Yellow button is. . . going, going, GONE! (As Jack Johnson would say.)
I'm gonna take the weekend off (to put up Christmas and feed my family and clean my bathrooms and slip into a coma) but I'll be back Monday to announce winners and give prizes and praises. I even have a little MUCHOS MAHALO Giveaway planned.
But for now I just wanna say . . .
Wait, what did I wanna say again?
Lost my train . . . Oh wells.
Oh yea, so you know how the universe is always sending me signs? Like in the form of butterflies or rainbows or Jack Johnson wrapping his arms around me at soccer games?
(You didn't think I'd let this race pass without throwing this photo in your face one. more. time. did you? Just in case the judges are watching I want them to think I run with the hip crowd.)
BTW, judges, if you're watching, I saw Obama too. Coming out of the bathroom at Turtle Bay, back when he was still pop-U-lar. My camera was on self timer at the moment so it wasn't the BEST shot, but still, I knew him when.
And here I am chasing Jim Halpert from The Office.
Where was I again?
Keep losing my train . . .
Oh, yea, so I think the Universe might be trying to send me signs about this contest. Or at least sending me winks. Not sure which, but last week I went out for Chinese and my fortune cookie read:
"You will soon be awarded a great honor."
My son thinks I'm getting a new church calling, but what's greater and more honorable than YW Prez? Fer reals!
Then today, after the contest was complete, I clicked on the finalist page to see how I ended up. My picture was at the very top of the page, in front of everyone. I wasn't leading in votes, I was leading in proximity. I'm not there anymore, but for a split second I was at the tipy top. And I think I heard the other contestants chanting "You're number 1! Cuz number 2 won't do."
Then I went grocery shopping and one thing I like to do to communicate with the Universe is flip through the radio stations in the car. It's like our thing. Me and the Universe. So I turned on the radio and blurted out, "First song I hear is a message from you!"
It was Radio Head singing, I'm a Creep. I'm a weirdo. I wish I was special.
I kid not.
Sometimes the radio thing doesn't work right away, but if you keep flipping you'll usually get the message you want to hear. Like I eventually came across Madonna singing ,"Celebrate!"
That's pretty straight forward, don't you think?
Have a great weekend everyone! (And please keep that weirdo song thing on the down-low. k.)
