The guy on TV was zipping along in his Caddy. "Life is high school, with money," he said. Now that got my attention.
Yes, in a way he's right. But that isn't going to make me want a Cadillac today. A big wad of money back in the '70s would have made for great fun. But today? Hey, I'm trying to de-accumulate by cleaning out years of clutter stacked along our basement walls. The thrill just isn't the same.
If I'd had the loot back in high school, here's how I would have spent it (below). Even if it took every last dime. A Lake Lotawana friend had a Karmann Ghia just like this one. I drove it. And for some reason, it made me feel like Grace Slick.
Yes, it is good that Daniel Day-Lewis won a couple minutes ago, but overall we are flabbergasted at some of these decisions. Who the heck votes on these awards, anyway? Oh, and the show's format was lame, too. Couldn't they have come up with something more creative for this "news" program? Thank goodness American Gladiators is coming on ... but is it a rerun?
"Friends are all souls that we’ve known in other lives. We’re drawn to each other. That’s how I feel about friends. Even if I’ve only known them for a day, it doesn’t matter. I’m not going to wait till I’ve known them two years, because anyway we have met somewhere before, you know." George Harrison
