[Errant Evermore @ lj]

I would post something deeply meaningful, philosophic and/or smart here, but that would kind of defeat the purpose. So, really, all I am going to say is this: believe it or not, most of you on my friends list at this journal have helped me through one tough time or another since I've met you. Thank you, and I hope to see you there. :)

2. Straying from the proper course or standards: errant youngsters.
3. a. Wandering outside the established limits: errant lambs.
b. Aimless or irregular in motion: an errant afternoon breeze.

So very much of my rambling on this journal has been about music and youtube.

Makes sense that my last, not-goodbye post would be both! I tried to put one video (two, in the case of Marillion) for every band I consider among my favorites. Hee.

A Boatload of Videos!Collapse )

Richard Dreyfuss (aka Roy from Close Encounters of the Third Kind, aka One Of My Favorite Movie Characters Ever) is in jaws.

Ergo, I must now watch Jaws.

Thank you, Kat.

We went to take food to CJ out at the station, and also went for a drive~ There are fireflies everywhere. I love fireflies. Also tonight was high on the observation of glowy things - we came out on the highway near the trash incinerator, drove towards TMI and Falmouth (pronounced like Foulmouth, for much hilarity), which meant we were also out towards the airport, so we saw a few planes too.

...the fireflies were the best though. I need to find out if mom's camera can take pictures of them all lit up and sparkling over the corn and wheat fields. And the phrase "Summer smells like fireflies..." is again attaching itself to my brain. It wants to be my nano. That's three ideas now...

Updating multiple times in one day is boring. Make note of this fact, and never do it again, and everything will be peachykeen. Think of something interesting to do for the next three posts. Capisce?

The Dog Days of summer, the hottest days of the year in the Northern Hemisphere, start today. What's your favorite thing to do in hot weather?

Stay up until two or three watching ridiculous cartoons and monster movies with my siblings, while eating approximately my weight in Popsicles. Between the three of us, I swear, we keep the freezie-pop people in business.

In other news, I've downgraded. 925 posts is the final number - five more to go. What shall they be, I wonder...hmmm....

According to the school age kids at work (namely the eight through eleven year olds), Smallcreep looks like someone from Pokemon. No clue who, just "someone from Pokemon." The Squonk looks like a "demented bunny. Are you sure you're drawing that right? It looks weird." and Russel is Ozzy Osbourne.

However, I do have a couple of the kids wanting to read BtTatT - one because the world sounds cool, the other simply so she can tell me "How many pets to give Al." (she doesn't like the name Smallcreep, she thinks it's mean that people call him a creep, so I told her what his mum calls him which she thinks is much nicer) "in book two," she clarifies, when I explain that his story begins in a setting with no animals. (Two lab mixes and a horse. The labs are Lucy and Max, the horse is, of all things, Dragonfly. The first lab's name made me laugh, because in the faaar earliest drafts, Chach had a German Shepherd named Lucy. Thank goodness that's gone by the wayside. It doesn't work with the setting.)

Anyway. Maybe that can be motivation for trying to get it finished and published - the whole feel (not counting the drabbles and short things I write to get a feel for the characters' mindsets) of the novel itself is very YA. Maybe I can finish it by the time they're the right age for it.

Two times in one morning! :O What is this? This is "Sarah Is Bored Before Work Theater!" Yay!

This is the most awesome cover version of Helter Skelter ever, and one of the two Marillion/h Beatles cover versions that I like -on the note of h/Marillion covers: most of them are pretty awesome. Germ Free Adolescent, Whole of the Moon/Spirit, Six Months in a Leaky Boat, The King is Half Undressed, Cloudbusting, Famous Blue Raincoat? I like those more than (or, in the case of Moon/Spirit and Famous, equal to) the originals, but for some reason (with the notable exception of h's version of The Ballad of John and Yoko, which I like for what are probably not the correct reasons) their/his Beatles covers never seem to work for me. (Unlike his versions of Peter Gabriel songs that work well but that he just quits in the middle of, augh. Though in his defense that is awesome for having not practiced.)

...ok, so the piano-only version of A Day In The Life is pretty cool, too, but that's just me.


Also, this video makes him look very short. I mean, I know he's short, but this one kinda takes the cake. Strange But Real Angles, WannaBeatles lead singer Fish-sized, WannaBeatles standing on raised bits of the stage, or honest camera angles for once? I do not know, I do not care, I just think it makes him adorable. Haha.

This edition of "Sarah Is Bored Before Work Theater" has been brought to you by the letter S, as in "Sarah Does Not Want To Have A Random Number Like 917 As Her Final Number Of Posts In This Blog." Aiming for: 930. 12 more posts in 48 hours! Can she do it? yes she can!

Today, we went to a dairy. We saw cows, and also got rained on. Nothing says "Oh, hey, maybe we should get inside" better than dustdevils and screaming six year olds. Though it was a seven year old with the best line of the day.

Backstory! We went on this hay ride (sans hay) to go see the cows where they stay when they're not being milked. It was just spritzing when we went into the barn, but as the cart sat in the barn the rain picked up to qualify as pouring. SO. Instead of asking "Oh, hey, do you guys want to continue, or just go get someplace dry?" the driver decides that we'll go on - and then the rain really starts. And, instead of going someplace dry to ask re: continuation, he STOPS. In the middle of a RAINSTORM.

Cue seven year old, in her best indignant cat voice: "Why did you STOP?!?"

She said the one thing all the teachers were thinking, exactly the way the three of us wanted to say it. It was pretty funny.

My seat partner on the way to the dairy was my drawing buddy from a few days ago. He can recite more than half of Monty Python and the Search for the Holy Grail verbatim, and also knows far more than necessary about Chao from Sonic or something. He's a fun kid but aaaaaugh I can only listen to things like that for about five minutes, tops. So I gave him my Rubik's Cube for the rest of the trip - the steady stream of poorly accented quotes and video game stats turned into a steady cry of "...Miss Sarah, how am I supposed to do- WAIT I JUST - I DON'T LIKE THIS THING. Maybe if I just...augh that's not right..."

Vast improvement. :D
