I'm too young to be a widow, but I am. It is what it is -- though I desperately dislike that cliche.
I'm a writer -- for example, I've written everything from song lyrics to murder mysteries as fundraisers. Also, I was on stage in community theatre productions. (C'mon over, I'll show you my reviews...)
If you watch the DVD "Smart People" that they filmed here in Pgh., you'll see me behind Sarah Jessica Parker's shoulder in the airport scene. The Asst. Director even complimented me! I have amazing talent for standing still and looking like I'm waiting for my luggage.
I am lean, mean, peachy-keen, and ...
I love to travel and see/do new things. There are very few -- if any -- places I can think of that I wouldn't go at the drop of a hat.
Books: "Lords of Discipline"
"Atlas Shrugged" Many, many more.
~Movies: "Room With a View"
"Shawshank Redemption" "Crying Game" "Valley Girl" "Sex, Lies & Videotape" and "Ordinary People" ...
Again: many, many more. But few where things blow up. Especially heads. Decapitations disturb me.
~70s & 80s pop
~David Cassidy = Sigh. (Don't judge me...) I went to his concert; front row center seats, baby! He held my hand and sang to me!
~Broadway show tunes... because there's always a line or song from a show that applies to life so I can burst into song -- at any (in)appropriate moment.
But I like a little R&B, classical... etc... since I played piano many years.
~Steamed shrimp -- served on the deck of a pub along the Chesapeake
~Filet mignon and grilled mushrooms
~Hot roast beef sandwiches and gravy w/mashed taters
(Yumm... now I'm hungry)
~My big cushy leather sofa.
~Computer with lightning-fast internet service.
~Heated car seats
But I digress.
Fridays? Hanging out. (Not always with a masseuse... or my minions, for that matter.) With friends, at home. Or a movie. Dinner out, maybe. Not so much the bar scene. Every so often is okay, but I don't drink too much ... and it's been a few years -- er, QUITE a few -- since I last danced on a table!
Life is short.
We should make it count.
