Quickie: Wow Look At You Now

Standard

An ex flame from college sent me an email with the subject: “Wow Look At You Now.” Despite not really enjoying this person anymore, I was intrigued so I opened the email.

He put in the lyrics of Travis’ “Watch in the Window.” I’m 90% sure this wasn’t ever a “song” of ours, so I was still intrigued.

He followed up saying this song is so beautiful and he heard it this morning on the way to work and immediately thought of me.

Weird. This song is about happy couples and the mark they can leave on the world together (i.e. children). And he and I are not a happy couple. Nor making babes, anytime ever.

At any rate, the song is amazing and it’s on repeat today. But I’m a bit creeped out by the fact HE sent. So I picture running through a flower field to Mr. Fifth Floor who rode the elevator with me this morning.

Advertising that Kidnaps

Standard

I noticed this a bit ago on the train and must confess, I was deeply intrigued to go to the website. These ads say things like “He was last seen reading ads on the train” and look as if some weirdo sat over the poster and cut out all these letters from magazines. I’ve seen the sign numerous times and it continually peaks my interest, yet I’ve never made the final leap to find out its true meaning.

Thankfully, AdFreak got to the bottom of it. Apparently, it’s promoting weekend getaways from Chicago–>STL. They had a contest to see who could find the kidnapped man via Twitter, FourSquare and a microsite.

When I found this out, my heart sank a little. Was kind of hoping for something a bit more adventurous, and less creepy. I’m a huge fan of getaways to STL, but on my own terms.

Why couldn't I have been on the train this day?
