Nothing but geckos

Posted on 2009.07.17 at 22:48
I spotted a gecko INSIDE our house for the first time today (the weather strip on the front door has a hole in it, so it lets in all sorts of unwelcome things). I didn't worry about it because it crawled into Jonathan's shoe, and he wasn't home to suffer from it. Later, we returned from a soiree and discovered the cats chasing something on the floor. Jonathan figured it was the gecko, but when I finally moved all the fluff out of the way, it was a wriggling thing the likes of which I'd never seen. It didn't even seem to have a head! What vile creature had crossed our threshold now? Turns out, it was the gecko's tail, recently severed from the gecko. Brilliant as this animated distraction should be, the gecko seemed unconcerned for its life. I couldn't bear to watch either the tail or the gecko anymore, but Jonathan kept me updated. Final report: the tail survived, but the gecko got eaten.

Given that my inspiration to exercise wears thin every few weeks, I've found that a temporary solution is to add a few new high-energy songs to my Ipod.  Alas, I'm out of ideas now that I FINALLY got "What Would Brian Boitano Do?" so I need help.  Do you guys know any good peppy songs that help you endure your jogging efforts?  Or that might help SOMEONE endure their jogging efforts?

If anything in my life ever merited posting (besides the dimensions of Olive Garden accoutrements), it is surely this, the pinnacle of familial pride...

My brother, Mr. MagickPoultry himself, is the official winner of Vote For the Worst's "Are You the Worst Idol" online singing competition.  I wish I could say that such talent runs in the family, but I think he's an anomaly.  My skills are limited to inadvertantly reinventing the rhythm of "Suddenly Seymour."

Anyway, I direct all interested parties to download his repertoire here.  If time or temperament limit your listening capacity, I suggest "Theme from Rawhide" or "The Bells of Notre Dame."  Enjoy (or don't).
