Why Georgia

I am driving up 85 in the
Kind of morning that lasts all afternoon
just stuck inside the gloom
4 more exits to my apartment but
I am tempted to keep the car in drive
And leave it all behind

Cause I wonder sometimes
About the outcome
Of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why Georgia, why?

I rent a room and I fill the spaces with
Wood in places to make it feel like home
But all I feel's alone
It might be a quarter life crisis
Or just the stirring in my soul

Either way I wonder sometimes
About the outcome
Of a still verdictless life

Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Am I living it right?
Why Georgia, why?

So what, so I've got a smile on
But it's hiding the quiet superstitions in my head
Don't believe me
When I say I've got it down

Everybody is just a stranger but
That's the danger in going my own way
I guess it's the price I have to pay
Still 'everything happens for a reason'
Is no reason not to ask myself

Sick Cycle Carousel

If shame had a face I think it would kind of look like mine
If it had a home would it be my eyes would you believe me
if I said I am tired of this now here we go now one more time

I tried to climb your steps I tried to chase you down
I tried to see how low I could get down to the ground
I tried to earn my way I tried to change this mind
you better believe I tried to beat this
when will this end it goes on and on over and over and over again
keep spinning around I know it won't stop till I step down from this for good
I never thought I'd end up here I never thought I'd be standing
where I am I guess I kind of thought it would be easier than this
I guess I was wrong now one more time
this is a sick cycle carousel this is a sick cycle, yeah

Want a Lemon Diet Coke with that bucket of popcorn?

I don't usually look forward to very many movies but since I read the book and really enjoyed it I was eagerly awaiting The DaVinci Code. I was a little disappointed to hear that a lawsuit might delay the release. I really hope that doesn't happen.

My whole feeling on the matter is this: Every theory, book, song, poem, dream, idea stems from something we've seen, heard, smelled or felt and all of those things are part of people...through senses, emotions, our very being. Someone saying that part of "my" work sparked the idea for this or that and was the basis for your book altogether is a bit off the mark (In all fairness, I haven't read the other book.) but we all know that every paper we've ever written for every class we've ever taken in school had a bibliography. Heck, I put slices of lemon in my Diet Coke for years before they sold Lemon Diet Coke, does that mean I should sue the Coke Company?

Anyhow, that's my rant for the evening ;)

Birthday Shout Out

I just wanted to take a few moments to wish some very special people Happy Birthday. March, June and November seem to be the busiest birthday months. Almost all my friends and family have a birthday in one of those three months (although there are a scattered few here and there throughout the year).

Happy Birthday Jenn (technically not March but close enough ;) ), Marc, Monette, Phil, Isabel, Juanita and last but certenainly not least my Mom.

I wish you all an abundance of love, joy and cake! Wish we could have one huge party. No, not an orgy Marc, get your head out of the gutter :P
