Adored


Hustle and Bustle, Running Around
Planning, Organizing, Executing
The greatest gift?
A moment of adoration.


It was a week…+SantaCon…

Green-eyed Monster

The Merchant of Venice, 1596:

Portia:
How all the other passions fleet to air,
As doubtful thoughts, and rash-embraced despair,
And shuddering fear, and green-eyed jealousy! O love,
Be moderate; allay thy ecstasy,
In measure rein thy joy; scant this excess.
I feel too much thy blessing: make it less,
For fear I surfeit.

Othello, 1604,

Iago:
O, beware, my lord, of jealousy;
It is the green-eyed monster which doth mock
The meat it feeds on; that cuckold lives in bliss
Who, certain of his fate, loves not his wronger;
But, O, what damned minutes tells he o’er
Who dotes, yet doubts, suspects, yet strongly loves!

dievca is tired and jealous. Jealousy is not as glamorous as Shakespeare’s writing~

The guilt arrives as she feels she has no right to be jealous.

Wait! It’s not jealousy…it’s envy. Green with envy~

dievca should be happy about other people’s good fortune, right?

The people around her travel to Miami, Maine, Cape Cod, California, Copenhagen, Belize, Argentina, Philadelphia, Switzerland, Vietnam, Montreal, Colorado, Scotland, Iceland, Cuba for pleasure trips…

dievca’s last three trips were for family and taking care of their needs or working 13 hour days for two weeks.  The next trip will be back to her Parents, again. It’s not relaxing. And dievca gets this: “It’s so much easier when you are around, when are you coming back?” or “I’m only going to be around so long.” or “Can you eBay the two exercise machines for me? I know that X,Y,Z is nowhere near NY, but you eBay and I don’t” — how should dievca feel?

Note: dievca tries to make sure she does something she likes during those trips, plus she tries to remember that the trips are for people she loves….but a weekend getaway, a college football game, a stop at the beach purely for herself wouldn’t go amiss.

dievca just cannot bring herself to do it…and that is her fault.

Just let her whinge, ok?  The clothes coming up are worth it.

Remember those people who were traveling for fun? dievca gets a bit resentful when those same people come home and complain about how they are behind on work or their bodies aren’t working well because they missed yoga…really, dievca’s heart is bleeding for you – having five days off was tough.

They could have brought her a bottle of wine or a little gift, right?

she (dievca) is a shitty person, huh?
she is really tired and cranky…

Look how sexy the pin-up is in green –
If dievca can’t travel, maybe a little green Retail Therapy would help easy her jealousy~

A Cold Nose and the Full Moon

Tonight’s Moon is the last full moon of the year and it should be a good one.

dievca caught the moon, yesterday evening, after walking home from sharing Ramen with a friend. (http://www.junmenramen.com/)
It was very close to full!

December’s full moon is called the Cold Moon.
Tonight’s full moon will be a supermoon, and the only visible supermoon in 2017.

During her city wandering, dievca was wearing:

 

The moon becomes totally full at 10:47 a.m. EST (1547 GMT).

The best time to see a supermoon is just after sunset. Something called the “moon illusion” makes the moon appear even bigger: The closer it is to the horizon, the larger it looks. No one knows exactly why this happens, but it is probably has something to do with our eyes.

For those living in the mainland United States, the supermoon will rise at 4:29 p.m. local time in San Francisco and 5:26 p.m. in New York City. If you are in Honolulu, head outside at 6:25 p.m. Those in Anchorage, Alaska, can catch the moonrise at 4:28 p.m.

dievca will be wishing you good health and joy on the Moon!


Sexy Sabbatical!
