Random Musings Friday…

Happy Friday.  This was an awfully long week, considering it was only 4 days…actually, it’s probably because it was only 4 days.  I have a little surprise for you, but first…my random musings…

  • Last night when I was walking through the subway station I encountered a roach.  Not unusual in the subway…there are rats there too.  But this was easily the biggest roach I’ve ever seen in my life and the freaking thing was just booking through the station.  People were literally getting out of its way.  Of course, the sucker was heading right for me.  I had to jump out of its path to make sure it didn’t crawl on my foot.  It was so nasty and made me so happy that I don’t live in the city. 
  • When the deli screws up my order and doesn’t send me everything I call and make them fix it.  However, the other day when I ordered one frozen yogurt and they sent two I didn’t say anything.  I’m pretty sure that’s morally wrong.  I’ll probably go to hell now.
  • Sometimes when I watch movies I get these crazy ideas.  Like when I watched Precious I decided I was going to give up my career and become a teacher in an inner city school so I could make a difference.  Last night when I watched The Blind Side I wanted to open my home to a troubled kid.  Elizabethtown made me want to take a road trip (see yesterday’s post for more details).  After watching Sex and the City 2 I decided I wanted to go to Abu Dhabi on vacation with my mom, sister-in-law and SIL’s aunt.  I even went online and did research.  I know – I’m totally nuts.
  • By the way, if you haven’t seen The Blind Side you totally should.  It was great.   

Now for your surprise and the best part of my whole week…guess who’s back in NYC???  That’s right ladies…Mr. Bloom has returned.  He was apparently in NYC for some sort of dyslexia awareness event…at least that’s what people magazine said.  Here’s a picture of him at the event on Wednesday…

As my co-worker read this information to me, I looked out the window and what did I see???  That’s right…Orlando Bloom, right there on the balcony!  Of course, by the time I grabbed my camera, he’d turned around and a minute later he went inside.  However, I did manage to get one shot of him…

I realize it’s of the back of his head and that it could be anyone…but, trust me, it was him.  He’s even wearing the same shirt!  I think he’s a little shy to turn around and look our way because he knows we stalk him.  J thinks we should write him a message on the windows in lipstick.  We haven’t done it yet, but we are considering it.  Something like…Hi or We love you Orlando… or Take your shirt off.  If we do decide to move forward with that plan, I’ll take some video.  And if I see him again today I will definitely get a better pic for you ladies. 

I have to get back to my stalker post at the window now…have a great weekend everyone.


  1. Yay! He’s back! Good job on the photo opp – glad to see you’re completely on top of things. Now STOP reading your emails and focus your attention back on the patio! We need more pictures. Or perhaps a wave.

  2. Yay you caught him! I was wondering about that!

    And that roach story? YUCK EW YUCK! Gross!

  3. You should definitely put in for some night shifts! OMG, just imagining the pics you could get…awesome.

    I love when films inspire us. I’ll do that too, dream about changing the world…if only I could manage it in 98 movie minutes-that’d be perfect :)

  4. OMG. i vote for the “take your shirt off” message. i mean, he would have to comply. it’s written in lipstick. that means business.

    as for the blind side…i have seen the first half twice, while getting my nails done. but both times, my nails were done before the movie. i have to get on that…

  5. MAKE SURE YOU FLASH HIM next time he is outside. I think this is a key move on your part and then the ball is in his court, you know?

  6. I think lipstick on the window is an excellent idea! And, may I just say, that I’m super jealous that you have an occasional view of the fine Orlando Bloom? All I’ve got is the crotch of the window washing guy as he slams himself into my office window.

  7. YAY!!! I see you have been studying my blog on tips for stealth photography. :) Kidding obvs, but I’m so glad you got a pic this time!

    I vote for “Take your shirt off!”

    Jeez your view is so much better than mine.

    I hope you have a lovely weekend! And PS. yes. Blind Side = BEST MOVIE EVAR!

  8. i can put up with a lot of critters, but roaches are not one of them. i once went to close a curtain and, for whatever reason, looked up and a huge roach was just hanging out on the curtain about a foot from my head. i screamed so loud. seriously, it was traumatic.

  9. I love your posts, Shana! You are so funny. I too vote for “Take your shirt off!” He’d have to get a kick out of it 😉

  10. posterboard, posterboard posterboard party! Make big signs!

    Roaches kill me… I hate those nasty suckers!

    Blind Side was amazing!!!!
