remembered songs.

Sunday, April 26, 2009

I woke up this morning with this song in my head. It stayed there all afternoon and it was driving me nuts and I wanted to know what it was. I had heard it only in Maggie's car and I didn't want to bug her so I kept guessing what it was through internet searches and some serious memory searching and it was like finding a needle in a haystack. So I called her and she instantly knew what it was and told me and I have been listening to it non stop for an hour now and I feel so satisfied, I sing to it and everything. Maggie has been my low fi shazam. But god isn't it so satisfying when you have a song in your head and you don't know what it is and when you find out what it is?

In other Ellen news I got a hair trim today and during the hair cut I let out some sighs (they weren't rude I swear) because I was just tired and honestly, it was kind of hard to talk to the hairdresser because she was ESL and she was only half listening and understanding me. She told me that I shouldn't be sighing because I am so young and I shouldn't be so tired and then later asked me if I go to a temple or have a religion. I said no and she said, well maybe you should so that my soul would be at peace. I said that my soul was already at peace.

I always kind of dread going to a hairdresser because I have to make conversation. Somehow thought it kind of always ends up being a funny conversation (at least to me), one time this 17 year old high school girl was cutting my hair and we were just talking about the ins and outs of what it's like to be a hairdresser. And I asked her if people come in with greasy hair, and she's like yeah, and I honestly don't know what compelled me to say this, maybe it was because I felt like she was being pretty open and genuine with me (ha), but I said, "Do you secretly judge them?" and it was insanely awkward after that and she kind of let out this weird laugh and looked at her middle-aged coworker and was like, "Uh did you hear that?"
