I've had this song in my head for the past couple of months. It's a familiar one, but it never gets old. (not my video...)

As I sit at my desk at work, in my mind I am here. Today is perfect weather for a hammock nap. Or at least a hammock-book-read or hammock-mind-clearing in the breeze.
If I were to go to my "hammock happy place" (as opposed to my "beach happy place"), I'd take my iPod and A Confederacy of Dunces and just escape. Who's with me?
I might even use the following song as my theme for the day -- "Cathedrals" by Jump Little Children. (The accompanying video is good, too, although I'm not sure who made it...but you might see your happy place in one of the photos...)
Take a deep breath. Close your eyes. Enjoy the moment.

Speaking of remakes, I do have a favorite. One of my favorite books is Great Expectations by Charles Dickens. Oddly enough, I also enjoy the Americanized/modernized movie version which stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Ethan Hawke.
Click the video below to see my favorite scene in the movie. I also love the music in this scene. It is an original score written for this movie.

As you may have deciphered, I will not be purchasing this...crap. Instead, I have started a savings envelope to have plastic surgery on my inevitable neck flap in the future. I am taking donations if you care to contribute to the Single Chin, No Extra Neck Skin FUND.

Then Kurt took me home to be his wife.
We had a lovely reception at Old Waverly golf club in West Point.
As we were leaving, my friends Becca and Kathryn put birdseed down my dress.
Even so, off we go!
I love you, Kurty-poo! :)

One reason I want to try the holes is because of the following hilarious video. Enjoy!
You won't likely see this video on television because a conservative media watchdog has targeted Hardee's for risque commercial content. (Lame, guys.) Therefore, I am bringing it to you for your viewing pleasure!
You. Are. Welcome.

I just had the BEST shower of my life. Why? Because today I bought and used the Schick Quattro razor.
The girls at The Melting Pot
We then met up with the groom and groomsmen (and Kurt) at the Omni Royal hotel in downtown NOLA and proceeded to Pat O's where, yes, I got a hurricane in a souveneir glass.

Audrey with Julie, her younger sister and maid of honor.
For dessert we ate cake, but not before the bridesmaids and flower girl pulled charms out of it. I got the wishing well...for good luck in the future... or whatever.Pulling the cake charms
Kurt with some groomsmen on balcony
Doug's friends introduced me to a delicious local drink called a Pimm's Cup (which I called Pimp Juice, of course). Look it up. It's yummy. Kurt even liked it!Kurt, Audge, Doug, Marty
Saturday was the wedding day! It went off without a hitch...well, I'm sure there were a few hitches, but Doug and Audge ended up hitched anyway.
