Troll Bridge

The camp we were recently at had a whole bunch of these fun bridges over little creeks and flood areas.  My girl had a great time pretending to be the grumpy old troll on the bridge.  She would make me give her hugs and kisses to cross – not a toll I mind paying!  I on the other hand, had a fun time posing on them. Swinging on them was fun too! *check instagram for that shot*

Raggedy Ann And Playing Pretend

Sometimes, in the midst of craziness, like trying to get Synchronicity funded, I have a moment of just plain fun.  Like, when I went this one morning to be a hair model for my friend.  I got to have my hair professionally done and walk around all super fancy for the rest of the day.  It was so glamorous.  
Of course, the following day I was back to my old raggedy Ann self, but it’s always fun to play pretend. 

Over and Over

You know, my pictures haven’t been working out the way I want them to lately.  I’m thinking it might have something to do with the fact that I freeze so much and my fingers become stiff from the cold and all I can think is, “That’s good enough.”  I can’t wait until it gets a little, just a little, warmer so I can take some time and get the shots that I imagine in my head.  
My days have not been at all interesting because I’ve spent them in rehearsal or sitting with a sick toddler on my lap.  Mostly sitting with a sick toddler, watching the same episode of Dora over and over and over….and over.

But enough about me.  I’m really boring right now.  What are you doing in anticipation of Spring?

Did you know it is cold in Toronto?  Apparently I did not, and I received a rude awakening after taking off my sweater for a photo.  It was cold. In the winter.  Who would’ve thought?  How dare the weather show such audacity?  Sometimes I do wonder why it is that I was not given control over the weather as my personal gift.  It’s probably smart given my proclivity towards impulsiveness.  You’d have rain when I felt bad, and winter when I’m angry and warm tropical sunshine otherwise.  There would be no rhyme or reason – just my moods.  Crops would not grow,  we’d have nothing to eat, and pretty soon the whole world would fall apart.  So yes, I do see why, but I still want it because sometimes in the dead of winter, I want to wear a dress with no tights on or sweaters either.
p.s.  yes that’s my Daenerys Storborn necklace.  My nerd is always showing.

I finally got my hair cut.  And I hate it.  I asked for one thing and got a totally different thing.  It looks fine when it’s all curled and such, but when it’s straight it’s exactly what I didn’t want.  Yes, I shed some tears.  No, I’m not going back to get it fixed because I would need to lose about five inches to get what I want, and I’m not willing to do that.  
Now, I realize that there are bigger things in the world like people dying, children starving,  and I’m in no way saying that my terrible haircut holds a candle to that. I have perspective.  All I’m saying is   I’m upset that I asked for one thing, and instead have what she thought I should have.  And it sucks.  It really sucks. 
I feel like that contestant on America’s Next Top Model.  You know the one I’m talking about.
This whole post was brought to you by one pouting woman who assumes that you care about my hair, which you probably don’t, and that’s okay. 

True Blood And Other Ramblings

I mentioned sometime back that I think I should write all my blog posts with wine in hand, and so I’ve been sitting here with a glass of champagne *for no real reason other than someone bought it for us and I think it’s a shame for it to sit there unopened* writing this post.  Oh, and in case you think I’m a lush, I’m just a real lightweight ’cause I’ve had literally 5 sips of it and it’s gone straight to my head.  Watch out!

So on that note, I’m looking at these pictures and several things come to mind.  First, I realize that now that it’s summer you guys get to see all my leg and arm bruises in their full glory.  They’re a result of an interesting combination of intense exercise and pathological clumsiness. I must remember to Photoshop them out ’cause that ain’t cool.  Second, I realize that I have rather the harsh expression in the last pic there.  I assure you it’s not because of any mood, it’s simply because I’m ridiculously sensitive to the light and on a bright day I squint without my black, black sunnies.  I swear, I’m a vampire….except for the drinking blood, being undead, violence, and random sex acts.   Can you tell I’m in “True Blood” season?

True Story:
Played with Baby Girl on the bed before bed tonight.  
Kept gently knocking her over with our huge pillows and she giggled like mad!  
Andrew, in the other room, asked what we were up to and I answered, 
“Domestic violence.  Apparently she finds it amusing.” 

*p.s.  yes I know domestic violence is serious. We just have a dark sense of humor sometimes.*

Random Sundays: Not Now

 After the crazy busy week I’ve had, I’m glad to be able to relax all morning and afternoon today.  True, there’s a rehearsal this evening, but that’s this evening….not now.
