It's Friday, I'm in Love*

with the moon. Have you seen it lately? Frickin' ginormous. It followed me to work this morning, shining argent** opposite the sun. I'll follow it to Texas tonight, maybe silver, but hopefully luminous and gold, close enough to touch.

Fly Me To The Moon - Frank Sinatra
(I joke about wanting "Don't Stop Believing" to be my wedding song, but really, I'd like this one. It's my favorite Sinatra song by far - a simple declaration and a simple request - also, I can't believe the horn section. Holy Crap! And, I'm a dork.)

Pink Moon - Nick Drake
Harvest Moon - Neil Diamond
who knows if the moon's - e.e. cummings
Goodnight Moon - Margaret Wise Brown
Moonpie
Landscape with Couple Walking and Crescent Moon

*I swear I posted this on Friday, I have no idea why it didn't go up.
**See that M5K? Improperly used, yes, but used nonetheless.

I almost spit up my coffee trying to imagine Harvest Moon being sung with all that gusto, tight pants...and chest hair.

way to pull out argent. that's awesome. it did make my head hurt this early in the morning though.

In honor of this post, I'm mooning your blog. And I'm getting fired from job because of it. Thanks, Blythe... thanks a lot.

Mrs. 5K & I had a romantic weekend getaway dealie at the coast, and the moon coming up over the Coast Range both nights was -- how to put it poetically? -- fucking huge!! Really, really big!! It was TOTALLY romantic and shit.

If you have "Don't Stop Believin'" as your wedding song, I'd love to imagine myself with one leg up and fist pumping to this while pounding a bottle of booze from your open bar.

Let's combine 'em both:

Frank Sinatra's 'Polka Dots and Moonbeams'.
