So the theme for this week's American Idol is "songs from the year you were born". Hmm...should be interesting. None of the contestants are the same age I am, so we won't hear any songs from '89, but there are some cool ones from that year! Well, fairly cool, in a weird eighties sort of way. Like:
We Didn't Start the Fire ~Billy Joel
Orinoco Flow ~Enya
Free Falling ~Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
Runnin' Down a Dream
I Won't Back Down
And a whole list of songs from '89, I only recognized about thirty of them.
So there...I feel younger now...after being told on Sunday that I was really old. "Wow, you're old! You're going to be nineteen in September? Man..." and then from an eight-year-old, "Yeah, because nineteen is almost twenty!" And when you're eight, twenty is just about dead I guess! :p
Uh...hmm...do I act old for my age? I can see where they're coming from, I mean once you're eighteen you're officially an adult and you can get married and stuff, and I do occasionally feel very old thinking about that, because it isn't quite the same as when you were younger. I didn't think people started going on about that until you were like thirty or forty though! :D
So, yeah, I think I'll go take a nap...I get tired so easily these days. It's just not like being thirteen...these young people you know, they just run around non-stop. I can't do that... ;)
Oh, and I smelled the magnolia flowers when I went out to get the mail, and they smell very good. Not as strong as a big magnolia, more like honeysuckle. And I'm sure it was a funny sight for anyone who saw me trying to hold onto the pile of mail and bend in half to smell the flowers, because that tree's really only about a foot and a half tall! :p And we got a bunch of slippery catalogs in the mail...
