When Jane Wishes Upon A Star

I wish I had all the time to read every blog I want to read, with plenty of time to make deep, thoughtful comments and the time to write amazing posts of my own.

I wish I hadn’t have spent $75 on a massage that was just so-so from someone fresh out of massage school. I thought I was saving money.  But it was so not worth it.

I wish I didn’t use the word “so” so much. (Whoops! I did it again, Brittany!)

I wish I could turn back time and snuggle my babies when they were babies again.

I wish the mess in the Gulf had never happened and I worry about all the wildlife choking on the filth.

I wish more than a fifth of all Americans, such as, COULD locate, like Iraq and South Africa such as everywhere like, the United States on a map. (I’m sorry to make fun of her again. But it is still funny.)

I wish whenever I was stuck for a blog post idea the writing prompts I look up actually inspired me.

I wish I had a pa-pa-pa-poker face.

I wish all the food that tastes so good had the negative calories of celery.

I wish Diet Coke didn’t taste like….Diet.

I wish the trip we are taking in a few weeks was for pleasure and not obligation.

I wish every blogger out there (especially the ones who read my humble blog) lots of traffic and lots of fabulous post ideas.

I wish I could win the lottery. Of course, I suppose I should at least play the lottery first. (Which I’ve never done. Ever. Can you believe it?)

I wish I knew what my writing gift was. I wish I could decide what I do best and run with it.

I wish everyone out there a happy, happy Memorial Day. I wish everyone protecting our freedom and the freedom of others a safe arrival home. And if you’re missing someone who has died I wish you peace in your heart.

    Oh my goodness, I hadn’t seen the Miss South Carolina clip before. How embarrassing! I suspect she will be haunted by that for ever more. 🙂

    “I wish all the food that tastes so good had the negative calories of celery.” I’ll second that!

  2. I went and checked out the clip as well. It was pretty funny–but I so felt for the girl. In smaller ways, we’ve all done something like that. At least I do–but maybe that’s just because I’m a bit of a klutz when it comes to conversation!

    Great post, Jane. Makes we want to go to my journal and do something similar. 🙂

  3. I totally agree w/ the diet coke thing. I had a regular coke a while back and thought “man… I forgot what I was missing…” and I haven’t looked at my diet coke the same since.

  4. Now I’m going to have Poker Face in my head all day 🙂

    I was raised on diet soda–the most hideous one of all, TAB. So Diet Coke tastes pretty good to me. But I hear you on the zero calorie food…

  5. Awesome list of wishes – I love it!

    And I actually prefer diet soda. Diet Pepsi is my poison.

    Wow! Never played the lottery?! We play every week (we REALLY want to win)!

    And… like TheKitchenWitch, I will now have Gaga in my head all day! 🙂

  6. I wish that I could give up my regular Coca Cola habit.

    I am with you on the writing prompt thing. I often find my most inspired posts come from something that has happened to me, rather than an actual prompt.

    Off to hear some Lady Gaga.

    Have a wonderful holiday.

  7. I think those are all perfectly legitimate, lovely, and sometimes funny wishes. You can learn to have a pa-pa-pa-poker face, you know – you just have to practice playing poker for a while :P!

    As far as I’m concerned, you’re a really good, talented writer, and I love reading whatever you post for us here :). I hope you keep doing so, and that you also get more inspiration, as you wish on us!

  8. I hear you on that travel out of obligation … I’ve got a three-part trip starting tomorrow. Only one part of it was actually something I wanted for myself.

    Celery has negative calories?! Man, I wish I liked it raw. Never could make it work, with peanut butter, cream cheese, dip, you name it.

  9. Jane, I’m happy that I stumbled onto your blog those few days ago. I like all those wishes. Wishing upon a star is something that we all should do from time to time.

  10. I am not a lottery player either. My in-laws play it regularly and I am sure they will have fun rubbing it in when they hit it big (in the meantime, I can’t make fun of them as their defense is “wait until next week.”)

  11. I loved this post. I wish a lot of things too – maybe too much..

    Happy Memorial’s Day to you as well, Jane! I wish you lots of love and happiness and smiles.

  13. Those are all great wishes….I wish I could snuggle my babies again too!!

  14. Like, I wish I didn’t use the word “like” so much. 🙂

    Love this post!

  15. I share your wish #1, if only there were enough hrs in the day.

  16. Um…I didn’t notice you standing there in my head. 😉

    I found a solution to the Diet Coke problem. Squeeze a slice of lemon or lime (or a little lemonade mix if you’re desperate) into the drink. The citrus cuts the “diet” taste and gives it a citrus-y taste. It’s palatable at that point.

  17. I so love the word so. I actually prefer diet pepsi to regular, but it makes me feel dirty inside that I feel that way (oh, yummy, acesulfame-potassium!). I think winning the lottery is often a mixed blessing at best.

  18. i wish that all your wishes come true
    and that includes about your wish on bloggers, too.
    i wish that you take a peep on my site
    even just for a while and share that smile 🙂
