Stars in your eyes

     So this Monday, Stasha gave us 10 ten reasons why stars/celebrities are just like us. Hmm? Stars, like me?

10 I can also not pay my taxes promptly. In my defense, I'm Canadian so I still have two weeks left to file. Okay , maybe 2007 through 2010 are a tad late but really.......

9 I can spend, a lot. I now feel much better about my less than stellar financial planning.

8 I can throw a tantrum. Makes me look positively sane and reasonable. 

7 I can curse. (see above)

6 I can't sing dance or act. Arguably I have little if any social relevance. I too qualify to have my own "reality" show.

5 I have minions. Note: you get what you pay for. I pay mine in treats, just saying. More about them later on this week.

4 I can trash a space with the best of them.


3 I know the importance of being myself, naturally.

2 Leaving the house usually requires dark glasses and a disguise. Seriously, who primps for the morning coffee run?

1 I use my space for shameless self promotion. That's right, I'm entering Movita's new contest, Bake my Cake. I lost out in Ginger 2011 so I need some support here, I mean my own mother didn't vote. What is up with that? The competition deadline is April 27th so the rest of the week here in the kitchen will be about how I made the cake. I'll be sending off my pictures to Movita on Friday then I'll keep you posted on the voting process. It will probably start on the weekend but you never know with Movita, she's crafty.

     Maybe I am a celebrity and I don't even know it? Uhmmmm Probably not. Be sure to stop by Stasha's and see what everyone else had to say.

  2. Your list is wildly creative and true! I agree that sunglasses are a must when going out first thing in the morning. ;)

  4. You're Canadian so doesn't that already give you street cred in Hollywood? Great list!

  8. We would vote for you. I think the fact that you're Canadian is the best excuse in the book. Funny, Erin and Ellen

    1. They do seem to go hand in hand. Such great stress releases. It helps keep the minions focused LOL

    1. That's the only place being a celebrity matters really. I'll be counting on those votes.
      My minions never do what they're told either, bad minions, bad.
