Road Trip Wednesday-if I could have I would have

In support of Like Mandarine's release YA Highway is asking:
Back in high school I would have picked the pretty perfect people.  You know the ones, the ones who always had a hot boyfriend. They were beautiful, smart, their parents bought them cars, they never worked.  Ugh. 

Now thanks to facebook, 15 years later I can check up on them.  Second marriages, botox and many extra pounds, I wouldn't trade my life for theirs any day.


Now that I'm older, I want to  be like HOLLY DOSON---you know she's pretty awesome.  I have insider info on her, she's my hero.  YOu know when you think, "gee, I've got my stuff together."  But then Holly tells me a little a bit about her life and I think DAMN, now SHE has her shit to-geth-ER.

In other news, my daughter had her surgery today.  It went smoothly but there was a lot of crying on her part, afterwards.  Right now she's watching her 4th episode of My Little Pony and playing with her new My Little Pony toys. 

Zoey 2.0 is still downloading, but I'm expecting the download to be complete by tomorrow.

Don't forget to sign up for my LIFE IS AWESOME contest.

  4. You are so right. Thank God for FB. It reminds me of one of my fave lines from Almost Famous, when Lester Bangs says, "You'll meet them all again on their long journey to the middle."

    Hope you and your little one are doing okay.

  7. Hi--Stopping by from RTW. I'm glad I'm reading posts written by people who were a lot like me--not popular cheerleader types. I suppose those types have blogs too, but I don't think many of that type are aspiring writers.

  8. So the people who were all thin and popular in my HS class? Not fat. I don't think that's fair at all. (Though at least one is in jail.)
