my glamorous life where i swear...

this weekend we drove around looking at land. abandoned properties. old barns.
we trespassed. because we're bad asses like that.
i got close to the cows
close enough that the cluster flies on them
attacked me
and
the gigantic wild thistles in the brush i was standing in
scratched my legs
~
but
i like cows
so it was worth it
i went to my first real derby bout saturday night
my friend's girlfriend is in the white and blue helmet. she's a bad ass too. they won first place. the whole thing made me laugh and cheer
while i kept thinking to myself
" i could totally do that"
perfectly tender
grilled teriyaki chicken and garlic naan was our dinner last night
and
we smiled when bret michaels won celebrity apprentice
actually we smiled because he's alive
and
the world needs more people in it like him
he's a bad ass
too
~
you know
the more i think about it
this life of mine
really
is
glamorous
and
actually the more i think about it
i don't think
bad ass
is really swearing
is it

  9. I love the adventure!
    Those days of traveling the unknown…
    finding those perfect places, to explore, to dream, to enjoy…
    and of course those….photos!
    A better shot is always awaiting where we can’t go!
    And I believe that my dear; it's the fun of getting caught!
    I am a big fan!
    You have such a wonderful blog!
    Ps…What a great photo of the cow!
    Enjoy!

  14. What a sweet cow...good thing there was no bull lying in wait to give you the run of your lives...but, then, you would have made a glorious adventure out of that, provided there wasn't a horn poked into your delightfully funny "bad ass"!
