Springtime in Chicago

So last spring I took a bunch of pictures of the flowers in my neighborhood and posted some of them up here.  I decided the other day to do a video with them and put a song behind it.  I chose April Showers by Caedmon’s Call.  However, instead of putting their recording in, I decided to sing it myself.  I’m not sure WHY I thought that would be a good idea, but I did it, and it’s up for the whole world to see now…yikes.  I’ve VERY self concious about singing alone.  I LOVE to sing…but usually with at least 1 other person if not more.  I prefer to harmonize rather than sing the melody, and I prefer to match the other person’s voice rather than singing in my own, because I don’t like the sound of my own voice.  Having said all that though, I present to you my video…

This cartoon is hanging up in my office…for such days as this.

It’s GORGEOUS outside!!  My window is cracked and the scent of all the blossoming trees and flowers is wafting in on the warm spring breeze.  The sun is shinging.  It’s green everywhere.  I walked outside yesterday and it seemed overnight that spring had exploded!  After yesterdays rain, everything is alive and the smell is intoxicating.  This is why I love spring so much!

So…WHY THE HELL AM I STUCK INSIDE ON A DAY LIKE THIS??????  Stupid job…stupid having to make money…*scuffs feet on the ground pouting*

I want to be out with this:

Song lyric of the week…

"I bring you pain, the kind you can’t suffer quietly/Fire up your brain remind you inside you’re rioting/Society is slipping, everythings slipping away"
