So often I think outside the box (hee!) and actually consider getting a Brazilian wax. And then I get my eyebrows and upper lip waxed and then I think, “Oh yeah. Nope. Thanks. All set with all of that end up near my lady parts and other nether regions.” And I don’t even think it’s the hot wax…I mean, I think I would be okay with that part. It’s the whole…..ripping off the wax and hair with that piece of mysterious white cloth/gauze. No thanks. And once you start that process can you really stop? I guess you could. PLUS the whole thing is awkward…some asian lady you don’t know is all up an in your Kool-Ade. I can’t imagine going to someone you actually KNOW can be any easier. “Hey, Sarah…I’m going to come by the spa on Wednesday to get me ChooChoo waxed. Then afterwards let’s get some Mexican!”
Do you guys have a running list of songs in your head that you cannot get enough of no matter how many times you hear them? (God I hope so.) For me it’s Coldplay’s Yellow. And Champagne Supernova by Oasis. All I Want Is You by U2. Nothing Compares to U – Sinead. Mmmm Bop Hanson. That song I’m literally too lazy to look up by that band that Eddie Vedder and the guy from Soundgarden put together. Losing My Religion REM. And Creep by Radiohead. Which I heard today on the radio and was like “Aww man, they hate this song and won’t perform it anymore. Which sucks because while it is their biggest commercial hit across pop culture, it actually is a really great song. “What the hell am I doing here? I don’t belong here.”
Did you know that Stephen King hated Stanley Kubrick’s vision of The Shining? That bugs me too. That’s why Mr. King made the TV miniseries with the goofy guy from Wings. But why? The most perfect version of that movie was already made. REDRUM! All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy. Ok I get that those are the WORDS that Stephen wrote. But the vision…Jesus. Who didn’t get chills with the twins, or the blood pouring in slow motion down the elevator shaft. The whole thing. Brilliant. Which reminds me, I have yet to see Clockwork Orange. And I’m really dying to see it (not literally!) but have heard the dialogue is hard to decipher. Great. I’ll get to it. It’s on the list of a million things I am planning on getting to.
After Creep was Franz Ferdinand’s Take Me Out. I LOVE the beginning of that song. So good.
Ok so, for the record, I do think that Sammy Hagar is the best lead singer of Van Halen. There I said it.
I didn’t really have a theme for tonight’s post. But I did want to touch upon the Oprah finale. I have to admit, I feel like I missed out on something. But like most of the country, or so I thought, I had to work during the time it was on. I did tivo the last few shows, and I’m completely addicted to her OWN show “Behind the Scenes.” During her last show, today, she almost took the form of Joel Osteen. Preaching to her flock. And she said something that struck me…
“It doesn’t matter what your mama did, it doesn’t matter what your daddy didn’t do, it is your life. You’re responsible for the energy that you create for yourself and you’re responsible for the energy that you give to others.”
Whoa. It’s so true. I live my life never truly looking forward and one foot stuck in the past. I find it difficult to live in the moment. I find it difficult to be happy and hopeful about the future. Maybe now after 25 years I should be moved by something Ms. Winfrey has said. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not about to go out and build a school in Africa – way too mentally lazy for that, oh and BROKE – but I really need to do better at being happy about what I do have and not brood upon all the things I missed out on or could have. I hear the term “Let go and let God” sometimes and it’s a good one. I’m not really sure at this point what or how I feel about “God.” Which is easier to believe: That He exists, or doesn’t exist? Believe it or not, I don’t want to take the lazy way out on this one. I just don’t know.
Ok I’m totally going on and on. I got to bed super late last night, so I’m going to wrap this up. From HooHa’s to Oprah…I always try to at least keep it interesting.
