dear blog

The other day I got an email from an old friend asking if I'm going to our 10-year high school reunion this year. I'm a little concerned about her. She must be completely delusional, because there's no way we've been out of high school for 10 years. No. Way.

I can't drive stick shift and do not want to learn. Someone please tell my husband.

Does anyone know the real story behind the Indian with the star on Tootsie Pop wrappers? One of my favorite local restaurants, Cruisers, gives out Tootsie Pops. This has started many conversations with my friends about the illusive "Indian". I always heard that if you get a wrapper with an Indian on it you can send it in for a free Tootsie Pop. Send it in where? And who's going to go through all that trouble for a free Tootsie Pop?! Wikipedia says it's an Urban Legend. I don't know why, but I'm very curious about this.

I usually forget to tell Anderson when I make a purchase with Paypal funds. A package will show up at the door, and he'll ask me when I bought it. I always answer with a nonchalant, "Oh, I bought it with Paypal money!" (Like it's Monopoly money or something.)

Have you heard about Shoe Dazzle yet? It's a shoe-of-the-month club that some of my girlfriends are members of. I'm tempted to join. It's around the same price as a gym membership but much for practical!

My last name is pronounced, "Al-may-duh". This is interesting because for two years I've been saying, "All-may-duh". Embarrassing. I might stick with my version anyway-it sounds more exotic. šŸ™‚

I keep applying to be on Wheel of Fortune, because I always get the puzzles right! I'm a nerd incognito. Always have been. When I was in 5th grade I spelled "deodorant" wrong, so I wouldn't win the Spelling Bee and look like a dork.

Anderson does impersonations of famous people all the time, but they ALL sound like Sean Connery.

I took a break from OPAM projects to work on Style School, but I never really posted any project pictures. You can see a few of them here. It's been fun! I still have a lot of projects to work on though.

Anderson and I were supposed to go to Brazil next month for fun in Rio and to visit family in Sao Paulo. But we just found out we can't get a travel visa for him (long, boring story). So…we're going to Hawaii instead and staying on Oahu. Does anyone have any tips? I know some of you live there or have at least visited. We would love some suggestions about what to see and do! I do already have one afternoon planned out though. I want to go see "Robin's Nest" where Magnum P.I. was filmed. I found this blog written by another obsessed Thomas Magnum fan and got really excited. Okay, I've official outed myself as a full-fledged nerd in this post!!


This photo is completely irrelevant to the post, but I just found it and it makes me laugh. I was standing on a table above "Sean Connery" during a photoshoot, and he realized he could see up my skirt. His face is hilarious!

Hope you all have a great weekend. It's supposed to be beach weather here! Whoo hoo!!!
