Surreal Moment Of The Week
I met a girlfriend for lunch this week. We got together at a new shopping plaza, which is an "outdoor mall" complex. It's pretty cool. It's set up like a charming little town, with huge pots of flowers on every corner, and bricked walkways for pedestrians. As I was heading to the restaurant, I realized that super loud music was being piped into the plaza. Which was sort of weird for an outdoor space. But the even weirder thing was....they were playing Xanadu by Olivia Newton John! Haaaa haaaa! At an astronomically loud volume. Piped in all over town! It was one of those super strange, surreal moments. I actually stopped on the sidewalk, paused for a moment, said (out loud to no one in particular) "Holy shit. This is Xanadu! I'm having a 1980's flashback!" And then I continued on my way.
Anyhow, needless to say, I am now having a 1980's inspired musical week. They just don't make 'em like this anymore. (Thank God).
Here, for your viewing pleasure, is the wackiest wack ever.....Xanadu!
All My Best,
