Lyrics are really hitting hard these days. Take these for example:

That’s why the best thing
I can give to you
Is for me to go
Leave you alone
You got growin up to do
- Joshua Radin

And when you left you kissed my lips
You told me you'd never ever forget these images, no

I never want to see you unhappy
I thought you'd want the same for me

Goodbye, my almost lover
Goodbye, my hopeless dream
I'm trying not to think about you
Can't you just let me be?
So long, my luckless romance
My back is turned on you
I should've known you'd bring me heartache
Almost lovers always do
- A Fine Frenzy

So glide away on soapy heels
And promise not to promise anymore
And if you come around again
Then I will take the chain from off the door
- Ingrid Michaelson

Cuz I am giving up on making passes
And I am giving up on half empty glasses
And I am giving up on greener grasses
I am giving up
- Ingrid Michaelson

Funny the way it is, if you think about it
One kid walks 10 miles to school, another's dropping out
Funny the way it is, not right or wrong
On a soldier's last breath, his baby's being born
Funny the way it is, not right or wrong
Somebody's broken heart become your favorite song
Funny the way it is, if you think about it
One kid walks 10 miles to school, another's dropping out

Standing on a bridge, watch the water passing underneath
It must have been much harder when there was no bridge, just water
Now the world is small, compared to how it used to be
With mountains and oceans and winters and rivers and stars


you know that i could use somebody
someone like you
and all you know
and how you speak
- Kings of Leon

Crap, I’m such a sap.

Now I’m going home to spend my Friday night cleaning and reading. Maybe turn up the tunes and see if I can find some new lyrics that don't don't pack quite a punch. Not sure where that falls on the “cool” scale, but it can’t be that high. Thumbs...up.

I’ve been keeping updates on my bb as I’m out and about. This works well because I usually forget my thoughts before I can get to a place to write them down. Here’s what I’ve got in the past 24 hours:

- I really do have hopes of being a minimalist and someone who wears sensible shoes…someday.

- I am often disappointed in myself when I find candy wrappers in my gym bag.

- The man that sat next to me on the bus was enormous yet had tiny hands. And was likely gay which is an unfortunate combo.

- Holy crap, I just fell in love with a guy at the gym….well, really the gym parking lot, but I am much more motivated to go to the gym now. He was gorgeous. I hope I get to talk tohim one day and don’t sound like a complete idiot.

- You know the expression “….just in case you get hit by a bus.” Well, I almost got hit by a bus this morning, walking in the crosswalk on my right of way…oh sweet irony. This really reinforces my point that jaywalking is often safer and should not be illegal.

- A woman on the bus this morning had fuchsia nails that looked really good and I momentarily thought I could pull that color off. I’m beginning to think maybe not.

Random thoughts and incidents from the past couple days:

- If I had a real career I would like to be an aesthetician or a dermatologist.

- For the first time in a very long time I feel good about being me.

- I rarely get obsessed with bands, musicians, cds, etc. But I cannot get enough of Kings of Leon. I think I have a serious problem.

- Best phone call today:
“Can you just validate for me that smoking pot in the middle of the day is just lame.”
“Yes, yes I can. And yes, yes it is.”
“Ok, thanks, I’m going back to the farm”

- At lunch today, I saw a man literally stopped and smelled the roses. That was weird.

- Went to the dentist this morning. Officially cavity-free for 26 years. And all I got was a lousy toothbrush and more floss.

- Mid-morning elevator ride:
I held the door open for a delivery guy who I deducted was of Eastern European decent and of squatty build. He was very enthusiastic and talked not to anyone in particular but just to people who happened to be standing around. You know, one of those guys that just goes through life like a bumble bee, happy and buzzing around. We both get on the elevator with another gentleman. I stand facing the door but I can see him out of the corner of my eye watching me. He start chatting (to himself), “Floor 27…Did I say floor 27? Yes, yes I did.” I continue to stare straight ahead. He then comments on my dress, telling me how nicely put together my outfit is. I thank him. He continues to compliment me which is very kind. We arrive at 27, he buzzes off and the door closes behind him. The other gentlemen says, “That’s a guy that goes through life happy.” To which I responded, “Lucky guy.” These days I’ll take compliments anywhere I can get them even if it is on an elevator ride

- Jumped rope in front of a mirror again today. Gross….again.

- There will be an answer, let it be.
