this post goes nowhere...

Please excuse the title above. I just didn't want to mislead any of you coming here for deep philisophical insight today.

The gray matter seems to be dwindling exponentially (I'm not sure if that is mathmatically possible...) because this morning, as I took the trash out, I stood in the driveway and thought for some time about whether or not I was going to Los Angeles today. There is something wrong when a grown man is unsure whether or not he is going to hop two time zones later that day. That man needs his head examined by a professional.

I bought paint for my office today. This is a milestone, as it indicates that I will, in fact, be staying in my office rather than vacating to organize a worldwide, arena sized Monsters of Intercession tour. The colors I chose are not Blush and Bashful, two shades of pink, on much darker than the other.... Extra points for anyone who can figure out that cultural reference without a hint. Kelsey is excluded from the contest.

More later, when the thoughts congeal....

Score, Ben the Lurker! :-) There are dozens of hillarious lines in that. "What separates us from the animal kingdom is our ability to accesorize"..."There is no such thing as natural beauty"...."He's such a gentleman, I bet the takes the dishes out of the sink before he..." Uh, nevermind.

little known fact, I played the lead in Steel Magnolias in community theatre in 1994, have it on video for proof, but not eager to share! :) ha ha!!! We have a photo some where of Nick, age 2, wearing my wig from the show!

not really fair that the first guess wins the prize - what about the rest of us?

so what are the colors then anyway?

Randy Bohlender said...

JM - this is precisely why I suggest everyone check this blog every twenty minutes. It's the internet, folks. It runs at the speed of light.

The colors, for those who are interested, are Jekyll Club Cherokee Rust and Mark Twain House Tan. Two shades of...uh, brownish. One much darker than the other....

So did you go to LA or were you in that travel zone where you couldn't remember if you were home or away somewhere? Maybe my mind is dwindling...

I luv ya more than my luggage, Randy.

Every southerner knows this movie, by heart. ;)

Randy Bohlender said...

But Liz, do ya'll think it's funny? Or just...normal? :-)

Kelsey Bohlender said...

So what's your favorite line from the movie, you people??

"Why don't you paint my door red and call me Elizabeth Arden!"

Emily Mea said...

That "culural reference" is easy - Steel Magnolias, but then again, I'm a southerner and that movie has been a staple of life since I was little.

Randy Bohlender said...

The question was too easy for southerners Sorta like "who was Darrell Waltrip's crew chief?". Anyone down there would know it.
