Free Association Day

This post is done Itchy-Style, and therefore dedciated to her. I'm sure she's thrilled ;)

Can you imagine what it must feel like to have a knitting needle jammed into your temple and then have someone grind around behind your eyeball with it? That's the kind of headache I have today.


For those sweet souls who have been reading my blog long enough to remember the story about running into my old coworker - who I used to hang out with, a LOT - at his mom's house - my neighbor now - when she had a Southern Living home party - not my taste really, but I was being neighborly - and when I said hi to him he said he totally didn't remember who I am - at all? I felt so stale. Anyway, you'll love this ... Guess who we got a wedding invitation for the other day? Yup. I almost sent the RSVP card back with a note saying, "I'd love to come, but I totally don't remember who you are, at all." But I didn't. I just checked "Regret" and mailed it off. It was probably his mom inviting us, again just to be neighborly. But - I'm sure! Ya know?

Oh, you know I'm just being fecitious. I wish them a happy and blessed life together all the same.

I just thought of this one time that a guy we know was talking about a new gun safe he bought. He was saying something about it being 6 feet high and 4 feet wide, and I said, "Is it soft as a downy chick?" He just looked at me, not getting it, but another friend there laughed their butt off. At least somebody thought it was funny. Don't you hate it when you crack a joke and all you get is crickets?

Does anyone else get it?

If anyone watches AI, what is UP with Mandisa getting the boot? That stinks - she is amazing. That was all about the junk in the trunk because vocally, she's the best woman they have. Am I right when I say Chris will win this? But I love Taylor. I love love LOVE Whiskey Tenor Taylor. I hope he makes it big regardless, because I could listen to him sing all day.

This post is the pits but I'm bored and stuff so I thought I'd ramble a little bit. Plus I'm all mopey because my best buddy is on vacation in Myrtle Beach this week and I'm all out of sorts with her gone. Even though she lives far away and I wouldn't see her if she was home anyway - but it's the principle of the thing.

On a happier note, the Hub found a mystery roll of film recently so he took it in to get it developed for curiosity's sake. It ended up being pictures of Incrediboy, when he was about 6 months old - out on the boat. Awwe. I can't wait to see them tonight.

Again ~ I know this is a tired and raggedy entry and I sound like the "band camp" girl ~ but like I said, I'm just bored and fretty today. Thanks for humoring me.

The only thing that came to my mind was Harvey...the 6ft tall invisible rabbit.

So..I googled it. And now I know. Or I think I know...but I'll not ruin it for the others. Just know...that I know. Oh yes...I know.

Hurray! A dedication to me! I am thrilled. You have no idea. :P

I hope your headache went away...a "real" pepsi and a big mac are sure to cure it. Oops! Did I just say eat a big mac? I have no idea if that would really cure a headache...really...I don't know. ;)

We already discussed AI earlier, but WTF!! Chris HAS to win! Even if he doesn't though, he'll be great no matter what he does in the music biz! CHRIS ROCKS!

I haven't watched much of AI this season but I agree about Mandisa, that stinks! And I think Chris will win. I can't remember which one Taylor is. I did like the little blonde southern gal, is she still there?

I liked this post, but I'm a rambler too.

Rebecca said...

hahaha, that is so funny... I think it's a riot that they invited you to their wedding!

I was glad to see Mandisa go - as much as she's so very talented, she's not American Idol type I don't think... same w. Paris - I'm so ready to see her go. I think the top three are going to be Chris, Kelly and Taylor - but I think Chris will take it all. I love Katharine too -but she's not AI material either I think. This year's group is by far the most talented yet.

And I'm dying to see Taylor sing a Michael McDonald song - arent' you!!! ;)

I am dumbfouonded that your old "I don't remember all" friend would send an invite to his wedding.....I would have written what first popped into your mind - not "regrets"! Hugs and I miss naive too!

Martie said...

Talked to naive tonight on her cell. They had Drew to a med center. He ate something and when she pushed on his tummy he SQUEAKED! He is breathing fine and can drink and eat so they think whatever it was is not there anymore. He's fine but grumpy and they're exhausted!

Makes me glad I'm here with Bailey!

Um, I tried to be where you are today but I got lost, very, very lost. So I found a knitting needle, wetted it, and put it my ear, but it hurt. So you are right.

Joy said...

I NEVER just humor you, clew. I come here because I want to and because I adore your writing style. So fresh and filled with vigor and wit. You are soooo my heroine!

Cheryl said...

Nice visual on the knitting needle thing. Eeeewww...

Loved the wedding invite story. I laughed out loud, and My Boy wants to know what about--just won't let it go.

Hey girl, the card thingie didn't work. What was it anyway?

I do not know the story about your old coworker and former friend but anyone who forgets a good friend needs to be kicked in the behind and told to WAKE UP!!!! But seriously I have had those days of bordem and naps. Maybe you could just take a nap and rest a little. OR you could read the Word and ask the Father what He wants you to do today. Of course by the time you read this it will be tomorrow.

I got it without looking it up. It did take me a minute though.

Liked Mandisa, but love Taylor and Katherine! I think Chris will win.

I really enjoyed reading this post. You may have been bored but you are NOT boring. :)

I haven't read *you* in a while, but love your blog.

I too was surprised that Mandisa got the boot. I love, love, love Taylor, but Chris will win.

Now, I gotta try and 'get' your joke!
