09:30 am - Han shot first, and Jimmy is back in my life
This morning, I was listening to Jimmy, something I haven't really done in a while. I admit, I take a bit of crap for playing it so often, and it does make me less likely to play it, but I've really been missing Jimmy recently.

This morning, though, was actually me listening to a cover he did of "Sail On Sailor".

I wrest the waters, fight Neptune's waters
Sail through the sorrows, of life's maurauders
Unrepenting, often empty
Sail on, sail on sailor

Like my experience with the Pinball Wizard a couple weeks ago, there was something here I hadn't heard before.

I think, though I'm not entirely certain, that I heard:


Of course, this might have to do with the line,

Heartbreaks nearing, always fearing, never caring, persevering

Because, you know, the word "persevering" appears there and all.

But last night, last night I felt truly happy as I stood in a puddle of water up to my ankles in the WalMart parking lot, holding a quart and a half of french vanilla ice cream and the DVD's of:(For those concerened about my shopping habits, the DVD's were purchased down the street at Best Buy. Only the ice cream was bought at WalMart.)

I haven't figured out why I felt so darn happy at that point. I think it was because each of those videos has a connection to friends and people I truly, deeply love, and obtaining all of them at once, and standing with them in a puddle in the rain (oh, the associations I have with rain). . . I think that was it. it was good. And it was good that it was good. And yeah, I was really very happy.

My oracle for today was simple and explicit:
209. Nobody left to blame; nobody but you.
Oh, how right you are, Jimmy. Personal responsibility is truly the deepest lesson of Buffett music for me. It's my own damn fault.

Ah, the pleasures of movie-shopping. Although I agree with the person above about the infamous "Death Star ring." It's cool and all, but that's not what I remember seeing as a kid so I feel jarred and uncomfortable seeing that high-tech graphic in my old movie. Same goes for the CGI Jabba in the Special Edition.

I'm also glad that you are finding your way out of the funk. It's no fun to be unhappy and such.

Also, I'm not sure if you've seen this, or are even interested, but people are starting to organize the 10-year DCHS reunion for next summer. I know you didn't graduate with us, but just in case you wanted to see some people from ages long past, I thought I'd pass it along. If you know anybody else who needs to hear about it, you can just pass it to them.
