"I'm Not Hanging Noodles on Your Ears"

I am making tea with my navel over this video and will be running out to get this book...wait, is that an idiom, too? So, do you have thighs like banana trees? What do you mean my head should grow in the ground like an onion?

I have enough trouble understanding my 19-year-old, I had no idea it would be that hard everywhere. My brother says things are "sick." I almost hit him the first time he said it but being the baby brother, he knew what he was doing and dodged out of the way. Sick means good. If something is bad, what do you call it?

LitChat on Twitter (yes, Twitter again) has a chat three times a week and today was with a just published author Jag Bhalla...and I missed it damn it. I went back and read the Twitter stream. It is so fun to be able to actually tweet with the author and have them answer you back. I can pretend I sound somewhat edumacated and sophistated...instead of being the hermit holed up in my office still in her pajamas at two o'clock in the afternoon. Of course, how edumacated can you be when you use words like "tweet?"

I guess I will shower and put some clothes on....I mean I have clothes on...put on some outside clothes and run to Barnes and Noble. And I must be attractive because I have thighs like a banana tree, and I'm not hanging noodles on your ears saying that, but I may be blowing sunshine up your skirt.

It's always good to show up to Barnes & Noble looking at least half-way presentable. Otherwise the employees will go home and tell their husbands about your wacky attire, freak.

Ah, I'm feeling the love, mjenks. The nice thing is that I am sure most husbands would like at their wives with a WTF look on their face wondering why anyone cares...unless their metro I guess, then I'm shit out of luck. *muttering under my breath* Fine, I will wear something presentable.

I am trying to care if I'm more than legally covered up here lately. But dang it is hot.

The Book store...we have a Books a Million within driving distance. Love to just sit and take in the atmosphere drinking their over priced coffee....wonder if I could live there?

@eloh...So far, knock on wood, August in sunny Southern California has been mild. I have not even turned on my AC which is amazing because I hate sweating. People watching at the book store is always a blast. I used to love people watching at airports drinking over priced terminal coffee. Like little soap operas.

Renee...Thanks! I love your writing...and the incredible pictures you have on your blog. What an inspiration.
