if you're going to India put your hands UP.
if you got a hematoma put your hands UP.
if you're jumping out of a plane put your hands UP.
if you're knees always hurt put your... thumbs down.
needless to say, my hands are up and my thumbs are down. I will be taking a work and photo excursion to India in June; indoor soccer has made it back on to my activity list; skydiving will finally happen; age is conquering me; another trip to Napa is in order; my first sleepover in Alameda will be for my 2nd duathlon race; 30 miles of roads in Palo Alto will be met by my bicycle tires - and hopefully not my FACE; Europe will become a memory instead of just roads and buildings I see in movies; Pink Umbrella Productions is expanding to music videos; and my photography business is hitting its first official 'season'.
life is moving along and what can I do in the meantime? drink coffee, sweat it out, attend happy hour, and breathe.
in other news...
...taking showers and pumping gas are still on my WASTEFUL THINGS TO DO list.
...sometimes things that I love, should be free.
...sometimes things that I hate, should be really expensive. just to make me feel better about myself.
...sometimes one should just build a miniature lego castle and reside in it for the afternoon. even if the toy store tries to kick you out. they have no right. you're taking the lego castle for a test battle. with a test moat. and a test dragon. where's my sword? someone find me my sword. I deem myself Queen of the Latifah's. call me Queeny Perv. go fetch the Queen! oh wait - here I am.
