Like always, the juiciest stuff happening in my life right now also happens to be stuff I'm not willing/able/ready to talk about yet. This time, it's BIG and it's affecting every crack and crevice of our existence and yet, it's still not bloggable. Nothing gives me writer's block faster than feeling a sick desperation to write about something and not being able to. I promise to write about it - at length - as soon as I can.
(NO. I'm not pregnant.)
(NO. It's not about the book.)
(YES. We are all fine.)
Anyway, I need to find safe things to write about, like, say, Phineas and Ferb. I've pretty much stopped watching television, but every once in a while, I'll look up from whatever I'm reading to catch a song and dance number from Dr. Doofenshmirtz. It's hard to believe the people at DISNEY are coming up with this stuff, but they are. And it's fabulous.
This episode is one in which the space-time-continuum gets screwed up when Candice goes back in time and busts her brothers on the first day of summer, the day they built the giant roller coaster in the back yard. The future Dr. Doofenshmirtz ends up EMPEROR of the Tri-State Area. He names everyone Joe so he can remember their names and makes them all wear lab coats. It's chock full of The Awesome.LYRICS:
It's been a charmed life,
Got all I ever wanted,
And I'm not too shy to flaunt it, you see.
It's been a sweet life,
Everyone is genuflectin'
And erecting giant statues of me.
It's like a great lunch with all you can eat,
And I can leave my wallet at home.
And everyone pays for me,
Because it's compulsory,
Or into the stocking there for 'em.
Still, I'm a nice guy.
How many emperors would always remember your name?
How ya doing, Joe?
I must admit, I
May take quite a lot,
But I'll always give you plenty of blame.
It's been a sweet ride.
Life's a bowl of cherries, and nobody's merrier than me.
Because, everyone else is a proletariat,
And baby I'm the bourgeoisie.
Look it up, Joe!
Baby, I'm the bourgeoisie!
