Another "this and that" type of post...

Listening to: “C is for cookie” - by Cookie Monster
Yes, I actually downloaded a sesame street song, and I’m listening to it at work. It’s part of a weird-ass compilation cd. Go ahead. Call me crazy. I don’t care…
Cookie Monster is my favorite Sesame Street character. (Also a nickname I acquired in college, for my obsession with the delectable genius-invention we call the “cookie”).

Eating: nothing (wish I had some cookies though)

Drinking: nothing

Feeling: Groovy (that’s your “Simon and Garfunkel” reference for the day)

I Still want to be: an astronaut
Yes, I am aware of the new programs that allow “common” folk to go out into space/orbit, however they cost and arm and a leg… And I ain’t goin’ into space as no amputee!

Most under-rated singer: Damien Rice.
This man is amazing. Listen to “Blower’s daughter” (no, it’s not dirty). Such a simple song. So beautiful. He sings it in such a way... I swear...

Here are the lyrics:

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes...

And so it is
Just like you said it should be
We'll both forget the breeze
Most of the time
And so it is
The colder water
The blower's daughter
The pupil in denial

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes...

Did I say that I loathe you?
Did I say that I want to
Leave it all behind?

I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind...
My mind...my mind...
'Til I find somebody new

And I will conclude with the Haiku of the day: The Red Bull Haiku

Faithful Crimson Tor
For you boost me without fail
Now, Sugarfree---Weeeeeee!

Comments:
personally, i prefer the muppets....hehehe those dudes crack me up.

i don't think damien's that under-rated...he's received a lot of critical, and recently public, acclaim in the uk. ok, so the uk isn't the centre of the universe, so u could be right. i really dig volcano and cannonball (yes, the obvious choices, i know), and isn't lisa hannigan's voice something else?

heheh he even looks a bit like a good friend of mine
 
coookie monster coooookie monster, cooookie monster :) It means nothing written, but if you heard me say it you would relate miss crazy :P
