Happiness is a puzzle- literally

For a few months now I have been telling John that I really wanted a puzzle.  This 'puzzled' him as I've never shown much interest in puzzles and therefore he never took me seriously.  However, the other day while we stood in the most confusing section of a toy store (what has happened to toys?) I noticed the puzzle aisle and scampered over to find a fabulous Marilyn Monroe puzzle.  This is all I wanted for Christmas.  A $7.99 puzzle has made me very happy.  However, I did have to buy it for myself as John still didn't quite believe me.  Later that evening we watched Liz Taylor in 'Night Watch' which is a bizarre but extremely watchable  film, and there was Liz working on a puzzle.  I felt a little less of a big nerd for wanting to play with a puzzle.   Liz made it look quite glamorous with her big diamonds and rubies.

Perhaps I'll get the diamonds and rubies for next Christmas.

I hope all of you have a fabulous and fulfilling holiday season and thanks so much for taking the time to look at my work and read my crazy ramblings.   I hope to have some more originals ready by the end of this week- that is if I can tear myself away from the puzzle.

  1. Toys…Hex Bugs were the minor present for all four of mine and it has turned out to be so amusing to listen to them play together creating scenarios for the “bugs” to battle, travel, play. Maybe next year I can get them interested in puzzles as I have fond memories of Christmas time puzzles at our house and next door at my grandparents house (leaves and sky are still not favorite areas). Enjoy your cheap thrill and thanks for the skip down memory lane. Merry Wishes!

  2. And how much did you mock me for liking puzzles? Now it’s my turn to imagine you as Ross from friends: “The big deal is I don’t want naked, greasy strangers in my apartment when I want to kick back with a puzzle — beer! Cold beer.”
