a. feeling a little homesick today, for both of my homes [LA and provo]. above photo was found on LAist and just reminded me so much of home. additionally, it seems like provo seriously hits its stride for the 4th of july -- no better time to be in town than now, and of course i'm not. and this naturally leads to every out-of-state friend pilgrimaging to provo for visits this time of year. how about you come visit during winter when i'm bored out of my mind instead?
b. here's a story for you. once upon a time i moved to colorado and spent my days alone at home. i've always loved morning TV so now i keep the today show / regis + kelly on while i go about my mornings. in denver, a lovely local talk show called everyday comes on after r+k so usually i end up watching it. there are three hosts on the show and i've gotten a little attached. b makes fun of me because i always talk about them like they are my friends.
so yesterday my mom flew in and we went to sweet tomatoes [souplantation for you californians] for lunch. when we were walking out i saw one of the hosts of the show, my favorite host in fact, walking IN THE DOOR! i just double-taked but kept walking. maybe i was feeling shy, maybe it's the LA part of me to just observe celebs [or pseudo-celebs] without wanting to bother them -- so i didn't say anything.
last night i tweeted at her and asked if she'd been in lone tree. and this morning she wrote me back and said:
@paperlyndsey yes! You should have stopped me to say hi!
ahhh. i SHOULD have said hello. b tells me it would have been great. i could have pitched her, i could have answered baby questions for the millionth time, i could have told her i love her show. but i didn't. lame. :(
c. today is july 1! that means it's officially BIRTHDAY MONTH [see here or here or here for past celebrations]. woot. this also means baby dub has made it close enough to his due date that he too will be forever included in birthday month. which was completely unplanned but is a welcome coincidence.
when i woke up this morning b said "happy first day of birthday month!" and i said "do i get a present today? because i should get a present every day of birthday month." he didn't really like that idea.
but he does keep asking me what i want for my birthday. and i can't really come up with anything. i also can't think of anything "fun" to do, since my usual m.o. is to DO something rather than GET something for our birthdays. it makes me sad. i told b i can't come up with anything good and he said, "well, we're gonna get a baby during birthday month. that's a pretty good present." i guess so. this has been a great summer [massages, pool time, eating out, movies, outings] but i still want to do something fun FOR birthday month.
d. i'm in a bad mood. i think i need the pool today.
