poor glory has been defining herself on flickr conversationally since april of last year. without a camera. (poor me!) however ---and gents and dolls, this is a mighty great *however* --- a camera is almost within reach. we're talking two weeks tops, here.

YAY for that. YAY a HUNDRED MILLION TIMES. i am so freaking excited. wee!

so. it's a great time to begin a journal. this way i get to chronical my anticipation from the very beginning to its delightful finish -- complete with what i hope will be awe-inspiring digital images. i dearly love inspiring myself and i look so very cute with my jaw dropped open and my eyes all sparkling and everything. wait and see! xoxo

after work i picked up the kids and we went to the library, where they were kicking off the summer reading program. brooke digs it because she's a bookworm. that apple definitely belongs to this tree haha. ashley isn't a reader, but the library is all about *positive incentives* aka HARDCORE BRIBERY. they pimp out stickers and pretty book marks and pizza parties at the half-way reading goal mark PLUS a big bash at the end of summer for the kids that made their goal.

i've discovered the joys of chocolate coated cashews. if i get fat this year it's gonna be because of those. i betcha i could pull a bigger look off. even so, i hope not to prove that. seriously, though.. they're freaking delicious.

For my daughter? That's a little harder, how do you bribe a idealistic, scholarly, non-materialistic, vegetarian? With protein, issues of Adbusters and trips to the library of course.

Chocolate cashews are definately delicious.

I think my all time faves are roasted almonds coated with cinnamon and a sort of toffee stuff.

I don't buy them very often because it's hazardous to my jeans zipper's health... {:->

Cute picture of your girls, above. Chocolate-coated cashews sounds like a nice weakness, but don't get too big, Glory.

Chocolate Covered Cashews are EVIL. EVIL. It's so damn addictive. I'm trying to quit, but you had to go and remind me.. ERK!

OK here we go...I suggest a party game to get the ball rolling - it is taking a life of its own at this point.

One person posts a comment...a phrase, a word or topic...then we all post what we think glory would say or *DO in response...it will make for certain laughter (and possibly a lightning bolt when she returns !!).

We can call this..."What would Glory say ?"

WWGS 01: Glory is at the grocery store buying her VERY favorite and VERY much wanted flavor of ice-cream for that much needed picnic with her girls. They have all the other fixins, they have the blankets, games, books, etc....all except Ice-Cream to complete the perfect day...she looks in the ice cream freezer...there is ONE last carton...it is her FAVORITE brand AND her FAVORITE flavor...she opens the door to the freezer and begins the reach....... * rich guy in a nice suit butts in front of her and grabs the carton and dashes off....

What would Glory say ??
jrayfarm1980 11 years ago
Guess I'm the first to try a crack at this - here is what Glory would say:

Ok, so I've been craving new york super fudge chunk ice cream ALL DAY and finally had enough free time to drag the girls to the store to pick some up. And of course, some jerk who looked like my uncle albert (but dressed in Armani, not his typical short, tank, and flip flops) knocks me out of the way and takes off with the last carton of ice cream. wtf, right? the funny part is, as angry as that stranger made me, it made me want to call up my uncle albert and say hi. not really so I could talk to him, but because i adore his wife, my aunt may, who always tells the funniest stories about bowling...

Now is it my turn? I'm keeping this one short! (By the way, Greens, thanks for posting the links about a Rave at Glory's! GREAT IDEA! Although it took me a few pages to realize it wasn't just a link to a photostream of rave pictures.....)

WWGS 02: Balls.
sunshinecity 11 years ago
you and your crazy idea!!! This is too fun!

Ok crap, why do I get the hard one... balls?? Balls??? Like how, what?
I'll take a stab here...

WWGS 02: Balls. .....

"So while we in line at the grocery store, after that rude wannabe Armani model stole *my* icecream, I notice the oh so cute shiny pink beach balls. You know the kind that take forever to inflate, and when you're done you're all dizzy but feel like you're high on something? Yeah those... they were like the size of my aunt may's hiny and I mean huge! But oh so pretty. There was one with pink polka dots and another with cute squiggly lines all over them. They were gonna be perfect for our picnic!
I think I'm going to invite mr armani to the pin-nic too, he can play piggy in the middle!!"

*phew* that was hard! lol

CollardGreens PRO 11 years ago


Good Work...now

WWGS 03:

Later - at the park - the Glory ensemble is enjoying a restful afternoon - (without ice-cream). The sandwhiches have all been eaten and the books come out for a "pre-nap" read. Just then Mr Armani pulls up in a overtly large and overtly noisey double sized hummer with all his friends - who immediately pull out the boom box and fireworks...the beer cooler comes out and in no time the group is drunk and using ultra profane language...aimed at women !!!

What would Glory say / do ??
Jonathan Riverwalker Posted 11 years ago. Edited by Jonathan Riverwalker (member) 11 years ago
glory would get the hell out of there so her kids would not have to listen and on the way through the parking lot - oops - where did that long deeep scratch in the sideof the hummer come from - sh*t happens

i mis glory :(

i hope she really isnt in any othese situations - i mean i hope the ice cream chest is full and mr armani is playing chopin and offering hot dogs from the BBQ on his hummer - and that he hires her to be his Personal assistant...

(I know that is no where near as cool as the stuff u guys posted - u guys did great)
CollardGreens PRO 11 years ago
Probably right...good stuff can happen too ! (we all miss her)

WWGS 04:

Glory blinks awake...the picnic was a success in reality...the ice cream was just right and Mr Armani was really in shorts and flip flops driving a reasonably priced, well maintained eco car...indeed handing out hotdogs with a business card...he asks her to come around for the interview after she takes the kids to school (the offer is for full time flex time in any case...WITH free internet)

What would Glory Say/Do ?
I wasn't invited to the rave but I am crashing in anyway. Hey Glory we will miss your beauty and (uh) glory while you are away. Have a great time; while we all stay up all day and all night for all the time you are gone. Duh--I think Jonathan is capable of that but I will have to go nap in the corner once in a while and then get up and teach everyone here how to do a Bulgarian pravo.

jonathan, i'm doing alright. i had a little time online tonight. i'm babysitting overnight for a cousin of mine. this daytime flickr fast is pretty horrible though. i'm not enjoying the respite. we were told late this afternoon that 'two weeks' may have been a very optimistic ballpark. that is the very opposite of what i wanted to hear. ugh.

moaning w/ moning
when menstruation rears its red head, i tend to bury my nose in a steamy book. it's not as satisfying as yelling at folks, but it does the job. come with me my stroll down memory lane:

one day last summer, i was sitting poolside at my mother's. my kids were swimming in the pool and i was on lifeguard duty. we weren't the only folks around -- mama had company. normally her crowd is made up of women, but on that day there were a handful of men about.

across from me, lounging in a damp chair, was a nice looking older man. small talk was excrutiatingly painful, mostly because he was forcing it. he asked me why i wasn't swimming. ashley chose that moment to turn her head our way and said "Mama never swims when her vagina is bleeding

*so mortified

to my credit, i didn't die. i turned to her and said "Let's call it 'a period', m'kay?. she said m'kay. my gentle companion didn't ask any more questions after that. now i simply read my book and this curtails any unwanted conversation. rude, yes, but hell. my you-know-what is bleeding. leave me be.
Oh Glory, come back soon and be your glorious non-drinking self.
