Thoughts on a Hump Day

It’s Wednesday already. And it’s 2007! How did it already get to be a Wednesday in 2007? Has anyone else suffered a blurry lapse in time recollection? I don’t remember any bright white lights engulfing my car on a dark forest highway at night, but perhaps it was the Aliens of Christmas Extraterrestrial. It just seems like the last month flew by at warp speed – my camera has the pictures to prove it happened, but it was so quick! Like a hummingbird, or Nicole Ritchie driving the wrong way on the freeway, or a Rey Mysterio 619 kick to the head. Curious.

Anywhoo, here are a couple random thoughts cruising through my sluggish think center today:

* I got some new clothes. They’re classy and versatile and comfortable, and they match all kinds of other things in my wardrobe. So why did it still take me half an hour to decide what combination of new/old clothes to put on this morning? It was like someone had asked me to do long division, backwards, in my head, while singing “Puttin’ On The Ritz.” I stared at the closet and just couldn’t put two things together. And when I went to put on my makeup there was a flashing “syntax error - can not compute” in my eyes. I think a nap would reboot my system. But I have no time for a nap today. And I think I’m wearing two different socks.

* When your cubicle walls block out the natural light source from the window, there comes a point in the day when everything is day-glo from the flourescant lights over your desk. It’s true – look at a sheet of regular white paper … it’s brilliant like the silvery fire of the full moon. And those lime green post-it notes are like neon knife to the retina. And don’t even think about opening that box of Nerds! OH!! THE COLORS!!!

Well folks, aren’t you glad I took these brief moments to share with you the contents of my head? At least you don’t have “Disco Inferno” stuck in your head, like I do. Or do you now? Mwahahaha!!

Today's earworm here at Messenger Post has been "Use Me" by Bill Withers, interspersed with "I Love the Night Life" by someone whose name I forget.

The refrain:
I LOVE THE NIGHT LIFE
I GOT TO BOOGIE
IN THE DISCO ROU-OW-OWND
OOOH YEAHHH ...

Have fun.

The strangest earworm lately for me is a mash of Gnarls Barkley's "Crazy" and Michael Jackson's "Thriller." Think about it - they sort of work together. And Vincent Price is laughing ... laughing at me!!

I didn't want to tell you this and hurt your feelings ... but Vincent Price has always been laughing at you.

He's just a bastard that way.
