February 2, 2011


Y’all know two of my dear internets Deanna and Jai right? Well if not you should. Okay so on of Deanna’s post, a while back, Jai left a comment that basically said the perfect scenario would be … to be reading a really good book, in a bubble bath (I added bubbles) and eating chocolate cake. Deanna went on to say “Why don’t we just deem February that month.

And now unbeknownst to them I’m announcing that February, the love month is also the month when all readers should take a bath while eating chocolate cake and reading a book. I think it should be a book of poems, love poems and that you should read them to your lover who may or may not be with you in the bubbles.

A sea of bubbles and chocolate cake crumbs and wet skin and well y’all get the idea. Yeah I know you can picture that…

this particular book (the intention experiment) is not poetry, it’s a smart mental book…lalala

Now I want you all to go take a bath, at least once this month, eat some chocolate cake and read a book, or at least one love poem this month. Take a photo of yourself while doing it and post it on your blog. Oh, you can do it, don’t be scared; if I can YOU can

And be sure to stop by both Deanna’s and Jai’s to tell them thank you…Thank You for the great month I’m having.

Oh and while we’re at it here’s some keywords: how about bathing beauty (term used very loosely) in Naked bubbles eating a Hostess Chocolate dingdong reading while naked. There that should do it. Oh and YES I can be daring when you can't really see me...Live that is

I love this idea. I'm doing it.

Deanna Schrayer said...

Oh Paige, you absolutely crack me up! I can't believe you remembered that conversation, but am so glad you did.
And brave! You are brave! No way will I be posting my pic anywhere on the internet, but I WILL bathe with some chocolate cake - right now! :)

Thanks for the mention dear heart!

You're on a roll, for February!!! ,-)

I like books, and I'd love chocolate, if I could eat it. But never take baths, just showers. [I hear you screaming "Why???" I don't like baths.]

But you are doing it all, for me! ,-)

Hugs and ♥'s...
'Cause Valentine Day is coming!

ONCE a month? Doesn't everyone bath like this all the time? Huh! lol.

Sounds like a plan!

Hi Paige .. the Love month .. so right there .. and the thought of chocolate cake and soap bubbles .. not really .. and a photo of me bathing .. not a good idea!!

But a poem on the month of February would not be bad .. cheers Hilary

I have cake,
and I have candles,
Sadly, tho,
I have love handles.

Who was it who said, "Candy is dandy, but liquor is quicker,"?

I came, I saw, I gasped and drown. Back to editing ...

OK. First off, bubbles on my book? Ain't gonna happen. Second, chocolate cake crumbs + bathwater - eeeeww. I like my bathwater clean and pure and free of text (don't think you wanna see a picture of that).

Would brownies work? I just pulled a fresh pan out of the oven!

Snaggle Tooth said...

Wow! Am I surprized!
Very interesting n brave bath person... Didn't the book get soggy?
I had some Dutch apple cake, but ate it all already.
Interesting month theme...

Oh. My. Freaking. God.

You are crazier than I am!!!

Best post in the universe.

You needs you one of them bathtub trays. I saw someone with one once.

Mine would be one with a drink holder for my champagne.

Paige, you are by far the zaniest woman on this earth. You are what Cool wants to be :)
I love this post. But take a bath! I haven't had one of those in years. Maybe I could give it a go... I know eating the chocolate cake will be the easiest part of the whole production. I'll get back to you :)

Jean-Luc Picard said...

You are really brave there, Paige. I would have thought the book got quite soggy too. A great idea. I real Quality Post

Jai Joshi said...

Oh Paige! You like the happiest woman in the world in that tub!

The great news is that I have a lovely tub in my new house and so I can take a long soak and indulge myself with a great book and chocolates. I even bought a mini oven so I can bake cake and indulge in chocolate and cakes (or even chocolate cake!) with my bubble bath and book. All in the month of February. Doesn't get much better than that.


Daisy said...

Paige, you are lovely, and oh so brave! :D

No one wants to see a picture of me in the tub on the internet--trust me! Well, I don't want to see that anyway, so probably no one else does either.

The cake, the bubbles, the reading, and poems--those all sound good, just no picture. HA! :D

Thanks for making me smile.
