23 Things

1. If you had to choose between a million bucks or to be able to go back in time and fix all your mistakes which would you choose? A million bucks. I don’t think the mistakes I made require fixing. It got me here, didn’t it? Now where is my million bucks?

Isn't this a beauty? I was in Ohio, at this gorgeous shopping center ( that was landscaped like a botanical garden. We hung out for two days in a row, enjoying the free wi-fi at Barnes and Noble, shopping and eating (see my "Mangia" post) fabulous food. I was THIS close to Ruth's Chris for dinner, but I was wearing jean capri pants and flip flops and didn't feel apropriately dressed to indulge in filet mignon like that. Next time, as we go through this area often.

GREAT photo. And I love your answers. Kelly Clarkson makes me want to sing in the car, very loudly.

Found you via AJ, btw.

That IS a great photo. Reminds me of the Botanical Gardens in Montreal. Is there really a plant called the Wandering Jew? I have GOT to get me one of those.

Your blog is fanatastic. Especially love the one about your brother!

now you are-

Posting lists
Discussing your skin
Like Kelly Clarkson
Discuss "all about you"
Your family and friends
show your photography

Watch out, you may get hate mail, be called superficial, self absorbed, a terrible writer, accussed of not caring about current events or maybe even be called a hypocrite.

Me, I think you're just being you so I give you some slack.

I am not sure I would listen to Kelly Clarkson. I am an Old Time Rock n Roll person. Ya, there are a few songs I like of today and I have to put up with Rap in my house.

That plant is so pretty. No green thumb here. I can kill a cactus! Honest!

If you're referring to my blog being similar to that of a certain redhead, in order for me to be a hypocrite, I'd actually have to BE superficial, self absorbed and a terrible writer. That IS the definition of a hypocrite – you might want to look that up.

I think I have a looooong way to go before I get there and given my age and experiences in life, if I were going to be a hypocrite, it probably would have happened already. Unlike the person you are defending, who among other things, is already superficial and self-absorbed, well before her much celebrated 30th birthday.

In order to reach THAT kind of blogger status, I'd have to:

1. Post oh, another 673 more photos of myself.

2. Complain about everything, in spite of all the advantages I’ve had in life.

3. Post a picture of every friend I ever had to prove they exist.

4. Beg people not to think I'm like the person I portray myself to be in the blog.

5. Beg more people to take pictures of me everywhere I go to make it look like I've been spontaneously photographed, laughing as I throw my head back to toss my perfectly styled mane.

6. Bang every guy I've dated, sometimes in the back of a cab and sometimes using cooking spray for lube, so I too can have an MID numbered list.

7. Date a tool that looks like he's been shot with a tranquilizer dart.

8. Name the brands of clothing I'm wearing and which trendy eatery I was seen in this week.

9. Have gone to fat camp to improve my self-esteem, which I didn't need since my friends, family and boyfriends have always loved every last pound of me.

10. Claim I’m writing a private diary “for myself” but then go on to reveal intimate details of my life; like abortions, sexual escapades and my penchant for having my dog lick my private parts.

And this is the SHORT list.

I guess I better get crackin’ if I’m to up my blogger status and run with the big dogs.

Oh, please.

The questions posted have made the email rounds countless times. I get them (or something similar) about once per month, usually from one of my mom's friends.

I am not worried that our dear Daily Ranter has moved to the Dark Side.

Enjoy your time with Vicki!
