Today's Random Thoughts:

1. I like fat ball point pens. 1.4 mm. So smooth...

2. After about a week, I can finally smell and taste again! Never knew how much I under-appreciated those two senses!

3. I love the frosted mini wheats with a touch of fruit in the middle. I don't care if they've got high fructose corn syrup in them, either. They are delicious.

4. I still hate my new phone. Thanks a lot, AT&T.

5. Almond Breeze almond milk is way better than Silk almond milk. In case you wanted to know.

6. I really like listening to the Bare Naked Ladies, but pretty much only like the songs Steven Page sings on. I can't stand that other guy.

7. It's kind of interesting when you realize you've passed down some attribute or characteristic to your kids. For instance, Vessel has a serious oral fixation, just like me. Always gotta be chewing on something. I can usually find him with his fingers in his mouth.

8. We made homemade ketchup the other day. It was good, but probably wasn't worth the trouble.

9. Our guitar teacher is very odd. And very manly, did I mention that? But she knows her stuff, so I gotta give her props.

10. This seems like a good number to end on. I think I'll eat a poptart now.

We Will We Will Rock You

Mike and I decided it was time for us to find a hobby that we could do together. So we're taking guitar lessons! We had this brunette acoustic Fender for awhile, just sitting collecting dust. So we picked up this blonde Fender Squier at the pawn shop yesterday so we'd both have one. I can't wait until we can jam out.

Lyric Likes

Some of the saddest lyrics
from "Fond Farewell" by Elliott Smith

I see you're leaving me
And taking up with the enemy
The cold comfort of the in-between
A little less than a human being
A little less than a happy high
A little less than a suicide
The only things that you really tried
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn't get things right

I love the music of Elliott Smith. Sometimes very sad but also very honest. And I like these lyrics because they make me feel something. I listen to this album all the time and it never gets old.
