job. She actually works for a major company in Seattle. I won’t post the actual name of the company, but let’s just say it rhymes with her nickname.
Tenderheart is someone I met at CWU. I don’t quite remember how we met, but I’m sure she remembers. She had a few years in college on me, as she had difficulty deciding the right path for herself. Now she’s an ultrasound operator and living the exciting life of the medical field. The oldest of six kids, she’s responsible, considerate and completely selfless with everything she does. The fact that Tenderheart ended up in the medical field doesn’t really surprise me.
I’m excited to see the concert this weekend and hang out with my gal pals. It was touch-and-go for a while with Honey in the hospital before. Let me just say, Pilot, Silver Fox, Joker, Hoops and all the rest are exuding a relief I can sense for miles.
If you want to try to find me, I’ll be at Showbox at the Market tomorrow for their 8pm concert.
Ooh! I like this! It’s a little like “Where’s Waldo?” but without the horrible, unflattering stripes!
Tickets are still available! They’re only $20 bucks!
Which is great for a broke-ass like me!
