It’s plain to see you know the real me.

bubble-bathI took a bubble bath tonight. I cleaned the tub (the cats like to roll around in it when the sun hits it in the morning – hi, I don’t feel like bathing and coming out more hairy than when I went in), filled it and dumped in some Aveeno Oatmeal Bath Powder, poured myself a glass of Barefoot (Sauvignon Blanc, this time), lit my new lilac scented candle from the Yankee Candle Company (have I mentioned that lilacs are my very most favorite scent and flower?) and set my laptop up on the bathroom counter. I opened up iTunes and set it to “shuffle” my whole music library (which now contains ONE HUNDRED AND SIXTY-EIGHT more songs, thanks to Taoist Biker). As I stepped in, Creedence Clearwater Revival was playing “Hey, Tonight”. This is what followed:

“Hurting Kind” by Robert Plant
“Decadence” by Disturbed
“Left to My Own Devices” by The Pet Shop Boys
“Take On Me” by Aha
“Momma Cried” by Alison Krauss
“Why Can’t This Be Love?” by Van Halen
“All These Things That I’ve Done” by The Killers
“All My Love” by Lez Zeppelin

How’s THAT for random? It made for an entertaining soak, at any rate.


Calvin has gone for a ride on the motorcycle (look at him, entertaining himself for no money!), and I’m listening to music and writing this. It strikes me that I’m inclined to use a lot of lines from “I’m a Loser, Baby” by Beck, for taglines and entry titles (except this one). I’ve used, “Soy un perdedor” as a tagline, I’ve used, “You can’t write if you can’t relate” as an entry title, and I’ve used, “Shave your face with some mace in the dark” as another entry title. Just now I noted down that I want to use, “In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey” as another tagline (I keep a file for such thoughts).

So, you guys tell me. WHAT, exactly, is my fixation with this song?

And don’t you hate it when embedding is disabled?


Aaannnd, Google Video and CMT are not allowing me to embed, or WordPress isn’t, whichever, and I couldn’t find it on YouTube, so here is a link to the song from which I got this entry’s title (and lookit me go, two (big) glasses of wine and still grammatically correct!).


Calvin’s back! Later, taters!

    I noticed your comments about lilac scented Yankee Candle. While recently shopping for the same candle I ran across Spring Lilac from Village Candle. There is no comparison!! Village Candle is so much better, purer fragrance…and the best part they are much cheaper. Now that I have it home and am burning it, the quality is far better than Yankee! Village Candle has converted another die hard Yankee customer. I’m headed back to the store to see what other fragrances I can find. You should try Village.

    “In the time of chimpanzees I was a monkey” is one of my friend’s Myspace quotes, so every time I see his page, the damn song is in my head for two days. So thanks for that. I too use that song way more than I realized. What happened to Beck, anyway? He used to be weird and so cool and now he’s just weird.

    I admire you taking the time to take a bath. I’ve tried to make myself do it and can’t; I don’t know why. I used to love baths.

    On the candle tip – my favorite Yankee of all time is Clean Cotton. If I had my way, I’d have the car air freshener, the plug-in oil things, the candles, votives, and tart burners all in that one flavor all at the same time. I would eat it if I could. But my MIL bought me one for Christmas I’d never sniffed before; Sun & Sand and it’s delicioso too. My two cents. On scents. HAAAhwhaaha – help me.
