Good God, how did it get so late?

Well, I suppose any attempts of getting to bed slightly early so I can get up to do aerobics before I go to work at noon is impossible now. I’m really glad I’m getting back into this exercising thing. I’ve always liked to dance, so aerobics seems to be working for me. We shall see…

Penny’s snoring on my bed…she had a long day. Running like a crazy dog down to the pasture and promptly losing the pig rib my mother brought her from Ohio. I looked everywhere for it, but it was gone. Oh, well. She’s got another ear and a snout left, but the snout is kind of creepy. Then she made a beagle friend with some little dog who wandered up to our house. We tried to figure out who he was, but Penny ran him off into the woods before I could check for tags.

Listened to ‘before these crowded streets’ today on my way to Keene for the dentist. I forgot what a powerful, beautiful album it was. I lose sight of a lot of things like that. Get wrapped up in the crap of the day. I actually stopped and let a few cars out of a side street today, something, I’m ashamed to say, I really never do. Just say screw the bastards and drive by, leaving them in the endless mess that is rushhour traffic in Keene. I let three go and then the fourth kind of careened in front of me. I guess he thought I was going to honk or flip him off (a normal occurance for me), but I just smiled and waved, recieving a relieved smile and thank you in return. So much easier than losing my temper and letting one little car ruin my mood.

So, anyway, kiddos, I don’t have much to say. I’ve been kind of in a contemplative sort of mood, thanks to good ol’ Oprah. Yeah, yeah, I know. I’m part of what my brother calls the ‘Oprah Cult’. But sometimes watching her show, for me, is the equivilant to taking a nice warm bath. Sometimes I wish she’d address the problems of the younger generation of women (i.e. us Gen X-ers or Y-ers or whatever the hell I am), but I guess if you’ve got a demographic, you’ve got a demographic.

Poked around ebay today, thanks to Liz’s inspirational fez. Bid on an old VW ad and some Luray dinnerware, yay. Not a big spender, but I like finding deals, and the VW ad was so cute.

Thought I’d leave you with some Dave lyrics, something that really touched my heart today:


The Stone

I’ve this creeping

Suspicion that things are not

as they seem

Reassure me

Why do I feel as if I’m in too deep

I’ve been praying

For some way to show them

I’m not what they see

Yes I have done wrong

But what I did I thought

needed be done

I swear

Unholy day

If I leave now I might get away

This weighs on me

As heavy as stone and as blue as I go

I was just wondering if

you’d come along

To hold up my head when my head

won’t hold on

I’ll do the same if the same’s

what you want

If not I’ll go

I will go alone

I’m a long way

From that fool’s mistake and

now forever pay

No, run

I will run and I’ll be ok

I was just wondering if

you’d come along

To hold up my head when my head

won’t hold on

I’ll do the same if the same’s

what you want

If not I’ll go

I will go alone

I need so

To stay in your arms, see you smile, hold you close

And it weighs on me

As heavy as stone and

a bone chilling cold

I was just wondering if

you’d come along

Tell me you will…


Good nite, lovies.
