It’s stupid-hot today and this Mermaid is feeling relatively un-inspired. So here’s a rather cheesey addition to my blog for lack of a better topic. So that I might save a few (much needed) braincells for other activities today, here’s a brainless list of some of my favourite things:
A – Animals. All types, all kinds. Webbed, clawed, scaly or non. I love animals (I think that giraffes and koalas are two of my favourites).
B – Baths. Long, luxurious soaks in the tub to ease stress and strain. Yes, sea-salts are a beautiful addition to any summer bath.
C – Chocolate. “Hello?!” No explanation required. Cheese comes in at second place – I like the crumbly Wensleydale variety with the cranberries….mmmm….
D – Dawn/Dusk. Two of my most favourite times of the day. Transience at its finest.
E – hmm….gotta think about that one. Eggs? Eggplant? Elephants? England?
F – Flowers. Especially flowers with fragrance. The jasmine is in bloom in my area and it smells divine….
G – Gordon Ramsay. He can cook and he is gorgeous. Enough said.
H – Holidays. Any type of holidays – vacation, civic, you name it. Any excuse to relax and enjoy life should have a special date and a cool name.
I – Imagination. We should use more of it – makes life more interesting!
J – Jokes. I can’t tell one to save my life, but I love hearing them. “Why do they call it a chicken coupe? Because if it had four doors, it would be called a chicken sedan…” [groan….I was told that one as I waited at Starbucks for a coffee one day….poor lonely man….I laughed too damnit!….grrrrr].
K – Kaleidoscopes. I met a lady that sold some killer kaleidoscopes on one of my travels to the US. She makes them out of glass and has one that looks like the Rose Window at the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. Quite frankly, these objects were some of the neatest things I had seen in a long time. I had no idea that kaleidoscopes could be so elegant.
L – Lakes. This mermaid loves water. Paddling, swimming, lounging or exploring. Lakes are great.
That didn’t kill too many braincells. I think I’m due for another coffee before I doze off….[snore……Zzzzzzzzzzzz].
