    I was at the gym today, in the middle of doing kickbacks. I had chosen a playlist that had a lot of 'upbeat' music in it though it wasn't setup as a work out list. While concentrating on my kickbacks, I suddenly realized that the music that was playing was.
    "This is my song" by Petula Clark. Not a remix or dancemix, but the original. I started to laugh at the gym. I probably looked nutty for a moment.
    Just a passing thought.

    Has anything like that happened to you that struck you as funny at an inopportune moment?

    I was in class the other evening when my best friend, who it later turns out was quite inebriated, sent me a text message calling me "my wuffy puffy duffy lovey pants."

    Great laughter ensued.

    And so did my sharing of the text message with the class. Thank god I'm close with that professor.

    Well, I was laid off from my job last week. icon_cry.gif They always have someone from HR watch you pack up your personal effects (I guess they've lost one too many staplers in the process).

    In my case they sent the CFO of the company. He's a good-looking guy and he's standing there watching me gather my things. He asked if he can do anything to help. I started to laugh because I was thinking, "Well, you can start by taking off your shirt". I didn't say it, but I really wish I had.

    I am always coming across events that are incongruous. My playlist on my IPod is deliberately put on shuffle so that I can hear Nine Inch Nails beside Mozart, and Wayne Newton beside The Ramones.

    But something I saw a couple of years ago surprised even me. A middle-aged orthodox jewish man walking into the bathhouse that is across from the condo I live in. Very strange to see.

    Well, since it's musical guilty pleasures, then this one is it:

    Was rushing around getting my junk for the gym, couldn't find MY iPod, so I borrowed the wife's. Got all situated on the ellyptical and about 45 minutes into it, I perked up and sped up to: "It's Raining Men"! Must admit, it was a sneaker tapper...
