Highlights from my day

I went to a bridal shower today. (For Kristen, who is marrying Dennis... both of them are fun people from band/ABC group.)
It was up in Lapeer, Michigan, which is about a two-hour drive.
Morgian (awesome baritone/euphonium player from band and ABC group) and I rode there together. Thanks for letting me tag along, Morgian! :)
Morgian rocks. She really does.

Even if her truck doesn't have air conditioning, I like it anyway. It's one of those vehicles with plenty of "personality". Better yet, it matches HER personality. For example, twice during our journey today, the windshield wipers came on spontaneously. Just one flip UP, flop DOWN, then they were done. No reason.

I love weird bizarre spontaneous people who do silly fun things for no apparent reason. If that aptly describes you, we might make good friends. Send me a resume.

During the two hour drive (four hours, round trip) with no AC, we had the windows down, and basked in the roaring breeze while she drove between 70 and 78 on the highway. It was great.

After i got home, though, I realized something...
I am getting a sunburn on the arm that was next to the window. It's sore and pink. I can't find any aloe in the bathroom, but I've splashed some cold water on it. I think I have some Gold Bond Medicated Powder I can put on it too.

But still, I'm glad I went.

One more fun memory of today: Y'know the song Bohemian Rhapsody, by Queen? Ever seen the movie Wayne's World, where the two guys have a grand time thrashing away while they sing it? Well, on the way there, that song came on the radio. Morgian turned the volume way up, and we both sang the whole thing just like Wayne and Garth. We both seemed to know all the words, which further proves just how cool we are.

Or something like that. :)

A home remedy for sunburn. Put AQUA VELVA aftershave on it. It will take out the burn and not get sore. You might still peel but it won't hurt. It really works.

Now about my resume. I spontaneously shoved it up the last guy that interviewed me for a job's butt.

I can't find in myself to apply for the position as your friend. I have a tendency to put out easliy to get the good positions and that would probably get me into trouble.

However if you insist, I will write and ask for my resume back from that last feller that interviewed me.

Queen rocks.

Later Y'all.

Janna are you mistaken cool
for being a fossil? :)

Janna said...

Meloncutter: Yes, I would like you to retrieve your resume from its previous "hiding" place. Please be sure to boil it in bleach before sending it to me.
Or, y'know, you could just print out a fresh one...

Michele: Classic rock IS cool. You of all people should know that!

Morgiana Le Fey said...

Marilyn said...

Sounds like a good time to me.

michele said...

Janna you're right,i just
wanted a reason to use the
word fossil. I love Bohemian
Rhapsody,you can't help but
to sing along.:)

Desert Songbird said...

"Bohemian Rhapsody" will FOREVER be equated with that scene from "Wayne's World" in my mind. Cannot hear that song without being tempted to bob the head, you know?

Mr. Fabulous said...

If only there was video of that little impromptu concert...

Travis said...

I am one of those who did the whole head bang during Bohemian Rhapsody before it was bastardized by Wayne and Garth.

And thus, when I hear the song, I properly envision Freddie and Queen.

Morgen said...

Janna, since I'm 99.9% sure you DO NOT have any Aqua Velva in the house...
(snicker, Aqua Velva, who the hell still uses THAT?)
...I would recommend some vinegar.
It cuts the "bite" of a new sunburn.

Surely you have some vinegar around, right?
Too bad that gnarly ketchup is all gone... bet that was pretty vinegary...

Glad you & "the other one whose name is pronounced just like mine" had fun today. Still trying to wrap my head around you two at a bridal shower...

Lee said...

okay, i know i'm going to be the odd man out, but i have to voice my 2 cents:

i absolutely, positively, categorically, beyond a shadow of a doubt despise, hate, and otherwise loathe with every fiber of my being that god awful "bohemian rhapsody" (or just about any other song by queen for that matter).

I can't apply. I always have a reason. Even if I don't know what it is.

Turnbaby said...

I LOVE car dancing head banging singing at the top of your lungs going fast!!!

Fuckin A!!

Asara said...

The Mirth-Mobile rides again!

Party on, Janna :)

Janna said...

The108: It looks like I had an arm transplant!

Morgian: Yes, we mustn't forget the geese...

Marilyn: It was! :)

Michele: So you're a fossil too?

Desert Songbird: Exactly!

Mr. Fab: I made sure there were no cameras nearby.

Travis: Hey! Wayne and Garth did just fine!

Morgen: Vinegar sounds like it would hurt and sting a lot. Ouch!

Lee: Tsk, tsk, tsk....

Lynda: Good point. There IS always a reason somewhere.

Turnbaby: My point exactly. :)

Asara: Party on, Asara!
