Stuck In My Head: "Feel It Still" by Portugal. The Man


"Feel It Still"

Can't keep my hands to myself
Think I'll dust 'em off, put 'em back up on the shelf
In case my little baby girl is in need
Am I coming out of left field?

Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
I been feeling it since 1966, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still
Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
Let me kick it like it's 1986, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still

Got another mouth to feed
Leave it with a baby sitter, mama, call the grave digger
Gone with the fallen leaves
Am I coming out of left field?

Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
I been feeling it since 1966, now
Might've had your fill, but you feel it still
Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
Let me kick it like it's 1986, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still

We could fight a war for peace
(Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now)
Give in to that easy living
Goodbye to my hopes and dreams
Start flipping for my enemies
We could wait until the walls come down
(Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now)
It's time to give a little to the
Kids in the middle, but, oh until it falls
Won't bother me

Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming?
Is it coming back?

Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, yeah
Your love is an abyss for my heart to eclipse, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still

Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
I've been feeling it since 1966, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still
Ooh woo, I'm a rebel just for kicks, now
Let me kick it like it's 1986, now
Might be over now, but I feel it still
Might've had your fill, but I feel it still

Sunday Stealing: Something Different

1. What is a normal thing that took you an embarrassingly long time to learn? As a kid (in grade school), it took me a very long time to learn how to spell library.  Very embarrassing.

2. In what ways are you old-fashioned? I am not sure that I am old-fashioned.  As as adult my ways of thinking have changed quite a bit.

3. What is the best sandwich you've ever eaten? Where did you get it? What made it so delicious? I do think I have ever eaten the best sandwich.  I have had a few good sandwiches but nothing that left a lasting impression.

4. What are you currently not bragging about that you should totally brag about? Nothing I can think of.

5. What food have you never tasted and are most interested in trying? Mediterranean food.

6. What history facts were you surprised to learn because it was never covered in school? Nothing I can think of.

7. What is something that you waited entirely too long to start or stop doing? What made you say
"Why did I wait so long?" I can think of many things that I have not yet started. The biggest thing holding me back is fear; different types of fear depending on what I would like to get started.  For example: Parasailing....I want to do it but I am scared of dying.

8. What socially expected thing do you hate doing the most? What thing about polite society really grinds your gears? Does "small talk" count?  If so, I hate small talk...I call it fluff.  People never say what they mean and they don't mean what they say.  And I hate hearing the bullshit.

9. What is something about your city that I should know if I'm going to visit? What is the hidden "must see" that you always tell friends and visitors to not miss.  There is not much in the small town I live in here in Wisconsin.  The place I always tell friends and visitors to go to is the Wisconsin Dells.  The Dells has plenty of water parks, great shows, shopping and plenty of place to eat.

10. What do you miss most about childhood? I miss not having bills to pay.

11. What "fact" did you learn in school that is not true or no longer true? "You can get pregnant the first time."   I did and have a 28 year old daughter to prove it.

12. What's your favorite piece of useless trivia? Every person's tongue has a unique print, just like fingerprints.

13. What's your best go to homemade "lazy" meal? Anything I can toss into the microwave!

14. What's the title of this current chapter in your life? One Day At A Time

15. What is a habit or practice that you learned from your childhood that you didn't realize was "weird" until you were an adult? Picking scabs and zits, which leaves scars on my face and body.

eCard of the Week #204: I Know How To Party

Nothing says, "I know how to party" like sitting 
at home on a Friday night, wrapped in a blanket,
 reading a book and sipping hot tea.

Stuck In My Head: "Praying" by Kesha


"Am I dead? Or is this one of those dreams? Those horrible dreams that seem like they last forever? If I am alive, why? Why? If there is a God or whatever, something, somewhere, why have I been abandoned by everyone and everything I've ever known? I've ever loved? Stranded. What is the lesson? What is the point? God, give me a sign, or I have to give up. I can't do this anymore. Please just let me die. Being alive hurts too much."

Well, you almost had me fooled
Told me that I was nothing without you
Oh, and after everything you've done
I can thank you for how strong I have become

'Cause you brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I'll just say this is I wish you farewell

I hope you're somewhere praying, praying
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, praying

I'm proud of who I am
No more monsters, I can breathe again
And you said that I was done
Well, you were wrong and now the best is yet to come

'Cause I can make it on my own
And I don't need you, I found a strength I've never known
I've been thrown out, I've been burned
When I'm finished, they won't even know your name

You brought the flames and you put me through hell
I had to learn how to fight for myself
And we both know all the truth I could tell
I'll just say this is I wish you farewell

I hope you're somewhere praying, praying
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, praying

Oh, sometimes, I pray for you at night
Oh, someday, maybe you'll see the light
Oh, some say, in life you gonna get what you give
But some things, only God can forgive

I hope you're somewhere praying, praying
I hope your soul is changing, changing
I hope you find your peace
Falling on your knees, praying
