Aug 7, 2007


I had a dream about giving permission to be mentioned in a personal newspaper article, which I happily granted, then being given a handful of money and asked to donate it to a good nonprofit. I went to a USA for Africa record, found an address for the fund, and sent it there (as if that fund still even exists??). So, obviously, I now have crummy-ass "We Are The World" in my head, which is a weird way to start anything, but especially anything as big as an entire day.

Later today, I'm heading over to my accountant's office to get a few things in the works. Doctors and accountants-- I dread going, but it's nice to leave with things in order, yes? Anyway, I'll try to spare her the, "There's a choice we're makinnnnnnnn! We're saving our own liiiiiiives! It's true we make a better day! Just you and meeeeeeeeee!" And, you know the worst part of this mental song-loop is... do I have the Dylan part stuck in my head? No. No, I do not. Instead it's the yeahyeahYEAHYEAH or whoawhoaWHOAWHOA (whatevs) Cyndi Lauper contribution. Unforch.

Elton John said that bloggers should be shot. Drivel like this right here is exactly why. Anyway, I'll get back to a more heartfelt post later in the week. For now, that's the haps.

I'm loving all of this rain on Chicago. It makes me eager for fall weather.

Elton John said that? How rude!

Yay! Dreary skies and mist on my face - count me as a supporter of the rainy weather sentiment.

Elton John should be shot for foisting that "Candle in the Wind" song on us.........twice!

"...Doctors and accountants-- I dread going,..."

Alas, I am both.
"It's true we make a better day! Just you and meeeeeeeeee!" is now only a pipe-dream for me now.

Do you dream of pipes? You do dream a lot, ya know.

Good luck with the Accountant--like the doc, it will probably hurt less than you fear. :)
I've been craving some fall weather too. Something about tolerating the heat less and less as I age!

Wasn't the storm wonderful? I think an essential part of a perfect summer, with lots of heat and sunshine, is raging summer thunderstorms at night.
