"Fine Again"

It seems like every day’s the same
and I’m left to discover on my own
It seems like everything is gray
and there’s no color to behold
They say it’s over and I’m fine again, yeah
Try to stay sober feels like I’m dying here

And I am aware now of how
everything’s gonna be fine one day
Too late, I’m in hell I am prepared now,
seems everyone’s gonna be fine
One day too late, just as well

I feel the dream in me expire
and there’s no one left to blame it on
I hear you label me a liar
‘cause I can’t seem to get this through
You say it’s over, I can sigh again, yeah
Why try to stay sober when I’m dying here

And I am aware now of how
everything’s gonna be fine one day
Too late, I’m in hell
I am prepared now,
seems everyone’s gonna be fine
One day too late; just as well

And I’m not scared now.
I must assure you,
you’re never gonna get away
And I’m not scared now.
And I’m not scared now. No…

I am aware now of how
everything’s gonna be fine one day
Too late, I’m in hell
I am prepared now
seems everyone’s gonna be fine
One day too late, just as well
I am prepared now,
seems everything’s gonna be fine for me
For me; for myself.
For me, for me, for myself
For me, for me, for myself

I like that picture!

I'm brewing some tea. Tired today. Almost too many parties at this time of year....

At least it snowed last night, although it's only a skiff. I'm starting to wonder if we're going to have a *gasp* green Christmas here- unheard of!

I like the talking heads song, too. Brewing some tea myself; still off hte coffee kick since detoxing during my sick-time last week.

Kids are fighting/playing through the house, playing dress up. Sky is heavy today! I wonder if it might snow!

Wouldn't that be odd, sparklevelvet, for me to have a white christmas and you a green one!

Christmas music from the classical station sounds nice. I have no motivation to do anything today, but I have to make it to hte post office (the book!). Will light a candle in solitude tonight to mark the solstice. Yay for the coming back of hte light!!!!!!!!!

When I FINALLY get off my ass and make my mix CD for the drive to the playa, it's opening with Road to Nowhere.

Of course, this is the third year in a row I've talked about making the damn mix. Anybody wanna take bets on whether or not I do it?

Good morning. Hot chocolate. Nice morning, but cold.... Brrrr....

Hey Giggles, I like the avatar. Reminds me of Brian Froud's work.
My daughter got me a set of Froud's Elves & Faeries tarot cards
for Christmas this year with one of his books too. Super cool !!
(Yeah, we're already sneaking into into our presents.) :P

ding ding ding! Exactly so, it is Mr. Froud's (thank you for letting me borrow it for a minute, Mr. Froud). His work speaks to me.

Do you know, I was compelled to go out yesterday and stock up on hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps, for real? Mmmmm, pretty tasty and toasty.

More chai please. Very tired today. Went to solstice party last night and made it until 2am, not too bad on no afternoon nap. I wish I could have stayed longer, the music and people were great. It was in an old church in the woods, so pretty, and it was snowing.

Happy holidays to all. Santa comes tonight for all the little children. Ya' know, I was looking at my daughter sleeping this morning. And the thought occurred to me that kids shouldn't be able to grow up as fast as they do. Before I left for work, I kissed her forehead, remembering all the past Christmas-es (sp?)...especially the one when she was 3 and the Christmas tree fell over on top of her. **giggles** :)

I'll help myself to the chai. Good morning.

Mmm...vanilla chai.

I've got some ginger snaps the hubby brought home from work, too - they're lovely. Care for some?
