Sausage....

... my OCD side often forces me to completely submerge myself in whatever I am doing... I tend to latch onto things until I know them inside and backwards.... replaying the same DVD, CD, or video over and over until I know every nuance.... and with music, there are certain phrases, rhymes, or rhythms that catch me instantly...

... this morning, for instance, I woke up with snippets of lyrics from Waits' classic "Eggs and Sausage (In a Cadillac with Susan Michelson)" bouncing around in my brain....

....It's two for a quarter - a dime for a dance.
Woolworths rhinestone diamond earrings and a sideways glance.....

... it's not just the lyrics, but how he syncopates the words as they roll out... I am hopelessly addicted...

... It's a cold caffeine in a nicotine cloud....
..... but the touch of your fingers
.. lingers burning in my memory...
.. I've been 86'd by your scheme
... and now I'm in a melodramatic nocturnal scene...

... that's some brilliant stuff, right there...

... anyway, I'm just back from a late lunch in Knoxville at Aubrey's.... and I've been informed that RSM is stopping by for a few games of pool in a bit... not sure if he's a Tom Waits fan, but we'll soon find out.... heh...

Sounds like you're in for a fun evening (is there any other kind??) at casa d'SWG.

And Aubrey - hmmmm. Now that's one of my favorite names. (Go figure. ) Hopefully I'll get down that way one day and check the place out...

Give my best to RSM.

LMAO!!! My OCD side wars with my ADD side and I just stay confused all the time. I do the playing of the cds like that, though...I never freaking knew that was OCD...crap. Dammit..you all are just busting right through my whole denial deal, ya know.

of course OCD does have its benefits ... my home is frightfully neat.

Ok, my brother in OCD. I was given this "test" to learn in under an hour by a class instructor. She said usually only people with true OCD can do it, especially within that amount of time. I did it in about 15 minutes and still know it to this day (this was ten years ago).
Learn your ABC's backwards. (in under an hour). Let me know how you do.
