have you done yours yet?
we went today.
but They weren’t there.
at the place we said we would be – at 9AM – holding a (very small) bran muffin and a (not-so-small) coffee.
so we went somewhere else (thank goodness for national Chains of Accountancy Firms) and tried not to get cross or frustrated or realized we were now Late for something else by the time it was Done and *sighs* with a Parking Ticket (grrrrrrr).
but now it’s done.
for another year.
and in a way it was saying goodbye to 2012 and new york and other stuff that we don’t really like to go into here.
thank goodness for roses and chandeliers and tea and airmail-letters-from-berlin-with-butterfly-cut-outs-inside.
so I saw this sign downtown that said “Use Your Inside Voice Outside” – so very L.A ;-)
actually I heard a better one the other day.
really? do. tell.
“Use Your Spa Voice”.
oh. that Is Good.
and that’s what we’ll be doing at 6PM – using our Spa Voice – because we’ll be at The Spa – the taxes and the 2012 goodbyes and Everything have made us Terribly Tense.
but the roses and the tea and the chandeliers and the airmail-from-berlin-with-cutout-butterflies Truly Helped.
btw (as the Young people say) – we have Definitely started something with the #weadoreachandelier - most of the ones below have been either taken by yours Truly or tagged with @teamgloria so we can visit it and get deliciously excited and tag it #weadoreachandelier – BUT – recently – we’ve Noticed that some people are tagging Their chandeliers independently *raisedeyebrow* – it’s ALIVE.
yes! That Sam McKnight……#blimey.
who cares about financial stresses when one can gaze into the twinkling splendo(u)r of a chandelier.
and get to use one’s Spa Voice too.
