Putting the fun back in dysfunctional.

If you fit in a group, there is a tumblr for you.
Mine is short people problems. I am 5 feet 2 and a half inches tall. That is 157 and a half centimetres tall.
When you are this tall, those half inches count A LOT.
Most of my shoes are size 5. Except my boots had to be a 7. Which was really funny because my son wears a 7 in shoes and I had to buy him a 5 in boots.
Anyway, I am small.
I learned to hem this week from Pinterest with the original hem. Search it!
I used to be an educational assistant in a grade 5/6 class. The girls were all hitting their growth spurts, and they all loved to come up to me and say “I’m taller than you Mrs. Devin.”
really? I hadn’t noticed. There were days I was afraid Administration would come into the room and wonder where the teacher was. *sigh*
What is your “problem”?
First thing first. At least I’m not the only one who is obsessive. (Eddie Redmayne again) I made it to page 40 or so. I don`t know if I could live with the minutiae of my life being recorded, people constantly watching what I was doing. I pick my nose too much.
This is one of my favorite videos in the world. I first saw it on Smart Bitches several years ago. Eddie Izzard, comedian, has a bit about the Death Star canteen illustrated with Lego stop motion video. (God I love stop motion, the amount of work one has to put in on those suckers).
Oh just watch it. NSFW- very strong language.
You need a tray, the food is HOT.
I know it’s pop. I know it’s a boy band. But I am in love with the song.
Alright confession. I love the video as well.
Totally hot when he kisses her and she’s totally into it and then he grabs the key, winks at her and takes off.
Also it makes me think of Gabriel, who is the hero of the book I am working on.
What can I say about Gabe? He’s self-assured, he’s sweet, he’s generous, but he has some moments of imperfection. He screwed it up with Shanna five years ago, and she’s not too willing to let him have a second try to break her heart.
I think if I watch this a few more times Nathan Sykes MAY invade my dreams. I’m attracted and repelled at the same time.
I keep imagining …
wearing a garter belt, thigh high stockings
long fingers stroking the soft skin exposed just above the stockings
gentle teasing fingers, touching
soft kisses, long kisses, wet kisses, seeking tongue, nipping teeth, soft lips,
gentle murmurs with romance “so beautiful”, “so sexy”, “can’t wait to touch, to taste, to see”
beach vacation, warm sands, hot nights, revealing clothing
of love, of lovers, of first times and next times and every time,
of young love, mature love,
uncontrolled lust and falling, falling, falling for you.
This is the culmination of a few things. First, my latest
crush obsession with Eddie Redmayne . Second, trying to figure out my next novel, which I’ve started and crashed about three different times. Third, subsequent daydreaming linked to said crush and writing attempts. Fourth, (I keep adding on) my best friend is in the middle of falling in love. She and her boyfriend as just disgustingly cute about it all!! And last, a post by fellow WANA classmate/friend Kristy K. James, Why Can’t Life be Like a A Love Song?
I was having a lovely daydream the other day about a life different from my own. A life where the mundane things weren’t so mundane, where I was just excited about things and my partner.
And then I started thinking about my husband. I don’t want a new partner. I want him, we have future plans together, which is going to be legendary. But, in the meanwhile, we have to live day to day life and it can get boring and we get entrenched in the exhaustion of two kids, jobs, bills, and the constant threat of clutter taking over our lives. (My husband is perfect for me. I’m keeping him).
But the mundane crap is really a drag.
So it hit me. Why not feel excited about the mundane things? Why not do things for him and be happy I’m making him happy, instead of feeling a bit resentful? Why not be more present with him and with our kids? Why not feel more sexy? Why not put on a bit of an effort for him? Why not feel excited when I see him?
Some people might consider it fake or false to force excitement. You can call it fake it til you make it. I don’t think it is false. After a decade, I can’t expect to feel spontaneous excitement and flooding in my lady bits when he walks in the room like when we were first together. Doesn’t mean it would be false to dwell on it and get excited about him.
A lot of people had the wrong idea about how love should feel. I know I had wrong ideas.
I thought for ages it be as Kristy K James says:
Am I way off base here, or are the feelings expressed in this song the samefeelings that most every adult in the world wants to feel? The newness of love? The uncertainty? The hope? The knowledge that this is the one?
Maybe it’s not the wrong idea of how we should feel, but the idea that we should feel that day in and day out without putting out any effort ourselves.
So, bring up the excitement in your life with what you have. Put out an effort to make the people around you feel the way you want to feel, don’t wait for them to make you happy.
Well, warning to anyone who doesn’t want to read about the dirty details of my menstrual cycle, here are some other things you might be interested in.
Somewhat funny, mostly truthful review of FSOG. http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/340987215
I was looking for visual inspiration for my hero (who is a red head) and I fell in love just a little with this picture. (Eddie Redmayne) http://oi52.tinypic.com/2d0nw3m.jpg
And I’m also in love with Damian Lewis who played Major/LT Winters in Band of Brothers. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0507073/
He is exactly my Gabriel in my book. And I’ve been totally distracted for what I was going to write about.
So, I’ve wanted a Diva Cup for like forever. I needed to order some supplements, which I do mostly from well.ca and I wanted to buy more than just one thing, so I was shopping around and decided, what the hell, I added the Diva Cup.
It’s intimidating when I first got it and the first several times of inserting it, especially getting the twist done properly so it opens.
Best period I”ve ever had. I’ve been a mostly pad girl for ages. I use cloth ones and the occasional sea sponge. But I’ve never really been happy with any method, it always felt unclean and squidy. And I’m really lazy. The Diva Cup can be worn for up to 12 hours, two to four washings a day and we are good to go.
so, there you go. That is your dose of too much information from Asrai this week.
It might be the way he can talk to a camera. It might be his smile.
It could be his work ethic. Or his dedication. Or that he just seems like a genuinely nice guy.
Craig Conroy was one of my favorite players for the Calgary Flames. He retired last year, but remains part of the team as special assistant to GM Jay Feaster, so my eyes can be happy during games.
