When I Grow Up....

I want to be as weird and eccentric as the two aunts in Practical Magic. I don't want to be normal run of the mill. I want to be one of those dotty old ladies with loads of cats, who wears broad-brimmed hats with purple and orange sashes. I want to be the kind of old lady everyone thinks is completely batty, but who is interesting enough to spend a lot of time with. Whatever else happens in my life, I just want to be a dotty old bird with a few eccentric habits and a big, warm heart.


  1. YES! That's exactly it! That's what I want, too. To be a "woman with a past" (and you'll know what I mean about that soon).

    I'll let you borrow my orange sash if you want. :)

  2. Sounds fab! Do I have to wait or can I do it all now...? ;>

  3. Yup. We can start now.

    I wonder if I still have that witch's outfit somewhere....

  4. I LOVE that movie, especially the Aunts. I'm already paving the way to being the strange one in my neighborhood. I put herbs and wild flowers in my flower bed, right next to the roses! Not all that wierd until you compare it to my suburban neighbors. I figure if I get more and more eccentric each year, by the time the kids move out, I'll be right where I want to be. :)

  5. Oh cool,
    and we will be able to recognise one another by our eccentricities and be able to nod to one another knowingly with an amused smile.

  6. I'm sure I'll become the kind of old lady who'll die alone in her apartment and be found a couple of weeks later, eaten on by my 47 cats.
    And I don't mean that in a sad way. ^^
