You gotta live

39 Ways to Live and Not Merely Exist.

Yea! New blog discovered (for me). Dumb Little Man.

Dear Dumb Little Man,

Your site made my day.


Baically smart and too tall Emdot

Go read this list. I bet you start thinking of things you could add to it. What makes your heart sing? What change could you make that would take this summer from lowercase summer hohum to ALL CAPS FREAKIN A AWESOME SUMMER?

That's the question I've been asking myself since June 19. The solstice was coming up and I really wanted to come up with a list of Fabulous Things to Do That Would Make Me Look Back at This As a Really Damn Good Summer.

I came up with losing weight. Getting to work early. Walking to work. Drinking water. Being organized.

All fine goals. Things that would make my life better.

But it's pretty safe to say that these are pretty... um... boring. Ho hum. Yeah rights. Yeah sures. And yeah you oughttas.

A list of Yeah You Oughtas does not a great summer make.

I feel like it's five days late -- but with 85 more days to go, I'm pretty sure that DLG's list could make this a summer to love.

What are you doing this summer?

Wonderful link - thanks for sharing! I am leaving my dreadful soul-eating job this week. I have a little money saved up, so I plan to spend the summer playing. Gonna take some road trips, shoot photos with some funky toy cameras, and do some heavy-duty purging and space-clearing in my home. Oh, and I'm NOT gonna cut my hair. I finally realized that going for haircuts is an expensive chore that I always dread. So I'm going Earth Girl for a while. Hurrah!

Hey Emdot! I agree -- I love DLM's posts and I had saved this one as well. Here's to a fabulous summer!
