My Father...the enabler...

My cousin Annette is in for the night from Florida (actually, Indy...where she is staying this week).

Annette: Yeah, last night the Asti was flowing.
Dad: Well, we still have a bottle of Arbor Mist here.
Annette: Gail would like that.
Dad (to me): You can open it, if you'd like.
Me: Nah, that's alright.
Dad: Go ahead.
Annette: I'll have a glass if you have a glass.
Dad: Be a good host and go pour some drinks.

So me, being the good, under-aged hostess, pours 3 glasses of Strawberry White Zinfandel for Myself, Annette, and my sister Fayanne, and a glass of Kendall-Jackson for my father. *sigh* We are a family of lushes.

Because this song has been stuck in my head...and it's incredible...

Round Here by Counting Crows

Step out the front door like a ghost
into the fog where no one notices
the contrast of white on white.
And in between the moon and you
the angels get a better view
of the crumbling difference between wrong and right.

I walk in the air between the rain,
through myself and back again.
I don't know
Maria says she's dying.
Through thedoor, I hear her crying
I don't know

Round here we always stand up straight
Round here something radiates

Maria came from Nashville with a suitcase in her hand
She said she'd like to meet a boy who looks like Elvis
She walks along the edge of where the ocean meets the land
Just like she's walking on a wire in the circus
She parks her car outside of my house,
takes her clothes off,
Says she's close to understanding Jesus
She knows she's more that just a little misunderstood
She has trouble acting normal when she's nervous

Round here we're carving out our names
Round here we all look the same
Round here we talk just like lions
But we sacrifice like lambs
Round here she's slipping through my hands

Sleeping children got to run like the wind
Out of the lightning dream
Mama's little baby better get herself in
Out of the lightning

She says, "It's only in my head."
She says, "Shhh....I know it's only in my head."

But the girl on the car in the parking lot
says: "Man, you should try to take a shot
Can't you see my walls are crumbling."

Then she looks up at the building
and says she's thinking of jumping.
She says she's tired of life;
she must be tired of something.

Round here she's always on my mind
Round here I got lots of time
Round here we're never sent to bed early
Nobody makes us wait
Round here we stay up very very late

Bored, bored, bored, bored, bored, bored, bored, bored (to Meom Mix theme)

I'm bored. So now I'm going to ramble...soon, I may start spamming.

I today. Yay Winter Break. But I'm kind of tired. And I've been up less than 12 hours. *sigh* Quite the tough life. :o)

Well, I did "clean" my room a bit. Not much. I made room for my new DVD rack from Santa (which is completely filled, and not including box sets). Oh well. I guess I have too many.

And I arranged my bobble head dolls. That's all I did all day was bobble heads and DVDs. *sighs* Quite the life indeed.

Tonight was okay. Family. I got enough of that last night, thankyouverymuch. But whatever. I'm so stuffed from pizza dinner and dessert. We are German, which means we like to eat. Especially sweets. And we always have to have dessert after meals. Thanksgiving and Christmas dessert buffets are the same size as the food ones. So, of course, you feel *huge* after every meal. Blah.

Don't know what I'm going to do tomorrow. I was considering a trip to Best Buy...just so I'm not at home all day. But I don't know what to get. I have a list of CDs...but I think I'll wait on those. And I don't think I want to deal with post-Christmas crowds anyway.

Okay. Yes. Going now...maybe to bed. Maybe to watch a movie. Maybe to download songs. *shrugs* The night is young....and so am I.
