Two Unrelated Things: NaBloPoMo and Clowns

Posted by Amy in General

FIRST NABLOPOMO

YEY!!! I did it. I officially posted an entry every day all month!!! I am actually kind of proud because I really did think I would mess up and forget a day. It nearly happened a couple times (on the weekend because I try to steer clear of blogging on the weekends unless I am bored or have something earthshattering to state) but I did it. I am so totally stoked. I am bummed about Janet though. Like me, she was doing GREAT! And then her blog exploded all over the internet this morning leaving little bloggy bits everywhere (if you find them please return them to her…she needs her bloggy bits back)…she did post an entry today…I saw it with my own eyes…I even commented on it. But now its in bits all over the cyberhighway. Poor Janet. I wish I knew enough about bloggy bits and guts and such so I could help her…but really I don’t.

AND NOW..CLOWNS

I wasn’t having the best of day this morning. There were several different factors…but most of them had to do with me having to deal with one particular (thinking of a word I could use that won’t get me fired) quirky customer. Anyway…I won’t go into that here for obvious reasons, but needless to say when my lunch rolled around I was greatly looking forward to it. I decided to go to Starbucks because well frankly why not?

Anyway I hop on the highway and take my starbucks exit and am sitting on the offramp waiting to turn onto the street when I glance up in my rearview mirror and see a white minivan full of CLOWNS. They were back there doing what clowns do. Waving at people and causing a clown scene. Now I have always been of the opinion that clowns are freaky…hiding their real emotion behind a goofy painted on expression. But it was so unreal to see them in the van behind me. When they passed me as I was getting into the lane to turn into my starbucks they had a personalize plate from out of state…it said Pippi (i remember this because I thought to myself Pippi Longstockings wasn’t a clown now was she? No I think she was just a girl with weird hair). It did strike me as odd that they were out of state clowns…in full makeup and outfits I didn’t catch the state the plate was from…you just don’t see that everyday.

    can’t sleep, clowns’ll eat me!

    Thanks for vouching for me, girlie! Hey…I thought of another book I could send you if it sounds like one you might like more than the Christopher Moore one; it’s called Strangers by Taichi Yamada…it’s a Japanese horror story (http://tinyurl.com/28ywph). Let me know so I can send it out tomorrow, k?

    I too, detest clowns. There was a clown mask in the store for Halloween and I made Howard put in a place where I couldn’t see it from my office! Congrats on completing NaBloPoMo!
