Welcome back!! 💙
What an interesting weekend it’s been! For starters, I have been revisiting an album I seem to always come back to. It’s like a grilled cheese sandwich with soup in winter, or strawberries with whipped cream in summer. Basically, it’s comforting!
I spotted The Goo Goo Dolls playing live on Kelly & Ryan the other morning, and I was reminded of the happy memory of seeing them live back in 2011! It also inspired me to check out their other albums for a fresh listen.
Dizzy Up the Girl (1998) is definitely my favorite album of theirs. I’ve been playing it on loop and I honestly love every song. Plus, there’s a heavy nostalgia factor, growing up as a 90’s kid and hearing these songs on the radio… 💙
…OR MAYBE I’VE BEEN PLAYING IT ALSO BECAUSE US CALIFORNIANS HAVE BEEN FEELING DIZZY LATELY (I’M LOOKING RIGHT AT YOU, TECTONIC PLATES)…
Now, I didn’t feel the Fourth of July earthquake (although many people where I live did). The second one though – the even bigger one the next evening – I definitely felt and I freaked out a bit…
I was just sitting at the dining room table and noticed I felt slightly dizzy, like someone was moving my chair up and down. I shot out of the chair at lightning speed, went down the hall, and noticed the bookshelf was making a creaking sound and the stand-up fans were rocking around. And it just kept going!!!
It turned out to be almost a minute long. Anyhow, it was felt here noticeably, and I’m in Central California, around 200 miles from the epicenter in Southern California! I can’t imagine what it was like for the Ridgecrest residents!!! 💔
On a cheerier note, here’s a pretty blue outfit I wore! I love outfits that have different hues of the same color. I added hot pink for the accessories.
Here’s to different hues of blue, albums that comfort us, and hoping that the tectonic plates chill out for awhile. All this talk of fault lines and the impending Big One has me feeling just a tad freaked out.
But!!! What can you do, really? Just gotta roll with it…or roll with the plates, in this case.
See ya! 💙
