Jim prompts us with Australian music. I had to google Australian music and then get a list of groups from which to pick. I knew of Midnight Oil & Men at Work since I’m an 80s baby but I was pleasantly surprised to see AC/DC and Savage Garden in the list. Decisions, decisions & they were not easy. I finally picked “I Want You” from Savage Garden. Songwriters: Daniel Jones / Darren Hayes. Now I’m singing along & there may or may not be some chair dancing going on. Hope you enjoy!!

Any time I need to see your face
I just close my eyes and I am taken to a place
Where your crystal mind and magenta feelings taken shelter
In the base of my spine, sweet like a chica cherry cola

I don’t need to try and explain, I just hold on tight
And if it happens again, I might move so slightly
To the arms and the lips and the face and the human cannonball
I need to, I want to come stand a little bit closer

Breathe in and get a bit higher
You’ll never know what hit you when I get to you

Oh, I want you, I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out
Oh, I want you, I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out

I’m the kind of person who endorses a deep commitment
Getting comfy, getting perfect is what I live for
But I’m looking and the smell perfume, it’s like I’m down
On the floor and I don’t know what I’m in for

Conversation is time and place of the interaction of a lover
And the nick of time over talkin using signals, using words
Can be likened to a deep sea diver who is swimming
With a raincoat, come stand a little bit closer

Breathe in and get a bit higher
You’ll never know what hit you when I get to you

Oh, I want you, I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out
Oh, I want you, I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out

Any time I need to see your face
I just close my eyes and I am taken to a place
Where your crystal mind and magenta feelings taken shelter
In the base of my spine, sweet like a chica cherry cola

I don’t need to try and explain I just hold on tight
And if it happens again I might move so slightly
To the arms and the lips and the face
And the human cannonball, I need to I want to

Oh, I want you, I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out
Oh, I want you I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out, so can we find out

Oh, I want you, I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out
Oh, I want you, I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out

Oh, I want you, I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out
Oh, I want you I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out, die to find out

Oh, I want you, I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out
Oh, I want you, I don’t know if I need you
But oh, I would die to find out

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 9/18/22

I’ve got so much to spill! Something happened to release the floodgates of my mental angst & that sH!t flowed away out to sea or rolled all the way down the hill. I’m so much better. My worry was making my physical worse though I still do have that sadly but I also have a Plan B!!! And since B is well B, that is good luck. AmIRight?!?!?! I won’t write everything because quite frankly my memory is not what it used to be. In my excitement, I’m sure I’m forgetting something.

Happy birthday to the boyfriend. Not mine. Lulu’s. She visiting him for lunch. There was a time in the not so distant past where that wasn’t possible. No need for more details but we’re just happy happy those days are over.

I’m looking at my work calendar because that’s how I remember stuff. I worked at home Monday – Wednesday knowing I would do my requisite two days in office on Thursday and Friday. Thursday was the big pizza party & I was the only dork in a mask. But and it’s a big but, I do not care. If I can social distance, I’m sans the mask. I have 2 shots and 3 boosters, yep we got #3, the bi-variant booster on 9/11/22, even the kids ages 34 and 24. That’s why I sometimes take off my mask at work. I test weekly too. And if I catch the vid at work, I will be forever pissed. Anyway, I feel okay with the level of care I’m taking for the most part but in close quarters like we were Thursday, uh nope. B asks me what did you do? I said socialized with my mask on as others ate. I talked to more people than I have in quite a while. Then I took two slices of pizza back to my socially distanced desk. Can you just hear the music? You’re anti, you’re anti-social … lol

Friday when I got a florentine scramble bagel (healthy points subsidy 1/2 off for only $1.79), the lady ringing me up said “you have a beautiful heart”. And me, for a split second, I thought she was complimenting me for being a nice person … you know a beautiful heart. I’m trying hard to make things right & be kind. Then she points to my wrist, your tattoo is lovely. Awwww. That’s my Lulu’s handiwork.

Ok, enough rambling. I have run out of time to spill so guess I will write more on that later. Here is the roll call. In reverse for a change up.

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.
