(If you are looking for my Friday Haiku for today, it's just below, but I couldn't leave well enough alone today.)
Just stick with me. This ends happy.
So I get in the car this morning, big ass zit on my chin and tears rolling down my face scring-ing (scream-singing) to Carrie Underwood "All-American Girl" because that song strikes me right where I live and makes me wish against fate unfair to the point of utter heartbreak. I looked like a complete mess, glossy cry-eyes and whatnot, headed into work, but I didn't care. I like songs that make me feel, even if sometimes that feeling happens to be sadness. I'm human. I bleed. I feel. I cry. All this just means that I am alive and experiencing life!
But I also laugh. Heartily. With Vigor. I love to laugh.
The next song played was one that I also *always* turn way up and sing at the top of my lungs, but it's because because it's Entirely Too Much Fun! I'd bet many of you have heard this song called "The Scotsman." I wanted to both share it with y'all in case you need a boost and also put it here for safekeeping for the next time I need a boost, but nothing prepared me for the version I found on YouTube - this song, performed by... The Sims2 (me? love the Sims2! Just saw there will be a Sims3 in 2009).
Oh. Dear. God. in. Heaven. I was clearly meant to smile today, PMS emotional wacky train and big zit on my chin and all. If you haven't heard this masterpiece, do listen through to the end. If you need the lyrics for the full experience, they are here. Otherwise get someplace where it's safe to turn up the speakers, clap along and get into the whole "Ring-ding didle lidle la deo, Ring dye didley eye oh" thing that will be in your head all day (my gift to you for the day; you're welcome) and that you'll sing aloud before the day ends.
