Playing Our Song: Hazy Shade of Winter, here in the spring.  
You know, Simon & Garfunkle's "Hazy Shade of Winter" is a very good "I am so fucking drunk" song.

And I am most definitely exceptionally inebriated.

On the company dime.

And you know something?

I've earned this.








Hazy Shade of Winter
Paul Simon and Art Garfunkle
from the 1968 album
Bookends


Time, time, time, see what's become of me
While I looked around
For my possibilities
I was so hard to please
But look around, leaves are brown
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hear the Salvation Army band
Down by the riverside, it's bound to be a better ride
Than what you've got planned
Carry your cup in your hand
And look around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Hang on to your hopes, my friend
That's an easy thing to say, but if your hope should pass away
It's simply pretend
That you can build them again
Look around, the grass is high
The fields are ripe, it's the springtime of my life

Ahhh, seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won't you stop and remember me
At any convenient time
Funny how my memory slips while looking over manuscripts
Of unpublished rhyme
Drinking my vodka and lime

I look around, leaves are brown now
And the sky is a hazy shade of winter

Look around, leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow on the ground...

Look around, leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow on the ground...

Look around, leaves are brown
There's a patch of snow on the ground...



Ahhh, seasons change with the scenery
Weaving time in a tapestry
Won't you stop and remember me

*clinks glasses with you* I'm having a bit of the Molecule of Joy myself. Rum. Mmmmm.... Rum.

Yes, you have. Celebrate for once in your life, Athe; you've truly earned a little bit of pleasure.

'Twas indeed The Bangles -- heathen that I am, I embedded their version ABOVE Paul & Art's.

Ah. I didn't look - I don't watch videos online when the tv's on.

I'm the same way.

Someone will IM me a YouTube URL.

"I'm watching TV."

(A few minutes pass)

"So what did you think of that video?"

"I think I'm watching TV."
