[press 2.]

The themes for today are: Laughing Out Loud to Yourself and Good Music.

LOLTY [please pronounce phonetically] #1

Bink and I travelled to my favorite coffee shop for muffins and flat whites.  There were a lot of people there this morning and I noticed that every single one of them was lone-wolfing it.  Everyone was at a table by themselves… this made me feel better about life.

Anywho, a man to my right was reading the paper all by himself, drinking his coffee.  Then, all the sudden he laughed out loud SO hard it scared Bink and myself.  I looked over to see if I could tell what he was reading… it was obvious… the funnies.  He was reading the comics.  Precious.

Good Music #1

I got an email from my dearest, Dan Long, with this song:

STRONG work, DLo.

Everyone start singing and dancing now!

LOLTY #2

I am embracing randomness in my life now.  Coincidences that happen should be glorified.  The ridiculousness should be pointed at, shared.

So I sent this message to one of my friends [one of those that you don’t really know… but you know of them] on Facebook:

Subject: from left field.

“i don’t really know you [in fact, have we actually met? i think maybe once… twice… unclear] but you were definitely in my dream last night. i was trying to get you and your band [band? are you in a band? unclear] to come and play an opening at my gallery in portland [p.s. i don’t own a gallery nor live in portland nor america, for that fact] and you were being very difficult [so, yeah, thanks for that… i just wanted you guys to play!]. and you said you had about 30 people in your band and i said, “well, that’s not going to work… we don’t have enough room.” and you said, “well, then then we’ll just have to play on the roof.” and i said, “awww forget it… we’ll find someone else.” but then you were there, playing on the roof, with like a hundred people! stomping, jumping up and down! and it was all very blogothequesque. and then the roof fell in and you guys fell all over everyone in the gallery [me and all my friends]. it was insane. but then we all just got up and danced anywho… you all played on broken instruments. it was amazing.

thought i’d share.

have a good one.”

I sent it and then immediately regretted it… “Rachel, why do you do such dumb things!” but then later remembered about embracing life and all it’s random beauty… glorify, point.  Then, I got this message on my Facebook wall from Michael [the victim of all this ridiculousness]:

“i am laughing out loud right now. thanks for making my day.
please keep me posted on further happenings such as this…”

Phew!  Close call.

Good Music #2

Another great find from Ashely.  Thank you again, fine lady:

Very pretty.

LOLTY #3

In a euphoric state of loving life, I tried to call my best friend, Nic, to share.  Nic hasn’t figured out how to call me yet [bless his heart] and he picks up his phone 35% of the time, so talking to him is a rarity that I get very excited about.  Today, it went to voicemail [damn you, 65%!] but I didn’t care… I was ready to leave a happy message…

– Hey Nic, it’s me.  You must be busy… Guess wha–

– I’m sorry.  We did not get your message, either because you were not speaking or we could not hear you.  To disconnect, press 1.  To try again, press 2.

[press 2.]

– Ha, okaaaaay… Well your voicemail lady doesn’t like me, bu–

– I’m sorry.  We did not get your message, either because you were not speaking or we could not hear you.  To disconnect, press 1.  To try again, press 2.

– I’m sorry.  We did not get your message, either because you were not speaking or we could not hear you.  To disconnect, press 1.  To try again, press 2.

[press 2.]

– [cracking up to myself… SO HARD.]  …hahahaI’m sorry… Hold on, let’s see if your woman’s gonna cu–

– Sorry you’re having trouble.  Goodbye!

Oh man.  I was crying laughing to myself.  Why exactly?  Unclear.

Good Music #3

…Ashe suggested this band and I was so psyched to find this song cuz I keep hearing it on the radio and I laaaaarve it.  Hope you enjoy!
