Night rant

Is anyone else out there like me and forgets their password every time they want to sign in?  I think I am too old for this cybo-techno stuff.

Anyway, here I am again, supposedly making toast to fill up on so I can go back to sleep, but, hey, why not just feed the insomnia bug some more?

Not much I can say really, except to observe that there are times when one feels a bit more "unhinged" than others, and I'm right there right now.

Maybe it will be better in the morning.  Time can only tell.

There are many songs and other things that would sum this up.  Ummmmm......

Dave Dobbyn "Loyal" would be apposite (did I spell that right?) Did I get the right word?

What else?  I need toast to help me think.

Film title?  "Love and other catastrophes" (Aussie indie film - v.good - I think Frances O'Connor was in it prior to her turn as Fanny Price in the Rozema production of Mansfield Park)

...the toast is good....

....burgen with butter and honey....

REM [losing my] religion.

A misquoted line from Bridget Jones' Diary (tha movie) - something like "why is it that when one part of your life starts going well, another falls spectacularly apart?"

An exaggeration, I hope.

The Whitlams "...yeah and all my friends are f*&k-ups, but they're fun to have around...."

Well, not all of them are, but the most fun ones are - I can relate.

Cheesy, but true, Elton John "Sad songs say so much"

Best advice of the week: CTFM - calm down.....

Maybe someone can tell me how to do a singing post, then you could have the sound effects.  No I don't mean me, I mean a soundbite from somebody really amazing, like.....

Adam Lambert
Natalie Merchant
Over the Rhine


NOT Bob, or Kris, or Johnny C (now I know I'll be unpopular on at least 2 out of 3 of those, but hey, I'm entitled to my opinion that in spite of their varying levels of fame, NONE of them can sing!!!!) Well, OK, maybe the last one can, but I still don't like him much.  Ummm, not even sure about that.  Sad old git though.

Time to retire once more.

Robert Scott (The Bats, or maybe this one is the Magicheads) "O Lord grant me sleep tonight yeah, I don't wanna lie here long...."


PS Kiwi music is waaaaayyyy underrated. Get into some more of it.

PPS  SJD Dayglo Spectres "Oh IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII..... I don't caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaare, if I lose my waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay...."

Only problem is, I do actually.

Yes, I am too serious.  Help me Rhonda, help help me Rhonda.... (who IS Rhonda, by the way?)

Definitely time to stop.

I'm going, really I am....
