what do men’s watches have to do with old women on trains?

Thursday, June 9, 2011

Nothing.

But recently, Kayla and I were on a train to Salzburg and we balanced my camera on the headrest of the seat in front of us and it fell off and landed on the old-woman-occupying-said-seat’s head.  This happened at the exact moment I said under my breath to Kayla, “I hope this doesn’t fall down and land on her head”. Whoops.

me and kayla, not on a train, but post-train celebrating in Salzburg:

In very, very unrelated news, I was recently looking at men’s watches online.  (Why?  Who knows!)  I really love this one (It shows 4 time zones at once!  I need that.) but I really love this one (the night mode is awesome.)  Let’s all buy these for the fathers/husbands in our lives this upcoming father’s day (it’s 10 days away!), assuming that we’re all running with a budget of $500-$1,000?  I know I am.  Seeing as how last year on Father’s Day, I got my dad this.
Is this really what my blog is coming to these days?  Heaven help us.

Totally random question. But you were just in Spain so I thought I'd give it a shot, have you ever been to the Canary Islands? Looking into a Vaca spots and stumbled across that one...

lol I love it. poor old lady. one time on a plane my sister is affraid of flights and we couldnt get the same row. I reached through the small crack in the seats in front of me and thought I grabbed her arm for reassurance while we took off.. it was not. but Im sure that woman felt my support anyways LOL

Hahah I really just love you. can you post a vlog so I know your real? And a watch with 4 time zones.. that is so freaking cool!!! I want to be traveled and fabulous. BOO this whole working in a cubicle. i want to retire…….. like yesterday.

Ps. the dropping the camera on the old lady sort of reminds me of myself. on an airplane. Getting up with my apple juice to throw out and use the restroom. except I stumbled and spilt it on the guy in front of me. it was…… awkward. Luckily the apple juice sort of matched his yellow shirt?

Oh dear goodness, that was one of the funniest things EVER! I remember not looking at you for a solid 5 minutes because I was burying my face in my arms trying to hide my laughter! Miss you!

Dani said...

Oo! Ooo! Me! Old women on trains can't see/forget their watches so they're constantly having to ask nearby men!

Yes? Yes? I'm on a roll. Give me two more random things! :)

Ay-yi-yi, poor lady! Heh heh. Hope she didn't give you TOO much of a stink-eye.

Also, loving the polka-dotted dress with the red bow around the waist, 'tis ADORBS!

Angel Garcia said...

Haha thats a funny story considering you said that and then the camera fell.. Did you really get your dad a spatula last year? Nice!

All the best, Angel

Chelsea Lane said...
