Hopless but Hopefull… Joni Mitchell- Both Sides Now

3.11.2010 § 4 Comments

I think I’ve mentioned this before, but I am and have always been a hopeless romantic.

For me it’s like having brown eyes. I could try to say put color contacts on but, they’d always still be brown.

It’s an affliction that I think more people have than they actually let on. I think most of us want to be loved for the awesome qualities that are unique to us and to have someone to share the simple joys of life with. But, boy do I ever have it bad.

If relationships or the possibilities of them were like balloons, each time I put in all of my air. Sometimes they begin to float up teasing me that they will soar into the sky,  yet up until this point something always comes in to pop it.

I’ve tried really hard to pick better balloons, but for one reason or another I always get it wrong.

It’s okay. I’ll keep trying, because I just can’t help it, and getting smarter, but it can get a little sad.

This song is perfect for that hopeless romantic  gone wrong feeling. I first heard it in Love Actually. The scene where it comes about is so heart wrenching and made me totally get what the fuss about Joni is all about.

If YOU have a wonderful love, I am so happy for you. But ya know, come on universe share the wealth. Ha.

Oh hello there!

Can you believe that we’re nearing the end of the year? Crazy how time flies.

The Colorado Galvins are flying in and will be here any time now. All nine of us will be sharing the joys of the holiday season for two weeks in one house.

Nine. One house.

Crowded and chaotic. Yes and yes.

But, filled with so much love ya just can’t help but be greatfull.

pssst…. If I were to make wishes for Christmas it would be for a pup and to be able to play the guitar as nasty as this chick (who by the way live is so amazing and charming). Santa?

It’s Wednesday. Time to get it together.

I know, I know, life is hard.

The economy is in shambles, you’re looking for a job, your girlfriend broke up with you, you have a coworker with a bad attitude, your kid is sick, you can’t find enough time to exercise, and to top it all off your terrier won’t let you dress him in the new professional outfit you bought to update his style.

(ugh animals are so ungrateful, right?)

Well in times like these I turn to song. Not just any ‘ole song, of course. Something prolific….

It goes-“You take the good, you take the bad. You take them both and there you have the facts of life. The facts of life”.

The video is below. Now if Jo’s haircut, Blair’s lip gloss, and Tootie’s, well everything, doesn’t make you laugh at it all, then I don’t know what will.

Don’t laugh too hard, withstanding any recent drug addictions, those ladies are laughing all the way to the bank for sharing with us the awkwardness of adolescence.

Happy Wednesday!

What’s the trickiest time YOU’VE experienced

only to realize later that it was all good?

Good Morning Leaders of Tomorrow!

I know it’s Monday and that was really annoying but it’s true.

We’re all responsible for helping each other out, without of course putting our selves into a tight spot.

If you have no cash to give to someone in need this fine holiday season, no worries, just find some time.

Time is what can really make some big impacts, even if it’s just for a few hours.

So share your love and good fortune with others who probably don’t have access to a computer to read this.

psst… here’s a fun song to get your Monday rolling:

Dirty Projectors, Stillness Is The Move

What’s one time YOU were reluctant to help

but did?

Hello:12.3.11….The National Conversation 16

Good evening ladies and gents.

I just got back from watching “My Week With Marilyn,” bravo Michelle.  Keep your eyes glued for a review later this week.

On the way home I heard this song from the National- Conversation 16.

This song hit the thoughts/feelings the movie conjured up- a pinch of romance, a lot of melancholy, and a good dose of melodrama. In all so Hollywood. Perfect.

Sleep tight and get ready for a great week!

Ya Gotta Know When to Fold Them…..Power Tools

Listen up everyone,

Jo and power tools do not mix. Or any tools for that matter. Add onto the list nails, screws, etc.

I tried relaying this information to my boss, but she just can’t grasp the concept. It may seem like a silly girly thing, but believe you me, I would love to whack the shit out of some nails and make beautiful things, but I just can’t.

It has something to do with my coordination and noseyness. If you’ve ever had a conversation with me and watched me walk into a wall as I talked to you, it would all make sense.
