rainy day thoughts

1.  if you need a rainy day playlist, check out mine. (why did it take me so long to learn about jeremy messermith? if i had learned about him back in MN, than i could’ve gone to his concerts.  ah, life!)

2. it’s BACK.  yes, radiant readers, the crazy tyra is back and hosting a brand new cycle of ANTM!  yes.  i love this show.  it’s a guilty pleasure of mine.  a REALLY guilty pleasure.  but i just love it. 
last cycle was probably my favorite, but just because my favorite girl FINALLY won. * spoiler alert*  yes, nicole fox won.  isn’t she stunning (pic to the right)?  well, this cycle is getting a little boring. i don’t really know if i really like any of the girls… tyra is just as crazy as ever, though.  somethings never change, and i take comfort in that.  still, i hope these girls step it up.  honestly.  oh, and i am so over the drama!  last cycle there was very little drama, but this cycle, holy cow!  they just let it all go.

3.  i like the sound of rain on my windows.  it’s very peaceful.

well, that’s all for now.

kathy’s song
“And from the shelter of my mind
Through the window of my eyes
I gaze beyond the rain-drenched streets
To England where my heart lies

My mind’s distracted and diffused
My thoughts are many miles away
They lie with you when you’re alseep
And kiss you when you start your day”

some days i just feel like i’m stuck.  today, i feel like that.  i don’t like this feeling.  it’s uncomfortable.  perhaps time is being weird.  it’s being too slow but at the same time too fast.  i’m not in control… and i hate that feeling.  not like i’m a control freak.  i just like controlling myself… and i can’t do that right now.  maybe all i need is a good night’s sleep.

every few days, i’m going to post a simon and garfunkel song- just because i want to.  i will include the music video (or a link to it) as well a link to the lyrics.

to start this off:
i adore simon and garfunkel.  they have such wonderful lyrics and such calming tunes.  if you want to get a gift for a good friends, get (or make) them a compilation of simon and garfunkel. like this song: Old Friends.

“Can you imagine us years from today,
Sharing a parkbench quietly
How terribly strange to be seventy”

bored? want to solve world hunger?  want to improve your knowledge of vocabulary, art, a language, etc?  then maybe you should head on over to free rice.  it’s a really amusing website that will donate rice while you play games.  it’s really simple.  just go check it out.  also, look here for FAQs to find out what you’re doing… it’s really fun.  so far, i donated 4030 4100 grains of rice, just by looking at paintings and choosing the correct artist.  i learn and save people! win win!

seriously.  check it out.
