Eat, Pray, Love 12:29 a.m. 2006-03-19
I have started working on my website - only 24 more days to go with the Dreamweaver trial. During class Thursday night, I did an outline - or mind map of the structure of the site. I need to put it into Inspiration and to build my folders full of pictures. Dreamweaver is a bit tricky - I may need to study up a bit first.
What else? Today, I slept a whole lot. I found out (at 9:15) that I had an appointment at 9:15 - my husband forgot to tell me. Luckily for me, I was able to push back the appointment to 10:45. The massage was great, but it kicked my butt. I went to eat sushi, wrote in my journal, then returned home, took a hot shower, then went back to bed.
I just got finished watching "The Life and Death of Peter Sellers" - the HBO special starring Geoffrey Rush. It was good. I was a huge Peter Sellers fan. Yes, The Pink Panther was great, but I have fond memories of a couple of obscure films - one called The World of Henry Orient and the other called The Bobo. It was a very interesting film about him - man, but he was a jerk.
Let's see - I have been visited by a couple of possible opportunities. First, I had a surreal communication through E-Bay by Zarela, the designer and brains behind the Zarela Casa line distributed by Wal-Mart. I may have scared her off, as I did not, at first, believe it was her. The message was sent by an E-Bay ID, and offered to put me in touch with her distributor, because I sell so much of her items online. The offer was to buy some of the discontinued items. I may do so, if only the Papel Picado shower curtain.
I also have started inquiring about having shrine frames made for me. I have put a profile on a website called TradeKey.com. The first day, I received about 5 or 6 e-mail offers - all from China, only one for what I wanted. Maybe. I am supposed to send the company pictures and measurements of the frames, and they will send me a quote. I will have to see what they charge, and what their minimum order is. If I really wanted, I guess I could rent a warehouse to store baking dishes, frames, and Zarela items! Wow!
I am watching Saturday Night Live and the musical guest is Shakira - a truly inspiring ESOL story. I kind of like that song she is performing! Shakira rocks.
Okay, I am soooo loving my current listen - Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. I heard a passage so powerful that I went to Barnes and Noble and bought the book. I will be buying it for all of my friends as soon as it hits paperback - I am trying to economise, after all. I have to say that listening it to CD, read by the author, is a great way to get it. Okay, everybody, go out and buy it.
I don't know if I'm ready yet to hit an ashram in India, but my massage therapist today suggested yoga, saying that it was very much like massage. I have yet to see the similarity - but I do love massage!!!!
As far as "eat" - I could go to Paris (just did that!), or - hey!!! - Barcelona. I love Barcelona. But as far as good food is concerned, I would not have to go much farther than Louisiana. I also did a little surfing on Santa Fe. Never been there. Could be fun!
I think it's time to go to bed...
