Okay, I was trying not to write until the NEW YEAR. I wanted to leave this hackneyed* thing alone. Why? Because I wanted to leave on a good note and I'm thinking about starting a new/different blog. Hopefully, more geared toward art. The reason is because keeping up with this is a commitment, and if you've committed it's best to just go with it. Before it I was making fun of myself (that probably won't stop), posting half-assed entries no one could relate to, and well, not having any readers because I made the awful, awful mistake of only telling a few in 2006 (The 3 that read stop shaking those fists. I hear ya!) and then begging everyone I know to read by 2007. It'll be a fresh start and hopefully less stupid in my opinion. Also, everyone will feel included this time. Eitherway, YOU will know about the changes but if I don't know a thing about it yet, how can I tell anyone anything? I've been dwelling on it for a while. We'll get there.

Now, why I really came on here. When I walked into work this morning a co-worker/work buddy stopps me abruptly as I'm pacing quickly toward my desk.

She says in the most sincere tone, "This is kind of weird. I have something to tell you."

I respond a tired, "yeah?"

It's not even 8:30 yet, scarf still on.

co-worker/work buddy, "I was listening to the radio this morning and HOW BIZZARE BY OMC CAME ON.."

I'm smiling and smirking as excitement is elevating. Just waiting for it...

co-worker/work buddy exclaims, "AND I THOUGHT OF YOU!!!"

Okay, you have no idea how much this has made my morning and that somebody I've known for less than 2 years who doesn't really know me at all already associates me with this song. My life is complete.

Let me explain! This past summer I was nestled away from everyone in the HR room (I'm not even in Human Resources). We would bring our CD's in and blast them in the communal boombox. Naturally, I made everyone listen to my $3 copy of OMC (from Goodwill). But mostly, it was my summer anthem song between 1996/97. I'll leave that one for another day.

Now, that's a good note.

*hackneyed is also the dictionary word of the day! Yeah, I get those cool word of the day e-mails.

Christmas came a little early this year...

This is why we can't have nice things.
