I’ve Got Nostalgic Pavements

current state of mind: unsettled

And when I saw you kissing that girl
My heart, it shattered;
And my eyes, they watered
And when I tried to speak, I stuttered
~ “We Get On” by Kate Nash

Do you remember ‘Friendly Guy (FG)’ from my plane trip in September 2008? If not, go here. Well, ‘FG’ and I are still friends and he blessed me with a beautiful picture he took in Nicaragua over Christmas. It shows the sunset, rainforest, the ocean, and a volcano all in one beautiful image which will forever be seared into my brain as a place of peace. I have made it my new desktop wallpaper in hopes that some of the peace will find its way into my brain. Here’s to hoping . . .

It is January 3, 2012 and I am still in the running for keeping my New Year resolution of “laughing every day”. Yesterday’s laughter was courtesy of Daniel Tosh who makes me feel rather ashamed and dirty when I watch him. His blatant irreverence is funny; but, shouldn’t be. Yesterday, I also was able to laugh at the morons who go on Fear Factor. If you know that you will likely have to dangle from a helicopter or lie in a coffin filled with snakes, why in the world would you wear a two piece string bikini that is at least one size too small on top? Seriously?!?! Boy shorts and a sports bra would be far less asinine. I do not understand these women. Also, for the record, last night’s stunt with the snakes was far worse for the snakes than for the humans, so I don’t see what the contestants were crying about.

As for the UFC fights on Friday Night – a shout out to Alistair Overeem for providing a brutal kick to Brock Lesnar’s liver. I understand that I should have been cheering for the American; but let’s be realistic, Lesnar is a db. And while I feel a little sorry for him having to retire on a loss, I don’t think I will ever forgive him for having that ridiculous sword tattoo on his chest. He should get its handle engraved with the words “douche bag”. Just sayin’!

PERSONAL NOTE: Looking forward to lunch with you on Thursday!

CONFIDENTIAL NOTE: I will win the pullover.
