Day two of Lei-gate

I got lei'd in the shower this morning. Or, I wore my lei in the shower this morning. Whatever. It felt really odd to have this thing around my neck while I was trying to get clean. Like, I didn't want the lei to get too wet so I was dancing around the shower, repositioning the lei so it hung over my chest, then over my back, then over my chest again, etc. But it quickly came apparent that there was nothing I could do to stop the lei from getting wet.

The lei was wet for the next thirty minutes or so. It really knows how to retain water. Other than my shower experience, though, keeping the lei around my neck hasn't proven to be very difficult. I've been to Starbucks for breakfast, a diner for lunch, and then I went to an afternoon movie (An Inconvenient Truth, which I'll talk more about later, but you should go see it if you haven't) and I keep waiting for someone to be like, "what's with the oink lei?" (actually, I wait for them to say "what's with the pink lei," but sometimes typos are freaking brilliant) and even though I've had many conversations with strangers, no one has asked the million dollar question.

I know, isn't he? I have this tinge of guilt when I look at that picture, because I shouldn't find a man with blood all over him attractive, should I? But it's stage blood, so I get over it quickly enough.

Erik said...

eclectic, it IS a pretty funny typo, as far as yypos go.

I wanna see An Inconvenient Truth so badly, and I havent had the time because of work and such. But I think a part of the reason is that it will scare the crap out of me, because I saw the trailer, and it scared the crap out of me.

So I don't know what my point is, except that things like global warming, which are real issues, really scare me, more than say, The Ring, which didn't scare me at all.

But I know its important to see. But oh man. How was it? Will I wanna cry and crawl into a hole afterwards and have the desire to kill myself? Because thats how much stuff like that scares me.

Ps. Typos rule. Back in the day when I was too lazy to type full words i'd use 'u' instead of 'you,' and unfortunately for me, the 'i' is right next to the 'u' on the keyboard, and more than once i'd be typing to someone and write something like, 'i suck' instead of 'u suck.'

Haha, how stupid. Oh the good ol' days. Of when I was stupid(er than I am now).

Komal, go see it, the movie isn't really scary. i mean, it is horrifying, but the scary part you know going in: WE ARE DESTROYING OUR PLANET AND IN FIFTY YEARS OR SO EARTH IS ONLY GOING TO BE HOSPITABLE BY COCKROACHES. That's pretty fucking scary. BUT, what the movie does well is NOT be all sensationalistic like I just was (for instance, there's no mention of cockroaches ruling the planet in the movie, though it's evident that that's the implication) and also it gives you ideas on how you can proactively change the future course of Where We're Headed With The Planet, i.e. it's not all Doom and Gloom. We can change. We can fix. We can heal.

So go see the movie. Get all of the info. And plant a tree and ride your bike more and tell people to do the same, etc.

Okay. Are you talking about Liev Schrieber or something, whatever his last name is? The one who's now dating the skinny Australian. The one who was in the Manchurian Candidate movie...

Beomvqyk,

you think i can't find you, eleanor, but i've got my ways...

YES, we were talking about the liev you thought we were talking about, the one who did all the things you said. i forget WHY we were talking about him. FWL had written about him on his blog and then i selfishly posted my comment about it on MY blog instead of his.

i'm an asshole!
