Little Red Riding Hood, You Sure Are Lookin' Good

You're everything a Big Bad Wolf could want. Aaaawwoooooooooooooooooooooooo! I mean baaaa!

I love that song. And now I have the kokeshi doll to go with it!!

Is she not totally flippin' adorable? I'd been admiring her for a long, long time and when I found out that this was the LAST ONE at the shop, well....she came home with me :) She's a different style than all the rest of my kokeshi dolls (of which I now have fourteen, but I figure if I was aiming for an average of one a month for the entire time we've been here, then I'm still behind by seven). I think this one may go to live on my desk at work.

Anyway, since I have once again been buying the kokeshi dolls, you can probably tell that we are finally back on Okinawa. Hallelujah!! That flight is waaaaaaayyyyy too long and I don't wanna fly anywhere else for a long time. At least not until I have lots more chocolate. Lee is doing well post-surgery, not quite at 20/20 yet but his prescription was strong enough before the surgery that he's been told it's just going to take a couple of months before he gets all the way to perfect vision. In fact, the doc told him that he's healing ahead of the power curve, but Lee's still all impatient and stuff. And he's trying to convince me that I should have laserbeams shot at MY eyes too so I don't have to worry about glasses or contacts anymore. Honestly I am slightly jealous about that part, it's the whole *eye surgery* idea that gives me the wiggins.

So we got back here and were severely jet lagged, and then both of us were working like mad people to catch up at work, then I had a midterm on Tuesday, then I started freaking out about the 15-page paper I have due on September 24 that I haven't started yet, then our Internet went out for a while. So not much going on here :p Oh, and yesterday I had to go get some new Cocok's toes (that would be at Cocok's with the Silent K), I was so *over* those blue stripes (sorry Amber, I never really got on board with those stripes...the green ones were way cuter). So lookie!

I'm being kind this time and not posting toe pics on the top of the page, so just in case I don't blog again for a few days then you won't be staring at my toes every time you refresh the page (which is at 15 minute increments all day, right?) So anywah, I'd been looking at this design last time and then went Toe Twinkie with Amber instead on blue stripes, so I got this one now. Don't think I've had my toes painted pink yet so it's something different. And I think I've got my next toes all picked out, I'm gonna go retro SHE-RA toes!! You'll just have to wait to see what that means in my warped mind, my friends. For now, I like these, and for once I think I actually have clothes that will coordinate, because it is important to coordinate your clothes with your toes. Clinton and Stacy said so. (I so made that up.)

Liz told me she was expecting a new blog post (behold the blog post!) *and* a new scrapbook layout this weekend. Yeah, finishing a scrapbook page is SO not happening this weekend, but I can show you what's been in the works for, like, a month now:

Those are pics from our trip to Chinatown last December, and I've kind of been working with the pics from the other Chinatown temple too, but this is about as far as I've gotten. I would lurve to finish this right now, but I should be online doing research about the Nazis 'cause that's what my paper is supposed to be about. But I think first I have to go to the store or else I won't have any Lucky Charms for breakfast tomorrow, and I need to start my Monday off with Magic Marshmallows or the world as we know it will...not care, but still, I like my Magic Marshmallows.

I think I've been watching too much Gilmore Girls lately, it's starting to affect my speech and thought patterns. I also started a new cross stitch project while I was in Texas, but I can't show it here because it's a gift for someone. Dude, I should do more stitching for ME just so I have stuff to post about. But for now, I need to be researching for that darned paper. Aaaahhhh! Less than two weeks before it's due. Urgh.

ROFL b/c A) I have missed your posts, as I do, in fact, refresh every 15 minutes and have been bored without anything new to make me smile and B) I have lived my whole 47 years thinking I am the only person who loves Lucky Charms, and now I understand the true bond of our friendship! LOL

LOVE the new toes. You will feel so happy when you wear coordinating clothes. :)

And you know I love the doll, too!

It's about freakin' time! Just slap a title on your page - it is good to go ;) Actually, I changed my mind. Don't do anything so I can catch up to you - he he. Good luck on your paper.

Actually Liz, nothing is stuck down on that layout yet and I still need mats on the two pics on the lower left. And some journaling. And a title. Maybe some accents. So really, it's hardly started. September is your opportunity to blow past me like I'm scrapping still...because, well, I am. :p

Liz Guidry said...

I wish I had a bunch of time to blow past you, but I've got a gajillion things to do like plan Autumn's party and plan for the movers to come next month! ack! I just hope to meet my goal and then maybe I'll be tied with you ;)

AWWWWWW, I like the toes better than the koksehi but both are so stinkin cute. I think these little dolls are adorable. AWESOME toes!!! So glad the recovery is coming along well
