I Just Wanna F*ing Dance

Love. This. (Yes, the "F" word is a mainstay in it, so don't watch if that offends you - but oh so worth watching anyway)



Update: I should have mentioned in the original post, because it adds so much - this is from "Jerry Springer, The Opera". I kid you not.

Driving to work the other morning ... a little hazy, but I love the view of the Space Needle and the Olympic Mountains coming down from Capitol Hill ...


Hunter loves sitting in his kitty condo by the open window when it's nice out ...



Our white lilac tree (it's ancient and huge and yes, a tree) just barely starting to open outside the office window ... not really giving off a scent yet, but within a week I bet Scott and I will be drunk from it ...

April 12 of 12, and Easter

12 of 12 is so much easier to do on a Sunday ...



For those of you unfamiliar, you post 12 pictures of your day on the 12th of each month, and share them via Chad's blog and see other people's day from around the world.



Here are mine this month, all taken on Sunday, April 12, 2009 in Seattle, Washington. Rainy Easter, work in the morning, brunch at a neighbors' house, dyeing eggs ... y'know, a typical Sunday:

Good Friday

Two different versions of the song Gethsemane, from Jesus Christ Superstar. A combination Maundy Thursday and Good Friday post.








I only want to say
If there is a way
Take this cup away from me
For I don't want to taste its poison
Feel it burn me,
I have changed - I'm not as sure
As when we started

Then I was inspired
Now I'm sad and tired
Listen, surely I've exceeded
Expectations
Tried for three years
Seems like thirty
Could you ask as much
From any other man?

But if I die,
See the saga through,
And do the things you ask of me,
Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me,
Nail me to their tree,
I'd want to know,
I'd want to know, my God,
I'd want to know,
I'd want to know, my God,
I'd want to see,
I'd want to see, my God,
I'd want to see,
I'd want to see my God!

Why I should die?
Would I be more noticed
Than I ever was before?
Would the things I've said and done
Matter any more?
I'd have to know,
I'd have to know, my Lord,
I'd have to know,
I'd have to know, my Lord,
I'd have to see,
I'd have to see, my Lord,
I'd have to see,
I'd have to see my Lord!

If I die what will be my reward?
If I die what will be my reward?
I'd have to know,
I'd have to know, my Lord,
I'd have to know,
I'd have to know, my Lord!

Why, why should I die?
Oh, why should I die?
Can you show me now
That I would not be killed in vain?
Show me just a little
Of your omnipresent brain
Show me there's a reason
For your wanting me to die
You're far too keen on where and how,
But not so hot on why.
Alright - I'll die!
Just watch me die …
See how I die,
See how I die!


Then I was inspired
Now I'm sad and tired
After all I've tried for three years -
Seems like ninety -
Why then am I scared
To finish what I started?
What you started -
I didn't start it!
God thy will is hard,
But you hold every card.
I will drink your cup of poison.
Nail me to your cross and break me.
Bleed me, beat me,
Kill me, take me now,
Before I change my mind.

Happy Birthday!!!!!

Look - today is Scott's birthday!


I wouldn't say he's over the hill ... but he does act that way sometimes ...




He makes friends so easily ...



And we're good together.


Go on over and wish him a Happy Birthday!

I love you SB.

MatterPics

It was sunny and 73 degress today! In Seattle!! After the most f***ed-up winter I can remember since moving here 14 years ago (including snow on April 1 - hahahahahaha, that was funny!), the windows are all open, we can smell barbecues cooking, and we have SPRINGTIME MATTERPICS!!



















Just Another Day in the 'Hood.

This crap happens every single day in our neighborhood, mostly on our block. A car pulls up and parks, the driver saunters away, and the passengers hang around the car, either drinking or doing drugs in the car, or just hanging out. This is not what innocent people do on a Saturday. The driver is usually dealing drugs on the next corner.

This car was in front of our house for over an hour ... apparently a lot of us called the police about it.


This is really pissing me off, and it's only been getting worse for the past year or so. I'm thinking of getting a gun. So much for my Liberal Democrat status.

April Fool's Day.

  • Scott told me this morning that he had to throw away the toothpaste. He thought that adding food coloring to it would be a great prank. He decided this morning that he was wrong.

  • Fake dead rat in the refrigerator.

  • Fake severed head on the pile of clean folded towels.

  • Two motion-activated screaming Halloween things hidden in my car. One didn't go off until I was already driving.

  • I forgot the "Microwave Usage Tracking Form" that Scott made with my company's logo to post in the kitchen. Next year ...

  • At our department meeting today, some people shared pictures of recent trips to Egypt and Thailand. I shared pictures of going to Auburn, Washington to get Joe Jetta repaired. This was the last picture:
