So, when you read books that take place outside of the Americas, do you read them in that accent? I’m still reading The Girl On the Train (holy crap it’s getting good), but I keep forgetting it’s in England! Aside from the fact that the word London is mentioned in every other paragraph. But I still just read it in my own American voice. Sometimes I even read it valley girl-style.
Not really, I don’t.
But it’s funny how when I remember the characters are speaking in accents, I try to read it in that accent, and then immediately Scott and Tom get way hotter to me. Like, I don’t even care who the killer is, if they’re British, they’re hot.
Without giving anything away, I’m right in the middle, and things are getting straight barmy.
OH I have a question! Is this an English thing, or a typo? The line went something like this, “If he thinks I’m going to ignore him, he’s got another think coming.” Think, not thing. Sure, Dr. Seuss can get away with it, but is this a real think? I mean thing? I mean think?
Speaking of accents, today I’m being interviewed for a podcast! It’s all about finding your own voice in blogging. Too bad I know nothing about that. (rah raaaaah)
I’ll let you know when it’s live, if you wanna take a listen. Then you’ll find out that I don’t, in fact, have a southern accent. Hey, I may even bust out in song!
Just kidding I would never do that to you.
Except for the fact that I would totally do that to you.
Last night I went to an essential oil party at my fran’s gorgeous house. It was lovely! But I had to refrain myself from drinking too much and saying things like, “wanna get oily?” or “oil me up” to complete strangers. I thing I did okay. I mean think.
We made pretty things like bath scrubs, all-purpose spray, pain rollers and antibacterial gel. I already use essential oils in a lot of my daily riff raff, like cleaning supplies, candles, linen sprays and room sprays. I even just dab a teeny amount of patchouli on my wrists and neck as a perfume! #hippielikethat
I DID learn a new trick though. And this is going to bore you to death, but I’m going to tell you anyway. Natalie has this mild eczema-style patch on her back, and I’ve been putting regular moisturizer (like cetaphil) on it, and it’s not helping. My girl Amanda told me her boy Theo has the same issue, and she’s been using a tiny drop of lavender oil mixed with a carrier oil (like coconut) and rubbing that on the patch, and it’s basically gone. SO TRYING THAT TODAY. Sorry to scream.
Do you guys have any other baby weird skin tips or tricks or wizardry you could share? That is, if I haven’t put you to sleep by now.
I hosted a play date this week and made this here cornbread and you fiercely need it in your life. You’re going to be like WHAT. You did WHAT. Say WHAT. Do WHAT.
It’s regular ol’ Jiffy, with a handful of halved cherry tomatoes and chunks of brie cheese in it! BRIE. Oh, and dried oregano. I am telling yewwwwwwaaaa. Unexpected, a little fancy, straight marvelous. You could even serve it with blistered tomatoes and parsley right on top. Maybe even more slices of brie. Definitely more slices of brie. All the brie.
Make it for your Oscar party on Sunday! Do you have predictions? I just love judging, errr watching everyone on the red carpet. It’s my favorite thing!
I mean think.
I mean thing.
