...for a different kind of girl

silent surburban girl releasing her voice, not yet knowing what all she wants to say about her life and the things that make it spin. do you have to be 18 to be here? you'll know when i know.

it's friday and i'm allowed to ramble...

so i have a bit of a love affair with quotations. if you're keyed into this yourself, you may have noticed my posts often are titled with something pulled from a lyric or some line that sticks in my head (i had to sit on my hands a second to avoid using the obvious lyric by the cure i could have used to title today's post). in giving you this marginal unveiling for a friday when i have nothing better to say, i'm in a bit of a toss up with what quote i love more so i'm leaving it in your capable hands to decide:

"once in his life, every man is entitled to fall in love with a gorgeous redhead!" - lucille ball


"i'm sure people see me as a screaming redhead with a big pair of boobs, but i like to think i've got things to say." - the true talent behind the former spice girls, geri (ginger spice) halliwell

you can see my quandary, no? heh...truth is, i'm more a brunette with a pair
of big boobs and something to say (though i'm telling you now if you've already forgotten from the opening paragraph because you've been cartoon eyeing the cleavage that this one won't be filled with raging commentary. sorry. i know that's likely what draws you here). sorry, also, that i'm not looking at you. the sun was beating in the window when i captured this awhile back and i'm a fan of the mystery redhead with alabaster skin and whatnot that came out of that quick toss-off shot. besides, it beats the hell out of that picture of me from junior high where i'm rocking the corduroys and badass attitude.
so step one in my effort to enhance myself in 2007 is now complete. i've registered for tap dance lessons and will start them on january 18. i see this being really ugly. walking is a skill i feel i've not handily mastered and now i'm going to be taught to shuffle, ball, change. i'm queasy at the thought, but plan to perservere (ok, really? all i want to do is make the fun tapping noises with my shoes...).
i've got a bit of a weakness growing for the discovery channel of late. really, 'i shouldn't be alive,' but 'surgery saved my life.' thank god for 'miracle cures'. now i'll be ready for 'shark week.' want to know the real reason i'm hooked on discovery now, though? 'dirty jobs with mike rowe.' hand to god, i have a raging girly boner for this guy. sexy, snarky, a lot of times half-naked. definitely not afraid to get dirty. yes, please. i swear to you, sometimes i sit in the dark and watch episodes over and over again. sadly, i've also youtubed the man. harmless, dirty fun. we all have our little quirks, right? (btw? "girly boners" will be featured on an upcoming episode of 'myth busters." keep your eyes open for dates and times!).
enough babbling for now. hopefully, though lucille b. is right, all you wonderful beauties who've made it this far have done so unscathed and haven't fallen into an all-encompassing, raging love for me after getting a glimpse of the vessel from which the kick ass magic happens. heh...unless you have some myths you'd like to bust yourselves, then you can just leave me a very nice comment (ok, yes, it's late...not 'nanette late,' but late nonetheless. give a girl a break...).

I too love quotes, they seem to sum up so information in such a few amount of words. As well, the Discovery Channel definitely sports some pretty cool shows, agreed.

I am so laughing because just last night my husband asked "So, are there any pictures of her rack anywhere? Does she do HNT?" And now, he will be so happy when he comes home ;)

Niiiiiiiiice rack.

I am slowly being poisoned to death by jealousy after a glimpse of your touchable ivory skin and radiant mane of hotness.

Tap is fun! You'll have a blast. And you'll be tempted to wear the shoes everywhere because the sounds you can make are great! ;)

I'm a complete quote-freak, DKG! I've got notebooks (ie, more than one) full of quotes I've admired here and there along the way.

And, you know, you're not helping me out much, posting pix of the KAR, and (shudder) talking about, you know, the 'girly' thing. . . (breathing into a paper bag)

Man, that Mike Rowe has a kickass rack!

Mike Rowe = LOVE HIM. Love, love, love him. It helps that he's a former opera singer, as if he needed help with my affections.

Oh, and sign me up for those tap-dance lessons! I've been wanting to take some myself ever since my mom denied me those oh-so-cool (oh-so-noisy) tap shoes when I was a young girl.

All hail the KickAssRack!!!! ; )

Love the hair, btw!!

And I ALSO have a crush on Mike Rowe. I like when he LOOKS dirty but I bet he smells totally rank, so in my fantasy he takes a shower first. ; )

Va-va-va-va-vavoom! Fabulous!

I like how you are mysteriously revealing yourself! One day, in about 2 years, I am going to check in and the full monty will be on display! ;)

And, certainly you caught Mike Rowe hosting Shark week, right? :P

Oh, girly-boners, yes indeed! I get them all the time reading blogs! But I see I can check out The Discovery Channel too . . .

And falling in love with you? Oh, yes! We redheads need to stick together!

you people are fabulous...can i just say that?

nocturnal - upon saying the above, i'm also going to add that i've had a secret crush on your site for some time now. i quite love how you say so much in one or two perfect lines. if you return here, i'm telling you now, i'll try not to be a lurker at your home, but your work sometimes leaves me to just sit and think. thank you for stopping thru.

savage - we can discuss this mutual admiration over giant steaks. are you cooking or am i?

biscuit - ah, i'm flattered, and laughing along with you. grab it while you can. you never know when the magic will stop! the rack bows in thanks, btw.

satan - ok, between the 'big steaming piles of temptation' and the 'radiant mane of hotness' today, i have to say you have me blissfully happy and i may have a little bit of a girly crush on you.

desmond - ah, and i may have a little bit of a crush on you, too! i was wondering how long it would take for someone to pick up on the 'girly boner' (please don't drop it), and you, you my very esteemed friend, picked it up and went with it. btw, my crush grew a bit more when you gave the kick ass rack it's own acronym.

ftn - forgive me. i've forgotten what you said. i've been staring at my pretend husband. mike does have a kick ass man rack, of course. i was going to put that one up, but he asked me to preserve some hint of his dignity, considering i was going to use the term 'girly boner' and all. i fought him on it, of course. there was some rolling around involved.

kelly - my adoration for mike has grown to such epic levels i have a friend who even says a word that sounds like 'mike' to me and they have to snap their fingers in my face to have me regain direct thought. heh..i've watched him sing opera (among other things!) on youtube, of course! and you can come tap with me anytime. i don't think my mom knew what to do with daughters, so i've never been exposed to dance or gymnastic classes. i wonder if you can tap to prince songs?

finished - ha! i always believe that it's good to have a dream!

taja - ah, see, in my fantasy, i'm in the shower with him. maybe that's just me! this is why i have to watch episodes over again. the first time i'm often pondering future cleanliness matters. by the third or fourth viewing, i'm finally learning something (like my pretend husband's fondness for double entendre). and thank you for the compliments (sometimes my hair rules me more than the rack).

nanette - ha! let me preserve some inkling of my fragile dignity! besides, there'd be warnings written for about a year before something so drastic. and sadly, i must have had another fantasy boyfriend at the time and missed mike hosting shark week. i've been hunting for it. yeah...he may soon eclipse bono in my eyes...

cherrie - the discovery channel has become my porn of late, so to speak. how delightful it is to learn something while also getting short of breath?

i did tap when i was in middle school. all the girls hated me cuz i was the best in the class and had the biggest boobs. but i hated it cuz my tits really got in the way - and you know, at that time it was all about the "training" bra. training, my ass. i was born ready. ;)

I think you've killed my love of Dirty Jobs. How am I supposed to watch that now without thinking about girly boners?

It's clear that we now need to see *you* and your kickass rack singing some opera on YouTube.

sure, i'll post video of me tap dancing *and* singing opera on youtube. however, you'll have to accompany me on guitar (what? are those panties i see about to be tossed?). but i want to do it somewhere nasty so the "kar" gets covered in whatever and my pretend husband saunters out to profile me (which is, of course, code for ravish me), and offer some snarky look to the camera while feeding me double entendres.

that's not too much to ask when it comes to entertaining the masses, no?

and, of course, all i really wanted you to do is think about girly boners. crossing that off my 'to do' list now...
