i believe that if i squinch my eyes up tight and think really, really hard, that you will actually be able to tell that i am channeling nancy drew

seven of us went to see nancy drew today....it was oh! so! fab! .......i loved it.....it was actually the best movie i've seen in ages .....i actually seldom go to movies...but even if i'd seen every single solitary one out this year, i believe that i would still be telling you that nancy drew was oh! so! fab!

and because you are wondering.....
here are the ways i am SO like nancy drew
1. i have a mac (nancy uses her for all manner of important things)
2. i love my mac (she sleeps with hers in the bed, not sure i love mine THAT much)
3. my ipod, like nancy's, is fake coolness, it doesn't really fit me at all, the two guys in my life do most of my ipod tweeking and the littlest girl in my house actually thinks the ipod should belong to her, not me...santa's error in stocking aim (nancy drew has an ipod but it doesn't quite fit her retro self)
4. i LOVE headbands....i believe i've worn one EVERY day this summer...my cool friend, tricia, got me on them...but i'm pretty sure if she'd known ahead of time that i'd start wearing them every day that she would have never gotten me started (nancy has some SWEET headbands.....very perky....mine are a titch more bohemian...or, i'm delusional...not sure which)
5. i just asked my son how i am LIKE nancy drew and he looked at me like i had three heads.....just showing, nancy and i are both surrounded by people who love us because of our quirkiness, not in spite of it (no, you may not email me and argue this point)
6. we both drive vehicles a bit past their prime (honda keeps sending me mail telling me that it's time to trade in or trade up....but i got it a week before sophie was born and am thinking i can at least hold out til she's ten......she's six and a half now....nancy's car is way older......no andy, i don't need a new car, i want to be like nancy drew....i'm driving this one til it is retro)
7. enthusiasm..... when i get an idea into my wee little brain, i have trouble letting it go......nancy just can't give up her sleuthing....
8. nancy paints a picture, based on a famous one......my mona lisa is her george washington......
9. nancy doesn't wear heels....not suitable for running from the bad guys..and chasing down clues.....from now on when someone asks why i won't and don't wear heels, i'll mention channeling nancy drew......
10. nancy drew has a little bit of artsy crafty girl in her (disparagingly called martha stewart) ......and i, certainly, have that artsy crafty bit in me too.......

so, on this, my art blog, i am sorry to say, i've not arted today......i had a playdate with allison and her kids.......we went to lunch and a movie...and right when i got home our power went out!!! ....and my windowless basement art room was too pitch black for anything!!

But, have you ever had to say, "Just a minute while I diffuse this bomb..."?

no....i've never had the occasion to say it...but should that very occasion arise, i wll certainly say those exact words...and i'll go twitchy twitchy with my fingers so everyone will know i'm talking in quotes...and those close to me, like you, will CERTAINLY know i'm quoting my hero, nancy drew......

I haven't seen the NEW Nancy Drew movie, but back in the day.....way back in the day....when we visited my grandpa's house I'd sneak away to the attic to read every {original} Nancy Drew book up there! I think Roberta read all the Nancy Drew books, too! Sounds like I need to get my bod to a movie (would be the first I've gone to since....last summer, "The Lake House").
