Everytime she sneezes I believe it's love...

Oh, and one other thing. Can I just say how much I LOVE Counting Crows right now? I listened to them a lot on this last trip, because they are so calming and yet they drown out the talking in the van when I want to sleep. My favorite song on August and Everything After is Anna Begins. What a great song.

"If it's love," she said, "then we're going to have to think about the consequences."

She can't stop shaking and I can't stop touching her and this time
When kindness falls like rain, it washes her away
And Anna begins to change her mind

"These seconds when I'm shaking leave me shuddering for days," she says
And I'm not ready for this sort of thing…

I am. I think this is such a great song about all of the uncertainty and yet the coolest feelings of falling in love. So maybe that’s why even through all of the stupid ridiculousness of dating, I still do it because I know how that feels and I want to feel it again.

But right now, I just noticed what time it is. It’s Harry Potter time! So me, the cats, and my new giraffe, Hays, have some serious reading to do.

That cd reminds me so much of the Summer and Fall of 94. How can that cd be 11 years old??? Wasn't it just yesterday that we were hauling ass across C-470 from Highlands Ranch to make curfew? :)

First off, thank you so much for your wonderfully nice comment! And thank you for validating my narcissistic Craigslist obsession!

Secondly, I LOVE THE COUNTING CROWS...and of all my favorite CC songs, Anna Begins is my favorite. I love it for the same reasons as you stated. Falling in love is scary and it feels like we're jumping off a cliff, but that's also why it's exciting! Thanks for pointing that out. I'm gonna go pull out my Counting Crows CD now. :)

That is my all time fave on the cd, Films About Ghosts. Reading that line stopped me in my tracks. Everytime I listen to it I think it's about a baby or something. My other Faves are Omaha and that Einstien song.

Wouldn't it be great if that feeling came in pill form? What an addict I would be.

that feeling in a pill...then we'd all need a 12 step program!
