today i was remembering

laugher-filled and kiss-dotted scrabble games. turkey sandwiches and pinot grigo. loading my grandparents’ picnic basket with cheese and fruit, putting the top down and getting LOST.

i was remembering

those balmy sunsets
the angelica
cafe japon
unhinged productions
margaret cho
kurt & courtney
and chai tea.

i was remembering you today.

I’ll take Light Rock for a hundred, Alex

so i was thinking about the tv game show jeopardy! and i thought up a category group of my own. it’s called “light rock”. in this category, i will give you contemporary or classic rock lyrics and you are to come up with the title of the song, which includes the word “light”. (artists are not required, but are listed here)here are the answers and the questions:

Mamma always told me not to look into
the eyes of the sun
But Mamma, that’s where
the FUN is!

What is “Blinded By The Light” (Bruce Springsteen)


All the world’s indeed a stage
And we are merely players
Performers and portrayers
Each anothers audience
Outside the gilded cage

What is “Limelight” (Rush)


Time to hesitate is through
No time to wallow in the mire
Try now we can only lose
And our love become a funeral pyre

What is “Light My Fire” (Doors)


Sun turnin’ ’round with graceful motion
We’re setting off with soft explosion
Bound for a star with fiery oceans

What is “2000 Light Years From Home” (Rolling Stones)


It was late last night
I was feeling something wasn’t right
There was not another soul in sight
Only you, only you

What is: I Saw The Light (Todd Rundgren)
