Mmmm...my father just brought me pizza. Wonderful man, he is.

Finished Artemis Fowl. Fantastic book, really. Everyone should read it. It's very Terry Pratchett-like. Now it's back to Taggerung...

Here's a song:


Whiskey Lullaby
by Brad Paisley and Alison Krauss

She put him out like the burnin' end of a midnight cigarette
She broke his heart, he spent his whole life tryin' to forget
We watched him drink his pain away a little at a time
But he never could get drunk enough to get her off his mind,
Until the night.

He put that bottle to his head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away her memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength he had to get up off his knees
We found him with his face down in the pillow
With a note that said I'll love her 'til I die
And when we buried him beneath the willow
The angels sang a whiskey lullaby.

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la.

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la.

The rumors flew but nobody knew how much she blamed herself
For years and years she tried to hide the whiskey on her breath
She finally drank her pain away a little at a time
But she never could get drunk enough to get him off her mind,
Until the night.

She put that bottle to her head and pulled the trigger
And finally drank away his memory
Life is short but this time it was bigger
Than the strength she had to get up off her knees
We found her with her face down in the pillow
Clinging to his picture for dear life
We laid her next to him beneath the willow
While the angels sang a whiskey lullaby.

La la la la la la la
La la la la la la la.

Whoops, I just asked you in a previous post if you've read Artemis. Hahaha, I guess this answers my question. Let me know if the Wish List is good. :)

I hope my life really just doesn't end that way...though somehow, I could see it and that disturbs me greatly. *sigh*
