I have a bed to hop into & a book to read.
But I wanted to mention what I got for Christmas before it became Easter.
I DiD NoT get this Adorable Puppy that my Ex-Husband Gumby is holding & who is sitting rather unhygienically on my kitchen island, which in case you were wondering is made of some green stone that was popular during the Great Depression.
You also may be wondering if my ex-husband is the same as Mr. Ex-Middleaged. Sadly no.
Gumby is my daughter's dad. He is NOT Mr. Ex-Middleaged.
Gumby talks to me. And in fact stayed at my apartment with my daughter & I on Christmas nite.
Mr. Ex-Middleaged doesn't talk to me. The only contact I have with him is through my lawyer. I am v. sad about this. It's as if I'm living this part of my life in a Really Hateful & Hurtful Parallel Universe.
I'm sure at least some of you are wondering what I did to Mr. Ex-Middleaged to make him not speak to me.
The truth is, I don't know.
I think that I was just Old Cow. And New Cow is more alluring. Maybe.
Instead, I'll just move onto Point No. 2. Oh dear, I didn't tell you what I got for Christmas.
I can't be bothered telling you now. I'll just leave it up to your imagination.
3. This is a Genuine Point. Note the necklace with a tiny Buddha that I've wound around my wrist a few times.
I'm hoping to start a New Trend. Except that it keeps on getting caught on things. But who cares about Practicalities when Beauty is at stake.
4. Lastly, this is what I wore today. I bought it early last year when I was still buying New Clothes. It was $6.95 at a Cheap Landfill Shop which fortunately is No More. I was going to Give It The Chop but before I did, I decided to give it One More Go.
When I put it on this morning, I was pleasantly surprised. This is Almost Resort Wear, I said to myself.
Wrong. It looks like an Indonesian Tablecloth.
5. Lastly lastly, I have soo much more to say & I'm going to say it in about sixty seconds..........
I read in the Huffington Post today that Arianna is challenging all the Women of America to make Sleep their New Year's Resolution. She thinks that the WoA are so busy being busy & caring etc. that they don't sleep enough.
Arianna herself is aiming for about eight hours a night which she thinks is the optimum amount for Creativity & General Wonderfulness.
I just want to tell Arianna that Sleep is Not that Simple. Particularly as we get older.
But it's my bedtime now so I can't tell her.
