Sometimes I have many random thoughts running thru my brain. Separately, they don't amount to much. But together, well, they still don't amount to much. Anyway, this is one of those times...
Big thanks to K for alerting me that Darla Jaye was talking about the Reaching Adulthood Is Taking Longer article on her show yesterday afternoon. I had no idea Darla read my blog. Hey, Darla :-P
I am soooo sick of hearing that song, The Reason. They play it ALL the freakin' time around here. The guy singing sounds like he's dying, for crying out loud. They should use it to interrogate prisoners, that's what they should do. Talk about cruel and unusual. That would have to be in violation of the Geneva Convention right there.
Speaking of gay songs, I know this song is gay. Pretty much everything by this group is gay, but I can't help it. Everytime I hear Starship and "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" on the radio, I turn it up and sing loudly, and badly. I sing it with feeling. I like "Sara" and "We Built This City", too. lol Wow, I gotta stop these true confessions. What is most disturbing is who that song makes me think of, and that I call this person anytime I hear it. "Saahruhuhuh Saaaahruh, storms are brewin' in your eyes. Whoaooohoh. Saaahruhuhuh Saaharuh, no time is a good time for goodbye..."
On a related note, the guy from Starship always reminds me of the guy in the B-52s. I've never seen them side by side, but whenever I see one, I think in my mind that they must look alike somewhat.
I really love Sun Drop. It is the sweetest nectar I can imagine. I have been trying to cut back on soft drinks, and drink more fruit juice and water, and I have cut back. But I cannot completely cut out Sun Drops. This must be what it is like to be addicted to LSD or something. No, come to think of it, that is nothing like this. Oh wait. What?
We only practiced for about 45 minutes last night. The lights never came on and it was becoming an adventure trying to track fly balls. That's the second time the guy has not shown up to turn on the lights. Oh well. I could use the break. I finished up laundry and went by Subway to get some dinner. I forgot to watch Clinton on Letterman. Urgh!
On a related note, we got our softball schedule yesterday. Fourteen games. The regular season runs from August 10 thru September 23. I imagine there'll be a postseason tournament after that. Our first game is Tuesday at 6:15 against Vaughn & Webster Heating & Cooling. lol Look out.
On another related note, I think my Mom is going to come to all my games. Aw, it's sweet, I know. But she was looking at my schedule yesterday and was like, "6:15? I'll have to fly to get there in time for those, but I should be able to make it." When I played Little League, my Mom was the one you could hear above all others, screaming, "Come on, Jeffrey, one more strike!" and stuff like that. lol Hopefully, she's over that now.
Oh, you might not have heard this on the biased mainstream news, but workers filled in the Grand Canyon Monday. Well, Grand Canyon Southeast anyway. For those of you who have been to my apartment, you know what I mean. There are these huge, HUGE potholes in the alley around the apartments which I had come to believe were naturally created on a 1:20 scale to precisely match a portion of the Grand Canyon. Anyway, they've been filled.
Finally, I recently added a couple of links to the Blog Nation, Tiffany and Deanna. Tiffany is in Memphis, and Deanna is a fellow Allison Fisher fan in Missouri. Check 'em out.
"And we can build this thing together, stand this tall forever. Nothing's gonna stop us now. And if this world runs out of lovers, we'll still have each other. Nothing's gonna stop us. Nothing's gonna stop us..."
