The bittersweet taste of April 19

**a re-post from a previous birthday** I sort of love this day -- it's my birthday.I love the sweet birthday wishes from everyone; they make me smile and feel happy and warm and loved. Thank you all so much for that. It's the day I feel truly Grinchy...by which I mean my heart grows three sizes.

And creeps.Mi Vida Loca = IT TOTES IS.  It is time for the Annual Birthday Post!Simmah down, I can see your excitement from here. ...more

Why I should not be allowed to think about things.

I love music.LOVE love.Those of you who've suffered through all the incarnations of my radio show know what I like, which is almost everything between the 50s and the 90s, with a couple handsful of random songs from 2000 to now. I also like classic country music, but not too much of 'today's' country. I love to turn up the radio and sing at the top of my lungs - in the house, in the car...in the grocery store.There are a ton of misheard lyrics that I sang incorrectly for years, and I still do, because it's fun....more
