Today my blog is two years old. Ancient.
Thanks to all of you who have been there from the beginning and all of you who check regularly and encourage me and post. I'll send you a signed copy of the book when I get published. ;)
For Christmas, I am giving you all the Dashboard song "So Impossible." Since I'm technically savvy enough to post up the mp3, here are the lyrics:
So she says
"Everyone's going to the party,
won't you come if I come
with a friend for your friend?
I'd be so pleased to see you
out of the classroom wearing the smile that I'll bring you.
I was hoping to learn a few things like..
Do you do you like dishing the dirt
on the whole class or
talking the big smack or
playing the fool or
wearing all of the latest fashions
or bucking the new trends
wearing your old threads or
if you like coffee in the evening
These are a few things that I'd like to know
that I'd like to know"
So I say...
"I've been scheduled to work but I'll call in
and my friend isn't busy
he'd be happy to join me
and maybe my friend
and your friend
will hit it off or maybe we will?"
I'm dying to know
do you do you like dreaming of things
so impossible or only the practical
or ever the wild or waiting through all your bad bad days
just to end them with
someone you care about
and do you like making out
and long drives and brown eyes
and guys that just
don't quite fit in
yeah do you like them
So yes, I'll see you there.
Its track thirteen on the cd a friend gave me, right after the cello suites and right before that "I miss you" song. I try to forget it wasn't a gift.
Apparently, I like playing the fool and waiting through all the bad bad days.
