blah on a december night

Okay I must admit that I am a complete kid in some ways. I was going through some things of mine and found a kids coloring book and a box of 64 crayons as well as a box of smelly ones (scented like roses, trees and other things like mr sketch) and in the end I sat and colored this ancient book for a few hours. It is still nice to step out and reach out to the inner child and let the caged beast out once in a blue moon.
Which I noticed it is a full moon. The 22 is the first day of winter but there is over 50 cm of snow on the ground.
And Kim and I almost decided to make the snow that we have shovelled off the decks into a snow fort, since the snow is almost as tall as the raised deck. I never noticed til I talk to people my own age how much Kim has in a way, pulled me back in age so that I don't feel totally stupid filling milk cartons full of ice and snow and making a makeshift igloo, or watching old saturday cartoons. Some think that once you reach a certain age that things like that should be pushed by the wayside, made room for the sameness of adult age. Tasting both at the same time to make it all the more that I really don't want to trade in the fact that sometimes rather play a brain dead game of snakes and ladders than doing something that is more age appropriate. Unfortunatly all I have on my mind right now that older peoples do is drive and look at porn.
Anyways this has been another waste of a blog post. Hopefully my dog doesn't beg for food and trip me on the way to bed.

I really enjoy those moments, when you just slip back into childish points. I still colour! I brought a colouring book and crayons to work with me one day (at Wal-Mart) and my co-worker asked if she could join me! It was great. I think a big group of us should get together and have a snow ball fight or go skating at dog rump creek!

I'm exactly the same way. I don't really care, I love doing childish things. I love coloring in coloring books and playing with PlayDoh at 2 in the morning at Tim Hortons, right?! ;) Those were good times. I love watching cartoons. I love going out and playing in the snow and going sledding. I love eating with my fingers. I love playing video games. I think that many people's idea of being "grown up" sucks. I think that you can be an adult, but still have some kid-friendly fun at the same time.

Ahhh those were good times...Maybe it is that we all get to hang out with a whole bunch of people who love to keep childish...

Yup...colouring is the BOMB! I miss the old colouring books...all the ones out there today are colouring and "activity" books...which is no fun...I miss the mickey mouse and friends colouring books...

It makes me sad to see all of our old cartoons pimped out and jazzed up to make them interesting to kids today...Sombody please tell me...What was wrong with the original Ninja Turtles? and My Little Pony? and The Care Bears? Why do they have to be all computer graphic-ized and weird for kids to like them now-a-days?

I also think that grown up things are stressful and bad for us. I think it is healthy to have an inner child...

I think we should all get together, go puddle jumping, make mud pies, play with play-doh, and watch some good old original Ninja turtles while drinking "swampwater" and pizza!

*nod* I agree with everything you said, Mel!! The new Ninja Turtles is LAME!! Come on!! Apparently all the kids now have ADD, and can't even concentrate on regular good ol' cartoons, we have to add things to them to make them interesting?! LAME!! That's what I say. I think we need to have a party. I'm sad that I'm not there. Maybe, one of the days before my wedding, we'll all get together and have some fun like that. It would definitely help to destress me, and we all know how stressed I'll be.
