Off to lake side cabin tomorrow. No net access for a week.

Reminder: I've moved to DW and am cross-posting to LJ, which I might peak in on maybe once a week.

Roadkill Redemption, and then some

Something sent to me from my youngest-



I returned the favor by sending the video of Wolf and Sheep, posted by sabotlours :o)

I've been feeling quite feral today, primal even. I finally got some new headphones to replace my old crumbling ones. I noticed right off how much more pronounced the bass is with these and so went on a quest for some music with deep, rolling percussion (the kind that goes right through you and you can feel down below!). I listened to Glass Animals' "Life Itself," Paul Simon's "Obvious Child," and Fleetwood Mac's "Tusk," The Cure, Echo And The Bunnymen, and some Blues Travelers, among others. Naturally this has got my damned tinnitus screaming to be heard above the melodies... but I do love the music.

[I really need to get my hearing checked. I was told in the eighties that I was missing different ranges in both ears, but to me this compensated for itself unless I actually covered one ear. Like, I can hear crickets only on side :D I discovered that when I turned over in bed one night and wondered why it got so silent outside. Since then I have developed obnoxious whistling/ringing in my head, mostly on the left side. I miss words in conversations and find myself asking people to please repeat themselves. *sigh* I'll add this to my list of "what I need to do about my health" this year.]

Cheers!

Parody: Fry Everything!

With apologies to Shakira and Disney, though I bet Weird Al could do a much better job. This one has been rolling around in my head in snippets for over a year. But with state fair season upon us, I felt it was time to finish it, though it could use a lot more polish.

In case you don't know the original:


Fry Everything!

Verse 1
At the state fair tonight
Can’t eat another bite
I can’t believe everything they have
Battered and deep fried.
Don’t know how I’ll hold it down
But I’ve got to try and eat everything.
Oh god there’s more
Another row of stalls
I can’t quit until I try it all.


I might throw-up, but I’ll keep eating
Till I try it all
And I’m round as a ball!
You won’t believe
They have fried everything
They fry everything that you can name.
I might throw-up, but I’ll keep eating
Till I try it all
And I’m round as a ball!
You won’t believe
They have fried everything
They fry everything that you can name.


Fries, Oreos
Fry everything!
Corn dogs, pizza
Fry everything!
Mini donuts
Fry everything!
Twinkies and beer

Verse 2
How can I go on?
I’ve gorged on all this junk food.
Must slow down take some more Rolaids or Tumms.
I can’t eat so fast
It needs to settle down.
Otherwise, I won’t make it through the rest

I might throw-up, but I’ll keep eating
Till I try it all
And I’m round as a ball!
You won’t believe
They have fried everything
They fry everything that you can name.
I might throw-up, but I’ll keep eating
Till I try it all
And I’m round as a ball!
You won’t believe
They have fried everything
They fry everything that you can name.

I might be making a big mistake
I can feel my arteries hardening
But I don’t care!

Mini donuts
Fry everything!
Hot sausage subs
Fry everything!
(sickly sound) oh oh oh oh
Fry everything!
Barf barf barf barf
Fryyyyyyyyyyy everything… (fade out to the sound of a fryolator.)

Down among the briars

"...but please, Br'er Fox, don't fling me in dat briar-patch!"

I was out back yesterday with The Huntress when I realized she was quite interested in a patch of briars near the fence. She's sniffed around in here before, or near here as it is all thorns and vines, but she was truly on the scent of something today. She did her little 'pointer' thing when not just playing snuffing-beagle, and I finally saw what she didn't: a baby bunny among the foliage. Wish I had the camera with me, but alas. I coaxed her away and she reluctantly moved on to another thicket where the rabbits have been known to hide.

Pictures, all safe )

I knew there had been wee ones among the ground cover because it has been harder and harder to get the dog to come away from these hidey places. I even saw the poison ivy and low strawberry plants moving in line as one critter ran off from the pup (she missed that, too). I just hope these fellows get the hell out of the yard or at least into secure places before they become play toys!

Not dead yet

Just very busy volunteering what little spare time I have when I'm not bringing home a paycheck. Every other night Sundays through Thursdays I've been at the local scout camp running the commercial dishwasher. Run home from work, change, run out to the scout camp.

Last Saturday, I was at the Matthews Museum in Union, 'cause they were short staffed due to the Moxie Festival in Lisbon that day. I'm on my way back out there today 'cause they need extra staff during Union's local festival, "Founders Day". The Museum is Stop #12 on this year's DownEast Magazine summer scavenger hunt. We had three participants stop by last Saturday. I wonder how many we'll get today.

Back to the Scout camp tomorrow, Tuesday and Thurs and then in-laws are up and we'll be at a lakeside camp without net access for the last full week of July.

I sure miss having a weekend to myself where I could do something, but at this point, I wouldn't know what to do with myself if I had one. (chuckle)

One of my qualms with DW: I can't see a list of my journal tags while writing a journal entry.

Mortgage follies

I finally got all the documents to my banker for the mortgage process. It's amazing how some documents I trip over in my daily life became scarce when I tried to gather it all together.
The most amusing thing was to get documentation from the Railroad Retirement Board stating that yep, I'm getting a pension.
As I waded through their convoluted voicemail menu, I finally found where I should be, and pressed option 4. This got me a message that my call was important to them, and I'm currently #4 in line. I then was subjected to their worn out music on hold. If you listened real carefully, you could tell it was once a jazzy electric piano piece from the 70s. If you didn't listen carefully, it was; SCREECH, SCREECH, HISS SCREECH SCREECH SCREECH HISS. Did I mention it was also loud? They spared every expense.
