My newest eye candy addiction!
Man, being sick on a Saturday is the pits. Got sick early last Sunday evening, thought for SURE that I'd be feeling better by the bloody weekend. Guess this is the flu. So, since my Saturday has been stolen from me by disease carrying toddlers out to destroy the planet, I felt that I needed to spoil myself today.
Started the day with a late breakfast at my favorite Saturday watering hole, Hob Nob Hill. I go every weekend, and if I am too sick and spreading germs, I don't care. Their breakfast is totally worth it. I mean, they spoil you the old fashioned way....if you order an iced tea, they bring you a little plate with a doilie and a chilled ice tea spoon. If you order soup, you get the plate and doilie with a hot spoon. It's like having your grandmother fuss over you. The waitresses all wear their oldie uniforms. They all know you by name...but when you are someone like me who insists on showing up and bothering them every Saturday, they get used to you. They will be on the Food Network (channel 67) this Monday night at 7pm on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. I am setting my DVR. If you live in San Diego, you HAVE to try this restaurant, it's been there forever.
Since I am feeling like #$%&, I came home from breakfast and took a nap. Got up at 4pm and sat my fat self down in my pj's for a dose of my newest guilty pleasure, "Cranford"...BBC period production. Hilarious, and eye candy to boot. I love love love the BBC. I love British television, British people, British accents, British history....everything but their food probably. Except the scones. And tea. Had some hot lemon tea with honey to go with my Cranford. Did a little tiny bit of work on my Alice, but she's been a persnickety teenager this last week and doesn't want her 'mother' pestering her. She just wants to be left alone, damn it. Found a chair for her on ebay but some other needy soul feels they also need this same exact chair and is annoyingly driving up my bid.
So I did what I always do, when my dolls get moody and don't want me touching them. I leave them unfinished and start another one just to piss them off. My newest child is one I haven't tried before, she's a little African American girl who I have already named Hope in honor of our new leader. I have her little face pretty much worked out, and her dress fabric is Civil War reproduction white with blue and red print. I think she will be sort of like an Izannah, but not quite. I don't think I could pull off an Izannah. I have a feeling she will be done before I get Alice done. But that's Alice's problem, not mine. I think she forgot I am the queen around here and she should be super nice to me and not cop an attitude if she wants to be completed.
Anyhooos, hopefully I will get a substantial amount of work done on one of these girls tomorrow...as I have decided that I will feel better, even if I don't. I am the queen of denial and this has worked pretty well for me so far.
