Gratitude for….HOUDINI EYES..

HAMMOCKS. Is there anything more FREEING or BLISSFUL then floating freely in a swinging sleeve while lying horizontal?? Oh how I miss the hammock to which I used to swing while staring up at the ancient pine trees swaying in the wind…

HOWEVER, one may not be so grateful should they have to share this magnificent “freedom sling” with an a-hole who has no concept of the importance of appropriate distribution of mass…therefore sending you both into an IMMEDIATE upturned agony.

INDEX CARDS.  Specifically of the RULED.  Because I experienced the absolute horror of unwrapping a pack of “GASP” ..UNRULED index cards of which I was to employ for studying purposes. And OOOh the AGONY!! The RULED cards already have the lines, the “direction” of where to write my notes.  But the “unruled”..whaaa?? You mean I have to just write my notes, in a crooked line??? No lines to keep me straight?? How will I EVER survive without the RULES?????

hmmmmm…..

HOUDINI EYES. A term coined by my Father.  Enduring macular degeneration, he is technically “blind” but can still see things in his periphery, but is inconsistent, and as he describes “now you see it…now you don’t”!!!

PROSECCO PONG. I JUST learned of this BRILLIANT PHENOMENON while overhearing an episode of “Live with Kelly and Ryan” this AM, when Carson Kressler presented on Oscar Party Planning:

At the mention of “Prosecco Pong” my head nearly exploded.

WHY WHY WHY have I never thought of this before???? Oh My THIS.MAN.IS.GENIUS…!!! A game + bubbly which requires you to DRINK MORE BUBBLY????? DUHHHH!!!!! And YES..I will most CERTAINLY drink the Prosecco even after the ping pong ball lands in it… 🙂

FRAISER. Oh what a RIDICULOUS sitcom. But also a spin off from my  beloved “CHEERS”.  And to hear my dad’s laughter at the comical retort…oh…is music to my ears… 🙂

And here’s hoping that YOU TOO..my beloveds..will enjoy:

  1. A hammock, or some version of “swinging freedom”..
  2. Liberation from the “ruled” lines..
  3. PROSECCO PONG!! JUST.MAKE.THIS.HAPPEN.PEOPLE!!!!
  4. HOUDINI EYES …because perhaps we are better off not seeing EVERY.LITTLE.THING…
  5. The joy of the hearing the laughter from someone you LOVE with all of your heart….

Until next time my loves…
