He is my pretty pretty...

Jon has a new song called Cemetery Song. I love it so much. I listen to it over and over again. It is so sad it just breaks my heart. The guitar is acoustic and pretty and simple and his voice is so sad. It makes me want to cry every time I hear it. It is so frustrating to me that this record is not out yet. I just want to talk to people about it. Out of all three records, I think this one is the best that is coming out this year, it blows the new Posies out of the water, and Big Star has got nothing on it. I'm so proud of him.

There's no wondering where you are now
Your so far now
That you can't get any father away....

There's a red sunset on a movie screen
with every shade of evening in between
This is how you will always be to me so it seems
And in your arms I learned to breath
you brought me up and you let me be
Dared to let me go, to set me free...

pretty pictures...

Just posted Jon's little tour diary via his cel phone on the website.
Pretty silly stuff. Feel free to check it out! :-)

I plan to keep adding them as I get them.

What's been going on?

Well let me see..

My husband is traveling, so my daughter and I have been spending loads of time being girly and doing girly stuff like Shopping, hanging out and gossiping. It has been a lot of fun. I feel like it is such an important time in her life, and we have been given this great gift of having a really solid relationship. It has been great. We do miss Jon quite a bit though. When we do things like go shopping or go out to eat we always miss him. It is like we forgot to bring him along. In ways I am learning that missing someone is quite similar to mourning them. The first few days of it gave me a panicky feeling because I have dealt with so much loss, but this time I know the lost person is coming home to me again.

Something to do with summer and pheromones or something has caused all of the crazies to find me highly attractive. Earlier this week I had a pimp tell me I was gorgeous and then give me his whole line of yadda yadda before I could escape. I thought he was going to offer me a job!
And then today on the way back from my doctor I was followed down the street by a group of guys going on and on about my hair, my shoes, my booty. They were making a lot of racket and whistling. I suddenly started seeing images from A Clockwork Orange. It made me laugh and a little bit afraid. Listen guys, if you find a girl attractive, following her down the street and yelling at her is not a way to get good attention. However, it is a good way to get pepper sprayed.

Speaking of the doctor, I got my clean bill of health today. I had some drama over the last few months which I was keeping under my hat just because I wanted to suss it all out before I went public with it. I remember when I was a kid and got the Chicken Pox, I didn't feel sick until somebody told me I was. I guess I was afraid the same thing would happen here if I went and told everyone what was going on. So I just went on business as usual until it was all over.
Basically I had a big old chunk of cells removed that were precancerous. There was a minor surgery involved just before our anniversary and a helluva a lot of doctors appointments and testing. I got the pathology results today and the doctor told me that had I gone to see her any later I would have full blown Cancer and I was REALLY lucky I went when I did. What an eye opener that was! She said I have to come in every few months to be checked on, but she said that there is a 95% chance I caught it in time and am "cured".
Funny enough, the only reason I went when I did was to break in my new insurance for my new job, so in essence my job saved my life. How ironic!
So having said that, I would like to tell all of you to go to your regular doctors appointments and get your check ups, don't wait until you are sick because if you do, it may be too late.
Now I am putting it all behind me.
All of this really made me take a long look at my life, and I have to say, I am OK with it. Life is good and I am a very lucky girl.

In happier news, I turn 31 next Thursday! What happened to the last year? It all went so fast! I am really proud of the last year and how it turned out, so I don't have any regrets. I can only say it was one of the more eventful years of my life!
I walk away from it older and wiser, but mostly older.

That is all for now. Catch you on the flipside!

One Fantastic Bore...

Darian and I went to see The Fantastic Four. I have been looking forward to it since I saw the preview before Batman Returns. I think Jessica Alba is hot and Julian McMahon from Nip Tuck is hot, and Michael Chiklis from The Shield is just a full on badass (and a little hot) so where did they go wrong? It should have been named the Fantastic Bore.

It reminded me of one of those God-awful Disney Channel original movies. I think The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants was more entertaining and that is so not hot.
