"There's something that I can't quite explain...

..I'm so in love with you." Calling You by Blue October

Here's the whole song:

theres something that i cant quite explain
i'm so in love with you
you'll never take that away

and if i said it a hundred times before
expect a thousand more
you never take that away

well expect me to be
calling you to see
if you're ok when i'm not around
asking if you love me
i love the way you make it sound
calling you to see
do i try too hard to make you smile
to make a smile

well i will keep calling you to see
if you're sleepin are you dreamin and
if you're dreamin are you dreamin of me
i cant believe
you actually picked...me

i thought that the world had lost its sway
(its so hard sometimes)
then i fell in love with you
(then came you)
and you took that away
(its not so difficult, the world is not so difficult)
you take away the old
show me the new
and i feel like i can fly
when i stand next to you
so what if I'm on this phone
a hundred miles from home
i take the words you gave
and send them back to you

i only want to see
if you're ok when i'm not around
asking if you love me
i love the way you make it sound
calling you to see
do i try too hard to make you smile
to make a smile

i will keep calling you to see
if you're sleepin are you dreamin
if you're dreamin are you dreamin of me
i cant believe
you actually picked...me

Apologies for the lack of punctuation and such--that's what you get when you type a song as they sing it. I guess love songs have been much on my mind since my sister just got engaged. :-)


So. We went and saw National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets today. Reilly is so awesome--he's totally my favorite. I completely identify with his living with brilliant people who always make him feel dumb--even though he's a super-awesome hacker with mad skills. I envy his mad skills.


I don't think there's that much to say about the movie. It was a cute, funny, smooth adventure using American (and a few other) settings to familiarize the audience with a little more history, and to fictionalize a little bit more. It's a classic legend series, which America lacks spectacularly, but, as we see by most critics' negative comments about the National Treasure movies, America does not seem to want it's own legends. The criticism hasn't changed the fact that the theater was packed.

Speaking of packed, I am getting ready to pack for my return to school (i.e., I realize I'm leaving in a week-and-a-half) and I'm absolutely boggled at how much stuff I acquired this year. I have not gained any space in my car, so that means I need to seriously plan and pack very carefully for this trip.

I can do that.
