Something's gotta give

This song was a #1 hit in 1983-how sad the message still applies!

Sing it, Carrie!

This song is so freakin' awesome!

I haven't heard from them yet, but I'm sure it's just a matter of time before "They Who Take Everything Way Too Seriously" attack the song, claiming it promotes violence, vandalism, revenge, hate, or whatever whacked-out, overblown reaction THEY feel compelled to force upon those of US who can actually think for ourselves.
You see, WE understand that this is just a SONG. Like many songs, it appeals to the emotions of the listener. That is what makes music so universal...who hasn't heard a song they feel could have been written specifically FOR them? I'll admit it, there was a time (many, many years ago,) when I FELT every word of this song. If it had been around back then, it wouldn't have provoked me to act out the lyrics (because I'm not INSANE!) However, just knowing someone MUST have been through it to write it would have been comforting. We all need to know we're not alone in our pain...and that, even though it may seem impossible, someday we WILL get over it. I would have sung this song at the top of my lungs...and after a few hundred replays, I probably would have felt just a little better.

How my mind works...

I like animals better than people.
I cannot understand how anyone can look into the face of a child and cause them pain.
Do we all see colors the same way? Or is what is blue to me is red to you, but since they are constants, they are our reality? (for example: when we are 4, our mothers tell us the grass is green. What if to my brain, that color I see on the grass is purple? Then everything that I ever see that is the same color as that grass will be purple to me...only I call it "green," because that's what I was taught.)
Ditto with how we perceive things to taste...
I'm afraid to stick my hand in the garbage disposal, even though I know it's off.
It irritates me when people say celebrities die in "threes." (My mom does this, but I love her anyway.) What's the timeline for this? If it's 2 deaths in 2 days, then not another one for 3 weeks, maybe they die in "twos." Or if one person dies, then a month later another person dies, then 3 weeks later another, then the next day-another, why is that fourth death the 1st in the morbidity triangle?
I don't trust auto mechanics. I have NEVER had a car problem that doesn't involve either a costly part, or extensive labor (or both!)
P.E. coaches are cruel to allow students to select the members of their teams.
I love "The X-Files," but only the bizarre, creepy episodes. The "alien episodes" bore me.
I LOVE rainy days...and nights...and low, rolling thunder.
I realize that my fear of bugs, lizards, frogs and mice is irrational- and they still scare the hell out of me.
TNT and TBS are far better networks than USA and FX because they never have "paid programming." (And a big "Thank You" to every network that carries 24-hour programming!)

Something I believe in...

Tanker Brothers - Two Soldiers In The War On Terror

Up and Running!

I am amazed that with all of the information available these days, that people can still be so narrow-minded. I am proud of the fact that I can listen and read, and make rational decisions based upon what I learn. In short, I can think for myself...something so many people don't realize they too, can do.

I am blessed to be an American, where I am not persecuted for my thoughts.

I also like to sing.
