Miscellanous Monday

This picture is a still from the movie Under the Tuscan Sun. (I got it from Hooked On Houses) I like it and thought it might be make an interesting painting. I seem to have a thing for the type of robe she is wearing. (Surely there must be a better word to use than robe, but it escapes me at the present. I'm so not into "fashion.") I'm guessing it comes from seeing some old 1930s movies with glamerous women wearing them. When I've tried wearing one I would just get the sleeves caught on door knobs and skillet handles. I would also get the sleeves wet by either drifting it across a full cup of coffee or over a sink full of water.

I'm getting over a messy head cold. Now I may be just dealing with allergies. Colds and allergies are basically the same, except one is contagious and the other isn't. Messy, either way.

My car is sitting on a flat. I'm not sure how I'm going to deal with this situation yet. If someone had their shit together they would have already joined AAA.

Weekend television programming (network channels) really sucks.

I wonder if my camera still works.

Time for my second cup of coffee.

The robe looks like a kimono. I have something similar my husband brought home from Japan 22 years ago. I love it and it's beautiful, but you're right, it's not very practical.

Hope you feel better and your tire gets fixed.

that kind of robe says, "you may bring it to me, as i am not doing anything but being catered to."

wish I had one.

BWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA That's it!! That's why I like them... its the 'bring it to me' essense.

And Thx to Rudee for bringing the word to me. Yes! As soon as I read "kimono" I knew that was the word I needed! Senior moment.

Hi CC, hope you're feeling better. I just got over a head cold. Ya have to wonder where all the snot comes from, don't you? LOL. I know what you mean about the kimono. Even my dressing gown (robe?) gets soggy if I don't have the sleeves rolled right up. Hope a knight in shining armour sorts your car out for you soon.

That would make a nice painting... when are you going to do it?

I need a robe with half sleeves, cause I always get the long ones wet!

Sorry about your flat....Hope good news is around the corner... I just had to put a new radiator in my Nissan... it's getting older like me, and is having its problems...The one thing I surely like is no car payment. So, I'll keep getting it fixed I guess.

Hope that nasty cold is on the way out!
