Hello My Little Furballs,
Here is another list of the randomness in my life..................
1.) Yesterday I was looking at pictures and reading an article in National Geographic about the conflict in Bosnia and the conflict between the Bosnians and Serbs. In one of the pictures, I saw a bunch of people in an old bus with building ruins behind them. One of the women looked almost identical to my Austrian grandmother. It kind of gave me chills. It was like I was seeing her one last time.
I miss her a lot, and whenever I see someone or something that reminds me of her, it brings me back to times we spent together. A lot of women seem to wear the same perfume she did at one point, including the woman I live with who is also around her age.
2.) The woman I live with now is in her seventies. I live with her and her husband. She is Persian but lived in Germany for many years and has a lot of European mannerisms. She sometimes reminds me of my grandmother. She said one thing that has stuck with me: "I like to learn new things. It helps me to stay young." She is taking up piano lessons and she practices every chance that she gets. My Austrian grandmother after she retired, use to take up volunteering, crafts, traveling and hiking up the Austrian Alps and cooking for the travelers.
3.) I was watching a commercial on TV for Cherry 7-Up. I laugh at the lengths advertisers go to, in order to peddle their products. On this commercial, they are promoting the Cherry 7-Up as something healthy. Basically saying that it is loaded with antioxidants and that we can.....wait for it............ finally "cherry-pick" our antioxidants.
No wonder we are the biggest nation of fat asses. Seriously. Travel abroad, and in most countries you can go weeks without seeing an obese person. With so many gym memberships and Nutrasweet packets and Jillian Michaels products, you would think that we would be a nation of hot Bay Watch babes.
I am so glad that my parents raised us against soda. I do not drink it. I will drink a 7-Up once in a while with my Korean BBQ ribs. I know, it's a quirk of mine. Otherwise, I don't really like it.
4.) I got drunk-texted last night by a stranger. I THOUGHT it was a former coworker, who I've lost contact with. But no, it was some douchebag stranger with the same name. I knew it wasn't my old coworker when he told me he doesn't remember me exactly, but that he would like me to come over because he's so hard. OMG ! I told him wrong number, and to leave me alone.
5.) Ooh, I almost forgot to mention that as I was in the parking lot and making my way to the restaurant for lunch....... there was some little yippy dog barking at me really loud and obnoxiously from a car. I was feeling a little feisty so I took off my sunglasses and told the dog to shut up. What I didn't realize was that the owners were still sitting in the car and looked at me in shock. I just walked on and tried to forget what happened.
Anyway, that is all for now my dear readers................
Besitos y abrazos !
