“Can You Picture That”
(Dr. Teeth & The Electric Mayhem)

Everybody’s brother, everybody’s lover, I wanna be your lifetime friend.
Crazy as a rocket, nothin in my pocket, I keep it at the rainbow’s end.
I never think of money, I think of milk ‘n honey, grinnin like a cheshire cat.
I focus on the pleasure, somethin I can treasure, can you picture that?

(Dr. Teeth: Floyd, Pick a verse!)

Let me take your picture, add it to the mixture, there it is I got you now!
Really nothin to it, anyone can do it, it’s easy and we all know how.
Now begins the changin, mental rearrangin, nothing’s really where it’s at,
(Teeth) Now the Eiffel Tower’s holdin up a flower. Can you picture that?

Fact is there’s nothin out there you can’t do
Yeah, even Santa Claus believes in you.
Beat down the walls, begin, believe, behold, begat.
Be a better drummer, be an up and comer. Can you picture that?

All of us are winnin, pickin and a-grinnin, Lordy but I love to jam
Jelly-belly gigglin, dancin and a-wigglin, honey that’s the way I am!
Lost my heart in Texas, Northern lights affect us, I keep it underneath my hat,
Aurora Borealis, shinin down on Dallas! Can you picture that? horhh

Can you picture? You gotta see it in your mind!
Can you picture? You know it’s quick and easy to find!
Can you picture? You don’t have to buy a frame!
Can you picture? Can you picture that?
Can you picture that?

Use it if you need it, don’t forget to feed it!
Can you picture that?

(Oh wow, can you get behind it? Fer shure, reeeally!)

Well, April is gone.

Well, April is gone. 5 hours toward Utah at this writing. A good thing for her I think, and for me too. I’m feeling some separation anxiety, which surprises me, I guess any change in habit is disconcerting. I hope I can maintain communication with her, but I’m guessing that she won’t make the effort. We’ll see, maybe she’ll write or call. I’ll keep my ‘3 shots then skip’ rule.

Having privacy again is weird. I keep expecting someone to come home, or be late or something. But I’m alone with Newt now. Oh! That Reminds me, I need to set up the Newtcam again, now that I’m not stepping on anyone’s private toes.

Where has mootpoint gone off too? I miss him. A good guy.

Suzy goes on her cruise starting next weekend. Hm. Just as well, I’d probably rebound at her with great velocity if she was around. I don’t want that.

Danny is back at School teaching again… he’s going to be quite busy.

Little Brother and I will get together, and I look forward to seeing Robby, and Dave, and Cathi, too.

been out of commission.

Nuts. Gone too long w/out an update…

I don’t remember what I’ve been eating.

The Sleep study tonight was a bust, going again next Sunday night.

bah. I’m so irritated about that, I’m not even going to go into it. suffice to say, insurance companies, HMO, incompetents and boobs all need to stay out of my way in the next week.

April’s leaving at 3:30 PM today. Mixed feelings, but mostly happy about it. Not going to work, going to see her off at the station.

Considering heavily getting another cat. ‘Franklin’ a brown kitty, for Newton.

too many journal entries to read tonight, and I’m not in a mood to contribute positively, so I’ll leave ’em alone.

let’s see. *good things* that happened this weekend.

Saw the Cell with Robb. Spiffy visuals. Saw Godzilla with April. Whee giant rubber monster. I loved it… 17th of 23 Godzilla movies I’ve seen. (24 if you count the American broderick atrocity) Met a new gaming group that will have the hunters in it, and no evil f’ing shadowfist games to eliminate Rp. Josh seems nice, if enthusiastic. Got a bunch of video tapes for cheep at the store, Wizards, Silent Running, a boy and his dog, they live, and alien nation for $20 total. groovy.

stolen from myth, latraviata and cider, my turn!

Interesting factoids about me:

My first real job was page at the local library, helping folks find information, and I’ve loved the idea ever since.
I’ve been a vegetarian for a little bit over a decade.
I haven’t driven a car in over 4 years, and haven’t had a proper permit in well over 8.
I am incredibly fortunate to have some wonderful friends in Danny, Dave and Cathi, who can be relied on to help me in times of dire need.
I like most childern and animals more than grownups.
I am a big fan of folklore and mythology.
I like women that are curvy.
I have a younger brother, who has been on TV and in magazines for professional Surfing.
Fall is my favourite season, green and purple my favourite colors.

Ten interesting lieoids about me:

The vegetarian thing doesn’t extend to *human flesh*.
My cat is really a spy, and plans on killing me once his mission is done here.
I love the musical stylings of Yoko Ono.
I can smell when women are ‘having that time’.
I’ve spent over 1/3 of my life in jail, for a crime I didn’t commit… but I don’t mind because they never caught me for something far worse.
I long for the a return of the sensibilities of the ’50s. the 1450’s.
When intimate with someone, a sign of my love is my falsetto yodels.
While I openly admit the rulers of the earth are giant ants, I rarely talk about the queen cheese that controls their drone-like actions.
I secretly admire Rush Limbaugh.
Everything I say is clever ventriloquism from my anus.

Eventful morning…

10:30 am – transcribed from my palm pilot.

Spent the last Half-hour with a friendly pooch- looked like a bull terrier/dalmation mix. He followed me up the street, and some folks kep an eye on him when I went into the bakery to get someone to call animal control. The Baker guy gave him some water, while I checked his tag… all it said was that he’d gotten a rabies shot in Miami-Dade, a good long distance for a dog to walk. The jewelry store guy next door came out with a cord to use for a leash, and said he’d keep an eye on the dog, let him sit in the store in the A/C until they got more info. Cool shopkeepers around here. 🙂 The dog was a total sweetie. So I headed to the bus stop, and barely caught my ride to work… writing this on the bus.

10:45 Angry Hatian woman yelling at the top of her lungs at the bus driver, because it costs $.50 to bring a child aboard, and she thought it was free for kids. A long foul-mouthed diatribe, lasted about 10 minutes…I didn’t know a person could yell that long and loud without getting kicked off the bus. I’m impressed that the driver didn’t call a cop.

2:35 updating in LJ, I’m hungry, havent’ eaten since chinese last night… and it was small then.
