Why can’t people just________?

I found myself asking this question, my fill in the blank was communicate. Then I stopped and thought, (i love those moments!), People say this line all the time with something of their own in the blank. I think that the fill in the blanks are what your strength is, and when you find other people not excelling at that thing, you blurt this out. I mean, its easy to me, it make sense to me, i am actually pretty darn good at it too. Why can’t you be?

Why can’t people just get along? Why can’t people just move faster? Why can’t people just pick up after themsleves? why can’t people just not be so sensitive? why can’t people just RSVP? why can’t people just shut their mouths sometimes? why can’t people just mind their own business? why can’t people just organize their stuff? why can’t people just listen better? why can’t people just be honest? why can’t people just be on time? why can’t people just throw their trash away? why can’t people just change?

oh wait, another cause for this question could be that my will is crossing your will and “they aint gettin along”. I want to hurry up and get home, ” why can’t people just put their foot on the gas?”

I just arrived home this evening, from Santa Cruz. After dropping J off in Oakland to fly down see his bros. But we couldnt find our cam battery plug, so it didnt make the trip, as Josiah said ” we will have to wonderful memories without it”. But he did manage to take a few pics from his blackberry, i cant recall how many times i said, “oh! i wish i had the cam!”, but the ones i post will have to suffice. until then enjoy my other alias’s…

A Shout out to Jake Armerding

Fortunatley he is on Itunes, and I have to say he is refreshingly origional and talented. Who is he? One of Josiah’s old roomies from College. I liken his tunes to those of John Mayer and the the like. Smooth, gentle, origional, relaxing, and endearing. Here are the words to one of the songs J and I like to play for eachother:

Falling In

In a deep, dark pub in the back of London
I fell in love and I lost my cool
With a beer in hand and the jukebox humming
A little Liverpool

We all went out on a Thursday evening
And I just tried to be myself
But the drinks got poured and the talk got flowing
And I was someone else

Hey, could you make up your heart
I’d like to begin
Love is spreading her arms
I’m falling in

Her cheeks were red and her hair was crimson
Her eyes would laugh and her mouth would smile
And I washed in her like a river Jordan
For a little while

My heart was young with an old demeanor
My heart was grey and my heart was bored
But you never know it until you’ve seen her
What you’re looking for

She’s the patch of grass underneath my snowfall
In my iron sky she’s a streak of blue
She’s the toes of the trees underneath my sidewalk
And she’s breaking through
You’re breaking through

curious? click on this posts title to listen in at Itunes… what do you think?

sac zoo

A  was very excited about all the animals, that she could see anyway. We went to the monkeys first which was fun cause she has a favorite pet “stuffed” monkey that we play with all the time


They put on quite a show for her.

Here is the Jaguar that wasn’t as ambitious. She also saw a giraffe up close,

tortiose, lemurs, addax, lion, and ant eater. She waved very politely at them all!

We will have to come back for the snakes and crocodiles! Posted by Picasa
