I Have a Doppelganger

Picture of the Day for 8/31/2014. I have a doppelganger. My sister Robynne saw this picture of a Salt Lake Tribune columnist and did a double-take. This woman and I definitely resemble each other.

Apparently, I had a doppelganger in college. Several people over the course of my college career commented that they had seen my lookalike wandering around campus. I was disappointed that I never saw her, but maybe that's for the best. Perhaps the fabric of time and space would have ripped apart if we had laid eyes on each other. I always wondered if people told her that they had seen her doppelganger wandering around campus.

Wait a minute...it just occurred to me that this columnist might be the very same doppelganger from college. We're about the same age...

Empty Seat - Part 2

Picture of the Day for 8/30/2014. Surely not! This is too good to be true! Another flight where there's an empty seat next to me! Room to spread out! 

On Tuesday it happened on the flight from Dallas/Ft. Worth to Orlando. Today it happened on the flight from Orlando to Dallas/Ft. Worth. Apparently this must not be a very popular route. It's popular with me now. Woo hoo!

When Sandals and Flip-Flops Collide

Picture of the Day for 8/29/2014. I was at Old Navy earlier this week using a gift card to buy some clothes for my Florida trip. I came across these sandals that are made from flip-flop material. Genius! I love flip-flops and I like sandals with straps around the ankles so I don't have to worry about clenching my toes to keep my shoes on so I decided to buy a pair in black and another pair in white. Oh my word, these are life-changing. I've been wearing them every day of my trip. LOVE them!!!

Don't Rub the Jaguar's Belly

Picture of the Day for 8/28/2014. Visited the Palm Beach zoo and laughed when I saw this sleeping jaguar. It looks like you should be rubbing its belly, but that would probably be a very, very, very bad idea.

Conchita the Dog

Picture of the Day for 8/27/2014. Don't you just love businesses that have a resident dog? Conchita the Dog greeted me at a little aviation gift shop I visited today and we became friends of course.

Empty Seat - Part 1

Picture of the Day for 8/26/2014. There is no more glorious sight than an empty seat next to you on a plane. This rarely happens on the over-crowded and over-booked flights that have become the norm.

Alarm Overkill

Picture of the Day for 8/25/2014. I found a ridiculously cheap flight/rental car price for Florida so I'm heading out there tomorrow for a quick visit. One of the reasons the flight is so cheap is because it leaves at 6:00 am which means I need to be on the road by 4:30 am to get to the airport on time. In a justified* fit of paranoia, I set not one, but three alarms to go off in the morning. And that's just on my iPhone. I also set another alarm on my iPad for a grand total of four alarms between the two devices.

*I say justified because it actually took all four alarms to get me out of bed. I am soooooooo not a morning person.
