Small Homage

So, I’ve poked fun at Gwen Stefani in the past. Not for any lack of love, because truly I think she’s lovely. However, none of us are perfect, and as I know well, even bombshell geniuses blunder now and then.

These “Rocket Girl” bags have a strangely familiar appeal that I can’t seem to place, but I hope dear Bawidamann is flattered by this coincidence, too.

PS: and Gwen, if rumors are true, congrats on the new bun in the oven!

Band-Aid2006 was the year I took a few sticks of dynamite and blew my life sky high. 2007 was spent huddled up to avoid the fallout from that explosion. But in 2008 – I will start to rebuild my life.

Though I have not emerged from the rubble unscathed, an amazing team of supporters helped me recover much faster than I could have imagined. There simply aren’t sufficient words to express my gratitude.

Now that I’m on the other side of this mess, I almost don’t know where to begin. After spending the last week or so mulling over what I should tackle when, I came to the sad realization that money matters, so finding a new job is going to be priority one.

This is the first year in over a decade that I’ve looked forward to living. Perhaps my life is finally starting to turn a corner, and maybe, just maybe, it’s starting to resemble something that I’ve built deliberately instead of something that just… happened. Let’s see how it goes.
