Why "Adventure Lady"?

and, why adventure, lady?

To answer the first, being of a certain age, I find it inappropriate to address myself as Adventure Girl.  Adventure Woman sounds kind of cheesy, with delusions of superpowers and tacky outfits and vestiges of Feminist monovision.  Adventure Lady is the Goldilocks Solution.  Not too silly, not too tweeny, just the right amount of that ole je ne sais quoi.

I am, after all, a lady.

As to the why adventure question, I covered that a bit before.  My Golden Year.  I need to stretch myself.  Stuck in a rut, that's me.  Seriously, I always drive the same path to work and the same path home.  The only time it changes is if I don't have anyone else to take somewhere.  It took me 3 days to work up the nerve to drive McCarter Hollow Road, even though I pass it every day and I *know* it comes out on Jayell, where I'm usually driving anyway.  When it's that hard to think outside the box, you've got to change more than your underwear.

So, this next year is about change and pushing boundaries, pushing envelopes, pushing my SELF out of her little hidey-hole.

Adventure Lady Takes Off

wherein I announce my intention of having grand adventures of which to blog.  About.

Sorry about the dearth of posts, peeps.  Nothing has been happening that I want to write about and I find myself in the all too familiar position of having been there/written that for far too long.

I will soon turn 49, which will be my 50th year breathing in and out.  If I'm counting correctly, that is.  We all know my math skills and the years I turned 36.  Oops.  But anyway, I've decided to make it My Golden Year.  And not knowing anything else to do for such an auspicious occasion, I've decided to Have Adventures.

Don't worry.  My idea of adventure is taking a road I've never traveled or trying a new food.  I do intend to try a zip line.  Damn.  Cat's out of the bag on that one.


To Infinity and Beyond!!!!
