Mushaboom
by Feist

Helping the kids out of their coats
Oh wait the babies haven't been born oh
Unpacking the bags and setting up
And planting lilacs and buttercups oh

But in the meantime we've got it hard
Second floor living without a yard
It may be years until the day
My dreams will match up with my pay

Old dirt road,
(mushaboom, mushaboom)
knee deep snow
(mushaboom, mushaboom)
Watching the fire as we grow
(mushaboom, mushaboom)
o-o-o-o-old

I got a man to stick it out
And make a home from a rented house oh
And we'll collect the moments one by one
I guess that's how the future's done oh

How many acres, how much light
Tucked in the woods and out of sight
Talk to the neighbours and tip my cap
On a little road barely on the map

Old dirt road,
mushaboom, mushaboom)
knee deep snow
mushaboom, mushaboom)
Watching the fire as we grow,
mushaboom, mushaboom)
o-o-o-o-old
(mushaboom, mushaboom)
Old dirt road rambling rose
(mushaboom, mushaboom)
Watching the fire as we grow
(mushaboom, mushaboom)
Well I'm Sold...

My beloved old roommate Crista told me I needed to blog again. I haven't actually blogged in a really long time it feels like. I finally finished Katharine Hepburn today and it's probably one of my favorites right now. What it's my favorite of I don't know. I just like to say it's one of my favorites.

My many summer adventures are not over even if California is not happening. I leave Friday for Joplin, Missouri to spend time with Crista. It's going to be so strange not having her with me this coming school year. She's staying in Missouri and going to Missouri Southern State University this fall to be closer to her family. It'll be sad without her, but she does have family in Abilene so it's not like she never comes here!

Idaho was good. I think it exhausted me so much that I don't really have anything else to say about if I'm not asked specific questions concerning the trip. I'm not even sure that made sense. I just don't have much to say. Over-priced resort. Close to family for a few days. Beautiful scenery. That about sums it up.

Harry Potter movie was amazing. Waiting for book.

For all of this vacation time, I still have yet to finish Katharine Hepburn. But I am loving it. She's fascinating. Here's a little clip:

"Kate ran up three flights of stairs when the servant at the East 62nd Street townhouse forbade her to use the hand-pulley elevator. She dashed into the studio unannounced, to find a corpulent woman in her fifties waiting on a gilt and velvet throne beside a music stand cluttered with Delsarte charts. Walking in the rain from Aunt Betty Hepburn's apartment has left her soaking wet. Water dripped from Kate's tousled hair and down her nose. 'I want to be an actress,' Kate said. 'I want to learn everything.'"

California is not happening. To say I'm devastated is an understatement.
