How to Spend $1000 in an Hour

Standard

Cat and Cannon Bookstore, Lake City, Seattle

If I had a thousand dollars to spend in an hour, I’d go to the nearest book store and stock up on novels, biographies and research books. I love all books and the smell of paper and glue make me happy. I could spend $1000.00 in a book store before Samantha the witch from Bewitched could wriggle her nose.

Funny Sign

Standard

When I was in Burbank, California, I went to this donut shop twice. It’s called Donut Prince. They have the  freshest, best donuts I’ve ever tasted. They have a wall of photos in the place with lots of celebrities that have been there.  This sign is on the window.  The lawyer in me loves it. 

Sunrise vs. Sunset

Standard

Sunrise in Florida

I love sunset better than sunrise but I get to see some beautiful sunrises as I drive to Tallahassee once a month for court. I have to leave home around five am and it’s interesting to see what time the sun comes up- it varies based on the time of year. It’s awesome most of the time.

My Worst Prom Date

Standard

2nd floor windows

It was a prom. My parents were out of town. The guy I went with was a former boyfriend but we’d broken up when I found out he went out with another girl when I was on vacation in California. We already had prom plans, so we went anyway. It was awkward as he wanted to rekindle the relationship and I didn’t. When he took me home, he insisted on waiting until my parents opened the door. I’d forgotten my key and knew there was no one home and the parents would not be coming to the door. I FINALLY got him to leave. I knew the front window lock was broken and I could climb in that way. The windows were the same length as the door but were split paned, so I had to get on my knees to crawl in. So, here I was with my butt in the air, in a formal gown, crawling in the window and just KNOWING he was going to just drive around the block and come back. In retrospect, when I think about my frantic, speedy crawl through that window, all the while worried that he’d come back and find my parents gone and try to take advantage of that situation, I crack up. What a sight that would have been for him to see.

My First Album

Standard

The Osmonds 0711730001

My first Album I bought with my own money was an Osmond Brothers Album- I can't remember the name of the Album but it was the one with "One Bad Apple" on it. I lived in Virginia and bought it at the grand opening of a Zayre's store. It was under five dollars since my allowance at the time was $5.00 a week.
