…I’ve had Freddy Johnston’s song stuck in my head for three days now.  Can’t shake it loose.  I’m surprised no one has remade it or sampled it.  The song sounds current, like it could be a hit today.  Here, have a listen:

…I finally wrote a story with a happy ending (at least I think this is a happy ending) and it’s up at Bartleby Snopes today:

…It doesn’t feel like Monday today, but I know it is.
Here are some things I like to start off the week:

“You have such pretty brown eyes—the kind that you should make a big deal about.”
“We accept the love we deserve.”--Perks of Being A Wallflower

“Some people are always grumbling because roses have thorns. I am thankful that thorns have roses.” Allophones Karr
“There are things to be said of love that no one is saying.” Kerry Giangrande
“They put me down, man, those square people in Port Arthur. They called me a slut. They threw rocks at me in class. But all I was looking for was some kind of personal freedom and other people who felt the way I did.” -- Janis Joplin
“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.” Mahatma Gandhi

“The butterfly does not look back upon its caterpillar self, either fondly or wistfully; it simply flies on.”  Guillermo del Toro

“My mother drew a distinction between achievement and success. She said that achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is within you.  Success is being praised by others. That is nice but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about success.”   Helen Hayes
