*half of what i say is meaningless...

...but i say it just to reach you*  -beatles

isn't that a gorgeous song?  if i liked the name julia it'd be a sure bet for a baby name but...eh.  i love the song though.  i like to think everyone has a song that fits their name.  i think i got pretty lucky with s & g's for emily, whenever i may find her.  and i've always thought of naming a girl elise just because of the cure song a letter to elise.  only the cover by further seems forever.  i could listen to that song over and over.

do you have a name song?  think about it and discuss  :)

last week i bought the white album and sgt peppers.  i thought it high-time for a re-education of sorts.  back to the music that i loved as a child and now more than ever.  i can do nothing to not tear up every time i hear i will.  one of those i should have played it at my wedding songs.  i've got a lot of italics going on today, don't i??  yowzers.

i seem to be on a bit of a shopping kick lately.  i don't like it.  i mean, i like shopping.  but.  not all at once.  it just seems there are these periods of time when i realize i need (need!) all sorts of things.  but do i?  see, today, i say yes.  two weeks from now, i may have more restraint.  ugh.  i almost bought two pairs of my favorite steve madden flats from dsw.  i just couldn't pull the trigger on 80$ worth of shoes.  even though i'd be replacing a pair that is falling apart.  and another pair that never fit right because it was a sister-brand.  see?  i talk myself in.  i talk myself out.

an.y.who.

i'm trying to get through this longest of work days.  and is it only tuesday??  impossible...  maybe after work i'll take our watches in to get new batteries.  so i can wear a watch again.  for the first time in over a year.  or about a year.  that's a long time to slack off on getting a new battery.  and it would help me be less stressed if ever i want to immediately know the time.  which happens.  is it five yet?  oy.

It's now Wednesday, which means we're halfway through the work week! WOOT :).

I love shopping, when I'm in the mood. Other times I despise it, although I'm really needing some new spring attire!

Hope you have a great rest of the week!

I kinda love Leonard Cohen's "Suzanne"... Except for that long middle about Jesus ;)

And I haven't worn a watch since I came to Paris the first time in 2000. I set it to Paris time, then never changed it back when I left. Pretty soon, I got tired of doing the math and put it in a drawer.
