Morning Meanderings…. Now That’s Classic!

Morning.  I am feeling a little ill.  I am hoping to shake it as I work today, and have book club tonight.  Every October we read a classic and this years pick is Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar.  We are all suppose to wear an old-time hat in honor of the classics, but I am really hoping I can pull off a whole classic ensemble. As of this moment however, I do not even have a hat.  😛


“This is procrastination calling.  Congratulations!  You are our number one customer!”


I love that our book club likes to take things to the next level and it makes for great memories of our discussions and our year-end reviews.   I must be a team player.

Today after work I will take a buzz through a local thrift store and see if they have anything that inspires me.  If I could come up with something like this I would be thrilled:



Ok I am out of here.  Have a super day and hopefully tomorrow I will feel awesome and have something way more intelligent (or at least funny) to say.  😛

  1. I hope you do feel better before tonight….and that you find a great vintage look.

    I’ve been noticing The Bell Jar around…and I think I used to have a copy of it a long time ago. But it obviously disappeared at some point. I remember reading it when I lived in SF and was attending college there.

    But I think I’ll request it from the library.

  2. I absolutely love that Sylvia Plath quote. It is so eloquent and applicable. I’ll have to write it down somewhere. And I’ve got to track down a copy of The Bell Jar – it’s been on my wish list for ages.

    I hope you are feeling better and able to find a great outfit for your book club.

    As for procrastination, we totally have that in common. Often heard around my house – “That’s today? You’ve got to be kidding me!” Followed by much scrambling.

  3. Whatever you wear, I’m sure you’ll look fabulous! Don’t forget to take a picture….like we need to remind you. 🙂
    I hope you are feeling better!

  4. Hope you feel better soon!
    I absolutely love Sylvia Plath! The Bell Jar is a great classic to pick.
    Hope you got an outfit you wanted. The picture of the dress you posted is beautiful! =)

  5. I like the quote. So true.
    I have a box of hats that would work for your book club meeting. I could probably come up with clothes too. The running joke at the library was that no matter what the topic, Pat had stuff for it. Sad, but mostly true.

Hmmmm... what do you think?
