Posts Tagged ‘shopping’

I was tired of reading all the negative reasons for winning a huge lottery (such as tonight’s soon to be historic event), and decided I needed to make a list of why it would be “good” to win such a huge amount of money.  So, I have compiled a list, which of course you have to keep in mind, would probably be a “woman’s” idea of living life to the fullest.

Also, I need to disclose that  I did not take much time to come up with this list, so it is probably kind of lame.

1)  I need a new wardrobe.  What woman doesn’t?  I need to go to several of those “designer” shows and buy something horrid, that I would only wear once (if that).  Something like this:

What can I say…..it is ugly.

2) I need some shoes to go with the dress.

Of course….they should not match the dress.

3)  I need a new hairdo.  Something that shows I am not afraid to “be myself”, even if I look like I am standing under a mushroom.  Or maybe I am a mushroom…..you decide.

It is all the rage…..

4)  I will need to go get all kinds of Plastic surgery, so that everyone I know will not recognize me at all.  I will try to become  like a brunette Barbie doll.

Oh yeah……..I’m hot!

5)  After all that “self-improvement”, I will need to set up my household  and hire someone to do all those mundane tasks that I really don’t like doing:

What can I say….we all hate to do this stuff.

6)  I will have to get someone to “live-in” and do even more mundane tasks:

Nothing makes you feel like you are wasting your life away than going grocery shopping.

7)  After all that, it is time to gallivant around Europe and discover some medieval towns.  I will dine outdoors, and people watch.  Oh life will be good!

A medieval town in Southern France.

8)  I will take my son to Italy to experience the BEST ice cream in the world…..you know it!  Gelato!

Italian Ice Cream…..mmmm…the BEST!

9)  We will of course stop to experience  Tuscany.


10)  While wandering around Europe, we stumble upon this wonderful little castle, which I just “have to have”.

I may need to hire more help for this.

11)  We will indulge in the BEST food…..oh man.


12)  None of this will happen.  Of course I am only wishing, dreaming, as I can’t even purchase these tickets where I live.

I’m probably better off.  I have decided I would have looked like a duck after purchasing all those stupid things.

7 things about me.

So I was one of twelve people elected by Redriverpak to provide some interesting details about myself. I don’t know that I have as many “humiliating” things as he had on his list, but I would say my list falls under “quirky” or “weird” facts about me. So here you go….

    1. I am a germ-o-phobe – I don’t like shaking hands with people, or touching door knobs, or coughing, hacking, sneezing people….I avoid them like a plague. Because of my obsession with germs, I am constantly washing my hands. You too would be obsessed if you read this book, “The Hot Zone” by Richard Preston. It is based on a true story.

    2. I am a true believer in the following: Great minds discuss ideas, Average minds discuss events, Small minds discuss people.

    The “discuss people” thing is referring to gossip, and gossip is not important news of any kind.  People who are fascinated by such aren’t very smart.

    3. I’m afraid of scorpions…..as sometimes I find them in our home. They probably look more menacing than they really are (I’m assuming this), but I have been fortunate to have not been stung by one yet..…(knock on wood). I am also afraid of sharks….you will never find me surfing in the ocean, or even kayaking in the ocean…..yes….people get eaten by great white sharks while kayaking.

    4. I am disillusioned by my thinking that I will someday be very successful as an artist, or author. I am somewhat talented with graphic arts, but REAL art….hmmmm….I doubt it , and writing….well, other than having some articles published in local newspapers….nobody is pounding on my door with any great offers.

    5. I have never, and probably will never buy a Starbucks coffee. I refuse to pay $5 for a cup of coffee, that is just like throwing money away. The same thing applies to purses….I don’t have a Dooney & Burke, and probably never will….I refuse to pay $400 or $500 for a purse. I also believe it is a waste of money to pay someone to do your fingernails.
    6. The things I would spend money on If I were rich, someone to clean my house, do my grocery shopping, and if I have tons of money to blow….then I would pay someone to cook every once in awhile too. I don’t mind cooking….just not everyday. I really get tired of having to figure out what to cook.

    Another thing I don’t mind spending money on is fine writing instruments….or fountain pens.  There’s something about a fine pen that I cannot explain….but if you haven’t tried one, you just don’t know what you are missing out on.

    7.  I like men to have deep voices….that is sexy to me.  I cant think of a bigger turn-off when a cute guy/man…. starts talking and sounds like a girl….you know what I’m talking about so quit laughing.  This guy here has a sexy voice:

There you go….not really embarrassing things, but like I said earlier, kind of quirky stuff about me.
