sleepless in orlando

lol, somewhere in the nineties i wrote something with that title inspired muchly by sleepless in seattle because i am a ridiculously hoplessly hopeful romantic at heart and meg ryan is just too cute (she has her own garden after all, as so many other fantasies have {remember stevie, from long before the internet, there are hundreds of pages in her book} and tom and meg do that innocent awkward amazing love at first site so awfully well and that was the most magical love i ever knew way back when, that first sight (site? lol) feeling, and i would love to find it again but that's sort of another story)... i didn't find it, but until i do, here is the point of it all...

yeah, so i whine and complain and detail the drama or life (of? lol) and maybe you think i am in need of comfort or reassurance or something (oh?) but while comfort and reassurance is wonderful (won't see me turning it away, sometimes lam) i am mostly lam (laughing at myself) between the lines as i record the experience i know as life... the annoyances, frustrations, and any other worrisome events pour into words and resolve into peaceful acceptance as i figure out what i want (wonder if i still do now lol lam) and then i do it... love that freedom amidst the compromises of life...

if you only knew the peace and pleasure that comes for me after letting everything flow into words, you'd understand... something like this (so simple old friend)... and if you find joy in the sadness, you just may know the secret to a happy life...

it's a wonderful life, full of fun and emo and narf :)

HUG :)

Catch up (and know more)

musical distractions

If people had visible signs or meters that told something about them, what would you want it to tell you?

dumb poll (above), smart responders

all the previous poll votes were somehow erased, so, nevermind... ironically or coincidentally or whatever, the results were very close in practical numbers to the results above shown with just three votes, if you understand the mathematics behind that extrapolative reasoning... i will probably remove the poll at some point... it is a ridiculously useless feature...


the thing is, with my tendency to babble and meander and whine and allow distraction to take the lead more often than not, even in this blog that sort of meant to merge brevity with focus like some bloggers do, searching for key words does not always lead to specific information about the subject of that key word... but... here is a start at an easy way to search for key words in this blog... use the search box at the top of the blog to search for words not listed here... if ya wanna, that is... and feel free to suggest words to add to this search shortcut section... click on the words below :)

WORK ... JOB ... MUSIC ... LOVE ... SOFTBALL ... KA ... 42 ... LOL ... LAM ... LAA ... ... ...
