I just heard this morning that Bea Arthur died on Saturday. Matt Lauer was talking to both “Rose” and “Blanche” about their loss on The Today Show. And as I was puttering around the house getting ready for work, I realized that I was subconsciously singing the theme song to the Golden Girls after listening to the interview.
Thank you for being a friend.
Traveled down the road and back again.
Your heart is true you’re a pal and a confidant.
And if you through a party Invited everyone you ever knew.
You would see the biggest gift would be from me.
And the card attached would say thank you for being a friend.
Now try getting that out of your head today. The lyrics completely reminded me of just how excited I am to see my girlies at our KRAC Reunion trip in LA in less than 17 days. Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!! Listen, I know I’ve been counting down to this event for the last few months, and I can respect that we should live in the moment and not wish time by BUT the last time I saw these girls all together at the same time was 7 years ago. At that time Alison was the only one that was pregnant and now she has 2 girls! Rhonda wasn’t even married and now she’s married and pregnant with her third! And Kirsten has a little girl.
And me, well I’m living my life like it’s golden.
Rest in Peace, Bea.
Blanche: “Well, I certainly didn't wait for my wedding night, honey. I couldn't - I had these urges. You know, in the South, we mature faster. I think it's the heat.”
Dorothy: “I think it's the gin”

I've been working through a major running injury for the last two years. Doctors and physios might not think it's serious but in my mind it's real pain, like nothing I've ever felt and it has taken away one of my beloved possessions. So, that's worthy of 'serious' status to me.

This week something huge happened 'within my life' and by that, I mean big news within my world. This may seem a bit odd or selfish that I'm touting it's 'my' news to share, but my belief is that when you love and respect someone so much, as a friend, you need to shout their greatest accomplishments from the rooftops. (note for future reference: my rooftop is this blog)

Fun , spontaneous humans coming together to dance and sing. Really does it get any better than this?

As I get older, I'm astounded at how much actually goes on inside my brain. While I love how I always challenge myself to be a better person - to learn more, to explore new places and people as each year passes, I'd also love to be able to put my brain in a jar.

yay! Today I received my invite to Jennie and Dave's wedding. But since the wedding is a year away, in Mexico, it was technically a "save the date" magnet to remind all of the their loved ones (and there are many) to keep Feb 2010 open. well, done.

I often buy flowers for myself. It's one of my all time favourite things about living in Toronto. The concept of getting a variety of stunning flowers for under $8 a bunch. Especially tulips...mostly because they last so very long. It's as if the tulip appreciates living more than any other flower. Whether it's at the grocery store or a corner store I love buying them and I always look forward to getting home and seeing them in my apartment. They brighten an entire room. And my mood.
