A trip down memory lane


You know those moments in your life when random funny episodes you had come flooding back at the most inappropriate times and you find yourself making that red faced suppressed laughter while you're standing in line at the grocery store?

Here's the memory I had that had me looking as red as the vine ripened tomatoes I was buying:

I was the star of my friend Danielle's senior film in college. We went to her borther's hipper than hip warehouse-come-loft in brooklyn to shoot most of the film over one weekend. Two kittens also lived there. Danielle and I slept a few feet apart from each other on makeshift beds. One morning I slowly woke up to a gurgly coughing sound that sounded dangerously close. The first thing that comes into view is a bobbing furry head of one of the kittens in the middle of trying to dislodge a hair ball on to MY FACE. Before I quite comprehend what is happening, I look over to see Danielle lying awake and calmly watching this feline farce without so much as a warning to me. This kitten had decided to climb up my sleeping body, perch on my chest with the sole purpose of vomitting on my head and my supposed friend didn't say a word.

I eventually removed the kitten to the floor where it threw up by my feet to the sounds of Danielle's laughter at what almost happened, no thanks to her.

Oh no! It all happened very fast... I swear, I didn't realize what was happening!!! That said, it is definitely one of those memories that causes random bursts of inappropriate laughter! Love you...

OMG. Holy crow. That gave me the same eek feeling I get when I think about how my best friend swung a baby up into the air; as he giggled, he drooled right into her open mouth.

UGH!

Boy, I didn't even know you two knew each other. Does everyone on the net know each other except for me? And you realize, Lauren, that I'm gonna bug Danielle for the rest of her life to put that senior film of hers online as a Qucktime movie -- just to check out your acting ability...

Lauren said...

It's not so much acting as being attacked by pidgeons and flashing a bit of breast...but the film is great.

Poulet Poulin! Where are you? I've been checkin' your site like a proper stalker and the GirlSpoke one! Did you get a job or something silly like that? I need you in my day! To all you GirlSpoke girls, I love reading your site. It's like a great book which never ends. Love it.

neil, ms. lauren is my muse. she has been inspiring much of my art for years and was the inspiration at the inception my blog.

and, perhaps if you are lucky and i can ever get my photo website up and running, that film (and her fabulous acting abilities) may be represented.
