Joyful Joyful...



As a gift for Friday, here is a my favorite scene from Jaws, one that was unfortunately cut from the final film.

When someone insists on saying something I don't want to hear, I like to clamp my hands over my ears and sing Stars & Stripes Forever until they stop. I can belt out the melody or the 2nd horn part, whichever comes to mind first.

After seeing this, though, I'm considering changing my I-can't-hear-you-is-somebody-saying-something tune.

lol I don't have one of those tunes actually - I must think of one.

Like seeing you presiding over us all at the top there, Robyn!

Ha ha ha. That guy brings in the crazy like a net full- o- fish!

I'm already humming a tune when people talk to me I usually have to stop to hear them-good or bad. This is why I prefer talk radio, for something different in my head.

Yay for summer...sharks and all! Ooh, that makes me want to hit the drive in for some reason.

I have this very nasty habit of hearing the "grownups" voices from those Charlie Brown cartoons (bwwwaah. bwaah. bwah)whenever someone is speaking to me and I begin to lose interest. One day, I will slip and say it out loud.
