Having an Amelie moment

For once, shockingly, the tv isn't on in the livingroom (why is our family so loud?). This forces me to focus on background room noises:

The clicking of my maneki neko kitchen chochkey,
The tapping sounds of my computer-game obsessed first born, and
The rhythmic snoring of the infant on my lap.

Oh wait, there's more---the lawnmower next door just started up.

Sort of avant garde noise opera. But probably only interesting to me.

And the award for inappropriate coincidence of the day goes to.........

ME, for pulling up to a shopping mall street corner with Tiny Tim's "Livin' in the sunlight, lovin' in the moonlight" playing on my cd player, with the kids in the backseat, as a homeless man stood there begging for money and food.

Right as we pulled up to the red light and the homeless man stared right into my eyes, holding up his ratty cardboard sign in my direction, Tiny Tim sang, "Things that bother you never bother me..."

It made me feel awful, even though that man didn't hear us.
Actually, things that bother him really bother me. A lot.

Aaaaaaaaaand................I'm back.

I totally forgot that I had this blog.  I went to create one, and tried to use the name "the-angry-kitten," only to find that some biyotch took it!  Unavailable!  Boo!  Grrr!
Great, so who uses my other pseudonym, and should I create another web name...because lord knows we don't have nearly enough usernames and passwords to keep track of, right?

I went to see who it was.  It was me.  Oops.  I forgot I signed myself up a few years ago.

Luckily, I serendipitously logged in to the account before my blogger name was taken away permanently by the Blogger police during their archival cleanup, which will happen in a couple of weeks.

And this is why I am Time Girl.
