So, having been a Monkees fan for a couple of decades, I was saddened when Davy Jones passed away last week. It wasn't until a few days ago that I could bring myself to watch an episode or listen to their music again...but when I did, it made me smile so much it inspired me to make something cheerful and small and bright.
So I did a few pendants referencing their famous shirts with the double row of buttons, in the three most frequent colors they wore :-)
Well, I'm done reading damnyouautocorrect.com. Too bad, because the DYAC part of the site was good for a daily laugh, but the "wrong number" part of the site is getting far too mean-spirited and irresponsible for me to enjoy it in good conscience.
Submissions where someone gets a mis-dialed text but pretends to be the right party were never that funny anyway, but generally tolerable because they'd 'fess up after a reply or two. Now people are starting to keep up the pretense and feed strangers misinformation for hours at a time, just for their own amusement. Worst case I've seen so far was where a guy messed with someone's travel plans for an entire week before admitting to them that he wasn't who they thought they were texting.
The moderators apparently find it funny as well, or just don't care. Either way, I'm done with the whole site.
In the morning When the sun is a lonely light just over the hill When the world is awake and yet all things are still My thoughts keep returning to you as they always will
In the morning I am watching and waiting to see the sun shine And I'm feeling your presence so sweet on my mind For I know you're the love and the light of my life for all time
Juliana How your name brings me awake like the first light of dawn Juliana How it comes to the heart like the wind from the wings of a song Juliana You're my sweet heart's desire You're the face of a dream I have drawn
In the evening With the sweet orange blossoms caressing the air I stare at the sky and I see your face there With the moon in your eyes and the indigo night in your hair
