All I Have to Do Is Dream

Tuesday, February 21, 2012

I've had cold symptoms for over a week - been taking over the counter (OTC) meds for the symptoms. On an off day last week, I took a swipe of the liquid generic nyquil type stuff (er, I didn't measure it, just swigged it). I slept most of 15 hours that day. OK, I figured I'd just overdone it on the dose. Last night, before 2200 (10P) I took 2 capsules of generic stuff, thinking that a correct dose would be fine. Sort of woke up at 0730, pottied the dogs, stumbled back to bed. Woke up when my masssage therapist called me at 1000 (I replaced my stolen phone yesterday) - I'd totally spaced our standing appointment! Grr - rescheduled for Thursday, fed the critters, took my morning meds, and back to bed. Sheesh! 1130 - get up all ready. sluggo! Guess I'm more sensitive to the stuff that I used to be.

Another Everly Brothers hit from 1958, written by Felice and Boudleaux Bryant.


Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
When I want you in my arms
When I want you and all your charms
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream



When I feel blue in the night
And I need you to hold me tight
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam



I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I'm dreamin' my life away



I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam



I can make you mine, taste your lips of wine
Anytime night or day
Only trouble is, gee whiz
I'm dreamin' my life away



I need you so that I could die
I love you so and that is why
Whenever I want you, all I have to do is
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream


FADE
Drea-ea-ea-ea-eam, dream, dream, dream

    It can happen without any warning becoming sensitive or allergic to medicine. I had some dental work done a couple of years ago, and he prescribed amococilyn (sp) and I broke out in hives. Up until then I had no problem taking it. At least you figured it out now while staying at home and not driving.

That'll Be the Day

Monday, February 20, 2012

I used to think this was a love song ... now I'm wondering if he's a stalker??? The Everly Brothers, 1965


Well, that'll be the day, when you say goodbye
Yes, that'll be the day, when you make me cry
You say you're gonna leave, you know it's a lie
'Cause that'll be the day when I die



Well, you give me all your loving and your turtle doving
All your hugs and kisses and your money too
Well, you know you love me baby, until you tell me, maybe
That some day, well I'll be through



Well, when Cupid shot his dart he shot it at your heart
So if we ever part and I leave you
You sit and hold me and you tell me boldly
That some day, well I'll be blue



Well, that'll be the day, woo hoo
That'll be the day, woo hoo
That'll be the day, woo hoo
That'll be the day

    I never gave it any thought, just danced to it, but maybe he was a narcissist and thought she would never leave cause he's so great

Cathy's Clown

Sunday, February 19, 2012

The Everly Brothers recorded this one in 1960.

Don't want your love any more
Don't want your kisses that's for sure
I die each time I hear the sound
Here he comes, that's Cathy's clown



I gotta stand tall
You know a man can't crawl
For when he knows he's telling lies
And he lets them pass on by
He's not a man at all


Don't want your love any more
Don't want your kisses that's for sure
I die each time I hear the sound
Here he comes, that's Cathy's clown



When you see me shed a tear
And when you know that it's sincere
Don't you think it's kind of sad
That you're treating me so bad
Or don't you even care


Don't want your love any more
Don't want your kisses that's for sure
I die each time I hear the sound
Here he comes, that's Cathy's clown

Teddy Bear

Saturday, February 18, 2012

Another Elvis classic from 1957

Baby let me be,
your lovin' Teddy Bear
Put a chain around my neck,
and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be
Your teddy bear.



I don't wanna be a tiger
Cause tigers play too rough


I don't wanna be a lion
'Cause lions ain't the kind
you love enough.


Just wanna be, your Teddy Bear
Put a chain around my neck
and lead me anywhere
Oh let me be
Your teddy bear.


Baby let me be, around you every night
Run your fingers through my hair,
And cuddle me real tight

Locking the Barn Door ...

Friday, February 17, 2012

After the horse is stolen.

Usually, I carry my cellphone in my pocket - but I was charging it on the desk.

Usually, I close the door to triage if I'm not in there - but I forgot.

Lots of people cut through the triage room (not supposed to) while I was helping out in the main Emergency Department.

So, at 0300, I noticed the charger wasn't plugged into the phone - then I noticed the phone was missing. Tried to call it - no joy. Tried using the iPad "find my iPhone" app - came back "unable to locate". Called ATT and deactivated my service. I already had a lock on the phone. Sigh. ATT can send me a new one for $375, or "add a line" for $30/month. Hmmm - going to check out the Apple store, Best Buy, Ebay, whatever. Sigh. I sent a message to the day people warning them - tonight, no one had left their phones on the counters (yesterday, there were about 5 scattered around the unit).

    So sorry about your phone. That's so awful the way it "disappeared"like that. What a mean thing for someone to do to you. I had a Android that I liked that I accidentally left on the top of my car at the end of a hike while putting my stuff in the car. Realized it about 15 minutes down the road and I drove back looking for it on the road, by the side of the road, all the way to the trailhead and couldn't find it anywhere. I think it fell off in the parking lot and someone got it before I got back to look for it although it wasn't very long. I watched the paper for days to see if anyone had put a notice in that they had found it. I did have an older phone that I transferred my service too that s nice but not quite as good as the one I lost. I wish if someone had found it they would have either put an add in the paper or put it on a fence post or somewhere expecting the owner to go back for it. There were about 6 or 7 cars at the trailhead that day. I hope you find a good deal on one soon but it's still not the same as the one that was stolen. Especially if you're like me and have a lot of my life on it.

    I hope you locate your phone or can get a new one for a lot less than $375.00.

    emoticon cell phones are scary...used to be, the phone companies charged you for any call made until you cancelled service...even if stolen.
