In a crazy and unheard of triple play, a third song is ruling my iPod in this all powerful triumvirate.

She was waiting at the station
He was getting off the train
He didnt have a ticket so he had to bum through the barriers again.
Well the ticket inspector saw him rushing through
He said girl you don’t know how much I missed you but
We’d better run cos’ I havent got the funds to pay this fine.
She said fine.

Well so they ran out of the station and jumped onto a bus With two of yesterdays travel cards and two bottles of Bud,
And he said you look well nice.
Well she was wearing a skirt
And he thought she looked nice
And yeah, she didnt really care about anything else
Because she only wanted him to think that she looked nice,
And he did.

But he was looking at her, yeah all funny in the eye.
She said come on boy tell me what your thinking,
Now dont be shy.
He said alright, I’ll try.
All the stars up in the sky and the leaves in the trees,
All the broken bits that make you trip up and grassy bits in between.
All the matter in the world is how much I like you.

She said what?
He said let me try and explain again.

Right, birds can fly so high, or they can shit on your head,
Yeah they can almost fly into your eye and make you feel so scared.
But when you look at them, and you see that they’re beautiful,
That’s how i feel about you.
Right birds can fly so high or they can shit on your head,
Yeah they can almost fly into your eye and make you feel well scared.
But when you look at them, and you see that they’re beautiful,
That’s how i feel about you.
Yeah thats how i feel about you

She said what?
He said you.
She said what are you talking about?
He said you.

Right birds can fly so high or they can shit on your head
Yeah they can almost fly into your eye and make you feel so scared.
But when you look at them, and you see that they’re beautiful,
That’s how i feel about you.
Right birds can fly so high or they can shit on your head,
Yeah they can almost fly into your eye and make you feel well scared.
But when you look at them, and you see that they’re beautiful,
That’s how i feel about you.
Right, thats how i feel about you.

She said thanks, I like you too.
He said cool.

Kinda an odd song to read like that, you have to hear it to really get it. Check Kate Nash out here.

Hot on the heels of my last post, this is also ruling my iPod currently:

La la la
La la la

I’m starting to believe boy,
that this is meant to be boy
’cause I believe in karma,
boy, do you believe in karma?

So forget about your past life,
’cause this could be our last life
We’re gonna reach nirvana, boy,
we’re gonna reach nirvana

Each time you put your lips to mine,
it’s like a taste of Buddha’s Delight
I see the gates of paradise,
you’re a taste of Buddha’s Delight
Tell me all your fantasies tonight,
and I will make them happen
’cause I’m not satisfied if I don’t get my Buddha’s delight

Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti

Like sitting meditation,
you give me elevation
Can you take me higher?
Wonder can you take me higher?

I want a revelation,
and sweet salvation
And the eternal fire,
show me the eternal fire

Each time you put your lips to mine,
it’s like a taste of Buddha’s delight
I see the gates of paradise,
you’re a taste of Buddha’s delight
Tell me all your fantasies tonight,
and I will make them happen
’cause I’m not satisfied if I don’t get my Buddha’s delight

Om shanti shanti
Om shanti shanti

I’ve got to have my Buddha’s delight (Om shanti shanti)
I’ve got to have my Buddha’s delight (Om shanti shanti)
Ahhhhhhhh ahhhhhhhhhh ahhhhhhhhh……

Each time you put your lips to mine,
it’s like a taste of Buddha’s delight
I see the gates of paradise,
you’re a taste of Buddha’s delight
Tell me all your fantasies tonight,
and I will make them happen
’cause I’m not satisfied if I don’t get my Buddha’s delight
La la la

This is off the “Music and Lyrics” soundtrack, a movie I’ve yet to see, but this some makes me want to go rent it.

 I can’t get this song out of my head…

V1
I don’t get you . .
I can’t forget what you’ve forgotten
all along
I’ve never been so alone

B-section
Don’t Cry Out
Cease Fire

V2
I was pretending
Your secret kiss of confidence
Was my escape
The perfect game to play…

Chorus
Ten nine eight and I’m breaking away
I’m all dressed up and I’m ready to play
Seven six five four and I’m all over you
Counting three two one and I’m having fun…

V3
Your fascination
With naked walls of silk and skin
With no conditions
I needed you to notice….
That’s all I wanted

May 23, 2007

Lots of stuff went on this weekend. Charlie turned 21 on Friday, so there was birthday dinner that night. Then Saturday we went to the lake with a bunch of people and went jet skiing, and subsequently got sunburned. And then that night I threw him a surprise party, which went swimmingly. Sunday I spent staining the deck and studying for my Stats final, and then Monday taking my final and finishing the deck. And there it is.

Mel and I got a fairly timely podcast episode up for Blonde on the Inside, which was pretty rockin’. I picked up Edward to record with us, which was a blast. I don’t get to see him too often because every time I’m going to hang out with him something comes up or I already have plans. But we listened to music and drove around and fought over the “Track Change” button, generally having a fun time. The song “White Houses” by Vanessa Carlton came on as I was driving him home after recording, and it’s a song that really reminds me of the summer he and I met and hung out for most of the summer (dated for 3 weeks at one point too lol). It was a fun nostalgic feeling, and we were both just singing along with the song with the windows down. It’s nice to have someone that I dated a long time ago and yet still be such good friends now.

Monday found me doing my final in my voice class too, which I actually surprised myself in. I’ve never really thought I was a great singer, but I sang a Nicaraguan lullaby called “Nino Precioso” and my teacher wasvery complementary. And a professional operatic trainer who has been all around the country saying that you have a great voice and should persue it is a little strange. But he reccomended that I check out some community theatres and go do some auditions and try to get into a show, and I haven’t decided whether or not I’m going to. I really want to keep working with my voice, since singing has been one of the most fun musical things I’ve tried so far (next to marching band lol), but I don’t know if I want to go into musical theatre. So I have lots of research to do, might look into private solo lessons at one point, might just work on my own, but I’m definitely planning to stick with it.

I am totally rockin’ out to the Aladdin soundtrack at work right now. It’s taking all I have not to sing out loud. It may be one of my gayer traits, but I love me some Disney!

So its been a day or two since I’ve posted, but as per usual there’s not a whole lot going on. I’ve been helping re-build our 1,200 square foot deck, which has been interesting. I like building things and its a good experience.

Also, Charlie and I took a trip to a really romantic little bed & breakfast here in Sacramento called The Amber House. You can check out some pictures and my Mediagasm review of it here.

Other than that, the only other especially blog-worthy thing is that I got myself a gym membership last Thursday. I went on Tuesday for the first time and then again yesterday, and I’m planning to go yet again tonight. Charlie is helping me to learn the things I need to do to lose the weight I’ve wanted to lose for YEARS (not to mention the 20 lbs I’ve gained since my car accident) and gain muscle at the same time. By far my favorite thing so far are the elliptical machines. I pretty much despise running, but the elliptical is so low impact and the time goes by so fast on it that I’m dripping sweat within 10 minutes and still feel good. I aim to be slimmed down to more where I want to be by mid summer, since I’ll be going up to 7 days in a week, a minimum of 5. Here are my measurements at the moment:

Height: 5’10”
Weight: 180 lbs
Chest: 40″
Actual Waist (I wear my jeans on my hips): 39″
BMI: 26.2%
I plan to get these measurements WAY down and finally be more satisfied with my body. I’ve disliked my body for years but never really did to much about it. Until now! I’m actually writing a weekly article over at GenerationQ.net about it. It’s an interesting human interest thing and also forces me into a measure of accountability.

Ok well I’ll cut this blog post off here, but I’m making a concerted effort to make myself post more often. No one really reads this, but it’s nice to have things that are going on on my life recorded down so I can look back on everything and remember what happened when.

Later days!

Can’t Sleep…

August 21, 2006

For some weird reason, I can’t seem to fall asleep. I’m in Jenn’s room at Mel’s house, so the unfamiliar room might be part of it.

It’s been a while since the last time I posted, for various reasons, but I’m pretty sure I’m back to stay. I plan to do a little work on overhauling my journal’s look and such, freshening it up a LOT.


Tomorrow is the first day of the new semester of school, so I’m pretty excited for that. I’m spending the night at Mel’s house so that she and I can carpool the first day and I don’t have to wake up quite so early. We did face masques and i clipped my nails and got all groomed so as to make a good impression. I’m really optimistic about this semester, my classes seem interesting, my professors fair, and my outlook on meeting new people is positive and energetic. I have my outfit for tomorrow all laid out and ready to go.

Today Charlie and I finally got some much needed alone time. My parents left at like 8:45 to go sailing with a friend on the SF Bay, and Charlie got to my house at 9. After spending some time together we took off for the State Fair, which was kinda fun. The best part was being able to go with him, the fair itself was lacking. Though we went on a ride together and I had a good time. Afterward he took me to Elephant Bar down the street for lunch and I had a GREAT burger. He had to be home earlier than I would have liked for his dad’s birthday dinner, but thats totally fine.

However gay of me it may be, I’m really liking what I’ve heard of Christina Aguilera’s new album “Back to Basics.” I love the classic jazz era and the attitude she brings to the genre and the way its blended with modern styles as well is great. I was really surprised at how emotional and real-sounding the songs “Hurt” and “The Right Man” ended up being. And the song “Nasty Naughty Boy” makes me think of someone in a Moulin Rouge-like costume crawling sexily along a dinner table, stop and take a sip of a wine glass, throw it at the wall, and be all sexy-like. But that’s just me. =)

Friday is my 19th birthday!! I’m only excited because Charlie apparently has some plans for it, and that’s never happened for me before! So I’m telling my family that they have until 3 PM, and after that I’m going out with friends. They can push the birthday dinner back to Sunday. I got my first present yesterday too. My parents bought me a brand new cell phone since my Sidekick II kinda konked out on me. I’ll have a new number in November because of the way we swung the deal, but for now I’m using my Samsung t509 with my same number.


I would kinda like to change this blog from a personal diatribe to something a little more hybrid-ized. Right now it’s simply an outlet for my personal ravings, but with my desire to do more serious writing, this seems like it would be a good alternative outlet for that. Any input or ideas are more than welcome. Lately I haven’t had a whole lot of material on which to write, and posting news articles I’ve written just onto my LJ seems like a bit of a waste. But we’ll see. Now that it’s a LOT more convenient for me to post to this, I’ll be doing it a lot more often. Hopefully given time it will become something I’m a little more happy with.

Anyway, it’s now officially way too late for me to be awake, so I’m going to try to head off to sleep. Catch you all later!

Woot

June 19, 2005

I just might be getting a hang of this whole updating thing!

Yesterday I went to the mall with Melissa and Jenn and had a blast! “JELLIES!!!” I did some theraputic shopping, got a ring from Pac Sun, 2 pairs of cheap sunglasses, and an outfit all on sale from Express so I can look professional for my interview tomorrow at Mimi’s. Then i worked and it was dumb and my manager is kinda a douche.

Today i went to church with the parents and grandma and then came home and helped start on the staining of the decks. It’s gonna be a long week.

I think i’m over the breakup, or getting there. I’m still kinda wondering if “personal problems” was the real reason, but it doesnt matter. I’m ready to get back into the dating thing, but I know if i TRY, i’ll end up in this situation again, but if i don’t ill get frustrated. I hate sitting around not doing anything. So its a dilemma for now.

Anyway, Josh Groban is making me melty inside at the moment, so I’m gonna jet.

Hello Again, friend!

May 31, 2005

My how long it has been! I notice a pattern of me writing in this for a while then not for a long time then coming back and startign an entry with something like “Wow! It’s been a long time!”

So I’m no longer in High School, which is awesome, though I don’t think it’s hit me yet. Graduation was great, and Grad Night was awesome, even though I got home at 6:30, and had to wake up at 10:30 to make it down to Sac. So after a weekend of parties and family and driving and sleep deprivation, I’m slightly sleepy.

I have a boyfriend! After… what is it… 10 MONTHS. I’ve dated in that time but it never got the title. As of yesterday, I, Luke Miller, am no longer single. And hes intelligent, beautiful, complex, intriguing, talented as all hell, and amazing. Infatuated much…? We’ve hung out lately and I kinda fell hard, and It’s nice to know that it wasn’t futile for once. His singing entrances me every time I hear it. Yep.

I spent $35 on a hat today. I found a pink and grey Von Dutch hat on Amazon and decided to be impulsive and buy it. I also discovered a new band I love on iTunes and downloaded their CD. Everyone go get the CD “Phantoms” by Acceptance, its grand. I also downloaded the Incredibles soundtrack, which is hot.

So I’m rambling now. Nite!

Im officially addicted to The Postal Service.
The band.
Not the governmental institution.

Work is going really well.
New guys are training up really nice.
I think I got the guy i don’t really like either reprimanded or fired.
Which he really needs.

Easy day for school tomorrow.
T.A.
Peer Counseling (I Feel Day and getting Winter Ball pics, WOO!)
Band (I have my challenge tomorrow. Not too worried)

Car isnt back yet.
Wont fire up.
Hopefully my miracle worker dad will get it working tomorrow.
I must have it by sunday.
I won’t be happy if I don’t.

Sunday is too far away.
Don’t know what we’re doing yet.
Doesn’t especially matter what we do.
Just hanging out is enough for me.

Fin.

=D

~lol…it was “well, since i gave you a hug, you have to give me a kiss”~

=D

I’m in a very smiley mood.
First time in quite a while that this subject has made me smile so much.
You know who you are and what you did. =)

The word “twitterpated” comes to mind.
Gracias Bambi.

=P

Assessment testing for college today.
ARC is so close.
High school will end in a few months time.
And though Ive said I’m ready so much and so often, i dont know if i am.
High School has has pain.
Tears.
Heartbreak and heartache.
Harsh realities of its own.
But at the same time it has had joy.
Love.
Friends.
Fun.
Amazingly positive life lessons.
And Im not sure if im ready to leave.
After this summer, I wont see so many of you guys ever again.
So many people are eager to get out of here, me included.
I only wish we could all somehow get out of here together.

i was running late for work
so i didn’t change my shirt
and the evening’s drinks
left a lingering taste in my mouth

and when i left, you were fast asleep
tangled in the sheets, and on the bus
i could have sworn it was all a dream
it didn’t happen to me

and then i felt the scrapes
from a slippery subway grate
oh, how you laughed
at my complete lack of grace
but i could not recall a more perfect fall
’cause when i looked up into your eyes
it didn’t hurt at all

and i thought, be still my heart
this could be a brand new start with you
and it will be clear
if i wake up and you’re still here with me
in the morning

and i thought, be still my heart
this could be a brand new start with you
and it will be clear
if i wake up and you’re still here with me
in the morning

be still my heart
this could be a brand new start with you
and it will be clear
if i wake up and you’re still here with me
in the morning
