The Possibilities Are Endless

Senility is rapidly approaching. Today I stood up with my coffee mug in my hand. Then I was wondering why. Did I want more coffee? Did I want to wash my mug? Did I want to let Winston outside? (who still won't use the dog door) Did I need to use the restroom?

Why was I standing up? I eventually did all of the above and more, but I'm still mystified as to why I found myself standing in the middle of the family room.

Nicole Richie is a fashion icon with a timeless free-spirited style that has become one of her trademarks. Her clothes are contemporary, with an aesthetic that's also beautifully rooted in the past. Fluid fabrics with boho prints are both elegant and easy to wear. The intricate details within her clothes take you traveling through time and around the world. Now, Nicole brings this sense of ethereal to QVC.

When did Nicole Richie become a fashion icon? I thought she was Paris Hilton's stooge. I vaguely remember rumors of her being bulimic and perhaps hazarding her unborn child's health. I never thought of her as a fashionista.

Whatever. I guess if you're rich enough you can remake yourself at will (cough, Kardashian, cough)

Gravity Always Wins

Got dumped by a spook yesterday. No injuries to speak of although my neck is a little tender. I always manage to smack my head when I fall. This makes twice for this helmet so I probably should look at replacing it.

This was a slow motion spook in that I almost managed to sit it out. I fell off on the left side of the horse and my right stirrup ended up completely across the saddle. So glad my foot came out. Can you imagine having your right foot hung up on the left side of the horse while the rest of you is hitting the ground? He stood stock still and my trainer said his eyes were as big as saucers as he realized what he had done. She actually had to push him away from me as he didn't want to budge from my side.

We were getting close to the end of the lesson but she had me get back on him so he wouldn't think he got rewarded and put away when he dumped someone. I did a bunch of leg yields and called it good.

I self-medicated with a couple of glasses of wine after I got home. Gotta keep those muscles relaxed...

My Dogs Are Morons

I had a dog door installed today. The door itself was not inexpensive and I additionally paid to have two men install it. My two idiots are afraid of it. The instruction sheet suggests using food or a favorite toy and holding the flap up and out of the way as the dog gets used to going through the opening. Um, nope. They don't even want to go in or out the doorway in the regular fashion because that darn flap is so terrifying. I foresee a long struggle ahead for us. I shall persevere.

The End of the World As We Know It

Alternatively Titled, "The Times They Are a-Changin'"

I just saw Bob Dylan doing a car commercial.
