Mindfill

A landfill is a dumping ground for random objects and things. I figure that this blog is going to serve as a dumping ground for my random thoughts - therefore, it's a mindfill.

Song o' the Moment

Over at another bulletin board where I frequently post, I do a thing called the "Song o' the Week." Basically, I post the lyrics to whatever song strikes my fancy at that time. I'm a big music person (hence the multiple posts on the topic in this blog) and most of the time when I'm sitting at my computer I have my MP3 library on shuffle. So usually the songs I post come from that collection. I decided to bring my Song o' the Week over here for today because the song I posted this week has struck a chord (no pun intended...ok, maybe it was) with me. It could probably serve as my theme song at the moment. It's a song called "I'm Waiting for My Real Life to Begin" by Colin Hay. It came from the TV series "Scrubs." I'm a huge fan of the show and I've watched it since it came on the air 6 seasons ago. Now, it's on every day in syndication and I try to catch it whenever I can. Anyway, the song is not only a great song, but it comes from a great episode. So without further ado...

"Waiting For My Real Life to Begin" by Colin Hay

Any minute now my ship is coming in
I'll keep checking the horizon
And I'll stand on the bow
And feel the waves come crashing
Come crashing down, down, down on me

And you said,"Be still, my love
Open up your heart
Let the light shine in"
Don't you understand?
I already have a plan
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

When I awoke today suddenly nothing happened
But in my dreams I slew the dragon
And down this beaten path
And up this cobbled lane
I'm walking in my own footsteps once again

And you say,"Just be here now
Forget about the past
Your mask is wearing thin"
Let me throw one more dice
I know that I can win
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

Any minute now my ship is coming in
I'll keep checking the horizon
And I'll check my machine
There's sure to be that call
It's gonna happen soon, soon, oh so very soon
It's just that times are lean

And you say,"Be still, my love
Open up your heart
Let the light shine in"
Don't you understand?
I already have a plan
I'm waiting for my real life to begin

Hey heyeyeyeyey
Hey yeeeeeee
Hey heyeyeyeyey
Eeh eeh eeh eeh eh x5

On a clear day
I can see, see for a long way

On a clear day
I can see, see a very long way

    Hi there! I looked for you at church on Christmas Eve, but didn't see you there. If you were there, I was one of the people with the noisy kids....
    Hope you had a great holiday with the family.
    I don't know Trent's address, but if you read this Trent, Congrats!
    Susan
