Stepping stone, cover

This guy is GOOOD.

Black and Gold

A realllllly good cover of my new favorite song of the moment. Sam Sparro's Black and Gold

Since You've been Gone

Here's the thing we started off friends
It was cool but it was all pretend
Yeah yeah
Since you've been gone

You dedicated you took the time
Wasn't long till I called you mine
Yeah Yeah
Since you've been gone

And all you'd ever hear me say
Is how I pictured me with you
That's all you'd ever hear me say

But since you've been gone
I can breathe for the first time
Im so movin on
Yeah yeah
Thanks to you
Now I get
What I want
Since you've been gone

How can I put it? you put me on
I even fell for that stupid love song
Yeah yeah
Since you've been gone

How come I never hear you say
I just wanna be with you
I guess you never felt that way

But since you've been gone
I can breathe for the first time
Im so movin on
Yeah yeah
Thanks to you
Now I get
I get what I want
Since you've been gone

You had your chance you blew it
Out of sight, out of mind
Shut your mouth I just can't take it
Again and again and again and again

Since you've been gone
I can breathe for the first time
Im so mov…

Squid

"An underwater camera at an oil and gas drilling site off the coast of Texas has captured a rare sight: a squid with "elbows."
This is cool

Ok so you know how I posted "feather fate" about catching a "wild" parakeet in my back yard? Well,  id like to think it's wild, but thats actually almots impossible. They are from australia, not lake forest. They can't really survive for long on their own. So fate was probably someone else's pet, that flew away. Or maybe, that they let go..
Before I got Five and Parker, I had Dallas. Who was by far my favorite and more entertaining budgie to date. He never shut up, and had a great personality. He wasn't the most friendly one i've had, but he would sit on my shoulder and I loved him. One day I was showing him the wind chimes  outside, and he was on my shoulder. His wings were trimmed, but when I bent down to pick up the gardners bill that was under the door. He flew/fell off and up the front walk way and down the street. I tried calling to him for hours. Walked around, but he's a bird. How are you going to spot a 3" blue spot in lake fore…

My favorite car in the world. 1982 Vette


The 93 Vette I got when I was 16, instead of the 82.

The coolest design i've seen in a while. Honda!?!

 My Graduation present, "Stentorian" 2001 Mustang GT. kaminari body kit, Bose 12" woofer.  Magna flow Exhaust, short throw shifter, yellow gaudges. Hot. 





Preview of 2010 Mustang, Great improvements over the 09.  But I still like the 99+'s best. 


My Mazda3, great car, first car to buy (finance) all by myself. Traded it in for a used X-type, that broke down 1000miles after the warrenty was over, and helped ruin my life. 
The new, and happy, Mazda3. Awesome! 


Now, after 11 different cars, i drive the most generic car in the entire world. Also the best selling. My grandmas 94' White camery. It only has 60k miles on it. No pictures desired.

Feathered Fate

I have two parakeets, Parker and Five. They love each other but they are both boys, so there wont be any babies. And I want babies.

I was going to get them a girl friend, but since I just got a new kitty, i figured Id be pushing my new-pet-luck with my mom. So I was like, well Id rather have a awesome bangle kitten than a third bird. So I figured they would have to wait to get some, and then give me some babies.

So today, when I was sitting in my back yard, drinking some wine, and actually working on my book. I looked up, and right inside the bird feeder we have in the back yard (which i JUST started putting food in a couple days ago) There is a "wild" green parakeet!

I was like, no freaking way. So I was determined to catch it... but catching a bird, outside is no easy task. Almost impossible, but good thing i'm the bird whisperer and a genius.

So I went in the house and got parker and five, who were in my room watching youtube videos of talking parakeets (so they'll l…

"By chance"

That last post's title was kinda random, but also cause I felt it meant. "By chance" like if by chance, it happened I would accept it - kinda thing.

+Synchronicity:

Ok so after I finished that last post I walked into the living room. I had a random older cd on to listen to while i was cleaning.

I walked out and coincidentally a song was on that's titled "By chance" by Sophie Ellis Baxter.

Weird no? Here's the lyrics

Take this down
Turn it around
I am water underneath a bridge
So? What do I know?
Getting here must be a privilege
Should say something meaningful
If at all
Just to fill the air
Or, believe I adore you
Love you if I dare
By chance
When I turn out the light
I'm finding the right line
By chance
I could put this to right not in the rest of this lifetime
Let it slide
Always inside
Isn't worth the indecision I hide
So, nowhere to go
Stimulating no illusion
I should say something pivotal
Belittle
How you let me down
Or, believe I adore you
Love me if you dare
By chance
W…

I have this astrology book that combines both the western and eastern signs into one.

The Chinese base their astrology on the year you were born. The western bases it on the time of year.

They both have 12 different signs. A cycle of 12 signs, Aries is first, Pisces is last. Then it starts over.

Interestingly, which makes me think i'm special, for some reason, I'm the 12ths sign of each. I'm a "Pisces/ Pig"

"this subject benefits from the final position in both zodias. Both pisces and pig wrap up their ancient system. As a resul, pisces/ pig has both the perspective of a very old sage and the misfortune to have had to amass all the flotsam of a twelve- year, twelve month cycle"

In the 600+ page book, My combo is the very last chapter.

All that is just a preface so i can explain where it is i'm coming from. I dont know how or why astology is possible, But it seems to be very accurate.

My mom actually planned me to be a pisces because she says she's only…

Good things come to those who wait

Image
The fortune cookie, i have taped to my computer monitor say: ""Allow yourself time you will reach success."

And so i've waited, i've waited a long time. What i've been waiting for, hasn't been made clear. I was expecting, someday it would.

I thought it would be like some pill. You take it, and a wait for the effect. 1 2, 20 min later. All my problems would be solved. I guess, ironically my biggest problem was the actual waiting.

I guess it's like trying to get that "perfect body" or at least, my perfect body. It's something I realllly want, it's something i've been striving for my whole life. To look in the mirror, and actually like what I see. To be like, wow, I did it. I'm there! But, wanting it isn't enough. I can't just sit around and wait for it to transform into an adonis. It doesn't work like that. It takes both doing something, and withstaining form other things. Not eating certain things, or too much of any…

Chance

And just when i thought I could never love again...

This is my new kitten Chance. He's a snow marble Bangle. It's a type of cat that has some wild African cat in it. They are supposed to have the personality more like a dog.

So far he's been about as good as possible, sleeping on the entire car ride home, and the entire next day. He explored the house for the first time this evening, and my dog spencer is just ignoring him. He is just ignoring her so far, but i'm sure in a couple weeks they'll be bffs. At least until he gets big enough to take her out. He's only 9 weeks old but already really large for his age. The breeder said it was the biggest they've ever had.

Naming him was surprisingly hard. Usually I pick one out instanly and it sticks. Tonight me and my mom were coming up with hundreds of random, and mostly stupid names. On the top of the list were:

Dalton
Scotty
Fierce
Mat
Rocko

but we finally decided on "chance" which was inspired by a Real Chanc…

Just a Dream

Stepping Stone

I remember way back way back when
I said I never wanna see your face again
Cause you were loving yes you were loving somebody else
And I knew oh yes I knew I couldnt control myself
And now they bring you back into my life again
And so I put on a face just like your friends
But I think you know oh yes you know what's going on
Cause the feelings in me oh yes in me are burning strong



But I will never be your stepping stone
Take it all or leave me alone
I will never be your stepping stone
I'm standing upright on my own


You used call me up from time to time
And it would be so hard for me not to cross the line
The words of love lay on my lips just like a curse
And I knew oh yes I knew they'd only make it worse
And now you have the nerve to play along
Just like the mistro beats in your song
You get your kicks you get your kicks from playing me
And the less you give the more I want so foolishly


But I will never be your stepping stone
Take it all or leave me alone
I will never be your stepping stone
I…
