Blog challenge.

I already wrote my post for today, but there's a blog challenge at Two Peas today, and I wanted to do it, for once.

1. List the people from your past who you would like to reconnect with through Email.( if only you could find them...)

I can only think of one, and that's Brent Shrum from college. Well, there are a few people from high school I'm curious about, but...eh. I know I could track Brent down if I really wanted to...he's a reporter for a paper in Montana. I guess I need to make the effort!

2. List the companies you wish you owned.

I wish I owned Land's End because my first Owner's Decree would be to supply me with a hundred pairs of petite yoga pants in every color of the rainbow. Then I'd put them to work on petite jeans. Not "petite" as in five inches too long for my short legs.

(Can you tell I had a bad jeans-buying experience this week?)

3. List the things you do to defy aging.

I act as immature as possible. *smirk*
I sing along with the radio a lot...make up words for the fun of it...don't mess around with my face too much, as far as my skin goes...drink lots of water...color my gray hair when I remember...play with kids...
I guess there's a difference between aging mentally and aging physically--I don't want to do either one, but the mental part is the only thing I can do anything about.
(Things I should do to defy aging: learn a foreign language, walk, lift weights, eat more veggies, get good at crossword puzzles...)

4. List what you do to snap out of a bad mood.

Play music loudly and do some cleaning and/or organizing.

Ooooh, I want to do this.

I just blogged about this very topic... well, sort of. I'd like to reconnect with my adolescent pen pal Anne Kiely from Australia.


2. List the companies you wish you owned.
1. Wal-Mart-- for the profits alone.
2. Avenue -- so that I could look good all the time.. or until the profits from #1 kicked in and I could afford plastic surgery and/or a personal trainer
3. Amazon.com -- brilliant idea. Excellent selection. I want me some of that.

3. List the things you do to defy aging.
I watch "teeny bopper" tv shows and movies on occasion to kip hip with the slang and trends.
I listen to all kinds of current music and try not to get stuck on any one kind.
I hang out in a forum where the average poster is between 18-26.
I try not to think of the things I "should have" done. It's hard but I try not to live in the past as much as I can-- unless it's sharing a good memory.
Wear bright colored clothing.

Blog. Cry. Blog. Sleep.
