the engine driver lyrics

The Decemberists
The Engine Driver

I'm an engine driver
On a long run, on a long run
Would I work beside her
She's a long one, such a long one

And if you don't love me let me go
And if you don't love me let me go

I'm a country lineman
On a high line, on a high line
So will be my grandson
There are powerlines in our bloodlines

And if you don't love me let me go
And if you don't love me let me go

And I am a writer, writer of fictions
I am the heart that you call home
And I've written pages upon pages
Trying to rid you from my bones
My bones My bones

I'm a money lender
I have fortunes upon fortunes

soundtrack of my day

between the bars
the engine driver*
rain-patty griffin
we will become silhouettes
be careful-patty griffin
such great heights
carry me -patty griffin again
casimir pulaski day
the man of metropolis steals our hearts
red red wine
against all odds-postal service

its not a mix just some songs i am loving today

If you haven't heard the engine driver by the yourself a favor and listen to it

what have i been up too.....

1-15 hour drive across the country
25-resumes printed
8-resumes actually handed out
3-job interviews
1 and half pounds gained
0-time spent exercising
countless hours spent watching tv...i am extremely addicted to the following shows:
-THE OLYMPICS(three hours spent wishing i could ice skate)
(i need help!..... in my defense of recent laziness i blame the cold weather and internet poker....)

currently reading three books...Heaven's mirror, The sign and the seal, and the glass castle

9-hours spent reading fashion mags...followed by countless hours day dreaming about silk prada slips and tall black boots

8-full dinners cooked perfectly and presented with creativity and elegance
2-dinners burned
5-dinners out

1-movie in a theatre
12-movies rented

my bit for the downtrodden

have you ever felt emotionally overloaded like you couldn't possible feel any more feelings all at the same time and then suddenly wake up and feel none... and you wonder how long it will be this time...the absence of emotion

depressing i know but it is a "blog" ..... i believe i remember something in the directions stating that a certain bit of melancholy was required. If you do not, from time to time, write about sad thoughts or events... they take your blogging license away and excommunicate you.

who's pants are you wearing?

i remember being young and stupid...pause.... at times i still am but perhaps i have grown out of this particular childhood joke.....perhaps

i would select my victims neither carefully or thoughtfully(...i was seven...) and proceed with a line of questioning until they made complete fools of themselves and fell right into my plan...
"hey look at that."-me


"that under there..."-me


"under there..."-me

"under where?!"-victim

"hahaha you said underwear!!!hahaha!"-me

i am not sure why this was so amusing to me. Underwear wasn't a swear word or anything like that but it was hilarious at the time...who knows....although just thinking about it is making me giggle.

people have lots of different names for their underwear here are a few i've heard.....

underwear panties underthings undergarments fudgies underroos underpinnings Knickers bloomers guchees briefs pants(slang in england) shorts roos bikini briefs BVD's corset drawers intimate things jockey shorts jockeys lingerie long johns skivvy smallclothes underclothes underclothing underpants undershirt underthings undies unmentionables woollies thermals boxers

etcun·der·wear Pronunciation: '&n-d&r-"war, -"wer Function: noun: clothing or an article of clothing worn next to the skin and under other clothing

what do you call yours?

i prefer panties
