favorite lyrics of the day (Valentine's edition)

I heard this ditty on the way to work this morning and I thought I would share it with everyone.... to help get you in the romantic mood.

Magic, by Charlie Wilson
Good evening, baby and welcome to the Charlie show
Tonight I'm going to be showing you things that you've never seen before
so just sit back and relax
because tonight I'm going to be doing some things
that no man has ever done to you, baby
Aiiight, listen

Abrakadabra form of a bedroom
Now add a little candle light and the scent of your sweet perfume, girl
Hocus pocus (poof) now you in that cute little dress that I like
Now don't lose focus on what I'm about to show you tonight

I can do magic
One snap of your finger girl,
I'll perform a trick on you
Anything you want me to do
Cuz I could do magic
Girl all you gotta do is dim the lights
and I'll show you a trick or two
awwww baby because I could do magic, I could do magic

Now I ain't no psychic but I can see what you need, girl
And you don't have to write it
cuz looking at your body I could read, girl
you giving me the eye and it's making me want you bad, girl.
Turn around.
Now can you guess what's in my pants?


I'll make our friends disappear
Then out of nowhere, a hotel room will appear
Then suddenly, next thing you know it's you and me
(I'll touch you babe)
Girl, know I lose, just please believe
Bear witness to what I'm about to do
turn the lights off and make all your wishes come true
Wave my hand, wink my eye, there goes your clothes
there's something I want you to know.


Call me Houdini or David Copperfield
I am your genie, baby, this love for you is real.
And girl what we have is magic and I vow to never let it go
So abrakadabra and hocus pocus
Now we are married forever more
I'll let you guess which verse is my favorite.

I also will add these flowers, to be extra classy.Happy Valentine's Day.

I think I'm almost done with this icky flu thing. Besides coughing up the occasional lung chunk or getting a head rush from standing up too fast, I'm feeling pretty good. I will now share with you a photo of the bounty that Alex left for me on Friday before he left for work: My favorite part was the pudding, so soothing and delicious for swollen tonsils. My least favorite part was the Robitussin. I avoided it until Alex forced me to take some on Friday night. And when I say some I mean too much, I'm pretty sure he made me O.D.. About an hour ingesting the Robo I was convinced there were critters crawling up and down my arms. Alex came into the bedroom to find me slapping myself and mumbling about bugs. The next day he informed me that over the course of the evening my hallucinations had graduated to some form of Tourette syndrome - I would sleep for about 20 minutes and then wake up and repeatedly and violently shout "FUCK! It wasn't me!" or "SHIT! I didn't do it!" Apparently this cycle continued for a few hours, luckily I don't remember any of it.

I'm sure Oregon is a lovely state, but I only witnessed the outdoor part at night, so I think I missed out on a lot. I was there last Sunday - Tuesday for work and I only saw the insides of a few buildings, including hotels. From one of the offices we visited I got a glimpse of the mountains, and on our three hour drive from Bend to Eugene I could make out a lot of snow piled up on the sides of the pass. I think there was a covered bridge somewhere along the way, but it was hard to see stuff in the dark.

The worst part of the trip (besides catching the flu from Hell) was the flight from SFO to Redmond. I've never been on a prop plane before and much to my delight I was able to sit in the seat where I had a perfect view of the propeller. I actually wasn't too bothered by the whole thing until we were coming for the landing and we hit 60mph cross winds. I tried to play it cool and act like I was okay by continuing to knit, but in reality my palms were sweaty and the blanket I was making suffered deeply due my angst.

I wouldn't mind going back there, because that mountain pass would have been a lot more fun to drive through during the day... with friends.

I'm hot blooded

check it and see, I've got a fever of a hundred and three.

No, seriously, I do. I'm currently getting my ass kicked by the flu. You know the one, the one I didn't get a shot for this year. I can't explain how much I hate this, not only is it painful, but it's boring. I've only been sitting around the house for about 24 hours and I feel like I'm going crazy. I would get out and take a walk but there are a few factors working against me: 1. the weather really sucks 2. I have a hard time walking when I'm shivering out of control and 3. did I mention that I'm miserable and sick?
