Woke Up This Morning- A3

You woke up this morning
Got yourself a gun,
Mama always said you'd be
The Chosen One.

She said: You're one in a million
You've got to burn to shine,
But you were born under a bad sign,
With a blue moon in your eyes.

You woke up this morning
All the love has gone,
Your Papa never told you
About right and wrong.

But you're looking good, baby,
I believe you're feeling fine, (shame about it),
Born under a bad sign
With a blue moon in your eyes.

You woke up this morning
The world turned upside down,
Thing's ain't been the same
Since the Blues walked into town.

But you're one in a million
You've got that shotgun shine.
Born under a bad sign,
With a blue moon in your eyes.

First, an amusing one: Internet Gambling: Spelling Bee Champ Is a Math-Whiz, Too
Placing bets on the spelling bee?! And I thought I was a degenerate! (How do you handicap the bee???)

Very briefly- I may take a lil time away. I'm just v-e-r-y drained, in every way, right now. I'm tired, tired of making so much effort to try and do things the "right" way and seeing so little results. I'm tired of running myself into the ground and just seeming to go thru the motions of existing while I see soooooooo many others, in all of my walks of life, making progress, living fulfilling, or at least full, lives. I'm tired of extending myself in all of my walks of life (including this one) and having my efforts, hell, having me, taken for granted, and/or ignored, by too many, too often. I've written on this previously; obviously there is something to it. I realize this sounds self-absorbed and self-pitying...

I need to take some time, pull into myself, and re-charge. If I stay in touch w/ you, you'll know you're on my "A" list (ie, I treat you with the same appreciation with which you've shown me.) If I don't, look to yourself as to why.

Hopefully I'll have lightened up within a month; sorry for a bummer on a Saturday night (hopefully you're not stuck in an office in front of a 'puter... again.)
