Random Thoughts - 5-25-10

I love music from all genres. On my Ipod I have all kinds of music from Hard Rock to Worship music and all areas in between. I have Kevin Spacey crooning Mack the Knife and David Bowie’s Space Oddity. I just finished listening to the soundtrack from the musical Chicago and now I am listening to David Bowie’s Young Americans. This morning I bopped into work with Beyonce. Who knows what I will be listening to in 30 minutes?

When I eat a Reese’s peanut butter cup and there is a little bit of chocolaty goodness stuck to the bottom of the wrapper… I lick that goodness right off the paper. I don’t care who sees me.

My “earthy” self wants to get back to the basics. I want to use paper and glass and not so much plastic. However, plastic is more convenient. My “convenient” self likes plastic. It is a war within me that make little sense. I should stop trying to figure that out now.

I actually like being a college student now. This is diametrically opposed to my college experience the first time around. Not that I didn’t have a good time then… but I was a poor student, because I was not serious about it. I am serious about it now. My grades reflect that. I wish I could afford to go back and have a complete Mulligan with the bad grades still abiding on my transcript. Alas… they are not to be erased. If I win the lottery, I will go back and take those classes over and graduate with a 4.0!!

I don’t buy lottery tickets. Pretty sure that will negate that last sentence I just wrote.

Here’s a conversation I had with my friend Requelle (who has lost all her worldly possessions – and house – in the Great Nashville Flood of 2010) after she was gifted with some money from a group of believers in Florida.

Me: So… they gave you some money? That’s great. Let’s go to a movie!! You can pay.

Req: What part of “homeless” do you not understand?

Me: It’s been all about YOU lately!!

Req: If you had called me yesterday, you could probably have talked me into going to Tahiti (Req had a bad day of insurance people/meetings yesterday)

Me: Tahiti? Nah. Montana!!

Req: The beaches in Tahiti would be great

Me: The cowboys in Montana would be better.

Req: Surf… sun… beach…

Me: Bugs.

Req: Hello!!? Montana! Huge bears up there and you are worried about bugs?

Me: Yeah, but you can see bears coming at you. Its not like you are going to wake up in the middle of the night and say, Oh… a got a bear bite!

Req: You are the most random person.

Me: Yes. Yes I am. I will blog about that now.

Well, your job has been fulfilled today. I'm laughing out loud.

Commenting on random thoughts is much more difficult.
