I really need to clean up my emails. There is so much junk swirling around in my cloud storage. Just junk. It should all be sifted through and deleted.
Unfortunately, I’m the one who needs to sift and delete it.
But it’s just sooooo boooooorrrrinnnngggggg. That little chore is forever being pushed to the bottom of my to-do list.
Maybe I can do it some night when I’m watching something mindless on TV.
Like last night. I could have done it last night!! (A missed opportunity.)
Mr. Al and I were watching the movie Maggie starring “Ahhnold” as a father of a soon-to-be-zombie daughter. While the movie was on, I spent my time emailing back and forth with a girlfriend. Mr. Al played with his iPad. And there’s my review of that downer-of-a-movie. Makes you want to run out and rent it, eh? I think it was one of those movies where the actors get more out of it than the viewers. They get to stretch their acting chops and all that.
I’m getting tired of “bleak future” movies. Bring on the Happy. Give to me, please, another Guardians of the Galaxy.
Last Thursday, Mr. Al and I want to see Steely Dan and Elvis Costello perform.
We got there early. There was lots of people watching to be had. Tell me, does this guy know?
It was an outdoor amphitheater with great sound. Really fun. Elvis was great. Steely Dan was great. Lots of jammin’ going on on the stage. Brilliant time. I’d never seen Elvis before. Saw Steely Dan once, back in the dark ages.
Last time I saw Steely Dan it was the late 70s. I was in high school and they opened for the Beach Boys. One of the first concerts I’d ever been to.
Back then, I really wanted to hear them perform Rikki Don’t Lose That Number. I was so excited about it. Couldn’t shut up about how excited I was to hear Steely Dan play Rikki Don’t Lose That Number, one of my favorite songs EVER!
And, sure enough, they played it.
Unfortunately, I was in an…ahem…altered state…and didn’t remember they had. (Ah youth!)
So, now, some 30+ years later, I, being all mature and grown up and all, finally have another chance to see Steely Dan perform Rikki Don’t Lose That Number.
They played all their old hits…
…except Rikki Don’t Lose That Number!
Is it just me, or does anybody else find this hysterically funny?
I leave you with a YouTube link to Rikki Don’t Lose That Number. It is somehow fitting, no?
Have a great week, peeps!! Oh! I had a blog interview…me talking about Champion of Entean. Got all these re-tweets and tweets. It was kinda cool. Almost like being famous.

Love the photo of you and Mr. Al!
