Saw Robbo... had a nice time, got home tardy because we couldn't find a parking space... :P so, instead we opted for me to pick up a VCR ... found a great little cheapie for $70! works great, plays, records... nifty. It works well too.. last time I bought a VCR it was $300... this one has a zillion more functions... very cool. and no flashing time, it's integrated into the on-screen. very Spartan, and works fine with the universal remote. (even came with one of it's own, but the VCR's didn't recognize the TV. ) Just in time to start recording red dwarf from first season, and the kids in the hall marathon. :) Contemplating a TV card for the computer now, and not worrying about a DVD player until I *need* something that's only available on DVD. Had a great iced chai and game of checkers while waiting for the movie... Slaughtered Robb. Swung by work on the way home, to pick up a CD and couldn't, as they'd changed the locks!! I hope that doesn't spell trouble for Monday. gave me a freaky vibe.

Here's the song I used to get "who let the dogs out" out of my head today... a classic.

Rush / The Trees

There is unrest in the forest
There is trouble with the trees
For the maples want more sunlight
And the oaks ignore their pleas

The trouble with the maples
And they're quite convinced the're right
They say the oaks are just too lofty
And they grab up all the light

But the oaks can't help their feelings
If they like the way they're made
And they wonder why the maples
Can't be happy in their shade

There is trouble in the forest
And the creatures all have fled
As the maples scream "Oppression!"
And the oaks just shake their heads

So the maples formed a union
And demanded equal rights
The oaks are just too greedy
We will make them give us light

Now there's no more oak oppression
For they passed a noble law
And the trees are all kept equal
By hatchet, axe, and saw

(Words and Music by Geddy Lee and Neil Peart)

Sunlight dances through the leaves
Soft winds stir the sighing trees
Lying in the warm grass
Feel the sun upon your face
Elven songs and endless nights
Sweet wine and soft relaxing lights
Time will never touch you
Here in this enchanted place

You feel there's something calling
you You're wanting to return
To where the Misty Mountains rise
and friendly fires burn
A place you can escape the world
Where the dark lord cannot go
Peace of mind and sanctuary by loud
water's flow

I've traveled now for many miles
It feels so good to see the smiles
of Friends who never left your mind
When you were far away
From the golden light of coming dawn
Till the twilight where the sun is gone
We treasure every season
And every passing day

We feel the coming of a new day
Darkness gives way to light a new way
Stop here for a while until the world,
The world calls you away
Yet you know I've had the feeling
Standing with my senses reeling
This is the place to grow old till
I reach my final day
