the wanderlust

i was surfing on some blogs today, and found this quiz ...

You Belong in London

A little old fashioned, and a little modern.

A little traditional, and a little bit punk rock.

A unique woman like you needs a city that offers everything.

No wonder you and London will get along so well.

What City Do You Belong in? Take This Quiz :-)

yes, there are a lot of these type quizzes on the internet, but this one struck a chord.
but no, i can't. not now. not soon. i'm committed now to nesting. maybe i can create london here? i was in london once, years ago --- before i was curious about the things i would seek now. i spent my time in the tate and victora & albert, and on the upper floors of liberty visiting the fabric daily. (i never saw the 'royal palace'? or big ben, or any other london sites ... it was all about art.)
oh! i have cold, and i'm tired of breathing like an old man!

good news today ... while at work (yarn shop)(go figure) a woman came in with a few questions and a mission. helped her with her pattern and yarn, and she had an intersting accent. she metioned a romanian friend, and her birthday. i asked, "which month". she, "oh, december". me, "which day?", she, "the 24th".
REALLY?! me too :) she was tickled. she'll be 76 on her next birthday, and i will be a whopping 36. she was really cool.
she revealed the secrets of youth ... be a happy spinster, wash with camay (sp?) soap and moisturize with loreal. she also colored her hair reddish, but i couldn't get away with that. i will have to keep my head high with silver!

I belong in London, too; that's what the quiz told me. Let me know when you're ready to move, and we'll have the most yarnariffic flat in town!
