Oh, your comments from yesterday's post have been a joy to read! I've loved hearing from y'all. So much so I want MORE, please. I'm just needing a little bit of a break from talking about ME for awhile, and what better way to get all rejuvenated and ready to spin a good yarn or humiliate myself with another tale of my complete dunderheadedness than to hear about you?
None better. That's what.
So let's hear from ALL of you. (Ahem, lurkers!)
I'll even give you some thoughts to ponder as you come up with something to tell me about.
As Beanie-girl and I were racing (And she can win now, y'all. Quite easily. Puff, puff, puff.) around the gazebo in my teenytiny town square this morning (we were down there mailing out the books at the Post Office!), I saw a guy blow by behind the wheel of a black BMW, chugging a Red Bull®. And it reminded me that I've always wondered about Red Bull®. What's Red Bull® like? Have you ever had one? Do you like it? What does it DO for you? How does it make you feel? Am I wrong in my assessment that people who regularly drink Red Bull® (or similar beverages of that ilk. Isn't ilk a fun word? Ilk ilk ilk.) like to live fast and perhaps a little loose? Because the only person I've ever actually met who drank Red Bull® regularly is my landscaper, and frankly, although he's a nice enough guy, he scares me a little. HE! TALKS! LIKE! THIS! (only a great deal faster than I just typed that) and he paces around like his drawers are on fire, and his eyes are a little odd. They don't ever look fully focused, to me.
But that man can put in a shrub faster than I can eat a Twix® bar, and that's sayin' sumpm, people.
So, somebody give ol' Mama the 411 on Red Bull®, wouldja?
And then we'll switch gears. It seems like there're a lot of BLAHs going around lately. I hear y'all on that one. I wonder why everybody's BLAH at the same time? Is April National Blah Month? The Mumph of Harumph? I don't know, do you? But we need some cheering up, all of us, so please, tell me about a goal or a dream you have for yourself or your whole family. Doesn't have to be anything huge like building your own 15,000 square foot log cabin from scratch or climbing Mt. Everest or, you know, catching up on the laundry. Just one goal or dream that you have in your mind that you're really working toward right now and sincerely hope to reach or achieve.
I'll throw a couple of mine out there to get you thinking. When I started blogging in July 2007, I set a goal for myself of writing (or whatevering) well enough and being a "good enough" all around blogger to have a certain (hopefully realistic) number of subscribers by the end of my first year at FriedOkra.
I also have a dream of being a much more relaxed and happy mother to Peanut as a newborn than I was to Bean.
And Mom? Yes. One day I even dare hope to replace the $5.99 Post-It® brand stick-on paper blind on the window in my kitchen with an actual fabric treatment of some sort. Which will involve me making a DECISION. Which is not my forte right now. But a girl's gotta have a dream, people.
And lastly - what's the BEST thing that happened to you today? Me? I got Peanut's new little crib bedding in the mail. In a BIG ol' box. And his curtains, too. And it's all seriously cute! And that made me WAY happy.
Hmm. I still seem to be talking about me.
Okay, your turn:
- Red Bull®?
- Goal or Dream?
- Something happy that happened today?
- All three?
