Jump


That's a title of an old Van Halen song. I once heard that old Van Halen is completely underrated. I'm not sure whether I like or dislike this statement. Perhaps it's not a matter of liking so much as agreeing or disagreeing but I do enjoy deciding if I like or dislike something. It makes things very clear.

Clear like the water in this quarry. This is where my babies played today. This totally cool big log was floating around in the middle of it. To play on. Genius. Apparently it was part of the old quarry place, the boom. That's what it was. One day this guy who worked there got fired. He went out and had a few drinks and then came back and chopped it down or something and the quarry filled with water and now we can play on it. Do yoga tricks and back dives off it. I'm pretty sure that was his intention a gazillion years ago. He was smart. Smart as a whip.

Saige practiced until it was like walking on the ground. It's not easy either. It's slippery and it spins when you are on it, That Cradle Will Rock. She didn't give up though. It's a good thing there was no Loss of Control cause I would have had to ask Somebody Get Me a Doctor. My Little Dreamer yelled Bottoms Up right before she Jumped. When Chase got up there with her it was a little battle we called When Push Comes to Shove she was On Fire though my Beautiful Girl. Could This Be Magic? I Had To Call the Icecream Man named Big Bad Bill is Sweet William Now for my kids cause Everybody Wants Some. Now they're Dancing in the Street.
Happy Trails...

I know I'm Just a Gigolo, but this is a Damn Good post (like postal service on time good). I want my California Girls to read it cuz I'm Goin Crazy despite being a Shy Boy. You are Just Like Paradise despite being Big Trouble. But That's Life. Now go Bump and Grind in the Coconut Grove, Knucklebones. I'm Goin Crazy!

Old Van Halen bites. I can't drive 55, but I can text, eat a whopper, and kick David Lee Roth's ass all while I'm driving on the 444.

Once again Sleezy is Bad to the Bone.

Uh oh, here we go again. That looks like fun and the water is a pretty color. Mama, don't let your children grow up to be fish. (does that count?)

@snow white's leather clad friend: I Drink Alone. But for you, I'll make an exception. Who Do You Love baby?

It took me 20 minutes to type this with my nose. It isn't easy without fingers. Amy's stupid kitchen appliance experiments. Anyway, as Amy's servant, I am around her unshowered self all the time. My favorite VH song is easily Respect the Wind.

@Kathy: My favorite Van Halen song is Spanked.

Well, at the risk of pissing everyone off over here, I don't care for either Van Halen--old or new. But if I had to chose, I'd probably go with new b/c there's something about David Lee Roth that makes me want to punch him in the face.

Anywho...that water looks awesome! I can't believe it's in a quarry b/c usually those are so dark & scary! I'm impressed with the mad balancing skillz.

I think this is as good a place as any (you'll get the segue) to point out the irony of the "No irritants" promise on the box of bikini wax I recently purchased. No irritants, my ass...or should I say no irritants, my perfectly coiffed snatch.

Is that too much?
