I don't have a foot fetish

From 2006
(just for the record I talked to Chris about yesterday's and today's post and he couldn't remember either. Whatever they are totally true events.)

Not as funny as valentines day but still alittle funny
Okay heres another crazy story about my life........

I want to say first off that I do not have a foot fetish.....

Okay,
So I'm at home watching TV. Keith Urban comes on (who I wasn't really crazy about) with his video Making Memories of Us.
Well in the video he's sitting in a very darkish room, on a bed wearing a blank shirt (dark) jeans, and bare feet. He's playing his
guitar. When I watch this video I get the sense that he is approachable, handsome, real, and heart felt, and he's writing this wonderful song.....



I'm gonna be here for you baby
I'll be a man of my word
Speak the language in a voice that you have never heard
I wanna sleep with you forever
And I wanna die in your arms
In a cabin by a meadow where the wild bees swarm

And I'm gonna love you like nobody loves you
And I'll earn your trust making memories of us

I wanna honor your mother
I wanna learn from your pa
I wanna steal your attention like a bad outlaw
I wanna stand out in a crowd for you
A man among men
I wanna make your world better than it's ever been

And I'm gonna love you like nobody loves you
And I'll earn your trust making memories of us

We'll follow the rainbow
Wherever the four winds blow
And there'll be a new day
Comin' your way

I'm gonna be here for you from now on
This you know somehow
You've been stretched to the limits but it's alright now
And I'm gonna make you a promise
If there's life after this
I'm gonna be there to meet you with a warm, wet kiss

And I'm gonna love you like nobody loves you
And I'll earn your trust making memories of us
I'm gonna love you like nobody loves you
And I'll win your trust making memories of us


What wonderful lyrics. I hope my husband loves me like that.
I know it is a marketing thing to have done this but I fell in love with the whole package. Now I am still not a huge Keith Urban fan but I do love his ballad stuff.
Anyway, He just came out with another song called Tonight I Want To Cry....
In this video he is sitting in a dark house wearing a dark blank shirt, jeans, barefoot, and playing the piano. You get the same feel that he is approachable, handsome, real, heartbroken and if you went in your own living room he'd be right there singing.....



Alone in this house again tonight
I got the TV on, the sound turned down and a bottle of wine
There's pictures of you and I on the walls around me
The way that it was and could have been surrounds me
I'll never get over you walkin' away
I've never been the kind to ever let my feelings show
And I thought that bein' strong meant never losin' your self-control
But I'm just drunk enough to let got of my pain
To hell with my pride, let it fall like rain
From my eyes
Tonight I wanna cry
Would it help if I turned a sad song on
"All By Myself" would sure hit me hard now that you're gone
Or maybe unfold some old yellow lost love letters
It's gonna hurt bad before it gets better
But I'll never get over you by hidin' this way


Oh I have felt that way in my life, and I hope to never revisit that feeling.

In both of Keith Urban's videos its his barefeet that really make it real for me. Whoever did that they were brillant. (he has other videos with barefeet)
So, I was watching the VH1 and there was James Blunt singing his song You're Beautiful.
The first time I heard that song I was watching the video. I was thinking why is that weirdo taking his clothes off in the freezing snow. Then the second time I saw it I listened to the words and thought I love this song and I love the simple video. The more I saw it and heard it the better looking he got.



My life is brilliant.
My love is pure.
I saw an angel.
Of that I'm sure.
She smiled at me on the subway.
She was with another man.
But I won't lose no sleep on that,
'Cause I've got a plan.
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.
Yeah, she caught my eye,
As we walked on by.
She could see from my face that I was,
high,
And I don't think that I'll see her again,
But we shared a moment that will last till the end.
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
I saw you face in a crowded place,
And I don't know what to do,
'Cause I'll never be with you.
You're beautiful. You're beautiful.
You're beautiful, it's true.
There must be an angel with a smile on her face,
When she thought up that I should be with you.
But it's time to face the truth,
I will never be with you.


What girl wouldn't want that kind of moment. Your in a crowded place and you look across the room and for a moment someone looked, really looked at you ,and thought I could be with you then he sees you with someone else and realizes I can never be with you. I think its all about shallow things I guess but I think there is alittle shallowness in all of us.

Wow these are some great tunes. So I do not know what came over me. I shared all of these thoughts with my husband. Who now thinks I am insane. So now whenever he thinks hes being cute he will say I will sing to you in my bare feet. Or he will start sing 'you're beautiful' while taking his shoes and socks off.
WHAT A JERK.
