It’s so fun to think that my friend cjane is practically Internet royalty (having already held a Provo royalty crown for years.) Cjane doesn’t participate in memes and she doesn’t tag. Imagine my surprise when she tagged me. I had a feeling, I really thought it through, that this tag is to explain how to live like cjane.
The absolute first thing you must, must do is to wake up when you want to. And if you are cjane, that means waking up early, unless you don’t want to, in which case you won’t. However, early is preferable, unless it’s not.
Oops! I think you jumped the gun. I said wake up, not get out of bed. Make sure you spend a few minutes breathing deeply and contemplating the day ahead. Make a note of the light, the weather, and if you hear any birds singing. You will need to blog about all that later so make sure the adjectives are already plonking around in your head.
Once you have arisen you should eat breakfast, or not, you know, whatever. Perhaps some reading is in order? Proximo demonstrates:
Cjane doesn't usually read from magazines (as far as I know, she only reads hardcover books with library binding,) but you get the idea.
Next up, out shopping. It's important to go shopping because you never know when you'll need another pair of Crocs. Crocs are so important to cjane that she started her name with "c" as an ode to the nefarious 'foot wear.' By the way, it's OK to feel a little overwhelmed at a big warehouse store, cjane would be.Wow. That was hard work. Time to reward yourself!cjane. This time of year, cjane recommends the shamrock sugar cookies.
I'll leave our next adventure up to a multiple choice question:
1. You can't resist your box of donuts and rush back to the step down lounge in your home to knock back a few while surveying your domain.
2. You become distressed with the intensity of your outings and insist to be chauffered back to your doublewide immediately (no donuts.)
3. All those sweets remind you of all the peanut snacks living at Page's house, so you trek north to the happy house on the hill.
4. You ignore several phone calls and resolve to lose your phone forever.
Any of those could happen!
Time for you to visit your mother. Even if your mom doesn't have a seat on the city council, I bet she is doing other super-important things. This mom is busy loving Proximo up (what else are you supposed to do with him? He can't debate potholes or parking permits.) A little talk of politics, a little reminiscing, a little grounding as your family never lets you get away with anything.
On the way home, you should weigh the pros and cons of cultured dairy products (yes? no? maybe?) Once you've firmly decided that they are in, you should consider changing your mind. Why pigeon-hole yourself?
Record a song for possible future broadcast.Please tell me that you have some fabulous pillows and a very long couch that you can snuggle into for an end of winter night. The sun is setting on the step down lounge when your love turns the key in the door.
And what happens next in your life of cjane?
Well, that's your own multiple choice.
Tell me how you live like cjane.
