The days aren’t long enough

Didn’t leave work till 8 tonight.  Not so bad since I was staying
most of and sometimes all night last week.  Shouldn’t be bad this
week, but I didn’t get as much done today as I was hoping. 

I’ve had the Eagles stuck in my head for a couple of days now.  I
literally break out into singing Peaceful, Easy Feeling every now and
then.  A couple of girls were singing the chorus at the Mucky Duck
the other day, and then I mentioned that I knew another good Eagles
song, and sang “I like the way your sparkling earrings laaaaay, against
your skin so brown,” and stopped right there.  They didn’t
recognize it and asked what the chorus was, and I honestly couldn’t
remember!  “But the chorus isn’t important in that song!  The
opening lines are the best part!!!”  We gave up. 

That night, I was laying in bed, and all of a sudden, I sang…”I like
the way your sparkling earrings lay against your skin so brown, And I
want to sleep with you in the desert tonight with a billion stars all
around…Cause I got a peaceful, easy feeling…”

Good song.  Six years ago I used to torture myself by singing
along with it on long car trips, pining over a girl whose skin really
was brown.  We were pretty good friends, and fortunately we never
got together like that.  She’s getting married in a few
months.  Anyway, it’s still a good song.  Music is lovely…I
was thinking about 7:30 that I didn’t HAVE to be sitting in a box in
front of a computer all day.  I could be doing something
else. 

Here are a couple more pictures someone emailed me from the previous weekend. 

Held this girl right after she was born.  Crazy that she’s about to graduate from high school.


Outdoes Carrie Fisher, I’d say.  Adorable.

    …oh and it’s a hollow feelin’, when it comes down to bein’ friends… oh yes, i’ve been there before (of course this was with a guy, but that goes without saying). i like the name of the book you’re reading. i think i’ll check it out and see if it’s something elise would dig (her birthday is only a month away).my favorite eagles line is “it’s a girl my lord in a black bed ford, slowin’ down to take a look at me”

  6. I can’t hum an Eagles’ song without eventually humming some Dire Straights.

  7. ok, i’m the nerd….it’s actually a flatbed ford…..but who really cares…lol
