I love to travel and meet cool people.. Book me a flight? Plan a roadtrip? Hop on a ferry or float-plane and come visit me here on my cute Canadian island?.. I'd absolutely love that. If we like, we'll hit replay and annex ourselves up into a mini-gang. You bring the music, k?
I am having a love affair with yellow. Such a galling colour. It takes 3 coats whereas any other shade politely requests one; ahhh, three distinct occasions to fuck up the trim. I've tried to suppress it, this raw desire for yellow.. but as I look around my place and see all its satisfied shades of amber, yolk, lemon, butter, squash, mustard, sunflower, saffron, citrine, sand, canary, custard.. I feel a sun-stained grin swell up and spill out, wondering all the while how I can be in love with such a frank and amoral tint. Gee, I do love that dress.
Off to buy a Gideon's bible from the thrift store. Will place it on the dashboard of Skate. I'm hoping it might help with the speeding tickets.. Update 3 hours later** ..ok, so I stole the bible.. 0_o geez! have I no shame!!?? I appall myself sometimes, but I just couldn't part with $7 bucks. Being Dutch trumped being good. It's very pretty. Virgin white leather with a thin silver cross embossed on its cover, silver-foiled edges and three white ribbony page-marker thingys. It's perfect. I'm gonna repent now.. on my knees.. The song that started it all: Corb Lund
ok, Actual Self Summary: I took up in the mountains, foothills and prairies of Canada free-ranging the high alpine and alongside rivers I could drink from. Rode an intractable pinto horse named Warpaint for miles and miles and miles. Slept outside. Skied deep in winter and crept up tight cols beyond glaciers in summer loving steep-slope speed. I broke a lot of bones and hitchhiked back from wherever. It was exceptional.
Now I'm a coastal Canadian girl: rocky beaches, rivers, urban kickin' and taking road trips in my lil Skate. Hopefully keeping bones intact, but still jones for speed.
Dutch background rendered down to pigtails, a few vestigial swear words and double-salted licorice. (update: pigtails gone, it's short these days)
The only sentence of Dutch I can remember is: "Je bent een stout meisje en je moet een pak op je broek!!!" Which translates roughly to: "You are a naughty girl and you need a spanking!!" ..I think that's pretty funny.
The other phrase, which I heard just as often is:
"A heel lief meisje," which means, "A real sweet girl."
Those two phrases summarize me pretty well..
