Manilow on My Mind

I woke up with the song "I Write the Songs" playing in my head and I can't get rid of it. Mental breakdown? Possibly...

Remember the Energizer bunny all happy with his sunglasses and drum, and how sad it is when he runs out of energy and falls over? That's E - he was face down, passed out completely asleep when I got home from the movies last night at 9:45 pm. I couldn't believe it - he's normally going and going and going - Ohmigod - he stopped!!!

I am feeling better and better each day - recovering from those two Navy Seal boot camp weekends. I also got another call from someone looking for some marketing freelance writing. I can't tell you how happy that makes me, particularly because it's for the kind of work I like doing : )

And although I haven't technically 'written' any bits of my book, I've been thinking through some rough spots. Soon it will spill onto paper.

Office cleanup status: messy. Papers from three jobs spread all over mixed with various bills, post-its and hot pink page flags. I bought more oganizers yesterday, but they don't seem to be magically doing the trick. I might have to break down and sort through this crap soon.

Here. This should get "I Write The Songs" out of your head...

Her name was Lola,
she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair
and a dress cut down to there
She would merengue
and do the cha-cha
And while she tried to be a star,
Tony always tended bar
Across a crowded floor,
they worked from 8 till 4
They were young and they had each other
Who could ask for more?

Hope that helped.

thanks a lot!
actually a Police song has been in my head lately: Canary in a Coal Mine. I hope there's not a not-so-subtle message in there.
