She’s alive!

13 Jul

Man, I’d forgotten how exhausting vacation can be.  We had eight days in Hawaii, then a day at home, then left again for almost two weeks in Idaho/Utah.  Good times were had by all, but I am done in.  One of these days I’ll figure out how to have a relaxing and rejuvenating vacation.  Maybe.  I almost think I’m physically incapable of accomplishing such a feat.

So naturally, my cup of blogging material runneth over, but I hardly know where to start.  Last night while trying to get to sleep I started about a dozen different posts in my head.  I could not stop thinking about it.  It was annoying, actually, because of the exhaustion and the done-in-ness.  And then I finally forced myself to stop thinking about it, but instead I had this song play over and over in my mind.  Not even the whole song.  Just the last line.  Over and over. And over.

What About Me by Kenny Rogers , Kim Carnes and James IngramThe most popular videos are here

How did I know it was this song if it was just the last line?  Because it was Ms. Carnes singing it.  Over and over.  And over.  What do you think it means?

So I’ll be back later this week—maybe tomorrow, maybe Tuesday (wait, tomorrow is Tuesday), maybe Thursday, maybe Friday, heck, even Wednesday’s a possibility, but definitely not Saturday or Sunday because those are typically my non-posting days, although, if I’ve learned anything in my short 35 years on this planet, it’s never say never—but until then, here’s a quick teaser of things to come.

What the heck was that?

Holy dang, it’s a frickin’ sea turtle!

    Can’t wait! I’ve missed you and your blog terribly. I am so sorry about your bad night last night. Almost as sorry as I am that you even know that song–when Menage a trois goes very, very wrong…

    I’m glad you’re back. I was going through some serious nutty-goodness withdrawal.

    I am PARTICULARLY excited to here how beautiful and witty Tawnya is in real life…

    Ugh. Hear. Not here. Where’s my degree, again?

    OK, Shaz, the thought of Mr. Rogers in a menage a trois with well, anyone, is really creeping me out. But I guess I deserve it after posting the song!

    Thanks, Flip!

    Mad—I was getting the shakes from my own giraffe withdrawal.

    Tawnya—So beautiful. So witty. So illiterate. So kidding!

    Mr. Rogers?? In a menage a trois? What?! Where was his cardigan! Oh. You meant the other Mr. Rogers. My bad.

    ARGH, so you WERE in Utah. I should’ve known better than to ask about that in a Scrabble chat. Duh. Should’ve sent an email. You know. The old-fashioned way.

      That’s exactly what I thought when I first saw “Mr. Rogers”–where did that come from??? Then I realized she just meant Mr. Kenny Rogers. And then I was re-disturbed all over again.

    I apologize for the confusion. I certainly did not mean to sully the name of the dearly departed Mr. Fred Rogers!

    May he rest in peace . . .

    YES. You’re finally back. And I’m too busy to catch it the same day. Erg.
