We’ve got to stand up, put our hands up and fight

Current mood: fascinated

There's a reason no one knows her name
If she don't tell you then she never has to change it
She's allergic to "I Love Yous"
and staying in one place for too long
If you blink she's gone
~ "Praying to the Wrong God" by Jon McLaughlin

My ear itches – and I don't have a Q-tip. Ugh, I hate that! Itchy ears are the worst – even worse than pickle juice in your eye (which Ellen claims is the "worst"). I am still waiting for a call from my insurance company – in hopes that they will tell me the verdict on my car.

Work is still very busy – but at least one huge project is off my plate. Well, it is still "on my plate" – but off my fork, I guess, as I have to wait until next week to know if it is successful! It had better be; considering all the work I have done. Fingers crossed!

I am feeling rather unfocused today which is why I am jumping from topic to topic with no seguing. Being unfocused is generally the result of feeling directionless. Lately, I have been eating, drinking, and living work and/or the Olympics – leaving no room for thoughts of the future. I have been playing the lottery with some work friends; so in a way, I am planning for the future – I just don't know what I will do with all the money once we win.

Has anyone not heard that song, "Money Honey"? I think that is my new theme song. "I've made mistakes that I can't erase. I've made mistakes. If I had more money, Honey, would you love me, love me, love me? If I wasn't just somebody like me?" I have a strong suspicion that more money would assist my social life as well.

Lately I have been listening to a new Playlist on my iPod. The last 10 songs I heard on shuffle were:

"Money Honey" by State of Shock.
"Why Does this Always Happen to Me?" by Weird Al
"Here" by Hellogoodbye
"Best I Ever Had" by Vertical horizon
"Our Love" by Rhett Miller
"The Waiting" by Tom Petty (and the Heartbreakers)
"Grandfather" by Stephen Lynch
"Galileo" by Indigo Girls
"This is Our Town" by We The Kings
"You'll Make It" by Faber Drive

Looking at this list makes one realize that my taste in music is extremely diverse/eclectic. No wonder people think I have ADD when they ride in my car. Oh, my poor little car. Damn! Its death will not be in vain! I will do my best to drive in a way that would have made it proud.

PERSONAL NOTE: While it's true you are not perfect, you truly are closer than most. Too bad you cannot work a printer without assistance. Baby steps!
