Getting Ziggy with It.
I saw this the other day and thought of my poor neglected blog. I've been blogging so long that if you come around here, just check out my archives. I'm sure that last year this time looks pretty similar to this time this year.
As a matter of fact, long before Groundhog Day there was Same Time Next Year, one of my favorite movies of all times. Even though the theme was adultery I think I took comfort that no matter how much some things changed there can be a stability in our lives if we nurture it. Gosh, I love that movie. Alan Alda and Ellen Burstyn, particularly Ellen Burstyn, I don't think ever received enough credit for the incredible actor that she is. Perhaps, I should rent it soon. But, really, I think I get bored with stability, I like new things, challenges, and change. So, I've been seeking them in some unfamiliar and familiar places lately, and so far it's been good times for me.
I'm doing fine. I've changed my toenail polish to green, because I just like to be different. When I was in high school, I had a blond rat tail about a year earlier than everyone else. I wore my pants above my ankles about a year too early too, and was made fun of because of it. Heck, I even got a tattoo before it was mainstream for a female to do so. I'm not all that much of a forward thinker, adventurer these days. I'm more of an Eddie Bauer, nondescript, accounting type, which I gotta tell you... I loathe! I can't wait to be my own person again and REBEL! So, for now, I do it in small ways, like picking odd color choices for my toenails, and driving a Mustang like some mid-life crisis induced man.
There's a commercial on TV right now that I just LOVE because I really hope to have that flippin' zest when I'm older that these ladies exhibit. I want it back damn it, that is if I ever had it. The business world has a way of smothering individuality. It's a tragic necessity. I suppose. But, in case you haven't seen the commercial, revel and dream for a moment with me. Don't these ladies look like they know how to have a good time?
