wandering mind, or thoughts of the day

"'Heat, humidity combine to torture East ' - WASHINGTON - Record-breaking heat and oppressive humidity made people across the eastern half of the country miserable Wednesday and sent tourists in the nation's capital scrambling for relief in the cool marble halls of Capitol Hill. "

And Thursday was even warmer. I actually had to retreat to the airconditioning... I hate ac. I like hot temps. But today was 97, with the humidity making it feel like well over 100. Back into the 80-85 range tomorrow.

dc talk, "What Have We Bacome?" lyrics...

A preacher shuns his brother
Cause his bride's a different color
And this is not acceptable
His papa taught him so
It was love that he'd been preaching
But this was overreaching
The boundaries stretchin' further
Than his heart would choose to go

Like an angel with no wings
Like a kingdom with no king

What have we become?
A self indulgent people
What have we become?
Tell me where are the righteous ones?
What have we become?
In a world degenerating
What have we become?

Speak your mind, look out for yourself
The answer to it all is a life of wealth
Grab all you can cause you live just once
You got the right to do whatever you want
Don't worry about others or where you came from
It ain't what you were, it's what you have become

Mom and Dad are fightin'
As Rosie lies there crying
For once again she's overheard
Regrets of their mistake
With Christmas bells a-ringing
Little Rosie'd leave them grieving
The gift she'd give her family
Would be the pills she'd take

An inconvenient child
She wasn't worth their while

What have we become?
A self indulgent people
What have we become?
Tell me where are the righteous ones?
What have we become?
In a world degenerating
What have we become?

Speak your mind, look out for yourself
The answer to it all is a life of wealth
Grab all you can cause you live just once
You got the right to do whatever you want
Don't worry about others or where you came from
It ain't what you were, it's what you have become

What about love?
What about God?
What about holiness?
What about mercy, compassion and selflessness?

What have we become?
A self indulgent people
What have we become?
Tell me where are the righteous ones?
What have we become?
In a world degenerating
What have we become?
What have we become?
Have we come undone?
What have we become?
Have we come undone?
What have we become?

Speak your mind, look out for yourself
The answer to it all is a life of wealth
Grab all you can cause you live just once
You got the right to do whatever you want
Don't worry about others or where you came from
It ain't what you were, it's what you have become

Selfish... With selfish...
Selfish people
When you gonna learn?
Everyone of us
Gathered 'round in trust
What have we become?

For those who notice, yes, I did cut a 2 or 3 line section. I have my reasons. This is about what I've been thinking about, not the song.
...that song used to make me cry.

Gave my resume to a vet hospital today... I'm probably going to get a job in the kennel. Full time, 4 days a week, insurace, money to buy my work clothes, under 40 minutes away, AND I can move up from where I'm hired, which will be a huge help in my goal of BEING a vet. I'll let ya'll know how it goes.

My niece has mild jaundice, but she should be ok tomorrow.

...I think that's all for now...


"Sunny Came Home", Shawn Colvin

Sunny came home to her favorite room
Sunny sat down in the kitchen
She opened a book and a box of tools
Sunny came home with a mission

She says days go by I'm hypnotized
I'm walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire

Sunny came home with a list of names
She didn't believe in transcendence
It's time for a few small repairs she said
Sunny came home with a vengeance

She says days go by I don't know why
I'm walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire

Get the kids and bring a sweater
Dry is good and wind is better
Count the years, you always knew it
Strike a match, go on and do it

Days go by I'm hypnotized
I'm walking on a wire
I close my eyes and fly out of my mind
Into the fire

Light the sky and hold on tight
The world is burning down
She's out there on her own and she's alright
Sunny came home
Sunny came home...

So your niece has a bit of juandice? That's pretty common I think. My first daughter had it for a couple of days.

Good luck on the new job!!!

so. me here with nose stuffed into a paper-towel, eyez shutting on me..not a flattering sight.

but {{grinz}} tis signs o' detox, so im happy, kinda.

not sure whether this is what da first song iz bout, but..

being somewhat different from other kids, i kinda felt left out. sometimes, i choose to be that way. liek, purposely avoid social functions and other 'normal' activities that kids my age used to engage in..

@ 18 i flew overseas. funny thing iz, that being different thing just helped to fit in cuz i was always different from everyone else, e'en in my own country!!!

we base our differences on so many factors, y'know? the important thing iz to see past the outer shell...to what lies inside.

sometimes, a guy can be more like a girl, or an animal {{wry smile}}

but this can only happen if someone is willing to make that leap. hei, im guilty of freeze-framing myself too. not 2 days ago realized that worry was eating me cuz i wasnt sure what i was supposed to be like

...well, screw not knowing what to be like, eh?? tis better to be oneself, and make that long, ardous journey of finding out along the way rather than be ensconced in a shell not of one's true essence
