Yesterday was the weirdest day!! O_O I felt...all day!...like maybe I needed to find me a new planet to live on because this one had slipped sideways or something!...Does that happen to other people besides me?!....that feeling like everything...and everybody...has gone wacky?!!!
The phone kept ringing off the hook all day...waking me up from my naps! Grrrrr! You KNOW how much I treasure my naps!! ^_^ And when I answered it, the conversations seemed like darts being thrown at a dartboard that was invisible!! Everything I said was misunderstood, and everything they said made NO SENSE to me!! I kept saying: "Excuse me?"....."Say again!"....."What?!!!!!" O_0
I finally gave up trying to carry on conversations with people. I stopped answering the phone!...But that didn't stop people from calling!! LOL They still called....and they left messages!....that were garbled and non-discipherable!... O_O ...except for the part where they would said: "Call me back". ^_^ "Uhhhhh...No! I don't think I will...whoever you are!....and whatever you're talking about!"
Then hubby came running in the house hollering for the camera! I said: "What is it?!" O_O ......No answer.....UGH!!!...Then he came back in the house with un-decipherable photos!!....UGH!...Again I said: "What is it?!"....He did that shake with his whole body like when you get a cold shiver, and then he said: "Let me go and take another picture. I forgot to put the macro on....But I'M NOT GETTING THAT CLOSE TO IT ANYWAY!!!!! EWWWWWWWWW!!!!"
Now I was scared, and worried about what was in the backyard that he'd be all squeamish about! O_O ... Wanna see what it was?!
Yikes!!!!....It was right up next to the house!!!! O_O
Big head thing!!!!!!
Where did this come from?!!! O_O We've never had snakes in the backyard before...that I remember anyway!...We've had cats, squirrels, turtles, robins, mockingbirds, hummingbirds,....;'_'; my hummingbirds!!!!!! ;'_'; ...dogs, skunks, and even a rabbit here or there! I even had a fear that a black bear might visit...but it didn't...But never a snake!
I know Massachusetts has snakes...even poisonous snakes...Yikes! Could this be a poisonous snake?!....If any of you know what kind of snake this is, please let me know. I don't even wanna Google it!!!
As of last night he was still laying there immovable. Hubby thinks he was dead, but I know...from experience...that snakes are cold-blooded. If the temperature changes on them too suddenly they become immovable until their blood warms up again...And we did have that quick snow shower yesterday! O_O
I'm trying to talk hubby into going back out there this morning to see if he's still there, but he is TOO THROUGH with that snake!!! ^_^ The mere suggestion that he get a stick and move him up closer to the woods started another one of those garbled conversations everybody was trying to have with me yesterday!!!...So, I guess I'll find out later whether he's still there or not...Probably when I hear the neighbor kids cutting through the yard! ^_^ Yikes! The kids!!!!....Suppose it's poisonous?!!!....Alright! He's got to move that snake!!!!......Aargh!
If that wasn't bad enough.....there I was watching a movie, trying to return to a calm mental state, when a scroll came across the t.v.......Whitney Houston......dead at 48........What?!.........What?! O_O
I went to CNN and found out.....it's true! Whitney Houston died last night....*sigh*...All I could think of was that line in the song "American Pie" by Don McLean,.....that convoluted song I never really understood completely before...and still don't!!....but the line that talked about 'the day the music died' came to my mind...She was a fantastic voice, that Whitney Houston!
So, I'll leave today's post with her voice....and a hope that today turns out to be a non-weird, calm and peaceful place!...Have a good day everybody. I hope it includes some good music too.....Where would we be without it?!...
Where would we be without music?
Where would we be without music?
Don't answer. I don't want to know!
The thought of no guitar or back beat,
no humming or tapping of toe!
What umph would there be to commercials?
What excitement for games yet to play?!
What missing movie's anticipation
that the 'Dun Dun Dun' would happily say?!
How would new mommies rock their babies,
and calm them to put them to sleep?
Without music the world would be screaming,
but the ocean of silence would be deep.
So, where would we be without music?
In a world with no brain cells to link.
In a big room with nothing to do,
and a bunch of poor folks that don't blink!
