Sleepy Kitty 

I took this stupid Facebook quiz one time about which character from The Big Bang Theory I was most like… not something I usually do because those stupid quizzes are one of the main ways your Facebook accounts get hacked, if you didn’t already know.

Anyway, this quiz, surprisingly, at the time, pegged me as Sheldon.

Wait? What?

I mean, I knew I wasn’t Penny… maybe one of the other ladies from the show and/or Raj (except for the cooking thing).. but Sheldon?

It’s been a few weeks, at least, since I took that test and I’ve watched a couple TBBT throwback episodes since then and I can’t help but thinking, Sheldon and I may be more similar that I want to admit.

I don’t at all consent to the idea that my IQ and analytical skills are up in the same genius level category as Sheldon Cooper… but, I, uhm, see now, some other striking similarities.

1. The Spot – Although I won’t, intentionally, stand over you, making you uncomfortable, and repeat “You’re in my spot.” until you move… I’ve been told that I look very uncomfortable  when I don’t get to sit in one of my two spots in my living room and I most definitely FEEL uncomfortable if I’m not in one of them… but I will, try, to tolerate it for guests.

Oh, and after your 3rd visit to my house, you are no longer a guest… get your own drink, help yourself to food, do your laundry, and don’t sit in both my spots.

And yes, that’s the other difference, I have a new sofa, so both ends are still firm yet comfortable and away from the drafty windows… so TWO spots.

2. The Logical Mind – Again, not claiming to be a genius, but I chose computer programming for a reason… it was challenging yet something I was very good at, my brain kind of thinks in zeros and ones – either it is or it isn’t,  and I completely believe that there is an explaination, and a solution, for every possible problem. It just depends on whether the programmer wants to sink the required time in for the solution.

Of course, there are ways of making it worth her while… hint, hint…

And,  no, I’m not going to solve the mysteries of the universe using theoretical physics like Sheldon probably will… but my brain thinks like a computer, not fully capable of understanding social norms and definitely not able to make sense of them. It’s either right or it’s wrong. It’s either fair or it’s not.

Yes, I know shades of gray exist with human beings, but people are so much more complex than computers, which, again, boil it all down to zeros and ones. Every. Last. Thing.

3. The Social Awkwardness – Sheldon has this wonderfully humorous way of inserting his foot into his mouth and then looking around the room wondering what the heck everyone’s so appauled or confused by that he ponders it for days.

I don’t necessarily ponder how other people react to me anymore but unless I am in a safe place, with at least one other person I feel completely comfortable with, I suck at social interactions and at picking up on social cues… another Sheldon thing.

4. The love of the song “Soft Kitty” being sung to me when I am sick – this one speaks for itself, although I make an exception for Dani and sing it to her whenever she wants.

Happy Kitty, Sleepy Kitty, Purr, Purr, Purr”

Life A.D. (After Dani)

When I first started this blog approximately 3 years ago, I used to name all my posts by using lyrics from Dave Matthews’ songs. Since then, I have modified my post naming format a bit and I tend to use varying naming conventions these days.

Tonight though, I am reverting to my DMB lyrics love because I have a very important topic I want to write about and his lyrics fit the post perfectly.

One of my favorite songs by Dave Matthews is, SURPRISE, a song about Cunnilingus.

Dave loves to sing about loving women, especially orally… and his song “Cornbread” is a perfect example of this.

Well, a man once asked me why I would listen to Dave Matthews and not Eminem, Little Wayne, Outcast, and numerous other rap musicians that obviously sing about having sex with…

She Is My Hero

Today is Dani’s 5th birthday.

As I look back on the last 5 years, she has remained the only constant in my life and is truly my whole reason for being. I can’t even remember a time in my life that I wasn’t just waiting for her.

She is my hero. Always.

So here’s to you baby girl, from one of your favorite bands.

Ahem.

Dave (and his band) LOVE singing about sex with women. This shows in many of their lyrics.

BUT, the difference between Dave’s lyrics and some of the other musician’s lyrics that this guy mentioned is that Dave very much makes it clear how much he respects women by how he treats them in his lyrics.

These other guys?

They seem to think calling a woman a bitch and a ho is foreplay. <deep sigh>

For example:

Dave Matthews’s “Cornbread” Lyrics 

It soars inside my soul because of you
All that innocence that you inspire
You know you are as heaven intended you
Open up that lovely flower

The love inside of your head
With the love inside my head
All that we need to make love happen

Eminem’s “Shake That”Lyrics

Three to the one from the one to the three
I met a bad bitch last night in the D
Let me tell you how I made her leave with me
Conversation and Hennessey
I’ve been to the muthafuckin’ mountain top
Heard muthafuckers talk, seen and dropped
If I ain’t got a weapon I’m a pick up a rock
And when I bust yo ass I’m a continue to rock

Dave’s “Hunger For The Great Light” Lyrics

I want to be your hunger
I want to see you open wide
I want to go down for you
I want to blow your mind 

Outkast’s “Hootie Hoo” Lyrics

Follow the funk from the skunk
And the dank that is crunk in the Dungeon
It goes on and on and on, like that
Going out to the Jeeps and hoes in the ‘llac

Dave’s “Shake Me Like A Monkey” Lyrics

I like my coffee with toast and jelly
But I’d rather be licking from your back to your belly

Dr Dre’s “Bitches ain’t shit but hoes and tricks…” Lyrics

uhm… I am pretty sure that one speaks for itself.

So… do you get my point???

and… for your (AND MY) listening pleasure… yum

The Day the Doves Cried

So Prince died today.

Or the Artist formerly known as Prince.

But I’m sure you have already heard.

It seems that great musicians have been dying a lot in the last year. Lemmy, BB King, David Bowie, now Prince. There were others too… it’s just these are musicians that I have listened to for decades… since I was a child.

How awesome is it that we got to live in the age of such amazing rock legends?

Our grandchildren and children may not understand but I’m sure our grandparents and parents completely do. They have their own musical legends as well.

We spend our entire lives surrounded by music. It’s in our schools, in our doctor’s offices, on the phone while we wait for the person on the other end to pick up… shoot, it’s even in our elevators.

Music is an innate part of our lives. It calms us, lifts us up, reminds us of countless good and bad memories.

Death is just part of the cycle of life, though, and it doesn’t have to be an end by any means. Look at all the wonderful music these artists left us with. We have all of those wonderful life soundtracks to share with our future generations.

And that’s what really matters. What the people we love are left with.

And today… the doves are crying…
