Sing Along to the Pirate’s Song.

Believe it or not [and you probably won’t], I actually do try to stay optimistic throughout the hard times of my life.

It isn’t easy, though.

Still, I try.

Despite the fact that I now have holes in four different locations of my jaw.

Despite the fact that there is not a Taco Bell™ within a hundred miles of me right now.

I try, even though all I’ve eaten today has been two pureed bananas and a plate of mashed ‘taters.

I still try.

I’m still trying to be cheerful, even though I don’t get out of school this week.

I’m trying, in spite of the fact that I currently reside in the windiest region of North America.

I’m trying to be positive, even though all I want to do is chew.  That’s it—chew.  Do you all realise how blessed you are to have the ability to chew?  I caught a whiff of popcorn at school today, and it just about killed me.

Anyway, none of that stuff matters, because I’m being cheerful today.  That’s why I give you this:

Coeur de Pirate (Heart of Pirate)

I’d like to think that if I had been a musician, I would’ve been just like this girl.  {I’d need thicker bangs, though—to be a truly good European, one must have top quality thick bangs.}  Her real name is Beatrice Martin {hello, way to take an old-school name and turn it beautiful with your striking good looks, Beatrice!}, and she’s Canadian [I dig those Canadian musicians].  Specifically French Canadian, and there’s nothing I like more than a song sung in French.

I’m probably the last person to blog about her, but when I’m in dire need of cheering up, somehow finishing first just stops being a priority.

  2. raygon says:

    I totally dont understand that song at all. But what a beautiful melody. I dig it and wish I could sing along.
    By the way, THE WIND?!? What the heck? It has been outrageous here too lately. Oh, I wish I had a skystream at times like this.
    I will think of you as I sit at my computer and chew my gum. you poor thing.

    I like it! That style reminds me of Regina Spektor, one of the other musicians you blogged about awhile ago. Nice.

  4. Tessa says:

    I totally love that song even tho I can’t understand a word of it. Its way good!

  5. Chloe says:

    Beautiful song! and I love French! :D
    I’m sorry for your wisdom teeth (holes)! I know what it is! I know how it hurts! And I know what it is to want to chew! I’ve had some problems with my wisdom teeth last year… so I sympathize with you. :(
    C’mon! pureed bananas taste good! ;)

    I am right there with you. I try so hard to stay optimistic. I complain and moan, but I do it all while smiling and I feel like that should count for something.

    I can’t play this on my machine because I don’t know how to install the right Java to play it. All is well. Go buy some daffodils and you really will feel better. Planting flowers is good therapy and that’s what PAPA and I did yesterday. Baby Boy is coming home today or tomorrow and I can’t wait. Me mando mi amor y ojala que todos vaya bein. Te quiero mucho.

    thanks for introducing us.

    i was coming to tell you that of course i would wait til april for you to pick up your basket, but i just saw that you’ve been out bid…just by a mere dollar.

  9. Lindsay says:

    ohhh, i’m gonna have to download this – it’s so pretty! and i might just copy her and get my hair cut exactly like hers – those bangs and layers were beautiful!

  10. Camille says:

    jethro– de rien.

    raygon– I know, I wish I could sing along too. Wind is awful.

    anonymous my sister– That’s partly why I like her so much!

    Tessa– It would be beautiful playing on your iPod in your MINI.

    Chloe– : ) I bet you understood every word of the song, huh? I want to become fluent in French. I know a little, but not as much as I’d like.

    Katie– What else can we do but try?? : )

    Granmamamaam– You’re absolutely right. Flowers would cheer me up immensely.

    niki– Dang. I hate losing.

    Lindsay– You TOTALLY should. I support that decision 100%.

    I don’t know…I think where I live could definitely be the windiest. Our water heater goes out when its windy. But at least our internet is fixed. I spent the first 2 years at our house without internet on windy days. Which is pretty much every day in the spring.

    Striking good looks indeed! And I loved the song. Wish I spoke French. I like April March too and most of her songs are in French. Still like her though. Still wish I spoke French.
