the sangwich: i'm addicted to subway. i get all different kinds of subs. but what does BMT mean? i know it's greasy, salty lunch meats (which i might occasionally consume) but am wondering what BMT stands for.
the turban: i'm obsessed with turbans. specifically, the lead singer of "the fabulous thunderbirds" wearing one in early publicity photos. i remember elizabeth taylor wore them in the 70's. i need to bring that look back.
the phone: i hit some wrong buttons on my blackberry and lost everything except a set of phone numbers from a year ago. what a pain in the butt. i was going to throw it in the well and buy an iphone, then i saw how much they cost.
the deer: we have a large buck hanging around. his antlers are huge and they look almost furry. when i tried to walk to dogs out back, he didn't budge. i turned around and went back inside, since i'm told the deer are not so friendly. we also saw a mother deer nursing 3 little baby deer (fawn?) the other day. it was strange to see, almost surreal. they were so close to the road as we whizzed by.
the media: i watched a lot of news shows last night. a lot of coverage of the michael jackson story and today's funeral. i had a ton of stuff to say about it, but my lunch break's almost over. so i will say this: i think it's sad he died. and i think it's normal for fans to grieve the lost of a beloved artist. but the level of grief seems so off the charts.
i think people are looking for their own "generation changing event." for some folks it's JKF or MLK being shot. or maybe the end of the vietnam war. i remember a little about watergate, jonestown, and elvis dying. i think my big event was lady diana passing away in the car wreck. it was just shocking to me that someone so famous and beautiful could die like that. then 9/11 made that seem like a small ripple in a big pond.
