You think your days are uneventful And no one ever thinks about you She goes her own way She goes her own way You think your days are ordinary And no one ever thinks about you But we're all the same And she can hardly breathe without you
She says she has no time For you now She says she has no time
I'm sure that many of you have seen the ubiquitous "Keep Calm" posters all over everywhere. (No, no, they are literally EVERYWHERE, I'm not kidding.) Little bit of history for those of you who care: they were designed by the British government in 1939 to raise morale in the event the British were invaded during WWII. Which they weren't - because, let's face it, who wants to eat British food? Kippers for breakfast? Kidney pie? Black pudding? Spotted Dick?! (Seriously? Um...no, thanks, I'll just chew more gum. And don't go emailing me that all that stuff is tasty... don't care; I'm pretty much a cheeseburger, steak and potato, nice green salad kind of girl.)
Anywho, for the few of you who are oblivious, the posters look something like this:
I have, as of late, seen several parodies including "Keep Calm and Craft On", "Keep Calm and Fake a British Accent" and my favorite - "Keep Calm and Cary Grant".

Blue canary in the outlet by the light switch Who watches over you Make a little birdhouse in your soul Not to put too fine a point on it Say I'm the only bee in your bonnet Make a little birdhouse in your soul
A while back, Secret Agent Man and I were having a discussion about how we'd like to win a huge ginormous lottery so we could build our own little town and set it up by our rules. Limited number of homes, small town feeling. I want a town square where there's a bandstand and people feel safe walking to and from stores. Where there's no graffiti, no trash in the streets, no boarded up buildings. A drive-in movie theater. A soda shop. Like Back to the Future or Ghost Whisper:
