Here’s what’s new with me lately.
People have been saying weird stuff to me this week. Like, on the street. Living in an urban environment, getting weird stuff said to you by strangers is not necessarily a new thing, but the quantity this week? Has been high. For instance, the other day I was walking along with my iPod in my ears. I happened to turn my head to the right, and caught this dude looking at me as he was riding his bike in the bike lane. You know what he says? “BOO!” Like a Casper the Too-Friendly Ghost thing. How is that something that you say? Then, I had a patron who I was doing some lengthy research for thank me by saying “I appreciate it, snickerdoodle.” This person had acted totally normal up until that point, and then busts out with snickerdoodle. Who DOES that?
I was flipping channels the other day, and I expended angry emotion at Bret Michaels. And it wasn’t for overuse of pancake make-up either. For some reason, in that moment, I was supremely insulted that Bret was trying to convince me that he was really truly LOOKING FOR LOVE. Like he is really looking for love! Come on! Is anyone on earth buying the premise? Jeez. Now why this all of a sudden made me mad I cannot tell you, but what can I say? I’m just feeling my feelings, people.
In other news, my beloved Nordic Boy was sick this week. Selfishly, this was nice for me because he didn’t have to go on any biznazz trips. I’m not saying that I want him to be sick, because that would be evil. And you know what else? Nordic Boy, when left to his own devices and in control of the remote, watches Brainy Television. Hours of it. I mean, I watch my share of things that will enrich my brain, but let’s face it, lots of times I am watching reruns of the Munsters or something. But this week, every time I turned around it was science and history and shit. Now I feel bad for the hours of Beauty and Geek I have made him watch.
At the library, there are little kid behaviors that I find myself extremely envious of. Like how kids will just lie down on the floor, like, whenever they friggin’ feel like it. And how some of them wear capes in public. And how they get transported around in strollers or red wagons. So jealous.
Also! I am going on a trip back to the Midwest next week. I have to get some sun, and this spring has been CRAP on the west coast. Anyone want me to send them a postcard? I totally will. Email me your mailing address and I will try and find the cheeziest Michigan postcard that you can imagine. I don’t think they make postcards of my hometown, but I’ll come up with something.
I talked to Alli today. She reminded me of this post I wrote a while ago. I cracked myself up with that one. Mainly because I didn’t really have to write anything. The photos alone were enough.
That’s all that’s in my brain today, fellas.
