This post is inspired by E-ho. I saw her post last week & it occured to me that I could probably make a ribbon background image out of CSS. I was shocked when it actually worked.

Today, I'm double-copy-catting the marvelous Emily because I'm gonna use said ribbons today and link up with the Currently crew at Harvesting Kale and This Amazing Day.

missing: mexican food

Although we occasionally have margaritas here in Dominica {when the bar gets sweet & sour in} there is still no real mexican food. 8 months people. I'm ready for a good chile relleno, piece of carne asada, and spicy carrots.

dreaming: the AC

And I don't mean some cool new band. I mean literally dreaming of sitting in the Air Conditioning. Or visiting Alaska. Or jumping in an ice cold lake. The humidity is killing me here. You can read more about me sweating balls here.

loving: adventures with friends

In the past few weeks I've gone on a wine cruise, explored Roseau, made a big ant cake for Clare, climbed the Snakesteps, got a henna tattoo, had a beach bonfire, swam through a river gorge to a waterfall, sat in hot springs, and have basically been around the whole island a few times.

laughing: Dominica slang

My friend Mary is in the Peace Corps here on the island. We went to her office the other day and I noticed this awesome sign. Next time I hear someone say "Hey girl, your boom boom is getting fat!" I'm going to take it as a compliment.

wishing: job

I had an interview yesterday for a job that would really kickstart my career as an educational technologist. Pretty much, it's my dream job. It's a bit of a stretch in regards to my administrative experience, but I know that I could handle the responsibilities and am wishing that they would pick me.

What are you missing, dreaming, loving,
laughing or wishing about today?

Okay, that's a seriously awesome CSS trick. I love it! I've been meaning to do this link up for weeks and keep forgetting so I started my post for next week so hopefully I will remember, haha.

I think "your boom-boom is getting fat" will be my new saying. Maybe it will catch on!

I have been on a big Mexican food eating kick lately. For some reason it's all I seem to want and I honestly don't even like it very much.

Also, I could not handle not having a/c. I don't know how you've made it this far without moving into a waterfall cave or something.

Emily said...

dude you are a css wizard. So I firebugged this - put I can't figure out where to place it? WAHHHH.

Bahaha - "Damn girl your boom boom is getting fat" Amazing! This is my new line.

p.s. You're seriously my hero!

No Mexican food for how many months?! Margaritas as a special treat?! Oh no, I think I would implode!
Hope to hear some good news on the job soon!!

I'm not sure I could survive 8 months without Mexican food! I'm assuming the awesome adventures you get to go on make up for the lack of salsa fresco though!

Andi of My Beautiful Adventures said...

Looking healthy...hahaha! I LOVE it!!!

Bridey said...

It looks like the island adventures make up for the humidity and lack of Mexican food!
