a little better

so my stomach has calmed down….wooo. that was not pleasant! luckily i have jen and sofia in my life to take care of me 🙂 soup and tea and backrubs and a couch and tv will make anyone feel better!

today a highlight – sophia wallace is the photographer who took my book photo and now her new site is up with some gorgeous spreads. http://sophiawallace.com/ – check it out!

on the other hand, i slept till noon today. my body feels weak and putting on clothes seems like a completely offensive concept. i am watching judge joe brown – justice is nuts. basically this whole show seems to be tired ass men who don’t pay their bills. i’d love to see some post show evaluation and how many folks actually pay afterwards…

in other tv news, last night’s laguna beach finale was severely disappointing, for those who watch. was i the only one like, ‘jason just tell lc you love her and want her back!’??? sigh. but sydney poitier on oprah was awesome! don’t be all shocked that i watch tv, i LOVE pop culture at least as much as i hate it. i just don’t watch it at my house, where we have officially got the rabbit ears back in place.

this has been a lyrical time, with some sarah stuff, some vivian green jams, and…breaking news, janine is alerting me to some awesome bono lyrics from the album achtung baby. i have to go and sit with that.  actually…you can sit with it too!

here we go:

sarah mclachlan’s answer –

I will be the answer
At the end of the line
I will be there for you
While you take the time
In the burning of uncertainty
I will be your solid ground
I will hold the balance
If you can’t look down

If it takes my whole life
I won’t break, I won’t bend
It will all be worth it
Worth it in the end
Cause I can only tell you what I know
That I need you in my life
When the stars have all gone out
You’ll still be burning so bright

Cast me gently
Into morning
For the night has been unkind
Take me to a
Place so holy
That I can wash this from my mind
The memory of choosing not to fight

If it takes my whole life
I won’t break, I won’t bend
It will all be worth it
Worth it in the end
‘Cause I can only tell you what I know
That I need you in my life
When the stars have all burned out
You’ll still be burning so bright

Cast me gently
Into morning
For the night has been unkind

and bono’s/u2’s  ‘so cruel’

We crossed the line
Who pushed who over
It doesn't matter to you
It matters to me

We're cut adrift
But still floating
I'm only hanging on
To watch you go down
My love

I disappeared in you
You disappeared from me
I gave you everything you ever wanted
It wasn't what you wanted

The men who love you, you hate the most
They pass right through you like a ghost
They look for you but your spirit is in the air
Baby, you're nowhere

Oh...love...you say in love there are no rules
Oh...love...sweetheart...
You're so cruel

Desperation is a tender trap
It gets you every time
You put your lips to her lips
To stop the lie

Her skin is pale like God's only dove
Screams like an angel for your love
Then she makes you watch her from above
And you need her like a drug

Oh...love...you say in love there are no rules
Oh...love...sweetheart...
You're so cruel

She wears my love like a see-through dress
Her lips say one thing
Her movements something else
Oh love...like a screaming flower
Love...dying every hour...love

You don't know if it's fear or desire
Danger the drug that takes you higher
Head in heaven, fingers in the mire

Her heart is racing, you can't keep up
The night is bleeding like a cut
Between the horses of love and lust
We are trampled underfoot

Oh...love...you say in love there are no rules
Oh...love...sweetheart...
You're so cruel

Oh...love...to stay with you I'd be a fool
Sweetheart...you're so cruel
