Since I have lately been on the whole letting go, choosing to be happy, and finding the silver lining in everything kick (and since having another blog to vent on) I'll now share with you some more of the happy things going on at the moment.
:: Once you want to take a picture of the crocodiles in the pond by the hotel bar - the ones you have been freaked out by for the past month - they are nowhere to be found and thus you don't have to hold your feet on the table legs because they're out there watching you (the crocks, not the table legs).
:: There are really nice people out there in the blogosphere who will listen to your worries even if they have never met you, and who will make you laugh by engaging in a very weird IM commenting on several different blogs. And they live 9 hours apart so that gives you the possibility of 24 hours of constant IM. No need for sleep. Unless one of them goes analog, which is the unthinkable.
:: I finally have a sister (no thanks to mom and dad, who only crowded the house with ice-hockey and basketball playing brothers, whom I love, but let's face it their girl talk is way below par).
:: The crocks are out, but appear to be asleep. Thank Zeus for a seriously warm day.
:: I seem to have fallen in love with photography, thanks to julochka and Erin (who is also helping me to reclaim rad as a usable word, just not in front of julochka - she is sensitive to it, and we want to be nice to the queen and the object of our worship. If you want to be in julochka's rock [warm stone] cult please sign up here and if you want to be in a more minor corn cult [with julochka as a prophet] sign up here).
:: The fact that I was unable to upload pictures yesterday resulted in the smile post , which in turn made some people's day. And I think that is just totally like rad, or possibly awesome (with parachute pants).
:: When I leave Zambia tomorrow the hubby will leave only 5 hours after me, and we won't have to be apart again for a couple of weeks.
:: I'm leaving for Europe on Thursday (I might have mentioned this before). And It will be summer in Europe, whereas in South Africa it is slowly getting to be winter.
:: A person I know in the blogosphere brought home a new baby and posted this picture which nearly made me cry. She writes in Finnish, but the photo says it all. Congratulations to her.
:: In a week I can get one of these dresses that I'll be wearing with pants though. I'm special.
:: My friends totally let me be a cat. What more can a person ask for?
:: There are fish in the pond by the hotel bar that could totally take the crocks if need be.
:: I love the word perpendicular. I don't know why. It's just so... perpendicular?
:: Even when suffering from a serious bout of blogger's block I can post incredible amounts of shit, and you all still read it. I love you people.
:: I just realized that I don't like any of the characters in my novel, and thus was able to rethink a lot of it. Who was it that said that if you don't like your characters, neither will your readers?
:: I love the fact that I'm not a perfectionist, because if I was I would be engaged in a potentially grueling googling process over the quote in the previous point. I'm glad I'm happily half-ass. Makes it easier to be lazy.
:: Someone just sat down and is now blocking the crocks. And he is wearing flop flops. Oh happy day.
:: I'm going to a wedding/garden party at Møns Klint next weekend. This place has got to be one of the most beautiful places on earth. julochka's blog has pics from there, but the whole happily half-ass makes me be too lazy to find them (perhaps she can toot her own horn in the comments?) and I also need to pee, so I'm just going to publish now. Sheesh, get off my back.
:: I'm still in love. With the hubby and the world.
:: The sun is shining, and it's warm.
Hope you have a really nice Sunday and get to eat lots of bonus cake and drink liters of coffee (this being my idea of a perfect Sunday). I'm off to hunt the crocks down with my camera. Now that they are out again and I have secured flip floppy bait.
