Would rather be landing in Los Angeles, but life happens.

Water Games

I try very hard not to harbor any hatred in my heart. Really. I know life is short--sometimes painfully, unfairly so. Therefore, I try to let go and let god, the whole nine...but it would be disingenuous to simply write a little "I [love] it, I [love] it not" note about today's topic.

Because really, I hate the person who thought Marco Polo would be a fun pool game, and would love to have a few words, and maybe a few minutes alone, with him or her.






In a crowded pool?

Where not everyone is playing? But still needs to endure the shrill, repetitive shouts of Marco, Polo while worrying about colliding with less-than-proficient underwater swimmers who are unable to see (even plus-sized) standing pool waders because--unlike the person who is IT and SHOULD keep their eyes closed but invariably cheats--they swim underwater with their eyes closed.

Nothing says relaxing afternoon at the pool like the repetitive screams of Marco, Polo by ill-behaved, strangers' children coupled with a ten year old swimming right into your spandex clad crotch.

Good times.


Down with Marco Polo. And whoever thought of that game: I hate you. With every cell in my body that is trying to relax.

Lots of white


Light dinners

Friday, July 6, 2012


Amy just posted a link to my blog in a post about that Boston getaway I mentioned In my last post so I'm feeling like I should have a more recent, maybe more lengthy, post for her readers who might stop by. But, quite frankly, with no disrespect to A Couple in the Kitchen readers, this singleton is in the throes of housework--some that I have neglected, some preparations for Deanna's visit-- that I'd like to get done in time to go out this afternoon with Amy for Happy Hour.

You can understand my dilemma, no? Thanks for that.

And thank you, too, Amy.

PS As much as I love my iPad, it certainly has limitations--particularly in trying to blog on it. I couldn't get the link where I wanted it and I can't upload photos. Forgive me the oddly placed link to A Couple in the Kitchen and inability to post a photo.

Off and Running...and Relaxed

Wow. I thought I'd start writing more once vacation started but this is only my first post. In my defense, I've been doing things--fun things-- since it started. It is vacation after all. I've been to the beach both weekends (different beaches) and I've been to Boston with Amy. I've been poolside with good books and out to dinner with good friends. In between I have gotten started on some house projects before too much time gets away from me (and before Deanna arrives next week to stay for a few days). I have been staying up later than normal and sleeping in when I can.

Meanwhile, my left knee has stopped hurting. I haven't had a migraine, nor have I felt my blood pressure surge. Not once in 11 days--even when the concierge didn't answer the phone.

I [heart] vacation.
