Well, i've been having a refresher course in accepting God's Will these past couple of days. It's been a bit hard at times, but i think i've finally accepted and gotten over the fact that i'm not out in Virginia at the Fairy Tale Novels Forum Get-Together. I had to cry, write a song and pray before i could, but now i'm fine.
It makes me wonder....
How do people who don't believe in God or prayer ever survive?
Er, as i mentioned in the above quick take, i wrote a rather pathetic song about not going to Virginia. I am quite proud of it, so i figured i would share it with you other deprived people out there. ;) 'Tis to be sung to the tune of "When There Was Me and You" from High School Musical.
It's funny when you find yourself
Watchin’ them on YouTube.
I'm standing here, but all I want
Is to be over there.
Why couldn’t it have worked out,
A miracle just happen?
Cause now I have to pretend
That I am fine right here.
I want to go to
And see my friends, my family.
Meet Paul, Elena, Grace
And Rachel too.
But my folks knew I couldn’t buy
A ticket to Front Royal oooh ooh
Wish I could be there too….
I swore I would get there somehow
By a train or walking.
And how I tried,
I did all that
A girl could ever do.
But it just wasn’t meant to be.
Now I’m feeling wistful,
I’m only left with might-have-beens
And maybe a next year.
Now I know I can’t go to VA,
Won’t see my friends, my family.
Meet Emmy, Daisy, Liz
And Bowman too.
Cause now even I can tell
I can’t go to Front Royal, oooh ooh
Wish I could be there too
But dreams don’t all come true
Hey at least,
They gave me call.
Got to talk to
Them that’s better
Than nothin’ at all.
I wish I was there too,
Be there with all of you.
But dreams don’t all come true.
A highlight of the week though was being able to talk to some of the folks at the Black Cat Inn Thursday and again today!!!! Let's see, i talked to Emmy, Rachel, Vicki, Hannah, Grace, Paul and Ginger and Elena said hi i think (it was a bit hard to hear at times, so i'm not really sure!)
Anyhow, thanks to all of you whom i talked to for taking pity on a poor girl who wants to meet you all so much!!!
Random fact... my character on the forum died the other day. Poor me, i was killed when the evil villain was backed up against the edge of a cliff so he threw a knife at Peter and leapt over the cliff rather than surrender. (Poor addle-brained lug.) Now, as it would have been against the rules for Peter to die (we have a no killing your husband rule) I simply had no choice but to leap in front of him and die myself! It's been rather nice, you know, being mourned and all that. One dear girl even wrote a song. ;)
Hmm, shall i post something non forum related for this one? (Horror of horrors, that 'twould be unthinkable!)
Well, i shall be going swimming shortly, so ta ta for now!
