Things that go on in my brain

9 May

Does everyone have Dolly Parton singing “Nine to Five” playing in their head when they stumble out of bed in the morning, or is it just me?

I’ve poured myself “a cup of ambition” and am trying to come to life. I guess the very act of getting up to go to work evokes that song.

It is a lot better than that odd period of my life when I awoke each morning with “My Eyes Adored You” stuck in my head. Why was that playing in my mental muzak while I slept and why for so many days in a row? Can I just say, I don’t like that song. I liked it even less at the crack of dawn when I couldn’t shake it out of my brain. I can only imagine what unholiness must have been going on in my subconscious while I slept to make that ditty surface.

I didn’t sleep well last night and I am grumpy as heck this morning. I was all whiny about writing—“I don’t feel like it!” my inner brat said, stomping his little feet. “Shut up and type!” my inner adult responded, twisting his little arm.  “Don’t hurt that inner-child!” my inner social worker shouted. There was nearly a free for all but I got to typing and everyone calmed down.

Sometimes I worry all these inner-beings are really just symptoms of multiple personality disorder. Am I going all “Sybil” or something? I’d have it checked out but sometimes these inner-child, inner-adult squabbles are the most entertaining part of my day. Why spoil the party?

I happened to notice that North Carolina voted to ban gay marriage. I am not surprised. They don’t even want people to have the option of civil unions or domestic partnerships. Florida passed a similar law not too long ago. I suggest gay people, planning vacation trips, try to work around states like Florida and North Carolina. They don’t want your domestic partnership stinking up their state, so please oblige them by funneling your money somewhere else.

My inner-critic is attempting to point out to me that since I live in Florida, I am a bit of a hypocrite for telling people not to spend money here. My inner-critic is a bitch. I am sending my inner-thug to give him a good smack. I was in Florida before they passed the ban on my long term relationship that actually began in Florida, so in some twisted way, I am changing the system from within. So back off, inner critic!

I had the pleasure of meeting someone in person yesterday who I first met online on  Myspace. We still stay in touch on Facebook, so when she came to town, we made a lunch date. Back when I was spending a lot of time on Myspace, my significant other used to joke that I was talking to my imaginary friends. It is always nice when I get to meet one of these nice people in person, just to confirm that they are real after all.

Which is good, because my actual imaginary friends were so jealous! They may have been responsible for planting “My Eyes Adored You” in my head. They know I hate that song. I think they were just trying to get even with me for stepping out on them with imaginary friends that turn out to be real.

Whew. I do have a busy mind, don’t I? That’s good. It is important to keep your brain active. There’s a lot of activity going on in my brain, believe you me.  Maybe I should try to funnel some of that brain action into something constructive…

Have a happy Wednesday.

    Good Morning! It is so good to see a blog from one of my favorite bloggers. I do miss those days, but seem to have filled the void with other things. Things I am not proud of, such as my openly seen addiction to games. But anyway….Really nice to see your ramblings again.

    Never had 9 to 5 stuck in my head but have on occasion had Jolene which is worse than My Eyes Adored You, in my opinion.

    I think legally married gay people should move to North Carolina and Florida and set up house keeping and vote often. Instead of them running y’all off you should move in by the droves. That would really upset their apple cart.
