Burn Before Reading: A Carly Allen Story

Quote of the Day: 08.18.17

So, I know just yesterday I said I was going to attempt to center my quotes better, but I clearly didn't follow through with that. I just truly put off doing this quote until it was late and I had laundry to fold and I was sleepy. Maybe tomorrow?

(Listen, I know my clock only says like 10:11, but I am a grandma.)

The thing is, I don't even know why I was so tired today. Maybe it's because I haven't really been sleeping well. I keep having weird dreams, and that in itself is weird. I tend to not really have dreams that I can remember, but this week I've had a whole bunch. One dream was me just on a date with Alison Brie. Nothing monumental happened. We just had dinner and talked. It was just a really nice date and I remember waking up feeling very calm. This fake dream date with Alison Brie was the nicest date I've ever been on. None of the other dreams have been as calming. Most of them have been apocalyptic survival dreams, so let's hope that's not prophetic in any way.

Today's quote comes from a Brian Dales song. He's the lead singer of The Summer Set, he sings on his own now, blah blah blah. Even if you've never actually heard a song of his, if you've read this blog, you've seen his name before. Anyway, he had a show last night and because I am dedicated to actually sticking to my budget, I couldn't go. You hear that, Mom? I am sticking to that stupid budget.

In unrelated news, if anyone just wants to give me a bunch of money with no strings attached, let me know. If not, you can catch me at the library. I am now a member of multiple LA County libraries.

(Also, in case you're wondering, I did not celebrate the tenth anniversary of High School Musical 2 because it's not the best High School Musical. Those are the scientific facts. I fully intend to celebrate the anniversary of High School Musical 3.)
