Fluffy Pink Thoughts
I shopped this afternoon after work. The necessities notwithstanding, I got Sandra Brown's new book, "Ricochet." That'll make a nice weekend read. I also got a new CD -- Chris Isaak. Good Lord, what a voice he has. Absolute heaven. I bought a new white blouse (I have a good excuse -- Fall is coming) and a new pair of jeans. Pink. My old pink jeans don't fit any more; too big. Long story short, I meant to lose five pounds last summer. It got completely out of whack and I ended up losing over twenty. I've only put seven back on. End result: a whole new wardrobe.
I have a wedding to attend next month. The ceremony itself will be outdoors, on the water in coastal North Carolina. I bought a dress to wear, then decided maybe it wasn't quite right and bought another one. They're both pink. Guess what color my shoes will be?
I love pink. If I ever get my own cult, I'm going to make everybody wear pink robes and mail me my money in pink envelopes.
There wasn't a whole lot of time today to hit the streets and hunt down Words Gone Wild, but I did manage to pick these ruffians up.
Receieve - I think this could be a misspelling by a chef directing the scullery maid to put something back through the sieve.
Roryalty - A cult devoted to the late Rory Calhoun; probably not pink.
My firned - No idea WTF that is. Somebody with a fir tree named Ned? Your guess is as good as mine.
Dislexic - A dysfunctional word for dysfunctional people with aversions to dictionaries.
Recoupe - Going back for seconds of a cool, frosty, fruit garnished dessert.
Greatful - Heard from a guest after dinner -- "Great! I'm full!"
My yatch - His ... what?! No, I have to put my foot down. We are not going there.
