Dean Martin 2- electric boogaloo

Powder your face with sunshine
Put on a great big smile
Make up your eyes with laughter
Folks will be laughing with you in a little while
Whistle a tune of gladness
Blue never was in style
The future’s brighter when hearts are lighter
So smile smile smile

Powder your face with sunshine
Put on a great big smile
Make up your eyes with laughter
Folks will be laughing with you in a little while
Whistle a tune of gladness
Blue never was in style
The future’s brighter when hearts are lighter
Future’s brighter, hearts are lighter
When you’re wearing a great big smile

Dean Martin…

Send me the pillow that you dream on
Don’t you know that I still care for you?
Send me the pillow that you dream on
So darling, I can dream on it, too

Each night while I’m sleeping oh, so lonely
I’ll share your love in dreams that once were true
Send me the pillow that you dream on
So darling, I can dream on it, too

Send me the pillow that you dream on
Maybe time will let our dreams come true
Send me the pillow that you dream on
So darling, I can dream on it, too

I’ve waited so long for you to write me
But just a memory’s all that’s left of you
Send me the pillow that you dream on
So darling, I can dream on it, too

So I can dream on it, too

Here’s some more info.

Scotto needs to look into finding another job. I was informed yesterday that the company I work for is moving a number of operations North, to Tampa, or removing them altogether. While that may sound like suck, it actually isn’t a terribly bad thing. It inspires me to get of my ass, polish my resume, and really find a job that I can be proud of, and probably be paid more for. There are a number of mail/database companies out here, but I don’t think that’s where I want to go, unless nothing else makes a strong impression on my search.

Things I’d like to do –

Research Librarian (paid to surf for data all day? hoody hoo!)

Teach Kids how to use the computer… although it seems that they have an innate grasp, these days.

Scientist with a science firm, sort of like Danny’s old Job at Geosyntec.

Things I’ll probably end up doing –

VB programming

SQL Programming

Webby stuff

Database management, MIS dept.

What to do, what to do… maybe the classifieds or monster.com will set me right.

I am in a wicked good mood, though.

This could be my chance to go to Arizona, or the Carolinas. Seattle’s cool too, and I could poke around Robb’s old stomping grounds.

Welcome back my friends….

to the show that never ends.

Can I get a Good Morning?

Alleleu! The sun is shining, the cat is playing, the A/C is running, and I am ready for a new day.

Why such a good mood, heck, I don’t know. I’m not going to question it today.

Song running through my head this morning – more muppet stuff… those guys are permanently lodged in my skull, it seems.

If I Were

Kermit – “If I were…”

If I were a poet,
I would write a sonnet.
It would say “I love you.”
Your name would be upon it.
If I were a farmer,
I’d give you a bunny.
If I had a beehive,
You would get free honey.
Fa la la (many times)

If I were a baker,
You could have a cruller
If I were a painter,
Choose your favorite color.
If I had some diamonds,
I’d give you a few,
Anything to show you
How much I love you.
Fa la la, etc.

Did you guess my secret?
I am not a poet.
Couldn’t write a sonnet,
And I think you know it.
I am not a farmer,
Can’t give you a bunny.
I don’t have a beehive,
Sorry ’bout the honey.
Fa la la, etc.

I am not a baker,
Don’t know bread from batter.
And I am not a painter,
And it doesn’t matter.
I don’t need a present,
All I have to do
Is look at you to show you
How much I love you.
Fa la la, etc.

Your superpower is ANIMAL COMMUNICATION! Many people pretend to talk to their pets, but you can really, truly do it. Have you ever mimicked the monkeys or the penguins at the zoo? If you have, you’re on your way to becoming a great animal communicator. Some people think that animal communication has to be vocal. Not so. Any superhero knows that mental telepathy is where it’s at. So while barking at fido might be fun, it’s not the practice you need. Try thinking like an animal. Only when you get into the mindset of, say, a squirrel, will you be able to truly talk to one. If animals could talk, they would probably have a lot to say to you. Imagine talking to a walrus about the deep ocean or to an ant about life underground. Once you’ve perfected your superhuman gift, you’ll never be without interesting conversation.

copycatting Cider, again… from www.emode.com personality test

Openness To Experience

Your high score in the Openness category means that you probably have a strong creative streak. Your broad intellectual curiosity and your interest in the various arts set you apart. Some people may consider you somewhat of a dreamer, and your taste for variety often means moving quickly on to the next experience. This tendency makes you appear a bit flighty and inconsistent. But these elements of your personality simply reflect a character full of new ideas and charged with emotions.

Conscientiousness

Your medium score in the Conscientiousness category means that you have achieved a solid balance in your outlook towards responsibility. You are probably somewhat organized, with a little room for improvement. Your priorities probably reflect a mix of work and play. Thoughtfulness characterizes your thinking style, so you give gravity to important decisions without making a big deal out of minor issues. You are probably serious about achieving success, but do not feel completely driven by this motivation. All in all, you’ve got a very healthy perspective on work and duty.

Extraversion

Your medium score in the Extraversion category defines your social personality. You are probably comfortable in either a crowd or by yourself, and spending time alone or with company is equally enjoyable. When among others, you tend to stand in the foreground, although you may not always wish to take the position of a leader. Instead, you seem to prefer moving between the role of leader and follower, as the situation requires. You probably keep a moderately active social life; you’re generally on the lookout for excitement, but certainly don’t require it. You tend to keep a fairly positive emotional outlook, and people can usually count on your for some good cheer.

Agreeableness

The Agreeableness category refers to your social disposition. Your high score indicates your tendency to forego your own desires for the sake of others – sometimes to a fault. You are probably known as a kind and modest person who is willing to overlook your own needs for the interest of the group. You believe in creating harmony among people, to the point where you can sometimes act a bit dependent. With your straightforward style of communication and your sentimental nature, this isn’t hard for you. You tend to see the world by the light you cast – as honest and genuine.

Negative Emotionality

Negative Emotionality scale refers to your emotional reactivity. Your low score implies that you generally resist the influence of what’s going on around you. Confronted by situations that most people would find upsetting, you’ll often remain calm and rational. For example, strong feelings of embarrassment, sadness, stress or anger are emotions that may not arise too often within you. Instead, you seem to resolve these issues with a minimum of difficulty. Your personality is best characterized as cool and levelheaded.
