Bouncy, but Firm... Incompetent but Profound


Take the 100 Acre Personality Quiz!

Well, that's a heck of a lot more likely than the last time I took a Milne test.

Now, for the Henson Index:

Yeah, Gonzo. Well, I have a few minutes left in the day, so I'll post a late Thursday Lyric, one of my very favorite songs (Yeah, everyone loves "Rainbow Connection" and I do to, but this one gets me closer to the heart) from the original Muppet Movie, as done by my avatar....
this looks familiar; vaguely familiar,
almost unreal yet; it's too soon to feel yet.
close to my soul, and yet so far away.
i'm going to go back there someday.

sun rises, night falls; sometimes the sky calls.
is that a song there; and do i belong there?
i've never been there; but i know the way.
i'm going to go back there someday.

come and go with me, it's more fun to share;
we'll both be completely at home in midair.
we're flying, not walking, on featherless wings.
we can hold on to love like invisible strings.

there's not a word yet; for old friends who've just met.
part heaven, part space, or have i found my place?
you can just visit, but i plan to stay.
i'm going to go back there someday.

i'm going to go back there someday.
It's a bit like "Send in the Clowns" for real people....

I always liked "movin right along"

"together we'll nab it"
"We'll hitch-hike, bus or yellow cab-it!"

"We're ready for the big-time.
Is it ready for me?"

Yeah, that's good stuff (and it's going to be going through my head for days, now), and I'm really looking forward to introducing the Little Anachronism to it in a year or two.

Though as an adult, I find Frank Oz's Miss Piggy's rendition of "Never Before" to be particularly impressive, as an example of character voicing. I'm sure someone out there has done a thesis on the cross-dressing/drag queen aspects of Miss Piggy's diva-hood....
