A little scatterbrained.

23 May

Is scatterbrained a word?  I was typing it out, put a space between “scatter” and “brained” but even that didn’t look right.  Although, what I have written out doesn’t look all that right either.  (Note: this is how I’ve been all day).  When I decided I wanted to write something out tonight I couldn’t figure out what I’d start with or where I’d go.  So here goes.

First!  Can I just tell you how honestly heartbroken I am that House is over?  Obviously, you clued in by my last post House, Hugh Laurie & heartbreak.  I feel, though, that I should explain to you why.  Well, reiterate why.  Besides that it was a show unlike any other, sarcastic asshole being the main character, a show that played for eight long years and questioned every viewers ideals for even remotely liking a sarcastic asshole.  Gregory House wasn’t all that bad.  If you haven’t seen the final episode of the series then you might want to stop reading here.  When, I thought he was dead, when that building exploded, I was frantic.  How could they end eight years just like that!  Luckily, they didn’t.  When House sent Wilson that text saying “shut up you fool”, I knew he wasn’t really dead.  House did the nicest, kindest most genuine thing he could have done.  He let everyone believe he really did die in that inferno in order to spend Wilson’s last few months together.  So, people, this is why we love him.  Deep down, EVERYONE, believed that there was some good in House.  At least, I know I did.  I will admit this, I cried like a seven year old girl who has lost her favourite Barbie.  Not at the end of the show, but the beginning.  WAH!

Second!  I was going to do a chevron bracelet tutorial, like I said I would, but honestly I just don’t have the time to take the pictures and explain how to.  This will have to wait a little while longer.  If you can’t wait, I am really sorry :(,but our dear friend Google can help.

Third!  I was on Pinterest again last night, as usual, and came by an absolutely easy and delicious recipe for pistachio and rose water ice cream.  Yep, the picture above.  Doesn’t that just look and sound dreamy?  I literally went “oh..my…god” as I saw the picture for it and almost died when I read the recipe.  S-I-M-P-L-E.   Rather than typing the recipe and preparation out, here’s the link – Javane’s Kitchen.  Check out her other recipes, if you like (or as I do, love) Persian cuisine, you’ll fall for her recipes.

NEXXXXT…..I came by this app called Inkflow a few days ago.  I’m one of those people who LOVES to doodle and actually write out notes.  I’ve tried a bunch of different apps in the last few years of owning an iPhone and nothing has quite compared to this.  It’s not entire too sensitive and very very easy to control.  There is a free version and a paid version.  Give it a shot if you’re like me.  Click the photo or the link below for more info :).




Born in the wrong generation

20 May

Have you ever thought you were born in the wrong generation?  I can’t help but think I was.  There’s just something about 1930s to 1950s that gets my heart beating.  The music, the clothes, the art, the cars!  Ah!

It’s funny thinking about it… while tapping away on my laptop, checking my texts ever two seconds, waiting for that certain someone to text back (yeah, I’m a total sob).  But seriously!  All day, today, I’ve been working on math home and listening to good ol’ rockabilly tunes, big bands and swing.  It seems to have got me thinking more and more about the times where things were slightly more simple.  Mind you, were they?  I mean, heck, people had to actually SEE each other, pick up a pen and paper and WRITE.  Holy moly ;).  I don’t think I’ve written an actual letter in forever.

Nostalgia is beautiful.

Which brings  me to my next thought.  Do I really think I was born in the wrong era?  I have to say, yes and no.  If it weren’t where we are now, I wouldn’t be able to listen to avariety of music.  Which wouldn’t really help my silly music A.D.D.  However, then it gets me thinking, would I even have music A.D.D. back then?  I mean sure, there were different genres then too but how many of them would have been at my finger tips?

It’s just such an odd thought because you find yourself wanting to be there, dying to be there but could any of us leave where we are now (if we could) and go back to whatever era we are in love?  Would we love it the same in that case?  It reminds me of a Owen Wilson and Rachel McAdams movie – Midnight in Paris.  They bring up this very same thought through out the movie.  Well, Owen Wilson’s character does.  I, highly, recommend it.  It’s almost got a dark humour to it.  Anywho…

Just food for thought.  I can tell you right now, I would miss the hell out of my iPhone and laptop.  Oh and PVR.  Can’t forget about PVR.  If it weren’t for that, I’d never be able to watch my shows ;).

Which now brings me to my other random “thing” of the day.

Rather than baking or cooking today, to go with my Nostalgic Nancy feeling, I decided to make little bracelets for my sister.  DIY chevron bracelets, in all black, with a teal bead clasp.  They turned out super cute.  Thank you Pinterest, once again!  I’ll do a tutorial when I decide to get different colour embroidery thread – it’s just far too annoying with black.

So there ya have it – my long weekend Sunday, spent in an entirely different world :).
