Okay, so I haven’t given up on the blog. But the last few days have been nuts. No internet. I started writing draft-blogs, by working offline- and they didn’t save! agggh. But this is pretty much what I wrote yesterday and saved on Word. So if anything doesn’t make sense, it’s ’cause it’s a day old.
Even though I have gotten behind on a few days now, I have still been busy busy. Lots of dinners last week- some at my place, some at others. Also a sleepover with my niece. So it has still been an enjoyable last few days. So here’s yesterdays entry:
Firstly, if it’s not all over your local news program (where the flip do you live?!), then you must know by now that
SPAIN WON THE WORLD CUP.
Okay so I was trying to think which one of those words would be appropriate to capitalise… but then as I went on, I realised the whole sentence needed to stand out. They won, they won, they won. Not just any win either, it was beautiful. They spent the whole game getting abused by the Dutch (please any Dutch out there, don’t abuse me for saying so). They got tripped, flipped and chest kicked!
What’s crazy is that I really thought Netherlands had played quite well during the whole World Cup. I was even a wee bit nervous going into the game, because I knew what focused and dedicated players they were. But no. They were really quite childish. It was such a shame for the final, to watch half of the game being about Yellow Cards and replays of dives. The best thing though was the justice. After the dozens of times that Iniesta (a mid-fielder!) had been messed with, he finally is the one to get the goal. And with only a few minutes left of the game (even though another 30 minutes had to be added on), it felt like a slim chance that the Dutch were going to score. They didn’t, the time stopped and woo- the Spaniards won! So yes, I shall stop on the Mundial… for now. I will miss it though. Waking up at odd hours and getting together with the family to watch it. Ah well, tour de france anyone?
So I also had some friends (that I went to school with) over my house for dessert and coffee. One is a school admin worker and the other is an actress. It’s… interesting, when we get together. haha- we’ve all changed a little bit since school, but still manage to carry on conversation and laugh until we spit our drink out. We’re getting better at not actually spitting the drinks out, and managing to just bow our heads and swallow. Still fun though. Oh! and I made little Banoffee pies in cups like I said I wanted to… they worked out perfectly- so much prettier than stacked on a plate.
The latest ‘Audrey’ goal has been going fairly well too. Remember, holding my tongue? Being agreeable? Appropriately agreeable though… not a push over. T’was a little hard with my friends the other night. It’s often very difficult with my family. But still, I’m trying and doing okay.
How is the www going? Let’s see, last time I wrote anything- I was ready to watch the movie NINE. Anyone else see it? Okay honestly, I was so disappointed. There was like 4 of my favourite actress’ in the film, and I found it rather meh. I wanted to like it, don’t get me wrong, I wanted to like it so badly. I just didn’t. The storyline seemed like a good one… but I don’t know. The songs weren’t that great melodically- and lyrically… well it was almost laughable. The first main song (not the one with all the girls, but the solo with Guido) sounded like something from a Dr. Seuss book. Oh, I love Dr. Seuss- he’s a genius. I read ‘Oh the places we’ll go’ at my wedding. But, you see- the songs were really rhymey and odd… wee bit juvenile. Hold on, let me go google some lyrics.
I would like to be here, I would like
To be there,
I would like to everywhere at once.
I know that’s a contradiction in terms,
And it’s a problem, especially when
My body’s clearing forty as my mind is
So anyway. Though I didn’t really enjoy the film, I do love musicals in general. My whole life I’ve wanted to sing, act and dance. Unfortunately I’m a triple threat. But not in the good way. Actually in all honesty, I think I’d be a good actress. Singing and dancing are a different story though. Speaking of which. I really want to practice my singing. I know I’ll never be Maria Callas or anything, but I’d love to at least be able to carry a tune- and not make people cringe when they hear me. You know what, I’d be happy just to hum nicely. You know how those Disney princesses are always humming? That’d be nice. So yes, lame as it may be- I want to try out my singing. I took lessons last year with this amazing teacher. But um, didn’t really work out. She scared me a little.
So, worthy for a daily goal you ask? Claro que si. I mean why not? Obviously not something that is done in a day, but I can definitely work on it. Audrey had quite the lovely voice. Apparently not good enough for My Fair Lady, but still lovely. I didn’t even like the voice of the lady in My Fair Lady… too… something. Anyway, Audrey sang lovely, and I think ‘Audrey’ would too. I think it’s a nice thing for anyone to have. I’m not expecting to be on Broadway or anything, but I’d at least like the idea of singing my kids to sleep and having them… enjoy it.
I mentioned that my niece slept over the other night. We got home pretty late, so I couldn’t spoil her with treats and movies the way her Abuela does. But I did let her have fun in the morning. She had a big bubble bath, then we curled her hair, then she got to try on my clothes (which swallowed her) and then we watched Thumbelina. I’d love to act like it was a big sacrifice for me to sit and watch a cartoon, but oh my goodness, I love that movie. I seriously dream about Tim Burton making a real life version of the movie and casting me as Thumbelina. haha how pathetic. No but really, it’d be so cool. If I saw myself as any cartoon character, it’d be her. Well, maybe a bit of Belle as well.. and Aurora. Okay okay, I’m really showing my Disney geekness.
um. So. I might go now. If you remember last weeks goal it was all about growing up and focusing on getting myself in gear. So I really should keep at that. I’ve been doing okay I suppose. But now with the World Cup over, and a laid back week coming up- I really should make the most of it- and do my research on the next steps I need to be taking.
I know this blog is kinda lame. Sometimes I read over what I write, or even just over the Daily Goal… and I think, wow. Who would really care. haha. I’m not as superficial as it may appear. I just like to be able to take 30 minutes out of the day, to write about frivolous things and carry on as though my biggest stress in life is trying to have Audrey Hepburn eyebrows. So please don’t think too low of me. It’s just nice to write sometimes. Especially about nothing. Perhaps that’s how the Seinfeld script was formed. hmm.
On that note. I shall go. My father bought all these roses for my momma that were on sale. I now get the fun job of placing them around the house. Roses aren’t my favourite or anything- but they sure do look pretty around a house. As long as you don’t have white ones everywhere. That makes one think someone has died. eek.
The Lord your God is with you, he is mighty to save. He will take great delight in you, he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing. Zephaniah 3:17
