Elf on a shelf!

It's December 9th and I have zero, zip, nadda - not one Christmas Decoration up!
I usually don't put any up at home, after all it's just me and Daisy. I really don't think she minds.

BUT!  I always decorate my restaurant and art center.  Every year my family's Christmas is held at the tea room, and this year we're hosting a Christmas Cabaret at the center.  I'm pretty sure decorations are in order!

So, I have got to get off the stick and get things pulled together.  The weather's been descent so I can't use that as an excuse.  Now watch... there 'll probably be an ice storm since I'm planning to do it this weekend!

I don't need an elf on the shelf!
I need a genie in a bottle! 

Wish me luck.  This year may be the scaled down version of holiday decor.

Now don't even get me started on the Christmas present thing - or the lack of. 
That's another fine mess!

Speaking a foreign language!

I've always wanted to speak a foreign language! In school I tried German that didn't go well, so I thought I'd try Spanish.  Geez I may know a whole 4 words in each language.  Needless to say those classes brought down the old GPA. 

So, as I got older I thought, French that's such a romantic language.  I want to learn French.  Have you seen those advertisements... Learn to speak a foreign language in so much time?  They may work for some people but for me... all I did was spend money on cds that sit on a shelf and remind me that I still can't speak a foreign language! 

Although!  I may have added four more words to my multicultural vocabulary.  Let me see 4 words in German, 4 in Spanish and 4 in French - I'm just about ready for that international vacation!

I probably should give up.

But, there is one more language that I really need to learn and that's the language of hair. 
Oh you haven't heard of that?  I'm sure you know that language.   That's language of when you go to get your hair cut and can't seem to make them understand what you want, not even when you have a picture!   Like when I took in a photo of a cute trendy style and left looking like the shrunken head guy on Beetlejuice!

I swear before I die I will concur that language if no other!
