It's Calendar Day!*

A text I sent my husband tonight, shared for those of you who I've let into my weird little world(s):

"So, my favorite part of the Grazing Day scene?** How Peter just nonchalantly explains it to Nerdy Lincoln. Like it's the most normal thing in the world. Which it is. To them. Like us and Camo and Fig. We all build our weird little worlds and choose who we let into them. And that's what Fringe is about. Family."

Because yes. Just so much yes. My husband and I own a megalomaniac cat who hates everyone and a stuffed bear who would take over the world if only he had digits. Once, said bear was arrested by another bear and now has a restraining order and isn't allowed to associate with monkeys. These things happen. At least to us; in our world.

And that's completely okay fucking awesome.

It's also awesome (and normal) that taj_mahal07 and I spent three hours last night angsting over a single episode of a television show and that lemonpiefirefly and I camped out for Star Wars.

As awesome (and normal) as Grazing Day is for Walter and Peter and Gene. Fringe reminds me that we all have our things, and that's the best in life.

It's like the great song*** says:

"And reasons the world would want to question, make sense to you and me."

Damn straight, Jimmy. Damn straight.

---

*From If Lucy Fell, which I encourage you to see if you haven't. The phrase applies here. Trust me.

**Only the first thirty seconds apply here, and they are plot-spoiler free. Oh, Fringe. I love you.

***This song rocks, and this particular recording of this song is so very, very special to me. That is all for now. That is another story for another day.

Yeah; I think one of the best moments in "adulthood" is when you realize that you can choose to surround yourself with the things and people you love, and that make _you_ happy*. "Because that's the way it's done" and "because you should" are far (FAR) less important than they're advertised when you get right to it.

Incidentally, and to the point of doing what makes you happy, the YouTube link loaded The Frisco Clip - But then afterward started playing the album "Living and Dying in 3/4 Time". I have always ** liked this part in "West Nashville Grand Ballroom Gown," "I haven't made church in near 36 Sundays, so fuck all those West Nashville grand ballroom gowns."

"Livingston's still in Texas, and the snow's about to fall...".
This line makes me sad and happy, both in the song, and in general. And was a great moment at the concert, too.

And "If Lucy Fell" is just so wonderful. Required viewing.

* or, as with Peter in the beginning, barring being able to change a circumstance outright, to find the bits of it that can make it special ("I find that if you just 'go with it'...") ;)

** I think I'd thought I heard the entirety of the album well before this memory, but as I like to listen to lyrics and think I would have recalled hearing this one pretty well, maybe I skipped it, or??? Of course, pre-you*** I was more of a radio play, "A1A", "Songs You Know By Heart" Buffett fan.
In any case, I vividly recall feeling "introduced" to this song as we were driving down the N-bound I-35 access road near 288 early in our SRidge days. Can't explain it, but a snippet of us in the car (I think Des; I am pretty sure you were driving that time) singing along with the letter part as I was picking up the words. That little moment always flashes in my head when the song comes on.

***? Is it weird I think that concept is weird now? Goes to my (and your) first point of successfully building your own family. Thanks for being part of mine.

I can honestly say I've never been too into "because that's the way it's done." And "because you should?" Bwahahaha! I'm actually better about that now than when I was little, but...whatever. ;)

And yup. One of only two Buffett songs with "fuck" in them in the original lyrics. That one's near and dear. I have a live cut of it from a 1974 concert. Yeah...good times.

That line doesn't do much for me, in terms of that song. The song is both brutal and wonderful, though.

Re: If Lucy Fell - thank you, Jessica for introducing me to that one. Because "I hate Jane. I'd like to get her into therapy and fuck her up real good." Among many other things.
