Hump Day / by Christina Osheim

What a whirlwind weekend! Although today is Wednesday, hump day. Bizarre. It feels like a Monday. But not last Monday. Last Monday was a Monday unlike a usual one. But then again, what is a "usual" one? So will life feel hum drum and prosaic going back to my old routine?

I need not worry. I can always find joy in the absurdity of the banal. I had to drop off work for an event GenR is having tomorrow. How that event will be for me I have no clue. But it is for a good cause and is getting my work and name out into the public. What game shall I devise to get through my awkwardness?

Anywhoo, driving back I saw Bernie strutting along Barracks Road. No, not Bernie Sanders. That would have been sweet though. Not Bernie, a genetic hybrid of Bert & Ernie, nor Bernie Mac, nor any of these well known and regarded Bernies: Famous People Named Bernie. I saw THE Bernie. You have to be a child of the 80's and 90's to intuit who I am thinking of.

 

 

Bernie Sanders on a normal day. Imagine what he's looking like now.

Bernie Mac. Man I miss him.

YES THAT IS RIGHT! WEEKEND AT BERNIE'S BERNIE!!!! HOW RAD IS THAT?!?!?!?!?!?!

Perhaps the Spirit Guide I found Monday at the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden has transferred his powers south to Charlottesville. If so Spirit Guide, I like the path you are leading me down!

Time to give Swirl Girl a spin, perhaps we have a Bernie or two to throw today!
