Everyone around love them love them Put it in your hands Take it take it There's no time to cry Happy happy Put it in your heart Where tomorrow shines

those of you who are cool will recognize the above as being off of REM's Out of Time album...those of you who aren't quite there...well, listen to that song, it's great! This topic has to do with time...specifically a few people being Out of Time...

if you have already read this in email formation, i apologize...

there is a question of the day and a statement of the day...these are actually from a few weeks ago, but whatever

QUESTION: When the moment is right, will you be ready?
STATEMENT (or response): When you gotta go, you gotta go.

Last year, i noticed that i knew the Cialis jingle...whycome? you may ask? Because the dang commercial was being played over and over again during the NCAA Basketball Tournament...

i sent an email out to some of you regarding this...while it's somewhat cool to take some things from National Advertising Campaigns and make them a part of your every day living (greeting your friends with a good and hearty "WASSSSSSSSUPPPPPP" [which, by the way, is still appropriate to do]), it's not so very cool to find your self humming the Cialis tune...

So...what is going on in my life and how it applies to the above.

A couple weeks ago, i went to the Magical city of Birmingham to hear a few people sing to me and a bunch of seafood...the event was on friday night and saturday afternoon and night. I went friday night and rocked out with some cool friends (mabes and marge in the HOUSE) and some weed...the circle of weed (not trust) was in our midst, and it was sketch!

**And let me make very clear that there was no weed being smoked in our own circle of trust...just the circle beside and behind us....

there was sister hazel and blues traveler...and they were good!then there came saturday afternoon...i got there with a few friends just as the Presidents of the United States of America were taking the stage (Oh, Graham, you should have been there, you could have met one of them, and checked that off of your top 100!)...and they were cool back then, they are cool now!

when they were done, me and my peeps shoved our way to the front-ish of the crowd...because Better than Ezra was coming up, and i will sing along and act like their biggest fan...And, did you know that BTE is SOOOOO HARDCORE that people catch their vibe in such a way they feel compelled to crowd surf...i mean, we aren't talking to the caliber of the POD people...

nonetheless, there were some intense moments with people nearly losing their shoes while elevated 6 feet in the air and such...well, here's where the Question and REsponse come in (almost)

As many of you know, i caught the staph earlier this year...staph of the left foot to be exact...i still can't wear shoes that cover the top of my foot, it's still a little sore (and a little swollen) flip and flop it is...well, i prefer to be surrounded by my peeps in events such as outside music events...especially because if they are around me, there is less of a chance that someone will step on or be dropped on my poor poor foot.

That did not happen in this case...there were friends to the left of me and friends to the right...but i was stuck in the middle right in front of some drunken men of some caliber...they were nice individuals, i'm sure...they didn't push me, they didn't step on me...but when the moment was right...they were ready...well sort of.

You see...sometimes when you gotta go, you gotta go...and these young men did. In a cup. i was no witness to that part of the event...only heard them talking about it...EWW! come on people...that's why the musicians have that you can go pee in an appropriate place (not right in front of me, [or behind me] for that is not how God intended it) and you can still here BTE rock your faces off!

after BTE was finished...and the gentlemen behind me were finished...i decided that i would leave the front-and-center atmosphere for the POD people, and for my boyfriends LIVE...who were ABSOLUTELY incredible!

That's what went on in my life a couple weeks ago...Here's what's coming up in my life in a couple weeks...

You guys remember last year (and if you don't remember this intense time in American history, i'm going to share it with you so perhaps you may feel the excitement yourselves)

In the 19th round, Anurag Kashyap of California became the winner of the 78th Annual National Scripps Spelling Bee. He beat 272 other contestents by correctly spelling the word: "appoggiatura," a melodic tone.
