And that is life.
I walked home from church today because I had stayed a couple more hours to hear my fabulous friend speak in her ward an hour after mine. It was a clear/rainy/cold/warm somewhat bi-polarish day as far as the weather is concerned. However, when I walked home, it decided to be sunny, with a lot of wind, but warm nevertheless. I loved it. Sure, it would have been made better without my pointy heels (it's like they have a limited 3-hour block guarantee...3 hours of semi-comfort and that's it. After that, it's all pain and suffrage as my feet start to complain). My purse and big bag were kind of hard to carry, because my fingers kept getting slightly numb and my elbow kept locking, but other than that it was a great walk. I reflected on a lot of things, both little musings and bigger issues. Isn't it interesting how weather affects moods? Is it just me? Because I could be having the worst rainy day and for some reason, if the sun decides to grace me with its presence, all the sudden my rainy mood is washed away (or at least diluted a bit) by the sunshine. However, if I'm already in a good mood, and it starts to rain, that amplifies it as well. I'll start to get all happy about the rain and celebrate by dancing or singing in it. I know that one of my best friends Tricia absolutely loves rainy days, no matter what. Her inner sunshine comes in the form of rain. Which is nice...because in that case, one of us will always be in a happy mood to cheer the other up.
Okay, so I've been meaning to make a blog for a while now. Congratulations....to me. Perfect, I start out with a quote from somebody who's...not me. First, some clarification and explanation of what very well could be frequently asked questions in the near future:
1. Why the kooky URL?
Well...it comes from a quote that I made up one time. I've always been proud of it, because it's just so darn profound. It goes like this:
"Randomness is the spark plug in the tranquil sea of Normality. Bzzzzzt!!!"
It's pretty much how I live the majority of my life. (I declare the quote copyrighted, so don't even try.)
2. Warm fuzzies?
Warm fuzzies is a term that my dear friend Jeff and I have used for some time. Warm fuzzies come in various forms, but my favorite are the kinds that come from something friends share that connect their hearts. Like inside jokes, giggling, compliments, and various forms of chocolate. Well...maybe not the chocolate.
3. Hand snug....what the heck....??
They are too cool for words. You'll just have to ask me in person. I refuse to let virtual communication take over real communication. (Hand Snuggleez are copyright Michael.)
4. Why a blog?
For one, my family can now keep in touch with me in yet another way! (subtle hint ;) -- and that's a sideways winking smilyface, Mom). And, a lot of artists and aspiring artists use blogs for their work, and a lot of cool people use blogs to document their thoughts because, well, they are that cool. I'll probably use this for both because I fear if I start two blogs, in addition to my new Gmail account and applications, my new MacBook, my faithful Facebook, my phone, my currently busted iPod and other new innovations, I'm gonna be so inundated with media that I may just spontaneously combust.
I'm a spontaneous person, but that's a little much.
As for the frequency of which I post...not a clue.
