There I go, thinking in the abstract again. Sometimes, I do my best thinking while walking in traffic, but I wasn't feeling up to taking a walk today, so I decided to walk, metaphorically, down this interesting hallway, in an attempt to clear the cobwebs from my brain. Come along with me if you like...
I really like lemons. The Meyer lemon is my favorite variety, and I am lucky enough to have my very own tree. It was Elvis's favorite at one time, up until he devised a brilliant scheme to catch a bird, that one day went terribly awry. It seems that he would sit and watch birds flying in and out of the tree all day long. It was fascinating to him. One day, he decided to climb up into the bottom branches of the tree. I watched as he slowly made his way up to the second from bottom branch. He positioned himself against a thick branch and then did something amazing. He opened his mouth! I couldn't believe it. He sat with his mouth open for about five minutes, apparently waiting for a bird to fly in it! Talk about "home delivery!" His adventure didn't end the way he expected however, a few minutes later a bird landed on the branch directly above him...then pooped on his head. He got out of the tree and ran to me to clean him off. I got to be a mommy that day! :)
It makes me sad to watch the news sometimes. Those children in Pennsylvania should be alive, but instead some dark, bitter heart took their life from them. How dare someone rob them of their life, before they had a chance to grow and learn, and live. Sigh. Why again did Bush not keep his promise to sign the Assault Weapons Ban? Oh yeah, it might have lost him some votes from the NRA. I forgot. Like the Corvair, the man, and his administration, are unsafe at any speed! :( And what do you think should be done about the Speaker of the House ignoring the fact that a member of congress was sending suggestive IM's and emails to underage, male pages? I say it's time to clean house!

It's been way too long since I did a whole entry devoted to David Duchovny. Sigh. I still love him after all these years! I saw the movie "Return To Me" the other night, and I cried and cried. One of my favorite moments from The X-Files, is at the end of the episode, "Post Modern Prometheus," when Fox and Dana are dancing to the Cher tune, "Walking In Memphis." Swoon. Oh well, I would look silly dancing with David Duchovny, in that I am only 4' 11. LOL. :) But silly or not, I wouldn't turn him down, if he asked me to dance. LOL. Trivia: Fox Mulder's birthday is 10/13... the same date as my wedding anniversary. :) Purely coincidental, or is it an X-File? You decided! Bwahahahahaha :)

Raindrops keep falling on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turning red
Crying's not for me, 'cause, I'm never gonna stop the rain by complaining
Because I'm free, nothings worrying me...
