I'm so tired of being lonely!

"I'm so tired of being alone
I'm so tired of on-my-own
Won't you help me girl
Just as soon as you can"

The legendary words of Al Green, I am going to buy one of his albums preferably this one with Tired of Being Lonely on it, I shall paly it to the socks, those single ones waiting for their second one to be complete.

I have ordered a copy of that unimitable (we should be thankful for small mercies) cult classic Showgirls on DVD, not just any DVD. This is the special edition box set complete with shot glasses and Pin The Pasties On The Showgirl game. Now how is that for a crazy whirly gig of fun???? THAT WOMAN! (aka Ms Stash) has declared this is an illness and there is nothing left for it but to get me thearpy.

I have started a new project with my Sea Urchin yarn from the Black Stitch using the Bowhunter Wristwarmer pattern, also from the Black Stitch.

At least four of my co-workers have defected to Ms Stash's new workplace. Although one of the other girls I trained with, there was 4 of us. One quit before we'd even finished training, another seems to have gone, but I don't know if she's found more permanent or full-time work somewhere or if she's just had jack (I know I have, but alas there are still another 2 seasons of Matt Hardy's public displays of tom foolery which could still come out on DVD, he's showing currently Season4 on his website and we're only up to Season 2 on DVD.)

Did anybody else see Love Tunnel on Wednesday night??? I did love it, so much for Goodbye Cruel World ( I'm Off To Join The Circus), it will be Thank God I Am Outta Here Boogelly Job (I Am Going To Join The Funfair!).
Lucy Jordan may never have got to Paris because of husband and kids, but I will not let my boogelly job stand between me and my Paris!

I don't know Marianne's entire back catalogue but I do know a few, and I love them!! I know the 'Goodbye Cruel World' song too!! I have the carnie people show on the hard drive to watch when I am up to it. The clips looked very good!!
There were no beans, nothing amounted to a hill of beans, not even a mole hill of beans. That kitten is willful!!!
Oh, what are you kitting now?? I have just finished a sock tonight: 2 more whole socks and I have finished 4 pairs!!!
Drive through Paris 'on the inside'. It is sad but true you need the filthy lucre for the things you love!!!
Run off and join the circus later on!!!

Did you run off and join the circus yet? I think it would be fun but now I can't stand to sit out in the cold and damp in a tent anywhere. I hope your socks don't stay lonely too long. The temptation to wear them unmatched will grow, you know........ heehee

Isn't it funny how songs mean more at certain times, I find a lot of songs 'speak to me' and at the moment it is Run of the Mill by George Harrison. Why, I am not real sure because I think it is about a relationship that is over which he wrote when the Beatles were breaking up so it might have more to do with that than a love affair. Maybe it is just the whole melody of the song?!?!

I must admit that I don't know the song that you mentioned, I will go and see if I can find it and have a listen.

I can't wait to see your new project.
