STRANGE STATE

Greetings from Connecticut. A strange state in more ways than one.

A week back in my current homeland, all of it spent ill, yet satisfyingly productive. I managed to work, make progress in my apartment, got to an early train tonight ... watch me now! (i thought that was a line from Jumping Jack Flash, but apparently not.)

I'm neither yogic nor writingic having been up since 7:00 am (shocking for me), worked, and traveled by train (not high on cocaine), and now through a couple of slow shots of Patron.

I trust I will be a better writer and a better person tomorrow.

  1. No you wont, you will be the same and or better and fantastic person and writer that you are today..Looking forward to beginning yoga class with Kira next week. Thanks for introducing me to her. I don't know if you read, but I fully credit her for Jasmine's amazing turn around

  2. I believe "Watch me now" is from "Do You Love Me" by the Contours, though probably from several other places as well.

    Lyrics:
    You broke my heart
    'Cause I couldn't dance
    You didn't even want me around
    And now I'm back, to let you know
    I can really shake 'em down

    Do you love me? (I can really move)
    Do you love me? (I'm in the groove)
    Ah do you love? (Do you love me)
    Now that I can dance (dance)

    Watch me now, oh (work, work)
    Ah, work it all baby (work, work)
    Well, you're drivin' me crazy (work, work)
    With a little bit of soul now (work)

    I can mash-potatoe (I can mash-potatoe)
    And I can do the twist (I can do the twist)
    Now tell me baby (tell me baby)
    Mmm, do you like it like this (do you like it like this)
    Tell me (tell me)
    Tell me

    Do you love me? (Do you love me)
    Now, do you love me? (Do you love me)
    Now, do you love me? (Do you love me)
    Now that I can dance (dance)

    Watch me now, oh (work, work)
    Ah, shake it up, shake it (work, work)
    Ah, shake 'em, shake 'em down (work, work)
    Ah, little bit of soul now (work)

    (work, work)
    Ah, shake it, shake it baby (work, work)
    Ah, you're driving me crazy (work, work)
    Ah, don't get lazy (work)

    I can mash-potatoe (I can mash-potatoe)
    And I can do the twist (I can do the twist)
    Well now tell me baby (tell me baby)
    Mmm, do you like it like this (do you like it like this)
    Tell me (tell me)
    Tell me

    Do you love me? (Do you love me?)
    Now, do you love me? (Do you love me?)
    Now, do you love me? (Do you love me?)
    (Now, now, now)

    (work, work)
    Ah, I'm working hard baby (work, work)
    Well, you're driving me crazy (work, work)
    And don't you get lazy (work)

    (work, work)
    Ah, hey hey baby (work, work)
    Well, you're driving me crazy (work, work)
    And don't you get lazy (work)
