I live pretty close to New Jersey, and I guess we're all about to get walloped by Hurricane Sandy, so I'm hoping no huge trees decide to fall over and punch a hole in my roof. Last winter a tree fell on the roof but the tree was the one that suffered rather than the roof. Several years ago a tree fell on a beloved '63 Volkswagon bus in my yard and demolished it. So the trees around here are a worry. My house is situated in a way such that when winds do pick up around here, it sounds like a freight train drawn by the hounds of hell. My backyard is an echo chamber.
Now for a poll.
When is it appropriate to act like a veritable fool?
a.) Whenever you feel like it.
b.) Whenever there is peer pressure involved.
c.) Whenever there is a huge hurricane and a full moon arriving on the same day.
d.) Whenever you're pretty sure that instant karma ain't gonna gitcha.
e.) Can you repeat the question?
f.) all of the above.
Fill in the blank--
Now why would I do a ________ thing like that on the way to Shambala?
Is the answer?
d.) phantasmagorical (love the definition involving the magic lantern, as if we know even know what they're talking about)
e.) all of the above
And now for a video, one of my all-time favorite songs, Shambala, actually a cover of a Daniel Moore song, apparently, done by Three Dog Night.
Now, I'm so so, SO sorry but I just have to put this one up, too--Old Fashioned Love Song
