Yesterday was a snow day and it was AWESOME.
I don’t care how old I get, there is nothing more exciting than
school work being cancelled. I turned off all of my alarms, left my heavy curtains open and let the magic of the sun wake me up naturally. A nutritious breakfast, leaisurely compiling my writing assignments (as opposed to my usual pre-sunrise rush to type intelligently), and mid-afternoon exercise followed by a trip to IKEA filled the hours after that.
It’s official. I have a perfect life.
Well, I had a perfect yesterday. Today I’m back to the grind in my muted-color cubicle waiting for the hours to pass me by. Luckily the universe invented gchat, because it provides me with moments like this:
BFF: MFK: The Colin Firth Edition – Jamie from Love Actually, Mark Darcy from (If you don’t know we can’t be friends), Johannes Vermeer from Girl With a Pearl EaringKim: Marry: Jamie from Love Actually, F*ck: Mr. Darcy, Kill VermeerBFF: TOTALLY!
- Seth Rogen (The Green Hornet)
- Ryan Reynolds (Green Lantern)
- Eric Bana (Hulk)
I know this has nothing to do with what I usually blog about, but it just made me so happy to play this today that I had to share. It’s the simple things.
When I was a little girl I would obsessively play MASH with my friends; like somehow it was some sort of soothsaying ritual that would deem me worthy of a life of mansion living or squallerly shackdom.
If my seven year old self could see the life I’m living now she might have a temper tantrum: I’m not a famous actress/dancer/model/veterinarian; I am not currently married to Jordan Knight; and I don’t have a mansion or a horse–I’m basically a failure by all things her standards. Of course if I still wanted the life I fantasized about in 2nd grade I’d technically be considered a crazy dog lady with 7 kids, rocking fan bangs, and floral mini-skirts all the time. There was even a moment in kindergarten when I distinctly remember asking my mother to let me get a mullet. Thank you mom for not letting that happen.
All in all, I’m glad that my ideal standard of living changed a bit. But hell, if anyone’s up for a game of MASH, I’m totally down.
