At

The Reception

In Her Glass

Was

A Bleeding Man

She Was Practiced

At The Art

Of Deception

Well

I Could Tell

By Her

Blood-Stained Hands

Oddly, My Peeps…

…I Wasn’t Even Listening To This Song…

YOU CAN’T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT

by The ROLLING STONES

…When It Became Stuck In My Head.

I Was Actually Thinking About Family And Friends.

I Was Thinking About How Some Are True Gems…

…Not To Be Traded For Anyone, Nor Anything.

And I Was Thinking About How Some Treat Me As If I’d Traded Them Away Years Ago And They Came Back Into The Fold Embittered And Royally Pissed-Off.

Honestly…

…It’s VERY Hard For Me To Make Friends…

…And Family Associations Are Just As Difficult.

I’m A Very Trusting Individual When It Comes To Those Whom I’ve Known Longest…

…And Perhaps Too Trusting With Those I Haven’t Known So Long.

I Try Hard To Give Everyone A Fair-Shake…

…Knowing That Doing So Is The Only Real Way To Evaluate A Relationship.

If You Can’t Trust The Person…

…It’s VERY VERY Hard To Maintain The Relationship.

All I Ever Ask Is That My Friends Let Me Know They’re Still Alive…

…Especially When It Has Been A While Since Our Last Contact…

…And…

…DON’T IGNORE ME!

Some Of My Peeps Stay Very Busy…

…Either With Work, Or Their Families, Or Whatever.

That’s Just Life, So It’s No Worries.

BUT…

…When I Know For A Fact They Have Nothing Going On, Nor Will Have Anything Happening Anytime Soon…

…And I Get Blatantly Ignored By Them…

…I Tend To Get Rather Pissy.

However…

…As One Friend Reminded Me Last Night…

…Life’s Too Short To Be Constantly Pissy In Regard To That Simple Failing.

I Kept Thinking And Thinking And Thinking About That, All Night Long.

Then I Said To Myself…

"Well... Can't Always Get What We Want, Right?!"

…And That Was All It Took.

I Then Spent The Bulk Of Last Night Humming And Singing…

YOU CAN’T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WANT

…To Myself.

I Even Went To Bed Thinking About It.

When I Awoke This Morning…

…The Song Was Still Rollin’ Around In My Brain.

So I Decided To Listen To It.

Once.

Twice.

Thrice.

Yeah…

…THREE (3) TIMES.

Back-To-Back-To-Back.

And Then…

…In Sitting Down At My Computer To Check The Email…

…I Quickly Decided I Wanted To Blog About This.

I Love This Song.

It’s My 2ND Favorite Song, Period, By…

The ROLLING STONES

…And It’s A True Classic-Among-Classics.

It Has The Power To Make Me Smile…

…And I Find That Comforting.

I Hate It Hate It HATE IT When I Get Pissy With Family And Friends.

Mainly Because I Know I Shouldn’t.

Everyone Has A Life To Live, And I Can’t Expect To Be Part Of It All.

But, It’s VERY Hard For Me To Just Shut-Up And Take Anything…

…Regardless Of What The Anything May Be.

Being Ignored, To Me, Is Worse Than Any Physical Pain One Might Try To Inflict Upon Me.

It Always Has Been.

Perhaps That’s Just My ADHD Bleeding Through…

…But I Can’t Help It.

Yet…

…All It Took To Calm Me Down And Lift My Spirits…

…Was The Words Of A Friend…

…And A Wonderfully AMAZING Song!

I Find That VERY Fitting.

Wouldn’t You?!

SURE YOU WOULD!!!

My Morning Mixes: Friday, Sweet Friday!

Good Morning, My Peeps.

πŸ™‚

Hope You’re All Swell.

Me?

Can’t Complain, I Suppose.

Still Got A Bad Headache.

That Part Ain’t So Good.

Nor Is The Muscle Strain On My Right Side.

Otherwise?

Well…

…Otherwise I’m Pretty Hunky-Groovy’ish.

I’m Sure The Headache Is Because Of The Freakin’ Weather.

T’Is Rainy And Humid.

The Air Feels Thick Enough To Cut With A Knife.

No Foolin’, Kiddies.

No Foolin’, Indeed.

HOWEVER…

…Regardless Of Said Headache…

…Or Of Said Muscle Strain…

…Or Of Said Weather…

…I Still Decided To Head-Out On A Walk-About.

I Hadn’t Gone Out-&-About For The Past Couple Days…

…So I Wanted To Make Damn Sure I Went Out-&-About Today.

For Today’s Walk…

…I Didn’t Do The Random Shuffling Of My Walkin’ Tunes.

Instead, I Made-Up A Little Playlist.

Listed Below Are The Songs I Ended-Up Jamming To This Morning.

… … …

I Began The Walk With…

SPECIAL K

by PLACEBO

…Since It’s A Pounding Jam Jam Jam-Type Jam.

It Totally Works At Getting The Blood Pumping…

…And At Getting The Feet Moving…

The Second Song On My Playlist Was An Old-School Favorite…

…Which Is A Totally Fun Jam…

πŸ˜€

I Then Took The Tunage In A Totally Different Direction With…

DON’T LET ME SLIDE

…Since I Just Knew I’d Be In Cruise Mode By This Point In The Walk.

πŸ™‚

QUARTERFLASH

…Was Up Next With…

…So I Decided To Kick-It With…

KISS

…And Their Totally Classic Jam…

ROCK BOTTOM

…Which Is Totally My Fave-Fave KISS Jam Of ALL-TIME!

πŸ˜€

And Then, Finally, I Went Into Cool-Down-Mode.

What Better Jam To Cool Down To Than…

BLUE DRESS

by DEPECHE MODE

…Which Is (likely) The Most Forgotten Tune On Their Biggest Album, VIOLATOR.

And That’s A Shame, My Peeps.

It’s A Very Cool Song, Fo FLIPPIN’ SHO!!!

πŸ™‚

… … …

ANWAY, Kiddies…

…I Think It’s About Time For Me To Jump Into The Shower.

So…

…Y’all Should Do Your Best To Take It Easy AND Take Care Of Yourselves.

It’s FRIDAY, Ya Know, So Taking It Easy AND Taking Care Of Yourself Is A Total MUST DO.

Think Y’all Can Handle That?!

SURE YOU CAN!!!

πŸ˜€

Enjoy The Day, Kids.

THE WEEKEND HAS ARRIVED!!!

Well…

…Almost.
