( I hate) Everything about you

(I Hate) Everything About You

Every time we lie awake
After every hit we take
Every feeling that I get
But I haven’t missed you yet

Every roommate kept awake
By every sigh and scream we make
All the feelings that I get
But I still don't miss you yet

Only when I stop to think about it

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
I hate everything about you
Why do I love you

Every time we lie awake
After every hit we take
Every feeling that I get
But I haven’t missed you yet

Only when I stop to think about it

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
I hate everything about you
Why do I love you

Only when I stop to think
About you, I know
Only when you stop to think
About me, do you know

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
You hate everything about me
Why do you love me

I hate
You hate
I hate
You love me

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you

Three Days Grace videos too


Listened to One X on the way to Pompano Beach ( lawyers)
Really love this album and the lead singer Adam Gontier is HOT..
LOL
I think my fave song off this current release is still "Animal I have become"
My fave song of theirs period??? no doubt..."( I hate ) Everything about you "

Animal I Have Become


I can't escape this hell
So many times i've tried
But i'm still caged inside
Somebody get me through this nightmare
I can't control myself

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal
(This animal, this animal)

I can't escape myself
(I can't escape myself)
So many times i've lied
(So many times i've lied)
But there's still rage inside
Somebody get me through this nightmare
I can't control myself

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal

Somebody help me through this nightmare
I can't control myself
Somebody wake me from this nightmare
I can't escape this hell

(This animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal, this animal)

So what if you can see the darkest side of me?
No one will ever change this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal I have become
Help me believe it's not the real me
Somebody help me tame this animal
(This animal I have become)

Enjoy Fall out boy


As my video feed this week.
When I took lil one and friends to see them, I am not ashamed to admit I was clapping and dancing and singing along..I LOVE FOB...


If you are totally unfamiliar with them...
I advise watching "Dance Dance" first, then
"This ain't a scene"
It has a great segue..
Then "Sugar" which is one of their most popular hits..then watch the home video mocking "Sugar"..which is too funny...
The home video actually has the song playing, with the lyrics as understood by the film maker..
Enjoy

Check out Belle


This pineapple plant is huge..I wonder what she will look like when she fruits again

Can someone identify this plant for me?


It suddenly started growing in my flower bed out front..
Initially I pulled it as a weed..then noticed it was flowering so I let it grow. Its quite pretty foliage..and the flowers are a lovely red.
Anyone know what this is?

The boys

Heard these songs this morning..


Pink Floyd- Wish you were here



England Dan and John Ford Coley - Nights Are Forever (without You)

Lying in bed with the radio on
Moonlight falls like rain
Soft summer nights spent thinking of you
When will I see you again

Soft and low the music moans
I can't stop thinking about you
Thinking about you...
I didn't know it would be so strong
Waiting and wondering about you
I didn't know it would last so long
Nights are forever without you

Curtains still dance with the wind and the sky
The sun will be coming up soon
But I just can't sleep for thinking of you
Here alone with the moon

Soft and low the music moans
I can't stop thinking about you
Thinking about you...
I didn't know it would be so strong
Waiting and wondering about you
I didn't know it would last so long
Nights are forever without you
Nights are forever without you
Nights are forever without you.....


Pink Floyd- Wish you were here
So, so you think you can tell
Heaven from Hell,
Blue skys from pain.
Can you tell a green field
From a cold steel rail?
A smile from a veil?
Do you think you can tell?

And did they get you to trade
Your heros for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

How I wish, how I wish you were here.
We're just two lost souls
Swimming in a fish bowl,
Year after year,
Running over the same old ground.
What have we found?
The same old fears.
Wish you were here.

Format...

I've been dithering about it in my mind...and my final hard judgement is...it was too busy...
So for now, I'm reverting to my old format...
So back to the old format..for now..
I have however..left all the added elements..cause they are cool..
The template itself may have just been too busy..
We'll see

New Celly


With new blue tooth since the boys ate the last one...
This one is much faster than the older one, its all programmed including my usual ringtones...
Except..I need a new one for ex...
Want one that is perfect..
Any suggestions oh ye blog faithful?
Motorola V365
its nice..just for what I need anyway..and my biggest concern is ease of use and no dropped calls
Upgraded plan to enough mins to allow Lil one and me to talk to our nearest and dearest ( OK Baby??)

She won, I lost

I am simply going to sleep this week away..LOL..
all my plans went down the drain

Troubles here


Lil one suddenly told me she doesn't want to do marching band..three days before camp practice began
After over 600$ was paid, that likely is non refundable
After her schedule has been set for months for this fall
I have been simply battered..day in and out by her. Had plans to get things done today but when I got up and let the dogs out, the lawn service had been here, left a gate open and both boys were gone
I called, whistled..and finally Boyo came back..but Fally didn't. Some how they got separated..
I was TERRIFIED..and got in the car, simply frantic..driving and calling...FALLY...FALLY....
I just pulled back in my driveway, when Fally appeard...limping and trotting along...
and obviously afraid he was in BIG trouble..
I was so glad to see him, I almost collapsed..
Plus lil ones lower lip is swollen badly, we don't know why, and she has to play clarinet at the Band camp I am completely and utterly forcing her to go to..
I told her, I took a week off from work for this, I am carpooling with two other families, and she will NOT be allowed to ditch camp..
I don't care at this second what she decides after friday, but she WILL go to camp.
The money is likely a lost cause at this point, but I have no control over that.
I need to go to a happy place right now..lol...Where??? ONLY god knows...
This is my backyard one gorgeous morning

Bless George Bailey




God...

Oh, God...

Dear Father in Heaven,

I'm not a praying man, but
if you're up there,

and you can hear me,
show me the way.


I'm at the end of my rope.
I...


Show me the way, God.

The above is from the original script of the movie

I will always remember watching this movie with my Dad..and how at the emotional parts, he sat and cried with me..
He was already sick at the time, so more prone to emotions. But, the first time we sat and watched the movie Its a wonderful life, we laughed and cried together.
I'll never forget it.
I'll also never forget the lesson...because
You see, George, you really had a wonderful life

It is always darkest before the dawn.......

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

I know I put this on my blog a long while back, but as I sat here this early early morning looking out onto the sunrise over the lake...the poem surged into my mind again.
This too shall pass..
Robert Frost..Nothing gold can stay
