Knocked Over By A Feather

But It Didn't Keep Me Down…

You’ll Think of Me

I was working as a dietary aide/cook at a nursing home when this song came out. The morning cook always had the radio set on the local country station. Since the cook was always in charge of the music, I didn’t have much of a choice.

When I was the cook, I listened to the classic rock station.

Anyway, I heard this fucking song at least 6 times a day. I’ll admit that I liked it, since it was extremely catchy and Keith Urban’s voice sounded truly heartbroken.

I always thought it was “take your cat but leave my sweater.” Turns out he was saying “cap.”

I must have tucked this song away inside one of my brains crawl spaces for future reference.



You’ll Think of Me by Keith Urban¬† 2004

I woke up early this morning around 4am
With the moon shining bright as headlights on the interstate
I pulled the covers over my head and tried to catch some sleep
But thoughts of us kept keeping me awake
Ever since you found yourself in someone else’s arms
I’ve been tryin’ my best to get along
But that’s OK
There’s nothing left to say, but

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories, I don’t need’em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you’ll think of me
And take your cap and leave my sweater
‘Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
But you’ll think of me, you’ll think of me

I went out driving trying to clear my head
I tried to sweep out all the ruins that my emotions left
I guess I’m feeling just a little tired of this
And all the baggage that seems to still exist
It seems the only blessing I have left to my name
Is not knowing what we could have been
What we should have been
So

Take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories, I don’t need’em
Take your space and take your reasons
But you’ll think of me
And take your cap and leave my sweater
‘Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
But you’ll think of me

Someday I’m gonna run across your mind
But don’t worry, I’ll be fine
I’m gonna be alright
While you’re sleeping with your pride
Wishing I could hold you tight
I’ll be over you
And on with my life

So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories, I don’t need’em
And take your cap and leave my sweater
‘Cause we have nothing left to weather
In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
But you’ll think of me

So take your records, take your freedom
Take your memories, I don’t need’em
Take your space and all your reasons
But you’ll think of me
And take your cap and leave my sweater
‘Cause we got nothing left to weather
In fact I’ll feel a whole lot better
But you’ll think of me, you’ll think of me, yeah

And you’re gonna think of me
Oh someday baby, someday

I’m an ISFP

puzzle-head-e1446572286960

According to an online personality test that I took, I’m an ISFP.

What the hell does that mean? Glad that you asked!

Patient, tolerant, and easy-going, you have a strong core of deep personal values which you use to guide you through life. In your everyday state, you are mild and harmonic and you prefer to meet people in an open and trusting exchange where each of you makes a sincere effort to understand and tolerate the other, seeing each other for what you really are and refraining from imposing foreign and customary expectations and stereotypes upon each other. Deeply passionate about your own projects, and sometimes slow to open up to others, you may at times come across as reserved and delicate to those who do not know you well. On the inside, however, you tend to harbor a deep-running river of values and warmth which you seek to be true to above all. In fact, though your usual outer demeanor usually appears laid-back and flexible, you can become positively perfectionist in the service of those inner ideals that you passionately regard as your own. Since you are more attuned to being true to your own values than to hashing out right and wrong in contentious debates, your natural mode of socialization appears to be one of “live and let live” in which you seek harmony and mutual respect with others so that they may in turn respect you and the values that are pivotal to your inner life. However, the world may not always reciprocate your goodwill in kind, and it is for this reason that you prefer to remain a bit on your guard until you can be sure they will accept you for who you really are.

I agree with 85% of this mini version of my basic personality traits, but only because I don’t really like to give anything my 100% these days, due to personal reasons.

The three statements that I agree with the most are:

“Deeply passionate about your own projects, and sometimes slow to open up to others, you may at times come across as reserved and delicate to those who do not know you well.”

“In fact, though your usual outer demeanor usually appears laid-back and flexible, you can become positively perfectionist in the service of those inner ideals that you passionately regard as your own.”

“…the world may not always reciprocate your goodwill in kind, and it is for this reason that you prefer to remain a bit on your guard until you can be sure they will accept you for who you really are.”

I am a friendly, caring person. I cry easily at things like Bambi’s mom getting shot, when the chick died at the end of the movie “Love Story” and I donate a dollar for whatever the cause is that a cashier is asking money for.

Every fucking time.

I hold doors open for people, I smile, I chitchat, I tip well, I thank people. I tell the people that I love that I love them.

“There’s a thin line between love and hate.” -My mom


I am a hard person to get to really know because I am a highly sensitive person who is easily hurt. I keep my walls up pretty high. If someone wants to truly get into my inner sactum, they have to work for it. Rarely do I chase people down for their attention.

My favorite kind of person is someone who can keep up with my sarcasm, wit and love of song lyrics.

I’m not an ass kisser and I never have been. I don’t suck up to people. Either we click or we don’t. It’s all good. Be cool to me, I’ll be cool to you. It’s simple as 1 2 3, A B C.

I really am polite and that’s because of my parents. I am old school and believe that you should respect your elders, although I do think that you shouldn’t always do what they tell you. It’s your life to do with as you please. That’s how I’ve tried to raise my kid, there are so many choices in life and I will never judge her. 

I was diagnosed with OCD before the age of 10. I can be a hardcore perfectionist sometimes, but I’ve gotten much better at controling it.

I am pretty chill for the most part. I do agree with “live and let live.” Go ahead and dye your hair green, as long as you’re not hurting someone, fuck it.

If you feel so inclined (about 15 minutes, for me anyway) take this test by clicking here.

And I really have no idea what each letter stands for, but at least it looks cool.

A Gentle Reminder From Pope Francis

I haven’t been a Catholic since I was about 14, but I really do dig Pope Francis.

This life will go by fast.

Don’t fight with people, don’t criticize your body so much, don’t complain so much.¬†

Don’t lose sleep over your bills. Look for the person that makes you happy. If you make a mistake, let it go and keep seeking your happiness.

Never stop being a good parent. Don’t worry so much about buying luxuries and comforts for your home, and don’t kill yourself trying to leave an inheritance for your family. Those benefits should be earned by each person, so don’t dedicate yourself to accumulating money.

Enjoy, travel, enjoy your journeys, see new places, give yourself the pleasures you deserve. Allow dogs to get closer. Don’t put away the fine glassware. Utilize the new dinnerware; don’t save your favorite perfume, use it to go out with yourself; wear out your favorite sport shoes; repeat your favorite clothes.

So what? That’s not bad. Why not now? Why not pray now instead of waiting until before you sleep? Why not call now? Why not forgive now? We wait so long for Christmas; for Friday; for Reunions; for another year; for when I have money; for love to come; when everything is perfect…look…

Everything perfect doesn’t exist. Human beings can’t accomplish this because it simply was not intended to be completed here. Here is an opportunity to learn.

So take this challenge that is life and do it now…love more, forgive more, embrace more, love more intensely and leave the rest in God’s hands.

Amen.
