Well. This is awkward.

I'm finding a need to blog right now, to entertain myself, see.  But the thing is, I've already wished you a Happy Easter.  So one may naturally assume not to hear from me until Monday.

It reminds me of those hilariously awkward moments when you say goodbye to someone, only to find you are taking the same elevator, walking out of a building, all the way down the street and actually parked right next to them.  Do you walk together, since you already said goodbye?  Maybe you walk together at the same pace but do you keep talking? It's funny to take notice at what people do.  I love awkward times like these and how different people react.  Me - I laugh and joke the rest of the way.  Bye!  How bout now?  Bye!  Ok, see you later!  Bye Bye now.  Ok seriously, Bye!

Gosh do I love awkward moments.

Back in college, in the pre-9/11 world, for fun we would go to the airport.  Sometimes we would make up signs and while everyone was getting off the plane, we'd hold them up with a completely straight face, and write a name like "Stiouewazuitegrnt"  on it.   You know everyone reads the signs when they come off the plane. I loved people's expressions trying to read them. Some traveling in pairs would try to pronounce it to each other.  I wish we had thought to videotape some of that stuff.

Then we'd get into a crowded elevator, stand on opposite sides, and after it filled with people, we'd say -

"did you remember the tickets?"
"Haha, no you have the tickets."
"I don't have the tickets."
"What?!  You're kidding!!"
"YOU SAID YOU'D BRING THE TICKETS.  I CAN NEVER COUNT ON YOU, NOW WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO?? UNCLE ZIGGY IS COUNTING ON US!"

I'd love to be on one of those prankster reality tv shows.  My favorite ever was Trigger Happy TV.  Ever see it?  For 30 minutes I would be laughing so hard my sides were in stitches, I couldn't breathe, and tears would be streaming down my face.  I'd get a grip during commercial breaks, and then immediately start back.  You tube won't let me embed so head HERE to watch some funny stuff.  Please do.

Here's a ridiculous photo to accompany my ridiculous post:


Even if I failed to entertain you, I have just amused myself writing this post, so I consider it a success.

Have a Happy Easter, eh?!
