It’s not all doom and gloom, though. Well, hardly anything is doom and gloom, it’s just a couple of those days that aren’t my favorite. But, I am excited that my friends have bought their airline tickets to Vegas yesterday and today. Those texts make me smile. I guess I should get on that! Just thinking about a trip, makes me happy. I wish it were this weekend, but having it several weeks away will help me fit into that fucking airline seat. See, looking on the bright side J
On my way home back from the appointment last night I heard an ’04 Alanis interview with Howard Stern. I heard it back and the day and remember thinking it was pure magic then. Oh, how I love her. Not in the same way I love Gwen Stefani-who is now single-one step closer to that marriage, but I love Alanis’ songwriting so much. Plus, she’s fantastic live. I saw her once on just an acoustic set, and I was worried I’d be bored to tears (back before I became refined…and could enjoy that stuff), and it was fantastic! I also saw her w/ a regular show and she was equally as good. The Barenaked Ladies opened for her, and they were the bomb. It was the last show of the tour and they came out during her last song, all wearing womens thong underwear with their junk hanging out. It was awesome. The interview was done at the time Everything had just come out and there was all of this hubbub about the word Asshole in the song. My God FCC…really…that’s our tax dollars at work? Anyway, she sang, “Assbowl” during the part, and I so loved it. I think it’s my new favorite word. Back in ’04 it probably was, too, but who can remember so far back? But anyway, I’ll add the video for you. This is one of my all-time favorite songs. Here’s hoping that you have the kind of love she sings about in this song. Oh, the song was written back when her and Ryan Reynolds were together, but in my head she’s still with him. You never want that kind of love to end.
