Winter Visitors!

The day has been a bit of a bust, writing-wise. I didn’t really regain the use of my brain until the day was pretty much gone, and then I decided to watch Cocteau’s film, Orphée. (Which was just so good — I had forgotten most of it. Tomorrow, I’m thinking I’m going to watch Wim Wenders’ Wings of Desire — another video that I forgot I owned!!)

Anyway, the day is basically over. I think I’m going to watch a rerun of Perry Mason now and do yoga. (I know — all these old things, and I said I was going to watch new stuff!!)

I have several interesting winter visitors right now. Two of whom — a ladybug who’s living around the window frame at the top of the stairs, and a beetle living down in the kitchen — are currently hiding. That, or they’re camera shy because I can’t find them in their usual spots right now. Anyway, here are two brand new visitors: A new spider in my bedroom, and a shield bug living behind one of the pictures in the hall at the top of the stairs:

This is another spider living in my bedroom — along with his shadow — but he’s not new. He’s been living on my ceiling since the summertime.

As you can see, I don’t kill bugs, so that could temper any desire you might have to come visit. If it’s nice weather, I escort the various bugs to the great outdoors. But in winter, well, we’re all inside for the duration…

Okay, well, I leave you with a song I was thinking about earlier for the first time in quite a number of years, and so I played it while making my dinner! (“So Alive” by Love & Rockets.) It sounded amazing, streaming on the iPad with the new speakers!! (I don’t know if it will sound equally amazing for you here because I don’t know what kind of speakers you have; I only know that it seriously pales in comparison on my laptop, plus this is just YouTube. I actually own the MP3 and it sounds lots better.)

All righty. Thanks for visiting, gang. I’m hoping that I’ll awaken tomorrow with a fully functioning brain!! Have a great night, wherever you are in the world. I love you guys. See ya.

“So Alive”

I don’t know what color your eyes are, baby
But your hair is long and brown
Your legs are strong, and you’re so, so long
And you don’t come from this town

My head is full of magic, baby
And I can’t share this with you
Feel I’m on a cross again, lately
But there’s nothing to do with you

I’m alive, so alive
I’m alive, so alive

Your strut makes me crazy
Makes me see you more clearly
Oh, baby, now I can see you
Wish I could stop
Switch off the clock
Make it all happen for you

I’m alive, so alive
I’m alive, so alive

I don’t know what color your eyes are, baby
But your hair is long and brown
Your legs are strong, and you’re so, so long
And you don’t come from this town

My head is full of magic, baby
And I gotta share this with you
I feel I’m on top again, baby
That’s got everything to do with you

I’m alive, so alive
I’m alive, so alive
