A Very Random Post!
Sometimes, when there isn't anything worth while to watch on TV, I turn the sports on. I don't watch them, because sports on TV (other than basketball) is kind of boring to me. But as background noise, I think sports are GLORIOUS!
I don't know if it brings back nostalgia from childhood memories, or if the extrovert in me just likes to hear people, but nothing can make me feel like a Saturday more than sports droning on in the back ground.
I realized that NBC was broadcasting the Olympics all day, so I have had it quietly playing while I make lunch or am doing something mundane and it has been quite refreshing. Everyday can be a Saturday during the Olympics!
OK, now I am going to talk about something completely random, but I just finished a small box of Junior Mints so my brain is on over-drive.
When I cleaned out my closet yesterday I did it while watching The Queen. I had heard that that movie was awesome but I was reluctant. I had no idea it was set in 1997 in the wake of Princess Diana's death.
It is with a bit of shyness that I tell you that I was a HUGE Diana fan. My mother woke me up at 3 am to watch her wedding via live satellite. I think I was nine years old and I remember it like it was yesterday.
The morning she died, almost 11 years ago. I was nine months pregnant and watched the news coverage for days.
Anyway, my love for Diana isn't what it was in those little girl years, but if I had known that The Queen was set in modern day I would have picked it up sooner! It was good! And it totally took my mind off of my dusty, cluttered (although now clean!) closet!
PS: My Mom bought the book pictured below for me after Diana married. I had forgotten I had it, but when I unpacked one of those unpacked boxes I wrote about yesterday, it was in there.
I thought it was interesting that I found it while watching The Queen. I will admit, I decided not to give it away.
And of course I had to take a picture of it, right there, in the closet, and propped up on my shoes.
La Vida Dulce!
