Digging Out.

Hola, amigos! I am digging out right now, but wanted to pledge to you, dear readers, that I will post an update ABOUT MY vacation this week. That is my solemn vow. You should know it was amazing, even when someone asked me where I was from and I was all "America!" And they were all "You are in America, you jackass." And even when I was unceremoniously shat upon by a pigeon, because it wasn't just your run-of-the-mill bird crapping. It was a full-on SHIT ASSAULT that covered your blogmistress in warm, gooey bird poo and rendered me temporarily immobile.

"J? Oh my God, what is it?!"

"You just got shit on. By a bird."

*dies laughing*

"Oh my God? What the fuck? A falcon?" (Seriously, you should have seen what this bird of prey unleashed on me. My clothes needed to be changed. And probably burned.)

So a few minutes ago, I am in my office sorting through a floppity-jillion emails, grooving to the easy listening station. I was suddenly appalled. (Guys? that boogie oogie oogie song is playing. Come on.) I shot an email to Grace:

I listen to B 101 during the day. And I woke up at 4 AM in Buenos Aires and Dazed and Confused was on - and I was all shocked about what d-bags all of those people were and baffled that we thought it was really cool.

This is obviously what happens when you turn 30. I kinda hate myself.

To which Grace replied:

Show me someone who doesn't like soft rock and I will show you a liar.

This is why she is my best good friend. She nailed it!

More to come. (Like why was the song "I Adore Mi Amore" in our heads all week? Is that honestly the best Spanish song we could come up with? And other thoughts.)

Al - they get high while driving (!!) and smash people's mailboxes! and I was all, no don't do it, Randy Pink, you are better than that. You're not Dawson, for JC's sake. But no, he went and smashed it. And then I totally related to the old man that tries to shoot them. Because come on, assholes. That was just mean.

HV - its all about the times, man! They didnt know any better! We are talking about HS students in the 60s. Dawson wore overalls, for Christ sake! They werent in their right minds! All they wanted to do is kick some ass and drink some beer. And they are almost out of beer.

Tampering with mailboxes is a felony offense, so I definately agree with the old man...I do not agree with breaking the law by any means, but come on, HV, dont judge the 60s children. I am sure D and J did alot in those times they werent proud of, but look at them now, they turned out OK.

I can only hope that we can say the same for Pink.

Someone once told me that getting shit on by a bird is good luck. Like if it's raining on your wedding day, type of thing. But in reality, they are usually things people say to make you feel better.
