Here is one thing you can choose to do when you wake up at 4 am. Doodle with your Sharpie pens. Draw some birds out of your Birds of North America book, and hum an old Elton John classic, and try to remember the words and what the actual title to the song is...Oh it is called "Someone saved my Life Tonight"!!!
Been listening to a new radio channel here in the car...it's called Magic 102.7 FM. It plays songs from the 60's and 70's...it's a lot of fun for a baby boomer, such as myself...I remember all of the words and can sing along just like it was yesterday. Helps me feel like I really can remember words, so I don't have to say just any old word that comes out of my mouth...not the correct one, but just the one that happens to come out at any given moment!! If you are not over 50, you probably won't know what I am talking about. My friend says she has a new way to talk...whatever word comes out as she is speaking, she does not try to come up with the correct word, she just keeps on talking...and we laugh because we know it SHOULD be a different word, and generally I know what she meant to say, and vice versa...ha ha ha. The fun of aging. YEAH. Sure. But at least we can still have fun...we aren't quite to the Alzheimers stage yet...just slightly word deficient at times. But getting back to the radio channel...it's a good thing...lot's of memories of middle school and high school years for me associated with these songs.
So I'm sure I have heard this Elton John song on Magic 102.7 sometime recently, and it quite easily jumped into my head when I found myself wide awake and unable to get back to sleep at 4 am. I decided I like the DAMN IT part of the song...it's what comes to mind at these times. I also wonder if that is why I sometimes can't come up with a correct word...could it be sleep deprivation????? I say women of the world should really unite...meet up online in the middle of the night to play cards, or games of some sort. I'm actually sure some of us are doing that even now. Maybe this will become my new world...the silent, solitary nighttime world of online games, while the rest of the world sleeps...soundly...nice long hours...all rested and beautiful each morning...and here I come, all dogged out! LOLOL.
Welcome to a happy Saturday everyone!!! Now...let me go have a nap!
