10 Things I Hate About You

"I hate the way you talk to me
and the way you cut your hair
I hate the way you drive my car
I hate it when you stare

I hate your big dumb combat boots
and the way you read my mind
I hate you so much that it makes me sick
it even makes me rhyme

I hate the way you're always right
I hate it when you lie
I hate it when you make me laugh
Even worse when you make me cry

I hate the way you're not around
and the fact you didn't call
But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you
Not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all."

ahh..the holidays.

christmas this year was better than the last. we were all definately spoiled this year by each other. some of my top favorite gifts? :

10 Things I Hate About You on blu-ray.

Blue mini alarm clock.

Teal scarf, eye shadow, and rose compact mirror.

Bottle of wine and wine stopper.

An old giftcard that was my moms for a spa (which i spent on makeup).

And my most fave? A giclee print of Aubrey Beardsley's "The Peacock Skirt" from my dad. It's one of many illustrations by Beardsley from Oscar Wilde's Salome, all gorgeous.

this year was great. great family time, great gifts, no drama or worries, and a wonderful dinner :) but i'm glad it's over! now, the new year is upon us, and hopefully new changes, bigger changes, for me and my family.

hope everyone had a happy holiday as well!!

there's a place i like to visit when i'm on vacation.
i like to sit on a bench, look over the chainlink fence and gaze at the ocean.
sometimes people will jog, walk, or ride by alone, in groups, with animals.
my mind always clears when i'm in this place, and i could sit there for hours.
i have no worries in this place, nowhere to be, no real-life problems.
no matter the time of year, overcast days, bright sunny days, or chilly nights,
this place is my haven.
