I've Got a Lot of Living to Do!

There are girls just ripe for some kissin - and I mean to kiss me a few

I don't have any idea why I'm in such a fantastic mood today. Perhaps it was the nine-hours of sleep I got last night? That's a good theory. To better prepare for my 0700 conference call, I made sure the kids were down and I was in bed by 2100. I remember at one point I looked at the clock and was upset it read 10:59 until I closed my eyes and realized I'd been dreaming (I'd had a healthy portion of mozzarella for dinner). Which means sometime between 2100 and 2300, I'd not only fallen asleep, but actually managed to sleep deeply enough to hit REM sleep. Awesome!

Oh, those girls - don't know what they're missin, I've got a lot of living to do

Mostly I've been dancing Christopher Walken-style from the 'Weapon of Choice' video. That is of course when I don't break out into song. I think that most people are just full of horseshit. They say, "Musicals aren't very realistic because people don't just break out into song and start dancing." Aside from the fact that enjoying a musical has NOTHING to do with realism, I find that in my everyday life I do break out into song! Ask anyone who knows me.

And there's wine - all ready for tastin, and there's cadillacs - all shiny and new

This may a little difficult for me to piece together at this juncture, but I'm going to try. I dreamed there was a new movie out. It was the intertwined story of Japanese carjackers driving metallic-orange Japanese coupes, and a group of Texans who were traveling across the state in Conestoga wagons (in traditional garb of that period). What I recall most about this movie other than the stark differences in this cross-genre film, was that the well-known actors did all their own songs (which were remakes of popular songs limited to the West Texas area - I remember thinking at the time, "Poor drax0r won't be familiar with any of these since he hails from East Texas..."). I remember being moved to tears with emotion everytime these well-known actors began singing their songs. It was beautiful.

Got to move, 'cause time is a wastin' There's such a lot of liv-in' to do!

Mostly I've been soft-shoeing around the office today signing my favorite hits from the likes of Bye Bye Birdie, The Pajama game and Guys and Dolls. I set the coffee maker to start early this morning in preparation of my early morning call and drank 3 full cups of hot, black coffee. I think the euphoria has just lasted all day long. Oh, and the conference call went well - always a plus!

There's music to play, places to go, people to see - everything...for you and me!
Life's a ball, if only you know it - and it's all...just waiting for you!
You're a-live, so go on and show it - there's such a lot of livin' to do!
