The dreaded month
Over the course of my life so far, every really bad thing that has ever happened to me, has happened in February. I won't go into those bad things, because that is my own closet of demons, but I just wanted everyone to know that I hate this month, and I am counting down the days until it is over. So let's focus on the positive: I am going to buy an Ella Fitzgerald CD today....and get my nails done - maybe a nice shade of pink for the upcoming (stupid-frigging) Valentines Day. I hate Valentines Day. I have my reasons. I'm also thinking, maybe a nice candlelight bath. I am going to pamper myself this month, and maybe, JUST MAYBE, I can have the first good February. We should all live by this motto: "Treat yourself like a princess, cuz ain't no one else goin' to!"
I took a friend out to dinner last night for her birthday to a place in downtown Seattle called Marco's Supperclub. We had a fabulous time - ate great food and listened to jazz softly playing in the background. (hence the Ella Fitzgerald CD-buying) It was girl's night out - no Superbowl for me.
