Poem for Tuesday and Disneyland 2000


Disneyland
By John Ondrasik

I Woke up got my lazy ass out of bed
I Watered all the rocks growing in my head
I Had a thought...and fell asleep on you...

There I was somewhere West of Tomorrow Land
Flying through the stars just like Peter Pan
I said...Damn this looks too good to be true...

There she goes... my heart again (would you mind rolling over)
I can feel it in the air (something's coming down)
I don't know and I don't care that it's a small world

It's a nice day if you wake up in Disneyland...
It's a nice day when you wake up in Disneyland...

In my dream everybody's got a little house
A dog, a bank account managed by Mickey Mouse
And the only thing we fight about is the Lakers...

In my dream all the pirates down in Neverland
Never get the Hook... they just get a hand
While the crocs sing Superman till we just can't take it...

There she goes... my heart again (do you mind rolling over)
I can feel it in the air (something's coming down)
I don't know and I don't care if it's a small world

It's a nice day when you wake up in Disneyland...
It's a nice day if you wake up in Disneyland...

We can fly away...

I Woke up got my lazy ass out of bed
I Watered all the rocks growing in my head
I Had a thought... and I looked up to see

The sign read the park she's closed today
E-tickets don't work here no more anyway
Where every day's a magic day to be free You see...

It's a nice day when you wake up in Disneyland...
It's a nice day should you wake up in Disneyland...
It's your L.U.C.K.Y. day should you wake up in Disneyland...
It's a nice day should you wake up in Disneyland...

My desktop and I are at war. I have threatened it with a hammer but it's not intimidated, since it knows I can't replace it right now and I won't really smash it until I can. So I was unproductive and now my cats are looking at me like I'm weird, which is not fair because most of them spent hours licking their own butts.

We watched two episodes of Antiques Roadshow, then caught up on Sunday's Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist, which is the most enraging show. They do beautiful things like the scene at the end with her parents but mostly it is entirely about man pain, especially Max's whom I loathe; I don't even think this week passed the Bechdel Test.

Here are some photos I did manage to get scanned today from Disneyland in 2000, including Pirates of the Caribbean before Pirates of the Caribbean, Mickey and Minnie Mouse greeting us, Aladdin and Jasmine posing with us, Daniel pulling the sword from the stone, and my kids, who thought the barrows near Avebury were just as happy a place:
