Aaah, that name always brings a smile to my face – and it’s not cause I’m a huge fan. There’s a story to this… back in the days when I was still married to my ex Billy Joel came to Boise, Idaho to do a little show. Him and our friends got really excited and bought tickets. Well since I was the wife they got me tickets too. I don’t go to concerts much and so it was exciting for me and even though I was not a huge fan I grew up listening to him so I was cool about going out to see him live. The day of the concert came. We all got there early. We weren’t far from the door I remember and did some random chit-chats. Somehow we got to talking about the concert and here was me in my little (too excited) voice saying more less: “Oh, my favorite song is Uptown Girl (and I did a little sing and dance move)”. Everybody stopped and looked at me. I did the left-right eye-balls move. I thought “What?” Then I saw a smile, then a big grin, and some laughs. I was still confused and started to feel that something was not right. I said, “What?” And somebody said something of this sort, “Uhm, Savitri, we’re not going to a Billy Joel concert. We’re going to a Billy Idol concert.” I think my jaw dropped. I was pretty embarressed. I wasn’t very quiet about loving Uptown Girl either. I wondered how many people heard. YIKES! I can’t remember what my ex did. I think he continued to laugh at me. URGH!!!!! I had a good time but I think I only one or two songs and none was Uptown Girl!!!
So I told my dear husband. He couldn’t believe it and like everybody else he laughed at me. He still does every time a Billy Joel/Idol song comes on. He’d go: “Want to see a Billy Joel concert?” or “Was that Billy Joel?” when he knew it was Billy Idol. URGH!!!!!
So that’s that.
Tonight I made a card. It’s thinking of you just because card. I’m doing another Moxie Fab challenge and came up with this:
Have you seen the movie Bedtime Stories with Adam Sandler? It’s M’s favorite now and I saw the above color combo in one of the hotel lobby scene: A splash of yellow on black and white. I really like this color combo, it’s bold but at the same time there’s some classic elegance to it.
So that’s it for tonight. I haven’t shared a crazy Savitri story in awhile. My husband sometimes wonder if I have a touch of blond underneath my hair (for sure now and then I got a touch of white hair! Funny thing is that my ex always wonder out loud about this blond thing too, maybe I do?). Now, this blond thing I don’t get either. I need to Google to see where the idea of dumb blonds came from. I know a lot of smart blonds. Laters!
