Menu of the Day...First Course: Antihistamine
Menu of the Day:
First entree on the menu: A double dosage of antihistamine. God i love trees, but i hate them this time of year. (I blame global warming!) I am posting under the influence of these drugs and i feel foggy. Not quite the same as posting after chardonnay, but i needed to change the blog.
iTunes: The new Ben Harper cd. I love this cd. He's playing with some white guy named Charlie Musselwhite. Best song: Get Up! (The same as the title of the release.)
Confusion: What the hell are we supposed to call music these days anyway? They are no longer cds, they aren't albums. What are they anyway? I still call them cds or albums.
Earlier Attempt: I tried to start a blog post about louies and my Anti-Self Help Book. Chapter 2. How to Get People to Feel Sorry for You
What i learned: Writing an Anti-Self Help book is harder than it seems. I realize i just like coming up with the titles. I don't know what to come up with the content. Maybe it's the drugs, but i can't make this funny right now. I might try later. (It's saved in draft at least.)
What I am procrastinating about: Grocery shopping.... I have to make an hors d'voures (does anyone ever get the spelling of that correctly?) for a wine tasting tomorrow night and i have no idea what i'm doing.
Great Book: I am reading The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer and i can already tell this is going to be my very favorite book all year. It's spans four generations, (the very ones i have lived in from 1974 to current time, the characters are the same age.)
In one chapter one of the characters complains in a Christmas letter about e-book readers letting you know the percentage of the book read instead of the number of the pages.
And then the author of the Christmas letter writing character added a part that reminded me of what louielouie would say about that: "And he thought this was 92% stupid".
I HATE that too about the e-readers! Don't you just love when something annoys you and you read about how it annoys others too?
Why i mention this: I LOVE credence! I love it so much that i think i would have name one of my kids Credence....(assuming i got over my young years of naming them Harmony and Roman) And see? it doesn't matter if they are are girl or boy! (I always loved that John Mellencamp named one of his daughters Justice.)
The Best Thing That Happened This Week: I can't think of anything. And in fact while thinking about this i took the time to format this blog piece, thinking something might occur. But nothing comes to me. I'm leaving it here on the chance that y'all have some cool stuff to say about your week.
Redundancy: That was way too many versions of the word 'think' just now, (written above). Probably because i can't.
What surprised me about myself: I LOVE The Walking Dead series. I bought Season 1 & 2 for Brian for Christmas because he loves stuff like vampires and monsters and zombies. I did not expect that i would too get hooked on these characters in the show. It's similar to Lost actually, without the hidden messages. (Or maybe there are some and i just don't catch them, which would not be unusual because i am terrible with symbolism and metaphors and poetry. Just tell me what you mean already!) Anyway the zombies are sort of like the Others. I get why there is so much hype over this.
louieloue, why don't you take over? I'm not feeling it.
You're in Cannon Beach and have some time. I'm sure you are checking in even on vacation. Because after all My Blog is a Wonderland.... lol...i think i thought of that because Kylee was telling me how excited she was to see John Mayer. (I don't like him so much myself because i think he is an asshole at heart. (I, of course, know this because i have a Rolling Stone subscription.)
I just read that above and feel like i must be high. So i'm signing off.
I think i'll go and post on Facebook about how crappy i feel which is How To Get PeopleTo Feel Sorry for You.
