I have a secret.  Not a very exciting.  I am getting old.  I try and ignore it but I am.  I have a question regarding aging.  Is insomnia a side-effect of aging?  It has to be because I cannot sleep at all lately.  Last year I couldn't get enough sleep, this year I can't sleep.  Nothing to keep me awake, I was just awake.  Oh well, hopefully today I'll be able to sleep.

Otherwise, life is good.  No complaints.  Nothing exciting but nothing horrible either, kind of in limbo right now. If my brain were working perhaps I'd have a funny story to tell or at least a weird one to tell but nothing.  I mean Miley twerked, Assad used chemical weapons on the citizens of Syria, and hundreds of babies have been born in the past 24 hours but other than that a pretty boring life.  On those topics here's my take:
  1. The UN needs to pull it's shit together.  This is not an issue that only the US should worry about, everyone needs to step it up.  When we watch silently as other's are killed in the name of money and power, we are just as guilty of those deaths.
  2. Yes Miley, you are legally an adult.  Now we wait for your brain to catch up.  And no that's not feminism, so thanks for setting your generation of women back several decades.
  3. Welcome all you new babies!  Enjoy what we have left you!  Sorry about the mess.

Sauna Images

East end: The campaign has been designed to have an east London feel, which Beckham says takes him back to his roots

David Beckham has just done a modelling stint for H&M.  It's pretty awesome.  There were pictures of him with a little bit more clothing on him but I felt that would be an injustice to everyone.

He looks so upset doesn't he or maybe sultry?  I've always wondered whether models feel silly after posing for these type of images.  Maybe he's upset that someone is in his non-steamy sauna because obviously he didn't have enough time to make it steamy with his piercing gaze.  I would not be able to stop giggling if someone was saying, "Give me sexy!  Yes angry hot face!".  Can you just imagine it?  I have enough trouble smiling without smirking or looking like Quasimodo in pictures.  Good thing that Beckham can take a picture without looking like Quasimodo :)

Midnight Vacuum Sessions

Well hello people :)

As you may have noticed the whole thing around here has shifted.  I really was trying to find a totally cool, unique, pretty, captivating, enticing, etc.  blog template but you know what?  I don't have time to reinvent the wheel or rediscover fire.  I'm busy.  Instead I have chosen something that looks a little like me.  No I do not look like a wine glass but on any given weekend I may contain the same contents as a wine glass.  Fitting.  I have also been obsessed with the color orange for some time, thus orange.  You may be wondering about the new title, let me enlighten you.  While browsing pinterest on one of the few days I have time for that (stop rolling your eyes) I came upon a pin which defined Saudade.  I didn't believe it so I looked it up and turns out I like the definition Wikipedia used.  It is Portuguese, has no literal translation because it conveys an emotion.  You know there are words or phrases in any language which convey a wealth of information and emotion but it just can't be translated into another language.  It's something you have to understand and feel deep inside.  Well this roughly means a memory of a past experience, a past love, or just the past  It doesn't have to be sad but it is a way of reliving those wonderful moments.  I guess a blog to me means that, you recount the past if you haven't written for a while (me) or also imagining the feelings of the future and what that can mean to you.  The point being that I loved it and felt it captured something I've been thinking/feeling about writing.

Now let me do some recounting.

Vacuum Lady/MotherI haven't done much personally but I seem to still be busy.  I had a guest over the summer (they weren't allowed to use my tupperware because of crazy lawsuit last year) and he left the second week of August.  Actually for the week following his departure I did all the things I couldn't do while he was there.  I danced like a crazy person in my jammies while listening to deafening music.  I may or may not have walked around in my undies.  I definitely ate more junk food, the waist don't lie.  I slept in.  I went to bed late.  The TV was on way too loud the whole time and I didn't wash my dishes.  Then this weekend I cleaned up and this week have stopped eating crap food.  You know the roomie was nice, didn't complain about anything, but as he was considerate, I think it only fair I be considerate of him.  So that meant none of the above.  Yup, no midnight vacuuming in pj's.  (Don't pretend you've never vacuumed at midnight, I know you have.)

Other than that, works been rather busy and I guess I just didn't have time or energy to write.  Oh yeah, also the fact that my computer takes too long to boot up so I just browse the internet on my Kindle.  As the Kindle doesn't have a keyboard, I don't write at home very much.  Yes it has ruined me.
