I am so behind on everything that it’s not even funny. I’ve been give blog awards that I haven’t responded to, I’ve won prizes that I barely acknowledged, and I didn’t even post about my New Year’s Eve dinner with Linda. (and I even took pictures) I promise I will get to the prizes and awards, especially the awesome t-shirt I won from my friend over at A World of Progress. Go read her blog…really, go here and do it now. I’ll wait right here until your done.
Ah, your back. I take it you enjoyed her blog? Good… I know I just did a post on apathy and I suppose that it is trickling down to this post as well…or running up or over or whatever you want to call it. I guess I am at a loss for words and I didn’t want to fall into publishing crap posts like, “I didn’t do anything this week” or “There’s nothing to report.” Why even publish a post like that?
Ok, well screw it. Here’s my boring post. I went shopping with Amy today to the mall. While we were driving there, she helped my run my lines for the play. We got so involved in reading the lines that I forgot where we were and I turned around because I thought I was going the wrong way. The problem was that I wasn’t going the wrong way so that when I turned around, I was then going the wrong way. Confusing? You bet.
Haven’t you ever been somewhere that you know you should know but for some stupid reason you don’t recognize it? Even if it’s just for a few short seconds and then all of a sudden you do that “I could have had a V8” thing and realize where you are? It happens to me occaisionally. I’d call it the onslaught of altzheimer’s except it’s happened to me periodically throughout my life.
Anyway, Amy and I had a good laugh as I turned the car around and headed back to the mall. This gave us a chance to run the lines a few more times before we actually got to the mall. Once there, Amy bought herself a pair of jeans (I think they are called boyfriend jeans) and a top. She wanted to get the soundtrack to Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat but there was no music store in the mall.
Now what decent mall doesn’t have at least one store where you can buy music cds and movies? Amy claims that it is because the iPod is killing the music CD. In the 80’s the Buggles sang, “Video killed the radio star,” and I guess in the 10’s (is that possibly correct??????), the tune would go, “The iPod killed the music CD.” (or something like that)
You know, it’s kind of fun writing a rambling post that goes from one subject to another. Currently, I just finished a dinner of chicken breast, corn, tomatoes, and okra. Damn tasty and I didn’t even eat all of the chicken breast. I was so pleased with myself that I made myself a ginormous bloody mary to celebrate. But just one cause I’m on a diet. (that’s why it had to be a really big one.)
Well folks, that’s all I got in me. I’m off to visit Amy and Scott and Sean and a bunch of their friends. It’s lightly snowing here and I’ve just finished my bloody mary. Damn, I want another but I want to lose weight more so I will stand tall and strong. Does anyone know of any alcohol that’s 20 calories or less a shot?
