Warped humor.

3.31.2010

I’m wondering  about my girlfriends. As I write, playing on iTunes is Perfectly Lonely by John Mayer (a recent gift from a separated woman). Today I got an email photo collage of “divorce cakes” from an engaged friend (who has gone through a divorce and very much deserves the happiness she’s found) and later a joke email about a neglected, sad woman and her husband in therapy.  Like the music and the first email, the joke got me to smile.  Actually all three provided pretty good laughs.  I can count on girlfriends to generously dole out hugs and laughs.

The icing on the cake was in the mail today:  a photo of Joel and me at a Portland fundraiser last month. It was probably the best photo we’ve taken in years. That’s a good development director for you!

I’ve thought about standing at Union Station and screaming “THIS SUCKS” at the top of my lungs when a passing train would drown out my voice.  Figured it might spook the Whippets so I moved on.

I am good. You?

    This approach to “celebrating” life changing events and anniversaries seems to have been lost on Hallmark. I would say it could be a booming market opportunity for creative types — If half of American marriages end in divorce and each ex buys, receives or receives “observance/sympathy/just desserts” cards from friends then that pretty much could equal a card for nearly every adult American — even more for residents of the divorce capital of the heartland Oklahoma USA. Anyone got some ready cash and talent available for a start-up venture?

    Russell: What a sterling idea! Who could be our investors? I have only sweat equity to offer. By the way, a fellow in NYC shared a terrific site last night. You’d appreciate the humor.

Your photo’s are so…TRIX, Body Vox..holy crap incredible. I like the sticker that says if you think education is expensive, try ignorance.The link here of the cards is halarious. Thanks for sharing. I didn’t know there was a way to create a hidden group on FB…Gosh. As for screaming at the train station…the grass is always greener elsewhere…I wouldn’t mind taking your leash in exchange for …mostly likely some of the most satisfying, totally fantasmic se-…ooops..I want to cheat and take a bite of that pink cake. I’m trying to diet, I’ve lost 13 pounds. The cakes are cute. How do you find all this stuff and… I don’t think your a real person, maybe your a conglomerate, The Tracy Corporation….LOL
