Quiet Sunday

I woke up today at 11:30 after getting nine hours of sleep. Then I promptly went back to sleep til 12:30. Then 1:00. Then 2:00. Finally got up at 2:00 to discover a present in front of my door. It was grass.

Someone gave me a lawn! Thank you whoever you are! You're amazing!

For most of today I hung out with people. There was a late dinner at Casa Grande with adsartha, mythic, darkskywatcher, Travis, fynixsoul, and runthebear. It was tasty, filled with delicious burrito and margarita. I'm starting to like them with salt. It's like drinking a cactus.

After dinner I read an amazing play called Now Then Again. I'm honestly not sure what to say about it, but if you ever have a chance to see it, do it!. Then there was Buffy watching with vicalis and lex_of_green. It was a good day.

Music Meme

Done with Yahoo radio instead, but on my custom station.

Step 1: GO to your iTunes (or preferred music player) library and put it on random.
Step 2: Read the question aloud as you hit play.
Step 3: Record the song title as the answer the question
Step 4: Repeat until all questions are answered
Step 5: Laugh (and post it so I can laugh too!)

1. What do you think of me, iTunes?
Candle in the Wind - Elton John

2. Will I have a happy life?
The Waiting - Tom Petty
I can't agree with this. My life is happy now and I don't see that stopping. The happiest parts of my life have always been when I decided to make them happy.

3. What do my friends really think of me?
Fantasy Girl - .38 Special
I'm not sure if this means my friends think I'm wonderful, female, or a crush object. Or all of the above?

4. Do people secretly lust after me?
Another Part of Me - Lionel Hampton
It starts out classy then sounds like seventy's porn music. This is followed by some smooooothe sex. I mean sax. The song is hot.

5. What does [my significant other] think of me?
White Room - Cream
I can't belive I drew this.

At the party she was kindness in the hard crowd.
Consolation for the old wound now forgotten.
Yellow tigers crouched in jungles in her dark eyes.
She’s just dressing, goodbye windows, tired starlings.
I’ll sleep in this place with the lonely crowd;
Lie in the dark where the shadows run from themselves.
Just out of curiosity let's see how they do for two:
Provisionally Yours - Carol Douglas (performed by Sarah White)

I’m provisionally keepin’ all my inner feelings
Here on hold,
I’m provisionally hopin’ you’ll stop playin’ around..
Blowin’ hot and cold.

I’d give my heart.. if you took me seriously
………………… could depend on me,
But I’ll make it clear right here and now…
Don’t take me for a ride, cause I’m not that kind.

I’m provisionally at your feet..
Like a cat…waitin’ for the cream
I’m provisionally on my knees…
Tell me it’s no dream
Okay, that was creepy.

6. How can I make myself happy?
Stan - Eminem
I'm going to interpret as don't look to someone else for meaningness and happiness. It's a lot less confusing than anything else I can get from this.

7. What should I do with my life?
No More Words - Berlin
And the English major laughs his fucking ass off.

8. Why must life be so full of pain?
My Way - Limp Bizkit
Not sure how to read this. I'll go for another.
Legs - ZZ Top
Ah, desire. How Budhist.

9. How can I maximize my pleasure during sex?
It Never Entered My Mind - Miles Davis
I do tend to concentrate more on my partner than myself during sex. Given that sex is a shared activity this is not necessarily a good thing. We'll read this as make sure everyone is having a good time.

10. Will I ever have children?
Bad Habit - The Offspring
I think it's the band here, rather than the song, that's entertaining. God help us all.

11. Will I find a vocation that makes me happy?
Last Resort - Papa Roach
Anyone want to take a stab at reading this?

12. Can you give me some good advice?
Knowing You - John Pizzarelli
So most of you probably don't know this song. Or Pizzarelli. I didn't know him until Yahoo played him. He seems to be a Sinatra-like Singer but less invasive about it. A mellow version of Vic Fontaine, especially as presented in Deep Space Nine. I think the message from the song is get to know someone, feel comfortable with them, then fall in love.

13. How can I make others happier?
Rock-a-Bye Bookie - Will Bradley
By dancing?

14. Will I find true love?
Mony Mony - Billy Idol
"Shoot 'em down, turn around?" Her or me? Either way not good.

15. Why is everything so confusing?
Love Without End - Geogre Strait
It's not what the title suggests. Then it sounds like it's about love between parents and children. Then it turns out to be a religious song. God always loves us. And when you think about what a parent has to do to make sure the child grows up strong that makes sense.

16. Shall we live in dreams? Reality? Do we have to choose?
All the Small Things - Blink 182
Dreams are everywhere if you know how to look.

17. How close are my friends?
Stab My Back - The All American Rejects

18. How sexy am I?
Let Me Blow Your Mind - Eve
I do what I can.

19. How will I change the world?
Hello Lola - Eddie Condon

20. What do you think happiness is?
Who We Are - Hope Parlow
I like the idea, though I'm not sure if I can agree with the lyrics:

It doesn't really matter what u wear
Let the people stare
Cause we are who we are who we are who we are
They misunderstand. The clothes don't define me: I define the clothes. But indeed, "It's good to be alive."


I got three hours of sleep last night. I got twelve hours the night before and no hours the night before that. I knew Dairyland would fuck me up.

Previous 5:30 AM vampire post switched to private. In retrospect those aren't the sorts of things I want to be shouting publicly. If you want it e-mail and I'll consider case-by-case.

Revised Vampires

So after the requests I've decided the best decision is to edit my previous post to take out the parts that were bothering me, namely the parts where I was judging other people. Here it is. Please keep in mind I wrote this at 5:30 in the morning and my brain was fried from Dairyland sleep fucking.
