Windy but glorious out there.
I am drinking cold cocoa and preparing to go to the church 30th birthday party. It should be fun and festive. I will report on how the song went over before I go to church tomorrow (I’m opening for Audrey the Wonderful (she really is, too, so firm of mind and so soft of voice)).
Paul just called – he’ll be coming as well and is making up some of his famed quinoa tabbouleh. Of course he had to be reminded about it and that’s okay, it’s cool that he’s coming.
Kate is at her level two Foodsafe course, Monday we open a business account, Tuesday my money to close should come in, and then we hammer a cheque and get it to the current owner and get an introduction to the landlord at some point prior to closing. Work is happening every day on the purchase, and while I would have preferred opening an account on Friday one business day won’t make a difference.
Everything people are saying on the internet about Amanda Fucking Palmer’s ‘the Bed Song’ is TRUE. DO NOT WATCH UNLESS YOU ARE OKAY WITH CRYING.
I am writing YET ANOTHER character song for Midnite Moving. It’s from George to Raven and it’s called ‘and then you smile’.
“I am staring off in space
and then I think about your smile and
it sticks in my memory
and it’s stayed stuck for quite a while
The conversations we have had
they often keep me up all day
I’m find I’m hoping that you’ll call
I wasn’t sleeping anyway…
and everything about you is just grand!
Hardly anything about you do I understand.
Everything about you is just swell!
But miscommunication is a laundry chute to hell…
and then you smile…
I think you should smile more
but I’m not going to ask you for it
you can be yourself here and it’s
likely that I will adore it
There’s a subtext in the time
we spend together, can you hear it
Always getting closer and somehow
we never do get near it
Everything about you smells so nice
Wish that we could bottle it, be cheap at twice the price
Everything about you feels so warm
And I am at room temperature and that is not the norm
and then you smile…. and then you smile.”
And no, George and Raven don’t hook up because she goes back to Brendan. And they have a pretty okay relationship, a few wobbles, a bit of weirdness because she was a minor when they first met, but all in all okay, and he knows the Moms so … yeah I’ll shut up now.
