U is for . . .

Utopia, or perfect world. With the exception of The Hundred Acre Wood, books and utopia don’t mix. In a perfect world there is no tension, hence no story. That’s why we have dystopia, because one man’s heaven is surely another’s hell. Hunger Games is a prime example. I don’t know about you, but I’d much rather don District Twelve’s duds than put up with the make-up, hair, and style regimen of the Capital—ugh.

My utopia would be to time travel back to 1987 or so. It's Spring Break and I've got a week to sway in my backyard hammock reading, eating M&Ms, and drinking diet root beer. What decadence! Care to share your utopia?

Here's today's "Name That Famous Brand":

Hint: I had to go into the garage to get this shot.

Yesterday's famous brand: Was it Twizzler or Twister? If you guessed Twister, the board game, you win.

  1. D'oh! I guessed the wrong brand yesterday. For today I'm going with U-Haul, though the color seems wrong. Still, it's the only guess I have LoL

    That's an awesome picture up top. As for my personal utopia... I don't know LOL That will require further thought.

  2. i think right now, it would be to have a large beach house, and be there from now until the summer, with all of my family

  3. Utopia would be standing on the launch field during the Albuquerque Int'l Balloon Fiesta - again.

  4. I'm going with U-haul.

    As for my utopia, Florida keys... little B&B cottage efficiency right on the ocean where the owner's wife makes key lime pie from the limes on the trees out front.

    Course, it wouldn't be complete without me eating said pie while floating on a raft in the waves. Preferably not 9 months pregnant this time...

  5. Beautiful picture! My utopia is the mountains of NC and TN. I am guessing U-Haul too

  6. Log cabin. Woods. Quiet. Laptop. Coffee. Chocolate.

    Not much to ask, right?

    I'm going w/ the crowd. U-Haul?


  7. All these utopia's sound excellent.

  8. You can check out the best walking aids to go on a adventurous tour. There are many companies who are selling walking related aids but only dew are dominating the market. You can check here for an affordable rate purchase and better service. walking frames


I will do everything in my power to visit commenter's blogs unless I've been abducted by aliens or my children get sick. (If my children get abducted by aliens, I will be very busy, of course, catching up on my sleep.)
