Have You Ever Seen A One-Legged Man Trying To Dance His Way Free..


I find it oddly comforting that my peacefulness came this afternoon via a song about body-slamming and pain in the movie The Wrestler. Do you see the hysterical irony in this? But it did. As soon as the synthesizer started I got all mellow, closed my eyes and thought about one-trick inspirations. I won this album via New Music Monday on Bond's Big Leather Couch some time ago. I've had it cranked up today. Then the guitar called me to the couch and that's all she wrote.
Thank you, Vinny.

So I curled up in a blanket,
hair (still tangled) in a ponytail
a big comfy sweater
and fuzzy Queen slippers on my feet
went to sleep
and took a long nap

Rest is underrated.

"Rest is underrated."

Hmmm... sounds like you had fun. Fuzzy slippers and all! :)

Rest is underrated says the Fish who took a two hour nap today.

You can never go wrong with Bruce.

Dawn (Twisted Sister) said...

Sounds like my kind of afternoon :)
Hope you are feeling better.

Charles Gramlich said...

Did he mean for it to be funny?

Akelamalu said...

Rest is the best when you've been through what you've been through. x

Ricardo said...

Rest is underrated and if anyone tells you otherwise, body slam them through a table and hit them with a steel chair. That's how it's done in the wrestling biz.

Travis said...

Naps are the best. I question my judgement at the age of 5 because I always fought nap time.

meleah rebeccah said...

Naps are my FAVORITE thing In The World!

Jamie said...

If anyone deserves a good snuggle nap it is Queen Mimi Pencil Skirt de Bloggingham. Glad you enjoyed it.

Sandee (Comedy +) said...

It's beautiful honey. Rest is indeed underrated. Biggest hug ever. :)

Mimi Lenox said...

Bibi - I'm beginning to "pencil in" naps on my schedule.

Mimi Lenox said...

Fish - Naps seem to be the order of the blogworld today.

Mimi Lenox said...

Dawn - I'm trying to make myself rest. R.E.S.T.
It is not easy!!

Mimi Lenox said...

Charles - I think not.

Mimi Lenox said...

Akelamalu - "Rest is the best"..taking notes.

Mimi Lenox said...

Ricardo - I don't think I can do that but thanks for the suggestion!

Mimi Lenox said...

Travis - Something to think about....I always got in trouble during nap time too.
Don't make me go there again!

Mimi Lenox said...

Meleah - Go take one!

Mimi Lenox said...

Jamie - I took one today also...I hope it's addictive.

Mimi Lenox said...

Sandee - Hugs back...

There are a few songs I can virtually guarantee will drop my blood pressure and help me sleep. The Verve's Bittersweet Symphony, Moby's Porcelain and Enya's Orinoco Flow and and Caribbean Blue. They beat warm milk and sleeping pills any day.

The Gal Herself said...

According to my grandma, who knew these things, it's a nap if it's on the bed but ON TOP of the covers. Or if it's on the sofa. I often wonder what she would make of the Snuggie, but I digress.

This humble subject is pleased that her Queen is resting comfortably.

Mojo said...

Oh dear, I really can't add anything to what the others have said, but I just had to tell you that the word verification is "Boyelin". (Yes, I know it's spelled wrong, but how ironic is that?)

I do hope you're recovering from your trials m'lady. Rest is the order of the day.

Shannon H. said...

Rest is very underrated! I think my boss should let me have at least one nap during the work day.

Mimi Lenox said...

Starr - I can't stand Enya but I will check out the others. As in NOW. Bedtime would arrive if I would STOP answering comments.

It's really that simple.
I need to go to bed.
Cue Springsteen.....ahhhh....that's better.

Mimi Lenox said...

Gal - My grandma said the same thing. Naps are not for crawling under covers. For one thing, she would never have allowed the made-up bed to be unmade in the middle of the day.
Heaven forbid.

Mimi Lenox said...

Mojo - These word verifications are getting weirder and weirder. I feel like I'm in the Twilight Zone.
(more than usual)

Mimi Lenox said...

Shannon - Tell him the Queen of Bloggingham said so.

So let it be written.
So let it be done.
