She has my flair for style...love the green frog slippers.
And maybe my thing of talking too much about nothing.
I found this while looking for something in my wallet...
Some random things about me as a kid:
I always wanted a chimpanzee. I wanted one so badly. At night when I went to bed I'd go to sleep imagining that chimp on my hip and what baby clothes of Melanie's I'd dress her in. Maybe it came from "Beverly Hill Billies" I don't know.
I loved Happy Days, Brady Bunch, The Carol Burnett Show...The Sonny and Cher Show, Flip Wilson (I was young on those)....I loved Wild Wild West and had a huge crush on Robert Conrad. We also watched Batman and Robin but I think Delane liked that one more than I did. I know all the Gunsmoke, Bonanza, High Chaparral and The Andy Griffith Show.
I still remember being excited on Sunday night when Disney would come on and when you were lucky enough for it to be a real movie, like Snow White, it was just heaven.
I grew up in the Terry Bradshaw and Roger Staubach years. Still like Pittsburgh, still hate Dallas..though I do pull for the Redskins tops as an adult.
I can remember being in fifth grade at a party for something with the little record turntables and Kiss albums...and the boys all oogling over wrestling mags with guys like WaHoo McDaniel on a page with his forehead bleeding. Those boys took that so seriously. I remember when Nature Boy, Rick Flair came on the scene and even I thought he was cool.
I took dance classes when I was young but stopped by the time I got to high school. Would you like to see a little tap routine?
Things I was afraid of: the monkeys in "the Wizard of Oz", the Bumble when he topped the mountain and roared in Rudolph, When Bonnie and Clyde got blown to bits in their car, When Scarlet tried to get that mule over the bridge through the fire and home....intense stuff for a kid and mostly....and still scary...is that scene in "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" where that evil long nose man is gathering up the children and he is trying to catch the main characters little kids...now that is scary stuff. To this day I hate that scene and the monkeys coming down to get Toto.
I was very girlie looking but a total tom boy. I could run like lightening until I was 16 and started getting too girlie...I would win races with the boys. I'd scrap behind the school in the little circle you'd go to fight if anyone did anything to me our my buddies. I was often in little friends circles and clubs though I never did like holding hands with other kids. Germs mostly. I would jump out of my swings, race little motorcycles and jump my own bike fearlessly.
I had long hair until I was 17 except for my 3rd grade year. Long long hair that would come home with glue from a boy in science class...bubble gum from lying in a piece doing sit ups in gym...Mom always threatened to cut it but she never did.
So there is a little bit about the young Rollie today.
A trip down memory lane.
Last night's memory:
I came in with my new do and thought maybe I will just put the roast on and we will slip off on a date. I'd like to see "Cloverfield". I loved "Blair Witch".
Then I had a time getting it all together, then a tiny piece of onion from the soup mix tore a hole in my bag and leaked on my just dry cleaned sweater so I decided to have wine while I cooked. Plus it took me 15 minutes to find the ties that had fallen out of the box and one of the cats had carried off as a cat toy. Things looked up after I saw that bottle in the fridge. The horses even got to eat the leftover carrots.
I really do like to drink wine while I cook. And I am a happy little girl with a big meal and a big smile when Toonces gets home!
The roast was wonderful, my best yet. Maybe double bagging is the trick. We did not make it to the movies. I have fought a UTI all week and it has caught up with me. Thank goodness my regular doc visit was already scheduled for today.
Tonight- Caleb's basketball game. I have yet to see him play.
After that I am wishing for bad weather because if school is closed then the gallery is closed. I could just go in and do the books and not have to be there ALL day. No one comes in on the yucky weather days...it's lonely.
You can't see it well but I went from the Posh cut to more the Katie Holmes cut. I was tired of those 2 long strands in the front and the back up. Plus everybody and their mama was suddenly getting that hair cut and I can't take that....plus I wanted more bangs back. This is a shaggy-er bob...not so boxy so the back is very thin at my neck and can be messy, boyish, or slicked up for a dressy night. I had some real dark chocolates put in but I have to leave some blond highlights because Rollie suddenly has a clump of white bastards in my crown and the blond softens the growth until my next coloring.
- I should've been a hair stylist.
One day I am taking my camera and letting you meet Randy...he is so cute and very cool.
Tired of me yet?
Have a good day!
---Last night Rudy G was giving that long winded goodbye speech and kiss McCain's booty talk and I said "I think Rudy just likes to hear Rudy talk" and now I am thinking maybe Rollie blogs just to hear Rollie talk. Hmmm.
