There was a VERY strict rule about not singing at the dinner table. Now that I'm an adult, we always have dinner music and I find myself singing. Sometimes I feel guilty and then I realize it's my house, my mom is long gone and the food still tastes great in it's musically tainted way.

My husband and I were having a conversation regarding 'job bitchin' the other day. I complain about my job and I realize and understand that I really have no obvious reason to do so. I've been in my industry for a couple of decades so I know my job quite well, I get a very nice salary, and I work for a great company. So I have not one reason to complain about my job and yet I do. What I've realized is that I want to buy my time back. I want to be able to have the freedom to simplify and downsize my life and not be beholden to someone else to make them wealthy, while I collect my fraction of the take. This insight comes with my college education, my hard work and growing weary of doing the same thing day after day. So with that said, the plan is in place to choose to make a change, after all that's all we have; that ability to make choices. All that aside, I find it amazing the power of words and our individual interpretation.

This is a good thing for me, because I often read, 'he then threw a blop blop blop, which caused great rejoicing' Now I can see what all the fuss is about, via the video tubes. Carry on

I was thinking that he must have smelled like a pastrami sandwich, I'm glad that thought was corrected. Quite amusing!

It's odd that you are writing this, right now. I had similiar thoughts a while back when I caught Stand By Me while clicking through the channels. I had mostly zereod in on how you are a writer and that you look nothing like Richard Dreyfuss...thankfully.

That is so awesome, I couldn't quit grinning! We've had this game one month to the day. My husband and I are both mphh-ty years old and we LOVE it. Our 18 year old daughters rushs home from work so we can all play Rock Band 2. It's really getting in the way of reality, but is an ohsogood way. I did think of you the other day when we unlocked the 'endless set'. Nope, haven't played that yet!
