From Boob Graze to Meme…On Purpose!

One of my favorite movies is The Holiday starring Kate Winslet, Jude Law, Cameron Diaz, and Jack Black. I use this movie to illustrate important points relating to living life on purpose. Hey, whatever works, right?

Well anyway… Jack Black’s character Miles is a hoot, as you can imagine. He’s my favorite. Gotta love him! Miles and Kate Winslet’s character Iris, are out having a bite. No, not of each other! Stay with me, now. So, when Miles reaches for the soy sauce, his hand accidentally brushes against Iris’ boob. And he announces to those within earshot, “Accidental boob graze!” I’m laughing as I write this.

Well, when I first met the lovely Ann Handley of Annarchy (you have to say that very loud with a booming voice: A N N A R C H Y! Makes a difference, huh?) last summer here in the Bigger Apple, we were having our picture taken and whoops! Accidental boob graze! Well we howled! Now, she doesn’t know I’m telling you this story. But being that you are my dearest friends, I feel I must since she has tagged or memed me.

Like Ann, I don’t do memes very well. I always forget to do something. But, I will give it another try.

Four Secrets About Me

1. I love movies from the 30’s and 40’s. Someone once told me I should have been born then. But then I couldn’t blog because blogs didn’t exist. Duh!

My favorite of that era is The Women. But the only purpose those women had was to stab other women in the back! I have evolved.

Yes, The Holiday is from this century. I can be flexible when the occasion calls for it!

2. I am an HSP – a highly sensitive person. So I can’t do violent and scary movies, loud noises, crowds, and airport security. Traumatic! And I live in New York City. Go figure!

3. My first job out of college was on a telephone complaint hotline – for the city. Okay, so now you know!

4. I had no intention of reading Eckhart Tolle’s A New Earth. But Oprah said I should. Okay, she said everybody should.

Now, none of these are really secrets. They are just well hidden, highly covert, in your face facts. Living in New York isn’t nearly as traumatic as these memes are. So, Lady Ann, my boob graze sister, here’s to you!

Oh yeah, this is the part I forget – who do I get to mess with next! Actually, this is the fun part. I am rubbing my hands with a decidedly sinister look on my face. But it’s wasted cuz well, you can't see me. Damn!

Well, I cannot allow this sinister look to go to waste, so here goes! My Mogulette sister, Carmina Perez; my Positivity sister, Kirsten Harrell; my Beautiful Chaotic sister, April Groves; my Café sister, Towanda Long.

Hey, I am a woman of purpose, so I have a lot of sisters!

Have a boob graze... on purpose!

What a great way to start my day... with warm thoughts of you and the graze heard round the world.... :)

I share something with you and none other ;)

You rock, lady!

Carmina Pérez said...

Carolyn, you are too funny! I didn't see the movie but am a fan of Jack Black, so I can picture him saying "boob graze!". Unfortunately there's not much to graze with me...but thanks for thinking of me!
