Is It Even Possible



Bon Jour

ok, today is off to a rocky start already....today was supposed to be the first day in a long series of days that will bring about "the new me"....

get up early, exercise, blog, read some internet lovelies and then get to creating....so far all I have accomplishes is...

wake up late, drink coffee, and as you can tell, I have started to blog. Not exactly as I had planned, after all I set the alarm for 7:00am and here it is 8:10, and I just dragged myself out of bed.

gosh, I am so not a morning person.

You see, Aimee from Jewelstreet and I vowed that we would begin an exercise routine this week...nothing too over the top, just 3 days as week at first. I even vowed that I would write about it in my blog, thus facing public humiliation if I fail...jeesh, and here I am already falling short of said goal.

Though, please note darling ones that once I get off the computer this morning I am heading over to the stationary bike and I am going to peddle my butt off for a half hour while listening to Justin Timberlake.

You see, I don't want to get all crazy and skinny, I just want to be a better version of me, perhaps one that can still fit into my favorite dress of all time. You see, I bought this dress 3 years ago one of the times I was coming out to Columbus to visit my bubs, I wore it when we went to the Cabaret Theater...at the time, it looked as though it were made for me and my body...now, well, I can't really zip the thing.

I know I would probably never wear the dress again, as it is a bit sexy and well there is the cleavage factor, I don't want to look like some "Slutty McBigBoobs" or something...I just want to be able to zip it.

ok, another topic as this one is boring...even to me.

I would like you all to know as well that this morning marks my 100th blog post, I know some of you reading this are over at myspace or typepad and it is not my 100th there, but it is here at blogger....

I honestly can't believe I have made it to 100, I have to say I used to hate blogging, now I love it, and it is such a part of my day, I feel a little cranky withou it during the weekends, but the days off are good for me, hell...that is how you all ger to read the high quality wit that provide for each morning.

How was everyone's weekends? As you know, Friday Night my bubs and I were heading to a "New Metal" (as in music, not jewelry) show, I have to say I was pleasantly surprised.

no, not really with the music, as it is not my thing, but with the location. We were at a place called CBR's in the Brewery District of downtown Columbus, OH.

As we were walking down the street to the club we saw in the distance what appeared to be a 30 foot replica of the Eiffel Tower, as we got closer....we were right, there it was.

I have no idea why it was there, and I am just kicking myself for not having my camera with me for the fantastic photo opportunity, but we will go back and I will bring the camera...it will be brilliant.

Once inside the club I was pleased that it had met my criteria for being a fantastic palce...those being.

1- dim lights
2 - a bartender that knows how to make a good drink
3- kick ass chandeliers

YES, chandeliers....what more do you really need?

The night was fun, and then Saturday we just chilled at the house after my guy got out of work before we had to head out in the cold to get the "mean cheese"....

who by the way...I believe to be an old man trapped in a little meany cheesy body...it all makes sense, the signs are all there, I plan to a "study" on this next weekend when we have her...stay tuned.

Hmmmm, let me see, I thought there was a lot more to tell you, I know I am forgetting a ton of stuff....

oh, I am looking for a new artist to illustrate my comic book "Stiletto Heights", I am willing to pay (not a lot as you know....I am poor), so please if anyone knows or thinks they know someone who might be interested please let me know.

I would love it if they met the following criteria

1- not insane
2- not involved in a religious cult
3- did not have a history of abusing women
4- could draw
5- did not have "issues" with working with a woman.

ok that is out of the way...oh, I also wanted to talk about how I finally saw "Little Miss Sunshine"...but that will take an entire post, as I want to do a little compare and contrast with my family and the movie (this is all for you Vanessa, I know how much you enjoy hearing about my family).

I did get to work a littl this weekend too, in between metal shows, naps, and the mean cheese, I made this art card called "A Little Bit of Your Words in My Head" and I made it while totally obsessing over Damien Rice....sigh.....

it is available for sale in my etsy shop.

lol. Well, I have exercised but not blogged. Lovely dress!

Congratulations on your 100th post! I wish we had a place that had chandeliers and a bartender that could actually make a drink. Can't wait to see your compare and contrast on Miss Potter and your family.

Oh my darling Jenn! That dress is just made to have a big red belt around it! Beautiful and oh so chic. I am having a 'new me' day too - may write about it in my blog later. The club sounds wonderful. I once went to a nightclub in Barlcelon that was an old theatre and was stunning - chandeliers and velvety red walls with lots of gold. Except I spoiled the mood by doing a dying swan down the stairs and landing in a completly unglamorous heap at the bottom (with barley an alcholic drink in me).

I still haven't seen Little Miss..... shall have to hire the DVD me thinks. Have a wonderful creative 'new you' day! x

PS I think I shall start reading and commenting on your typepad account as this new fangled blogger type thing is a pain to sign into. See you there!

I could have written the first part of that post. Today is to be the first day of the "new me" too. I plan to yoga at 11:30 so we will see if that actually takes place. Fingers crossed. Oh how I abhor exercise. :( Your reason is also the same as mine... I don't want to be uber-skinny or buff either. Rather, I want to be the best version of me that I can be. That is the goal.

I'm so glad that you had a nice weekend. I would have LOVED to seen a pic of the Eiffel Tower replica. Beautiful new pieces too!

Recy. :)

P.S. CONGRATS on 100 posts!

I am fascinated with your mom, your granny, the mean cheese, and you especially. But those other three seem whacky woo!!! And I love it!! The dress is lovely, but, no dress can make me get up early and work-out. I used to be a mad workout aholic and one day woke up a different person. I wanted to be happy. Not obssessed. Not saying you will be obssessed. Just saying, it is good to be healthy, but. what the hell am I talking about. All I know about is glitter and paint. Eiffel Tower? You should put on that dress and climb it and have the bubs take some pics. That would be so interesting? I am weird right now. I think you are the bestest ever!!! Keep an eye out for the mail.
