From Celtic Thunder's "The Island." I love that song. It's about how even with all the bad things that happen, there's still love. The chorus is about sex, but it's not like "All Night Long" sex. It's more like, say, "Bubbly." It's sweet.
"But, hey, don't listen to me
Cos this wasn't meant to be no sad song
We've heard too much of that before
Right now I only wanna be with you, 'til the morning dew comes falling
I wanna take you to the island
Trace your footprints in the sand
And in the evening, when the sun goes down
We'll make love to the sound of the ocean."
It's a wonderful song. I love it a lot. It makes me feel all warm and cozy, probably cos it holds only good memories for me. My friend Laura introduced me to it last summer. I listened to it over and over while
curled under a blanket, and again the next day on the ferry ride to Fort Delaware, which was my first ferry ride I didn't get sick on :D. The song just makes me happy.
I had a good Fourth of July. At least, better than expected. My stepdad got home at 2.22 exactly. Moxi came over after dinner, and while I wish I could and thought I would be able to truthfully say that she's still here, her dad changed his mind about letting her spend the night somewhere between her emailing me that she could and us actually picking her up. Ah, well. We'll get that sleepover in sometime. We had spaghetti for dinner.
I had a lot of fun with Mox. We played a lot of Egyptian Rat Screw (she won. Every. Single. Game.) and had an epic swordfight with glowstick swords from the dollar store. Neither of us really paid attention to the fireworks. I mean, we watched them, but we also talked. Not normal "would someone tell those teenagers to stop talking so we can enjoy the show?" talk. More of like "what are your dreams?" kind of talk. It was really nice. Another warm and fuzzy feeling.
Third warm and fuzzy: Two days ago I sent Moxi an email about how I was afraid I'd lose her cos she spends so much time away now and I didn't want her to change and yada yada yada and I got a reply
yesterday. She whacked me upside the head and then wrote seven paragraphs telling me that stuff would never happen. I printed them out and put them on my Wall of Awesome. (more on the WoA for another
So it's 3 in the morning and I need sleep so signing off!
