Field of dreams {Listography 2011}.

                      
Each Wednesday, Emily, @ Notorious MLE, Danielle, @ Elleinad Spir, and myself are working our way through the lists of Listography 2011.


An immediate disclaimer.  

This list is a total cop-out.  I'm still battling with my laundry... Trying to gear myself up for crawling jumping back on the "Shred Mill" (with the help of a rockstar shred-it crew)... and ironically tossing both aside for a blood orange margarita (weeknight version) and a little mindless t.v.  

As much as I'd love to meander through Diagon Alley, bounce through the Hundred Acre Wood with Tigger, eat my way through Willy's Chocolate Factory, hide away in a heavenly Secret Garden, finally catch a glimpse of Charlie's face, shoot the breeze with Chaka... or Papa Smurf... or better yet- the coolest cat of all- the Fonz... This week's list of fictional places I really wish existed is proving to be quite short, at least for the present moment.

[Can you tell I need a vacation?  Either that, or I simply watched a few too many 70's television re-runs- or both?]


Please one-up me here... I won't mind a bit.  Which fictional places do you wish to be a reality??   If you have a list of your own, head over to Danielle's and link up... or simply share with a comment =).   I'm looking forward to a few moments of necessary distraction.

*Next up... A reality that I wish were fictional.

  2. Oh I need a break like something bad. I had like 5 mintues this morning and I just had to stop by and say hey and see what your up to. You probably wonder why I get so busy and I'm so frassled sometimes in my emails but I will explain one day when I have more than 5 minutes (hopefully by friday) but anyway- love this post and I don;t even know what mine would be but i do wish I lived in a land of peace and relaxation with sun and water and yummy fruity drinks! LOL!

  4. I loved Fantasy Island! After going deep into Downton Abbey (PBS.com or Netflix for those who have it), I would love to live there for a few days. Really, I just want breakfast in bed and pretty clothes.

  5. Wow! This brought back memories!! Every Saturday night my parents would go out and my sister and I would make/bake a snack (apple crisp was our favorite!) and watch The Love Boat and Fantasy Island! Both are 'places' I'd love to visit in real life!

  7. Love Boat! YES!!! I feel like I need a vacation too. I always wished there was a place like Central Perk where I could go get coffee any time of the day and see ALL MY FRIENDS there. That would be awesome!

  12. Just read about your Shred-it challenge on Carrie's blog. Sounds exciting and good luck!

  13. You and me both, Torrie. Waking up and doing yoga then drinking fruity cocktails while wiggling my toes in warm sand. Sigh.

    I saw your blog name on the Shred challenge. I'm not specifically doing Shred but the baby is finally letting me get workouts in so I'm with you in workout spirit at least. :)

  15. My pile of to do laundry is so gigantic it's not even funny!

  16. Love the sound of the blood orange margarita - that's my kind of laundry folding! I love both these TV places - which I thought were real. Really? They're not? Many times I feel like Julie from the Love Boat ushering little people around and creating constant entertainment, but sadly I don't have that sweet smile and perky hair. ( Whatever happened to Julie?)

  17. You just listed 3 of my favorite hideaways: smurfville, fantasy island, and the love boat. This calls for a drink!

    xo,
