Misheard knitting reference

I was so pleased yesterday to hear the following lyric in a Ben Folds Five song, "Kate", off of Whenever and Ever:

"She never gets wet, she just smiles and knits a rainbow"

Sadly, when I looked up the lyric to confirm it, I discovered that I had misheard. The line is "smiles and it's a rainbow".

I like my line better!


It seems that exercise is becoming a habit with me -- this may be my first good habit! Yesterday I was bouncing off the walls all afternoon, very nearly literally bouncing off the walls, in fact. Suddenly I said to myself, "Self, you ought to go to the gym and work off some of this energy."

Then I said, "WTF? Who said such an ass-crazy thing?" But then I realized it was an absolutely good idea, as the extra energy was not the good kind, but the frazzled kind. So I did it, and it was great. A swell workout, and very calming.

Three cheers for exercise! I've been to the gym every workday since last Tuesday, and it's great.
