You ever notice how every fricking song has lyrics just for you when you are sad. Last night I listened to my shuffled tunes and heard:
"Guess mine is not the first heart broken
My eyes are not the first to cry
My heart is saying don't let go"
"Don't if feel like the wind is always howl'n?
Don't it seem like there's never any light!
Once a day, don't you wanna throw the towel in?
It's easier than puttin' up a fight.
No one's there when your dreams at night get creepy!
No one cares if you grow...of if you shrink!
No one dries when your eyes get wet an' weepy!"
But it's all about perspective I guess. So, I made myself listen to more "Annie."
"When I'm stuck a day that's gray and lonely,
I just stick out my chin and grin and say,
Oh! The sun'll come out tomorrow
So ya gotta hang on 'til tomorrow come what may"
And here are the 4 more things that made me smile yesterday:
1. An email from JellyBean's Mom saying we could hang out. (THANKS!)
2. My awesome online buddies! (THANKS! THANKS!)
3. Pouring my heart out to an unsuspecting neighbor, having her pour the wine (we shared a bottle), and getting another invite to hang out. (THANKS! THANKS! THANKS!)
4. Sending this image to Alwyn and having him almost choke on his apple. Seeing this guy on Alwyn's MySpace just gives me the giggles.
