California Dreamin'

I've got a laundry list of things to fantasize about right now:

1) The new trip on my horizon. Rome in September. Maybe a stop somewhere (Switzerland/Portugal/Ireland? The world is my oyster) on the way to/from the Colisseum etc.

2) A skinnier me. At least 10 pounds skinnier. I've gained about seven pounds since my dad carved our Thanksgiving turkey. I think major plans are in order once the calendar sweeps its way to 2007.

3) A boyfriend. I imagine this will be perpetually on the list until Cupid decides to have his way with me. The holiday break did give me a bit to be positive about...

4) More time. I cannot wait to shout a big Be gone with you! to the holidays. I mean, spending time with friends and family is a blast, and I haven't enjoyed so much good food in a very long time (see #2) but it's time for me to get a chance to hang out in my apartment and be all by my lonesome. I really thrive on alone time - it helps me power down and renergize so I can return to my crazy ass self.

5) A nice pair of winter heels. I loves me some shoes. My dad repeatedly teases me about my affection for a well cobbled heel and sleek construction of leather. I am in need of a nice pair of heels that are big on style and made with more than a few strappy strands of leather. This one will probably be the easiest dream for me to make a reality...

I will be glad to be gone of the holidays and another borderline crappy year - when, pray tell will I have MY much deserved, full of happiness and all I ever dreamed of year???

Egads!

I'm jealous of your Roman adventure. I love Italian boys. But I hear everything is better in Belgium...

Yes, I'm sure Belgium is very sweet for ladies from the Bluegrass.

Roman boys - I can't wait. I hear they like their ladies blonde and full of curves. I am happy to oblige...

Sister, if you were going in any other month than September I would so be there with you and D-Money...I am so jealous. I actually have a t-shirt that says "I heart Italian Boys." Yummy.

and I'd also probably eat my way through that country...
