Can’t stop won’t stop

…..listening to and, against my better judgment sometimes, liking Bruno Mars’ stuff. I mean there are the obvious good songs of his – Just The Way You Are and Marry You, for one two. But Grenade’s a little crazy. And so is this one.

But dammit if it doesn’t have a good melody.

Tangent: When I used to work as a server, the restaurant I worked for offered a vegetable medley as a side item. However, most people asked for it by calling it a “vegetable melody.” ‘Cause, you know, that’s the same thing, right? So whenever someone at one of his tables said it, my friend Mike would sing the ingredients to them. On account of the melody.

Anyways, another thing this song has against it is that it will be used in the next Twilight movie, which makes me about as excited as I am before I have to go to the dentist.

Can’t argue that the sucker’s catchy though. And totally speaks to the whole demographic of Twilight fans in that if you’re broken up with, life will suck. FOREVER. Quite melodramatic.

Poor Bruno, he can’t seem to catch a break. And apparently, when the dude falls in love, he falls hard. Or drags a piano.

Really good at not keeping up

Yeah. So about that running thing.

I’m probably gonna need to start over. I suck at a) running; b) motivation; c) life, apparently.

Just kidding about that last one, but I do feel awfully shitty for stopping. And then not starting again.

I don’t know what my problem is. I was doing so well there for a while. I had the time, I had the gear, and then there was a few weeks days of rain, some air quality advisories, some days where I couldn’t breathe outside and then I had other shit to do.

I feel bad. And like a quitter. And I’m gonna get back to it. I promise. I didn’t drop a good amount of dollas for some shoes I’m never gonna use.

Just when you thought we were done with EXTREME weather…

Dear Mother Nature,

Are you mad at us? Did we do something to upset you? I know we have this going for us, but at least we’re not the absolute worst.

Or is it something else? It has to be something pretty bad to deserve three pretty horrible bouts of EXTREMECRAZYANNOYINGHORRIBLERANDOM weather freak-outs in the past two years.

First, the wind storm. Really? A hurricane in Kentucky? How does that happen? Then, the ice storm. It came out of nowhere. Now – a freaking FLOOD.

At least give us some warning. Yeah we knew the wind was blowing. Yeah we knew it was snowing. Yeah we knew it was supposed to rain. But holy crap. I need time! I need to get flashlights, perishables, coffee so my dad doesn’t get pissed that I don’t have it if my family has to camp out at my one-bedroom apartment for a few days ever again – which reminds me, I need an air mattress and maybe another couch or a futon. Oh, and a freaking umbrella. I had an umbrella that broke like, a month ago, and haven’t bought another one. Smart, huh? I have cute Target rain boots, so that’s cool…

If there’s a storm I need to be prepared for guests, for not leaving the house, for having to read or survive by candlelight when the power goes out or when I’m hiding in my closet because that wind is SO FREAKING LOUD!

I’ve known forever that Kentucky weather changes by the minute, but now I’m nervous. I mean, we had an EARTHQUAKE last year. What’s next? Volcano? At this point I wouldn’t be surprised.

Anyway, for the next year – or SEVERAL – can we please get a break from it seeming like it’s THE END OF THE WORLD?

Oh, and thanks for the beaches. And Jamaica.

Sincerely,
Laura
