Girl Confessions (and Parched Ovaries)

1. I was listening to this soundtrack in the car earlier. Singin’ in the Rain was probably the first musical I ever saw and this scene is one of my favorites. Especially when Debby Reynolds jumps out of the cake.

2. I feel like the dining room and office need some no-cost sprucing. When I figure out how to do THAT, I'll let you know! I feel like I need to throw away a lot and completely redo my filing system. Any by redo my filing system, I mean throw everything away and set the dumpster on fire. Yes?

3. Ever wonder what it would be like to be a Lego man in space? Wonder no more. This guy actually made it.

4. Remember when I asked if Downton Abbey was worth watching? Well…it is. It totally is.

Anna: Because I love you, Mr. Bates. I know it's not ladylike to say it but I'm not a lady and I don't pretend to be.

Bates: You are a lady to me.

I didn’t think I could crush so hard on a head housemaid and a valet but apparently, I can.

5. I got halfway through The Pioneer Woman's book, Black Heels to Tractor Wheels and was very taken with the story, interested in hearing how she and Marlboro Man fell in love. Then I read this and nearly chucked the book across the room:
[After a conversation that Ree and Marlboro Man have about how many babies they should make in the future] “My ovaries…were doing backflips, as if they’d been wandering, parched, in a barren wasteland and finally, miraculously, happened upon a roaring waterfall. And that waterfall was about six feet tall, with gray hair and bulging biceps. They never knew they could experience such hope” (Drummond 150).
I’m sorry, what? I don’t even…WHAT? Parched ovaries? I love you, Ree, but…really? Also, please stop describing every outfit you wore on every date with your husband ever. I can’t remember what I wore yesterday.

Alright, your turn. Girl confessions this week?

love, elizabeth

LMAO about the ovaries thing. I felt that way too at times in the book. I just don't even know.

I love Singing in the Rain. I feel like the only thing people know about that movie is the main title song, but if they actually sat down to watch it, they'd really enjoy it.
