In case you cared, MONSTER HUGS is available for purchasing:
Here is the LINK.
I have only made one, so hurry while supply lasts.
The next one, which is not yet listed but will be in the next week or so (or more if I get busy or lazy) will be this:
This one was a ginormous pain in the neck to make, because there was SO MUCH background, brown stitching. I'm not 100% thrilled with it, but I'm not making another one. No way, no how. I might make another MONSTER HUGS, but not this one. Unless someone offers me a bazillion dollars.
Anyway. I'm taking most of today off from this project in order to rest my hands. Later this evening I might start on the next mini. Stay tuned!
(Also, in case you forgot, any money I make from selling these minis, or the Xanga Ornament (LINK) will go directly toward the Save Xanga fund!)
In other non-exciting news, I did not go to work today. I did not sleep fabulously last night, so it was good that I have the day off.
Took the cat to the vet for his distemper shot and a regular check up. Squirt is not as much of a squirt as he was when I got him - he now weighs twelve pounds, which means he's gained two pounds in the last year! He still looks very thin and sleek, though. The vet looked him over and said everything seemed in order. I mentioned that he had the sniffles last weekend for two or three days, sneezing a lot, and the vet seemed worried, but said his lungs sounded clear and it was probably nothing to worry about.
Squirt did not much like the car (as usual) nor the shot; he meowed in complaint when the doc stabbed him, but he was otherwise quite well behaved as always. There were a number of other cats at the vet today. Other times I have been there it was mostly dogs, and there was one today, a fluff-ball of a puppy named Daisy, but all the other patients were cats.
The plan for the rest of the day is to call the car place and make an appointment (now that I am a thousand miles overdue for my ten-thousand mile service) hopefully for next weekend. Also do laundry, take a shower, maybe some more housework, and laze about in bed.
I started and finished reading my book club book last night. Did not plan to finish it in the same night, but I did. It is called The Fault in Our Stars and it was about a teenage girl who has cancer and falls in love with another teenager who has cancer. It was kind of sad because, you know, cancer, but also beautiful and life-affirming and all that jazz. And sweet. I really did like it, even though I was sobbing almost the whole time I was reading it. So, read it, but not if you don't want to cry, that's my advice.
Anyway. I'm going to be lazy for a bit more before I start the exciting and tiring task of laundry. Whee.

It'll probably be Sunday by the time I finish writing this post.
Friday was a very sneezy day for me. I took the last two pills of my prescription antihistamine (need to remember to refill it) but was still sneezing a lot. Finally I stopped sometime in mid-afternoon, but the drugs left me feeling kind of sleepy. I went to Starbucks after work and did some writing and got some caffeine, and then went home. I went to bed at a reasonable time, slightly before midnight, and then took some Benadryl and went to sleep.
I slept like a log.
It seriously felt like I was pulled underwater into a world where all I wanted to do was sleep. If you've ever taken something like NyQuil or Benadryl or anything else that causes "drowsiness," maybe you understand. I woke up at 9 AM and then fell back to sleep. I finally talked myself into getting out of bed at around 11:30, but probably could have easily slept for another 8 hours. In fact, all day today I was kind of tired. Not in the "I'm going to pass out now" sense, but in the "I'm too tired to speak" sense. Ever have that, where you're too tired to speak? Moving is okay, doing is okay, driving is okay, but speaking seems like it takes a ridiculous amount of energy. Thankfully, I didn't have to give a speech!
My right hand is tired and achy from all the cross-stitching I've done lately. So I'm not going to do any tonight.
I had a lot of dreams. I don't remember most of the details. Here are some highlights?
I was going to my book club meeting. But there were some people there that I didn't know and there were some other people missing. Then I remembered that we were supposed to be having the baby shower and that was at a different place, and then I felt like a colossal idiot for having forgotten. Also, I was hungry, like horribly hungry because I hadn't had anything to eat, and I was trying to eat some things, because there are usually some munchy snacks at the book club meetings, but this time there wasn't, there was just drinks.
There was a LOT more, but I don't remember it anymore. Oh well.
Today, I went to Marty's and at last got some new sandals, with only a little bit of a heel. They are not the most wonderful things in the world, but they're nice enough to wear to work, they fit well, and they were reasonably priced. Also, went to PetSmart, mostly because Mum was almost out of Josh's dog food, and got some other random cat treats also for Squirt. And then to AC Moore, where I (at last) found the Christmas Ornament frames that I could have sworn I got at Joann's. Well, now I know where I got them! I bought six, for now. There's an AC Moore closer to my apartment, so I'm fairly certain I could get some there as well. They also have some smaller ones, some oval ones, and some square-shaped ones, so maybe at some point I'll branch out into other shapes.
Tomorrow's plan is to do some desperately needed vacuuming, perhaps laundry, and food shopping. Also reading, since the book club meeting is Tuesday and I haven't even started the book for this month. Monday I'm off, and I have to take Squirt to the vet at ten AM. If I don't do laundry tomorrow, I'll do it on Monday, and same for the food shopping. Might also do some other random shopping. I haven't been to the mall in ages. I thought about driving out of the county tomorrow to do some random shopping, but I dunno. Oh, and definitely reading because Book Club is coming!!
Oh, right, and I have to figure out what little gift I am getting for the Baby Shower thing. Can't forget that!!
Anyway. I'm sleepy again, so I think I'll probably take some more drugs and go to bed. After I pay attention to the cat for a bit. He's getting antsy because he'd like me to stop looking at the glowing rectangle box thing and start looking at him.

Today is (at last) Friday, and that means it's (finally) time for...
This is a semi-weekly, whenever I feel like it feature I do on Fridays, in which I post a list of songs on a particular theme. Or, occasionally, just some songs I like and feel like sharing.
This week's theme is Perseverance.
Thank goodness for spell check because I apparently can't spell that word.
1. Never Surrender - Corey Hart
This is one of those songs I like when I am feeling like listening to epic power-ballads. Sure, it's not quite as epic as, say, a U2 song with Bono's screaming wails, or something, but I really like it. It's kind of cheesy, of course, because it's from the 80s and the 80s were cheesier than the Green Bay Packers fans' hats.
But there's something motivational about the lyrics
So if you're lost and on your own
you can never surrender
no one can take away your right to fight
and to never surrender
to never surrender-er!
2. Wilson Phillips - Hold On
This song is kinda sappy. And the words are cheesy. I admit it. But it sort of makes me cry when I listen to the words too closely sometimes, because it's sort of sad at the same time.
Hold on for one more day, the song says. Just one more day. And then tomorrow they will give you the same message.
Sometimes, that's what you have to do: take it one day at a time.
You can do it!
3. Old Red Eyes is Back - The Beautiful South
Old Red Eyes is back. Because he's persistent. The doctor told him if he drank another he'd be dead, but he went on drinking anyway.
I apologize for the awful dancing in this video. I'd never watched it before today. But there it is.
4. Still Fightin' It - Ben Folds
it hurts to grow up
and Everybody does
(so weird to be back here)
Let me tell you what
the years go on and
we're still fighting it
we're still fighting it
Don't give in to old age and boringness. You're only as young as you feel. <3
5. Against the Wind - Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band
Nobody seems to want this song to be embedded. I had to go through like five videos to find one.
Even when it seems like the world is against us, and we are running against the wind itself, we keep going. Or at least Bob does. We do it in different ways, fighting different things as we get older and face new challenges. But we keep fighting.
Because we will persevere.
Hey, I spelled it right, finally. I have persevered.
It seriously seems like there should be another r in there.
Well, that's all for this week.
Until next week, Xanga, my message is this:
Keep fighting whatever your demons are, whatever your problems are, whatever is trying to keep you down and hold you back. Keep fightin' it!
What songs about perseverance do you know?
What helps you to keep going?
What did you think of these songs?
Tune in next week when I present some other playlist on some other theme. Until then, have a fab weekend, folks. :)

It is raining. Again. It must be the rainy season because it has rained a lot lately.
For dinner I am having leftover Jasmine rice. And a bowl of frozen soup; lobster bisque. It is not awful, but there's a bit of spice to it that I don't like. I find that sometimes frozen dinners have a little spice to them, I guess the company things this "improves" the taste. It does not. Chicken Alfredo, for example, should not be spicy. Just sayin'.
Also, you know what goes well with jasmine rice? Dill pickles. No, I am not pregnant. I am not 1,000% certain of that, but it's highly unlikely unless something happened recently that I don't know about. Awwwwkward.
Work today was more boring than usual. There was only some stupid things to break up the monotony.
Our usual Thursday & Friday work was delayed due to some form of IT problem that prevented The System from functioning as it was supposed to. So I had to find some other things to keep me busy.
I had another email conversation with a guy I used to think was smart, but has lately become stupid. See, each morning, when necessary, I get an email about items that they can't ship because nobody put a price on them. Nobody put a price on them because the item wasn't authorized for the stores they were trying to send it. So I forwarded the email to the guy who can fix that problem, saying "Please authorize if this is correct."
His reply was to tell me the retail he wanted. So I replied. "I can't do that, it's not authorized." He ignored me.
Several hours passed and then some people in another department (Supply & Logistics) emailed him telling that there had been an error in attempting to ship the item, and could he get it fixed? He then finally sent the email to the Giggle Club asking them to authorize the item. Sigh.
This was after I had spent yesterday afternoon explaining to him that the BONUS item is supposed to be the same price as the regular sized item...especially when the box specifically says something like "20% MORE FREE." Yeah...
Head, meet desk. Oh, you're friends now? Meet again. And again.
Damn, I'm not unconscious yet.
My neighbor and I have been "bonding," by which I mean she has been attempting to engage me in conversation somewhat regularly, usually to commiserate about stupid people. I dislike this. By which I don't mean I dislike her, because I can't say that I do, but I don't trust her, and I don't trust her reputation, and I wonder if associating with people such as that might be something of a ding in my character. Not that we're best of friends, or ever will be. But I am wary of being too friendly with people.
I got paid today. :)
This weekend I will need to come up with a little gift for the baby shower/book club meeting on Tuesday. Via emails, the rest of us agreed to purchase some sort of baby carrier which will be less than $20 each for the six of us, which is awesome, and we all also agreed that we would get her something little individually. I have been such a slacker that I have not even gone on the baby registry to see what we are purchasing, nor what other little things might be suitable.
I also have not obtained or read the book. This is normal for me. I did, however, finish my last library book today, so I might just whip out my Kindle this evening and download the book club book. I thought about going to the library this evening but that didn't happen. I might stop by on my way home tomorrow night, but I'm not sure how late they're open, and I'm pretty sure they're not open on weekends in the summer. Okay, I checked the website and they are only open until 5 on Fridays in the summer, so I'll definitely download it.
I do have Monday off. So I plan to spend at least some time reading on Monday.
Also in the plans for this weekend, aside from a trip to some baby store (by which I mean a store that sells things FOR babies, not a store that SELLS babies) or some store which sells baby-related products (supermarket?), is a trip to a shoe store because my current pair of high-heeled sandals is starting to fall apart.
See, I used to have umpteen high-heeled sandals, but at some point in the recent past, I purged a few that were beloved but falling apart, or rarely worn. So now I have one pair of high-heeled sandals and one pair of not-really-really cheap flip-flops that are not nice enough (in my opinion) to wear to work. So I need to buy some new dressy sandals.
So far I looked at Kmart, which in the past was a good place to buy shoes (not this time) and DSW. I might look in Payless, but in my experience Payless sells two kinds of women's shoes: cheap, flimsy flats that will fall apart the first time it rains, and 4-5 inch heels that will break my ankles omg ow I can't even look at them. X.x
The Plan, I think, is to maybe go to Marty's, which has sensible but also nice-looking shoes, since there is a Marty's near my mothers. If THAT doesn't work out, well perhaps I'll just go barefoot all summer.
Tomorrow is Friday and I don't have a theme for a Playlist yet. I think I had one, in my head, but I have forgotten it. Ah well, this procrastination is normal as well.

It is Tuesday and I have not yet blogged about work. That is because it is very boring today. And yesterday. Today I was yawning a lot.
Today I am still not going to blog about work. I'm sure you're relieved.
The cat seems to be doing better. He was sniffling a bit, but has not sneezed since I got home about 2 hours ago. I guess he slept off his cold or whatever. :)
The weather today was mostly cloudy, warm, and humid. It was sunny-ish when I drove home from work. I came in and settled down on the bed with my laptop and maybe about 20 minutes later it started to rain, hard. The wind was blowing so that I could feel the rain on my bare feet even though I am sitting about 3-4 feet away from the window. Yipes. The cat moved away from the window, of course.
Anyway, maybe 20 minutes after that, it cleared up and the sun came out, and so I opened the window again.
I am sewing crayons in my latest project. Photos maybe tomorrow if I get more done on it.
I have been meaning to share some things that I find interesting on the Interwebs. But now I forgot what most of them were. So here's two webcomics I read that I feel like sharing:
Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire This was a looooong webcomic that was going on for ten years, but has recently concluded. The art, especially in the beginning, is not that awesome, but the story line is really good, and gets really detailed at times because it is so long. The main character is a guy who is a seer; he can see the future, either by having random, uncontrolled visions, or by using his second sight. In the beginning of the story, he's kind of a grumpy hermit who lives alone with his talking cat, Spark, and has to work as a fortune-teller in a village of stupid people. As the story goes on, though, he makes friends and goes on adventures, and we get to meet his family and explore the world he lives in. I recommend it, but only if you're willing to waste LOTS of time reading it, because it's pretty long. :)
Bug...oops, I mean Bug Martini. The name changed recently. This comic is hilarious. It makes me laugh just about every day, and as a result I am often sharing it on Facebook. If you have a few hours or days to kill and feel like laughing, read the archives.
I was listening to Pandora, and then I switched to Spotify, at work pretty regularly, but lately I've been listening to my good ol' fashioned iPod Classic. I can't decide what to listen to, so it's just on shuffle, and I've done the same with the iTunes on my computer. For the longest time I would automatically put iTunes in when I went on the computer, and somehow I fell out of the habit. Dunno why. Might have had something to do with the fact that I was often watching TV while online, and listening to music at the same time as that would be kind of confusing.
Oh, okay, here are some work-related sentences. I was two minutes late this morning, and I was still the second person to work after Frank.
I've started calling Frank Jerry Seinfeld or Mr. Seinfeld on my Wordpress blog. Should I do that here, too? Is it more humorous or confusing to refer to him as Mr. Seinfeld? I couldn't just call him Jerry, so I'd have to write "Jerry Seinfeld" every time or nothing at all. Thankfully, I don't know any real people named Jerry. Or Jerry Seinfeld himself, man, that would be confusing.
Oh, you're not missing anything on Wordpress, by the way. I've just been copy-pasting blogs from here to there. I might not bother except people are apparently reading them. Or skimming them and commenting, anyway.
Even though I have leftovers, I am being exceptionally lazy today. I had TGI Friday's potato skins, which they say you should not microwave but I have anyway. and a microwave quesadilla from Smart Ones. Spell check does not think quesadilla is a word and wants me to change it to 'quadrille,' which is a word I am fairly certain I have never used in this blog until now. Or ever, for that matter.
Seriously, spell check, 'quadrille,' but not 'quesadilla?' You need to get out more.
I don't have anything else to say. I guess I'll go sew another crayon.

The ampersand is my new favorite punctuation mark. It has, for the moment, narrowly edged out the semicolon. :)
My cat has the sniffles. He has been sneezing almost as much as I do for the past two days. Also, he sniffles. It's cute, but worrisome. He does have a vet appointment for next Monday, so I suppose I will ask about it if he's still sniffling then. :\
Yesterday I was sitting on the bed for most of the afternoon, alternating between stitching MONSTER HUGS and looking at the computer, listening to my iTunes. Squirt was curled up near the end of the bed, near the window. I think he greatly appreciates the fact that I got a new bed and there is now plenty of room for both of us without me accidentally kicking him in the middle of the night.
Anyway, I was doing whatever and I had the window open and the fan on because it was a fairly pleasant day, weather-wise. Out of the corner of my eye I saw a squirrel jump onto the windowsill - on the outside, of course.
Barely did my mind register the fact that it was there when the cat lunged. His claws hit the screen and the squirrel vanished instantly.
I didn't even think the cat was awake. So that's how good his reflexes are. Even though he has the sniffles. :)
Also, this made me feel better in general. Even though I have had Squirt for almost a year (June 24th, according to Xanga) and therefore haven't seen a mouse in over a year, I'm still somewhat paranoid about venturing into the living room or kitchen after dark. Like, if I've been in the bedroom and the lights are out in the other rooms, I feel better if the cat accompanies me.
Since I haven't actually seen a mouse, nor any evidence of mouse existences, I can't be certain that they are there. But since Squirt never has come to me with any "presents" in the form of dead rodents, I also don't have any evidence of his ability to deter mice. I tend to think, somewhat hopefully, that his scent deters any potential mice from entering, but since I haven't seen this - not that I want to see this - I can't be sure that he is deterring mice. Perhaps they are still wandering about the apartment after dark, and he is either permitting this behavior or is unaware.
But the way he quickly and effectively attacked the squirrel assured me somewhat that he might react the same way in case of a mouse appearance. So that was good. :)
Later in the evening, I went and had dinner and then decided to watch some television for the first time in a week. There was a documentary about the Zambezi river in Africa, and I settled down to watch it whilst continuing to work on MONSTER HUGS. A bit after 9, the cat, who had been in the bedroom napping off his sniffles (I hope) came into the living room, meowing urgently.
Squirt is a fairly vocal cat, generally speaking. I am unfortunately far from fluent at speaking Cat, but I understand the following: "Oh, Hi, you're home," "Play with me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11", "It is time to feed me treaaaaaats!", "please let me out of the closet, kthanks." The rest is a mystery. I'm not sure if he's saying "Hello," or asking how my day went.
Anyway, in this particular instance I wasn't quite sure what his problem was. It was more urgent than "Hello, how was your day?" and less urgent than "PLAY WITH ME!!!!111111," but I figured he probably just wanted some attention. So I followed him into the bedroom, intending to find a toy or something.
Well, turns out that this particular meow meant, "There are loud noises and bright lights outside! Should I be afraid?" because there were fireworks going on!
I don't know precisely what the occasion was, because I have no idea about community events in the town unless I happen to drive through the downtown area, which is never, and notice a sign alerting me to such. Which was how I knew about the flea market I went to a few months back. And why I didn't know about the Memorial Day parade that left me stuck in the supermarket parking lot with a bunch of frozen food.
I did notice earlier in the day that there was some sort of party/carnival thing at the school not far away. There were lots of people there and some of those blow-up bouncy houses (I dunno the technical term) and so I suppose it had something to do with that. Might have just been an end of the school year celebration, I dunno. Maybe it's some local thing, like snake-whomping day or a celebration of the first settlers in the town or some random thing.
I took a bunch with my phone; they actually came out pretty good considering that they were taken through the screen window. It was nice to watch fireworks from bed, without getting (more) mosquito bites. I am a mosquito magnet.
In other news, I have magnetized MONSTER HUGS and he is ready to be sold. I'll add him to my Etsy Store in the next day or so. I want to get started on the next Mini Magnet first.
Now to pick the next Mini. :)

There are 4 topics I wish to discuss in this post, most of which have nothing to do with one another.
1. Look at this link (LINK!). Isn't it interesting. It's a bunch of maps explaining how people in America say different words, or when they use different terms for the same thing.
The one I found most interesting was #15. How do you pronounce these words: Mary, marry, merry. Turns out, New Jersey is one of the few places wherein all three are pronounced differently! Well, I know people think we talk weird, and so now there is proof.
Also of interest is #50. What word(s) do you use to address a group of two or more people: "You guys," "You," "You all," or "Y'all." The north-south divide is clear in that picture!
2. Dreams are actually quite pleasant sometimes, when they're not traumatic. Sometimes I have nice dreams but they make me sad. A few weeks ago I had a dream about my ex. Now, we broke up almost ten years ago, and mostly I think I'm over it and don't think about the relationship at all, but sometimes dreams kind of slam into me.
Last night, though, I had a dream that I had somehow traveled (driving, I think?) to Missouri to see @randaness, which is something I'm hoping to do this summer, though I still need to work out all the details. Somehow I made it to her house and she wasn't home, but a bunch of other people were. Relatives maybe? Not sure. Anyway, they were super nice and showed me where to put my stuff and take a shower. There was apparently some sort of big get-together, maybe of family or friends, but @randaness wasn't there yet.
At some point after that, she did come home and we were very pleased to see one another, and all that stuff. And then we went for a drive in a car. I forget who was driving, but someone else was with us who I'm pretty sure was her husband. We were going to a park, maybe to have a picnic, and all I remember clearly was that there was a pond of some sort and we were very excited about being able to see ducks or geese or something, as though we don't see those often. I think it might have been raining, or maybe we were getting lost on the way? I don't have any clear memories of the conversations, just that we were laughing a lot and having fun. :)
3. I have mentioned to a few people now that I'm thinking of going to Missouri this summer. Traditionally, I take vacation the week of my birthday in mid-August, but I might change my mind and take it in July or something. The more I think about driving (as opposed to flying) the more I like the idea. Road trips are awesome!
I'm concerned about what to do about work, though. Not that I can't take off a week of work, of course, but there is a specific task I have to do every Wednesday that nobody else really knows how to do. Last year, I gave the job to Kathy but that's obviously not an option this year, and anyway even she was not quite comfortable with the task. I can't give it to The Clueless One, because she simply doesn't have the Excel skills to do it, and even if I spent the last 52 weeks training her she still wouldn't be able to do it in under a day. So my options are either to try to teach Transfer Lady, who might be a bit better at it, make Frank do it (which is unfair to him because he's really busy) or just have it not get done that week, which probably wouldn't make anyone happy.
The problem is that the task is very Excel-heavy, and requires, well, not a LOT of Excel skills, but a bit. I have to pull data from Access and paste it into spreadsheets, and convert data and then use V-Lookups and links. And then the compiled information gets sent to some pretty important people. And then some other important people. And then the data is used to make some pricing decisions on pretty important items, that, if it gets screwed up, will make some pretty important people and customers notice and get mad. I hate this task because of how important it is, but for that reason, I can't just hand it to one of the clerks at random.
It's something I'll have to discuss with Frank. And maybe the Hockey Lady...sigh.
4. Oh crap, did I forget the fourth thing? I might have. Meh, anyway here's how my Saturday went. I slept later than originally planned, mostly because the cat decided to be mega-hyper at 2 AM, and that interrupted my sleep, and then I had to yell at him and then pay attention to him. And then I woke up at 9 to use the bathroom and did not feel like getting up at all. so I went back to sleep and stayed in bed until 11.
Mom gave me a plant? She went to buy some plants today at the VA hospital, where they have a cheap plant sale every year. Since Uncle #2 goes up there for group therapy and other medical thingamabobs, she knows when it's coming, so they went together today and got some plants. She put in tomatoes, peppers, zucchini, and cucumbers. Still to be planted are the string beans and the lettuce. Anyway, they had these pots of something called "million bells" which are like mini petunias? for half price. So she got two and decided that I should have a pot because I have a little mini porch area outside my door and I could put it there. So I did. There. A plant.
Also I went to Michael's today and got some magnets. They also didn't have any of the ornament frames, so maybe I got them at AC Moore? I dunno. Might have to go online and see if I can order them that way. I didn't do any cross-stitching today or yesterday, so I'm hoping this means my hands will have a chance to rest a bit. Between that and the typing I do all the time I'm sure I'll get terrible, horrible carpal tunnel syndrome shortly.
Anyway. I think that's all for today, folks.
Friday, 07 June 2013
Well, hi there Xanga.
It's Friday, which is the second most wonderful day of the week after Caturday. And that means it's time for...
This is a semi-weekly, whenever I feel like it post that I do on Fridays, in which I post a playlist of songs on a particular theme, or sometimes just some songs I feel like sharing. This week, the theme is FRIENDSHIP.
I've made some great friends here on Xanga, and maybe you have, too. To celebrate those friends, here is some music. Hope you enjoy!
1. Why Can't We Be Friends? - War
This song is pretty simple, and there is no easy answer to the title question. The singer seems to be asking why he can't make friends with people he sees every day who might be a different race, ethnicity, political affiliation, economic status, or other group affiliation. Why can't mafia guys and CIA guys be friends?
Why can't I be friends with people who live across the country from me, who might believe different things than me, look nothing like me, and prefer dogs over cats? (Not that I dislike dogs, I like dogs!)
There's no reason. Because I have friends like that on Xanga.
2. You've Got a Friend in Me - Randy Newman
I have developed an appreciation for Randy Newman's style since hearing the awesome theme song to Monk. Anyway, despite the fact that I have never seen Toy Story all the way through, I like this song.
It's very simple, talking about how friends share troubles, how one friend being down or having troubles makes the other friend sad too. This definitely happens on Xanga. When we read blogs about our friends' troubles, we feel sad and want to help them. Sometimes just having someone around to read your blog and leave you comments (or Monster Hug minis) makes us feel better. :)
3. Friend Like Me - Robin Williams (from Aladdin)
Unfortunately, I don't think I have any friends on Xanga who are genies, or have magical powers.
Or do I...?
ARE SOME OF YOU HOLDING OUT ON ME!?!
4. I'll Be There For You - The Rembrandts (Friends theme song)
Well, duh, what better song about friendship than the theme song to a show that was about friends?
but I'll be there for you
'cause you're there for me too.
5. You've got a Friend - James Taylor
You just call out my name
and you know wherever I am
I'll come running to see you again
Well, thanks to the magic of the interwebs, we don't need to run (thank goodness, because I'm lazy). But we can still be there for our friends online. :)
Well, that's all for this week's playlist, folks.
Stay tuned, because next week I'm going to do another awesome playlist on a theme, and you should listen to that, too.
What songs about Friendship do you know & love?
What do you think about these songs?
What do you think of your Xanga friends? Aren't they awesome?
Until next week, have a fabulous weekend, everybody!
