Playlist For Sunday, September 17, 2017: I need a couple of Agravains

Nice thing about long distance biking...takes 3 or 4 hours (or 3 or 4 weeks) to do, and while you're out there: a.) you get to avoid actually doing anything else, like DEAL with Life, and b.) the prodigious amount of oxygen you suck up inspires the craziest plans. That you can't ACT ON! Because you're biking to fricking Phoenicia. Wow, I love it. Gargantuan plans, with the possibility of absolutely no follow up. Perfect. Cuz I'm an Idea Person. My staff does the actual dirty work (dirty dishes, oil changes, picture hanging, TAXES!) (Unfortunately not blog writing, that'd be overtime. I draw the line). That's me.

So the following "playlist" (note quotes) was dreamt up on a bike. Blame the chemical imbalance in my wind-blown brain (the helmet has holes, ya know). Once Upon A Timey Stuff. Ever Afters. Broadway ogres, stepsisters, wolves, and Queen Agravain (that last won sounds the a migraine med that makes you Grumpy). And then once "...happily ever after" flashes on the "screen", we dive into contemporary stuff, like Evan and Lin and Jenna at the bakery. AND cheesiest theme yet: What? As in So What? As in So What Else/What Kind/ What Do/What Are...Whatever!

So you can point, laugh, and blame the O2. But really, how far can you topple, how bad can it be? It's Broadway. It catches you. In a very sparkly net. :)
