Although I have a few things to say today, I am not writing them down very well, so it is probably best if I leave them for another day. I hate it when the words won’t come out right.

So, as people tend to do on these here tulips, I am pasting some song lyrics in. I know your supposed to pick one that touches your heart or something, or is special and meaningful, but I just think this is a great song.

Of course, only half of that can come through from the words, but you’ll just have to take my word for it, unless you want to buy a copy yourself, obviously.

Things the grandchildren should know

I go to bed real early
Everybody thinks it’s strange
I get up early in the morning
No matter how disappointed I was
With the day before
It feels new

I don’t leave the house much
I don’t like being around people
Makes me nervous and weird
I don’t like going to shows either
It’s better for me to stay home
Some might think it means I hate people
But that’s not quite right

I do some stupid things
But my heart’s in the right place
And this I know

I got a dog
I take him for a walk
And all the people like to say hello
I’m used to staring down at the sidewalk cracks
I’m learning how to say hello
Without too much trouble

I’m turning out just like my father
Though I swore I never would
Now I can say that I have love for him
I never really understood
What it must have been like for him
Living inside his head
I feel like he’s here with me now
Even though he’s dead

It’s not all good and it’s not all bad
Don’t believe everything you read
I’m the only one who knows what it’s like
So I thought I’d better tell you
Before I leave

So in the end I’d like to say
That I’m a very thankful man
I tried to make the most of my situations
And enjoy what I had
I knew true love and I knew passion
And the difference between the two
And I had some regrets
But if I had to do it all again
Well, it’s something I’d like to do

  1. I like your new profile pic, it looks quite sinister and villain-like (mwaw ha ha). I wonder who sent it to you and why they thought it would be perfect for you?

  2. Crikey you are all up early today, I have to be at placement at 7am but 5.05 am and 5.28 what craziness is this? The sun isn’t even up at that time in the morning. Is it?


  3. Yeah it is (the sun, that is) although Chris’s clock is wrong so it’s actually half 6 not 5! I have an essay to finish on flipping public health incorporating midwifery and child care. It is horrifically boring!
    Have a good placement – what is it at the moment?

  4. Day surgery ENT, very easy pace in fact they just sent me home early to finish my essay/dissertation which is lovely. Ah yeah I see now as I was not up at 5.40 so we must have all been up at the same time how strange.

  5. It is a bit sad. I would say maybe… poignant. I think it is aiming for the “sad but ultimately uplifting” niche.

    I love eels.

    (The band, not jellied ones. They are for genuine cockneys only!)

    Molly; yes thank you for my new evil genius pic!

    I can feel myself getting more harsh and sarcastic now that is my profile picture. So I am sure we will all thank you for that.
