5/25/09 12:37 pm - I'm in Love with a German Film Star

I'm in love with a German film star
I once saw in a bar
Sitting in a corner in imperfect clothes
Trying not to pose
For the cameras and the girls
It's a glamorous world

I'm in love with a German film star
I once saw in a movie
Playing the part of a real troublemaker
But I didn't care
It really moved me, it really moved me

I saw it written and I saw it say
Pink moon is on its way
And none of you stand so tall
Pink moon gonna get you all
Its a pink moon
Its a pink, pink, pink, pink, pink moon.

9/24/08 08:36 am - Pale September

Pale september, I wore the time like a dress that year
The autumn days swung soft around me, like cotton on my skin
But as the embers of the summer lost their breath and disappeared
My heart went cold and only hollow rhythms resounded from within
But then he rose, brilliant as the moon in full
And sank in the burrows of my keep

And all my armour falling down, in a pile at my feet
And my winter giving way to warm, as I’m singing him to sleep

He goes along just as a water lily
Gentle on the surface of his thoughts his body floats
Unweighted down by passion or intensity
Yet unaware of the depth upon which he coasts
And he finds a home in me
For what misfortune sows, he knows my touch will reap

And all my armour falling down, in a pile at my feet
And my winter giving way to warm, as I’m singing him to sleep
All my armour falling down, in a pile at my feet
And my winter giving way to warm, as I’m singing him to sleep

I've messed up my shoulder and it's preventing me from knitting. How irritating.

I feel like the world is a little madder than absolutely necessary today:

So I just found out tonight that my mom went into the hospital last night with asthma attack. She's going to be in a few more days too until they can get her pulse-ox readings up. Thanks for the heads-up, family.

I got the fear the other day from watching a damn trailer for a movie coming out quite soon and
a)remembered why I don't watch horror films anymore
b)am no longer happy when I'm alone in the house &
c)dream fucked-up things.

I am crazy moody this week. I've got a ridiculous tight budget in place because I want money saved up for travelling and then we went and blew a tire. What's that about?

5/14/08 04:57 pm - Some ain't need drugs in order to have strange cares

Ian has a split-shift today so I took the truck back to my dad's house and Granddaddy was having a particularly good day and I hung out to chat for a while, which was nice. Ian came to get me at lunch and we paid the dentist. I've gotta look into an eye exam, preferably before we leave for holiday next month.

My irises finally bloomed, but are pretty hail-battered.

*sigh* I should probably go clean.

Bowling GreenCollapse )

This was one of those rare trips where everyone I saw was doing BETTER than the last time I saw them, so that's excellent and made for a great trip.

We didn't really get enough sleep last night, but maybe I'll try to take a nap shortly. I went out and bought a Japanese painted fern and a Amethyst Myst heuchera from Ace. Then I took an actual look around the garden and it appears that we were pelted by hail while I was gone. Nasturtiums, roses, basil & especially begonias were absolutely shredded. I think I'll lose a few small transplants, but hopefully not all the things that were damaged. I hate that shit.

Another exciting development during our abscence: http://www.365tomorrows.com/05/11/retirement/
Ian had another story published. He's gotten good feedback from this and I'm hoping he gets some more stories out soon. He's written some really great pieces in the last few weeks.

Today I planted Tradescantia "Purple Queen", Autumn brilliance fern & Rosina sweet violet. I fucking hate bugs.

We're off to BG at the weekend for Susie's graduation. I'm both looking forward to the trip and a little bit afraid of how expensive it will be. We were trying to hold off on spending too much cash before taking off for Ellen's wedding next month.

I did a gauge for Ian's sweater last night. I'm kinda restless and I need to take on several other projects first, but I think I'm gonna start his sweater anyway. I need some sort of row counter bracelet before I get going. I probably have the beads for that project somewhere.

Anyway, now for a load of photos:

Albert Hoffman has died. I know it wasn't the intended purpose but his invention aided some interesting times back in the day. Rock on, old scientist.

I had some pretty bad attitudes yesterday. I was absolutely wiped by the time we got to bed. I think maybe I'll try out a nap later and see if that helps. I'm still not managing to get as much done as I would like to.

I'm probably gonna stop in at Dearness today and get Mariah a tomato start. Then I need to get some more iron.
