Good morning campers...
yes, I have just decided as I type this that I am going to pretend that this is summer camp (in my brain), I never went to summer camp but always wanted to....I had these sill fantasies of becoming best friends with my bunk mates, and during a dance with the boys camp across the lake (because you know there is always a boys camp across the lake) I would have my first kiss.
None of it happened...but right now for some reason I wish I had some camp stories to tell...well ones that happened to me, not the girls in the original "Parent Trap" movie.
wow...I have just begun to write and all ready I am all over the place.
First, I really need to thank you all for putting up with the "cock talk" of yesterday, really it means a lot, and I am glad you all loved (and were haunted by) the term "flailing cock" as much as you were...sadly my bubs and I actually use that phrase more that we probably should...we're grownups after all...we should start talking proper...like Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady.
So....the drowsy summer is beginning to really set in for me....sales have slowed completely in the past two weeks and all I want to do is read...
as you know I have been on a total historical fiction bender as of late, and I actually just finished The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette, which was beautiful....after that I moved onto The Clue in the Crumbling Wall....it's a Nancy Drew book I got at the used book store down the street, it is the same vintage of the ones I read when I was a kid...so it was amazing to re-read the book...it's so adorable, and really I forgot how many times during mystery solving that Nancy quite literally takes a break to eat cookies or a cake.
I have decided to collect all the Nancy Drew books, but they have to be the vintage of my childhood books...I already have managed on Ebay to score a bunch of them....I will be getting one duplicate book though so if any of you want it...just let me know, if there is a demand I will will give it away raffle style.
You see...I am a book person, well, strike that...I am a reader, completely voracious, and for a few years when we had the comic shop I had no time to just sit and read to my hearts content...but now I have a bit more time...and I love it, nothing gives me more joy than falling into a world or words.
So in honor of that, I made this piece called "I Am Too Shy", it is available in my etsy shop....I can just imagine in a library or above a bookcase or even in a little girls room...
books are dreamy...
ok, enough of that....tomorrow is letters to celebrities day but...it is also the 4th of July so I amd not sure if I am going to bother with a letter or not....I am assuming that many of you will actually be out and about enjoying a day off...I am planning on sleeping in with my bubs and then going to see the Transformers movie with our friend Clemencia....and Clem....if you are reading this, bring cookies, I am already starving.
Happy 4th of July everyone....or as I like to call it in my neighborhood..."Wait was that a firework or a gunshot" day.
