i suppose i have a narrow mind about people with narrow minds. i guess i can’t help it. but basically, i don’t know how to talk to these people. because they seem to want to argue with me about everything and anything – right down to my personal preference in underwear colour.
i have family friends of my parents and some relatives who, whenever they see my parents, give them a present to pass on to chaeli.
my parents then tell me that i have to call so-and-so (and never wait more then 24 hrs) to thank them.
to be honest, i hate doing these calls. because i never asked for theses presents. it’s one thing if it’s around christmas or her birthday, in which i can sit down one afternoon and write out thank-you cards (of which normally never get mailed but hey… it’s the thought that counts, right?) but when it’s multiple times in a year from various people, that’s just a LOT of people to call.
and i’m not a phone-person as it stands.
so this most recent duty-call is for one of my aunts (whom i’m not close to). for the first time, i think i’m going to lie and say that i did call when my parents ask me the next time i see them.
if they find out it’s not true, i’ll either fake a, “really? but i’m sure i called” or a “hmm… i wonder who i was thanking, then?”
think either would work?
i use to have a crush on michael damian (from the young and the restless).
i honestly blocked this out of my mind but then i was at the gym, watching the music station and they did this feature on actors/models “moonlighting” as singers.
it was so bizarre. i’m working out, sweating away but every now and then i would look up and think to myself, “hey… isn’t that scarlett johansson? she sings? and why is ron howard in a jamie foxx video? wait… jamie foxx has a video? since when?”
anyway, they showed this early 80’s video and it was michael damian’s song. at first, i couldn’t put my finger on who it was that i was watching until it dawned on me that he was a soap opera actor.
i loved him on y&r and will forever be completely ashamed of this fact.
