a blog with no name

I’ve written three articles this week on top of a 55-hour project week, a day full of gardening, an hour of parasailing through the South Sound (… the manifestation of pure glee!!), and a couple of hours of kayaking off Whidbey Island. And somewhere in the middle there, I managed to nurture a good friend from California, broken hearted after his boyfriend dumped him; catch up on two long overdue letters home; dine out with my guests from New York; and even grab a few hours sleep along the way. But, “GDI” (gosh darn it—hokey but “politically correct”) I could not for the life of me, come up with a topic for this week’s blog!

I could blog on how tired I am of hearing the term “PC”—but I’m so bored of hearing diluted, superficial, “politically correct” blandness that I can’t be “FB” (flippin’ bothered). And I’m even more bored by the people who hook their fingers in the air doing that wiggly rabbit-ear thing, as if they are wrapping quotes around the term “PC”. What’s wrong with having an opinion these days?

I could blog on how freeing it felt to parasail across the Puget Sound, shoulder-to-shoulder with seagulls, overlooking the Olympic Mountains and nose to-tip with the still snow-crested Mount Rainier—but I’m afraid I’m getting “SA” (somewhat addicted) to the adventure rush since I almost ditched the gardening day to soar amongst the clouds again.


I could blog on how perfect today was as I meditated while plucking roses in a gentle ocean breeze—but then I’d have to tell you how I moved a planter and disturbed a family of frogs who quickly scattered the lawn, driving me screaming into the street. And then you’d know what a “GBFW” (great big fat wuss) I am.

So in light of last week's blog, when I vowed to reassess priorities and do what’s important to me, I’ll just say how "GD" good life is, and how grateful I am for “TSTIL” (the simple things in life)—even if it’s not always “PC” to say so.

I'm with you on TSTIL ~ however, too many of them at once make me an RL (raving lunatic).

Go parasailing.

I'll leave the parasailing to you. Any flying I do will be in a powered aircraft with either fixed or rotating wings. I bet it's a blast, but my fear of heights limits me to modes of flight that have doors and floors. As for your article, you have a canny way of saying a lot under the pretense of saying very little. I love your style.

Ooops, I meant uncanny.

Your email out? My note to you (some kewl news!) came back saying you had no addy by that email. I have no idea (too tired to sort it out)...email me so I can try a return on it (or at least make sure I didn't somehow muck yours up)?

Hugs,
Yazza

Andrea - yes, I can relate to the RL affect of too much!

Thank you Lisa ... appreciate your feedback!

And thank you John...my native American name is "Wind-in-her hair". Well I have vertigo, but I love anything that blows my hair about (what little I have ;-) You should give it a whirl!

Yaz, will call you after hours. BTW, did you know they've just launched a birth control pill called Yaz? LOL ...

Very clever. And poignant.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Now I've discovered yours and I will stop in regularly. And what you say about reassessing priorities resonates with me A LOT. Thank you. TI

Amen sista. Would be a shame not to take advantage of all the opportunity that Washington provides.

You've drawn my envy once again.

Bug said...

I love your voice! This was really fun to read--and it made me want to go parasailing!

I just love the way you wrapped it all up in abbreviations - could this be what (BIF) blogging in future looks like?! LOL!!!!

Hey Bibi- thanks for checking out my blog- now that I've been to yours I'll be back. We're neighbors! Your entry reminds me of the story in the Sun about acronyms. Very funny!

Bibi said...

"TEFYC" (thanks everyone for your comments). And to those who want to, but haven't yet, "GPS" (go parasail!)

Buffy said...

I'm jealous that you have somewhere to kayak.
