Corn chips, Bryan Ferry, and The Cure

Barbeque corn chips to be exact - a strange, weekend long craving for the spicy, orange chips. Haven't had them in years.

And what do I hear yesterday, but the oh so sexy sound of Brian Ferry coming from the closet - where the child found a box of old cassette tapes, which she's been playing on her karaoke player ever since. Brings back memories - not that I ever had any heavy make-out sessions to 'Slave to Love' or 'More than This'. :) Listened to The Cure last night; 'Pictures of You', Fascination Street', 'Just Like Heaven' - I'd forgotten how much I loved those songs, and amazing the way I remembered every single word.

Had a retro weekend, which coincidentally has coincided with an invite to my fifteen year high school reunion. Part of me wants to go, part of me doesn't. Anyone else here ever go to theirs? What's it like? It's not until October. Plenty of time to decide, I suppose. And to lose a few pounds, but with this corn chip craving, I may just gain a few!

Wow! You're 15 year high school reunion, Kelly? I know I'm a little older than you, so that makes me wonder how long I've been out of high school . . . too long to count this morning! LOL

And barbecue corn chips . . . mmmmm! I used to eat those until my lips felt burned from all the salt!! Good thing I've already eaten this morning or I'd probably be going on a hunt. :)

I know! I graduated in '90. I still feel like a dorky teen. Okay, so now I'm just a dorky adult, lol. Where has the time gone? I was supposed to be fabulously wealthy and ruling a good portion of the planet by now. :)

I think my class must not have had a 15-year reunion, since that would have been last year. I tried to go to the 10-year one, but my car broke down on the way there. Hmm, I think it was a sign. :)

BTW, I went to check out your site for the Wardsmen -- very cool. And I've always loved those paintings by Edmund Leighton.

Thanks, Trish! I'm working on the second book in the series now. I'm a total sucker for the Pre-Raphaelite artists; love the ones of knights, ladies and mythology - their incredibly romantic and inspiring. J.W. Waterhouse is my all-time favorite.

I love The Cure! I love all of thier songs but favorites are Lullaby and Lovesong! I refuse to even acknowledge I know what barbecue corn chips are. Sighs. I know I should want to eat them, but they taste sooooo good!
