So my friend recently moved. While I was catching up on the past 5 months of her life via her blog, I read a post not unlike one that I’ve written before. She and her iPod have gotten very close the past few days and she commented that a lot of times the songs that play somehow reflect on your current situation (or mood, in my case). I remember saying that long ago when I used to Metro to and from work in downtown D.C. and the songs that played on the train were many times like a mantra or my song of the moment. That still holds true for me – even with the radio – these days. I am not sure if we mentally project the song (you know what I mean) to reflect our current emotions or state at the time or if it’s just random acts of weirdness, but I like it. “Lightning Crashes” is on right now and guess what?? It’s all stormy and lightning and all that jazz.
I heard two songs this morning on the way to work that almost brought me to tears (for different reasons): “Wake Up Exhausted” by Tegan and Sara and “Someone To Say Hi To” by K’s Choice. I gotta unplug the iPod. lol. It’s been a few rough weeks. And “Better Days” by Goo Goo Dolls just came on. Seriously…it’s crazy.
I’m still playing “Let My Love Open the Door” each day in the hopes that it will give me enlightenment or something.
People are strange. I’ve said it before and I’m saying it again. Why, oh, why would you stop talking to someone for no apparent reason? I don’t get it. People kill me! And it’s just JUVENILE. If there’s a reason, so be it – it’s all good (or it will be). But with no reason, no nothing…it’s just crazy. (yes, I know how rich that is coming from me)
I’m addicted to Freecycle.
I’m also reading 3 books right now – ‘Are You the One for Me‘ & ‘Broken Music: A Memoir‘ by Sting and ‘Under the Tuscan Sun: At Home in Italy.’ And my Rolling Stone. It’s no wonder I can’t keep my head on straight.
I’ve realized I’m much funnier in real life than on here. I love my friends who can post on here and it be the funniest thing I’ve read in weeks…especially the kid stories. Too cute!
That’s all from the mosh pit for now.
