Today is the day
For dancing and for singing
The birds on the trees
And all the bells are ringing
The sun in the sky
Is bright as bright as second light
Is bright oh God I hope I’m alright
Cause I’m gonna cry
Hold on, hold on
Slow down, slow down
You’re out of touch
Out of touch
Cause there is no design for life
There’s no devil’s haircut in my mind
There is not a wonderwall to climb
Or step around
But there’s a slide show and it’s so slow
Flashing through my mind
Today was the day
But only for the first time
– Travis, “Slide Show”
Ok, I can’t hear this so I need some instruction on whether or not this is oddly joyous, or was recorded in Sombertown!
Really, should I be worried or not! Little help?!
Yes today is the day when we reach out to each other across the vast Interwebs and hold each others’ hands. Today is the day we all come together to think of you and wait with you.
You’re in my thoughts. Sending positive vibes into the universe, with your name attached. 🙂
Thinking of you Elly Lou. Hoping everything’s alright.
elly, now you’re making me cry and there’s nothing i can do about it because i sent tiny dancer to be with you today. tiny dancer won’t let even a microscopic trace of lymphoma anywhere near that goddess body of yours. if one cell so much as looks in your direction tiny dancer will pulverize the living daylights out of it.
hold tight, elly, you are swathed in love. xoxoxo
May magic rainbow unicorns carry you to and from that appointment! Thumbs up!
Today is the day we cheer! Hooray! (I was cheering last week too, I’m just a bit ahead of everyone else, see.)
Hey! That’s my favourite Travis song OF ALL! And I like lots of their songs. Wow it works on the uke too.
This song always makes me want to cry.
Even when I’m NOT PMSy!
P.S. I KNOW you’ll be ok. And tomorrow? We’ll celebrate the shit out of life.
Hope you are home from your appointment with good news. Thinking of you today!
I just did a cartwheel in your honor. That may not sound impressive but you just try it with sparklers sticking out of every orifice. No amount of firepower is too great for our Elly.
That was me being ridiculously happy for you and stuff (I read your tweet)
Now, in your honor, I shall stuff a giant cake into my mouth, drink several martinis, and attempt to play the air-ukulele all while dancing (you know I don’t dance) Hooray!!
I’m going to go watch Amanda do all that stuff. And help her drink martinis. Maybe I’ll dance. I’m really bad at it, but not adverse to it after several martinis. But enough about me. Really happy for you, Elly.
I’m not worried – you’re 100% fine.
The God I believe in thinks you’re hot. And totally healthy.
Thanks all! And now it’s time for champagne. And pajamas. And sugar plum fairies and NPH dreams and unicorns and…
Again, I’m flummoxed.
OK, I don’t drink champagne. And I’m fresh out of unicorns and sugar plum fairies. But I gots some PJs and I sure haz NPH dreams to share…your dream or mine? One hour. See you there, rock star.
OK, beautiful song, but thank God I didn’t look at this yesterday before I heard from you. Oy. I hope last night was full of making plans. 😉
