i'm not a wilderness girl

Since I'm laid up at home, I figured I'd watch a movie from my childhood...in between pain med induced naps.

So I made some coffee using our *new* non-carafe, coffee maker! (Those darn carafes are too easy to break...not that I would know or anything.)



Today's movie of choice:


If you haven't seen it - you must. Even if it's only to see a buttload of celebrities in their "pre-glam" stage (i.e. Tori Spelling as a brunette).


I've decided that there are some important life lessons to draw from this movie:

#1 - Clothing items are made to sell, not made to fit your body. Therefore alterations are a great investment!


updated uniform

#2 - You can be as nice as possible to someone & no matter how nice you are, they will just NEVER like you. Get over it. There's a buttload of other people that DO like you & want to be your friend.

"Those little bimbesses are really starting to bug me!" - Velda Plendor



"Look, they're dragging something." - Frances Temple
 "It looks like an animal." - Annie Herman
"Oh, it must be Velda." - Frances Temple

#3 - Being a mentor is so rewarding. invest in someone else's life besides your own.

"Maybe we aren't robust mountain women. I'm going to show you girls how to survive in the wilds of Beverly Hills." - Phyllis Neflar





#4 - Don't take yourself so seriously. Dance around, get crazy, make people laugh.



#5 - Be sure to dress for the occasion.

but do wear an indian head-dress and turquoise when discussing american indian heritage


#6 - It's okay to consider staying at Holiday Inn or the HoJo, "camping". Yes, stars are pretty, but if you're sleeping under them, you don't see them since your eyes are closed. So why not be comfortable & just sleep in a bed?

"Is this what you call roughing it!?" - Velda Plendor
"1 bathroom for 9 girls, yes!" - Phyllis Neflar

#7 - "We don't need no stinking patches." - Rosa
Medals, maybe...but patches, no.

#8 - "In the wilderness of life, you can never be too prepared" - Phyllis Neflar


#9 - Everything is negotiable.

"you know, it's  missing a bead" - Phyllis
so the sales clerk knocks off $600

#10 - Have faith in yourself & prove them wrong.

"Phyllis, I can't let you take the girls out there alone!" - Annie Herman
"Why not?" - Phyllis Neflar
"Because you get lost in your walk in closet." - Hannah Neflar

My fingers are crossed that tomorrow I'll be able to run. Today was the first of my half marathon training, where I've had to miss a day of running.

I'm done with being sore & lazy.
