"And I'm pissed that I'm not getting younger. Getting pretty, getting loved, getting laid"

In 6 days I turn 27.
For the first time in my life, I am freaked about getting older.
Partly due to what is going on in my life (no kids, infertility) partly because of my job situation (still not sure if I can do this for the next 40 years) and partly because of my relationship with Danny (Will I have to ask him for the next 60 years to clean up after himself?)I get sad when I think about everything I haven't accomplished. I get even more sad when I look at other people my age and what they have accomplished, the places they've been and seen. I have lots to be thankful for, but I guess I am just wanting more for myself. I look back and everything I have gone through (somethings self-induced, some not) and I wonder how I made it this far. I guess we have to make some time for things and stop waiting for everything to happen on it's own.
I am hoping for very good things in the next 27.

Now bring me some cake !

"History is made by stupid people
Clever people wouldn't even try
If you want a place in the history books
Then do something dumb before you die"

Blind or Dumb?

And my Hawksley obsession continues....
I read this article this morning. Now these people either need new glasses or are borderline retarded.

Lukas Rossi is more Marilyn Manson than Hawksley Workman..."startling resemblance" I think not. Maybe a cracked out second-cousin resemblance but I think they look nothing alike. Look for yourself.

* thanks to b4refo0tmu5ic's flickr page for the Hawksley pic. It's a beaut

Another reason to love your childhood.....

When I was in elementary school and the temperatures were much like they have been the last few weeks (+30C), our teachers would pack us all up (chairs and all) and move us all outside and teach us. It was awesome but I thought every school did the same thing. Apparently not.

I wish my boss would do the same thing. This gal needs some sunshine :)

Miss me?

I went to Folk Fest
I volunteered
I Coordinated a Volunteer-Crew for the first time
I saw very little music
I met a lot of cool people
I had fun
I was psycho-stressed for 60% of the weekened
I was 40% relaxed and enjoying it
I am still exhausted
I have the hugest crush on Mr. Workman
I bought a new camera
I posted my pictures I took with it on my flickr

I will try and write a re-cap of this years festival.......or I may just want to forget all about it and look forward to next years.

It's a hot one kids.......stay cool!
