Tempting fate


Talk about tempting fate and being blond.

I'm trying to hang some things in my new office. I have had, about a bottle of wine. My kids are fighting upstairs and I'm trying to ignore them because there's nothing I can do to make it better. Matthew is just in a mood today. I have my iTunes pumped up and am using my skewed perception to figure out where things would look good.

I have three wooden signs, painted black: one says 'Imagine', which I hung over my gold Sgt. Pepper's album, one says 'Believe', and I hung it over a tall bookcase on one side of the window in my office (which means it is pretty high up). I thought I would hang the third on the opposite side of the window, which is over the corner part of my desk.

I tried standing in my executive chair and leaning in over the desk to reach the top of the window, but felt like it was going to roll out from under me. So, I planted one foot on each side of the desk and leaned up to hang it. I really had to stretch for one side, and that's when I realized I was hanging a sign that said 'Laugh'.

I had a vision of me falling from the desk and the irony of hanging a sign that said 'laugh' while drunk and taking stupid risks :)

Welcome to my life.

BTW - my boys are six and I just set up for two girls to spend the night with them on Friday. :) Yep - the girls from the pictures. Starting them young, huh?

I just had a vision of you and GeorgiaSkydiver trying to do a home improvement project with the help of a couple of bottles of wine.

I'm still laughing.

Oh boy. We would get it done, it just might follow the original plans. *laugh*

We are two strong, intelligent women who can accomplish anything we put our minds to.

And we're blond. :)

Dangerous combination.

Oh, I have no doubt at all that the two of you would eventually get it done. The hilarity along the way would be worth videotaping though.

Oh, it wouldn't take something as complex as home improvement to be funny. I think walking across the room with a drink in your hand or trying to cook dinner would be enough of a hurdle. :)

they have a hard enough time just having waiters hand them bottles of wine.

trust me.

Ooooooh. Don't tell stories on us! We weren't the ones who knocked over that whole ice bucket. That was my mother!

That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

You are so, so right! You should have been us testing out the merchandise in Brookstone. I think we've been banned from that store for life.

Every day you make me love you even more.

Hoshit, I just spewed Diet Dew on my computer screen when I saw your icon! Hilarious!

I spewed some more when I read the post. I trust that you survived that drunken blond moment?? ;)

Since I can't seem to get anything done in my spare room, I think I'll down a bottle of wine and see what happens....
