Five Fab Friday – (5 things I’m grateful for)


  1. That nobody really cares that its not Friday
  2. Elmer’s glue. This puddle of white goo gave me endless hours as a child. Although I never stepped out of my comfort zone to actually eat it as some of my contemporaries were fond of doing at the time I did love lathering it on the palm of my hand, waiting for it to dry, and then peeling it off like an extra layer of skin. We use to collect these pre-body-snatcher creations in our pencil boxes. And yes, as an adult in retrospect I do find this gross. But at the time . . . J
  3. Silly putty and Sunday comics. Pressing down that pink creation and pulling up a mirror image of Garfield. Good times. Good times.
  4. Red toenail polish. This was an acquired taste I must admit. I’ve always grossed out by toes in general (in my opinion they are hideous add-ons). To date I’m slightly queasy but I can walk beside a friend or neighbor in sandals and resist the urge to find a fireman’s axe to remedy the creation.
  5. Bling-bling. I love my bling-bling and living in Houston Texas allows me to fit right in. We love our bling from rhinestones on flip-flops to shiny dresses at a Jeans and Jewels gala event.
  6. I love being able to do whatever I want as an adult, including ignoring the “five” rule in my own title.

  1. For passing time I love the front porch. I like to sit there and watch the people walk there dog, jog. or the kids ride their bike. I smoke cigarets so I spend some time on the porch looking at the trees and watching the leaves fall seeing the first star come out the airplanes fly over and the clouds move watching a storm coming closer and closer. I love the stares at night and look for the shooting stares and the stares that travel across the sky at warp speeds. I love the front porch and seeing the brids and all the wonders in the world.

  2. Haha, love that you kept the Elmer’s glue skin in your pencil box! At least I had the decency to cast aside the skin with embarrassment, hoping no one had seen me do that gloriously satisfying school supply ritual. 😉 Also, I LOVE you in bling bling. It looks so good on you and is definitely Texan!
