To State the Obvious…

17 Sep

Here they come…lessons in the obvious.

  • It’s Friday, it’s payday, and I’m thrilled. I usually refrain from getting too excited about Fridays, being that the it’s-already-back-to-Monday letdown is the worst, but whatever. It’s Friday! And I got paid!
  • Ben Affleck’s new movie (“The Town”) is just “Good Will Hunting” with a crime factor. Just saying. All they need is a cameo from Matt Damon and Robin Williams and you have GWH2: Robbing Banks.
  • Suppressing my desire for a dog isn’t working, not when I constantly gaze at the photo below of my imaginary T-shirted dog. Seriously, the cuteness is killing me.
  • The official first day of fall is September 22. Woo and hoo. (Although, quite honestly, the cool mornings and mild afternoons indicate that fall is already here, just without the leaves. I’ll keep that in mind when the leaves finally come and a week later, it’s winter. It’s autumn’s way of playing with my mind.) *

That’s all for now…obviously.

*A few words from John Mayer that came to mind regarding the autumn issue, from his song “Something’s Missing”:

When autumn comes, it doesnt ask.

It just walks in, where it left you last.

And you never know, when it starts

Until there’s fog inside the glass around your summer heart.



Sincerely, Taj

Dear World, I have stuff to say, so get cozy. Here, I've got cupcakes.
