Music Mania

The greatness of a man is not in how much wealth he acquires, but in his integrity and his ability to affect those around him positively.  - Bob Marley

Part of staying well in my mind is staying positive.  I like to play games with music and lyrics.  I hear a sentence and put it to a familiar tune, or hear a familiar tune and put new lyrics to it - it gets pretty funny inside my head sometimes!

My weird brain has been working overtime today.  This morning my color ink cartridge ran completely dry.  As I was changing the cartridge I sang, "Put the car-tridge in the prin-ter" - in place of the words "And a par-tridge in a pear tree." 

Later in the day, I took a CD out that I just burned.  As I put it in the clear Jewel case, I began singing, "Jewel-y, Jewel-y, Jewel-y do ya love me?"  The actual lyrics are, of course, "Ju-lie, Ju-lie, Ju-lie do ya love me?" 

It's a common occurrence in this house to see a grocery list with items such as oyster quackers or batroom tissue written on it.  I don't typically let all the weird stuff my brain makes up slip verbally.  So, making up silly songs is kind of a new manifestation of sorts.   

How could it escalate to this degree?  I mean, I'm basically butchering perfectly wonderful songs with little or no effort these days!  Have I been isolated socially for too long?  Is there hope that I can possibly re-enter society without a total overhaul or a return to charm school?  I don't know.  Is there hope that I can salvage just a sliver of decorum before exiting my sanctuary house to go out into the world?  What if I'm beyond help?  

Time will tell - but until I have the opportunity to test my wings outside my fortress, I will probably continue to put strange lyrics with familiar tunes and sing at the top of my lungs (as long as nobody is around).  The last time I checked, singing is a sign of happiness and happiness is not a bad thing.

"Don't Worry - Be Happy".


Today is CRUSH A CAN DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!  What can I say?  Knock yourselves out - no, not literally!  Be careful when trying to crush a can on your head.  I know some of you think your head is indestructible, but it isn't.  No, trust me, it is not!
