life outside the diamond is a wrench

Posted 02-06-2008 at 09:51 PM by Schmeg

An early birthday present was the soundtrack to Juno. I played this several times today.

Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll sail around the world
I will be your Ferdinand and you my wayward girl
How many nights of talking in hotel rooms can you take?
How many nights of limping round on pagan holidays?
Oh elope with me in private and we’ll set something ablaze
A trail for the devil to erase

San Francisco’s calling us, the Giants and Mets will play
Piazza, New York catcher, are you straight or are you gay?
We hung about the stadium, we’ve got no place to stay
We hung about the tenderloin and tenderly you tell
About the saddest ending of a book you ever had to read
The statue’s crying too and well he may

I love you I’ve a drowning grip on your adoring face
I love you my responsibility has found a place
Beside you and strong warnings in the guise of gentle words
Come wave upon me from the wider family net absurd
“You’ll take care of her, I know it, you will do a better job”
Maybe, but not what she deserves

Elope with me Miss Private and we’ll drink ourselves awake
We’ll taste the coffee houses and award certificates
A privy seal to keep the feel of 1960 style
We’ll comment on the decor and we’ll help the passer by
And at dusk when work is over we’ll continue the debate
In a borrowed bedroom virginal and spare

The catcher hits for .318 and catches every day
The pitcher puts religion first and rests on holidays
He goes into cathedrals and lies prostrate on the floor
He knows the drink affects his speed he’s praying for a doorway
Back into the life he wants and the confession of the bench
Life outside the diamond is a wrench

I wish that you were here with me to pass the dull weekend
I know it wouldn’t come to love, my heroine pretend
A lady stepping from the songs we love until this day
You’d settle for an epitaph like “Walk Away, Renee”
The sun upon the roof in winter will draw you out like a flower
Meet you at the statue in an hour
Meet you at the statue in an hour

Also Red Sox and Reds tickets were purchased. We are Sunday season pass holders for the Reds...and one of those games will be vs. the Red Sox! I am still mourning the Super Bowl and what could have been the greatest 25 seconds of football EVER, but my Red Sox report to spring training very soon, and that is soothing. Baseball season approaching means winter is ending.

Set a date...September 20. That will come FAST. I am not good at planning things, but I am very much looking forward to a big party.

New job is good. Love the people I work with.

Skating is so great. Delighted two of my girls by lending some sparkly dresses for the show next week. There will be pictures. And eventually an article in the Indy Star. Can't WAIT for that.

I'm tired of Tornado Tuesdays and it's still winter.

My dad is having some fairly major surgery tomorrow and I am trying not to freak out. Jim is coming out for the weekend and we will drown our worries in the village.

In is bumpy, but good.
