Sometimes I freak myself out with this thing! What I'm saying is that while most of my blog entries are benign and/and irrelevant, some have been weirdly prescient. I'm not kidding when I say that there are days when I feel like I'm writing my life out on this thing only to later live it.

You are a scientist, or maybe you are a detective, so you want empirical data or maybe evidence so okay, wonderful, I understand your skepticism and am happy to provide examples:

I wrote about being a cater-waiter at the City Bakery a week before I went to a wedding and was served, by cater-waiters, at the City Bakery. This is weird because the wedding was not originally supposed to be at the City Bakery; the location was changed at the last minute because of a more-than-unfortunate event. I believe in coincidence too, but still: WEIRD!

And some time ago I wrote this and, I'm not sure if it was coincidence or something more, HALF THE WISH LIST CAME TO PASS VERY SOON AFTERWARDS. Which is: DOUBLE WEIRD!

Which leads me to this: I must make more wishes. And more specifically, I must write them down here, For Your Eyes Only (Roger Moore's best Bond flick if you ask me).

So here goes Another Wish List

I want to have an extremely enjoyable and Amy Sedaris-inspired dinner party once I finally move into my new teeny-tiny apartment. I want to wear my favorite apron. The entire time.

I want to have ice-cream sundaes for dinner with Mom, Dad, and Max (our dog). It's what we used to do on hot summer nights when we were younger (only Max was Oscar, our Other Dog) and I think we should do it again. Because it's the little things, right?

I'm not trying to be greedy, but I would also like to put on a cute outfit and go out to dinner with you, whoever you may be. You can pick the place and I will love it or I'll pick the place and you will love it. In any case, it'll be delicious for sure and I won't feel awkward eating in front of you not even when food inevitably ends up in my hair or on my face because maybe you will think it's charming that food ends up in my hair and on my face. And you will let me know.

That's it! Since I am asking for so much I will also give what is my favorite song right now.
