Blast from the past: LJ December 2004

Oh Great!
Thanks to ordinarywhirled, I have the NKOTB’s the Right Stuff. And the video was filmed uptown at Tipitina’s! Some one please cauterize my brain.

Thoughts on a Sunday morning
Out of nowhere, during breakfast, the Chris Parnell song from SNL about Jennifer Garner pops into my head. But only the chorus:
In Cairo, Istanbul, and Tokyo,
She’s my hoe,
I’m her beau, Don’t you know,
We got flow!
And when we’re not workin’, we jump onto my yacht and go!
Drink bordeau, eat escargot,
Just take it sloooooow…

What am I supposed to do with that?

Then, on my way to church, I see this boy (waiting in line outside the Bluebird) and he’s repeatedly throwing a large umbrella point first into the wet ground. Normal kid behavior, right? Except that he’s talking on a cell phone the entire time. What 10-year-old needs a cell phone? And who was he talking to at 10 a.m. on a Sunday morning? Curious.

great quote of the day
Just because you can doesn’t mean you should

OK, so I was having this really frustrating dream early this morning. I was trying to get somewhere, but I kept running into all these obstacles. I had these huge packages/boxes that I had to carry, so I tried to hide them under a nearby house. I was planning to come back for them later. Well underneath the house was a skunk who tried to spray me and then attacked me. I was struggling to get away from the skunk and woke myself up. Awake, I thought, weird a skunk in my dream. I fell back asleep and the skunk attacked me again!

According to random dream websites, “seeing or smelling a skunk in your dream predicts a social disappointment.” So what does it mean when the skunk repeatedly attacks you. That your “social disappointment” is going to bite you on the ass?

Yesterday
Went to traffic court. Don’t these stupid muthas know that they should look presentable if they want the MAN to reduce their tickets? Woo Hoo, reduce from 20 miles over the speed limit to a non-moving violation. No insurance increase for me! Plus entertaining court time. Really it was worth the $95 trial fee.

Ate at Juan’s Flying Burrito. MMMMMM, house special veggie quesadilla, with leftovers for lunch in about 30 minutes. [insert image of Homer drooling here; please use your imagination; I’m too lazy to locate an image]

Was re-seduced by EBay. I bid on 2 Bingles. I could’t help myself. The mantle where all the other Bingles are hanging out is right behind the computer. They were giving me peer pressure. How could I help myself? Anyway, I only bid around $30 total.

So I was having your basic ordinary dream where I was conversing with my dead grandmother. Nothing too out of the ordinary for me. I was being fussed at for something ridiculous. Although annoying, it was really very nice and comforting. But then my dream took a weird turn and I woke up really sad.

So now I’m supposed to be putting together the office Christmas party and instead I’m just sort of weepy…and procrastinatey.

Food Coma
Just finished the office party. I think I ate for 3 straight hours.

driving back to work
I was behind this car with a cross shaped antenna-bobber-thingy. It was going a mile a minute, left and right, as the car drove along. All I could think was “good thing it isn’t a crucifix because Jesus would be hurling right now.”

Whew–
Long weekend with much holiday festivities, so far I’ve baked 3 types of bread and made 2 kinds of candy. We’ve mailed off packages to assorted friends & relatives. And we’ve been to…I have no idea how many Christmas parties. And I only have 1 present left to buy!

Oh and my friend, Sassy, gave me an Infant of Prague statue as my present. I’m so excited!

No Bingles from ebay for me.
However, Sassy & her beau, OFFKaD (our friend formerly known as Duane) bought me a 1999 Bingle at the same antique/junque mall as the infant of prague statue. Which means that I have Bingles for every year from 1998 through 2004, plus a 1987, a really old one (somewhere between 40 and 50 years), and one that’s from when Godchaux’s and Maison Blanche merged, so maybe early 80’s?

HA!
I come by insanity naturally. I told my Mom about my Infant of Prague statue and she offered to make me clothes for it for my birthday.

My last thought last night before going to sleep was that he needed a little red cape with gold brocade.
