Knees of My Bees
“LIFE is a mosaic of pleasure and pain - grief is an interval between two
moments of joy. Peace is the interlude between two wars.
Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba
Friends and Schoolmates,
I think it's time again for some Alanis Morissette music.
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWUHtYt2KHs - Knees of My Bees - Alanis Morissette, live on the Letterman Show, November 18, 2004.
Alanis Nadine Morissette (born June 1, 1974) is a Canadian-American singer-songwriter, record producer and actress. She has won 16 Juno Awards and seven Grammy Awards. Morissette began her career in Canada, and as a teenager recorded two dance-pop albums, Alanis and Now Is the Time, under MCA Records Canada... In February 2005, Morissette became a naturalized citizen of the United States while maintaining her Canadian citizenship.
So-Called Chaos is the sixth studio album (fourth released internationally) by Canadian singer-songwriter Alanis Morissette, released in May 2004 (see 2004 in music).
It had been two years since Morissette released her fifth studio album, Under Rug Swept. In that time she had met her fiancé Ryan Reynolds, so her cheery disposition made its presence felt in many of the songs she wrote for So-Called Chaos. The album found her in a more contented and relaxed state than ever, and her songs were brighter and happier than her more volatile works like "You Oughta Know" and "Uninvited". One reporter asked if the song "This Grudge" was based on the same person as "You Oughta Know", and Morissette replied, "Different person, same era."

From www.ajokeaday.com - 07/20/14:
|A guy was walking along the street when he saw a crowd of people
running towards him.
He stopped one of the runners and asked, “What’s happening?”
The runner replied breathlessly: “A lion has escaped from the zoo.”
“Oh my, which way is it heading?”
“Well, you don’t think we are chasing it, do you?”
