....because that's just what I do. :-) As I recently told my bestie dearest, I just love loving things. It makes life so fun and happy and good.
I watched The Unsinkable Molly Brown the other night, which made me extremely happy for several reasons, one being that I hadn't seen a musical in far too long, and two because old musicals always make me happy. AND THIS MAN'S VOICE. Oh my Atlanta. I've never heard anything so wonderful in all my born days. I've seriously been swooning over him for three days now.
It's too much. I'M MELTING.
Writing is so much fun. Duh. I will never tire of giving words to all the stories locked up inside my head. But editing is another story. I have said it many times, and I'll say it again-- there is no torment equal to chucking huge parts of your novel out the window. (Well, not literally 'out the window', although I was in such a mood the other day I might have if it hadn't been for all the snow on the ground). But ah well, it's all for the greater good! So I keep telling myself....
Right now I'm sitting smack-dab in the middle of the living room floor, listening to The Patriot soundtrack and swooning over the beauty and epicness thereof. I've been doing that a lot lately-- swooning. Not literally, of course. Just...figuratively. There are just so many wonderful things in life to swoon over, don't you find?
|Why yes, I can add random pictures of the Silverado boys anytime I please. It doesn't have to relate. We were talking about swooning, after all.|
I found this picture of Laura Osnes on pinterest, and it immediately made me think of Reese Witherspoon in Walk the Line. She looks so classy and retro-ish. I want to look just like that. AND THAT MICROPHONE. *swoons*
Guess what, you guys? It's time for Emma's annual CBD haul! Which means that Emma gets a catalog in the mail, promptly goes into crazy book-love mode and indulges her passion by picking out two or three books therein to order. In this case it was four. :-) Every year I make at least one order from CBD, usually somewhere around these bleak winter months, because that's when the urge hits and that's when the Spring catalog arrives. :-) This time I ordered a bunch of Ann H. Gabhart. Anybody familiar with her books? I'm actually not, but I love the looks of her novels so I decided to go out on a limb and take a chance. We'll see how that goes....;-P
I LOVE the postal service. Sometimes they do weird things, but when I think of how much I owe them.....GAAAHHHH. Heaps and gobs. Few things make me happier than receiving letters from my dear ocean friend. :-)
Can we just take a moment to appreciate how beautiful Gregory Peck is? Is that okay?
I could tell you about the movie I went to see the other night-- the one starring Tommy Lee Jones and called The Homesman-- but I'd better not, or else I might give you all nightmares and possibly ruin your lives with my expulsions of horror. All I have to say is, do not, I repeat DO NOT watch The Homesman. It will leave you feeling utterly shell-shocked and possibly disillusioned with life, and you may have difficulty getting your mouth closed.

Methinks that is enough randomness for now. Isn't it nice that I have a blog and can ramble on and on about all these things and expect y'all to read about them? What a nice arrangement this is. Enjoy the privilege of observing my crazy life. :-)
Have a good day, people! Keep smiling and singing Broadway songs! :-)
P.S. Oh yes, and this is my 200th post! Crazy, isn't it?
