Never Saw Things Going So Right

Comments (9)

I haven't done a single thing on my summer to-do list yet, despite being invited to fly a kite and despite driving through the (full! no room at the inn! pack your bags and move to Cali, sucker!) parking lot of the library. No French phrases have been learned, and no letters have been written to my amazing, lovely grandmother. As far as someone is concerned, my summer has been a heaping pile of failure.

But oh man, that someone would be so, so wrong. I have witnessed some of the most beautiful sunsets just by looking out my bedroom window. I have sat on the front porch and read Pride and Prejudice with the hummingbirds.

I have come inside to find freshly made brownies being brought to my room. I have welcomed back one of my favorite friends after his year-long stay in Scotland. I find myself the lucky recipient of some of the best gifts of all time.

Tomorrow night, I will carry on the tradition of Friday Night Date Night with my mom, complete with Panera, Gilmore Girls, and way too much ice cream. On Sunday, I will sit on the grass and listen to Pink Martini. On Thursday, I will meet some of my favorite twenty-something bloggers for a fantastic weekend in Chicago. On Monday, I will collapse into my brand new bed and take a nap with my favorite cat.

I don't know about you, but I hope this summer never ends.

Be of good cheer! Summer doesn't even OFFICIALLY START until Sunday! You've got plenty of time, Chica.

1) An essential French phrase: Mangez-moi.

2) You are unbelievably lucky.

Sounds like your summer is pretty kick-ass already. That's good! You had a string of pretty crappy times, if I remember. It's nice to have some good stuff too. :)

To borrow a French phrase from a short, red haired genius:
Omlette du'Fromage.
Its the only French you ever need to know.

Sounds relaxing and fun. Wish my mom would watch Gilmore Girls with me... not Everybody loves Raymond.

I just came across a great French expression.
Trouve avant de chercher
Saul Bellow translates this as, "There are times when the most practical thing is to lie down."
I like that. I don't think the translation is exact, but the idea is good.

Looks like my Chicago trip isn't going to happen. So you want to talk about a big pile of heaping failure, you're looking at one... er a screen of letters and words that were written by a failure!

Pingie resent this to me for some reason, so I read it again.

Team Squirrel is TOTALLY qft.
