First, Amber figured out what the numbers mean and even corrected me from yesterday. I am surprised Dad has not cracked the simple meaning of the title.

Second, I added a history to the blog because I have now been posting longer than I even thought I would. I don't want to clutter the blog, but some things are just necessary.

Peter Gabriel is blaring (quietly) from my computer right now. Perhaps that means it is time to write about my favorite (or almost favorite) movie. Say Anything is a beautiful movie about young love and the confusion that brings. John Cusack is playing himself in a role where talking to a recorder is the best excuse the director, Cameron Crowe, has for filming some of Mr. Cusack's best monologues. Whenever I am driving in the rain in a bad mood I simply think "The rain is a baptism" and try to cleanse my spirit before I get to my destination. Mr. Gabriel is a great choice for the most pivotal point in the movie. He too is a confused man and as my father pointed out paranoid (We Do What We're Told).

Big Time!

"The place where I come from is a small town
They think so small
They use small words
-but not me
Im smarter than that
I worked it out
I've been stretching my mouth
To let those big words come right out."
