I would just like to say that I have an addictive personality. I always have.
First recollection of acknowledging I had a problem: The Babysitters Club. Yes, my ambition was to own every volume of those celebrated literary works, and to somehow win the prize of flying to New York City to meet Ann M. Martin. My brother-in-law Steve N. informed me a couple of years ago that those are formula books written by several authors. I know that is a vicious lie!
Then came The Beatles. Go ahead, just ask me a factoid. And I want you to know, there is not one situation in life that a Beatles song can not be applied to, I am here to testify to that fact. I was so in love with George, I mean, a 40 year age difference is so very trivial where love is involved.
Drama. Still feel pretty passionate about it.
My favorite wish-he-was-my-twin-brother Brad and I saw "The Phantom Menace" 9 (or maybe 11, I will have to refer to my journal) times in the theaters between our sophomore and junior years of high school.
And infamously; NSync. Yes, I hold my head up high when reminded of my teenage bedroom walls. just because it was covered in pictures of Lance Bass, I mean, come on ... how was I to know he was playing for the other team? Unfortunately for my teenage self, but to the great amusement of my husband and family, I was oblivious to what side of the team almost ALL my teenage crushes were playing on. But that's another story. And yes, I really really loved NSync.
IT'S A DANG GOOD THING I NEVER DECIDED TO GET DRUNK, STONED, PSYCHADELIC, OR COMMUNIST. I'd be a goner by now.
But I still suffer symptoms of addiction, most notably the last year and a half as a Twilight fan. I am here to say that I really, really love Twilight, and I was not dissapointed in the movie. Oh, no. How could I be when it meant staring at Edward for two hours? I ask you. So it is with great joy that i read today on stepheniemeyer.com that the actor playing Jacob will still be Jacob in New Moon. That made me happy. And dangit, I am ready for some happiness on a purely trivial level!!! So I wanted to share this happiness with any of you who might also have a Twilight problem. And for those of you who are Twilight-free, I did insert the disclaimer about being both a dork and an addict. And why are you not reading Twilight?!?
Tonight for Young Women's we are singing at a rest home. And the Beehives are in charge and not me, so HOOORAH! How come that always seem scary to young folk and I admit, even to older but not mature folk such as myself? As I told one of my girls on Sunday, if we're lucky, we're all gonna be old someday. And we're gonna want jittery young people to come and sing to us the classics from our day! In 60 years could the old classics be... NSync? (See how I tied that in there)? Anyhow, I do realize I am now talking about nothing, but I'm enjoying the visit.
I love you all.
Good day. I said, Good day! (For all you Fez fan's out there.)
*I did want to say thank you so much to all of you for your kind words to me about my special Granny. Her funeral was very nice and we drank lots of coke! Thanks for your friendship and support.*
