I seem to be struck by you...

I am so addicted to "Paralyzer" by Finger 11. The beat in the beginning catches me, and the guy's voice is super-hot. I don't know even know what exactly he means by "if your body matches what your eyes can do, you'll probably move right through me on my way to you" - but I love it. Yowza.

I'm one of those annoying persons (word choice?) who listens to a song over and over and over until I reach my limit. Right now I'm only on playcount 13 for this song...perhaps one day I'll reach the monumental playcount of "Big Girls Don't Cry" by Fergie, which is sitting pretty at 53 plays.

That's actually quite phenomenal, since the next closest song is "Desperation" by Miranda Lambert, with 19 plays. I was clearly in a self-pitying mood for quite some time.

A month or so ago I read Dingley Falls by Michael Malone. The cover labels it as "the wildest, sexiest novel of the year!!" (which was 1980. a surprisingly steamy year, apparently). My friends lovingly nicknamed it "pornography," but really, that's not what it's about. It follows a bunch of characters in the fictional town of Dingley Falls, Connecticut, and one storyline is that of an old woman. One of my favorite passages in the book relates to her:

"She felt sorry for herself, and sorrier because there was no one but herself to pity her, and sorrier still because self-pity was such an unattractive quality, revealing, as it did, that very weakness of character for which she pitied herself."
- pg. 265

Reading that, I fairly jumped out of my chair. I'm positive that I pumped my fist in the air and yelled "YES!" There's nothing like reading your thoughts on a page, knowing that someone else has thought them and you're not the only one feeling a certain way.

That's not to say that I'm feeling that way right now, but you know what I mean?

Life is good. The Christmas lights and wreaths are up at Union Station. I'm going home for Thanksgiving in a week. I have articles to edit at work, a new planner in my pocketbook, Argentinian wine on top of the fridge, and gingerbread in the oven. Can anyone ask for anything more?

I've never made gingerbread. Is it hard?
well...um....you must know, whenever I say "make" I mean "used a mix" - it was quite easy to add water and an egg ;-)

I used the "krusteaz" brand mix. It's quite delicious!!
it does sound spectacular :)
I am going to follow your lead, except it'll be french wine of course ;)
