play me


Play the song above. (please!)

I sit here at 6:00 P.M., listening to iTunes and suddenly B.o.B's "Created a Monster" comes on.

The mildly attractive attractive 20-something boy in a white t-shirt and jeans walking toward me turns into a Calvin Kline model
with some kind of strut.

The sunlight tree morphs into a lime green example of life's optimism.

The girl putting her sunglasses on her head turns into a fashion model, fan (wind) included.

My boyfriend looks stronger. (score)

Oh the powers of music. I wonder what it is about the mix of a good beat, a strong guitar chord and a dynamic voice that causes us to
feel so empowered. What would life be without the invention of music?

Count me out.

Pull Yourself.


There are many ironies in this world. Some countries being flooded by tsunamis, while some haven't seen water in months. Neighbors who will bring out a shotgun if your dog uses the restroom in their yard, but thinks all of your lawns are his yappy dog's own personal toilet. Perhaps the most obvious irony to me involves the law enforcement system.

Police. You are not fooling me. Although you are in the left lane, you do not have your lights on, and I know you are speeding...for fun. 

I have seen this probably thirty times in my life. A police car casually going 80 to 90 mph in the left lane. What? Is breakfast almost done at Chic-Fil-A? Are you about to miss your movie? 

Come on police. There may be some of us that you have arrested for public drunkeness, streaking, stealing in front of a camera...but the rest of us, were not stupid.
