Little Miss Sunshine is Frozen

Current Mood: Amused and Adored

you were meant to live large
come on take charge
let's go light the world up
let's not wait until the end
to be the things we wish we'd been
~ “Super Trouper” by Superchic(k)

I was running late when I woke up early this morning. Now, when I say ‘early’ – I mean earlier than usual. When I say ‘running late’ – I actually mean that I was supposed to leave the house by 6am for a breakfast date. Luckily for me, the person I was meeting had his own ‘comedy of errors’ this morning, so me arriving late actually could still be considered early since he was running even later than me. Thank goodness neither of us are jerks – or else our fun breakfast at iHop could have become our last breakfast ever, as he is one hell of a shot and I am an opponent of the death penalty; but a proponent of torture for accountability.

Did you notice that I wrote iHop in the same manner that Apple writes iPod? It’s become a habit - capitalize the second letter of a word, instead of the first. It’s a silly habit, to be sure, yet one that has become a comfort in my old age. Technology is advancing so quickly that sometimes I still say “walkman” instead of iPod. Seriously, does anyone even own a “Sony Walkman” any more? I am not talking about the “Sony Discman” (which is also prehistoric – but can still be found on eBay and in some Pawn shops). I have a bunch of unlabled cassette tapes which need to be reviewed and possibly buried in a time capsule along with a yearbook picture from 10th grade AND my incessant use of the word “awesome” (unless it is stated in an Eric Cartman-like manner).

Speaking of 10th grade, what a year for music that was. Nirvana’s 'Nevermind', went #1 – putting Seattle on the map of ‘coolest places to live’, the Beastie Boys released Check Your Head, House of Pain, Kriss Kross, and Marky Mark ’rapped’ their way into the lives of teenage girls everywhere. Interestingly, three bands I saw this past October, REM, (Automatic for the People) NIN (Broken), and STP (Core) all had PRIME commercial success with the albums they released!!!

Good God. . . time has flown by! And one honest friend was sweet enough to point out today that life is all downhill after 30. hee hee

Looking forward to seeing you on Friday!

‘He Just Isn’t Into You’ – but I am. LOL
