Antebellum cerebellum*

August 28, 2010

My brain sneezed last week:

1. If I’d had a child, would I have been as neurotic as I am with Riley? I know for sure I’d feel the same kind of overwhelming love.

2. I’m never going to be neat.

3. Sometimes I wish I were Mormon. Not for the religion, though.

4. Men are bigger babies than women.

5. I get bored easily.

6. I had more patience for classic literature when I was younger.

7. Commercials get in the way of good programs.

8. Sometimes I think I’d like to live inside Grey’s Anatomy or Army Wives. I’d like to be Snow White, too, but that’s not in the cards, either.

9. Life is never simple.

10. I wish I had a live-in hair stylist and manicurist. Oh, and a cook for most nights, but not all. And most definitely a live-in housekeeper. I would wash my own clothes, though. I like doing that.

11. It seems harder to fit everything into a day in retirement than it was when I worked 1.5 jobs AND did all this.

12. Maybe I’m lazy.

13. Ok, I AM lazy.

14. I love my friends. Bigtime. And loyalty is EVERYTHING. Believe it.

15. My new/old brother-in-law is one of my favorite people and I sure am glad he’s back in my life.

16. I’m dying to see what my rockin’ nephew becomes.

17. There are too few current movies I care to see. Ever.

18. I should have become a doctor before I got old and hypochondriacal.

19. Marijuana should be legalized.

20. It’s hardly ever about you. Oh, I know. Hard to believe. But it isn’t.

21. I have no idea what’s on the other side of life and that drives me crazy.

(The inside of my brain is not a pretty place.)

*Cerebellum means “little brain.” Draw your own conclusion.

    I love your brain! 🙂

    I wish we could sit down and drink a bottle of really, really good wine and eat amazing fresh made cheeses with sun dried tomato artisan bread and olive bread.

    We would have a blast telling our crazy stories and “girl I am sure we have lots of them.” Keep on truckin in the big old universe Carol.

    Thanks for all the blogs I really enjoy them and all the effort you put into them each day.

    Oh we can honey and we are planning on it! This is part of a practice that I do very rarely…creating a mystery about myself. I never do that so I am now officially done.

    I am Finleigh’s care giver! You met Finleigh through her dog blog when I was in L.A. county this summer.

    Now you know who I am. 🙂

    I think it was odd but serendipitous that I wrote about hand crafted cheeses…they are my favs and so are Artisan breads although I am high protein low carb I can kick the diet for bread like this!


  3. Thanks, anon! OMG I had some great cheeese in Seattle, aged for years, first time I’d had “designer” cheese and it was great. I’ve also had great fresh made cheeses in Italy.mmmm

    Yes, stories galore and no kidding! You KNOW I’m dying to know you in real time! One of my closet friends here I met through my blog.

    I know you like being anon but don’t know why we can’t sit down one day–the universe is my world!

    But of course you’d have to say where you were. Meanwhile, so glad you’re here!

  4. I’m salivating reading these comments. Loved the post! Honey, cheese, bread, wine…heaven especially when in Italy.
