Rambo, Two Stones & Olivia Newton John

Somewhat Wordless Wednesday:

With the red headband and her stern coloring method, Rambo immediately came to mind.

Her headband and blazer are Keith Richards but her elbows out like chicken wings is all Mick Jagger.

Once I looked past the booger picking and noticed the 1980’s style headband/ponytail combo, I immediately thought of those old workout videos. Which then led me to singing Olivia Newton John’s “Physical” in my head. And now it’s probably playing in yours, too. You’re welcome.

Happy Wednesday!!


X is for Xanadu

In anticipation of the post for the letter X, all week long I tried to think of something to write about. The first thing I could think of that started with X is Xanadu.

Yep, an Olivia Newton John song.
That’s all I got.

But it did get me thinking. What the heck is a Xanadu anyway?

Well, I looked it up, and apparently, Xanadu means “a place of great beauty, luxury, and contentment.”

That sounds amazing. It makes me think of sitting on a white sandy beach, watching my kids play and listening the waves crash against the shore. And I’m sure somewhere in the picture is a fruity adult beverage and a massage.

My week at work was even more insane than the last and I could have totally used a little time in the lap of luxury.

So, as it turns out, Xanadu is perfectly fitting for last week.
