My sister has been walking a lot and says she's seeing some progress. I, on the other hand, am not having much success.
So today I decided to go for a little jog. Approx. a mile, in my neighborhood, which is scary in and of itself. But I did it. Feeling pretty proud of myself I headed down the hill towards my house. I noticed a shiny little face peering out a front room window, waiting for my return. As I hopped up into the yard to surprise my little one I stepped in a sink hole and SPLAT!, fell flat on my face. Classy.
I'm sure my little old lady neighbor say everything and if I were her I'd have been rolling with laughter. Ugh.

I went to a sing-along.
A Buffy sing-along.
I had a lot of fun. It was kind of goofy and a little uncomfortable, mostly because it was a new experience, not because of the event itself.
There were props.
and oh yes,
There were no 'cool kids' sitting in the back making fun of you for being silly. In fact, sillyness was expected, if not demanded.
It was really neat how everyone was into it. At one point the host asked if the initially requested heckling of a character could be toned down and people actually did it. WOW!
Besides the event itself I enjoyed my entire excursion. Austin was awesome, as always. And I had some fabulous food at Fado, an Irish pub.
Cracker, Coy, and Shley, Thanks for the 'FUN TIMES' !! Love you guys!

So they may have a chance of finding a place where they’re far more suited than here"
I just love that. So clever. And SO true. I have several bloggers that I read on a regular basis and I'm just in awe a bit. They are so good at capturing my attention, painting pictures with words, and making me want more. And there are several others I wish would blog more often. I wish I had that talent. I feel a bit lost with that. I don't have a 'talent'. Bummer if I'm 80 before I find out what it is.
That's not why I'm here today.
I'm here because I'm not cool. Somehow I doubt that anyone else dwells on this as much as I do. Feeling confident in your own skin... that's hard for me and I hate it. I think it's hindered by my desire to be loved by everyone. And I'm not. This is obvious by the fact that we can invite like 15 people over and only two come. It's sad really. I've got several friends that I don't care what they want to do, I'm there. "What, come over to sacrifice a goat in a ritual attempt to ward off evil spirits? I'm so there". I think maybe this is something cool that I've been missing out on, because I'm not in the know. Really it's just about spending time together... Just something on my mind today.
That and I really miss singing. Yeah, we sing every Sunday at church, standing in the sanctuary, one huddled mass. But it's not the same. I want someone to say "Hey Lori, I'm trying to put something together and really need a female voice in the mix. You interested?" That would be awesome.
Earlier when I thought "I want to blog today" this was not at all what I was thinking about but this is what came out... ummm.
