Along the lines of my previous post. I was remembering my favorite all time Opening. Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I love the whole mouse bit.
When I was younger we were not allowed to watch Monty Python. Who knows the correct reasoning (I think it was because my Mom didn't find it funny, she can dispute the reason. Why else would we get to watch Dukes of Hazard which was raunchy in its own right). I would argue that my Uncle Tom owned the movie so it couldn't be that bad.
I remember the first time I did get to see this movie was on a Saturday and no one was home but me. How clandestine! I immediately fell in love.
Sorry about the video quality it is the only one with all of the credits and the first scene. Oh Coconuts.

Yesterday was one of those days. You know the kind you feel like a two yr old and can't do anything right.
On the drive home the Ipod shuffled to this song. I no longer feel so sorry for myself. When this album came out my family had just moved from Colorado to Utah. We were living in a shared rental meaning all the families that were transfered were sharing while they waited for homes to be built etc. My family was relegated to the basement. It was miserable. I shared the living room/kitchenette/bedroom with my brother and two sisters. It was not pleasant for any of us.
I would lay in bed with my walkman and listen to my cassette tapes (yes I am that old).
REM was on heavy rotation at that time and I loved this song.
This memory has reminded me that I have come far and even though I am feeling low, I don't have to share my room any more.

Me: Which candy is your favorite?
N: I like all candy.
Me: Oh Ok
N: Actually the sour ducks were really good. I think I like them best. Ooh and the chocolate. Only the small chocolate though.
Me: Why only the small chocolate?
N: Well because you can pop it in your mouth.
N: You know eat it all at once.
Me: Oh I see
N: I got a long chocolate, it's really big. I don't like that one because you can't pop it in your mouth.
Me: But it is more chocolate, so it is better.
N: No it is not because you can't pop it. So I am not going to eat it.
Me: WHAT? Send it to me then
N: Ok, I will
Note to Steph and Brian, don't waste big chocolate on Noah. Oh and I am waiting for the the big chocolate to be sent to me.

As I sit here at work with nothing to do today because most of my clients in Latin America take this day off, it is Saturday in the Far East and late in Europe. I have cleaned off my desk, purused many a blog online, read the news and am about to crack open my book. So this is what I am getting paid to do today.
I will play a little Vampire Weekend on my Ipod and watch the clock crawl for the next two hours.
I really wish I was really busy right about now....oh the phone is ringing...I have never been so excited.

The A Gril just returned home from a business trip to Germany. It is kind of ironic that she gets to go to cool places and works for an online Sheet Music company and I am in the International Department for my company and get to travel to exotic eastern Idaho. (no offense to those who choose to live there).
