Lyrics for Tuesday


Jet Plane in a Rocking Chair
By Richard Thompson


Jet plane in a rocking chair
Roller coaster roll nowhere
Deaf and dumb old dancing bear
I'll change this heart of mine
This time, this time

Sea cruise in a diving bell
Run a mile in a wishing well
Soft soap and nothing to sell
I'll change this heart of mine
This time, this time

Here comes the real thing
I've been waiting for so long, for so long
I've been looking for a love like you

Crossed line on a telephone
Crossed eyes and a canny moan
Crossed fingers and head for home
I'll change this heart of mine
This time, this time

Play sick in a feather bed
Act cool when you're stoned and dead
I'm a fool with a size one head
I'll change this heart of mine
This time, this time

Here comes the real thing
I've been waiting for so long, for so long
I've been looking for a love like you

Jet plane in a rocking chair
Roller coaster roll nowhere
Deaf and dumb old dancing bear
I'll change this heart of mine
This time, this time
This time, this time
This time, this time

I was going to post some Whitman but this song has been in my head since Lisa sang it on Sunday. If I made songvids it would have at least five different fandoms attached to it (though I don't have appropriate footage in two cases to go with the lines from books that make me think of the characters). So the Whitman must wait until tomorrow.

Forgot to mention that last night before I put on Gangster No. 1, which fit my mood perfectly at the time, I tried to watch Pride, which did not, but I wanted to make the attempt because the opportunity to hear Sean Bean, Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet and Robbie Coltrane voicing lions in an A&E movie really seemed like something that should not be passed up. We were taping it so that the kids could watch it at a more reasonable hour than 10 p.m., so I knew I would probably be seeing it again at some point and ended up switching away very quickly. Now I am reading from a couple of people that it was pretty rough going. Opinions? Should I watch this with my kids or pretend it never happened?

cherry_glitter has posted a round-up of her cicada pictures. I miss the little buggers already and I'm afraid to look forward to their return because it is so much of my life away. Now, gacked from ladymalen:

Blackbird
Wow, you're a black bird. Blackbirds hold the
gateway between the natural and spiritual
worlds, ever urging us to become more
self-aware. Your melodious song calls to the
twilight and will keep you safe during
difficult changes.

What druid animal are you?

Oak
OAK
You are boisterous and affectionate. You are the
kind of tree that takes nothing sitting down,
and is always ready for an adventure. You like
to see everything that goes on around you. You
like the warm weather, but you flourish when
the nights tend to grow slightly colder. You
are someone who likes to extend your days into
the night hours because you never want to leave
anything unfinished. You love an audience when
you do things and you like to show off
sometimes, but others admire your attitude. You
fear past mistakes coming back to haunt you,
but try to live day by day. You admire the
strength of others and try to find the same in
yourself. When you leave this word, you want to
make an impression so that you'll never be
forgotten.

What's Your Inner Tree?

Shall be out much of the day taking my son to his middle school orientation. Hope everyone's today is better than yesterday!
