So I'm sitting at a bar in Guadalajara
Then I met an Englishman
"Oh" he said
"Won't you walk up and down my spine,
It makes me feel strangely alive."
I said "In these shoes?
I hear this song on the radio every now and then...it's by Kirsty MacColl if you wanna check it out...

Every year when I get back from India, I notice that I have picked up more words that I inject permanently into my vocabulary. "Acha" and "beta" (ok, or yes, and dear one), "Yaar" for friend, and "chalo!", the standard expression for getting rid of street urchins, or just saying to your friends, "Chalo!", Let's go!
These words are stuck with me forever, and I use them a lot.
OK so now even you can already make some sentences in Hinglish.
Why is that? A Canadian expression collected in India, and permanently adhered to my brain?
It's a beautiful day, eh?
There sure were a lot of people at the market today, eh?
Madam, I miss you terribly, but I cannot stop saying EH! This is all your fault, you know. Is there a cure for this? I realize that having a Canadian mother isn't going to help, the EHing is in my blood afterall.
Have a lovely Tuesday everyone, EH?
Have a great Monday!
In other news, I spent the weekend floating above my trampoline. I am down now, thank you.

Happy HNT everyone!

I know what you're thinking....Tori...Rufus...Tori...Rufus...sheesh! That's right...that's exactly right. They both have new releases and I just can't listen to anything else.
In other news! Had a very busy weekend selling my clothing at the bazaar, and did quite well. I am pleased but exhausted. And today after school, Little Rita and I are going shoe shopping because this morning I noticed my child stuffing her feet into too small shoes. It was kind of cute, and kind of sad at the same time..my little girl is growing up, and her feet are becoming much too close to my shoe size. Stay away from my Chacos, Little Rita, and your life will be spared.
See you around!

I've included the lyrics to Carbon so that you can sing along! Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend and so on in case I don't get back here before you do...and BTW all you lurkers...this is the only time i'm ever gonna say this...ya see that down there? over 21,000 hits, so I know you're out there!
Found her at the
End of a chain
Time to race she said
Race the downhill
Behind crystaline irises
Loons can dive
Where the world bleeds white
Just keep your eyes on her
Keep don't look away
Keep your eyes on her horizon
A gunner's view
Black and blue
Shred in ribbons
Blow by blow
Her mind cut
Just keep your eyes on her
Keep don't look away
Keep your eyes on her horizon
Get me neil on the line
No I can't hold
Have him read
Snow glass apples
Where nothing is what it seems
Little sis you must crack this
He says to me
You must go in again
Only wants to be unmade
Blade to ice
It's double diamond time
And keep your eyes on her...
On her eyes
On her horizon

watching her dance in the water
the moonlight reflecting from her green hair
her lavender skin he longed to touch
and those beautiful horns, so...
she felt him there
tonight he jumps
and slides into molten lava
she is alone again
I am becoming so efficient here at susies the boss! Today I have combined my 55
with a little peek at a new Tori tune, and a glance at one of the lastest things sweeping the cyberworld. Now, I dont know about you, but I have never heard of this World of Warcraft stuff until I went looking on Youtube for some new Tori.
If you watched the video just now, you know what I am talking about!
Personally, I would love to be a 7 foot tall woman, with arms that hang down to my knees and end in giant fuzzy paws, 2 foot long horns sticking outa my green hair, which sorta blends in there with my maximus unibrow, coupled with a 15 inch waist, and big round boobs and buns like hers, wouldn't you?
Heh! Now I would really be interested in that World of Warcraft if it involved hacking down wilderness, homesteading, sewing or even building stuff with power tools, but I just dont wanna play war ok? Cant they make a girlie version of this game where we just get to look cool in our orange bikinis while refinishing the parquet?
Please, if you are into this World of Warcraft thing..tell me, what have I been missing?
Happy Weekend everyone and thanks for playing along with us! If you need to know more about Flash Fiction Friday, go here.

Now, I searched YouTube for a video from her new stuff, but as its just come out, there's not much available yet. Well that got me searching, and what I did find are the most precious clips of an elementary school choir doing Tori song! The quality is crap, but I assure you, if you are even a little bit of a Tori fan, you will be moved by these beautiful children, and not bothered at all by the lame recording.
And I for one, am totally stoked that this music teacher has found a way to bring Tori's genius to his students. There was some rewriting of lyrics, of course, we can't have the kids singing..."I killed a man T, Ive got to stay hidden in this Abbey...", can we? LOL
I will write about the new Tori stuff later, which is by the way, absolutely delicious, but in the meanwhile...enjoy this!
NOT THE RED BARON
If you played Musical Monday today, get over there and tell that lazy arse WDKY, that just because he's in the L word, doesn't mean he can't still play with us, right?
In other news, Little Rita and I had a henna party last night.....now, you have all seen my red-ish hair, how it looks with henna and all, but LR is a blonde! Woweeeee! (Pics tomorrow, ok?)Also, yesterday was Mothers Day & Mr Ratburns birthday..who by the way, shares the same bday as Thing Two. Here are some pics we took at the beach yesterday...I know I am dressed like a dork, it was fucking freezing out there, ok? LOL Enjoy!

This weeks tasty selection for Musical Monday is by Bjork, Venus As A Boy. I know you are all dying to know why I picked this song, especially you, Cathy. This song is a selection from Bjorks "Debut" album, which happens to be one of Rufus' all time favorite albums ever. (I can still call em albums, can't I?)
Venus As A Boy, sigh....I hope you will enjoy it.
In other news, I am back down to my regular readership of 5 faithful fans. Thank you for your dedication! LOL....like many bloggers before me, it seems I now have a life and not so much time to play....check out my online store if'n ya want to, to see what I've been up to lately. No goofin' off, honest!
My Little Rita is off to a week at outdoor nature camp with her entire 5th grade class, where they will sing hike camp explore eat run play laugh...all at the ocean! Have great time, Little Rita, I know I will! :D
