99 Luftballons…

Last night, when I was getting off the T, there were two guys going through the turnstiles. Their heads were totally obscured by clusters of balloons in purple, blue and pink (about half a dozen each).

Where were they going? What were the balloons for? I’ll never know. But I’ve had a good time thinking of the possibilities.

Okay, so there were more like a dozen balloons, and none of them were red. But now, with any luck, you have that song stuck in your head and it will finally leave mine.

You are not the droid I was looking for…

Last night, I hit “play” on the remote control for my DVD player.  The DVD starting playing all right.

Also, my fan turned on.

Mind you, the fan has a remote control, which I think is dumb and lives in the little slot on the fan.  But still…I wasn’t talking to the fan, I was using the DVD remote.  Someone is certainly anxious to be useful.

I haven’t been able to reproduce the effect, but I will keep a close eye and report back.
