Post No. 69 Pouring Salt on My Wounds

So, I get to work Friday morning, bright and early, ready to tackle the day and put my Duke Blue Devils' NCAA loss to Villanova behind me. What do I find on my desk, but this dig by my friend and colleague Jim... (So many Duke Haters out there... They don't get the beauty of their style of play, characterized by intensity, selflessness, determination, skill, sacrifice, and mindfulness...) I burst out laughing when I saw this! It still makes me smile when I look at it, because it was quite clever. HOWEVER, it's on now! For Sure! Wait til your Boston Red Sox go down, my friend... Just you wait... ;)

Post No. 66 Light

Look up, I look up at night, Planets are moving at the speed of light. Climb up, up in the trees, every chance that you get,is a chance you seize. How long am I gonna stand, with my head stuck under the sand? I'll start before I can stop, before I see things the right way up. All that noise, and all that sound, All those places I got found. And birds go flying at the speed of sound, to show you how it all began. Birds came flying from the underground, if you could see it then you'd understand? ~ Coldplay (Speed of Sound)

Post No. 65 Daily Grind...

The world is a vampire, sent to drain Secret destroyers, hold you up to the flames And what do I get, for my pain? Betrayed desires, and a piece of the game Even though I know - I suppose I'll show All my cool and cold - like old job Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage Then someone will say what is lost can never be saved Despite all my rage I am still just a rat in a cage Now I'm naked, nothing but an animal But can you fake it, for just one more show? And what do you want? I want to change And what have you got, when you feel the same? ~ Smashing Pumpkins (Rat in a Cage)

Post No. 64 All the Lonely People

Ah, look at all the lonely people Ah, look at all the lonely people Elanor Rigby, picks up the rice in the church where a wedding has been Lives in a dream Waits at the window, wearing the face that she keeps in a jar by the door Who is it for All the lonely people Where do they all come from? All the lonely people Where do they all belong? ~ The Beattles - Elanor Rigby

Post No. 63 Glass House

Once again, I'm in trouble with my only friend
She is papering the window panes
She is putting on a smile
Living in a glass house
Once again, packed like frozen food and battery hens
Think of all the starving millions
Don't talk politics and don't throw stones
Your royal highnesses
Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat
Well of course I'd like to stay and chew the fat
Well of course I'd like to sit around and chat
But someone's listening in...
~ Radiohead - Life in a Glass House
